This year we have two delectable offerings for you to nom upon! Feast your peepers on these and memberships are on sale now on our registration page!

Eating Candy Off Of Naked People: $21 per person

“I have one metric fuckton of candy.” ― Brent Black​

GKEClassic-EatingCandy - Edited

You may’ve heard of eating sushi off a volunteer human table. It’s often in very formal settings, sometimes as part of rather fancy events. And while we love sushi, we also REALLY love candy… (do you see where we’re going with this…?) That’s right! We get to choose what we eat off of other folks and we chose candy again! It was a great hit (pun intended) last year and it’s affordable, fun, and fits the playful nature of our event rather perfectly. And…y’know…WE JUST WANTED AN EXCUSE TO EAT A LOT OF CANDY. Given that we’re adults, we can do just that; come join us!

Brainy Build-Your-Own Buffet- (w/ a Side of Burlesque!): $45 per person

“I like food. I like eating. And I don’t want to deprive myself of good food.”
- Sarah Michelle Gellar

Build Your Own Buffet – We’re special ordering gourmet burgers (beef, veggie, and turkey), hot dogs, mashed pototatoes, and burgers, and we’re going to serve them with a MASSIVE fixin’s bar, full of tons of delicious things to pour atop your meal.  The permutations are endless!  (Okay, not literally endless, but Jeff Mach is really bad at math, so he can’t actually tell you how many permutations there’ll be.  “Lots,” he says.)

AND!
The most famed and beloved acts by this famed and beloved burlesque troupe – The Ink & Paint Club Burlesque! See performances and acts not seen anywhere else at the event and nom upon food how YOU want it. Start with the basics of juicy burgers (beef and veggie), tacos, hot dogs, and mashed potatoes and add all kinds of things from our MASSIVE fixin’s buffet. Oh, the cheese! Oh, the bacon! Oh, the…everything! Oh, the delicious! Soft drinks also provided to wash down your delightful creations. There will also be special brainy guests in addition to the dinner burlesque show!

Memberships Are Now Available!

crowley-and-aziraphale - by Sarah Linde

This is “Crowley and Aziraphale”, by Sarah Linde, based on characters in “Good Omens” by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Presumably, both of them are hanging out and relaxing while they wait for GKE to come around.

Welcome!

Memberships to the world’s greatest geeky kink event are NOW available!  Remember, this event DOES sell out and DOES hit its attendance cap–NO memberships will be sold at the door.

Memberships are on our famous sliding scale of $50 or $70 – pay what YOU fell you can afford!  We trust you.

You can get memberships right on our memberships page!

To stay at our hotel, The Radisson of Piscataway, just be sure to call them (don’t use their website) at 732-980-0400, and DO tell them it’s for “GKE” or “The Geeky Kink Event” – if you don’t mention the event, they’ll tell you the hotel is sold out!

New shibari book by last year’s Nerdvert of Honor – Help!

 
020-Cover2
Lee Harrington, Nerdvert of Honor for GKE Classic 2013, has a new shibari book and needs your help to fund it! More Shibari You Can Use: Passionate Rope Bondage and Intimate Connection features gorgeous full color photos by friend of GKE, RiggerJay!

Real people of various sizes, genders, orientations, and relationship styles (like poly!) are all represented in the book. There are also some nerdy pics (including Lee tying up a chair) and people untying each other and having fun.

Take a look at the indiegogo link here, which ends 2/10/2014: indiegogo.com/projects/more-shibari-you-can-use

GKE: New England bonus!

When you contribute at or higher than the $25 level, and the the fundraiser goes above the 40k mark, you’ll get a 10% off membership code to GKE: New England.

In Lee’s own words:
“I really want to get this book out into the world because we need books not just about the “how-to” of bondage (which the book has a lot of), but the *why* of bondage. Readers will get a chance to connect more with their partners through a variety of exercises that explore touch, sensual dominance and submission, intimacy and trust. The book also brings some more intermediate techniques for those ready for a challenge, broken down into clear picture-by-picture directions for new and experienced riggers alike (ranging from Texas handcuffs up to head cages and reverse box ties).

I’m also a fan, like yourself, of sexy models of all sizes, ages, genders and ethnic backgrounds. By breaking the mold away from a world that says only a small demographic of individuals can have a sexually adventurous life, the clear step-by-step material in “More Shibari” will be bringing easy opportunities for fun and artistic play to a broader audience. Which is about bloody time, right?”

Thank you for an amazing GKE III!
