    No thanks. But you pretty much summed the weekend up. I've gone twice myself in 2006 and 2008, primarily to the Saturday night "blackout" (or whatever they call it). The first time I went was a definite eye opener. I was actually good both times, just observing and not partaking in any of the xtracurricular happenings. I wore jeans and a t-shirt both times.

    I guess the one thing about IML is that the organization plays on being accepting of everyone, which is why the 89% who have no business being half naked in leather chooses to be. I give them props dressing like that in public since I can only imagine the stares they get when walking up and down Michigan Avenue and eating at various downtown establishments.

    I'm debating on going this year. I will admit I'm into more bearish guys and IML does have their share. But I don't know if I want to go since my ex, who is big on the event may show himself and I rather not have the awkward moment that'll entail.

    Enjoy IML, boys and men!!! It's just great to see men of all sizes and types celebrate their fetishes. If you have a problem -- don't attend. If you do -- embrace the event and be safe, please.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidI haven't gone in about three or four years.

    This is what you can expect:

    Thousands of men come here from all over the world to partake in the festivities of IML. Since most men are into leather you can expect to find a lot of men with the most unusual fetishes. There will be people parading around in leather during the day, in some very skimpy outfits I might add. And about 89% of these men don't have the bodies to pull it off. About 3% of the men are super-uber hot. About another 16% are hot or attractive and the remaining percentage (which seems to increase every year) are guys that don't really tend to their bodies and too many of them don't use deodorant and purposely withhold the use of soap to their armpits. That awful stench that so many leather boys seem to like.

    You'll see men in uniforms.. hot.

    You'll see sex toys and all sorts of leather clad to buy at the mart. Bring your credit cards to make some purchases.

    Since you will be expecting lots of sex..and don't try to deny it, you little whore you....! prepared to encounter a large number of men that are into bareback sex. No judgment here, I'm just letting you know. You may find it hard to find guys that will want to use condoms. A lot of the bareback porn companies come to this event to film and recruit new talent. There are bareback sex parties advertised everywhere.

    There is a lot of alcohol and a few circuit like party events each night. If I'm not mistaken and things haven't changed the events start on Thursday and there is something happening every night including Sunday. The following Monday the majority of out of town folks goes home. Oh and there's loads of drugs like crystal meth and extstacy.

    Typical scenario is hang with your buddies during the day, go to the mart, eventually give in and buy yourself some leather and also that cute leather thong you know your slutty ass looks oh so good in, talk and meet new people, check out the restaurants in downtown Chicago while all the tourists unrelated to IML look at you all and stare..in fear...or shock...maybe a combination of the two. Inside your mind you're laughing at yourself for having the balls to wear a leather harness and leather cap with chaps while walking down Michigan Ave., go to the dance party of the night, go to the orgy of eighty guys or more, tuck yourself in around 7am, sleep until 3pm the next day and repeat everyday until Sunday.

    I think this about covers it. icon_idea.gificon_idea.gificon_idea.gif


    WOW.... i think i will go for a hike instead...

    There's still plenty of awesome things to see in Chicago. Just being downtown and seeing the hustle bustle and cars honking every second is a show.

    Speaking of shows...IML season has officially started. Play safe guys! icon_biggrin.gif

    I went with friends and had a great time. It was like Dore Alley/Folsom Street Fair, only in a hotel for 3 days. Looking forward to next year.

    I was following the competition on Twitter, since we had a friend competing. He didn't finish in the top 3, which makes me wonder, since he's like 10 times hunkier and more handsome than the 3 winners, and also bright & articulate. Oh, well, these things are unpredictable... icon_sad.gif

    I love Chicago and would love to be a fly on the wall at some point in my life at IML.

    With that said, the only thing remotely close to leather that I own is: A nice leather jacket and a casual wrist cuff that I can wear with a t-shirt and jeans. The leather scene has always appealed to me and yes, hopefully one day the hard work on the gym will pay off so that I can sport a harness and not look like a tool.

    I am sure me and my BF would love to be there for the people watching, but would want to get the hell out of dodge when the evening rolls in.
