Celebrating its 8th year, DomCon is America’s Premier Professional and Lifestyle Domination Convention. Join the world’s Top Dominatrices, Bondage & Fetish Models, Webmasters, Fetish Photographers, Performing Artists, Educators, Leatherfolk and Lifestyle People at DomCon, May 18-22 in Los Angeles.
Dom Com 2011 brings together those in the BDSM, Leather, Fetish and Professional Communities to share common interests, celebrate diversity and promote awareness through education with demonstrations, seminars, and panel discussions.
Mistress Cyan began the event as a result of the disparity and disassociation between those involved in Professional Domination and those in “The Lifestyle”. Wanting to do something that would help bridge that gap between the two communities and make it more united, she developed the concept of DomCon.
In August 2003, The Beverly Garland Hotel in North Hollywood was chosen as the location to host DomCon LA 2004. America’s Top Professional Dominatrices, Switches, submissives and Fetish Models registered to attend, and even some from Europe and Tokyo, Japan sent their registrations. Soon thereafter, Exhibitor Booths sold out and what began as a Los Angeles regional event quickly became a National Event within 60 days.
Beginning in 2005, DomCom has alternated between Los Angeles and Atlanta.
This year DomCon comes home to Los Angeles for year number eight, and it’s fifth year returning to the prestigious Hilton Hotel LAX. With the addition of The Fetishist Social and The VIP Socil, DomCon LA is sure to surpass all others, and with Mistress Cyan taking over the dungeon formerly known as Passive Arts (now known as Sanctuary Studios LAX), the Friday and Saturday play parties and Fetish Ball should be over the top!
Industry insiders arrive May 18th for a seminar. For those not in the industry, there will be an “Early Bird Cocktail Social” in The Hilton Lounge from 8-10pm.
The Mistress Dinner is scheduled for Thursday evening May 19th at 6pm and is being hosted by Mistress Cyan. The Dinner is open to all the Ladies who identify as “Dominant Women” and one guest. Professional and Lifestyle Ladies are welcome to attend. This is a great way for new Ladies atending the event to meet others, including the organizers and Guests of Honor.
Cost is $40 per person and includes the meal, tax and gratuity. Pre-registration is required and attendance is limited to 40.
Friday Night May 20th DomCon presents the largest Play Party of the year in Los Angeles at one of the largest and most prestigious Dungeons in the country, the 7000+ square foot Sanctuary Studios. Sanctuary Studios is located just 1/2 mile away and minutes from The Los Angeles Hilton LAX where the convention is being held.
A free shuttle for DomCon LA attendees will be running between The Hilton LAX and Sanctuary Studios all evening. Full Access Attendees and VIP Guests admitted at 8:30pm, All others after 9pm.

Friday and Saturday there are numerous classes and workshops to attend, and vendors in the exhibitor hall.
“We had a difficult time coosing this years curriculum due to the large number of submissions. With well over 120 classes and workshops to choose from, we narrowed it down to to include something for everyone. There are classes for the beginner, intermediate and advanced player, educational seminars for both novice and experienced, and a number of hands on classes to help you with proper technique,” said Mistress Cyan.
Sanctuary Studios, the host for this year’s Play Party and Fetish Ball, will be offering free shuttle service between the Hotel and Sanctuary Studios for those wishing to rent their facilities for private sessions. For Professional Dommes, the room rental cost will be a very special $ 60 per hour which includes use of any toys in the equipment room.

The Mistresses Tea has become one of The DomCon favorites over the years. Originally hosted by the late Sabrina Belladonna at the first DomCon LA in 2004, The Mistress Tea has become a tradition and has been presented at each and every DomCon in LA and Atlanta ever since. This Sunday afternoon Tea is open to all The Mistresses, both Professional and Lifestyle, to meet and mingle in a casual environment as they are served by submissive males and maids as the convention winds down. This is a great opportunity for The Ladies to still meet those who they have not yet met, and socialize with the ones they have. The DomCon LA 2011 Mistresses Tea starts at 3pm.

Mistress Lexine, sponsor of the Pet Awards on Saturday, is an intuitive and creative Lifestyle and Professional Domme. She says she seeks long-lasting relationships w/ subs built on mutual interest, trust and respect.
“I understand and live the lifestyle and I know how to give the sub/slave/fetishist what they crave and I know how to push their limits and please Mistress. I currently reside and session in LA, but also travel to San Francisco and NYC and am available for worldwide travel w/ proper notice. I consider myself more of a sensual Domme, but can also be very harsh and sadistic if needed. I adore foot worship and have been told I have incredible feet. I adore making them smelly and dirty so you can clean them for me. I also enjoy leg, ass cheek, and armpit worship and have a natural aroma you will crave. I’m always looking for new toilet pigs and love marking my territory and filling a subs mouth. Verbal humiliation is a specialty of mine and I will put you in your place and treat like whore you are. I thoroughly enjoy what I do and may enjoy it more than you! I love putting a sub over my knee and giving him the spanking he deserves then telling him what a good boy he is for taking Mistress’ punishment. My personal slave is available for voyeur type sessions for those that like to watch Mistress at work or for participation in a session. Email Mistress for further details. Mistress enjoys training subs and taking them to places they never thought they could go; pushing their limits, but doing so safely and w/ safe words. Newbies are a favorite, as I get excitement from introducing a sub into the wonderful world of BDSM. I’d love and be honored to be the first to take this journey w/ you.”
Sponsor of The DomCon Fetishist Social, Mistress Liliane Hunt is a fetishist, a disciplinarian and a sensual sadist.
“As a Fetishist, I began at fourteen, wearing Victorian boots, leather gloves and corsets. Something about the soft suede, covered buttons and tight lacing intrigued me. I have continued expanding my desires and interests. I am particularly attracted to leather, latex, corsets and boots. To walk into my closet is to be seduced by texture, sight and smell. As for Discipline and Sadism, I have always enjoyed the exchange of power. I am composed and orderly, sensual and sadistic, refined and playful. I am the mother, the teacher, the goddess and the trainer (For very naughty boys, I am the Juvenile Court Magistrate.) What excites me? Looking into the eyes of complete submission; pushing boundaries; making you ask for more; the art of teasing, seduction and denial. What’s Important? What matters most is that the connection is real. Each session is unique because each client’s needs are unique. Why do I do this? Play, training, and discipline are all a dance for me, a movement between people. I love the dance. Watching classical ballet similarly moves me with its themes of discipline, restraint, intensity, passion and beauty. Where do I play? A fully equipped play space in a safe residential neighborhood in San Francisco. Outside of the dungeon My passions include afternoon tea and the pursuit of things antique and tea related, reading on a variety of subjects from etiquette and protocol, to philosophy and world religion, attending and being attended at the ballet, dressing for dinner and fine dining, listening to music from classical to world and running my house and stable of one pet, one sissy maid and one boy. I am a member of the Society of Janus, the San Francisco Citadel, and SF Stampede. My skills are in BDSM only.”
