IronTempleDog is a kinky, polyamorous photographer and kink educator who walked away from a life of drudgery to chase his dreams. His most frequent identities include cis-male, polysexual, top, mad & consensual accomplice. He likes leather, rope, rough body play, cigar play, whiskey, bootblacking, boots in general, taboo, transgressive things of all sorts, vikings, his beard and orgasms. Some of his recent interests are the intersection of kink and flow states & peak experiences, critical conversations about consent, effective scene negotiations, and edge-play. Old saws still holding on hard from his punk days include anti-capitalism, anti-colonialism, anti-fascism, awareness of privilege, awareness of intersections and personal accountability. He is often much less intense in person than he is in print. Not the beard though. It’s pretty intense.
