Learning tit torture from Tony Buff

I’m sitting on the deck of the Black Eagle on Church St with notebook and pen, tilting my head to the side to peer around a pair of leather daddies who are blocking my view of today’s educational demonstration. Of course, this being the Black Eagle, we’re not learning about business management or how to write book proposals. Instead, Raging Stallion/Falcon Studios exclusive pornstar Tony Buff is teaching the crowd how to get their kink on safely.
 
Buff starts off by tying a tattooed, punk-rock-looking man to a beam, his hands securely fastened above his head. “Simple,” he describes it, although simple may be a relative term here. Adoring onlookers edge in closer, and Buff politely, but firmly, reminds them to “respect the fetish forcefield,” pointing to the circle of leather vests placed around him with the title of his line, Fetish Force, emblazoned on the back.
 
See what he did there?
 
Once his victim – I mean teacher’s aide – has been secured to the beam, Buff pulls out what looks like a pair of thin, stainless steel scissors. He tells the crowd the thing is a hemostat, a commonly used surgical clamp meant to control bleeding, but today it will be used for tit torture. I suddenly feel as though Grey’s Anatomy would be way less shitty if the producers incorporated nipple play into the show.
 
But there’s a slight hiccup: the hemostat seems to have become jammed during transport. With a little elbow grease and the assistance of his boy, Gloria, it’s all fixed and ready to be used as the manufacturer intended: for sex-making.
 
Buff pinches his partner’s tit and clamps the hemostat down on the nipple before pulling out about a dozen more of the devices from his bag. The crowd oohs and ahhs appreciatively but dutifully remains outside the parameters of the fetish forcefield. Buff continues to clamp more of them on his teacher’s aide’s body, leaving hemostats on the nipples and down along the abs. To top it off, Buff points out that the devices have “variable settings,” pinching his partner’s tits even harder with infectiously twisted glee. The crowd applauds enthusiastically.
 
After the tutorial, once his assistant has been untied and the medical devices safely stored, Buff is kind enough to chat with Xtra about his fetish demo.
 
“I am extremely grateful to the Black Eagle Toronto for giving me this opportunity to be here to celebrate Toronto Leather Pride with my community of family friends,” he says over the din of leather daddies. “And for allowing me to share my passion for fetish and S&M through classes and demos at the bar that encourage responsible play.”
 
I thank Buff for his time and for coming to Toronto, and once home, I scour the internet to figure out where the hell I can get medical supplies. I figure it’s about time I start working on exploring my latent Dr McKinky fantasies.
