Through mutual acquaintance, we had a couple of burgin, vanilla guys from Canada camping with us this year. One of them had to get back to college and the other ended up riding back to Ventura with me and help unload, clean and put everything away for a week. He was a true blessing and a refreshing source of encouragement who literally was unknown to me prior to his arrival on the playa.

While striking the camp and loading the Mother ship, I found this:

On the back, he wrote:
MDFOSTERTEXTtiny.jpg
MDFOSTERTEXTtiny.jpg (35.37 KiB) Viewed 2773 times

"Thank you thank you thank you! Yes it's true we are leaving now and some might be blue. For pleasure and pain are one in the same and the people are not as insane as you think or might have thunk. Just take a look into their trunk of whips and chains no two are the same and it is a pretty fun game.

So go at your leisure and take on some pain or some pleasure because it too can be fun and neat or a kinky treat to beat their meat or your seat. It's pretty sweet to see everyone get along - sing shout scream!

Ring the bell like hell when someone steps up to suck a cock! Suck one cock, two cock, three cocks please! And a certified cocksucker you will be!

Oh this place you shall see get down on your knees, strapped to a bed, a cross and let us tickle your fetish to tease, because we aim to please!

Nice rear! See you next year! We're done here! But have no fear, Camp Frolic will be back again next year I hope.

By the way, pick up some MOOP! All walks of life are appreciated here. Be yourself! Let your inner freak out and burn all year!

Thanks again!!!

With so much love"

-M. Foster

BEST:

The Inconvenience Store my friends the Miscreants put on.

I came by their camp one day and they had all this stuff they gave to people who forgot things and I thought to myself hey, I could use a pack travel wet wipes so I asked em for one.

They made me take a shot of the worst, spiciest, warmest tequila ever out of a pee funnel and then do 10 jumping jacks.
Almost threw up.

So awesome.

I didn't see "vanilla" as a sexual slur. I saw it as a detail in a sweet story about friendships across identity boundaries.

Best - I had a choice of frozen ice cream flavors made before my very eyes using nitrogen. I chose a coconut milk, coffee liquor, and mocha as ingrediants; I probably chose that concoction because I am a french canadian vanilla hating racist fuck. And I may be sexist.
Another unexpected best - Realizing just how fun being a bigot can be.

Another BEST:

The last thing I did on Playa was use one of the 5:30 portojohns. Not only was it clean (on Monday night) but had toilet paper, AND...best of all a poem by either Figjam or Ygmr (sorry can't remember which) posted on the inside door.
