On November 28, taking advantage of the huge gathering of leatherfolk and bears in town for Santa Saturday®-the exclusive, registered trademarked name belonging to the Bucks MC for its fundraising event, held that afternoon at the Paradise-party givers Joe Fiore and Robert Valin and photographer Joe Oppedisano, among others threw the Ride-Asbury Park party, unaffiliated with the earlier event, at the nearby Stone Pony.
We watched Mike Dreyden dance and, later, Torez dance and administer a spanking.
We witnessed Joe Oppedisano, fascinating to observe in action, setting up and conducting several photo shoots. The first featured the unbearably sexy Torez, posed in various alluring positions, and 2009 North East Bootblack Kyle, several shots involving a cigar, both lit and unlit, and inserted in one unexpected orifice. Then Oppedisano, in apron, jock and boots, shaved an excited young man's hair down to a Mohawk, stopping to photograph and document the progress of the haircut. Then he gagged the young man, who was by now wearing just a studded jock, with the gag attached to a leash held by a tattooed model. Oppedisano cast Dreyden as a prizefighter, complete with black eye, oiled him up, and photographed him in boxing trunks and gloves.
The event added the perfect finishing frisson to an already exhilarating day.
