Most of the BDSM information presented here has been part of a project which was actually started (believe it or not) in 1974 by Robin Roberts, being taught as a ongoing series of classes. Almost all of the information here has been taught to The BackDrop Club Staff and members. In the mid-70's through the mid-80's he was teaching fifteen to twenty classes per month. (As a side note: Robin has been teaching ProDom classes to over twenty-five people per month for over forty years. This means that well over a thousand men and women have gone through his classes and have become ProDoms.)

In 2018, I lost my www.Backdrop.net website, along with my SM-201 wiki site, two houses and three garages full of stuff, including a 16,000 volume library. I am now (Sep 2019) trying to rebuild it and my life. For the first part of the process, I am rebuilding / importing the wiki to www.SM-201.org from scratch.
Unfortunately, almost all of fifty year of paperwork and legal documents are gone.
If I am violating your intellectual property rights please text, call, email or write me and the offending material will be modified or removed instantly.
Most of the historical information started with the Tony deBlaise Leather Timeline. With Tony deBlaise's death, his Leather Timeline project went dormant. I have been given permission by the Leather Archives to keep this project going, but I would also like to see it expanded to include Het, Bi, Gay, and TV sexuality events.
