DomCon - Atlanta and New Orleans - Flash Back Gallery

We take a look back as far as 2009 at DomCon: Atlanta and New Orleans which is produced by Mistress Cyan of Sanctuary Studios LAX. Atlanta/New Orleans was developed not long after the original held at the Hilton LAX in Los Angeles, CA. The New Orleans/Atlanta event draws between 650 and 775 pansexual guests while the main voyage draws over 1,500 to the largest pro domme convention in the world. DomCon features around 50-75 workshops, demos and classes, numerous socials including a Mistresses' High Tea, a Saturday night debaucherous Fetish Ball, a large vendor fair, play parties, and special entertainment. Early registrants, Wednesday through Thursday, get pro dom-oriented events then the mad rush on Fridays and beyond have more general BDSM convention fare added to the vast mix. Both Dom Con: LA in May and Dom Con: New Orleans were virtual events on Zoom with the same large draw the real conventions have enjoyed. This convention has some of the most loyal supporters who would give almost everything to not miss one of the conventions. Scroll down for photos and link.
