BISEXUALITY: WHO’S ON FIRST? WHO’S ON NEXT?

There are those — and we are among them — who believe that sexuality is not about boxes but about a bell curve. We all range along that curve, being more het sometimes, more bi others throughout our lives — even over the course of a week! This seminar is about our own constantly evolving choices in our sexuality — and it explores the bisexuality options available to us all… We can use up to 5 male & female audience volunteers; you in?

BLOOD, STEEL & SEX

Like sex? Like blood sports… say, needles & knives? Similar to chocolate & raspberries, one of the great combinations in life is blood & sex. We’re gonna find out how a body carved with blades and poked full of needles reacts when it’s jigglin’ & rockin’ with full-on fucking. The dual sinsations of steel penetration and foreplay, carving and cunnilingus, blow jobs & blades will set up the demo-bleeders for a spectacular cumclusion. When breasts or balls full of needles bounce to the rhythm of rough sex & pounding penetration, the effect on BOTH fuckee and fucker are awesome! Bring your steel and a willing perforee and sing along; let’s call it “Carv-e-o-kee”! (PDF) (Master Malicia)

In appropriate venues, there can be smashed-ball/needled sack demos and audience participation. (Master Malicia)

CIGARS IN LEATHER; MYSTIQUE, CAMARADERIE, SEX & POWER

Cigars are a significant component of our Leather culture and history; they’re seldom given proper emphasis with a comprehensive seminar. This wide-ranging look at the world of cigars will intrigue both seasoned smokers and curious newbies. We’ll delve into the history of cigars in general, why cigars are a popular and key part of the Leather mystique, and how cigar play can be an integral part of play — including edge play — and intensely sexual. You need not be a cigar smoker to do cigar play! (Master JLubeJack)

CONFLICT RESOLUTION: FIGHTING BRUSHFIRES IN RELATIONSHIPS

No poly family is without conflict.  If not addressed promptly and appropriately, conflict can damage, or even destroy, a poly family.  In this seminar, we will learn about a simple 5-step process for putting out the brushfires of poly life before they get out of control.  We will practice the technique with trigger videos of common problems. (PDF) (slave robin)

CONTRACTS AND NON-24/7 M/s

Class time 60-90 minutes. Powerpoint presentation and handouts for this class are available. (Ms Texas)

DARK AGEPLAY

The age play headspace doesn’t always stop at security and nurturing, teddy bears and juice boxes. Some littles/age players regress specifically for the transgressive sex, or to bottom in heavy scenes, both physical and psychological. In this session, we’ll review childhood’s unique weaknesses, fears, and humiliations, and how to use them for play with partners who want or need it like that. Note: for those who already find age play a little disturbing, this session goes into what’s disturbing to us. Also, clowns. (Brett)

DUNGEON FURNITURE: CONSTRUCTION FOR KLUTZES

How to make anything you’ve seen in the scene with a few tools, boards, screws & glue. Spanking bench? Easy. X-Cross? No problem. Suspension table? Piece of cake.

EMOTIONAL UNAVAILABILITY — HOW TO SAVE YOUR TIME,  HEART & MIND!

This half- or full-day seminar is based on the book by the same name. It will help you avoid those people who simply cannot form an emotional bond with anyone.

EROTIC PLAY: ADDING MAGIC TO THE MAYHEM

Often, we seem to forget to add eroticism — and yes, SEX — to our play. This seminar explores the endless variety of techniques for adding sensuous magic to scenes. The yin/yang of pain and intimate pleasure will cook up to-die-for scenes they will not soon forget! This is a hands-on tour with demos and class participation… We can use up to 5 male & female audience volunteers; you in? Write to us! (Master Malicia)

ETHICAL SLUTTERY

We’re all raised to be good girls… sometimes that means that our true nature — our inner hungers — get trampled by outside influences. This red-hot, bare-breasted seminar is about new ways of thinking about good… and bad. Malicia and her lover maya tell of their own escapes from societal baggage and how you, too, can chose to lead a wide-open sexual life.  (Het & GLBTs!)  We can use up to 5 male & female audience volunteers; you in?

FEMINIZATION & CROSS DRESSING

Male to Female Image Transformation Program. Forced Fem is taboo in society, as is cross dressing.

