After a mini heat wave a week or so ago, we're having another one... and today it is nearly 85F in San Francisco. Yesterday was almost as hot, and last night it barely cooled down. Which meant some special challenges for a session with a new client up in the Oakland Hills...

They are really interested (amongst other things) in inescapable leather bondage, and they have a collection of high-quality leather restraints - including a beautiful heavy duty leather straightjacket. But once we got them strapped in and started playing, it quickly became apparent that they were heating up dreadfully - to the extent that I seriously worried about heat exhaustion. At one point I had them spreadeagled over a couch, which was getting wetter and wetter from sweat pouring off them! We tried administering iced water, which can be pretty tricky when they are in a straightjacket. But eventually we had to conclude that last night wasn't the night for that kind of play.

O well... Something to remember for the future... And there are lots of other play alternatives on a hot night. Such as being naked on a deck overlooking the Bay...
