Hi – I'm Lorrett, Number One Slavegirl. My job is to make you comfortable, introduce you to the Fantasy Makers and slip you hot news from the Playhouse every month.

BE THE FIRST TO KNOW!

We update our web page only once every month. To get an e-mail when we post the update, announce visits by former Fantasy Makers who moved away, or post other last-minute announcements, join FMChatter, our Yahoo e-group. First, sign up for Yahoo groups HERE, then join our group. The only“real” information you have to give them is an e-mail address to send your updates. If you want an anonymous online e-mail address, Mail.com is a good bet, and their basic service is free.

In between updates, keep an eye on our social media connections. You can follow Fantasymakerssf on Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram, where Ladies post new pictures, announce schedule changes and surprise visits, and talk about whatever’s on their minds. Ladies who fill in “rotating” shifts on short notice often announce them on Tumblr. New Ladies post sneak previews there before they pop up on the website! You can also join our FetLife group, “Fantasy Makers and Friends”. If you don’t already know, FetLife.com is the social go-to site for anyone with fetish or fantasy interests. It’s a good place to explore your kink: join some groups and get into some discussions. Go see for yourself, and happy browsing.

WHAT'S NEW:

WOO-HOO, we have a new roof, and a bunch of solar panels on it! First, our landscape artist replaced the side gate – it’s beautiful, and doesn’t get stuck any more. Then the installers arrived. Both of the companies told us their projects would last two days, but both teams finished in one, leaving lots of parking open the next day. For those of you who weren’t here sharing the fun, there were a bunch of trucks in front for the last two Monday mornings. It sometimes sounded like Santa’s sleigh was on the roof, complete with eight tiny reindeer, but it was just four very efficient guys.

Next: the carpenters will arrive on Monday the 21st, replacing all the siding and trim that’s worn out and ugly. That will take a few days. They’ll have only a truck or two, so parking will be better. Finally, around the 28th, they’ll start painting, but “It ain’t paint” – it’s high-tech ceramic! You’ve heard the Rhino Shield commercials – soon, you’ll be seeing the stuff for real.

We’ll be here on all our usual days, taking appointments. We’re being a bit more flexible than usual with our hours this month, so if you want to schedule something after hours, ask us. Until everything is done, I’ll announce any changes on Chatter, and also post them on Tumblr.

If quiet is your thing, after-4 appointments are your best bet on construction days. Even on the most hectic days, the work crews will finish up at 4 PM or so, and things will be more normal in the evenings. Construction folks work Monday to Friday, so you might want to schedule your appointment on a Saturday, or (if you already know us) a special appointment on a Sunday. If you want special scheduling, be sure to email the lady you want to see (with advance notice, please!) and ask her what she can do.

We’re using professional companies for the outdoor repairs and painting, but Naomi, Kevin and the ladies have some plans for interior decoration; we’re a pack of artists and very talented people around here! We may still need a handful of competent, drama-free volunteers, and that might mean you, to help us move stuff around. We may need a person or two who’s comfortable at the top of a tall ladder. If you have skills you’d like to offer, and if you’re an aspiring Boy (or Girl) Scout, please email me: FMCreative@fantasymakers.com. Tell me a little about your experience and availability, and I’ll pass your message on.

...OH, AND BY THE WAY...

Remember September, and Folsom Street Fair!
As always, we’re making our plans to be there,
Raising funds for St. James Infirmary, sure enough,
So come out and see us, showing off our stuff!
Sunday, September 24th is the day...
Mark up your calendar, come out and play!

VACATIONS AND OTHER SCHEDULE EXCEPTIONS:
It’s hard to keep up with all the comings and goings, especially this year, but that’s what makes us special. One or two day absences (or appearances) come up on short notice: “sneak previews”, visiting “graduate” Fantasy Makers, you name it. We “usually” get some notice about vacations, so we post those on the schedule page, as accurately as we can, so you can plan ahead, but for up-to-the minute information about who’s here, please give us a call.

THE PHOTOGRAPHERS’ GALLERY

is an intro to the camera artists who fill our pages with their images, with links to their web pages where that’s appropriate. It’s a great place to peek once in a while. When we hear that a photographer is inactive or not posting fetish images, we suspend their galleries so we can announce them when they send us new work.

ARRANGING APPOINTMENTS

Have a peek at our FAQ page If you’re not sure how to schedule an appointment by phone or by e-mail.

