WARNING: GRAPHIC DESCRIPTIONS OF PERVERSIONS THAT SHOULD BE KEPT OUT OF COMMERCIAL PUBLIC SPACES
By Peter LaBarbera
Americans For Truth has confirmed that the Holiday Inn Columbus-Worthington Hotel, at 7007 North High Street in Worthington, Ohio, is hosting a sadomasochistic celebration called (appropriately) Winter Wickedness this Friday and Saturday featuring classes on gangbang fantasies and various acts of sadomasochistic perversion and consensual sexualized violence including subjecting fellow participants to hot wax torture, whipping, cutting and needles, and being stapled with an electric staple gun.
TAKE ACTION: 1) call the Holiday Inn Columbus-Worthington today at 614-436-0700 and urge them to cancel this event for the sake of decency and public health. Pass this story on to your friends to call; and 2) call Holiday Inns corporate offices (the chain is owned by Intercontinental Hotels Group) by going to their website HERE or by calling 770-604-2000. Tell them that is wrong to profit off of degrading and dangerous perversions that could present a health hazard to hotel workers or other guests.
A page on the Winter Wickedness website for Play Space Rules & Guidelines includes this, indicating the extreme perversions likely to occur at the hotel:
15) Single tail [whip] play, Wax, Medical, Cutting, Needle play, and FirePlay, must be performed in the designated areas only. Please onsult a PSM [Play Space Monitor] for the appropriate area if you are not sure. Drop clothes, gloves, condoms, sharps containers, tarps, etc., must be used for this sort of play.
The same set of guidelines gives an indication of the extent of the deviance of leather practitioners in what it tells them they will NOT allow to occur at the Ohio event. What other conference imaginable would have to issue this shocking warning: 17) Gun Play, Golden showers (urine), Brown Showers (Feces) or Rainbow/Roman showers (Vomit) are not allowed in this venue.
Another guideline discusses the need for a tarp or drop cloth to clean up after perverse scenes:
3) Toys placed on the wooden hangers are Community AIS [Adventures in Sexuality] Property. Please return them cleaned after use. For everyones protection, we ask that you use the cleaning supplies located throughout the Play Space. If you do a wax or other messy scene, please use a tarp or drop cloth (in the designated area only). Please clean up after your scene. Leave all equipment free of sweat, bodily fluids, wax, lubricants, etc. Bring bodily fluid contamination to the attention of a PSM.
All 21 Winter Wickedness guidelines are at the bottom of this page. The location of the twisted event was uncovered by the Citizens For Community Values, a pro-family group in Ohio, with offices in Columbus and Cincinnati. A CCV staffer contacted the Holiday Inn Columbus-Worthington directly to confirm details of the conference. Staff at the hotel confirmed that the Winter Wickedness conference was scheduled for their facility. Registrations for the conference had to go through the sponsoring organization but the hotel would register conferees for their hotel rooms.
This writer also confirmed that Winter Wickedness is being hosted by the Holiday Inn Columbus-Worthington. A hotel staffer said the event started our smaller but has grown to quite a lot of people, selling out nearly all the 231 rooms in the hotel. He indicated that there would be guests staying this Friday through Sunday who are not part of the sadomasochistic event. Surely, those guests are in for a surprise unless the wicked sexual perversion gathering is canceled.
In addition, Coach Dave Daubenmire of Pass the Salt Ministries, a Christian ministry based in Columbus, is preparing to confront the hotel for allowing such revolting activities to go on in pubic conference rooms at the hotel.
The featured speaker at Winter Wickedness is Tristan Taormino, the self-described queer author of The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women and an advocate of polyamory multiple-partner relationships (see below).
Flogging, Hot Wax, or Staples?
The following are the Class Descriptions of the Winter Wickedness event, reprinted from the events website:
BDSM [Bondage & Disciple, Dominance & Submission, Sadism & Masochism] Anal Play - Tristan Taormino - Writer/sex educator (author of The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women and Down & Dirt Sex Secrets) leads you through the world of all things anal, covering a wide variety of topics,including:
the ins and outs of anal penetration incoporating anal play into a scene extended butt plug wearing anal sex, D/s, and power play strap-on anal sex an introduction to enema play plus, an extensive Q & A ask her anything! Florentine Flogging - Arcane Florentine or Double Flogging as it is more commonly called, is the art of using two floggers at the same time, one in either hand. In this course we will learn two different patterns of varying complexity. The idea is to take home a new skill, so this will be a hands on class. If possible please bring either two fairly well matched floggers, or a limited amount of trainer floggers will be available for use. You have to come to class to see what the heck a trainer flogger could possibly be. If you have any questions contact arcane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Art Of Erotic Biting - Michelle Belanger - Eager to sink your teeth into your play-partner? Before you bite off more than you can more than you can chew, let author Michelle Belanger explain the finer aspects of the erotic art of biting. Michelle teaches participants a number of different biting techniques that allow for intense but safe play. Learn when biting works in a scene and how to introduce a lover to the concept of biting. Finally, Michelle will go over the best locations for sinking your teeth into your lover.
