NELA's Own Fetish Fair Fleamarket Play Party
Saturday, February 18th, 2016
NELA is VERY excited to announce that we’ll be hosting our own play party at this coming Winter Flea, Fetish Fair Fleamarket, FFF48. This year’s Winter Flea Play Party will become a ‘pure’ play party, i.e. not a mix of dance, performance and play, as it was the first two years we’ve been at the Crowne Plaza, but rather focused entirely on play. And as a special bonus, there won’t be just one play party, but two!
We realize that a lot of people would like to attend the Fetish Fair Fleamarket Play Party, so to optimize the time-space continuum, we’ve opted to host two play parties! Come early, come late. You can even come to both, if you really, really want. It’s a Double-Header Play Party.
We’ll be turning the Plaza Ballroom into a fully equipped dungeon with doors open to the Plaza Foyer where there will be social areas, a juice bar and space for negotiations and aftercare. Full nudity will be permitted in the Ballroom, *hotel friendly* in the Plaza Foyer, please.
Early Party Ticket: 6 pm - 9:45 pm (325 tickets), $20
Late Party Ticket: 10:15 pm - 2 am (325 tickets), $20
Double Header Ticket (limited to 100), $40 *(see below for important details)
Purchase your Winter Flea Play Party tickets HERE!!
A limited number of tickets will be available for both parties at $40 each.* Please note that if you purchase a double party ticket there will be an intermission from 9:45 pm - 10:15 pm when there will be no play allowed. There will be a staff change over with inspection and cleaning of the play equipment. You will need to end your scenes and vacate the play space during the intermission, although you may stay in a designated section of the Foyer. Your toy bags must be removed from the play space during intermission.
Each party will still have its attendance capped to observe fire codes, plus we want to make sure that people have more space to play and will be monitoring time spent on equipment. Please be aware of others who may be waiting to use the equipment you are enjoying, and take your aftercare needs to other available spaces.
- At con, we will be encouraging Play Party ticket holders to get their wristbands early. Make your way to the NELA Swag Table (hotel lobby, just outside the elevators) on Saturday from 12–5pm to pick up your Play Party wristband after signing our liability waiver.
- All Party goers must have a Flea wristband for entry (purchased separately) - no tickets will be sold to people not attending the con.
Suspension rigs will be available - if you wish to partake in suspension play at the party, you must go to the Suspension Vetting Session at 2:45 pm Saturday (open till 4 pm). Vetted suspension folks will get a certificate to hang on the rig during the party to assure the DM’s that certain skills have been met confirming they have been ‘vetted’ by our Rope-DM Staff.
Party Rules - mostly about safety, but also about nudity, levels of activity, and so on, but again, mostly about safety:
Listen to the DM’s and NELA Staff, they are there to help you and have the final say in the Play Party.
Drug and alcohol use are prohibited in the Play Party. If you appear intoxicated or under the influence of drugs, you will be removed from the Party.
The Party safe word is RED. If a DM staff member hears RED, they will come over to observe your scene, giving the top a chance to deal with the RED on their own. If RED is called repeatedly with no sign of stopping, a DM will step in to make sure everything is okay. A loudly-shouted “safe word!” will also be interpreted as a call for outside assistance.
Please respect other people’s scenes and personal space while playing or in aftercare. Do not interrupt or join them without permission.
Touching other people without their express consent, regardless of whether or not it is sexual, is not allowed at the Fetish Fair Fleamarket. Doing so may cause your removal from the party and/or event.
Please respect other people’s toys and equipment and don’t touch them without permission.
Please do not bring glass bottles or other breakables into the Play Party. Keep food use in the dungeon restricted and please do not consume meals in the Play Party space.
Attendees are forbidden from moving equipment in the play space. If you would like something moved, please see a DM staff member.
Modification of any kind to equipment is prohibited and may result in your ejection from the Event.
Be considerate in terms of the amount of time you spend on a piece of equipment. Monopolizing a frame or other equipment is not courteous.
Due to size of the space, please limit whips, single tails and other impact toys to those 6 feet (72″) in length.
- Cleaning supplies will be available, please wipe down equipment after use. You are expected to clean up after yourself, leaving all equipment free of sweat, bodily fluids, lubricants, etc. Bring bodily fluid contamination to the attention of a DM Staff member.
- Please plan to use the equipment for no longer than 45 minutes to an hour. We will be monitoring use and encouraging sharing with your fellow party goers!
Level of sexual activity
We strongly encourage all attendees to practice safer sex and will have supplies available in the play spaces and some of the workshop spaces as needed. No matter how you play, we require you to clean up afterwards with the provided cleaning supplies.
Anything that penetrates someone else’s orifices must be barriered - this includes toys, strap ons, fingers, fists, etc. Only exception is mouth-to-mouth kissing

The Event Staff, NELA Board, and DMs reserve the right to stop play, restrict scenes, and remove people from the dungeon at their discretion.
We cannot possibly cover every scenario, because you are creative fucking kinky people, the DM will have final say. When in doubt, ask.
Should you violate the rules, you will be asked to leave the Play Party, and possibly the event. No refunds will be given.
Neither the Event, its Officers, nor the management, volunteers, owners, or operators of the facilities, nor any agents, successors or assignees of any of the foregoing shall be liable to any attendee for injury to person or property incurred as a result of attendance at this Event.
