Again sponsored by AmazingO.co.uk Smut Manchester moved venue this year to a BDSM dungeon. You know, like you do. Miss T’s in Stockport has become something of a second home for the Blisses in the last few months and it was a real pleasure to host our own event there.

I welcomed people in with hugs and smiles and within moments all the pre-event nerves and niggles had faded. Smut events are work for me, but they’re also a great deal of fun and once the people have arrived and the smut has begun my stress levels dissipate.

Zak Jane Keir started off the day with some Kinky Fuckery for fun. It was an interesting workshop on non-typical BDSM relationships, fetishes, partnerships and story ideas.  There was lots of audience participation and many interesting ideas. Some including the various people written on this board. Now there’s a list of people I never imagined seeing all together!

After Zak, there was a break in proceedings so people could check out the Book Stall and the world famous erotic tombola sponsored by AmazingO.co.uk with  spectacular prizes  from Uber Kinky, Nice N Naughty, Toys 4 Naughty Boys , Sheets of San Francisco, System Jo and Love Honey.

Then it was party time with  K D Grace‘s  book launch of ‘The Tutor’ which was inspired by Kay Jaybee‘s Workshop on Everyday Kinky at last year’s Smut Manchester. Never has a tin of pears inspired such creativity!  I love these gals, I wish we could see each other more often, we always have such fun together and I was incredibly proud to be launching KD’s book especially as the idea for it came from one of our Smut events.  It just shows that all the hard work we put into these things is more than worth it.

We enjoyed a reading slam  featuring smut inspired authors, myself, KD,  Jennifer Denys and Slave Nano. I read from Smut in the City, I love the scene in the fountain and KD’s reading from The Tutor had everyone in the room craving pears…wow.

 

We shared some bubbles, cupcakes and snacks to celebrate but I forgot to take photos because I’m a numpty. Ha. As we had some time before the next workshop I ran into the School room to make some Latex lovelies with the folks from Kink Craft

 

I thoroughly enjoyed making a paracord flogger last year and this time I got to make a latex pretty. So Much fun but it is quite fiddly and there’s *lots* of waiting. Andrew and Pixie are great fun and wonderful teachers. I thought it was very appropriate that they should be in the School room.  Kay Jaybee came to join me and we had a lovely chat as I tried to wrestle my latex into a pretty bow…I did finally achieve it!

I have to admit that I was very nervous about the Impact play Demo. Not because I was going to be hit, Sensei has hit me several times before and I trust him completely, it was the having an audience which set my stomach flipping. Especially as I was stripping down to my (new) lingerie so people would be able to see marks forming.

I needn’t have worried, all the smut people were great. I think Sensei felt the pressure of having several experienced Doms watching on but he did brilliantly. He’s a great teacher and gave out some general safety tips before showing off his implements. I think it was a great session, the Doms attending chimed in with valuable information and I got hit, which always makes me happy.

Sensei started by showing why the Little Bastard from Mav’s Floggers is so named. I got a matching strip on each thigh – both blooming into redness immediately and bruised by the end of the work shop. I have a  love/hate relationship with that thing. It’s especially evil when you’re not expecting it. Perfect for a sneak attack.

Next, he hit me with the Dom Stick, originally purchased from The Bondage Man, a thin, hard paddle which hurts like a bugger. I gave myself the task of explaining the pain after being hit, that was not that simple. Trying to explain why the pain is pleasurable was also a challenge. If I can make up a word that means ‘it really fucking hurts, but it’s really fucking good and I like it’ I’ll be forever immortalised in the kink world I think.

I also got hit with another implement from The Bondage Man, nicknamed ‘The Nod’ it’s a rubber paddle covered in bobble nodules which marks beautifully.

I got moved  to lean over the massage table for the kendo strike, which sliced right through me beautifully. I do love the kendo cane. It hurts intensely and develops long after the initial hit. If you want one for yourself, check out Love Me Spank Me .

Things went a little differently when Sensei deferred to a Dom named 47 for flogging and whipping. That man is seriously good with a whip. each stroke felt like a feather light tickle but it hurt like the devil. I ended up with a very sore back and many shocked smutters! In a good way, I don’t think we scarred anyone or anything. But seeing a whipping is not something easily digested.  I shall add the picture of my whipped back to the very end of this post, so if you don’t want to see it you don’t have to. I’ll add a photo of it 4 days later too, so you can see how it has developed. Scroll past the 5th Birthday party poster if you want to see my marks!

Great thanks to 47 for his flogging and whipping skills and Sensei for not only hitting me, but helping with the whole impact play workshop.

After tea, the evening became much more of a laid back affair, with people free to use the dungeon/ask questions as they wanted. I was thrilled to see so many people in there getting their teeth into play, questioning or a mixture of both. Though someone got over enthused near one of my signs…it’d been whipped into shape!

We were meant to have more readings and a wax play demo using the amazing Sheets of San Francisco, but we just ran out of time but don’t despair, there will be another Smut event at Miss T’s on the 28th January with a theme of Restraint, so we’ll get lots more BDSM goodness then. Check out the Facebook event for Smut:Restrained for updates.

It was a tired Victoria who ended the day, sore too but I was incredibly happy. What a day. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed exploring the kink world for real in the last 5 months or so, it was a thrill to introduce some of my author friends to it too. Many thanks go to Sue, Jay, Animal and the Kitchen Bitch for making us so welcome, and looking after us all so well and  for their willingness to answer questions (that goes for Master Willow and 47 too) so eagerly.

I can’t wait for the next one!