Electric Stapling Sensation Play ~ Markher & The pennygurl This is a staple gun demo. Not medical staples, but an electric staple gun, using the same staples that we use to hang insulation in the rafters in the house. Yes, you will hear the sound of the staple gun as the trigger is pulled and watch the pennygurl as she jumps at the bite of the first staple. Yes, you will see the staple gun reloaded, maybe more than once, as staple after staple is shot into her lovely body. But that is only half the fun; just wait until you see how those staples are removed. And the sounds that come from her are just wonderful. So, if you want a new and different scene, one with a different power tool and the resulting impact play, make sure you take in this class. We will walk you though each and every step in the process, taking you from the safety aspects, the prep work, the actual scene, and finally the clean up. Who knows, you may even volunteer to be the next demo dolly
Age Play - Whos your Daddy? - British Lucky Paul Info coming soon!
Crazy Glue Invisible Bondage and Infibulation - Dov Crazy glue is steeped in the depths of urban legends of late night rushes to the emergency room to unglue hapless victims who didnt heed the warning on the label: WILL BOND SKIN INSTANTLY. This class is about demystifying this fun pervertible for mind[fs]. We will discuss and demonstrate many wonderful perversions with this super-strength glue for bondage, on genitalia for infibulation, and temporary chastity. We will also cover safety issues, some theory/chemistry of its function, and its intended medical usage.
Dancing with Flame - Fireplay & Cupping - Brian the Pyrosadist Fireplay is definitely edge play, for anything with fire is implicitly dangerous. But I have found that fireplay has a sensual eroticism and art to it that so many can relate to. Who among us hasnt sat transfixed gazing into a fires light. And to feel and witness that same sensual flow of warm flame across our bodies, lapping over, then passing and leaving only a warm lingering touch. No experience is necessary for this class, some practice materials will be available for use. Both technique, safety, and sensual/art/erotic applications will be gone over in this class. Even if you might not think its quite your thing, you might be surprised by the sensual beauty and artistry of the flame.
[Fking] Machines While Suspended without Rope - British Lucky Paul Sadly Paul lacks levitation skills so none are taught in this entertaining and enlightening class. Instead, Paul focuses on dedicated suspension equipment rather than rope. Learn how suspension cuffs and steel hardware can combine a sexy aesthetic with speed and comfort to allow for hot scenes in the air. Find out how and where to buy suspension rated equipment and learn play ideas that take full advantage of their versatility.One of the most important reasons suspension makes for such hot scenes is the illusion of danger while maintaining a reasonable margin of safety.While no suspension scene is entirely risk free, following relatively simple rules makes it safe enough that most players consider the risk acceptable.
Did Someone Say Gangbang? - Rita Seagrave Do you fantasize about getting tag-teamed [gang-raped]? Want to run a train with your buddies? Does bukkake make you drool? The appeal of gangbangs, for some of us, is to be the center of attention. For others, its about losing ourselves in a crowd of anonymous perpetrators. Whether pillow talk, porn, or real life adventure, gangbanging is the ultimate challenge in multi-tasking. Lets talk about the preparations, guidelines, and precautions for a successful gathering. And why is it impossible to write this class description without taking a masturbation break?
Journey Into Poly - Curt & Karen - This class will explore basic concepts, practices and tools for journeying into the world of polyamory. Curt and Karen will guide you through a wide array of aspects of moving from monogamy to non-monogamy including initial conversations, negotiations, communication tools and real-life examples of the good, the bad and the downright ugly. They will offer an opportunity to share in an open discussion and explore the endless possibilities of living a non-traditional lifestyle in a traditional world.
Foiling the Escape Artist: Working with Body Mechanics to Remove Advantages - Dov Preventing or delaying escape from rope bondage: This is a hands on workshop exploring various aspects of dealing with escape artist rope bottoms, and why just because you can tie a rope harness doesnt mean no one can escape it. We will be examining and working with various ties and strategies to understand how and why there are or arent effective and how to make your work more escape proof.
Well, hell, they did all that stuff in DC on the False Messiah’s Coronation Day.
What a buzzkill.
The Holiday Inn?
I thought gays were too UpMarket for the Holiday Inn.
Looks like the bad economy is even hitting the gays.
BARNEY FRANK: "...but I did stay in a Holiday Inn last night..."
This is a clear violation of the Second Amendment.
These degenerates are sad.
Is this a meeting of fags or heterosexuals?
Omnisexuals...they'll try everything.
Ironically....this stuff is more heinous than anything ever perpetrated at Gitmo. WTF is the whole 'Electric Stapling Sensation Play' about? :o
Yes, and the Democrat Congress already approved the right to piss all over the citizenry at will.
Sad Buckeye ping.
Omnisexuals ? Greedy bastards. They need to get off the fence and pick a hole.
Barn’s probably never been to Columbus. He takes his vacations at High Anus Port.
It gives you the creeps to think who slept in that bed or what was going on in that shower when you stay at a hotel... I'll opt for the motorhome anyday.
Damn, and I thought this thread was a review of the coronation and attendant goings-on in DC a few weeks ago. Then I read it and found out I was right. It’s the AFTER-PARTY!
Only two dozen ? Amateurs.
Well, Ohio does have a cornholing festival, so they figure, what the hey ? Why not Columbus ?
Ohio perversion ping!
In case anyone is looking for humblegunner this weekend.
