Demos and Workshops
We've been running demonstrations at the BBB since the very beginning. In fact, the BBB was the first UK fetish event to offer free monthly demonstrations.
During the years which we have been running, we have widened the definition of demonstrations to include workshops and discussions, and our unique performances. Subjects for demonstration and/or discussion have included technical and practical information on bondage, flogging, single-tails, electrical play, fire-play, wax-play, pony play, scene etiquette, role-play, and many others.
We have been fortunate to have had presentations by some of the UK's foremost experts in their craft, and we have also welcomed visiting demonstrations from the USA and the Netherlands. These demonstrations have proved to be invaluable for new-comers to the BDSM scene, but have also been appreciated by experienced players who can recognise that learning never stops, and that there are always new twists to some of the oldest games.
However, the "jewel in the crown" of the BBB over the years has been in the performance area. In December 1999 we presented (to a rapturous and appreciative audience) the world’s first ever BDSM pantomime, "Sinderella and the Magic Butt-Plug". A month later we presented the first of our (now) annual Fetish Fashion shows, reclaiming fetish fashion back from the "body police", and showing that ordinary people can look fantastic in fetish clothes.
Each year we have had Fantasy and Role-Play performances that have included electric-play light shows and spectacular fire-shows. In December 2004 we presented (again, to a rapturous and appreciative audience) "My Fair Subbie", the world's first BDSM musical.
The demos are organised by Keith, but with the active participation of a huge number of other people. If you'd like to be one of those people get in touch with him.
November 2018 Dirty Talk
Ever wanted to talk dirty to your partner, but not sure how or what to say? Or ever tried to, got it totally and utterly wrong, and made a complete pillock of yourself?
Well then this participatory demo is for you, and is aimed at developing confidence with dirty talking.
FaceofBoe ~ organiser and host of Xtasia's sexual play event SHAMED, and lover of dirty talk and hot phone sex, will be joined by friends to talk through the do's (and more importantly) the don'ts of talking dirty.
They'll be encouraging you all to let your kinky filthy sides get vocal, all in a sexually healthy way and without a single 'yeah baby' in sight.
It's a new demo subject for the BBB and after nearly 20 years, that in itself is an achievement.
Free as part of your entry to the BBB (what a bargain!). On the top floor from 1.30pm. Wheelchair accessible.
