Dark Odyssey Surrender

25: Whips, canes and latex at Dark Odyssey Kink conference

Play

Zemis Mistress of whipsJon and Sind are back from "Dark Odyssey:  Surrender", a 3 day event in San Francisco with training, demos and play-parties with the who's-who of kink. They visited classes on "fisting", "scene negotiation", "rough sex" and "erotic publishing", which are just a small part of what was available.

After Mistress SinD gets her first take of receiving a whipping, we interview "Zemis", master (and instructor) of the single-tail whips and various other sorts of mindfucks. We discuss mediation by whipping, perverted clowns and sonic booms.

We talk latex with Penny from Lust Designs: how she designs the outfits (from mermaids to bowling shirts), how to pick them, how to lube up and get into them.

Every good kinkster needs a kilt (or a couple), so we hang out with PD Kilts and try out their warez, so we learn about the different styles and weights of kilts.

The kinkshop brings their own arsenal of toys, from "fluffy" to "mean and nasty", including our first-ever floggers.
And if you are looking for some classy rope for your bondage scenes, do look at the colorful options of "Rainbow rope".
KJ Canes schools us on canes, their usage and the different styles you can get: from light-up canes to canes with your favorite football team or cartoon character.  These are not your old school teachers canes; they are made from various high-tech materials like carbon fiber, fiber glass, aluminum, stainless steal depending on your need.
Mistress SinD has a blast testing out the new Violet wand accessories from Big Head Studios. The custom electrodes they create range from "festive" to "impressive" to "darn that left a mark!". We discuss the various unique types of electrodes, the history of the violet wand, and the fun of zapping people in the balls.

Podcast recommendation: Los Swingers, a podcast in Spanish and English about a  couple's adventures in the swinging lifestyle.  They also do great jello shots. Update 2015: Sadly, the podcast no longer exists.

Also: During playtime, we tied up Miss Penzer on a barrel and took turns smacking her.   She liked it.
