Feeling Powerful When Feeling Powerless: Guilt, Shame, Nervousness & Embarrassment When Exploring Your Sexuality & the Community
Presented by Queen Ana Algos
So you discovered you might be kinky…now what? Society and media has shown us a false representation of how a kinkster should behave when it comes to sex and expressing one’s sexuality.

Queen Ana’s goal for this class is to help people feel powerful and intelligent while being kinky and sexy.

Just Beat It: Flogging Techniques
Presented by Shane
Flogging is a a type of impact play in the BDSM/kink scene which involves one partner using a flexible many-tailed striking tool on their partner for sensual enjoyment.
Flogging in the scene can be used for erotic punishment or reward, and range from sensual to sadistic. It’s also fairly easy to explore with a new partner, and can be used as a prelude to sex or other types of play.
This class will cover all the basics you will need to know to be able to give and receive a hot flogging scene with your partner for private and public enjoyment. As a top you will gain more knowledge and confidence, and as a bottom, you will learn how to position your body, as you enjoy the experience of giving up control.
We will discuss safe striking zones, techniques, style and flow, as well as sensory awareness, negotiation and aftercare. This class is a combination of practical instruction followed by practice, and an opportunity to share your skills.
Bring a flogger if you have one; if you are planning to buy one, we can provide resources.
No previous experience is required. All levels are welcome.

Hot & Healthy Erotic Humiliation
Presented by Sunny Megatron
Are you into humiliation play? Curious about it? Do you wonder why some people enjoy being embarrassed, shamed, and degraded? Many steer clear of humiliation because it seems so extreme and emotionally cruel. While some people are into that style of play, humiliation can also take on many other forms.
In this workshop, Sunny Megatron deconstructs the physiological elements of erotic humiliation with the goal of helping you figure out what flavor gets your juices flowing. You’ll learn how to: negotiate this kind of play, gauge intensity levels ranging from playful embarrassment to hard-core degradation, keep the focus on emotional safety, build humiliation scenes with positive outcomes in mind, inject humor into your emotional play, and more. You will also receive a humiliation play mini-workbook plus a general BDSM scene negotiation mini-workbook to use with partners or for self-analysis.
