There are a number of things about a Formal BDSM event that gives it a different tone.

  • One of those is simply dress. You don’t need to wear full leather, but this is a great chance to put away the blue jeans and wear slacks or a nice dress. Formal does not mean a tuxedo…but you’ll feel out of place in cut off shorts.
  • Another item is simply how we address each other. Although no one is required to use titles, it is encouraged. And if you don’t know, just ask “How would you like to be addressed?” Some of us put a lot of energy and time into learning to be a good Sir or skillful Lady or honored slave. Respect those that request them.
  • If you are unsure of a protocol, no issue at all, just ask. No one will care or judge you for not knowing a protocol and we all have our own.
  • And if you are still unsure, just be gracious. Don’t just hug someone’s slave, but instead ask first. Don’t pick up someone hat and try it on, instead simply say “Sharp hat, may I look at it more closely?”.

Remember – this is our first Formal BDSM Event in Columbus like this, so relax, we are all on the same trip; so lets enjoying the journey.
