The Canadian Peso

In response to some of the guys that were telling us in Chicago that they were actually finding LOWER rates for our host hotel on Hotels.com than what the hotel was offering us as a group rate, keep in mind the exchange rate between USD and CAD. The rate Hotels.com is offering today is $106USD per night. If you convert to CAD, that is actually $146CAD, almost $30 per night higher than the group base rate of $119. Keep in mind the awesome deal you Americans are getting from our current Canadian peso!

In Memoriam: Stéphane Donaldson

In Memoriam
Stéphane Donaldson
Mr. International Rubber 2009

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we share the passing of MIR2009 Stéphane Donaldson. In addition to being MIR2009, he held the titles of Mr. Rubber Montreal 2008, and Mr. American Rubber 2008.

Stéphane’s career was in the fetish world having worked for many years at Priape in Montreal, and recently having moved to Los Angeles to join the team at Oxballs. During his title year and beyond, Stéphane worked behind the scenes to increase the visibility and acceptance of rubber gear in gay culture, hosting rubber contests and events across Canada as well as using both his personal and professional contacts to encourage studios like Titan to increase the visibility of rubber in adult films.

Stéphane was a private man who kept his professional life in the fetish world separate from aspects of his private life but speaking in general terms, we feel he would want it mentioned that he was an avid horseman and the father of three.

Although his photos and demeanor often appeared serious, once he let his guard down his glowing smile and fun loving personality radiated through everything he did.

As is our tradition, we ask that you raise a glass to celebrate his life, but as he did not care for the taste of alcohol, perhaps you will try one of his favorite drinks, a Cranberry and Coke.

We will be replacing our website for the time being with a memorial page with pictures of Stéphane proudly representing the International Rubber community and being himself.

We extend our condolences to his family and children, his colleagues and friends around the world, his classmates from MIR2009 and to everyone whose life he touched and impacted.

Rest In Peace Brother.
You will be missed, but not forgotten
