Gratitude, as a way in
Solo practice
Pain as a portal to enlightenment
Masculinity & femininity
In his youth Mac Messer attracted partners who desired being held down, which with excesses of height and lanky arms he obliged easily. In the years since he's adopted certain more artful ways of restraining his partners and has explored various grooves - archetypal, political, sexual, mythic and aesthetic - in which masculine and feminine energies flow and combine, and how loving containment can transform them.
Some four decades of writing, study, and practice have persuaded Mac that ways are many, but beacons are few. For him the beacon appeared as rope bondage, latter day heir to countless traditions in ecstatic practice that skirt the limits of endurance and perception (and propriety) to, as Goethe posits, “die and become”; to experience birth again, but with agency. Mac ventures that the struggle of finding and following any signal in a noisy world, of reconciling one's kink to conventional mores, of authoring a personal myth to give context to one's sexuality, ends up being both a way and a practice, a modus vivendi for not only finding, but securely binding one's gifts.
Mac doesn't have a platform, an Instagram, a course or a book, but he loves connecting directly (like on Sweet Blasphemy) to get under the skin of kink, caress its heart, study its structure and drill to its soft marrow. His rigging on Youtube has collectively garnered some 35 million views, he's here and there on (other's) social media, for some reason keeps a Fetlife page and occasionally hears of his stuff showing up on legacy rope porn sites. These days Mac separates signal from noise by rigging for figurative artists and fine art photographers.
