Lolita Wolf

Lolita-WolfWhen thinking of needles, most people remember of going to the doctor and getting shots. Ick! The last thing that they want to do is play with needles. But once one gets over that fear, playing with needles can be a lot of fun. Play piercing can give you a big endorphin rush. Endorphins are those sensations that your body makes to give you a natural high. Long distance runners experience a runner’s high that is very similar. Needles can leave you a different sort of breathless.

She is the founding member of both a Riot Grrl band (The Southern Helles) and an outreach program for the homeless in Columbus, GA.

Sara holds a BA in English and Art from Columbia University, and a Masters of Creative Writing from the University of Sydney.

Laura Antoniou is the author of the best selling Marketplace series of BDSM novels, about a realistic, modern day slave training world. In addition to writing a ton of other erotic material, she has edited over a dozen anthologies and is collecting stories for even more right now. For over twenty years she’s been teaching and ranting at the kinky and alt-sex communities, and her contribution to Tristan Taormino’s The Ultimate Guide to Kink: BDSM, Role Play and the Erotic Edge is a rare example of her non-fiction work. Naturally, it’s all about how to train a slave. She can be found at lantoniou.com and on Fetlife and Facebook.

Elizabeth Thorne began writing erotic stories when she started working in a place known as The Sex Lab. It was an act of desperation since, ironically enough, studying sex kept her too busy to meet anyone larger than a mouse… and unlike Cinderella she doesn’t actually swing that way. These days, Elizabeth spends her time sitting around in her PJs writing popular science during the day and erotic romance at night. You can sometimes find her haunting NY delis at 2 a.m., looking for chocolate chip cookies and wondering why people are staring at her fuzzy pants. She has contributed to more than ten anthologies of erotica and erotic romance and is proud to be the author of “The Gingerbread Dungeon,” a collection of BDSM fairy tales. You can find her online at withbatedbeth.com.

THE PLAYSPACES

We have 100,000 square feet dedicated to play alone – one of the biggest playspaces in the world. You’ll find almost a hundred pieces of gear, 28’ ceilings for our multiple suspension frames, 10,000 square feet dedicated just to pony play, plenty of space to swing an 8’ whip…space for the biggest of your heart’s desires. Yes: there is space to wrestle, special space for fire and wax play, to roll around in a puppy cage, get out your coloring books, or stage a gang bang…the list goes on and on.

THE MARKETPLACE

An event of this kind needs an exceptional vending area, a place where you can explore, try out or try on toys, clothing and fetish items from all over the world. Online is fine – but there’s nothing like holding a first class flogger and meeting the person who made it, or getting your leatherware custom fit by one of the country’s leading experts.
