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!

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

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

You can get tickets right on our tickets 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!

And yes…rumours are true.  We WILL have a giant robot that you can tie people to at this year’s Geeky Kink Event!  Check it 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 ticket 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!

Dinner With Cthulhu - by Mitra

Mmm, tasty Cthulhu – by Mitra

“At a formal dinner party, the person nearest death should always be seated closest to the bathroom.”

-George Carlin

I don’t care where I sit, as long as I get fed.
~Calvin Trillin

We’re splendidly happy to offer you two spectacular experiences which are both culinarily splendid and, as is our trademark, uniquely geeky and frequently naked.  We most cordially invite you to…

Dinner With Cthulhu

Dinner With Cthulhu is our premium show.  It stars our burlesque troupe, Uncle Monty’s Mollyhouse, the acclaimed burlesque/comedy/madness troupe.  There’ll be humor, satire, and wit.  There’ll be disrobing, dance, and delicious snark!   Some of their skits may be rather Lovecraftian. They probably won’t drive you mad with horrific understanding of things best left unknown. That would be dessert.

They’ll delight you, amuse you, and move you to fits of laughter.  If that doesn’t work, they’ll throw their clothes at you.  They’l be performing an interactive bawdy Victorian show for your edification and pleasure.  Mostly pleasure.  Okay, almost entirely pleasure.

As it was written, “When dead Cthulhu rises from his house at R’lyeh, there’ll be an omnisexual cast of terribly attractive dandies to make fun of it.

But that’s not all!  The dinner theatre tickets also include:

Dinner With Cthulhu!  All-you-can-eat!  (No, really, this is an all-you-can-eat event.  It’s not actually an event wherein Cthulhu eats you.  While that would be ironic and interesting, when given the choice between having unlimited tasty food and being devoured by horrors from a world beyond normal ken, we’ll usually take tasty food.)

Please note:  This is not “hotel sushi”; we’ve brought in a sushi chef to make all of the sushi in his restaurant and bring it over, freshly and within minutes, to this dinner.  This is restaurant-quality sushi, plus a freshly-catered, limited-edition of the Radisson’s breakfast, personally prepared by their head chef!

The menu features a combination of two of our attendees’ favorite things – a Breakfast Buffet with fresh eggs, fluffy pancakes, sausage, and, of course, bacon bacon bacon bacon  bacon; with gourmet Awesome Sauce (no, really, Awesome Sauce is a thing)  and an all-you-can-eat supply of freshly-made Sushi.   If you can find another dinner theatrical which features restaurant-quality sushi and unlimited bacon for this price, we’ll eat our hats.  Those of us who don’t own hats will buy them.

This is a lovely event for bringing a date, and a grand way to meet people.

Here’s Iris Explosion of Uncle Monty’s Mollyhouse at one of our other events, The Steampunk World’s Fair:


Tickets for the Dinner are $45 per person.

Eating Candy Off Of Naked People

CandyOffNakedPeople

There’ve been a few events which have had situations where people eat sushi off of other folks. It’s often in very formal settings, sometimes as part of rather fancy events.

We love sushi, but we also REALLY love candy, and we decided to choose “eating candy” because candy’s affordable, fun, and fits the playful nature of our event.

…okay, who are we kidding? WE JUST WANTED AN EXCUSE TO EAT A LOT OF CANDY.

 

Tickets are $21 per person.

GKE II was pretty amazingly awesome, thanks to all the wonderful people who helped make it so! GKE 2013 is again the first weekend in November (that’s November 1-3, 2013!), and we’re back be at the Radisson of Piscataway.  There are many excellent hotels in the area, AND there’s a volunteer room and ride share you can use if you’d like – that’s right here!

We’re honored to have, as our Guest of Honor, the noted author, speaker, teacher, and kink innovator Lee Harrington!  Find out more on our workshop page!

Lee is not simply an extraordinary teacher and educator, he’s also amazingly sweet, fun to be around and (not so secretly) more than a bit of a geek.   He’s taught all over the world, and he’s possibly coming all the way from Alaska just to be with us!

And don’t forget to check out our awesome catered Special Events!
