BoundCon Fetish Convention

Boundcon is an internation convention for bondage and fetish lovers, taking place in Munich, Germany since 2004.

At this 3 day conference you’ll meet exhibitors, artists, and other bondage enthusiasts from all over the world. You can even sign up for bondage workshops. It is described as being a great experience for beginner, intermediate, and advanced bondage practitioners.

Visit BoundCon’s site to learn more and buy tickets. The information there is pretty slim, but they also have a newsletter if you’d like to stay up to date with the latest about this bondage event.

“I traveled all the way to Germany to go to BoundCon one year,” says Jenna, a domme who met her slave on BDSMdate.com. “The event was full of international fetish performers, local kinksters, as well as BDSM players from all over the world! It was an amazing experience. I definitely recommend that kinky people check out BDSM conventions. It’s a place you can feel truly accepted.”

Dom Con

Dom Con takes place in Los Angeles, New Orleans, and has been going on since 2004. There are also events coming up in Australia and Europe as well.

This BDSM convention has lots of demonstrations of top domination techniques, seminars about BDSM, and discussions about current trends. Guests of honor include top dominatrixes from all over the world, fetish models, and photographers. The event is full of lifestyle BDSM practitioners and hobbyists from all over the world. The focus is on Doms, of course, but everyone is welcome.

Their website is ancient and last I checked the menu doesn’t work on mobile, but don’t let that stop you from checking out this domination fest.

Beyond Leather

Beyond Leather is a BDSM event taking place annually in Florida’s West Palm Beach. They offer four days of kink workshops, BDSM education, dungeon play & parties.

This BDSM convention is already in their 14th year, and there is truly something for everyone. Stand-out highlights include lube wrestling, burlesque theatre, 50 kink workshops, a day for littles and pet play, and a power exchange contest. And don’t forget the BDSM parties!

They don’t have much of a site, but they are somewhat active on twitter and we found the Beyond Leather booking information for you.

Florida Power Exchange

This kink convention is a yearly event that takes place over a weekend towards the end of the year. This one seems to cater a little more to the BDSM community in Florida specifically, but anyone is welcome to attend.

Offerings at Florida Power Exchange include kink workshops and social activities, with a focus on community, positive energy and what happens outside the dungeon. That said, there also some exciting BDSM play parties planned for the evenings.

To get a better taste of what goes down at this dom/sub convention, check out their website and peruse photos and schedules from years past.
