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.

Introduction to Pony Play Class with Mistress Zeneca and featuring Pony Play Author SubMissAnn

Pony Play is a form of BDSM, fetishism, and role-playing. It can be done as an individual, with a team, or as a social event. As a Pony, one creates a Pony identity and plays. 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.

Training for Rope: Sustaining the Rope High with Dr. Lynk

Rope bottoms, do you get frustrated with your lack of tolerance for staying bound or suspended? Riggers, do you feel pressure to complete a tie before your bottom fatigues out? Rope can be awesome to play with in the scene, but many times it is dependent on the tolerance of the person being tied or suspended. This class’s goal is to assist people in finding ways beyond repetitive bondage and suspension to increase bondage and suspension flight time. This class utilizes knowledge of anatomy, exercise, and body mechanics to improve the tie duration. This class is primarily geared toward the rope bottom, but riggers can learn how to modify their suspensions through body position and manual technique to keep your art a little longer and keep them coming back for more. Come join Dr. Lynk for a creative combination of science and rope.

Flogging 101 with WiseProtector

Learn the basics of flogging! Topics include:

  • Why Do I Flog Thee?…and why am I nekkid in front of all these people?
Motivation and understanding from top to bottom.
  • Connection: That’s the real secret.
  • Safety Third! (Only because it’s the third thing we’ll be covering.)
  • Boredom and The Art of Flogging: When it looks really boring, it might be sublime. REALLY understanding what’s going on.
  • How to Hit
You: Probably thought this was the most important part.
Here’s enough to get to effective flogging.
  • What’s Spinach Got to Do With It?
Double flogging and what I learned from a total green newbie to BDSM.
There’s more than just how to double flog. Learning from others.

Starting in the late 70′s before the interweb, before knowing anybody actually does this sort of thing, Wise had to seduce girlfriends into BDSM. The cornerstone of that seduction is knowing what each other really needs, and fulfilling that need. This approach has been called, “clever,” “psychological,” “somehow unfair,” and even, “dangerously persuasive,” but Wise explains,
“All I do is lead people where they want to go, because I’m lazy, and because it works.”
That’s the focus of most of his workshops: find out what you both really need and how you need to get it. Then lead them there. That’s how he gets pretty much whatever he wants.

Carter Steven’s Pocono Fall Fetish Fling (in 1998?) was his first foray into the public scene where Joe and candi taught him what they know about flogging. After learning from lots of people, he’s given workshops at the York Play Group, Brimstone, The first NDDS bootcamp and The Warehouse.

Wise is married to (not surprisingly) MrsWise, where they live in a surprisingly bucolic suburb North of Philadelphia. He hosts the nearby  BDSM of SEPA Social in Bensalem, PA. Wise finds it moderately disturbing to write about himself in the third person.

ATTENTION: Unfortunately, this class had to be canceled due to lack of enrollment, but Saturday evening’s class with Ducky Doolittle will still be happening.

Often survivors are thriving despite their emotional or physical scars. But common obstacles many survivors face are sex and relationship issues. Join Ducky Doolittle, herself a survivor and a Sexual Assault & Violence Intervention Counselor, as we explore ways of growing beyond the trauma.

A lot of people are survivors and maybe you want to join us too? If you have experienced violence, sexual assault or abuse, then you are a survivor. Or maybe an accident, injury, illness, surgery, or PTSD? It could be a childhood experience or something that happened as an adult. It may have been ongoing or a one-time thing. It may have been at the hands of someone you knew casually, someone who was supposed to love you the most or perhaps it was a stranger.

Partners and allies of survivors are also very welcome to join us for this is a face forward, joyful class where Ducky explains some of the hard science behind the survivor brain. You’ll learn how to navigate emotions and help your partners better understand, trust and play well with you.

Knife Play: Sharp, Shiny, and Oh So Much Fun with Dr. Lynk

From sensual to sadistic, knives can become one of the essentials inside your toy bag. The close contact and primal nature of knives allows for almost an extension of yourself to the other person within a scene. Whether you are going for lighter sensation play, extreme intensity, or the ever-favorite mind fuck, knives are versatile tools for every player. Knife selection, cleaning, safety, and creative play will be discussed with plenty of time to experience and experiment with the myriad of possibilities that knives offer.

Dr. Lynk is a creatively entertaining sadist with fetishes for knives, the workings of the human body, maintaining constant motion when teaching a class, and being the community human repairman. His classes are derived from his work and training as a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). You can expect his classes to include a twist of pain (ok, maybe a little more than a twist), a dash of random facts, and a ton of information. Do not be alarmed if he takes off his shirt for no apparent reason or uses a variety of audience members and random objects as props during class. This is just how he operates. Dr. Lynk hopes that you will not only be entertained by his presentations and antics but will also come away with a great deal of knowledge. Of course, he would have never found the scene or started presenting without the influence of his incredible life partner, Ever.

Fitness, Body Love, and Sexercise with Timaree

Everybody needs regular exercise to be healthy and feel great in their bodies. For folks who have ever felt uncomfortable in their own skin, getting your gym on might seem less than fun. We’re also flooded with images of what bodies are “good enough” and “sexy” and worth loving, but short on ways to find real body love.  Discovering a fun fitness and wellness routine that works for you can mean finding that fulfilling mind-body connection and a healthier body image.
Learn about the fundamentals of exercise science (from cardiovascular endurance, strength, toning, and flexibility) and how to design a workout that you’ll love. If you love it, you’ll stick to it, so that you can move towards your goals. And whatever those goals may be, we’ll keep the emphasis on loving your body for what it does for you, not just its appearance.  We’ll also go over the interaction between fitness/wellness and sexuality and discuss what kinds of exercises can improve your sexual experience, including increased stamina, improved flexibility and a greater diversity of pleasurable positions. It’s all about the love in this workout!

