Kink.com kicks open the doors to the Armory this Thursday, September 18, for BondCon, a weekend long celebration and studio open house. Scheduled in tandem with the legendary Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco, BondCon will feature an array of workshops, tours of the Armory, parties, awards and the chance to join a Kink.com shoot as an extra.
“We wanted to open up the Armory to the public in a way that we’ve never really done before, at least not on this scale,” said Kink.com’s Peter Acworth. “We wanted to create an environment that would be welcoming both to the curious and experienced lifestylers. Folsom Street Fair and Leather Week are our high holidays, so we pulled out all the stops and are inviting every one in.”
At the center of BondCon are over two dozen kinky workshops, open to all levels of experience. The innovative Kink workshop curriculum, which has been featured in publications including Salon, Huffington Post and Drudge Report, ranges from beginner classes (“Spanking 101,” “Threesome Tips”) to lectures (“Coming Out Kinky” and “How to Become A Professional Dominant”) and expert level bondage instructionals.
The Armory itself will be open for near constant tours over the weekend, allowing the public in to go behind the scenes on the over fifty studios sets where Kink films, as well as learn about the historic Armory building itself. For this week only, the special BondCon tours will include demo and information stations staffed by Extreme Restraints, Boss Bondage, Stockroom, Orchid and Serpent Stores.
The events also include a Bondage Awards dinner on Friday night, and a massive BondCon Ball on Saturday night. While the former is limited to award-winners, the BondCon Ball is open to the public, and fetish wear is highly encouraged.
Those not quite ready to join a massive BondCon party in Kink’s infamous dungeon are invited to check out Fete de Kink, a dance party for Bondage Beginners, on Thursday night at Club Harlot, or to visit the massive Kink booth at Folsom Street Fair.
