The trip start out in Las Vegas for a brand new off-shoot of South by Southwest, SXSW V2V focusing on start-ups and entrepreneurism. I had met the producers (who also organized the Interactive portion of SXSW in Austin in March) who strongly recommended I attend, and I’m glad I did! The classes were really informative and the speakers were inspiring. It was also an opportunity to meet other entrepreneurs and investors who were incredibly encouraging about what I’m doing with Erotication. Held in the Cosmopolitan Hotel, I appreciated the sexy ambiance, including a number of huge high heel sculptures!
Next up was Boston for a weekend stuffed full of classes. Friday night at the Society (in Connecticut) focused on Creative Humiliation, one of my favorite topics . Saturday was the Demo with Benefits, two hours of Dragon-tail demonstrations. On Sunday, I was at MOB talking about Foot Fetish Play in the afternoon and at the NELA Welcome Wagon with Adventures In Kink that evening.
Monday I left bright and early for a couple of days in New York City. I like to take the train when I go from Boston to NYC, it’s quick and I can easily get computer work done AND be able to get up and stretch! The first night had a video shoot with Ducky Doolittle, presenting her “GirlGasm” class which will start to be posted on PassionateU.com soon. The next day had a lengthy shoot with Stefano (he runs a bondage school in Rome) sharing suspension and other rope bondage techniques. Later that night I popped over to TES to present Chastity: Learning to Love The Lock as a last minute addition to my schedule. Wednesday morning, before I headed back to Boston I squeezed in a short shoot with pick-up artist & author Arden Leigh.
Wednesday night I was back in Boston for dinner with a friend, then Thursday on a plane back to Boston! Whew!
