Kinky Survivors Powerful Intersections of IdentitySun 10:00 AM1hr 30min518

Even for people versed in the fetish community, sexual violence histories can be a hard topic to broach. I want to create a place where survivors and their allies can talk about the ways in which their sexual assault histories and their histories of sexual violence intersect, and what shape their lives presently. Some discussion points: BDSM as a practice of ritualized consent--can be healing for folks who have had breached boundaries. How do you [the panelist, the audience] reclaim your body? What do we want our allies to know? What do our allies and partners want to know? A mindfulness of focusing the conversation on healthy sexual choices (IE consensual) and away from graphic trauma.

Anne Reynolds(m)

Example cases are drawn to relate to interests of the contemporary BDSM community. The class addresses the risks and potential implications of "applying" or importing strategies from torture settings into BDSM contexts.

Shy Freaks: Exploring BDSM for the IntrovertSat 5:00 PM1hr 30minSouth County

If the thought of BDSM action gets you hot and bothered but the thought of dropping you in the middle of a dungeon full of fellow kinksters leaves you cold and queasy, you just might be a shy freak! It is often overlooked than not every kinkster shares exhibitionism as their kink; this class explores finding your own boundaries, and will offer some tools for self-assessment. Some shyness is important for self-esteem and some are hindrances to the same so, how do you know if you should push your shyness or let it sit? What do you do if your partner is a flaming show-off and you like nothing more than a quiet scene at home? How can you overcome what YOU want to overcome without succumbing to potentially damaging scene pressure? All of these questions and more will be explored in a friendly, lively and interactive format.

The Defining Moment : Getting What You Want Out of KinkSat 10:30 AM1hr 30minNaragansett B

This class is a practical step by step guide to fully realizing your kinky self. Starting from fantasy, Graydancer takes you through a process that gets you to that defining moment, the ineffable feeling of fulfillment when that fantasy is made real. Along the way you will also learn tools of risk-management, figuring out what aftercare is needed, and answering the most important question; How can we do that again? Whether you're into rope, leather, chains, or fuzzy bunny suits, the Defining Moment can offer you tools to take your play to a more visceral level from a place of internal motivation. What do you want to DO? Rather than start with what you saw in a picture or book, let's focus on the results you want. Whether you want to play for sex, for pretty, for pain or some combination the focus will be on how to DO what you want to do using principles rather than step-by-step processes. It's an interactive class with plenty of class participation and demonstrations. The skill level of this class is appropriate for anyone from the rank beginner to advanced because it focuses on practical skills and principles-based instruction.

Beating in TonguesSun 10:00 AM1hr 30minNaragansett B

BratsSat 2:00 PM1hr 30min418

Bratplay is often mistaken as manipulation of a scene or a top by a bottom. To the contrary, brat play is about giving a bottom enough incentive, setting up the circumstances of their defeat, and then watching the fun. This kind of play can bring a different creative energy and dynamic into playtime. This class will help clear up some of the myths about brats, explore different ways of bringing this dynamic into a scene while maintaining the correct balance of power, and show the differences between being a bratty bottom and "just a brat". If you've ever been called a brat, if you think you'd never want to play with one, or you're lucky enough to have one of your very own, this class will help shed a light on this misunderstood and often misnamed type of roleplay.

Race: The Final Frontier.Sun 11:30 AM1hr 30minNaragansett B

Even the most hardcore Pervert will back away from the topic of Race Play. The idea of playing into stereotypes, slurs, scenes that recall grotesque horrors from some of the darkest moments of human history is, in many folk's opinions, best left buried un-addressed. But ... For those who are drawn to explore deeper and deeper crevasses of our psyche, the desire to explore even that taboo a play style can be compelling. From the man of Jewish descent who wishes to experience domination at the hands of a partner in SS Regalia, to the African American woman who secretly harbors a fantasy of being forced to submit to "the white man" to a Japanese-American who ponders a recreation scene of an WWII internment camp, these desires are not to be closeted in shame, but explored and discussed. Even if you are not desirous of acting, real time, on these fantasies, taking charge of them and letting go of the guilt can be n amazing release. And, if you DO decide to act on these fantasies, you'll get some tips on how to approach this very edgy play, what to do if things do not fall out as planned, and the pros and cons of doing these scenes in public venues. Expect the unexpected, and prepare to surprise yourself.
