DomCon LA 2024 Photos by Steven Sandler


Once again, a cross section of world’s top Dominatrixes, fetish models, fetish photographers, artisanal toymakers,performance artists, sex educators and kinky lifestylers returned this June to Los Angeles for the DomCon LA 2024. Originally conceived by the legendary matriarch of the LA kink scene, Mistress Cyan, DomCon has been and continues to be an cherished opportunity for the kink community to come together, socialize, learn, network, create content, and play hard.

Each year DomCon begins Wednesday with industry-only seminars addressing safety, legal issues, and such advanced BDSM techniques as safely engaging in edge play. The first event of pageantry and pomp is the red carpet social Thursday evening where it’s dress to shock and
impress. The red carpet is followed by the awards ceremony and Mistress Dinner.

On Friday, the vendor hall opens where attendees can shop for exquisite next-level BDSM gear for the serious player, dungeon rentals, and erotic art. Friday night is a no-holds-barred play party spanning two full banquet rooms of the hotel. All photography including professional cameras and smartphones is strictly prohibited. So in order to see it, one would need to experience it.

Saturday opens with the Mistress Photo Shoot in the Malibu Courtyard, an annual feeding frenzy for photographers. Later that night is the storied DomCon Fetish Ball, much like the Friday play party, but far glitzier. Like Friday, photos are strictly prohibited.

Sunday is always a surreal blend of warm afterglow, melancholy with the realization that it’s over, and the gravity of the logistics of leaving. Most attendees are packing and checking out of the hotel, trying to make the noon checkout deadline, many trying to make their flights, all the while, saying sad goodbyes. I have always likened it to coming up and out of the rabbit hole.

DomCon occurs every May, though it fell in June this year. If you just cannot wait until then, you can attend DomCon New Orleans in October. Rumors of DomCon Europe are still just that – rumors. But let’s keep our fingers crossed. For more information visit
