I used to come here a lot a few years back, when SMplace was a genuine community. I got to know some people well, learned a lot, and felt like I was able to help guide a few people. Smplace was my first kink home on the Net. I stopped coming here about a year ago. The community was basically gone by that point, and the site had been over-run with the inescapable pop-up ads that continue to plague it. As a gay man, the constant barrage of tits and hetero fucking in the ads was incredibly alienating, and it stopped feeling like home. So, like pretty much everyone else who cared about this site, I left. But I always felt bad about that. Like I said, this place was once my home. So, I guess I figured I should just stop in one last time, look around for nostalgia's sake, and formally say goodbye. In case any of the old gang are looking for me, you can find me at Fetlife (of course) as Sebastianb. And remember kids, play safe, sane, and consensual.
