The first time we attended a BDSM convention , we had no idea what to expect. Would we fit in? Would we know what to do? What to wear? The short answer is yes! BDSM conventions warmly welcome everyone regardless of age or body type. The cost of travel, conference fee, hotel, and food all add up. You can sometimes knock a few bucks off the total by registering early, as many conventions have early bird registration deals with a lower conference fee.
While overflow hotels are generally very close to host hotels, the real action occurs in the host hotel. We are generally light packers we never check bags when flying , but there are different considerations when packing for a BDSM-themed trip than there are for a regular vacation. Depending on the dress code at your conference, you may not be able to wear fetish clothes everywhere in the hotel, and you might not want to anyway. Most people tend to dress more vanilla for classes and trot out the fetish wear for dungeon time.
You should also plan to bring clothes that will work for a range of temperatures, as hotels can be unevenly heated and cooled not to mention the weather outside. Also make sure you pack whatever gear you want to use in the dungeon, unless you plan to buy all new gear from vendors at the con.
You will almost certainly be required to one or more waivers when you arrive at a BDSM conference and check into the event. Do not ignore the fine print. You might think you know what all the rules are, but they vary from event to event, and they go beyond obvious issues like consent violations.
Typically, there are policies related to dress code, cameras, lost ID badges, and more. This was despite the fact that he was wearing the conference wrist band. When you get the real schedule, take some time to figure out which classes you want to attend, including some back-up options in case your first-choice sessions end up being duds. That said, aim for quality over quantity. Attending back-to-back classes each day of a con can quickly become draining. Be sure to build in breaks, including naps, especially if you plan to stay up late in the dungeon.
Also be prepared to arrive early for classes taught by well-known presenters, such as Princess Kali, Shay and Stefanos, Midori, Orpheus Black, and others, which fill up quickly and often run out of seating. BDSM cons often involve hotel takeovers, which means everyone staying there is affiliated with the con and on the same schedule. This can result in long wait times for elevators at least 10 minutes and crowding akin to subways at rush hour. It may seem tempting to take advantage of the hotel restaurant for all your meals, but trust us, you will get very bored very fast.
Otherwise, venture forth. Winter Fire was in downtown Baltimore this year, so we made a point of identifying a of restaurants we wanted to try in the area. The main dungeon at BDSM cons will be open every night of the con, and some cons have additional daytime dungeon areas. Each BDSM conference has its own dungeon policies. There are often deated areas for things like fire play, medical play, wrestling, and so on.
Unless you plan to avoid the dungeon for the duration of the conference and why would you? But inadvertently stumbling across someone sucking a dick is going to happen. Be prepared to see an abundance of flesh being battered, bruised, and suspended and hear all the noises that accompany such activities. Do whatever works best for you.
Scope out all the available equipment, the location of cleaning supplies, and so on. When you plan your scene, keep in mind that dungeons at conventions get extremely crowded as the night goes on, so if your priority is having your pick of equipment St. If having a lot of onlookers is more important, then wait until the space fills up a bit, but know that you might have to stand around patiently waiting until the equipment you need is available.
Read the labels of your wipes boxes! It takes minutes, not seconds, for human-safe disinfectants to truly clean pathogens from most surfaces. You might think that an entire weekend devoted to BDSM would be one continuous fuckfest, but after full days of classes, food, and events, you might be more depleted than you would imagine.
