Just a little teaser since you can see me, but not all of me.
This is the first event I ever went to and it was at a public place. The person that took me was a fellow in the Madison community. I had met him online at Fetlife (over four years ago now) and we had messaged, talked on the phone, and went to meet at a public place first. This was over a course of time that I got to know him first before trotting off with him to event. Stranger danger people, come on. The event was called Therapy and it’s a bummer that they lost their space, so it is not active right now. I met quite a few folks from the Madison area that day, and also a couple that was in the Milwaukee area and would help me through being new in the community. I went to a munch in town the next week and met even more people, and I thought that was the greatest thing ever, since I had waited until my early forties to leap publicly into kink. That couple that helped me are still very active in the community and continue to help new people and teach classes that are informative and educational.
My back is super red in the picture since another fellow at Therapy had a horse hair flogger. I didn’t know that I was allergic to it until after. The horse hair creates tiny cuts in your skin, which some people like, and I probably wouldn’t have minded if I didn’t have an allergic reaction to it. Later when I went to shower, those little cuts hurt like hell with soapy water in them. Jolynn did have a horse hair flogger here, but we had to get rid of it, and gave it to a friend who was a happy clam about that.
There are more dungeons to visit along the way, so you better get crawling so you can hit them all.
