If you think kink, or think you might like to, nothing’s better than a weekend of BDSM title workshops, demos and camaraderie. Every August in Atlanta, Southeast Black & Blue Weekend delivers.
Just say “Yes, sir!” to events planned for Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Atlanta Eagle, from the folks who bring you other Atlanta gay kink events like Atlanta Leather Pride and Hotlanta Rubber Weekend.
This year, topics include FirePlay, Male Edging & Milking, BDSM Hypnosis, Predicament Bondage, Balancing Polyamorous Relationships and NeedlePlay. Sound like a lot? It is.
Come down off that kink high during the Saturday barbecue and beer bust, cigar happy hour and annual SEBB Pig Dance. On Sunday, it’s Kink in Recovery, Rubber Play and Scene Flogging before a final demo party on the patio.
The rubber meets the road on Friday night with a Meet & Greet featuring registration, BDSM demos, bookblacking and the Alphabet Soup bar night.
OK then. What else do you need to know?
The BDSM community is far from intimidating – unless you like that sort of thing and ask for it. In general though, it is one of the most welcoming and non-judgmental queer scenes Atlanta. Participants embrace all genders, orientations, races, everything you might bring to the table. Absolutely everybody is welcome.
Ultimately, Southeast Black & Blue is about celebrating who youare here in Atlanta living yourlife. That makes the consensual BDSM fun makes for a great weekend for all walks of life. Find your sexual rebel and march to the beat of your own drummer.
