Q: I don’t understand. What is a title contest?
A: Our contest is for the Florida Power Exchange Title. It is an opportunity to show others how your individual dynamic works. Whether that be as a couple or triad. You do not have to ‘be Leather’ to run for this title. All dynamics are encouraged to run! Our titleholders then move on to the International Power Exchange Contest held each Spring at Beyond Leather. Please see the definition below and contact [email protected] with any questions or to get started on your title contest journey!
DEFINITION: Title contests (also known as leather contests, for those which are specific to the leather community) are events in which contestants compete for an honorific title which is bestowed upon the winner. They have existed since the 1970s, and may represent an bar, club or organization, geographic region, business, or an entire identity. They take all shapes and sizes from a small bar contests to major events (source: Leatherpedia)
Q: What is the dress code at FPE?
A: We do not have the entire hotel to ourselves YET. The other hotel guests have not consented to WWITWD. Street legal/PG-Rated is required in all public access areas including the parking lot, lobby, restaurant, elevator and pool area. Behind our conference curtain, you can be more risque but sexy bits are still required by Florida law to be covered – sexy bits meaning nips, vagina, penis and you need at least a g-string for the crack of your booty. Please do not flash toys around in public areas. Please do not sit on hotel chairs with a bare bottom, that’s just ew and no one wants ew; bring a towel or blankie to put down first please. We would like to be able to come back to the hotel next year so please be respectful of both the conference and the hotel itself.
If we sell out the hotel, we will update these policies.
Q: What is a Community Support Sponsor?
A: You! Events, munches, title holders, clubs, groups, individuals, businesses…you name it! Community support sponsors are those groups or individuals that want to help out. Simple as that! Sometimes it is a small cash donation (not usually), but most often its a donation of items, from water bottles to snacks, sanitizer to stuffies, condoms to gender stickers and everything in between! Other times you or your group may choose to volunteer to do something at the event, like run the hospitality room for 3 hours and provide snacks while promoting your event/business/title/self! It’s the easiest way to sponsor! Interested? Contact us today! [email protected]

A: COVID is unprecedented and ever evolving. Please find the COVID/Informed consent tab on our app and website. This information will be updated as necessary.

The only exception to this policy is in front of our FPE backdrop, new this year!
