Whew, that's a long list.  Although it's not likely that I'll want to spend much time at the display for TLC Tugger Foreskin Restoration, there are a lot of vendors there I would like to check out.  Who knows what goodies might be found at such an event?

ShibariCon 2012 is also in the Chicago region this Memorial Day weekend.  The list of vendors for ShibariCon is much shorter than IML2012, so it's not too likely we'd have the time or inclination to swing by the Hyatt Regency O'Hare to whet our shopping appetite, but ya never know . . . 


  1. Sounds like it'll be a fun road trip! Have a great time! Also, thanks very much for the links! We'll be checking out these companies!

  2. I'm still working through the list of links myself. We have friends who went and very much enjoyed the vendors last year, and they are invited to come along with us, so we should have a great time. Thanks for your comment . . .

  3. WTF! My sole reason for going is to visit TLC Tugger Foreskin Restoration, Nasty Pig and Jock Strap Art!
