New Orleans, LA – DomCon will be holding a traditional Second Line Parade in the French Quarter as part of the DomCon New Orleans convention, honoring ProDom/mes in the BDSM community, who have recently passed away.
“Like New Orleans, the BDSM Community is rich with tradition” stated Mistress Cyan, DomCon founder. “We’ve initiated an annual international memorial for all professional dominants, mourning their loss, while proudly marching together with those who are still with us.”
The parade will start Friday, October 5th at 8:00 P.M. with a gathering at the Canal Street entrance of the DomCon host hotel, Astor Crowne Plaza. The parade route will circle through the French Quarter for about a half mile, and return to the host hotel for the DomCon Friday night 9 pm play party. Second Line Parades are a uniquely New Orleans tradition, where mourners follow the lead of the First Line of immediate family and a brass jazz band. The band begins with a sad dirge, they then break into joyful music to celebrate life as the paraders dance behind them and anyone is welcome to jump in to join in the revelry.
Cyberspace – The latest issue of Sinical Magazine is out. This month’s alternative fetish modeling and photography magazine features an interview with Fetish Artist of FetishArtist.net. The article includes recent work by the artist and insights about his Femdom and bondage artwork.
“I ask myself how I can push a piece, and what I can do that has either not been done, or I haven’t done,” says Fetish Artist in the interview. “For example, the bunny ear masks have been making the rounds for over a year. So I began to think how I would do bunny ears without copying the style. One way was to turn it into a gas mask.”

For Professional Dommes, this may be the most important seminar of the year.”
