Eroticon 2020 Virtual Meet & Greet: Morgan Peschek

A selfie in which I'm wearing blue lipstick and winged eyeliner, and looking at the camera all dramatic-like. I will probably look more tired at Eroticon 2020.

With just 48 hours until the start of Eroticon 2020, I’m here to introduce myself!

This post is late, and my first one for quite a while, because my brain has been on the fritz again. If you’re someone I know and you spot me at Eroticon this year (look for the blue hair!) then please be aware that I might be overwhelmed, struggle to process conversations and/or seem “off” in general. It’s not you, it’s just my wonky brain, and all I need from you is for you to be gentle with me and to understand if I need to duck into the quiet room for a bit.

If you’re not someone I know, but you’re attending Eroticon 2020, this post is for you! 

 

Name (and Twitter name) 

My name is Morgan Peschek, and my Twitter name is @KinkyAutistic. You can call me Morgan, Mo, Mog, Moggy, Momo, Morg(ue), Morgz, or basically anything other than my birth name.

My pronouns are they/them/theirs, even when I’m tarted up all femme like I probably will be at the socials.

 

Tell us 3 things you are most looking forward to at Eroticon 2020

  1. Seeing people! There are people I hung out with last year that I’m super hype to spend more time with, and I’m excited to meet new people, too – Eroticon seems to be populated exclusively by Good Eggs™, and I want to meet more of them!
  2. Learning new things, naturally – especially about building my wee blog into something that can reach more people, and hopefully even draw in some money (which I will almost certainly spend on dildos). Like last year, I’ve spent ages poring over the schedule, trying to decide between multiple amazing-looking talks and workshops, and coming to the conclusion that I wish I could be in multiple places at once.
  3. The Luke + Jack greetings cards session! I love crafting, and I imagine it’ll be a bit of a reprieve from the busy madness of the rest of the con. Plus, it’s Mother’s Day soon, and I need to sort something out for that…

 

What song always makes you want to dance?

Ooh, lots of them! At the moment, I’m really into Cake By The Ocean, but I can absolutely bop to songs ranging from The Sharpest Lives (by MCR) to Combine Harvester (by The Wurzels). I’m getting a lot less self-conscious about my dyspraxic white-people dancing these days, and really feeling the benefits of moving my body around to some tunes.

 

What is the best book you’ve read in the last year?

Oh, fuck, I haven’t read an entire book in the last year. I love reading, but depression and burnout have been kicking my ass, so I’m going to name a book I’ve read at least two thirds of – Come As You Are, by Emily Nagowski. I would like to recommend it to everyone and anyone – it’s the perfect balance of science-y, approachable and warm to read. 

 

What is your mobile wallpaper or homescreen image?

My lock screen is a selfie I took with my girlfriend, and my homescreen is a selfie I took with my Daddy. My laptop background, although you didn’t ask, is a selfie my boyfriend sent me while he was at a Pride event.

(This was just an opportunity for me to brag about my cute partners. Sorry.)

 

If someone gave you £5000 today which you were not allowed to save, but had to spend within 24 hours, what would you do with it?

Disneyland. I would go the fuck to Disneyland and nobody would be able to stop me.

 

Complete the sentence: I need…

A week off from my life to nap and finish Kingdom Hearts III and get stoned a lot.

If you want a more realistic answer, right now I need a frappuccino. I love me a caramel frap. 

 

BONUS QUESTION: What are you packing for Eroticon 2020?

I did this last year, and I will continue to be an impertinent little bastard and add in questions nobody asked! I have Cannot Shut The Hell Up Disease and I like looking at other people’s packing lists, so I assume that other people will benefit from mine.

 

  • Two cute dresses for the Friday and Saturday night socials, plus cute shoes and makeup
  • Comfy clothes and trainers for the Saturday and Sunday workshops and talks
  • An A5 notebook and a clicky pen with four colours, to make notes with
  • A Tupperware container, which may or may not be for stealing extra breakfast items from my hotel – but you can’t prove anything
  • My shiny new business cards (which I will thrust upon anyone who stands still long enough, because I’m excited about them)
  • The essentials: phone charger, meds, clean pants, etc.
  • My wonderful Daddy human, who some of you may have met at the Friday night social last year.

 

That’s me! If you’re at Eroticon for the first time and you’re nervous/don’t know anybody/want to make a friend, you can DM me on Twitter, or just come find me in person! Looking forward to spending time with all you lovely people 💙
