Flirting 101: Dropping the Hint, Not the Ball! with Andre Shakti

Sadly, in today’s “how-to” age, there are more contradictory and harmful myths about flirting floating around out there than there is practical advice. “Don’t fuck on the first date!” “Play hard to get!” “Don’t talk about past relationships!” “Wear something flattering, but not too conservative or revealing!” Hardly ever do the instructions given account for diversity in sexual orientation, gender identity, or relationship style, let alone personal preference! Join performer, educator, and professional flirt Roma Mafia as she identifies the self-imposed “roadblocks” that make flirting difficult and works with your individual personality style to maximize your success without losing sight of who you are and what you REALLY want!

Andre graduated cum laude from Towson University in Maryland with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology and LGBT Studies in 2010. She worked in HIV risk assessment, harm reduction education, and community activism in Baltimore from 2008-2011, studied at San Francisco State University’s National Sexuality Resource Center (NSRC) in 2010, and graduated from San Francisco Sex Information (SFSI)’s Sex Educator Training in Fall 2013.

High Protocol Events: It’s Easier than you Think with Mistress Zeneca

Serve with grace. Receive service with gratitude. Sometimes referred to as “The Art of Attentiveness”, High Protocol is submissive service without pain. It is a demonstration of the discipline to obey; a set of guidelines to display respect, etiquette, and courtesy. This is a fun and light-hearted class! Let Mistress Zeneca show you that High Protocol can be welcoming, fun, AND stress-free. What’s the point of doing something if you’re not having any fun? Mistress Zeneca invites you to learn High Protocol without snobbery or stuffiness.

This class is based on the High Protocol Party Manual by Mistress Zeneca and relates to performing High Protocol for short periods of time during events. This is NOT about incorporating High Protocol into your personal D/s dynamics. Instead, this class will focus on everything you need to know about serving or being served at a High Protocol Event hosted by Mistress Zeneca. The fundamentals that you learn in this class may relate directly to any special event in which the proper forms of etiquette are appreciated.

Covered in this class are the Slave Positions, The Transitions, The Slave Walk, Serving Protocols, along with overviews of the SLAVE LINE, Partnering Ritual, How to Ask for Service, How to Offer Service, and typical party timing of events.

Since the publishing of the High Protocol Party Manual by Mistress Zeneca in 2010, kinksters around the world have been using it as the basis for their High Protocol gatherings. Offered completely for free, the manual has proved to be a useful guidebook that provides a standardized way of hosting successful High Protocol events. The manual has been used for parties in Melbourne, India, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Las Vegas, Boston, and Canada to name just a few. Copies of the manual will be given to each participant in this class. Learn more at: http://www.ElegantlyKinky.com/

Whether a human comes to it as a slave Pony or a pony in horse role-play, Pony Play involves bondage, discipline, dominance, submission, and sadomasochism. While both may look the same to the casual observer, there is a huge difference in the headspace between the Trainer and the human Pony.
