This doesn't really need to be in the sexfilter.

So I got a MedicAlert catalog today, and they're advertising new bracelet styles. One particular subset looks like cat collars.

And I am like "Huh. You know. If I ever do start going to playparties again? I really should probably have a MedicAlert collar."

I have leatherworking friends. This can happen. At *least* a MedicAlert tag on my cuffs.

What? Temporal lobe epileptic switches have to think about these things!

That's delightful.
I love it.

It has to do with sex, kink, and utter practicality. I'm not surprised you love it. :)

I must ditto this. Kink and practicality go hand-in-glove for me. [Pun intended.]

I am doomed to being an eminently practical creature.

My cocktail dresses have pockets.

Do not leave out it also has implicit consent aspects in the idea of being fully informed.

BINGO!

W00t! I win!

I'll have to ask a few of my playparty attending friends about this one, because a number of them also have such bracelets. And a friends "deniable" collar also looks pretty much like the chain in my lady's bracelet, but in a thicker gage.

Just so you know, I clicked the cut-tag specifically because it said BDSM. And I think that's a fantastic idea.

Me, too.

My medAlert bracelet looks like an ID bracelet so I normally just keep it on. I would love something like a wrist cuff type thing to be more "domly" as I will not ever be wearing a collar again.

Wouldn't a medicalert tag hanging off a collar be more practical (and easier to get)?

I have a MedicAlert bracelet & a necklace somewhere. Haven't worn either on in years. (Condition hasn't changed, just find 'em both a nuisance to wear)
23rd-Sep-2009 08:52 pm (UTC)
I have a MedicAlert bracelet, but don't wear it, as it is ugly. *makes face* Everyone I'm likely to play with knows that I have a MedicAlert card in my wallet, though, and how to tell if I'm seizing.
23rd-Sep-2009 09:54 pm (UTC)
Yeah, they're pretty ugly. =( Someone got me a gold (real gold) MedicAlert tag I could hang off a necklace, but dunno where that ended up. Never was much one for bling... ;)

I got the simple medicalert bracelet and modified it. Remind me, and I'll show you sometime.
23rd-Sep-2009 09:04 pm (UTC) - MMMM...
a collar would help greatly.
24th-Sep-2009 12:48 am (UTC)
Professionally, I never saw one of those in the wild.
24th-Sep-2009 12:49 am (UTC)
I am innovative! Yay!

Even (Apparently) Non-Kinky Me likes the way you think. *ups his thumb, thumbs-up-ingly*

(...no, the thumb's not up anything.)

(Hi.)
24th-Sep-2009 03:13 am (UTC)
I think it is a fabulous idea! Yay for you! :-)
24th-Sep-2009 03:37 am (UTC)
are they any less fugly than typical MedicAlert tags?

although i guess i really don't have to worry about it atm since i don't leave the house without someone who knows my issues

I did exactly this for a friend in Hawaii. She hated the chain bracelet and asked if I could make her a set of cuffs with the tag riveted to one of them.

I ended up making her a bunch of stuff, but that's another story.

Nifty!
24th-Sep-2009 09:01 pm (UTC)
The thing I'm thinking is that you would want the medicalert info to stand out from whatever play you're doing, right? It needs to be clearly not bondage gear, so that people can tell it contains important information.

Which does not mean it has to be ugly.
24th-Sep-2009 09:05 pm (UTC)
Well, anyone I'm playing with would know about it. I don't play with strangers.
24th-Sep-2009 10:16 pm (UTC)
I'm just sayin'.

*grins* An excellent idea indeed!
