For those of you not familiar, IML (imrl.com) is one of the largest gatherings of Leatherfolk, Kinksters and Gear Fetishists in the world. It’s always held Memorial Day Weekend (May 27-30 this year) in Chicago. Our city will be represented in this year’s competition by Drew Kramer, who won the Mr. Palm Springs Leather 2011 title during November’s Leather Pride (desertleatherpride.com). Good luck Drew, and have fun!
It seems like every year there is always some sort of political uproar or controversy surrounding the contest (and last year was no exception!), but I choose not to get swept up in such things. The reality is that everyone who competes is already a winner and when you’re trying to select one representative from such a talented, dedicated and sexy group of entrants someone is always bound to be disappointed with the result.
The real reason I attend IML is for the brotherhood and friendships, amazing vendor market, no-attitude dance parties and the incredible feeling that comes from having thousands of men just like you gathered together to celebrate their sexual freedom – all while decked out in their coolest gear.
I can’t imagine staying anywhere but the host hotel, which this year is none other than the world-famous Hyatt Regency Chicago (bit.ly/jRJA0B). The hotel environment is always electric and fueled with testosterone. The lobby itself is a sight to behold as it begins to fill on Thursday and remains packed all weekend with the hottest Leathermen on the planet!
Any time you travel to a major leather event, it’s worth prepping ahead of time to insure that you both look your best and have the most fun. Here’s how I get ready for IML, along with some of my favorite things to do at the event.

Our buddy Ox has done it again! Now there are two more cock and ball toys in the Oxballs ultra-FLEX TPR arsenal!
If you like jelly cockrings, then you’ll love the new Powerball ring. You can stretch it to gigantic sizes and it won’t break, plus the three anti-slip balls at the bottom are engineered specially to make it stay put. Finally a jelly ring which doesn’t slide up your balls and lose effectiveness! Available in all eight colors shown.
The Splitsling is another variation on the world-famous Cocksling, this time with an added ball splitter (very much like the Oxballs Splitz). If you always wished your Cocksling had some added ball support and enhancement, then this is the perfect accessory for you! Available in Black, Clear, Red, Blue and Yellow.
At the moment these toys are a Gear exclusive and only available online (click the links above for more pix and to order), but we’ll also have them in the store later in the week. And don’t forget, because of our special relationship with Ox, our web shop always has every new toy the minute it is released, plus it’s just about the only place there is that carries the entire Oxballs line. Shop us first for all of your favorite butt and cock and ball toys!
