"Every night, heart in hands.
Every day, lost again.
Eyes closed, a life ahead,
Free falling, fighting bad.
A promise in your eyes.
Home. A life that starts.
All the way to your arms,
Rough road, aching hearts.
Tears, questions, fears,
Fairytales and dreams.
I’d do it all again, it seems."

An actual dirty little secret?

I have two special little talents. I have a particular tendency to attract unconventional characters to my side and in little more than minutes I am able to make anybody tell me their deep darkest sexual secrets. It's not something I try to do. I just listen. And don’t judge.
That is probably why, out of nowhere and in the middle of a bunch of other choices, I ended up talking for an hour and a half with… a fetish photographer.
Yes, a fetish photographer… Who told me all about his social life, his sex life and his… professional life.
I didn't try to find him. I didn’t know who he was. And he wasn’t there to publicize. I didn’t ask that much, but I believe his most repeated words were “I can’t believe I’m telling this to a total stranger”. But he did.
He told me how Portuguese women are the worst dressed in bed right after the German; how his relationship was an open one; how swing clubs are now devitalized by voyeurs; how Lady Gaga democratized soft fetish parties in night clubs; how he uses “Hurricane”, by 30 Seconds To Mars, to explain some "concepts" to his models; how pet-play photos are big in Japan; how the most immoral photograph he ever took was published in Bizarre Magazine and how he is now in a deep vocational crisis because he doesn’t know if he wants to continue doing this kind of work or follow his other passion… politics!!!
I must say I had fun with that conversation. 
I wonder if he'll keep his promise... ;)
