As a BDSM Sex Educator and Author, I don't just talk about it. I do it! And then I write about it.

KFANYC

March 9th, 2009 · 3 Comments

KinkForAllNYC (KFANYC) was a real success.  Over 100 people showed up for some portion of the day.  It was an “unconference” and that means that those who showed up determined what would happen and made it happen.  The crowd was a mix of familiar faces and lots of people I had never seen before.  A lot of young people.  A lot of tech savvy types.

People brought food to share (I brought 4.5 pounds of grapes).  There was wireless so we could send out info to the people who could not be there.  I took photos and posted them to the group pool.  People wore name tags that were marked with whether they were comfortable with being photographed.  People were live blogging, twittering and taping sessions.

Anybody could take a session slot and teach or lead a discussion.  Each session was 20 minutes.  There were a lot of different topics covered.  Topics pertaining to art, culture, activism, sexuality, gender, BDSM techniques, etc.  There were 45 classes in all.  Many of these classes sparked discussions both in the classes and afterward.  I think it will lead to many more.

I loved it!

    I’m so surprised and impressed that this event allowed photography! I love the new out.

    Now if we can do something about the vast majority (especially het) that will only use “scene names.”

    You take great photographs — as nice as your beadwork!

    your suturing demo was fantastic – I expected it to be much more hardcore (someone made a joke about suturing someone’s mouth shut, !!) but that necklace was so lovely!

    great photos too, btw! thanks for sharing them! if you have others of me (and it is easy) would you mind emailing them to me? will credit you of course.

    Thanks, Thor! Change happens slowly. This event was a start.

    Thanks, Sinclair! I am usually not so hardcore and I love the pretty. I will email you some photos.
