Prioness – Natalie is a four year old trans women with a passion for pain, poly, and all things kink. She has been in the scene since 2013, regularly attends events on the east coast, and teaches classes on bottoming, gender, and kink 101s . She knows a bit of rope and can be found poking sadists at munches and events in the greater Boston-ish area.
Intersections of Gender and Kink
There are a lot of uninformed, and at times, silly questions people want to ask about gender, a *whole* lot. What better way to clear things up than by asking you, the audience, some equally useless questions? This class will cover the basics of gender, sex, and expression while posing tough questions like “Should I bring my flogger to the office?” and “Are you a top or a bottom?”
Hopefully by the end of the class you’ll better understand what might be important to your partners, how gender can fit in your toy box, and how get on to the fun parts without sticking your foot in your mouth.
Rope by Number -or- Rope 101 you can remember
Are you new to rope or have taken a 101 but forgotten everything the minute you walked out the door? Well then, have I got the class for you. I’ll go over the basic parts of rope, such as wrist ties and chest/leg harnesses in a way that is much easier to remember.
What to bring: Rope! at least one 30′ length is fine but two is better.
