I got back from DomCon LA a few days ago and wanted to to set down some thoughts... 

This was the 10 year anniversary of DomCon LA and it was a really huge event - perhaps 500 people or more. But it was the first time that I'd been, and actually the first time I'd heard of it. Which makes one wonder how a huge BDSM / kink event in LA can make it to 10 years, but people in the Bay Area haven't heard of it? O well... 

Overall, it was a very positive and interesting event for me... But there were also highs and lows...

Among the highs were meeting some rather lovely people at the meet'n'greets and events - including Diana Dee, Lady Kimberr, Crystal, and Goddess Fae. Running into these gorgeous and lovely women at various events over the weekend was a treat.

I also played hooky from class at various points over the weekend to hang out with friends in LA - going to Venice Beach with Paula, Mexican food and the Fetish Ball (see below) with Pale Goddess, and Mother's Day brunch in WeHo with Louisita. I love those guys!

I did actually go to class at various points, and really enjoyed the sessions on knife play (not at all what I had presumed) and creative scening (25 kewl things to do with duct tape and candy!). But some of the classes suffered from presenters who really knew everything about their topic, but were not actually very good presenters. And some were just at the wrong level for me - who knew that I was such a financial / business smartie?!

I really enjoyed the big set piece events like the Friday night Play Party - where I really enjoyed playing with a kewt little boy called Jimmy. And then the after party was rather lovely, meeting Alice and her sissy Bobbie.

And also I managed to go round the Vendor Fair several times without spending anything on kewt floggers etc. Phew!

So will I go again? Well... It's not an absolute certainty, as the whole weekend, with flights and hotels etc., cost rather a lot. So it rather depends on how business is next year. But if business allows, then I would like to go again...
