Hmmm...the strangest? Well that's not gonna be an easy one at all since I don't consider anything I do for research as strange. Now the family on the other hand might beg to differ. I remember getting some really strange looks from them when the book I ordered from Amazon about Shibari Bondage showed up. And I was subjected to even more strange looks as I attempted to try some of the techniques on my leg. My son called me a freak. Evidently, they think wrapping a rope around my leg means I've got a screw loose...LOL.
