In 2015, with the help of some really good people, we started Concations because we wanted to do good things for the community and for people. In our local community, advanced educational opportunities were lacking, so we worked hard to bring those opportunities and build community.
We also believed there was a place in our international community for a retreat-style rope and educational event that allowed people to connect and grow over the course of a week or more. Our vision blossomed into BeachBind.
BeachBind grew into a popular annual rope-bondage family reunion. It was a magical place where people could be themselves for a week, connect on a deeper level with like-minded people (not rushed over the course of a weekend con) and receive significant, intensive-level educational opportunities.
We are proud of what we accomplished with BeachBind. We not only achieved our vision, we gave back to the communities that we affected. We donated over $7,000 to the local Jamaican LBGQT organization, J-Flag, and nearly $10,000 for education scholarships to help those overcome financial barriers to bondage education. We hope that we can continue those efforts.
BeachBind is currently on hiatus indefinitely. Will we do it again? Perhaps someday, but it needs a break.
We know, however, that there are many that already miss their kinky Hedo family, and we do not want to disappoint! About three years ago we started working on a different event called Kinky Caribbean. Kinky Caribbean envisioned a broader group of kink, BDSM, hedonists, fetish-loving, alt, rope bondage, and otherwise adventurous sex-positive people for a week of connection, education, and play on the beach. We were very close to pulling the trigger in 2020 when COVID hit.
Kinky Caribbean is going to launch in a slightly different, less-formal format this October, in the nature of a a hosted kinky group vacation. Less structured than our previous events, Kinky Caribbean will give you more time to relax, get kinky, connect with new kinky friends, and enjoy your kink-cation. Of course there will be hosted nightly beach play parties, meet n’ greets, cigar circles, protocol meals, “Un-con” workshops, excursions, and other planned gatherings.
We are excited to welcome our Kinky Caribbean hosts, the Daemon Danes family (Daemondanes IG/FL), to the Concations organization. We are thrilled and honored to assist them in growing this new event.
For the BeachBind family, there will be the expected hard points, bamboo, and plenty of time to learn and do rope and photography as well, and of course that same magical vibe. We already know we will see many of you there.
For those that have BeachBind credit, your credits will be good for Kinky Caribbean for your hotel portion (the resort has agreed to extend your credit through the end of the year).
For those that wish to join the Kinky Caribbean group, please move quickly because some room categories are currently sold out for that week.
We are looking forward to a relaxing and positive experience with those that wish to join the Kinky Caribbean group this October.
