Los Angeles Fetish Scene

> Bailey > The Los Angeles Fetish Scene

This is a listing of the greater Los Angeles BDSM/Fetish clubs, events, and other kinky resources that I am aware of.

As with any other web page listing such things information on this page can, and very often does, become out of date before I am aware of it. Also it happens that from time to time a regularly scheduled event is closed on one or more of its usual dates, or held on a day other than its usual one. Independent verification is recommended before attending.

To request additions, corrections, or updates: Webmaster@HiddenCastle.com. Please include in any request the web site or web page URL of the event where up to date information is available and independent verification can be done. Also needed are any memberships that are required to attend and the age restrictions. I cannot list an event without these.

A listing of major many day events that attract throughout the USA and worldwide is on the National Fetish Scene page (inside USA) and the International Fetish Scene page (outside USA).

If you are new to the BDSM community there is a terminology used on this web page you may be unfamiliar with. These are defined on the BDSM Terminology Page.

A BDSM Club's dungeon party are typically private to the membership, but in all other respects they are public events within the membership. It will happen, and is normally expected to happen, that your play will be watched by others. These parties are not a place for those who are uncomfortable with being watched while at play.

Please visit the Bailey for other information resources at the Hidden Castle.

Night Clubs

These are fetish themed events at disco nightclubs where SM play is staged and play by public for both Tops and bottoms is welcomed as well. Because these are public events no nudity is allowed at any them. The rules on the amount of required coverage varies. If in doubt you should ask the nightclub's promoters. Generally the rules are about the same as on the beach. Some clubs are worse than others in regards to sound levels. It is generally wise to have both earplugs and nutrients as counter measures against damage to hearing due to sound levels when attending them.

Thefts of equipment at these events happen often. Night Clubs are attended by all kinds of people, not just people active in the kink community who are generally far more trustworthy. Anything not kept on your person or closely watched over is at risk and is best kept out of sight in luggage or locked up.

Because these are nightclubs it is inevitable there will be bottoms that have had a few alcoholic drinks before play. I have come across bottoms about to have their first BDSM experience not want to play until they have had a drink or two. Recommendations on my part to have them afterwards  never were accepted by them. I have yet to see this as a problem for Tops because the vast majority of the Tops that go to these clubs to play are very experienced and know better. Alcohol and BDSM play do not mix. The bottoming experience is about feeling and enjoying sensations the Top provides. This is lessened when a bottom is numbed to it by alcohol. There is also a safety issue because it is important for a bottom to know what is being received. If a bottom appears to be under the influence by personality, wobbly walking, or breath smell, it is best to tell them to try it some other evening.

Some of these nightclubs have webpages where free or discount passes are available. These are easily printed without the rest of the webpage they are in by right clicking the image that is the pass and selecting the "Print Image" item in the pop up menu. If you are not using the MS Internet Explorer there may be a "View Image" menu item. In this case select it and the image will appear alone in a new browser window where it can be printed.

Slave Auctions

A slave auction is an event where the right to dominate and play with a bottom, for the period of time offered by the bottom, is sold to the highest bidder. Typically this is the duration of the dungeon party where the auction is held, and it may be shorter than this but it is never longer. The domination and play remains confined to the premises of the dungeon where the auction is held. Although these are always called "Slave Auctions" it frequently happens that Tops get on the auction block as well and it is the bottoms that do the bidding. It can happen that a person who is generally always a Dominant will switch to being a bottom for the event. It is always an auction rule that any limits a bottom has as to what is done at play are respected and these are usually given before the auction. In addition to the slave's limits, the rules of the venue where it is held will also have limits to keep the event within the law, for safety, and other reasons.

The currency used to bid with varies. Very often these are fund raisers for charities.

Slave auctions are a great way to "break the ice" and initiate play among people at a party. It makes it apparent who the available submissives are, and who wants to play with them. It sometimes happens a purchase starts a long term relationship. Of course there is always risk to the moral of the individual on the auction block if there are no bids. Most who go on the block are sold. But no bids do happen so the individual on the block must be prepared with a "thick skin." On the other hand, it can be an ego boost to watch from the auction block many competing bidders bidding up to a high price.

