Some sad news has come our way and I thought it was best to share it, a lot of people here know, or have heard of, Hans Meijer / Powerotics.

Hans Meijer ( has passed away on 3 February 2009

Hans has had a liver disease for a number of years and as I understand it (the family has other things to worry about) his liver stopped working about two weeks ago, with a lethal result. I’ll post more information as I get it.

In the communities that I move Hans has always been a person of controversy. As a result a lot of people had an opinion about him. This opinion was either black or white and never in-between. But the fact remains that Hans had a great deal of knowledge about BDSM and related topics that is now gone forever.

Hans, may you rest in peace.

Hans Meijer,
16 April 1952 – 3 February 2009,
56 years old
