2017 Workshops

What is BDSM and why is it so fucking fun!?!?! What is a Dominant? A submissive? What does BDSM stand for anyway? Get the basics on BDSM and kink in this lecture and discussion class.

Introductory class on bondage fun, do’s and don’t

A demonstration of various tools and techniques you can use to whack someone and they enjoy it.

If you identify as a Caregiver, a little, or are just curious about this kink dynamic, come and share your experiences with how you found your role and what it means to you

It’s show and tell time! Bring your toys, your suspension rigs, and your curiosity. This is where campers show off what they got and learn what they haven’t yet played with.

Flogging can be an excellent warm up or an entire scene. They are one of the most basic tools and are often the first purchase a new kinkster makes. This class is designed to teach the basics of techniques, differences in flogger materials and effects, safety tips and the power and energy exchange available to a top and bottom during a scene.

Denial or overload? Which do you think they should have? (By popular demand 😀 )

What you find in your local thrift, kitchen, hardware or big box store can produce all kinds of fun!

Discusses how different media portray relationships, violence (with examples) and how people are influenced by music, books, movies and television. It addresses both polyamory and monogamy. I prefer opening with the presentation and letting it evolve into round table because I know that though my ideas are good, there are people who probably have better ones. Discussion topics include: violence, degradation of women in music using lyrics from popular songs, domestic violence and abuse, portrayals of books in film (Disney’s Quasimodo is a good example), 50 Shades, and in general, how media affects the way people perceive and judge things.

You know you can romantically love only one, or maybe you can love many. But have you ever wondered why? Join us for a moderated discussion on how a person’s personality may interplay with how we are raised to create the the vision of intimate fulfillment we all seek.

Introduction with plenty of time for Q&A

Long distance polyamory. It’s full of pratfalls and joys.

More than 20 years ago, the psychologist Arthur Aron succeeded in making two strangers fall in love in his laboratory. He used only two simple techniques: one to establish trust and emotional intimacy between the strangers, and another to help the strangers fearlessly set aside their everyday persona masks and engage on a deeper level. These methods have been replicated in lab studies numerous times, and typically lead to the two participants falling in love with each other. In this workshop, Soror Ariadne will introduce you to these exercises and discuss the brain chemistry and psychology behind their effectiveness. For those who are willing, she will also lead you through Dr. Aron’s two techniques with a consenting partner of your choice. Come and deepen the love that you already share with a partner, learn about how love works in the brain, or maybe fall in love with a stranger!

Sex advice columnist Dan Savage coined the abbreviation term Good, Giving, and Game. The idea behind it is that an ideal partner should strive to be Good in bed, Giving “equal time and equal pleasure” to one’s partner, and Game “for anything—within reason”. In this lecture and discussion Soror Ariadne will guide you through the labyrinth of discussing consent, fantasies, hard limits, and in-play communication with your partner(s).
