Come out for the fun of testing your skills maneuvering obstacles, with carts or on hoof, where only one of the team knows where they are going. We won’t won’t say which one!

Dark Roleplaying with Lee Harrington
We have been “playing pretend” since we were young… but the realm of kinky sexuality opens up all new directions roleplaying can take. Join us as we explore the shadowy realms of our fantasies and roles we can try on: abduction, abuse, torture, snuff, fantastical realms and anywhere else our twisted minds can dream up. We will discuss the joys of playing in our closet, why these dark desires turn us on, how to bring up these taboo interests with our partners, negotiating our desires, and troubleshooting the challenges these types of fantasies can elicit.

Hotter, Safer Cocksucking with Sam Savage
Love going down on outie bits but risk-averse? Frustrated with the lack of condoms designed for anything but pregnancy prevention? In this hands- and mouth-on class you will learn some of the key differences between ‘giving head’ with and without a condom and how to give your partner brain-breaking pleasure either way.

Inside the Ropes with Whittney and Willow
Whittney and Willow are known for their dynamic suspensions: exploring the range of a tie and moving through multiple poses without ever needing to re-tie a single line! This class explores what you, as the person in rope, can do to be a more active, engaged, and badass bottom. There is no one “correct” way to bottom; this class’s goal is to increase your repertoire of shapes to make and inspire creativity and comfort with playing in rope. Willow and Whittney will be focusing on a cooperative tying structure and skills which are entirely applicable for self tiers as well. This session is not just for bottoms!

Power Exchange, Power Dynamics: Conscious Inequality, Dominance, and Submission with Lee Harrington
Power permeates our every interpersonal interaction, from how we interact with the grocery clerk to our kink in the bedroom, and there is a difference between unconscious and conscious power use. However, in a variety of alternative sexuality and BDSM populations, these concepts are eroticized, often glossing over the context where these consensual erotic power plays come from. Let’s examine where power arises unconsciously or through oppression in culture, various types of power exchange dynamics, and why people would want to engage in them (for an evening, a long-term connection or between lifetimes). This will include conscious and unconscious roles, bonding within relationships, and even destructive behaviors. Power is power, but inequality is not inequity, so let us look at this together with eyes wide open.

Risking Connection: Setting Intent for Intimacy at Events with Sam Savage
Sacred sexuality events give us the chance to connect with others in hot, intimate, enriching and sometimes profoundly transformative ways. When engaging with others at such events do you ever consider what your goals are for the encounter? (Beyond mutual pleasure of the moment, of course!) Sometimes the partner we find in that class or in the field is simply a stand-in for an opportunity to experience love or growth in our lives. Other times there is a deep heart connection that sparks and emerges from the weekend blossoming into an ongoing relationship. Can you know before how the encounter may impact you? Probably not! However, by being present with each other’s desires you can set intent for how intimate encounters may evolve. This class will address how to examine your goals for intimacy at an event and how to communicate about those goals quickly and easily within the flow of spontaneity, with attention to how the environment of conventions or events magnifies the intensity of connection and how to decide whether you sustain that with a partner after the event. We will also explore how to use opportunities for intimacy and sexual connection with new people to enhance intimacy with existing partners and ethical considerations for such. While physical consent is understood as a core tenant of healthy sexuality, this class addresses exploration of consent around each other’s hopes and the possible after-effects of engaging in intense and sudden intimacy.

Staples: Simple, Decorative, & Sadistic with Willow

Trauma and Kink with Ev
Kink itself is not inherently based on trauma, but there are many ways in which kink can be used as a conduit for healing. Varieties of kinky technologies and mindsets can be fun in and of themselves, but combined with awareness we can make scenes more trauma-informed and help our healing processes along the way. Together, let us think about the ways that trauma survivors are drawn to kink, and in turn how trauma and kink interact with each other.
· Think about the ways that trauma survivors are drawn to kink
· Explore how kink can be a conduit to heal from trauma
· How can we make our spaces more trauma aware so that healing can happen.
