Lee Harrington teaches Negotiating Well With Others and Yourself from 3-5pm PDT. Fetlife Facebook Meetup At every turn, erotic adventurers are encouraged to know their needs and limits, express them to partners, and negotiate! negotiate! negotiate! It is common to feel overwhelmed and uncertain how or where to begin, what to bring up or what to focus on even for the most extroverted pervert. Let's take an opportunity to use negotiation as foreplay, self-exploration, and a road map to our most intimate fantasies, and then come back to developing our skills for negotiating with others, whether for play or within relationships. There are so many approaches to negotiation we can take! Remember, negotiation is a practice and takes practice like Kung Fu for the erotic explorer. New, experienced, shy, outgoing, top, or bottom; everyone can benefit from negotiating! Advanced ticketing required through Brown Paper Tickets.

James Gordon and Rebecca Doll teach Hypnotic Conditioning and Orgasm Control from 5-7pm PDT. Fetlife Facebook Meetup Since the first inklings of "animal magnetism" in the 1700s, hypnosis has been fuel for fantasies of powerful outside control, bonds stronger than those of iron because they exist inside the mind itself. And what could be more powerful than the involuntary control of our most intimate function, orgasm? In a consensual relationship, with partner "buy in," Hypnosis can help create powerful bonds that transcend apparent physical limitations and reinforce classic conditioning. Hypnotic conditioning can control or strongly facilitate orgasm in all body types. In relationships where physical and emotional control is a desire of both partners, hypnosis can be a valuable tool. In this two hour session, we'll go over the techniques and give practical demonstrations of methods we've found to be effective in establishing this sort of control with a partner. Advanced ticketing required through Brown Paper Tickets.

In this workshop, we will discuss earnest navigation of the intersections of identity that exist in our community, how to create accessible spaces for all folks, and appropriate approaches to situations we've all faced. Join us and learn practical tools that are applicable both in and outside of the world of kink. Advanced ticketing required through Brown Paper Tickets.

Klawdya teaches Yoga for Bondage and Sex from 12-2pm PDT. Fetlife FacebookMeetup Yoga is a natural practice for both bondage and sex because it's all about opening the body up, learning balance, and getting in touch with ourselves. Flexibility, stamina, mental clarity, increased strength, balance, and stress release are all benefits of cultivating a yoga practice and can help set the stage for intimacy and deeper play. By directing our mental and physical energy through different parts of our body we can help unlock sticky areas keeping us from enjoying our physical play, and we may uncover emotional blocks that have been manifesting physically as well. In this class we will do several sequences, some geared towards warm-up and aftercare, and some for specific goals such as balance, spine flexibility, and hip opening. All poses are optional, and alternatives for comfort, physical barriers, and all experience levels are offered as well-- no stress, just flow where you are today. This is a safe space to get in touch with our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual selves through guided poses designed to open us to our personal intentions-- come comfortable, in clothing ready to move, bring a mat, a towel or small blanket, and a water bottle. This class is presented from a humanistic standpoint and is not geared towards any religious or spiritual practice, and is welcoming to persons of all faiths and beliefs. Advanced ticketing required through Brown Paper Tickets.
