People who have been- I’ve akways been curious, what happens? Is there an itinerary of events, demonstrations, e-nurses, vendor displays?
I went to one a long time ago in Chicago, and that's a pretty good description. Only thing you didn't really mention was that there were a lot of oppotunities to just hang in a relaxed atmosphere - group meals, cocktail parties, etc. - time for socializing and getting to know like-minded people. There is obviously a lot of hooking up going on as a result of this, but I perceived it all as low pressure. I was asked by a couple of men if they could give me an enema, and when I politely declined they were cool about it and moved on. I guess I kind of thought it would be a convention hall filled with naked people sticking hoses up one anothers' asses, but it wasn't that. It was mostly a bunch of middle-aged folks chatting in a hotel suite. The only nudity I saw in the public space was during the couple of scheduled demo's.
There were a few e nurses casually marketing their services, including Genevieve AKA Hydromadam. I availed the services of a young switch calling herself Bella - definitely the highlight of the weekend for me.
The crowd was 90% men. In fact, as far as I could tell, every woman there was either part of a couple (and there were only a couple of those) or offering pro services.
There were a couple of e-celebrities there. I already mentioned Hydromadam (though I believe this was a year or two before she started producing videos; i hadn't known of her prior), and also Ron Tyler (producer of the Beth Tyler videos). Ron produced a video that weekend (starring Bella and one of the other e-nurses), and he also made (though I-m not sure it wss that weekend) at least two videos starring an attendee couple (enema afficianados IRL) - her name was Mae, but I cannot remember his name.
I've heard the guy who started Everything Butt was at an e-fest or 2, and The Collector has produced an e-fest video or two. So, I would not be surprised if you see an e-celebrity or two.
