Join OhioSMART on Saturday July 20th for our monthly educational night! This month we present

Bootblacking 101

So, you love leather…the look, the feel, the smell, the functionality of it. But do you know how to care for it? For many of us, our leather is an extension of ourselves and needs be maintained to extend its life. This class will review basic tools, products, and techniques so that you can lovingly tend to the leather in your life.

Lorelei strives to create an interactive and encouraging setting. In this class there is a hands-on, show and tell style review of the products and tools. Followed by a demonstration of basic cleaning, conditioning, and polishing. The group is encouraged to move around to get a better look and ask questions throughout the process.

Presenter Bio

Lorelei Siren, the 2019 Ohio Bootblack, is a service-oriented, sadomasochist who joined the public kink community in 2013. Though extensively trained in many areas of service, one of Lorelei’s greatest passions is the sensuous, meticulous ritual of bootblacking. It was her love of bootblacking that lead her to make the leap into the leather community in 2015.

Lorelei is a leader of CBC-CLE (Cigars, Boots & Chocolate, Cleveland), a member of OhioSMART, and has been a member of the CLAW bootblack crew for the past two years. She has lead demos/classes over the past couple years and looks forward to many more opportunities to share with others.

When at home, Lorelei enjoys pampering her partner through bootblacking, wet shaving, foot worship, and cigar service. She is very excited to formally share her knowledge with all of you.

SMART Beginnings- Flagging with db11

No, not vexillology: we're talking about the hanky code! Simply put, it's the traditional practice of using bandana color and placement to indicate what you like and how you like it.

Where did the code come from? Who is allowed to flag? What are some of the most common flags? What are ways you can flag other than bandanas in pockets? What's the etiquette when you see someone flagging what you're into?

Involved in OhioSMART since 2016, db11 is a queer disaster, bootblack, reaction junkie, moderator of SMART Queers.
