Dave Rhodes' Christmas, Solstice, New Year, Holidays and Hanukkah List

After a year hiatus, here is Dave Rhodes' Christmas, Solstice, New Year, Holidays and Hanukkah List.

DomCon LA Virtual coming in August

By Mistress Cyan

DomCon LA Virtual will happen over the weekend of August 28-30. While it will be scaled down from the five days to three days, we're still going to be able to enjoy each other's company and have the DomCon experience even if we do it online. We will come together virtually for all the things we love about DomCon: the Red Carpet Festivities and Opening Ceremonies, industry and lifestyle classes/workshops, vendor rooms, Animal Play Awards, The Gender Bender Pageant, Ladies’ Tea, the group photoshoot, and a variety of socials. We will also have kink performances and our signature Saturday night Fetish Ball with performances from Sanctuary LAX. We will also bring together scenes broadcasted from our playrooms, and from private spaces of those who wish to broadcast their play from around the country. DomCon LA Virtual will be hosting this virtual gathering through the DomCon website that has virtual chatrooms. We require a membership which then enables us to have an uncensored event.
