My path into the BDSM world started at least 10 years ago with my first visit to a club night called Torture Gardens. I went with a friend and really had no idea what i was getting into.
I took great pleasure in picking the perfect outfit, i wanted to fit in but i wanted to still feel covered as i'd never been on a night out wearing so little. I settled upon fishnets with a seem up the back, black latex shorts with a zip from front to back, a leopard print corset, patent red peep toe shoes finished off with lace over my eyes. I felt sexy, slim and powerful.
As we were in the queue we got talking to a gentlemen behind us and i shared with him that it was my first time, he would come to be a key part in a future TG event. The location of TG was in a gorgeous, gothic church with large high ceiling rooms with lots of dark corners, spiral staircases and cold, raw brick walls. It was perfect.
What i enjoyed most was that the energy and atmosphere was very welcoming and i felt safe. It was very different to a normal night out where i used to get my butt grabbed multiple times, i knew that if someone wanted to touch me they would have to ask for my permission. I took enjoyment knowing that.
As it was my first time, I didn't get involved with any of the scenes but observed them and spend many hours dancing to the fantastic music being played.
Overall; it was a enlightening experience and one that i was excited to repeat with a partner so i could explore the area behind the curtain. I wanted to push my boundaries and explore my growing curiosity into the BDSM world.
My eyes were opened and i wanted them to remain that way.
