“__ism” Isn’t Dead

Too often the media and society imply that we live and love in a post-racial, post-sexist society where all enjoy equal access to opportunity. While this is the goal we are all working towards, we still have a long way to go. Beyond the larger societal issues that we all agree are bad, there are many small ways in which folks experience slights and discrimination on a daily basis, even in safe spaces like our conventions and events.

Join us for a provocative discussion on the ways that isms still exist, and how to respond to make the world, or at least our conventions and our leather community a safer and happier place.

The class will be half lecture-based and half-discussion based with the chance for interactive activities and demos.

ASMR (Gesundheit!)

Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response AKA “braingasms” is a sensation often described as a tingling feeling in the back of one’s head or neck (but not always there). Sounds or concepts such as scalp massages, bubblewrap (don’t deny it!), trickling water, Bob Ross or doctor’s examinations often get this pleasing reaction. Come to this interactive workshop to learn more about this neurological quirk!

Balancing Act

limitsunleashed_mainLiving the lifestyle requires balancing the demands of real life and the desires within the relationship. There are
always competing demands on our time, resources, attention, and focus. This discussion will look at ways to
think about our roles, dynamics, and competing priorities and help resolve conflicts between them.

Key points include:

  • Accepting the now – appreciation of thought is mostly false or distorted
  • Creative perspective – everything is possible, although not necessarily probable
  • Fluidity and adaptability – staying flexible with intent versus plans
  • Principles and prioritization – keeping what matters most in sight
  • Excellence versus Perfection – forgiving of self or others by being realistic

We’ve all had the paranoid notion that the creaking noise coming from downstairs was not “just the pipes” but a maniac with a hatchet. Through Hypnosis, we can take advantage of that feeling and have some fun with it. If that description didn’t scare you away (see what I did there) join D’artagnan in learning how to set up the most frightening possible scene with your partner(s). Through a series of demos, Q&A sessions, and open discussion we’ll go over the best way to scare the daylights out of someone while staying risk aware enough to make sure no one’s scared off for good.

Hypnosis, Doll, and Android Play

dartagnanHypnosis, Doll, and Android Play (Do Subjects Dream of Spiral Sheep)

Have you ever wanted to get deeper into your doll or living machine head-space? Does rewiring the brain for service, or creating that wonderful “ball and socket” feeling in your limbs really turn you on (like a machine, get it… I’m so sorry)? Do you want to see what it would be like to have a realistic robot butler, and happen to have a consenting and interested partner lying around? If so this may be the class for you. In this “please try this at home” style presentation, D’artagnan goes over some of the Hypnotic tips and tricks for finding your ideal doll (android, robot, golem, seriously have fun with it) head-space. Come out not only with some fun kinky ideas, but a greater understanding of how creative you can get with hypnosis. We’ll go over everything from the mental to the physical and give you the tools you need for the most enriching possible scenes.


D’artagnan is a New York based Hypnotist, producer of hypnotic (often horror based) audio recordings and a co-coordinator of TES’s Hypnosis group. For the last few years, he has dedicated an inordinate amount of time to developing experimental skills and techniques for kinksters like yourselves. Deeply (no pun intended) dedicated to developing his own skills and the skills of people in the hypno-kink community, D’artagnan is always looking for creative, strange ways to make use of hypnotic trance.

Impact and D/s

​Fate’s arrow, when expected, travels slow.
Dante Alighieri

This workshop will look at principles of impact play in general, and combine them with concepts in using impact for D/s purposes.

Do you need to be a heavy masochist to achieve D/s states while receiving a beating? How might the mental and physical interact in ways which create stronger intellectual and emotional responses? What’s the intellectual value in smacking someone around? What sorts of social and cultural forces can affect and enhance our play? Can we address mind-body duality in ways which leave awesome bruises?

Intersections of Gender & 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 silly 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 with the floggers, and how get on to the fun parts without sticking your foot in your mouth.

dartagnanLet’s Get Medieval, a Simple Guide to Hypnotic Torture

Racks and shackles and iron maidens oh my! How cool would it be to turn an unassuming room or play space into a full on torture chamber?

Join D’artagnan for a discussion and series of demos on how to maim and torture (in all the most fun consensual ways of course) someone with the power of suggestion.

​​Living an “Out” Poly Life​

wintertashlin

What does it mean to be “out” as poly? How do we decide, singly and as part of poly families what our level of openness in the broader world should be, and how do we go about following through on that choice?

Join me while we discuss the the pros and cons of openness, from letting a few friends know you’re poly, to showing the tellers at the bank pictures of your poly family or going way out like like my family when we had our poly hand-fasting filmed for national television.

And when you’ve done all that, how do you then explain about the complexities of dissolving poly relationships if it comes to it…

Making the Connection

Why is it so hard to meet people? Whether you are looking for a play partner for the evening or a partner for life, it can be difficult to make a connection. Why can some people play as much as they want at an event like GKE, while others watch from the sidelines? It’s not about how you look. It’s about what you do. In this workshop, we will discuss techniques, strategies and mindsets to find a partner and create a connection, but we will do so with a constant awareness that our potential partners are *people* to be treated with respect and honesty at all times. This is not a workshop for pickup artists. It is for good, honest people looking to have a safe, sane, consensual time with other good people.

relationship and dynamic while balancing the reality of our resources, emotional state, and the difficulties is

wintertashlin

We can’t all be perfect specimens of physical and mental health. In fact, many of us are in some way for lack of a better word, broken. This may pre-date our being sexually active, or it could be more a recent development. It can take many different forms and can affect our lives, and yes our sex lives in a wide variety of ways.

Let’s get together and discuss issues such as: how does one explore safe play within our limitations, how do we find satisfying substitutions for favored activities that may now have become off limits, how do we talk to an erotic partner about our boundaries without freaking them out, and how can we incorporate our disability into our play in positive and healthy ways?
