The trouble with having been in the scene for 12+ years, and having been a toy slut for many of those years, is that my tastes are now growing much more expensive.
At the Flea, I couldn't find anything that really interested me in the vendor mart... ok... the metal vendor with the cages was kind of hot. But at MAL, my eyes went towards the expensive lines of clothing. Thus the new Hawt Leather Pants of Boymeat Hawtness +10 (tm).
Now, I am lusting after 3 specific items. One would set me back $450-600... another $900+... and yet a third probably in the range of $1,000-$1,400.
To think I remember when a $100 flogger would send me to heaven. (Mind you, they still do, it's just that I have them already.)
Guess I better start saving them pennies!
