Trading Some Iron: My Interview With Chino, 2009 Iron Dom

By Master Erik, Publisher

In 2008, I had the fortune of winning The Iron Dom Competition--a fun yet grueling contest where contestants are called upon to use McGyver-like resourcefulness and Broadway-like showmanship...all in the course of a couple of hours, without knowing what the other competitors are making or who'll be your "stunt bottom" for the contest. In August, I had the honor of being one of the Judges for Iron Dom 2009---and the pleasure of passing on the crown to Chino, who gave by far the performance of the evening! I recently caught up with Chino and had a chance to chit-chat a little about the experience that is the Iron Dom Competition...

[Eric} "So, before anything else, I'd like to be one of many to say CONGRATULATIONS to You for winning the title of Iron Dom 2009. What prompted you to enter The Iron Dom Competition?"

[Chino] Thank you. I'm honored to have won the title. My buddy Rope told me about the competition and asked if I was interested in being a contestant. I was familiar with the Frugal Dom, but I hate to say this, had never heard of the Iron Dom. The contest sounded both challenging and fun and the fact that it was a fundraiser made it even more appealing to me. I wanted to get more involved in the leather community and saw this as a way of fulfilling that desire.

[Eric] "Being a past Iron Dom Titleist, I can relate to this scenario: You & the other contestants have just picked up your bags of sit down at your dump your materials out on your workspace...what was your first reaction when you saw what you had to work with?"

[Chino] WOW!! What am I gonna do with all this?! I sorted through the items, separated them one by one on the table and tried to imagine what they could each become; what diabolical monsters I could create. I then went over to other items we could use and grabbed scissors, glue, duct tape, tacks, and a hammer. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them, but I thought they would be necessary.

[Eric] "For those readers who didn't make it out to this years event, care to share what you made?"

[Chino] I made a ball gag out of a...what was it, a lemon? I don't even know what type of fruit it was, but it was yellow! And a rubber hose, a tit tantalizer using sandpaper glued around a dowel with two pegs for handles at either end, a sensory deprivation mask out of a place mat. I made openings for the eyes, it covered the mouth and ears. I put tacks in a wooden spoon and it became reversible for nice whacks on one side and sharp pricks on the other and a few other items I used in the scene. We were given fabric, a paperback book, rubber tube, a squash, squeeze bottle, one zipper, rubber band thing, rope, and a wooden spoon.

[Eric] "OK now---let's talk about that show-stopping scene for the judges & the audience..."

[Chino] Show stopping? WOW...thanks...Okay...My stunt bottom was great by the way, he went along with the scene perfectly and improvised right along with me. He helped make the scene work.

Before I went on I wrote down what I was going to do and what toys I was going to use then put them in order of use on the judges table. I guess being a former dancer I felt more comfortable choreographing the scene step by step.

I had the bottom tie the children's book " Ramona ", by Beverly Clearly on his head and get on his hands and knees...a little humiliation. To add mind fucking to the scene, I whispered in his ear, "I'm going to pee all over you." I straddled him, unzipped the zipper near his ears as if it were my pants, and squirted warm water from the restaurant ketchup squeeze bottle they gave us on his back and the back of his head. I added some pelvic gyrations for the audience's pleasure. I zipped the zipper back up. When I had him stand up he saw me adjusting my pants, as if I were zipping them back up.

I fashioned a dildo out of the squash and rope. I didn't know if I would have a male or female bottom, but that vegetable was going in some hole somewhere. The bottom let me know that squash wasn't going to be able to go anywhere so we pretended that he put it in his ass and he tied it in place around his waist. I then had him put the ball gag in his mouth and helped adjust the rubber tube around the back of his head to hold it in place. The mask was then put over his face, his hands were tied behind his back with the fabric, and I tortured him with the sandpaper and the spoon on his itty bitty titties.

I was done, except I was told I had one more song. So the bottom and I danced as we played through the torture scene. I dropped the spoon and decided to use my hands and drummed to the music on his ass for the finale.

[Eric] "What'd you think about...the MUSIC?? Was it as mind-wrenching as we'd made it out to be? (For the record, I s-t-i-l-l can't get "Put the lime in the coconut..." outa my head! LOL)"

[Chino] I loved the music. You can laugh if you want. I think I knew the words to all the songs. People who know me well will agree with that. The music helped me relax while making the toys. I was shaking my booty to a few numbers. My musical tastes are eclectic, maybe that's because I was raised in Berkeley, I don't know. I grew up with much of the music played. I went to see the Beach Boys at Day on the Green, I watched Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello beach party movies, she was so hot, Gilligan's Island, I grew up with Harry Belafonte, one of my parent's favorites, singing the Banana Boat song, and I like Put the Lime in the Coconut...Aahhhhh good times, good it just me...?

[Eric] "Winning Iron Dom 2008 was very beneficial for me, as I used the leverage of it to promote my toymaking workshops--it greatly increased attendance at them! How do you see being Iron Dom 2009 being beneficial to you in the BDSM, Leather, Kink & Fetish community?"

[Chino] I believe the win will allow me to meet more people in the BDSM, Leather, Kink & Fetish community and to be a part of projects that will help that community. I'm also interested in educating those who are unfamiliar or curious about BDSM, Leather and Kink, and in fundraising for not just our needs, but the needs of the communities we live. I think we can choose projects that benefit where we live regardless of whether or not they are BDSM.

[Eric] "What keeps you active in the community these days? (Organizations, workshops, D/s relationships, etc) How long have you been involved in the community?"

[Chino] I've been a Sadist for most of my life, but it wasn't until about three years ago that I became more interested and involved in the BDSM community...more because of a lack of knowledge than a lack of desire. I've been attending leather events and workshops, and have done some volunteering over the past few years. I got to perform at ImsL 2008, that was fun.

For the past several years I've been in a relationship with my partner, Bubblinsugare. Our relationship started out naturally as Daddy/ girrl, evolved into D/s, and continues to grow and evolve. She's been very active in the queer and leather community as an emcee, which has kept me involved as well. I'm also a butch stripper and occasionally give a lap dance or take my clothes off for charity.

I recently joined the Alameda County Leather Corps after looking at other organizations and was impressed by ACLC's gender, age, and ethnic diversity, their commitment to educating the public, and their camaraderie.

[Eric] "What kind of helpful advice can you pass on to readers considering competing for Iron Dom 2010?"

[Chino] Be creative, think outside the box, and have fun.
