Looks like it's time to remind someone who's in charge and impose a little disciplineTry not to pee, then fail because it’s hot. Also intertwined with desperation and wetting. Unlike watersports, where the focus is on the fluid itself, the focus here is on the act of holding the peeAn age gap far beyond what you’d typically expect to see in a relationship; exact numbers are up to you
-Consider: is it a punishment or a funishment? Has somebody neglected their tasks deliberately? Are they resistant to the domestic discipline relationship or are they all in?Consider: pressure in the belly, the growing need to relieve oneself, not being able to hold it any longer; why can’t the full-bladdered person let go?

Is this a punishment or a reward?Consider: bug chasing; is this limited to fantasy or an activity someone engages in? Are they forthcoming about their kink with their partner(s)? What’s driving them: a draw towards a taboo, as a means to submit or connect with a partner? How does the setting and time inform the character’s relationship with bug chasing?
Aug 25thGagsGenital tortureDubcon
-Things put in mouths to make someone stop talking, force their mouth open, and/or encourage droolingGot some genitals on loan? Why not make them really, really hurt! Sadomasochism centred around someone's junk.

Aug 26thOrgasm denialSoundingSomnophilia

Aug 27thLeatherMasochismMutilation
-Protocols and styles of dress involving leather connected with BDSM and gay/dyke communitiesHurt me daddy, it's the only way I'll learn, by which I mean get off. One or more partners likes a side–or a heaping helping–of pain with their pleasureIntentionally causing lasting bodily harm
-Consider: public BDSM play; leather clothing and accessories; bootblacking; hanky codeConsider: what kinds of pain do they enjoy? Impact play, like spanking/slapping/flogging? Cutting, burning, choking, scratching?? Love hurts!Consider: which parties are agreeing ahead of time and what are their limits (and does the other person/people care)? Can the injury heal?

Aug 28thPet playHigh protocolDrowning

A behaviour or set of behaviours assigned to a particular place, for set periods of time or during specialised situations, such as events or parties.

Can be considered as a genre of death kink or as extreme breath play

Dunking over the side of a bath? Tied to something heavy and sunk? Is the drowning accidental or purposeful breath play? How much control does the top have over the water?

Aug 29thFeetPredicament bondageMurder
-All 10 toes may not be presentRestraining someone in a position that is uncomfortable or high-stress in some way, such as on tip toesTaking a life
-Consider: are they polished and cared for or smelly and filthy? What's the appeal - the shape, the size, the toes (or lack thereof)? Is there particular footwear included in the kink? Is someone worshipping them, licking them, being fucked by them?Consider: one-bar prisons; anal hooks; suspension; incorporating sensations so that the bound party cannot get away from stimulation–or cannot get to itConsider: Are the characters murdering someone else together?

Does the murderer do anything to make it specifically sexual or hot?
Aug 30thFeminizationNeedle playInfidelity
-Also known as sissification: role play where a male or typicallly-masculine submissive takes on a stereotypically feminine role, often but not always using a heavy amount of condescension.

Is he cis at the beginning? Is he (still) cis at the end?Consider: play piercings; permanent piercings; needle designsConsider: are they being sneaky about it and is that part of the appeal? Does the shame and guilt only make it hotter? Has infidelity led to a secret family situation? Has there been a miscommunication about relationship boundaries and oops, someone just inadvertently cheated?
Aug 31stOverstimulationFearMacro/Micro
-Continued sensation after orgasm can lead to overstimulation. Typically pleasurable stimulation begins to feel like “too much” or even painfulSometimes the adrenaline of being scared can make a situation incredibly hot; knowing someone is scared of you can be one hell of an ego boostIn which one character is significantly and unrealistically large or small
-Consider: is this accidental or planned? Solo or forced onto someone? Do we have a goal or are we just being mean? Just how angry are we willing to make their cunt/cock/body part?Consider: bumps in the night that turn out to be real; intimidation; unnegotiated/under-negotiated domination; reckless (or controlled) knife or gun play; hunting your first mate for sportConsider: does the size difference have a sexy cause? Are the characters still human or something other? How do they feel about being crushed, controlled or caged, devoured or engulfed? Consider fantasy races like fairies or giants as well as pet-sized versions of humans

Welcome, Campers!
We are thrilled to have you here at Izzy Canyon Kink Camp 2023. We have a whole month of fun activities planned for you, so make your way to your tent, get settled in, and let’s begin.
What is Canyon Kink Camp?
Canyon Kink Camp is a month-long celebration of kinks, Canyon-style. There are 93 kinks to choose from so you are sure to find something to your taste worth celebrating!
How do I participate?
The only requirement to participate in this event is to create something that addresses one (1) prompt from anywhere in the month at any point. Write any length fic, on ao3 or twitter, or draw any level of art, from a sketch to your personal magnum opus. Other creative endeavours welcome, too!
Why does this definitions list exist?
Most simply, your trusty Kink Camp Counsellors are neurodiverse and like to explain things. But also: it serves to give ideas for each prompt so that you have options, and maybe it allows you to see your way into a prompt you wouldn’t have otherwise considered. It’s easy to say “let your kinky mind go wild!” and hard to think where to even start sometimes; this list gives ideas so you get the gist of what we intended, both if you want to do something as written here or use it as your own jumping off point.
Do I have to stick to the examples given with this list?
Absolutely not, these are merely suggestions! All prompts can be tackled in any way you like, we just wanted to provide some starters for people who may be thinking about certain things for the first time
What if I don’t like any of the prompts assigned to a day?
Use a prompt from any other day instead! Prompts as assigned to days to give a structure to follow along with but are in no way mandatory for that day. Make what you want, I assure you we want to receive it.
Can I combine prompts/days?
Please! Work smarter, not harder. The prompts have been chosen with crossover specifically in mind - be creative with it!
Some of these prompts are kind of extreme
Any prompt can be written at any level of extremity and still count. Some options for toning down prompts include making it roleplay for the characters, making it a fantasy for the characters, or having it happen in a dream sequence. This is also why there are three prompts per day: every day includes at least one more “gentle” prompt to maximise the number of individual days anyone can participate while still avoiding their own squicks and triggers.
Some of these prompts are kind of gentle
Some options for ramping up any prompt include having characters not negotiate it in advance (whether or not they’re into it once it starts), making it fully non-consensual, in public, or by surprise/without advance warning.

Hey there, campers! Below are the badges we have available, for completing lil challenges during the month. If you achieve one, message us and we'll add your name to the achievements list! Happy kinking!
