logo

"For nearly four years and many quarrels, my partner and I have connected with love. A thousand times we argue and then nine hundred and ninety nine times we make up.

It’s a Trap! Playful Scenes & Non-Bondage Predicaments


Presented by Stefanos & Shay

logo

This isn’t always serious work we do! Predicaments are all about putting your bottom between the proverbial “rock and hard place” (and laughing as they are flummoxed by their situation);

Read More

playful BDSM is about giggling together in scene and making your bottom participate in their own torment. This class will show you how to bring a new level of engagement to your BDSM play and go beyond giving and receiving sensations – create story lines and connect mentally with your partner. Watch the gears turn as your bottom puzzles through difficult predicaments; engage and consume their mind as they struggle to please you; delight as you make them giggle through their pain. In addition to demonstrating and leading you through many specific predicaments and “games”, Stefanos & Shay will discuss this type of play in a broad sense to guide you in developing your own unique scenes.

Asymmetrical Bondage: Beauty in Chaos


Presented by Boss Bondage

logo

As nice good well respecting bondage citizens, most of us have spent a lot of time in pursuit of nice clean symmetrical bondage. Most of us find it very pleasing to the eye to see nice even bondage work that we have done. Well now it's time to throw all that out the window.

Read More

This class is about letting go of all our notions concerning bondage and start throwing rope among chaos. We will cover some ties that take us down the dark dirty path towards asymmetrical bondage. More than just covering ties though, we will be trying to make up some new ones.
This is the class where you get to really cut loose, experiment and come up with something new and exciting. This class has no requirement on what rope you should bring other than some 4mm & 6mm hemp, in whatever lengths you have would be good, because we will be using it.

Coming Out Kinky


Presented by Roughinamorato

logo

A lot of kinky folk lead a double life of sorts: a public and professional life with our family, friends, and coworkers, and a secret life cloaked in shadows.

Read More

But we're not superheroes with secret identities - we're kinky people. There's a commonly held belief among us kinky folk that to come out of the kinky closet would mean ruin, to careers, to families, to custodial situations, and more. And to make matters more complicated: even if you decided you wanted to, just how on earth do you come out as "kinky?" This class does not advocate coming out, or staying secret; it is a discussion that looks at some of the issues surrounding coming out, including risks, meaning, what it means to come out, and some ideas of how to do it, for those wrestling with the question of whether this is something they really want to change in their lives.

Switching: Having your cake and eating it too?


Presented by Mietta Rouge


The world, even the often open minded kink world, loves labels. Top, bottom, Dominant, submissive, Switch, Permissive Top, etc. Language abounds.

Read More

A "switch," on the surface seems like such a simple term: someone who plays, in BDSM, on either side of the spectrums, such as Dominant/submissive or Top/bottom. However, like many things, there are an infinite number of permutations. The journey and personalization of switching can be complicated and at times difficult, but also extremely satisfying. When self identified on one spectrum, it can be difficult to know how to explore the opposite side. Switching can also be a way to explore new experiences and also gain deeper understanding in your "other role."

Balloon Bondage (a terribly serious class)


Presented by Roughinamorato


This class is entirely silly. Who says bondage has to be all sombre and romantic? Come see how to use balloons to have colorful fun binding playfully with your bottom.

Read More

This is a hands-on class about using long twisting balloons for bondage. We discuss how to inflate them, and the differences between rubber and rope. Joins and direction changes are handled in very different ways, and some classic rope ties can be adapted into balloon use. Safety is addressed (rubber keeps constricting!). And while it’s hilarious, by the time you’re done the bottom can be completely immobilized. Learn how to bind, tickle, and torture. If we have time we'll all learn how to make one of those little balloon doggies. Please note: there is a materials cost to this class. I bring enough balloons so that everyone in the class who wants to participate has the opportunity to do so, and the cost of balloons needs to be factored in when selecting this class.

Advanced Protocol: Bondage of the Mind and Soul


Presented by Thraje

logo

Developing Values-Based Protocol to Deepen and Enhance Your Dynamic. Committing to the exploration of D/s is a fantastic starting point...

Read More

but deepening your D/s and making it more persistent becomes the real journey. Protocol is often touted as one of the most effective tools for deepening D/s and bonding a submissive to their Dominant. However, it can take years to journey from intro D/s to intro protocol to various longstanding protocols – social, military, diplomatic, “Old Guard BDSM” – to advanced protocol that is optimized for your mission and values. Thraje will facilitate this workshop using an adapted methodology (from Robert Greene’s MASTERY) to accelerate attendees into advanced values-based protocol, featuring insights, research and modern tools from over a decade of study. This workshop will serve as a deep dive into the more complex aspects of protocol in BDSM: Construct of advanced personal BDSM protocol, structuring protocol for individuals or multi-party dynamics (play partners, poly, families, houses), communication and discipline, managing clashing protocol in houses and community, and common community protocol for gatherings and parties.

Rope Torture as Spiritual Cleansing


Presented by Boss Bondage

logo

As players in the scene all of us know that pain can purify the body and the mind. It can lead to catharsis and it can be most definitely provide transcendence.

Read More

Some might even say it can help you see God. The application of pain to the body opens up the mind through a process of cleansing and purification, and it can confirm that you are, indeed, alive. To test ones self and allow yourself to be broken and then put back together can bring about true self awareness. In this class Boss Bondage will share his personal journey of self discovery and hopefully start you on the path of your own. This is a class for those who seek a closeness with and recognition of that true God within each of us.
