DomCon LA 2018

After a near month-long hiatus from My blog… I’ll resume posting by recapping DomCon LA this year.

I left for LA a day early. When I got to My hotel room and opened the suitcase with all My gear in it, I was greeted with this:

TSAwashere

I honestly am surprised if I don’t see one of these when I travel. Wouldn’t you inspect any luggage that passed through the xray in which inside appeared a big cock? Of course you would.

Unfortunately, I was feeling pretty heavily introverted that week (in part due to some bad news about a family member), so I skipped nearly all of the social functions (only briefly attending the Fetish Ball on Saturday evening for some play) and focused most of My attention on classes.

There were a lot of great offerings this year. I especially enjoyed the legal courses and the demos that Mistress Simone Justice did in Her Verbal Skills class. Some very moving interactions. A couple gave Me chills! Also, My focus on the classes meant I missed the Mistress photo. Oh, well. Education over vanity, I guess!

I taught two classes this year: Security Considerations and So You Want To See a Dominatrix? A received a lot of great feedback about both. (I will probably be teaching the latter again here in the Philadelphia.)

I also meet several lovely people: Madame Rose (, Mistress Eva (), Goddess Anat , Miss Foxx (), Goddess Cleo , Max Candy (, Annie, and Ivy.

I had a really fantastic conversation with Madame Margherite and Annie. The kind of deep and meaningful exchange that can energize Me for days. We talked about adult work, society, emotional and mutual support, metaphysics, and a lot of things I can’t remember because I had a nice wine buzz going on (thanks to the Whiplr lounge). I also had great talks with Mistress Katerina (@ServeKatarina) and Ivy.

I picked up some things from the vendors (top to bottom):a steel slapper, a faux, horsehair flogger, and a polycarbonate cane. I also bought a rubber quirt but I accidentally left it at the Saturday-night play party at Sanctuary and it appears someone stole it. So, thank you to whoever decided to pocket instead of turning it in to the lost and found.

I also acquired a really cool sensory implement for the head from the Whiplr lounge:

Thank you, DomCon! See you next year!

Booking a scene with Me while I’m attending DomCon

You may have noticed that I don’t travel a lot. Or if I do it’s more of the “leisure” variety. So, if you reside in the Los Angeles area and don’t come My way often (if at all), or you will be attending DomCon, and would like to have an experience with Me while I’m there between May 8th and 13th, here are some things to think about:MistressTissa_Sultry_crop

  1. Consider your scene. What you want to do might work better on different days or at different times. Note: I will not be taking any scenes over 4 hours.
    • May 8: Good for private dungeon scenes or a hotel scene. I am coming in a day early to offer scenes without the distraction of the convention. I’m willing to session from multiple dungeons in LA.
    • May 9 – 13 evenings: Good for hotel room scenes. Hotel rooms can be versatile but are especially good environments for roleplays that might feel better outside of some dungeon settings, such as domestic, bedroom, office, kidnap, interrogation. I will be attending the events during the morning and afternoon on these days, so My time will be limited to 8pm – midnight.
    • May 11 and 12 evenings: These are the nights of Sanctuary’s two play parties. These are busy events with people playing everywhere. These are best for people who want public scenes, such as exhibitionists and those looking for scenes involving humiliation and/or service.
  2. Consider My specialties. I’m a Domme who naturally has a wide variety of interests and skills, including a strong aptitude for understanding psychology. Some of My scene specialties are authentic Domination/power exchange (as opposed to service topping), emotional intensity, humiliation and degradation (from playful to ruthless), rough body play, “beatdowns”, impact, and psychodramas (My approach is realism over fetishism). I also offer unique takes through My practices of Foot Domination (as opposed to “Foot Worship”) and Sensual Sadism (what others may call “Tease and Denial”).MistressTissa_NippleBitch_c
  3. I’m open to scenes involving two or more Dommes. There will be a quite a lot of Dommes from all over the world attending the conference. This is one of those rare opportunities to scene with more than one Domme that might rarely — if ever — come in contact with one another. So, take advantage of what might be a one-time opportunity. If you have an idea of what Domme(s) you’d like Me co-conspiring with, let Me know and I’ll inquire if They’re available and interested in your scene.
  4. Book in advance. If you plan ahead a bit, you’re more likely to get the time you want and I can make sure I bring specific things to craft your scene. Also, I prefer it because I don’t like rushing. Art should not be rushed, dahling! 😉
  5. Be aware of deadlines. The latest I will be able to accept an application before I leave Philadelphia is May 5th. This allows one day to speak with you and pack what I need for our scene before I leave for Los Angeles. The 7th will be too late. Once I’ve left Philadelphia, you are welcome to inquire, but you will have to be content with whatever clothes, shoes, and gear I’ve decided to bring.

 

Feeling hesitant because you don’t feel like you know enough about Me? Take a look at My website.

Concerned that I may not be a good Domme? Take a look at My testimonials.

Ready to request a scene? Inquire here.

I look forward to hearing from you!

DomCon LA 2017

DomCon was great. Got to Los Angeles on Tuesday evening, picked up a car, and stopped to get some groceries before checking into the hotel.

The next morning, headed to the registration desk, checked in, and got My badge.

MistressTissa_DomCon2017

Went to the industry-only classes on Wednesday and Thursday, which were all terrific.

Thursday was the opening ceremonies and first play party.

While I was sitting and enjoying a drink, I was approached by a guy wearing a gold lamé jacket. He told Me he was a slave. I asked him to clarify, since many people who think they’re a slave aren’t actually one at all. His answer didn’t fully satisfy Me, and during the course of My explanation as to what slavery is, or more broadly power exchange, our conversation moved to what it means to be a professional Dominant. He essentially insisted We’re all service tops. Not too soon after I began correcting him, Mistress Eva Cruz comes through the door, glaring at this gold-jacketed “slave” and exclaims, “Where have you been?!?” Apparently, he was supposed to get Her a drink. Instead, he stopped and struck up a conversation with Me. Well, it wasn’t long before he was on his knees, being choked by his own tie. Mistress Liz came along to join in the fun.

After some corrective measures, We needed a break and made him our footstool.

After a bit, Mistress Liz continued on with Her fun while Mistress Eva Cruz and I brought this “slave” to one of the rooms at Sanctuary to figure out how much of a slave he really was.

Let Me just say: not a lot of mercy was involved.

After two hours, We left him pretty beat up. And, hopefully, a little wiser.

The next few days were a flurry of events: classes for all convention attendees (some of which I went to and enjoyed), the Mistresses Dinner, the Mistresses photo, the Mistresses Tea (which I completely spaced until it was almost over), more play parties, lots of terrific vendors, and, of course, meeting a shitload of amazing Women (and few decent men).

Here are some of the toys I bought and tested out…

(Minus the harness and cocks)

By Sunday evening, I was exhausted. Still, I stopped into the after party, had some wine, and watched some people getting all sorts of treatment.

On Monday morning I headed back to Philly. Happy to be back!

Thank you, DomCon! See you next year!

(I’m not one to take selfies with people or I would have several I could have added to this post.)
