This is a question I get frequently. A few days before our bi-monthly parties, Dan, Loki and I get inundated on Recon with messages asking what Dominion is. Hell, we just got an epic shoutout from the NoSafeWord podcast. I've worried that I do a poor job of explaining it in the past, so I figured it was time to sit down and explain, in detail, what Dominion is.
If you're at all remotely geeky, you've seen an episode of Mythbusters. One of my favorite parts about the show is that no matter what the project calls for, they can go into their workshop and whip it up. "Oh, you need a trebuchet? No problem." "Prefab building built to code? On it." Ad infinitum.
Dominion is a Mythbusters Workshop of kink. Thanks to the beautiful 1763 dungeon and the gaggle of experienced players we draw out, we can do almost anything you want at Dominion. Wanna practice your rope suspension? We've got two specially constructed frames for that. In the mood for some flogging? Grab someone who knows what they're doing, pick a cross and play as long as you like. I can't count the number of guys I've seen mummified in plastic wrap and ducttape, or chained to a cross and tortured with a violet wand or electro box. If you find that a little privacy helps you get into the proper headspace, pick any one of the unoccupied side rooms, close the door and go to town. Hell, if all you're in the mood to do is sit back and watch, I, along with most other guys there will be more than happy to drag you around on a leash.
We are also incredibly flexible with just about everything. The dresscode says "naked to formal to fetish wear" and we mean it. I've seen guys spend the entire time bare-ass naked while others have shown up in their work clothes. Personally, I tend to stay mostly clothed, usually in a singlet if not a pair of absurdly short shorts. If someone's unsure what to wear, I usually tell em to find something that gives them a boner and wear that. Just because it's not necessarily someone else's fetish doesn't mean it can't be hot.
I think a lot of guys hear "all-male play party" and jump immediately to picturing it being one giant orgy where subs are up for grabs by whoever wants them. That couldn't be further from reality. Dominion is not a Bound Gods shoot, it's real people doing real play. Everyone's limits are respected, regardless of their experience level. We place a strong emphasis on using safewords (Red and Yellow) as well. Worried about pictures winding up online? Don't sweat it: photography of any sort is strictly forbidden on this flight in the dungeon (except under certain, rare circumstances). Your membership application is strictly confidential and won't be used in any capacity other than to put you on our email reminder list.
We host Dominion on Sunday afternoons in order to maximize the time-accessibility for as many people as possible. The 2-7pm block is, in our experience, dead, so we're don't have to compete with other events. On top of that, ending at 7pm leaves time for socializing afterwards, usually over pizza at a nearby restaurant. The $20 door fee goes towards paying for the 1763 rental and any leftover cash is put towards snacks and water.
It doesn't matter if you're new, experienced, in town for one night only, looking to tie, get tied or just walk around in something you enjoy wearing: Dominion is the best play party in the southeast. Check out the website, fill out an application and RSVP for the next party (on Sept. 22nd). We'd love to have you.