FROM TOP TO DOM

We achieve comfort in dominance once we’re comfortable being authentically ourselves. If you want to begin exercising authority over others in both play and in life, let’s run through some of the pitfalls, patterns, and winning moves. (Brett)

GEEZER BDSM

Just because you’re on Social Security doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun with BDSM!  Ask us: we know from personal experience!  Join us for this light-hearted journey through the world of BDSM for the Senior set! (slave robin)

GOING TOO FAR: WHEN MARS & VENUS COLLIDE

Guys/women/tops: have you ever “gone too far,” in play or in sex, and found out later that it wasn’t appreciated? Women/guys/bottoms: when he/she “went too far,” have you ever bit your tongue so as not to spoil the moment?  Was this an issue, or is it just a normal part of life in the scene? This isn’t about blame, but  about avoiding mistakes by understanding each other’s desires and finding common ground on which to communicate! Whether you’re interested in a long term relationship or negotiating with play partner, you don’t want to miss this discussion! (slave robin)

INTRO TO AGE PLAY

Have you been curious about the world of dolls, coloring, juiceboxes, babysitters, and maybe (shocking!) diapers? Do you identify as a little or middle, or want to play with someone who does? Wondering what do to with occasional mommy- or daddy-impulses, or want to incorporate more guidance and nurturing into your dynamic, even without kid stuff? Age play is a world of many diverse roles and approaches: come see where you might get something out of it, or what you might have to give. (Brett)

INTRO TO LEATHER

For non-leather and leather groups alike, seeking a direct, clear explanation of what leather is. After participating in the national leather community for several years now, witnessing its ongoing dialogues and debates, its history, pageantry, and play, and now having become a member of a leather house, Brett has found the answers to the questions he had when he began, and can share them! If you’re curious about what leather is, or want to confirm your impressions, Brett can take those questions and cover leather basics, spanning communities of yesterday and today.

LEATHER: WHAT IT WAS, WHAT IT IS, AND THE POLITICS OF CHANGE

There is a renewed interest in learning about the Leather lifestyle – and, perhaps, in adopting it. This creates unnecessary friction between elders and newsters. This seminar will examine the birth, evolution, and codification of protocols… and look at ways in which the old can integrate with the new to create a meaningful New Leather for our future. (DOCX) (Master JLubeJack)

LIFE IN A LEATHER FAMILY: IT AIN’T ALL ROSES!

There is a renewed interest in learning about the Leather lifestyle – and, perhaps, in adopting it. Wanting to live it and actually living it are two different things though! This seminar looks at the real-world, day-to-day joys and pitfalls we’ve encountered as a Leather Family… as well as examples from many other Leather Families we’ve known, mentored, and aligned with… By the end of this seminar, you’ll have lots to chew on — and be better prepared to deal with both the bumps and incredible highs of Leather life! (Master JLubeJack, Master Malicia, slave robin)

MASSIVE EDGE PLAY

How do you put the shock & awe of their very first scene back into the jaded hearts of long-time subs? You smash them with massive edge play – a scene with multiple Tops all doing edge techniques simultaneously, no matter how many scenes they’ve been through, no matter how hard they’ve become, these techinques will put that sub into massive sensory overload! Because they don’t know what’s coming next from which Top, there is no way for them to yawn THESE scenes away! (PDF) (Master Malicia with Master JLubeJack)

MASTERFUL MINDFUCKING: A COOKBOOK AND…

Mindfucks are a delicious addition to your toybag! However, many people often short-change mindfucking to a single “trick” in a certain scene. This seminar/discussion means to turn your mindfuckery into a dynamic, constant frame of mind; a sadistic lifetime religion if you will! We’ll look at how to detect a bottom’s weaknesses, how to concoct a “sting” on-the-fly, then how to ride that wave of terror with extensions of your original plan as you play off their reactions. From simple to complex, I’ll include examples of elaborate mindfucks involving months of planning, abandoned warehouses… and off-duty cops. When you leave this class you’ll have the knowledge to become a world class terror! (Master JLubeJack)

MEDICAL AGEPLAY

Class Description: For medical staff of all kinds, Age Players (“littles”) make the ideal patients: trusting, easily frightened, and will go through a lot for a lollipop. Let’s discuss manipulative dialogue, co-topping strategies, specialized equipment, and, above all, how to abuse your role’s authority, for fetish satisfaction, emotional sadism, role reinforcement, behavior modification, or for the fun of it. (Brett)

MEDICAL STAPLES

Medical staplers are a self-contained, convenient way to do insert temporary piercings. Although they make ideal anchoring points for decorative element, staples also lend themselves to some creative and powerful to consider for your s/m and headspace repertoire. (Brett)

NEEDLE PLAY 101 – PLAY PIERCING

This class is about BASIC temporary surface piercing. Explaining materials, safety, and technique. This is a beginner class and we do not suggest you leave the presentation thinking you can just go start poking someone – a mentor is a good idea to further knowledge. This class is just the basics. After the class you can determine if you want to pursue this fetish further. Class time 60-90 minutes. Powerpoint presentation and handouts for this class are available. (Ms Texas)

NEEDLE PLAY 201 – PLAY PIERCING

More advanced class for those who have been piercing and are ready to take that next step. We will focus more on technique – safety and history will also be a part of the class.