IF YOU'D LIKE INDIVIDUAL INSTRUCTION:

Yes, you can arrange a private training session or two here at the Playhouse, either by yourself or with your partner. A lot of novices and couples have enjoyed being able to “try things out” with experienced people in a safe place. See our FAQ for more about this.

THE HOUSE THAT FRIENDS BUILD

This is a safe, friendly place to enjoy yourself and be yourself. We intend to keep it that way. Our friends who helped build the second floor made our house big enough, and our friends who volunteer their time, talents and ideas keep things interesting. Just to make sure our "angels" feel appreciated, here come the THANK YOU’s.

Thanks, as always, to our plumber, who keeps us in (and out of) hot water, and to the hero who claims to be our One True Vanilla Friend, and is always around in a pinch. Thanks to all the other fellows who don’t want to be mentioned by name, but help us with projects, and help keep the house fixed-up and shining. Thanks to the Mountain Man – he’s always here for us. A thousand thanks to the Party God – for a thousand things. Thanks to our volunteer photographers, who have the terrible job of being commanded, wheedled, seduced and otherwise persuaded to take pictures of these gorgeous women. Poor babies, we’ll try to make it up to you!

ARE YOU A HERO?

I’ve already mentioned the big August project, but there are always things we need around here to keep the Playhouse humming, so read on, read on!

What can you do? Well, the first thing is to come see us when you can, and have fun here. If you visit forum or fetish sites online, talk about us! The very best advertising comes from word of mouth, and word of mouse! Another thing is, if you see something about us online that you know isn’t true, say so.  Everybody has the right to voice their opinion, but sometimes those opinions create misunderstandings.  It helps when people who know what we’re like speak out when something isn’t right.

If you’re saddling up and dusting off your White Hat, please start out with a peek at our FAQ, then drop me an e-mail at FMCreative@fantasymakers.com. Tell me what kind of hero you want to be, and let’s make it happen. Remember, no good deed will go unpunished. Or is that "unpublished"? <grin>

THE UNOFFICIAL FANTASY MAKERS’ LIBRARY:
If you’ve visited the Playhouse, you’ve probably spent a little time in the Welcome Room, enjoying the suspense before being whisked off by the avatar of your fantasy. Or maybe reading one of the magazines we keep around for hospitality...

But a magazine stash needs to be freshened-up from time to time, so we do two things. If someone sees a magazine they’d like to take home, and we’ve had it for a while, we let them (but please ask first – a few have sentimental value). If someone wants to donate some magazines they’re tired of, we let them – subject to space on our shelves. If either or both of these things apply to you, please feel free to say so.

ENCYCLOPEDIC KINK:

SM-201.org the WikiPedia of kink, is back online! If you want to know what it is, where it is, why it is, what it was like way-back-when, or whatever else scratches your itchy curiosity, this is the place to look. It's a project of BackDrop.net, the first kinky social group that was available to the California public. Among BackDrop's innovations was a "sessions group" that gave people like you a chance to have kinky sessions with real lifestyle players like us. 20 years later we moved into the Playhouse and started calling ourselves Fantasy Makers, but Robin and BackDrop wrote the book.

One More Thing.

One more thing. I write this column to keep you up to date on our doings, so I try to avoid making it a forum for outside matters. But some "outside matters" can't be ignored, especially when people try to keep us from enjoying our fantasy pursuits in peace. The folks who want to destroy everything they can't understand work very hard.

The organizations that defend our right to be different are heroes indeed. It's because of them that places like ours stay available. They’re constantly in need of help and support. If you can offer them time, knowledge, or money even as little as a dollar or two a month adds up you're doing something to protect this part of your life.

Remember, our local social and educational groups need our support more than ever. Only we can make sure they’ll be around when we want and need them, not to mention the good they do by "demystifying" fetish interests for mainstream folks.

To connect with these groups, check our HOT LINKS page. Organizations like the Center for Sex and Culture and St. James Infirmary are especially deserving (and needful) of help in these financially-uncertain times. If you can help, please consider it...we do all we can to keep you guys happy – by donating to St. James, you help keep ladies like us healthy.

I think that's all for now. Stay tuned. Remember, join FMChatter if you want up-to-the-minute bulletins. Keep an eye on our Tumblr blog: Share on Tumblr. If you have questions or comments, please feel free to call: (510) 234 7887, Monday Saturday, 10 AM 8 PM Pacific time.
