I've been in and out of town quite a bit over the past month, but one of my favorite trips was just barely out of the city, to Kinky Kollege Homecoming ’14. If you’re unfamiliar, KK is a BDSM education convention sponsored by the Chicago SINS Center. Lady Sophia had invited me over the years, and I am so glad I finally made it out this time. Many of the classes at KK are on the more introductory end of the spectrum, but there’s always new information and perspectives to glean even from those.
Some of my favorite classes were taught by Leather icon, Peter Fiske. Peter has a collection of over 1,000 whips and canes from all over the world and dating back as far as the mid 19th century. Being the pervy nerd that I am, I couldn’t get enough of the history behind them all! The obvious joy he takes in sharing his extensive knowledge and the love and care he shares with his play partners through his implements is just marvelous. He’s inspired me to become serious about becoming proficient with a single tail. If you want to support my learning, please contact me about gifting me a whip!
I also picked up new ideas for cock and ball bondage, predicament bondage, and rough body play (especially punching). If you’re interested in any of those activities, I’d love to play with you! And if you enjoy pokey/piercey sensations, I learned an entirely new technique: quilling. This would be great for someone who is curious, but not quite ready to try needles. I would love to make some beautiful and prickly designs on flesh with this natural material!
Since returning home, my sessions have felt reinvigorated. I’ve got a few new tricks up my sleeve, and most importantly, I have reconnected with the energetic and connective basis of my BDSM practice. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to book a session with me, this is it!
