A Curious Productions presents the 7th Annual Fetish Fashion Show.

Trigger Point MassageMovement1hr 30minBlackstone

Often in the course of a massage a client will say "OMG that hurts so good." This is from treating a trigger point in one of their muscles. What are trigger points? How do they manifest in the muscles of the body? What is ischemic compression? Those questions will be answered and various techniques that can be used to provide pain relief and/or therapeutic torture for your partner will be discussed. This will be a hands-on class. It is helpful if you bring a partner to practice on. The hands-on portion does not require any nudity but it is recommended to wear a thin t-shirt so your partner can feel for trigger points.


It's OK to Hit Them : So Long as They are into That Sort of ThingCommunication1hr 30minSouth County

In this class we will discuss how to get in touch with your inner masochist/sadist, whether you top, bottom, switch, or just scratch your head. Why do we like to do the things we do, and how can that be OK? We examine the journey of making conscious choices to selectively forget socialization, and to find the place where it's OK to be a good person and still want to do these types of things; how to figure out self identification and make it work in a social group, and ultimately to reach your own inner peace, or at least self-fulfillment, in BDSM, rope, and kink.


Headspace ConceptsCommunication1hr 30minRest. Annex

That Ain't Necessarily So: Lies, Exaggerations and Silly Shit You Keep Hearing in the Scene.Communication1hr 30minSouth County

A true dominant will never bottom. We're all safe, sane and consensual. Kinky people are smarter & more creative. Safewords are necessary. Verbs are nouns. There are no rules. There are rules.

How many times have you heard people state, with authority and assurance, something that sounds absolute and yet maybe a little fishy? How many times have you passed on a fact or truth or rule that you secretly question, or realized much later that you had been misinformed? For a scene supposedly based on open and honest communication (hah!) we tell each other and sometimes ourselves a lot of things that ain't necessarily so. Whether you are new and soaking it up like a sponge or an old hand and ready to speak truth to kink, come on in for a look at some of the top deceptions, inventions, and whoppers we pass around!

Then this class will cover skills and techniques for getting the most out of your mouth as a sex organ: After all, variety is the spice of life.

Intro to Rough Body PlayImpact1hr 30minNaragansett A

Do you like the idea of smacking your partner and the intimacy of body-on-body contact? Do you long to be beaten with just your Top's own flesh? Does the closeness and raw animal energy of rough body play excite you? Are you excited right now, after just having read that?

If so, then this class is for you.

This class is an intro and overview class on rough body play: punching, smacking, kicking, and all things body-on-body. We'll talk about safety, where you can hit, where you should stay away from, and cover some basic techniques. We'll talk about how you can begin to explore this visceral and raw form of play safely (and without requiring medical care later), including pacing, judging a bottom's head space, and some unexpected things to watch out for.


Backdoor Antics: Practicals of Anal SexGeneral Skills1hr 30minNaragansett B

Bonding & Spirituality in D/sPower and Authority Exchange1hr 30minNaragansett C

Why do we do D/s and M/s? Is it all about play and service, or is there something significantly more intangible at hand?

We will explore the deeper motivations that drive the dynamic of M/s relationships. How do protocols and rituals strengthen the bonds? What are the roles that transparency, truthfulness, and responsibility take in our expressions of intimacy? What core values of control and power do we share to confirm our identity as dominant and submissive, or Master and slave? And is this all about spirituality, or is it just a "game" we play? We will discover the foundations of the principles at work and discuss how to incorporate them into our lifestyle relationships.

Emotional EdgeplayRole Play1hr 30minRest. Annex

Why do people play with real fear, humiliation, and even (gasp!) anger in scenes? Is it therapeutic, or just really hot? Tops may wonder how to make things real enough while still making the bottom feel safe; bottoms may wonder what actually is safe. We'll delve into the depths of these controversial practices, which many more people are playing with than they'll ever admit.

