Pleasure & Pain: BDSM Lovers Gather for DomConLA

By May 22, 2012

Submissive Gets BeatenFor most of us, pain is just that. Pain.

But to some people, there's a special kind of pleasure in pain -- and they'll test the limits of their own endurance to get there.

And others just like to inflict it on willing partners.

This weekend, the dominant and submissive alike gathered in Los Angeles for DomConLA, and annual gathering of fetishists who trade tips and techniques on things like pony play, penile insertion (yes -- ouch!), whippings, beatings, biting and spoiking.

OK, I made that last one up -- but if you're an S&M lover, feel free to take the word and turn it into something (drop me a line if you do).

Sweet Meatball Tests 'The Gate' DomConLA was started back in 2003 by Mistress Cyan, and from its humble beginnings it has become the largest convention in the country for people who are into BDSM.

That stands for bondage, discipline, dominance, submission, sadism, masochism.

I know, they doubled up on some letters -- I wasn't going to point that out. They all had whips and spiky things.

I have a massive new collection of photos of sexual torture for pleasure and pain as people get beaten, dragged, strung up and poked with metal barbs at DomConLA -- and love every minute of it.

See it all here, in my S&M Heaven: Dominance & Submission at DomCon LA photo collection.