PLAY PIERCING: THE HOLEY GRAIL

Poke your honey and she’ll love ya! This technique can flip your bottom into sub-space faster and deeper than just about anything out there. With proper technique, you can make it so the bottom only feels the first one or two needles… and then soars off into NaNa Land (or not, if you’re feeling evil). We’ll learn good, safe techniques for surface AND plunge piercings, how to use pretties like feathers and jewels, and more… All attending can have a hand in working with a sub, so you’ll take home real skills, knowledge and confidence! (Master Malicia with Master JLubeJack)

POLYAMORY — GOOD, BAD & BETTER!

Polyamory is hard work! Any relationship has is ups, downs and sideways, so imagine what those are all like multiplied by three, four — or more! Still, there is magic in that pile of people and WE think it’s worth the effort and time to make it work. You’ll hear about our relationships and about dozens of other poly families we’ve talked with through the years. Where ever we give this talk there are heartfelt discussions, terrific questions and lots of ideas! (Master JLubeJack, Master Malicia, & slave robin)

PUMPING: PLUMPING PRECIOUS ON HIMS & HERS

Get good at this sport… and it will swell your head (or your boobs, or your clitoris, or your cock, or your sack, or — even — your nether port! Pumping is one technique that anyone can master with only a little practice and the results can be spectacular! We’ll show you how to use air pump kits as well as flash cotton & bells. Fast, fun and wonderful for Tops and bottoms, you’ll walk away full of confidence and ideas! (PDF1, PDF2) (Master Malicia)

PUMPS & MILKING

Pumps aren’t just for extracting milk: they increase sensation. You can sensitize the body for play or even permanently enlarge some body parts with basic equipment. In this presentation, we’ll cover standard cylinders, specialty nipple devices, consumer breast pumps, and an industrial goat milker, and discuss how they can be used for play and for long-term mental and physical conditioning. (Brett)

PUNISHMENT VS. PLAY; THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS

Who hasn’t heard a cute subbie utter the words, “Oh, punish me please, Sir”?  As hot as that may sound in a scene, where’s the line between consequences and rewards?  This class will focus on distinguishing between the psychological distinctions… and some physical manifestations as well. Words count, and there is no cookie-cutter approach with every bottom! This discussion is very hot now as groups discuss BDSM and domestic violence… LOTS of fodder for bottoms & Tops to ponder in this session. (Master JLubeJack)

PUSSY TORTURE: INS & OUTS

Center of a HOLE lot of fun, the pussy is pretty, alluring, seductive… and tasty! Long a center of attraction for hims AND hers, this seminar will show you how to tease and torture this garden of eden! From mild to wild, loving to bloody, we’ll look at techniques to bring a pussy to mind-blowing delights. Many techniques, combined with a variety of plunging sensations will elicit screams… screams of pain AND screams of pleasure. Bring a pussy with you and join in the culminating group play at the end of the session! (PDF) (Master Malicia)

ROPE FOR PEOPLE WHO HATE ROPE

Rope just “not do it for you”? Me, either! But, people do it for me, and turning them on is generally to my benefit! This class is all about smoothing over places where beginners fumble, and then making practical, simple ties hot, so that you’re confident in making rope a hot foreplay option or an effective getting-to-know-you scene. We’ll take the focus off knots and look at ways to add eroticism to single-column, double-column, and chest harness ties, and then finish with an impressive (but easy) rope dress. (Brett)

SERVICE — BEYOND EXPECTATIONS

This seminar is about the why of service, submission and slavery — not the how.  Great service comes not from mastering protocols, but from mastering yourself.  Serving your dominant well requires both of you to understand why you want to serve, and what you both expect from service.  This seminar gives submissives your own voice,  as you answer core questions such as, “Why do I want to serve?”,  “What do I expect from my service?”,  “What is my ideal dominant like?”,  “How do I/we define service?”,  “Must I/we love, to submit?”  For dominants, it’s a good opportunity to understand your submissive and to compare your beliefs with those of submissives. (slave robin)

SEX IN THE DUNGEON; BRINGING THE HOT SAUCE BACK!

