The Quiet End of Kinkfest

The reason  for leaving Shibaricon was to get back in time to get ready for the Fetish Ball. Honestly, the Fetish Ball was fun, but I was so tired I barely recall it. We went back to Shibaricon the next day and I had an awesome self-bondage class with DoNotGoGently. Her attention to detail and her willingness to discuss personal safety made the class worthwhile. She also taught a couple of quick ties that I didn’t know, and clarified some basics that I should  have known. This has all made me realize that I need to teach some basics to help further get my head around it, but I truly valued her patient practice.

The second class with Lochai, was no less amazing than the first. The only regret I have is not being able to volunteer fast enough to have him put rope on me, but considering how overwhelmed I was by his sheer presence, I’m not sure my panties would have survived it. 

Aside from that, I also managed to run into some Shmeng people and took in the decorative rope bondage class being led by the rope master who does amazing rope costumes. This was a great workshop, but I didn’t have a partner, and got paired by my Shmeng friends with a cute little rope top who wanted to practice tying. 

Since she was a bit more experienced, I ended up becoming the bondage bunny for her and she had me tied up in a decorative chest harness with some really lovely green hemp rope. One thing I learned from this is, although I am not allergic to hemp, the dust that comes off of it does play holy hell with allergies, and I will have to keep that in mind if I rope bottom for anyone in the future. Nylon rope or well-kept hemp, only, I think. The other thing I learned is that I much prefer to doing the tying, although now I know exactly what a confining chest harness feels like.

There was some more shopping, and much chatting before we eventually headed back home after Shibaricon, which, all in all, was a wonderful time. And, being Sunday night, after three days of kink, I was completely worn out. A few messages later, I was in the car with the Boy and we were on our way home, where I unwound myself, relaxed, and enjoyed a night in my own bed with nothing left but rope-bound memories and a huge desire to do it again next year.
