50 Shades of What?!? Beginning D/s and Bedroom Kink presented by Stefanos and Shay
Thurs, August 14, 2014 at 7:30pm PST

This class is really about that most basic of all kinky (or general relationship) skills- communication! Stefanos & Shay will introduce tools to help you communicate, both verbally and non-verbally, within the framework of getting started with exploring a common erotic fantasy- power exchange.

They will include concrete tips to help you add a little spice, playfulness, fantasy, and mental connection to your sex lives. Undressing, kissing, dirty talk, and foreplay- all the sexy things you already do can be slightly adjusted to fit into bedroom dominance.

After introducing the idea of playing with power exchange and discussing using safewords to enhance your play, they will show some specific techniques to get you started (including kissing, hair pulling, verbalization, and using teeth and nails for maximum effect), and finish it off with a detailed demonstration of reading and using body language in this context.

$30/$50 Couples


It’s Not All About Pain presented by January Frost
Weds, Aug. 20, 2014 at 7:00pm PST

When you think about spanking or paddling, is your first thought how painful that must be? It doesn’t have to be. Playing with impact is playing with skin sensation. It can be as fun as playing any sport and as stress-releasing as getting any massage.

If all goes well, nobody gets hurt. Your objective should be optimizing sensation without overwhelming the nerve endings. This objective can be obtained by being aware of your toys and observing the body. Because it’s all fun and games…period.

You will learn:
-how to play without pain
-how to take more than you thought you could
$30/$50 couples

Outfits and Talking: Adventures in Role-Play presented by Siouxsie Q
Weds, September 17, 2014 at 7:00pm PST

Playing a role during sex can unlock the imagination and take your kinky or vanilla encounters to new heights. Our bodies have limitations, but our imaginations are limitless. Role-play is about so much more than sexy costumes and cheesy props—it’s one of the foundational elements of many types of kinky play. But role-play can be intimidating to try for the first time.

How do you avoid feeling silly? How do you know the right thing to say to add to the scene? Sex worker and actor/playwright, Siouxsie Q, will be your guide into the realm of role-playing adventures and take you on a journey to give yourself permission to play on the edge of sexual imagination.

This class includes:
-Skills for taking the plunge: how to start and design a role-play scene.
-Creative ways to engage in role-play that doesn’t necessarily require any costumes or props.
-Introduction to different classic role-play dynamics: Master/slave, Teacher/student, Daddy/girl or boy, Mommy/girl or boy, animal role-play, and medical play.
-Skills for honing your own creative brand of role-play.
-Tools to navigate edge play: consensual non-consent, dark age play, and other taboo fantasies.
-Techniques for after care—because role-play can end up being intense!
-Live demo with Sam Solo of GirlBullies.net — a site that features non-traditional role-play fantasies.