Back when black rooms teemed with gay men, the dungeon screamed with sex, it smelled of sweaty hot bodies, and the power was unmistakable! These days, even simple eroticism is rare in our dungeon play spaces. What the Fuck? No, “Where’s the Fuck?” This seminar & discussion aims to list the all the excuses for the timid, then will help banish them to the trash bin. We’ll look at an endless variety of techniques for adding sensuous magic — and fucking — to scenes. The yin/yang of pain and intimate pleasure will cook up to-die-for scenes they will not soon forget! This is a hands-on tour with demos and class participation for hets as well as GLBTs… We can use up to 5 male & female audience volunteers; you in? Write to us! (PDF) (Master Malicia)

SHARP & SHINY; KNIFE PLAY ON THE EDGE

There is a primal fear of blades… cold, hard, sharp — and dangerous, they never fail to elicit wide eyes and quick pulses in subs. This seminar will cover basic and exotic blade design and construction, and then we’ll look at different ways to use edges in the scene. From scratching to blood-letting, you’ll see and learn dozens of techniques for safe but heart-throbbing dungeon experiences… (PDF) (Master Malicia)

SOUNDS: SLIPPING STEEL INTO THEIR WEE PEE HOLES

Playing with sounds — in women and IN men — is considered by most to “fall” into the outer side of edge play; for sure it can be dangerous if you don’t know how to do it correctly! In this seminar, you’ll learn the, ahem, ins & outs of sounds, various materials for plumbing their depths, and most important, how to do it all safely! We’ll have plenty of demos on men and women to watch, and the brave among you can try sounds IN for “size” during class! Further, at the play parties, we’ll be available to coach you in topping sounds… (Master Malicia)

STRUCTURE: AGE PLAY & D/s

As a Little, have you craved greater accountability, or the satisfaction of being helpful? As a Big, have you felt encroaching burn-out, or an inability to set expectations? For everyone, there can be dissonance between negotiating and conducting a D/s relationship and a headspace that isn’t primarily about service and responsibility. Let’s address reconciling D/s and age play dynamics with positive frames and goal-setting and accountability approaches. (Brett)

SWITCHES: TOPS & BOTTOMS STRADDLING THE FENCE

Switches STILL tweak the “You haveta be in a box” folk. They want you to be one or the other — and will assign you to one box OR the other ‘cause they think you’re “going through a phase” or are “too new to know what you are” I have a word for that kind of thinking… BULLSHIT! Many of us like to dabble on both sides of that great divide. Some, like me, rarely bottom while others flip back and forth like a trout on a rock. Either way is fine as long as it’s good for you! We’ll look at the origins of this trait and talk about ways to play Top AND bottom in a community that’s upset by your luck! This seminar ALWAYS generates great discussion, so bring both of your sides and weigh in! (Master Malicia)

SUBMISSION: HIT OR MYTH?

What do you know about how play, submission and slavery should work? Are you sure?  What do you know, that just ain’t so?  Whether you are sub or dom(me), new to BDSM or experienced, you can use this lively interactive discussion to challenge your beliefs about the principles of BDSM, and decide which are misconceptions, and which aren’t as simple as you think.  We’ll look at statements you’ve probably seen (or said!) online or in the dungeon, and decide for yourself which is a hit, and which is a myth. (slave robin)

SYBIANS – HOPE ON FOR THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE!

Ever wondered what the hoopla was about the Sybians? After going through some safety instructions we will do an open presentation and a hands on demonstration. We welcome new comers to the Sybian as well as those that are well versed! Class time 60-90 minutes. Powerpoint presentation and handouts for this class are available. (Ms Texas)

TEA & TEASE: LEARNING THE ART OF KINKY TEA SERVICE

In honor of Ms. Margaret of the San Francisco area, we will be discussing proper tea service. After taking the class, you should be able to host a tea party and put the D/s tease into the party, in the comfort of your own home!  This class is for all those interested in tea service for yourself or your Dominant. We will be teaching kinky tea party planning and production, some history, recommended resources, tools, and tips to help you host your own tea party. We offer a small tea service if time permits. Class time 60-90 minutes. Powerpoint presentation and handouts for this class are available. (Ms Texas)

THE FOUR AGREEMENTS – MASTERY OF YOURSELF

A relationship and self-worth building workshop. We look at the Four Agreements listed below and how it works in the day to day life of Masters and slaves, for mastery of yourself and of your household. This class is good for both the Top, bottom, or anywhere in between. Class time 60-90 minutes. Powerpoint presentation and handouts for this class are available.
Agreement Number 1 – Be impeccable with your word; Agreement Number 2 – Don’t take what others say personally; Agreement Number 3 – Don’t make assumptions; Agreement Number 4 – Always do your best. (Ms Texas)

THUNDER IN THE DUNGEON; TOPS PLAYING WITH TOPS

In our “community” one of the unspoken rules is that Tops don’t bottom to other Tops. You’ll hear a subbie say, “Oh My GAWD! I would just die if my Top bottomed to anyone!” People that is total bullshit! Tops CAN play with other Tops in a myriad of ways that have nothing to do with their submitting to another Top. In fact, some of the most electrifying moments we’ve ever witnessed in a dungeon involve two Tops doing an intricate tango! Besides a no-holds-barred discussion, there will be live demos with a variety of Bad-Ass Tops going at it with Bad-Ass Tops; this seminar should shake the trees of Tops & bottoms alike! (PDF) (Master Malicia with Master JLubeJack)
