Thank you for your interest in the Advanced Classes Track for FFF #54! We are excited to bring you a lineup of top educators, with classes geared towards those who are more advanced and experienced in their kink journey.
Please only fill out this form if you will attend FFF #54. The intent is to fill the classes pre-convention, with at-convention attendance only available if there are free seats 15 minutes before the class’ scheduled start time.
Here is how the process will work this year:
- First, you will need to provide us with your scene name and email address. Please use the name with which you will use during the event. We’ll check you in to the class with this name.
- Second, please read the list of class offerings and choose your top two (2) class choices. During your decision making process, be cognizant of which classes occur at the same time.

Those topics include but are not limited to: alternative toys and accessories with the wand, scene building for psychological tension and/or predicament play, the use of conductive rope in Shibari techniques, fire play (how-to, how to be safe, how to follow up), the incorporation of other medical play (needles and staples) with the wand, conductive impact, and more.

Advanced Needle Play
Presented By: Sarah Sloane
Prerequisite: basic understanding of blood borne pathogen transmission & anatomy
Once we know the basics of needle play, how can we add additional “zing” to our needle play scenes? This workshop will give you some ideas for turning an average scene into something truly unique and wicked! We will cover some techniques and ideas for intermediate and advanced needle play scenes, the anatomy knowledge needed to safely perform these scenes, and demonstrate some of the techniques for you during the workshop. You’ll come away from the workshop with ideas to use in future scenes and the knowledge you need in order to let your creativity run wild!
Content Warning: This class will contain videos of temporary piercing, including genitals, and may show blood.
The Sadist Butcher: Anatomically-Based Fear Play
Presented By: Raven Kaldera
Want to pretend that your bottom is livestock, or a hunted deer, and it’s time to get the knives? Or maybe you just like the idea of playing Hannibal Lechter? This can be an intense edge play scene if it’s done right, even though no one actually gets cut up for real. But you have to know, convincingly, where to “cut” – and these three homesteading kinksters will show you how to look like you know what you’re doing, and safely give someone a scene of fear and surrender.
Content Warning: We’ll discuss graphic dismemberment, fairly bluntly; know yourself and your level of ability to listen to such talk.
2:00 PM Saturday
Presented By: Lord Ramirez
There is a very powerful link between fear and arousal. To those so inclined one can harness the power of this link within their scenes.During this workshop we will cover concepts, tools and tricks to taking your scenes into the world of nightmares and monsters, both real and fantasy and how to use these to enhance your play.
Content Warning: This class will have potential fear/emotional triggers and is not recommended for those who might be triggered easily.
