Anonymity and events: how do you stay safe?

A while ago someone emailed to ask me about anonymity at Eroticon. Understandably, given that a lot of the people who attend write under pseudonyms, it’s one of the most frequently asked questions. Can I stay anonymous if I attend Eroticon? And what processes are there to help me do that? I figured, given that I’m anonymous, that I might be quite well-placed to answer this, so here’s an overview on Eroticon’s...

I spoke to Anna Sky, who runs the fantastic Sexy Little Pages, to see if we could...

If those rooms were not all sold then everyone who had booked would...

The Business of Business

Written by KinkCraft I was reading Girl on the Net’s brilliant article on Freelance pricing: deciding what to charge and I thought I could offer a little insight into the other side of that coin. We are an up and coming adult toy company and have been lucky enough to have been at the last two Eroticon’s. We have met a lot of the most prominent members of the community in the UK (and a few from Europe) and I have to say you could not...
