Dear Friends, Lovers, And Admirers Of Ms. Antoinette And Dick Zinkan (A.K.A. Zorro)

For over three decades Antoinette and Dick have given so much to us, and to our BDSM fetish community. Now it's time to let them know that we love and appreciate them. They are going through a serious health crisis and can use some of our legendary community love and support.
Antoinette and Dick have been pioneers of the fetish worlds. Besides being deliciously kinky, they are kind, generous, elegant, creative people with incredible integrity and personal style. They have given us years of pleasure with their magazine Reflections, their hundreds of erotic videos, their spectacular line of fetish clothing, shoes and boots. Dick has taken our favorite photos, documented years of our events, and given us years of free advice as a medical doctor. Antoinette has delighted us with her endless flashy wardrobe, spiritual guidance, humor and charm. They have given many of us paying work we love to do, performance opportunities, and excitement at their Dressed to Thrill Balls, and so much more.

A couple of weeks ago, Dick had very serious open-heart by-pass surgery. He is fighting serious diabetes and other painful ailments. Although his spirits are amazingly high, and he is a trooper, he is extremely physically weak. It's rough. Antoinette, his loyal companion, has been by his side every step of the way. They have been discretely dealing with these health issues for over a year now, all the while running their businesses, lending support to their children and grandchildren, and being good friends.
Dick is now home from intensive care. Antoinette is doing ALL of the care taking herself. Perhaps you would like to send a sexy card, or flowers, best wishes and prayers. They would love your phone calls, e-mails (firstname.lastname@example.org) and visits. Perhaps you want to dress up in your PVC nurse outfit and boots and come take Dick's "temperature".
Antoinette could really use a hand with cooking, shopping and errands, and keeping Dick company. Now is your chance to show you care. (Please don't delay. The sooner the better!)
