Bottoming by jumping into the deep end: Being prepared, and responding when it goes wrong

Do you find yourself agreeing to—or suggesting–scenes and then describing them as “potentially a really bad idea”? Do you cheerfully say “I’m up for whatever you want!” to the scary sadists you play with? Do you find yourself flummoxed in the beginning stages of negotiation, but able to react and correct course over time?

Me too! Come learn from what I’ve done right, and what I’ve done wrong!

This class will talk about ways to negotiate that differ from those taught in BDSM 101, and will include discussion about risk profiles, using your words (gasp), and setting intentions. We will talk about when course correction is appropriate, and how this can be done without breaking the mood.

And finally, we will talk about what to do when things go wrong—when you misjudge the risks, or your own emotional state, or your top’s skills, or any one of a million things. This includes discussions about personal responsibility, consent violations, generosity, trust, expectations, and learning from experience.

This class can be heavily influenced by the specific interests of those attending, so please bring sticky situations to discuss! TW: This class will discuss trauma, triggers, and responding to consent violations. It will also definitely discuss play that is a bad idea.

Igniting Passion: Fire Play

Igniting Passion is a fire play class that teaches you how not to get burned. You will learn the tools of the trade, how to safely execute a scene, some “hot” techniques, and get some firsthand accounts from experienced fire tops and bottoms. We also include Electric fire and how to roast s’mores over a bottom.  So you leave your scene partner rare-ing to go, and not well done. Fire and electricity can be triggers.

Wax On Wax Off

Do you ever find yourself dripping wax on your fingers after putting a candle out? Have you ever made a mold of your fingers with wax? Have you ever wondered what other body parts you could make molds out of or drip wax on? If you answered yes to any of those questions you are not alone. We want to show you how to take that further and explore the wonderful world of wax play. The feeling of wax dripping on your skin can be very unique and fun if done properly. It can be a relaxing and sensual experience for the top and the bottom or a painful one (in a good way) if both desire it. For tips on getting started, types of wax play, what candles to use, how to safely apply wax, wax removal (knife, fingers, whipping, etc.), predicament wax and wax drawing plus much more. You are just a few easy steps from being overwhelmed by waves of pleasurable endorphins and reaching unique erotic highs with your partner… (there will be open flame, temperature play and knives which are potential triggers)
