Will i Ever Attend An Exciting Fetish Event Again?

So, i am slowly but surely re-entering the arena of Sadomasochism, once again. The fulfillment seems like it's never there. Life happens so it takes you to different places at different times, but, i still seek to be taken levels i haven't been to in years. It's now a matter of who, when and how at this point of time. Sadly, the NYC Fetish events haven't been as exciting as it had been in previous years and when i say previous years, i'm speaking of more than 10 years ago. You would figure since it's New York City, it would be lively. Don't get me wrong, different people see different things and i can only go my my own experiences. i am SURE a lot of people attending today's fetish events are having the time of their lives, i just so happen to NOT be one of them presently.

There was a time where play WAS the reason people attended these fetish events, but it seems to be more of a fashion show these days (Nothing wrong with that, i DO enjoy seeing women dressed or undressed in the name of fetishism) and/or a gathering of people within the scene (Again, nothing wrong with that, i enjoy seeing my scene friends ALL the time when i am out and about) but there was a time where a voyeur of the fetish arts would go home happy because of the exciting scenes going on around the venue (Notice, i said scenes, as i only see a scene or 2 when going to certain fetish events).

my intent when writing this wasn't to sound bitter because of my recollection of the earlier BDSM scene, i guess i am just reminiscing about a time when i KNEW it would be an exciting night while out at a BDSM or BDSM-themed event. Nowadays, it's a crap shoot, i'll go to a party anticipating a great time and leave disappointed...  That was very rare many years ago and i DO know that times change, but, creativity seems to lack now. Is it hard promoting and producing fetish events? Yes, i do know this, i have wanted to throw my hat into the arena many times, but, the nitpicking and backstabbing that occurs often is discouraging at the least. i have read advertisements and promotions stating that if you are new to this scene, you will be welcomed with open arms and i hate to say this, i haven't witnessed it first hand and even i, who has been in this scene for 17 years, am treated like an outsider at times....  Sad....

Oh well, i will go to events, in hopes that the excitement that i used to experience will, at the very least, occur from time to time.....  Until then, i have memories of what used to be......
