Happy Birthday Fakir!

The very first thing everyone should be doing today is wishing Fakir Musafar a happy birthday! Now, some things are remembered with a moment of silence, but I think that the best thing to do for this day is to photograph your body play — your body art, modifications, rituals… The list of Fakir’s contributions to this community is so long I couldn’t possibly do it justice in a single posting, but I think one of the most important was his drive to document this community, beginning with himself, be that in his private world, or that which he shared with the world in PFIQ and Body Play and other media. Anyway, Fakir is the greatest, he was there at the start making this world and this community a better place, and he’s still going strong, and I expect and hope he will continue to for a long time yet.
