February Fireplay Demo 2018

With the new year now a good few weeks behind us, we gently drift into February. Cupid’s favourite month. The month of love or lurrrve, lust and fiery passions.

And what better way to warm those hearts and fan those flames of passion by joining us on Sunday 11th, for our February demo on alternative central heating with our old flames – The Fire Crew.

The Fire Crew – Hyperbolt, Grippa, Draconis666 and lil_emily will be here with one of our most popular, entertaining and visually stunning demo’s of the year. From mid afternoon and (usually) until the end of the evening, the gang are more than happy to singe, dab, burn, and caress your body with various torches. If this is something you have not yet tried, we can heartily recommend it, and if this is something you have not yet seen, we highly recommend it!

But wait, there’s more ………

As an added bonus this month, Painful Pleasures (one of our regular traders), have graciously agreed to hold a workshop in the evening for all things electrical. So for those who are interested in the electrical play side of things – from beginner to experienced, or if your curiosity has simply got the better of you, why not come along to the workshop (with no additional Charge, AMPle experience, Positive results, and discussing Current issues – yep, a shameless plug but I couldn’t resistOR getting in those electrical puns before I’m sent Ohm!)

Swamp, part market, part munch, part party, part educational/practical workshops, part gathering, but most importantly, all fun. A place where you can be comfortable and relaxed being whoever/whatever you would like to be.

Swamp Sunday February 11th February 2018 OMG Club, Frog Lane, Bristol – so many reasons to come early and stay for the entire event.

Hope to see you there.

December 13th – Electroplay demo with Elektra-UK

The use of electricity in play is ever growing in popularity. However, it is an area where safety and awareness is very important.

Elektra-UK are electroplay dealers, distributors and demonstrators, and on Sunday December 13th will be giving a demonstration at SWAMP.

During the demo/workshop they aim to show you:

Violet wand usage, including direct and secondary contact application, training and play advice for tops and bottoms, safety and aftercare.
A demonstration of E-Stim control boxes and products, along with advice on the varying applications and capabilities.
Electric shocking toys (and demonstrations for the brave) 😉
There will be a chance to have a go on both the operating and receiving ends.

The demo is free for anyone with a market ticket ( £3 ) and will start at 3pm.

June 14th – Suspension Demo with MRK

On Sunday June 14th we are very pleased to announce that the MRK rigging team have chosen SWAMP as a venue to stop off on their UK tour.

-MRK- will be your host for the proceedings, talking you through the safety of the art, some basic harnesses and techniques and telling some really bad jokes with the help of RopeAvailable.

This will be accompanied by Christian_Red with Tinx showing you the fun and art you can make out of partial and full suspension and Xinran will be being not so soft and fluffy with SmilewithStyle in order to show you how much fun mean and nasty partial suspension really can be.

The demonstration aims to be useful to the inexperienced and the experience to suspension and offer tips for both bunnies and riggers. We are especially looking to show you the fun you can have when playing with rope and not just using it for aesthetics.

The MRK rigging team will be around for the rest of Swamp and the after party in order to answer questions, help people and help people try things out, so come hunt us down and quiz us.

As usual, the demonstration is included in the price of a market ticket (£3) and will take place at 3pm.

April 12th – Singletail Whips Demo

April’s demo will put the spotlight on Singletail whips and will be presented by the highly experienced whip_cracker. We’ll let him give you the full details:

“It has been two years since the last Singletail demo at Swamp, and many years since they were demonstrated at this venue. As many of you have either purchased or shown an interest in Singletails, April 12th sees the return of myself, Whip_cracker along with Darkpool, sub_suzi and Grippa666 to talk about Singletail Whips, and to show ways to use them in the scene.

Some of you may have wanted to buy a whip but are not sure what type or size would suit you, so I will try to explain the different types and lengths available and how each has its own use or style.

There will be a darklight scene with neon whips and a demonstration of different throws with various whips from a short Signal whip to a longer Bullwhip.

I always get asked about the difference between a Fire whip and a “normal” whip so I will bring along a couple of Fire whips for you to see, who knows they might even get lit depending on space available.

There will be a variety of different whips for anyone to try after the demo. If you have never cracked a whip before but want to have a go there will be an opportunity at the end of the demo. Likewise should anyone wish to volunteer to see how a whip feels on the skin don’t be afraid to ask.

This year we will have the added attraction of showing you how a whip is made, Tactilemike will discuss the basics and will continue to braid a whip as the demo continues.

We look forward to seeing you all in April.

Mick (whip_cracker)”

The demo will start at 3 pm and is free to anyone who has purchased a market/party ticket. We recommend you get here early as this will be a popular topic.

February 8th – Fire’s Back!

Come along on February 8th to witness SWAMP favourites Hyperbolt, Draconis666 and Grippa666 do what they do best.

As Hyperbolt explains:

“The playful and happy kinksters wish to entertain and inform you with a visual demonstration of the use of their favourite element – FIRE, in SM play.

We will be demonstrating fire torch play and will feature caressing, warming and gentle body burning, all accompanied by a quirky safety talk.

We hope to convey our pleasure, joy and professionalism, in a safe, sane and stylish way and want our torches to brighten your day!

So come along and enjoy the beauty and sensation of FIRE, at a fantastic venue.”

Always one of the most fascinating topics of play for both newcomers and experienced alike, we’ve lost count of the number of introductions made with people who are eager to get involved.

Now is your chance to learn more about this colourful and mesmerising form of Edgeplay in between shopping for some new kinky gadgets.

We look forward to seeing you.

October 12th – CBT Demo by Mistress Geo

Following on from the success of the previous two CBT demos at SWAMP, Mistress Geo Pinch will be conducting a follow-up CBT demonstration. This will be held at Swamp OMG starting at 3pm on Sunday 12th October 2014 – for the uninitiated CBT is Cock & Ball Torment.

CBT is one of Mistress Geo’s main specialties and her principal love, and she was one of the three organisers of the Dr Pinch Fashion Parade at the SWAMP venue in Bristol, April 2008; she conducted her first SWAMP CBT demo in 2011, and her second in 2012.

Mistress Geo believes that bringing CBT to the people is a noble cause, and although it’s not ever likely to rival the pub quiz in popular participation, there are those who will relish the opportunity to learn more about this singular activity, and those who will want to take their knowledge to the next level. Mistress Geo has designed her demo to appeal to complete beginners as well as to advanced practitioners and she will cover a wide range of CBT techniques and implements including, for the first time, “Ananke-“, who will be demonstrating the use of needles in Dr Pinch CBT devices.

As with the previous demonstrations, an extra attraction will be the presence of the creator of the unique “Dr Pinch” CBT devices, the mad genius Dr Pinch himself, who will demonstrate his collection and offer advice accrued from well over 50 years of practicing CBT. This will be a rare opportunity to draw on a deep well of experience in this art and, of course, aficionados of CBT are urged not to miss it.

There will also be a fashion parade with lovely ladies leading around live male models adorned with a variety of CBT devices!

The demo will take place at 3pm and entry is included in the £3 market ticket price.