Sexologist Timaree Schmit earned a Ph.D. in Human Sexuality Education from Widener University, the culmination of a lifelong search for rational, sex-positive, empirically-based knowledge about sexuality. She now works as an adjunct professor, guest lecturer, and consultant.

As a youngster she read voraciously about sexuality and became the Go-To sage for friends and acquaintances who had sex questions.  This hobby eventually translated into becoming a certified HIV Prevention Counselor, PersUNL Peer Sex Educator and Adjunct Professor in Human Sexuality. Her foray into the world of sex writing started in 2003 as a weekly columnist for the Daily Nebraskan and has continued as sex writer for the Barbershop Notebooks , Philly Gay Calendar and East Coast Adult News.

Sex with Timaree podcasts cover a range of topics and feature amazing, entertaining guests whose lives and professions touch on sexuality. And was named one of the Top Five Noteworthy Sexuality Podcasts on iTunes.

Gender Exploration: Getting Below the Skin with Screw Smart

ATTENTION: Unfortunately, this evening’s class had to be canceled due to low enrollment, but please be on the look out for more classes with ScrewSmart in the near future!

Gender and sex are often confused with one another. This confusion is reinforced by a world that concretely says pink is only for girls and blue is only for boys. That’s why we’re carving out two-hours to suspend the concrete and let gender fluidity flow where it may! Using interactive games and conversations, we will challenge classic gender measurement tools, explore the ways our gendered selves get built, and consider the ways we *want* to perform gender. Why talk about this stuff? Because the more we examine ourselves today, the truer we may be to ourselves tomorrow. This workshop is designed for everyone from those who have never questioned their gender to those who enjoy skipping through the ever-changing gender dandelion field.

ScrewSmart is a sex education collaborative formed to promote both individual and community sexual heath and satisfaction. Based in Philadelphia, it was founded in 2009 by three sex positive queer women who met while working towards human sexuality education masters.

The Anatomy of Play Scenes: Preparation, Construction and Execution with Eric Pride

Play scenes can be long or short. They can be gentle or rough. They can be physical, incorporating elements of bondage, impact, pain, edge play; or they can be entirely physiological, involving just you and your play partner’s minds. Yes, play scenes can be just about anything your creativity can come up with, making each one a dynamic and unique experience. Using a series of shorter play scenes we show you how to prepare, build and structure fun and dynamic play scenes. From both the top and the bottom’s perspective, we address preparation such as safety, negotiation and intention setting; scene structure and execution – from how to open/close and how to perform aftercare – to creativity, improvisation and organic play.

Tying It All Together: Connecting Through Rope Bondage with Eric Pride

There are lots of great rope bondage classes out there teaching all sorts of fancy and beautiful ties, intricate knots, daunting suspension scenes, and detailed techniques. This isn’t one of them. Instead in this class, we explore rope bondage as a medium for dynamic scenes, play, and connection. We teach a few simple ties and basic bondage safety to serve as the foundation for building scenarios ranging from the playful and sensual to the strict and severe. We discuss and demonstrate how to use bondage for intimacy and sex, bondage for power-play, bondage for secret public thrills, bondage for fun role play, and bondage for decadent teasing and torture. At the heart of it all, it is about creating that special connection and sexy energy with your partners and using the inherent contrast in restraint to set your imaginations and passions free.

Note: We encourage you to bring your own rope for hands-on exploration (four pieces of rope, each approximately 25-35 foot long). This class is interactive and suitable for all experience levels

Beyond Fifty Shades of Grey: The Pleasure of Writing Erotica with Olivia Glass

If you’ve read erotica—or even a sexy scene in a novel—you know the charge that can come from the written word. But how do you find the inspiration for erotic writing—and what can you do to set it apart from everything else that’s already out there? You’ll learn how to write orgasms and pen dirty talk while avoiding common pitfalls. Whether you want a naughty story to share with your partner, or you have goals of publication, this class will jump-start your juices, creative and otherwise.

Olivia Glass is the author of Five Stages of Grief (Fleshbot Fiction, 2013). Her work has also appeared in Filament Magazine, Bend Over Magazine, The Paris Review Daily, and Best Women’s Erotica 2012, from Cleis Press.

Beyond the Basic Rubdown with Dr. Lynk

Thousands of people perform massage with and without training in a variety of settings. The BDSM scene is one place where massage can be taken to a variety of levels beyond the vanilla world’s. If you’re looking for a class that will describe different types of massage, this class is not for you. The objectives of this class are to educate you about how to perform effective massage without experiencing too much stress or fatigue and how to give the greatest benefit to the lucky recipient of your massage. Body mechanics; proper use of hands, elbows, and forearms; and important focus areas to reap the greatest benefits from massage will be discussed. When you leave this class, you will be able to give longer and more frequent massages that have people begging for more, and who doesn’t like begging?

Dr. Lynk is a creatively entertaining sadist with fetishes for knives, the workings of the human body, maintaining constant motion when teaching a class, and being the community human repairman. His classes are derived from his work and training as a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). You can expect his classes to include a twist of pain (ok, maybe a little more than a twist), a dash of random facts, and a ton of information. Do not be alarmed if he takes off his shirt for no apparent reason or uses a variety of audience members and random objects as props during class. This is just how he operates. Dr. Lynk hopes that you will not only be entertained by his presentations and antics but will also come away with a great deal of knowledge. Of course, he would have never found the scene or started presenting without the influence of his incredible life partner, Ever.
