Rowen’s Adventures At Kink Camp

campA few weeks ago, after ascertaining if I had a drivers’ license, a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to go with him to an adult sleep away camp… thing. What’s an adult sleep away camp… thing?

Do we go somewhere fun in the US we’ve never been to before, like Chicago? Do we go back to New York, Key West, or San Francisco?  Continue reading
