I went to Winter Fire the weekend before last for the fourth time. This time, instead of watching and observing I participated in a scene in one of the playspaces set up in one the ballrooms (not one of the orgy rooms). I have done some subtle, discreet public play before but this was the first time actively participating in a corporal scene-stripped down to underwear, blindfolded, and tied to a horse in public. Three different people used a variety of implements and this was the hardest I have played since last spring; and also the first time I had to use a safe word.
I thought I would be very nervous playing like this in a large room with alot of strangers, but once things got underway, and with the blindfold on, I just tuned everything out and got into the scene..
It was a blast. And when I went back to my hotel later on I slept very, very well. Pictures were taken a few days later and to say I got marked up good would be an understatement!
