We at KiSS appreciate all of the comments shared about the KiSS Equinox Ball held on 9.21.2018! We include a few here below:
”Thank you all for coordinating such a wonderful event. I have never been to a private event on this scale before! It was a marvelous and unforgettable time!”
”Fantastic event! So many great demonstrations and opportunities to meet others across the kink scene!”
”This was my type of event and much better than most I attended in the past. Sensual and erotic, not stilted and uncomfortable. A welcome addition to the kink scene in town.”
”In a simple sentence, that night, I lost virginity to a Kinky world! That says it all! What a great event it was, kudos to organizers and performers. It was an amazing experience I had, it opened the doors to an entire new world altogether. In regular life I have seen and done mild things, but what the event showed me, is the resilience, the toughness and pain is pleasure. Being new, as a single man, I was a bit nervous. However, the greatness of the event and bold and open minded people made it easy. I have not made a connection yet, but I am sure with time and new events will be promising and I am more optimistic. I am happy and grateful that I attended this awesome event, which is a lifetime experience for sure.Thank you so much for organizing this beautiful event and opening a new avenue of life for me.”
KiSS also plans monthly social opportunities in the twin cities (Sunday Brunch meet up, Karaoke nights, etc.); local over night retreats and group travel opportunities for large and small groups. Travel plans are currently in the planning process with updates to be announced on the webpage.
