This class is for pony players new and old. Ponyboys Rusty and Stormy are switching roles from demo ponies to instructors for this demonstration of basic pony handling techniques. If you can handle a slave, you can handle a pony. It’s just a matter of communication and nerve. Topics covered will include safety, setting the scene, basic handling techniques, roles to play, handler/pony communication and – of course – grooming. Come watch and then give it a try. You can’t screw this up and you might have a lot of fun!
Risk aware consent lets us ethically and responsibly indulge in our darkest fantasies, but getting there isn’t always easy. From both the bottom and the top perspective, what should you ask or tell to help your partner fully understand what you want to do, and where your limits are? What do you need to disclose in order to ensure that your partner’s consent is adequately informed? Come discuss the complexities of negotiating scene limits, develop skills for communicating your needs your own needs, and learn tips for helping your partner(s) communicate theirs.
Ever wanted to get involved in the kink community but don’t know where to start? Shy and overwhelmed? Curious about the types of events and get togethers out there in the land of pervyness? Every event is different, and you deserve to find one that fits you. We’ll look into why folks want to be part of the community (and how that affects your adventure), some of the myths you’ll encounter along the way (from outsiders and kinksters alike), the pitfalls we may encounter, and have fun along the way. So pull out your social graces, dust off those leather boots (or heels, or sandals), and let’s dive into this foray into kink events and culture.
New to BDSM, its culture, its events? Confused by social cues, customs, and unspoken rules? Come join us for a workshop on how to mix, mingle, and socialize without faux pas and (unnecessary) pain. The goal is to help you interact without offending, minimize drama, and preserve both dignity and respect of all involved. Meant to be interactive, speculation and questions welcome & encouraged!!
“Everyone knows” that submissives are the masochists and dominants are the sadists, right? Well, that’s not always so. There are those of us who don’t fit within those tightly defined roles quite so well. This is a workshop dedicated to exploring the differences in those roles, and how to navigate being outside of the “normal” roles.
Let’s take a journey into one of the sexiest aspects of power relationships and its exploration. In this class we dive deep into the traditions of formal dinner service. We will discuss how to create a menu, how to plan a meal service, and perhaps most importantly, how to set the expectations for both sides of the relationship slash. There will also be the opportunity to practice some of the practical skills of dinner service such as gracefully placing and removing a plate.
Ahh, the mystique of fisting. From sweetly erotic to scarily humiliating and everything in between, fisting is one of the most intimate SM or sexual acts (at least, in the opinion of the presenter!). Regardless of which hole you’re interested in, you’ll learn the ins and outs of fisting, and explore some of the ways to use it in a scene or just for some good ol’ fashioned fun!
Will this be your first BDSM event? Are you new to the dungeon or play party circuit? Just want to try something and be able to ask questions of an experienced player? Consider coming to the BDSM Taster on Friday night at the Winter Flea! We’ll have a great selection of ‘stations’ where you can try out things from our ‘tasting menu’ including rope bondage, spanking, canes, sensation play and more. You will be able to meet new people, learn basic etiquette for playing around others and explore and experience new things from either the giving or the receiving end (or both)! Come check out our “tasting menu” of stations. Our station hosts are there to answer questions and give you a “taste” from their menu, either as the top, bottom, or both. This is a no pressure event; feel free to observe, ask questions, try one thing or many. Please note this is not a play party, but a ‘taster’ for short learning experiences only. Last entrance to the Taster at 8:15 Hosted by Danie AKA LionessinDC
Are you curios about, or just getting started with, erotic hypnosis? This overview gives you a broad view of what erotic hypnosis is about: what it is, how it’s used, and how an erotic hypnosis scene is structured and executed. Geared toward both the hypnotist and the hypnotee (subject). Includes a demonstration scene with an audience volunteer.
Platforms, stilettos, ballet boots, corsets and more. How to decide what to buy, how to wear it and sometimes, how to walk in it. Why can one pair of 6 inch heels be so much easier to walk in than another pair? What’s the difference between different styles of corsets and which one is best for you? What’s the best way to lace a corset? Comparisons, demonstrations, and hacks to make life more comfortable will be provided. Have a wardrobe piece you are having a problem with? Bring it with you and let’s see what options we can figure out.
Coined over half a century ago by psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich, the term “sex positive” still inspires confusion and fear. What does sex-positive mean and, perhaps more importantly, what does it mean to be sex positive? This class will discuss the definition of the term “sex-positive,” the history of the sex-positive movement, and how we apply the principles of sex positivity to our daily lives.
Are you someone who likes taking orders and doesn’t like making big decisions … but likes sadistic play? Let’s talk about the fun of “middling” – being a voice-controlled instrument of torture, where the top gets to sit on the couch, eat popcorn, and give the orders while you willingly do their horrendous bidding to the hapless captive, treating the top to their favorite live porn? Taught by a Master/slave couple who are both sadists, this class may spice up your poly play.
It’s a straight world out there. What effect does it have on our identities as queer people when we are in situations where the people around us make assumptions about our sexuality orientation or gender identity. Does it matter how the world outside our doors perceives us, or can we go through life knowing who we are without that external validation? In this workshop we will commiserate, discuss and strategize ways to live, work and play in a our broader communities, while still staying true to ourselves and maintaining the crucial balance between being out and getting ourselves in trouble.
Whether you already have a cock attached to your body or not, strap-on sex can give you some amazing options that you might not have thought about! We’ll go over how to choose a strap on, finding your perfect cock(s) for the task at hand, and give you techniques for face fucking, anal pleasuring, vaginal plundering, and wearing your cock with pride. Please bring (or wear!) your strap-on for show and tell and troubleshooting!
Do you crave D/s relationships? Do you want to improve your current M/s relationship and understand your partner better? How do we create successful and fulfilling D/s and M/s relationships? How do we find the best match and avoid disaster and broken hearts? What goes into creating effective protocols? To answer these questions, first we must have a solid foundation and understanding of our own desires and D/s goals of our partners. Long before protocols, contracts, expectations, and collars come out, there’s important work to be done. It’s worth it! This unique interactive class is designed to help D/s – M/s individuals, leather families as well as the curious to discover and discuss their own relationship archetypes. We’ll begin to diagram the expectations, boundaries, goals, and priorities for your current and future relationships. Through this class you’ll gather information necessary in creating effective protocols and the details of daily interactions. Individuals, couples, and multi-member relationships are all welcome. Be prepared to do some creative and hard work at the start to help reduce heartaches down the road! Open to all experience level, genders, and orientation.
We had so much fun presenting a panel on the 50th anniversary of the Fetish Flea that we decided to do it again! Learn about the history of the Flea, the people, places and adventures experienced by those who were there for the first one back in 1993. We’ll be answering such burning questions as “how much has the scene changed with the Flea?” “where did the most exciting Flea take place – other than this one this weekend?” and all sorts of other topics that pop up during this always historic panel. Join us!
