London Alternative Market, a kinksters paradise. This wasn’t my first market but my first going as a little with my CG.
Its always nice to get to go out and really embrace a part of yourself you often hide but even there, going as a little was a bit off. This event is meant for anyone on the scene but obviously, some traits are more common than others.
There was only a handful of other littles there and there wasn’t much in the way of little gear to purchase but it was still a fun day. I was able to pick up a new bottle with a cute little cow on it. It also came with both the standard and extended teat. There were a number of vendors offering pacis in basic colours and the odd paci gag if that’s your thing.
I got to dress up in my new lolita inspired onesie (littleforbig.com) and I just covered up with a skirt for the walk from the train station. I had many nice people tell me how cute I looked and they were all just so supportive.
My CG and I attended a Q&A session on being a switch hosted by Foxtress. I couldn’t recommend enough going to the talks/workshops at LAM. It was such a comfortable and open environment. They are voice recorded but if you wish not to be recorded they have a system in place. The advice was very insightful and was coming from a panel with very different experiences on the topic.
The after party was a strange experience. The bar was nice and had a good range of drinks and the music was mostly 80s/90s tunes. During the after party, they display some of the equipment on offer and allow people to try it. Its a strictly no nudity and no sexual contact environment so don’t panic about people having sex in the corner.
We didn’t stay for long, but during that time, they displayed some different rigging stands and floggers and paddles. The most curious moment for me was watching a girl be viciously paddled while Toto’s Africa was playing.
As a whole, I really recommend visiting a LAM at some time and feel free to be as little as you like. Unfortunately, it isn’t the best place to meet other littles but still great.
This year I plan on attending more and more kink events. If you want to learn more about LAM, just visit londonalternativemarket.com