Mention SAMs or brats in the scene, and you'll get either glees or groans, depending on your tolerance for antagonistic scenes and your level of formal dominance & submission.

Balloon Bondage: (A Terribly Serious Class)Humor1hr 30minNaragansett C

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 playfully binding your bottom.

This is a hands-on class about using long twisting balloons for bondage. We will 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 is hilarious, by the time you are done your bottom can be completely immobilized. Learn how to bind, tickle, and torture.

If we have time you'll also learn how to make one of those little balloon doggies.


Spanking From Mild to WildImpact1hr 30minRest. Annex

Spankings are most people's first introduction to kink. Many of those first attempts fail to elicit the desired response from a partner. This is partly due to inexperience by both parties. This workshop will cover a brief history of spanking, an introduction to the physiology of spanking from the nerves to the chemical reactions in the brain, and then move into a discussion of body parts, techniques, roles, and positions. We will end with a discussion of some of the extremes possible for the seriously sadistic spankoes and masochistic spankees. There will be opportunities for participants to practice, ask questions, and receive feedback and guidance.

Mapping Your D/s ArchetypePower and Authority Exchange1hr 30minBlackstone

Do you crave D/s relationships? Do you want to improve your current M/s relationship and understand your partner better? How do we create successful and fulfilling D/s and M/s relationships? How do we find the best match and avoid disaster and broken hearts? What goes into creating effective protocols?

To answer these questions, first we must have a solid foundation and understanding of our own desires and D/s goals of our partners. Long before protocols, contracts, expectations, and collars come out, there's important work to be done. It's worth it!

This unique interactive class is designed to help D/s - M/s individuals, leather families as well as the curious to discover and discuss their own relationship archetypes. We'll begin to diagram the expectations, boundaries, goals, and priorities for your current and future relationships.

Through this class you'll gather information necessary in creating effective protocols and the details of daily interactions. Individuals, couples, and multi-member relationships are all welcome. Be prepared to do some creative and hard work at the start to help reduce heartaches down the road! Open to all experience level, genders, and orientation.

Asking For it: Negotiation Practices : Get What You Want And Get it GoodCommunication1hr 30minBlackstone

We all know that one of the basic starting points for play in our world is negotiation... but is it just a basic necessity to play, like bread and water are to dining?

In this class we'll discuss negotiation, from foundations (why it's important, what the starting points to cover are), to more advanced techniques. What is the difference between flirting and negotiation, and when do they overlap? How can you make negotiation into a form of foreplay? And how do you stay focused while doing these and not lose sight of what you need to accomplish - where is the responsible part in the play?

Come learn, think, flirt, and get some fun dirty ideas as we explore how to bring fun and proficiency to these important bedrock principles.

We will explore the application of intention, bondage, teasing and denial, positioning, vulnerability and more to the acts of cunnilingus, fellatio, irrumatio (throat fucking), rimming, and toe sucking. This class is bent, so no matter what your gender or orientation, you are included.

Giving and Accepting ServicePower and Authority Exchange1hr 30minNaragansett A

Many kinksters love the idea of service but struggle to make it work. That's not surprising - giving and accepting service requires a different toolset than sensation-based S/M or power-based D/s. This workshop helps tops receive service gracefully and bottoms who wish to offer service. It includes models for service relationships and specific techniques for defining and nurturing your service dynamic.


Anatomy of a Scene: Preparation, Construction and ExecutionRole Play1hr 30minNaragansett B

Play scenes can be long or short. They can be gentle or rough. They can be physical, incorporating elements of bondage, impact, pain, edge play; or they can be entirely physiological, involving just you and your play partner's minds. Yes, play scenes can be just about anything your creativity can come up with, making each one a dynamic and unique experience.

Using a series of shorter play scenes we show you how to prepare, build and structure fun and dynamic play scenes. From both the top and the bottom's perspective, we address preparation such as safety, negotiation and intention setting; scene structure and execution ... from how to open/close and how to perform aftercare ... to creativity, improvisation, and organic play.
