With that erotic writing conference not long in the horizon in March, we are getting prepared, tickets, hotel, train all sorted. This will be the first time we meet any people in real life in the community, that excites and worries me. It is the only event we have planned for this year so far. That in mind, we plan to make the most of it and have heard how nice everyone is. Judging by those I have met online I have no doubt that isn’t true.
In order to make this trip possible we require family to look after our children for a couple of days. They’re bound to ask questions, and although it isn’t a kink event they may have raised eyebrows if we told them it was an erotic writing conference. I asked a friend about this and turns out he’s a seasoned liar, giving me tips on how to get around this issue.
So we’re going to London to go shopping on Saturday and seeing a show Sunday *wink*. Just need to look up a show, know where and when it’s on then read a synopsis and some reviews.
It feels like we’re teenagers again, sneaking out to a party. Surely as adults we don’t need to be doing this?
Alibi sorted, we can now focus on which talks we want to see. There’s so much that we want to see and won’t be able to see it all. Gem has shown uncomfortable excitement at the branding. I’m not sure at the moment, even if there is something that interests me about seeing a PS branded on her.
I’m looking forward to seeing any kind of demo, or even seeing other people’s dynamics. There is always a voice in the back of my head going “what if you’re doing it wrong?” I know ultimately we’re both consenting adults so I shouldn’t be concerned about how we do what we do, that’s just how I am.
This is also a great chance to dress in a way we choose. I don’t really get much opportunity to look nice and not having to worrying about the children means we can relax about it. Gem has wanted to wear her underbust corset out for a while and I’m sure she has other plans in mind. Not forgetting some outfits for photos.
One thing that she will be wearing is a chain, attached to me. We’ve been to London once before as a couple and gem confessed she was uncomfortable (the tube station nearly had her in tears). She didn’t like how busy and chaotic it can feel. I jokenly said I could hold her by a leash to settle her nerves. Turns out it was a good idea, but I don’t think that’s the direction we want to go being outside with our dynamic, too many looks. Instead she will have a cuff around her wrist and I will hold her via some fingerloops I have made. We then hold hands and it’s almost undetectable.
‘Almost’ being an important word in that sentence.
Whatever happens I’m sure it will be an adventure we’ll both enjoy, no matter how scary it seems. Only 2 more months to go.