Mistress Cyan's Slave Auctions
Held a week or two before Thanksgiving and again a few weeks before Christmas in early December at Sanctuary LAX in Lennox (near the Los Angeles Airport). Others may be held at other times in the year as announced. At the one before Thanksgiving the currency is a voucher the value of which is determined by food donated to charity. At the one before Christmas it is toys donated to charity. These exchanges for vouchers are done at the event just before the auction. The donations can also be made in advance by delivering to the auction dungeon. You must keep an inventory of what was delivered in advance to get credit for it at the auction. When Mistress Cyan makes the deliveries to the charitable organizations she lets them know it came from the fetish community.
The value of the voucher is determined by how much has been spent on toys or food. It is best to bring the receipt for what you have spent. Vouchers can also be gotten in exchange for cash or payment by credit card at the auction, before or after a winning bid.
In the year 2009, there was also a slave auction on April 18. Everyone attending chose an envelope. Each envelope contained a voucher for "auction money" to purchase a slave for the evening of play. Those who wanted to acquire additional "auction money" were be able to do so at a rate of 10 auction dollars for every real dollar). Whether this will be a yearly event in April is unknown by me at this time.
The slave auctions are announced at her Yahoo Group and the Sanctuary LAX Website's Events Page.
The Thanksgiving Auction is has been better attended than Christmas one.

There is a live band and later a DJ at the outdoor dance floor at the Harbor Reef Restaurant. Be sure to get your passport on arrival or the children might put you in the Hoosegow.

There are two restaurants in Two Harbors. There is the "Snack Bar" open most of the day. This is a cafeteria that also grills items to order. The other is the "Harbor Reef Restaurant." This is fine dining and opens in the late afternoon. The Harbor Reef Restaurant books up quickly for Buccaneer's Day. It is best to reserve by phone two days in advance of your arrival. If you have not phoned in advance, reservations can also be done in the Snack Bar before the Harbor Reef Restaurant opens and should be done there as soon as you arrive.

The campsites and the one hotel at Two Harbors book up one year prior to this event. Booking is best done on the day of the event for the next year in person at the Two Harbors office. My experience has been that the Monday after the event is already too late. For those who have arrived without reservations sometimes there are cancellations or no shows for the campsites. Otherwise there is overflow camping in Buffalo Park. This is a playground behind the Harbor Reef Restaurant.

The demand for overflow camping in Buffalo Park for this event has increased dramatically in the past several years. In 2007 there were just three tents there. In 2009 there were about 200. It has become like a tent city, and unfortunately, with this growth has come big city crime. The Two Harbors management was expecting this and beefed up the presence of the Sheriff's Department and police. In spite of this there were thefts of camping equipment, especially sleeping bags. Luggage left in or outside tents was riffled through and items such as cameras stolen. In the case of the sleeping bags the thief was caught when the victims recognized their gear when tents were being taken down Sunday morning. At about 3 AM there was a disturbance caused by people at a tent that caused the sheriff to send them home at that hour of the night via the sheriff's boat.

To attend this event there is a need for luggage locks on all luggage and zippers on tent doors. Without these it is certainty thieves will get into both.

Normally it is possible to rent tents and sleeping bags from the Two Harbors Rangers. In 2009 there was a decision by Two Harbors management not to rent anything on Buccaneer's Day. It is now necessary to bring your own camping gear to this event.

It used to be that Buccaneer's Day was mostly attended by well mannered and wealthy yachtsmen. This has changed. In 2009 a waitress was mugged for her tips by four women in gothic attire while she was on her way home after the bar closed at 1:30 AM. They were arrested. Sunday afternoon a woman went berserk in the bar and threw her food all over the place. She was kicked out. After that she and another woman assaulted a women who was asleep in the grass while waiting for her ferry. She was straight punched to the face. This was a random act, the assailants did not know their victim. The two assailants were quickly pulled away by a group of onlookers. The assailants were banned from the ferry and required to wait for the sheriffs to arrive who were elsewhere on the island at the time.

Most of Catalina Island is privately owned by the Santa Catalina Island Conservancy. They maintain a blacklist of people who have been trouble makers. Anyone on this blacklist is banned from the island and cannot buy a ferry ticket in their name. There are many who were added to this list on Buccaneer's Day in 2009.

Since 2009 seurity at this this event has been beefed up. The Los Angeles County Sherrif's presence has been increased. Access to camping areas is controlled, it is necessary to have a wrist band to get into them.

Held once yearly in mid to late October in a resort in Palm Springs. An entire resort is taken over for this weekend event.

The Sampler offers each participant two one hour private one on one workshops in the presenters room in the resort. If you bring your own submissive the two of you are entitled to a total of four. The emphasis here is in learning by doing so it is best to bring a submissive to the workshop. If you do not own your own a volunteer male submissive is usually available (female volunteers will not be likely.) In addition to these one on one workshops there are group workshops as well.

The Sampler is also a dungeon party on the common grounds of the resort that starts in the early morning and lasts until the late evening. Dungeon furniture is set up on the common grounds of the resort. When not used in workshops they are available to the Sampler attendees.

Usually every room in the resort is assigned to a presenter and the attendees stay in hotels nearby. In some years there are rooms for attendees at the resort where it is held as well.
