A con idea
I was chatting with a fur the other day about starting up a con. I know fur cons are reproducing faster than rabbits these days, but this one would be different. A totally adult con. No one under 18 admitted.
While I love FC and AC I get a little annoyed with their "family friendly" policy. I wanted to do a skit at FC to the tune of DiVinci's Notebook's "Enormous Penis." There would be no nudity, not even cartoon nudity. But since the song featured the word "penis" it was a no-no. Then there is the issue of the separate yiffy art room. The distinction between yiffy and non yiffy is pretty silly. Ooop! Nipple! Yiffy! Cover that up! Blah.
So we're kicking around the idea about starting an adult-themed con. All of your worse fears from CSI would be brought to life! *lol* If you want to stroll around in an anatomically-correct fursuit, have at it! You want to walk your pet around on a leash? Fine. You want to wear a speedo, a fox tail, a Krispy Kreme hat, and nothing else? Go for it!
I know this idea could alienate some. There has been this push to show the world that MTV and Vanity Fair do not show the true fandom. Well, yes and no. We need to keep our G-PG rating to put the public's mind at ease about furry. I do a lot of fursuiting for the public, so yes, I need to keep up a G-rated facade. But let's also be honest. There is a lot of stuff that goes on at cons that is anything but "family friendly." Yes, it all happens behind closed doors (usually), but why not just make the room a little bigger.
I should make it clear that I'm not talking about a furry sex con. It's simply that adult themes would not be kept in the basement like a hidden Playboy magazine. You would be much more free to just be yourself. Basically, if you obeyed the laws of the city, you would be free to do your own thing. Current Mood: thoughtful
