For those who are new to the conference, and perhaps even new to the scene, first of all:
a very warm welcome!
We try to make the Easter Conference as open and inviting as possible. Whichever passions and desires one brings, chances are high to meet like-minded people.
The most important thing to remember is, we’re all just people. Don’t be afraid. Those of us active in the Lifestyle vary in our level of involvement. For some, BDSM is a fun, sexy thing to do. For others, it is a journey that encompasses their entire lives. Most players are somewhere in between.
Like the rest of the world, most of us are pretty nice most of the time. Sometimes we act rude or angry and get to apologize later, like everybody else. And, as will happen in life, sometimes you meet someone who is just a jerk. Don’t worry about it. Feel free to be yourself and not live up to what you think others expect of you. We’re just people only kinky!
Your first time in the scene
The engine rooms as a first starting point
To provide us all with a good start into the conference, meetings in small groups are scheduled to take place already before the first workshops. These are the Group Meetings. The concept of the group – which in accordance with the 2018 steampunk theme takes place in the engine rooms– has already been tested in previous conferences and proved to be successful.
Small groups are formed by lot. In the small groups, the participants will hear more about the conference and its course of action. The main purpose however is to introduce the participants and meet conversation partners.
Each group has tried and tested machinists. They help to give a first orientation, facilitate the introductions, and guide those a little bit who wish to be pointed in the right direction. The group members remain for the rest of the conference as possible contact persons.
What to expect?
Thanks to Master Grey of Denver who wrote part of this list. We took it and adapted it to our needs. We also added bits from Mrs. Rottenmeiers list: „Wow, is this exciting! Pointers for your first play party“
