I've been interested in the art of Shibari for a while now and when I saw that DJ Fet was holding rope lessons at Eroticon 2017, l lept at the opportunity to attend. Like many people, the first time I had been exposed to anything rope related outside the garden shed was when "that book that shalt not be named" came out. A little Googling and I stumbled across the Two Knotty Boys website then on to Midori's. From that moment on, my interest in the artistry of rope was well and truly piqued.
What did I bring away? I knew from the line up of speakers that this year would be very different. Where Eroticon 2017 had a definite creative feel (I never did publish last years post. Maybe I will yet), Eroticon 2018 was, for me at least, more of a business -the nuts and bolts behind writing erotica affair. Much of that was in the choices I'd chosen. Whilst I haven't been writing much in the last twelve months, whether through illness or sheer laziness, I have been thinking more about the logistics behind my writing. This was very much reflected in my choices. Not necessarily through choice, but necessity.
