Looking Your Best: A Guide to Photography for Models
with Mistress Zeneca

**BUY TICKETS HERE**

Think you can’t take a good picture? Think again. The size of your body doesn’t matter. Photography is the capture of light and time. As such, learning about how light reflects off of your body will help you look better in the lens. This class will focus on pin-up posing in particular, but the tips and tricks will apply to any photo you may take. This is a hands-on class and is limited to 15 people. Pretend you are heading to a photo shoot and wear something you want pictures of yourself in. Come prepared to get in front of camera to discover the right pin-up poses that work well for you. Start training your eye! See yourself how the camera sees you, and learn how to change what the camera captures. Each student will be able to walk away from the class with an arsenal of information on how to emphasize the positives, and minimize everything else.

Mistress Zeneca is an East Coast transplant from Southern California, publicly Dominant for over 10 years. She is a Geeky, BDSM and Kink event organizer in the Philadelphia area, specializing in providing unique kink experiences.

Friday, May 6th, 7:30-9pm – Queer Open Relationship/Polyamorous Discussion Group

This Discussion Group – facilitated by Lenore Jefford, LPC and Lisa Kaye, CMT – is designed for anyone who identifies as Queer (for our purposes Gay, Lesbian, Bi or Trans) who is interested in or currently in an Open relationship or Poly configuration. We created this discussion forum specifically for Queer folks (GLBTQI) as a safe space to learn more about Open relationships and/or Poly living. The Open Relationship or Poly meet-ups and events in Philadelphia are mostly heteronormative and, although, not unwelcoming or exclusive, seem to miss or misunderstand the specific needs of Queer identified folks. We hope to facilitate questions and create an open arena for discussion so folks considering this lifestyle may benefit from the experience of those currently living it. Likewise, we hope this discussion group may provide a community of like minded folks to support and encourage one another in this unique journey. Admission is donation-based

Lenore Jefford is a Licensed Professional Counselor in private practice in Mt. Airy for the last 9 years. She recently completed the Sex Therapy Certification at Council for Relationships in Center City. She specializes in LGBTQI cases in her practice, including couples work and has extensive experience with treating all types of trauma. Lisa Kaye is a Licensed Massage Therapist in PA. She has been in private practice for 20 years. She specializes in Myofacial Release, a deep tissue modality. Lenore and Lisa have been together for 12 years.

Saturday, May 14th, 12-5pm – Awaken Sacred Union with Anita DeFrancesco &
Astarte Deva Shakti Bliss

*Couples Only*

Now is a time to explore  new awakenings, harmony and connection. This workshop is about exploring the relationship between the yin and yang – energies to create a partnership of equality. When we nourish and replenish our energies a new creation and wholeness surfaces, thus, keeping life in its full aliveness. Being balanced creates a fluidity of union within the relationship of wholeness to our spirit. The receptive containing energies are explored in the feminine while the masculine is the expanding pattern of forward moving energy.  The feminine flow of energy is about deeply receiving the self. In this workshop we will attend to the balance of our energies while embracing the emotional space of sacredness. We will work toward regaining the connection to the emotional being, awakening from suppression surrendering to the emotional body. We prepare by awakening the conscious flow within the body so that the transformational union begins. We will explore this through the breath, movement and energy channeling. The breath is the key focus to love and healing. Shallow breathing patterns store armor and suppress the body’s natural pulsation causing scattered mental focus. Replenish the source of your love and stay alive.

Saturday, May 28th, 3-5pm – Create Your First BDSM Scene with Raymond Wise

Screen Shot 2016-04-27 at 4.23.08 AMHave you developed an interest in BDSM? Maybe you’ve read a book, seen a movie, or been inspired online. Maybe you’ve just had these fantasies and realized people actually DO these things. Maybe your partner is interested, and you need to find out how to get started. This BDSM workshop focuses on making a fantasy come to life, and learning how to create and experience a scene! Topics will also include preparation, safety, psychology, communication, and connection.

Starting in the late 70s 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. “All I do is lead people where they want to go.” 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.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, and more.He also participates in the BDSM module of SAR at Widener University, for the Graduate Class in Human Sexuality, exposing future therapists to some aspects of BDSM.

September – DATE & TIME TBA – Dispatch from the Frontlines: The Latest About Sex Toys and Accessories with Caitlin Murphy

The adult industry is constantly changing, and it can be difficultcaitlin to keep up with: are toxic sex toys still a thing? I can’t find any good information about why I should avoid certain lube ingredients! Someone told me silicone lube melts condoms?? There is a lot of hearsay and what I like to call Sex Educator Telephone: since there isn’t much solid information and research out there, we often rely on educated guesses and the word of other professionals and sex geeks we trust, or the people manufacturing the products. This has lead to a lot of misinformation going without fact checking (since fact checking is difficult to do) – and being spread around like wildfire. I’ve gone and found as much reputable information from all corners of the industry and talked with the people trying to dig into the answer: bloggers, sex educators, and retailers doing the dirty work, so you don’t have to. Great for professionals – sexuality educators, medical professionals, sex workers – and the curious alike, whether you want to inform yourself for your work or your next purchase.

Caitlin Murphy is a sexuality professional, writer, consultant and occasional visual artist currently residing in Philadelphia, PA, when they’re not traveling. Among other honors, they were once referred to as a Level 5 Glitter Elemental. When they’re not writing or teaching about sex toys, Caitlin can generally be found with their plants – #PlantParenthood – as well as at www.sex-ational.com and @sex_ational.

Saturday, April 30th, 2-5pm – Flogging 101 Extended Workshop: Demo & Hands-On Training with Raymond Wise

Learn the basics of flogging! Topics include:- Motivation and understanding from top to bottom- Connection: That’s the real secret.- Safety Third! (Only because it’s the 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.- Effective flogging- What’s Spinach Got to Do With It? Double flogging and what I learned from a total green newbie in BDSM. There’s more than just how to double flog. Learning from others.This 3 hour workshop includes a demonstration of a flogging scene and hands on training (bring a flogger or two, medium length 14” – 18” would be best). Floggers will also be provided for practice.

*Demonstration contains partial nudity*

Starting in the late 70s 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. “All I do is lead people where they want to go.” 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. 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, and more.He also participates in the BDSM module of SAR at Widener University, for the Graduate Class in Human Sexuality, exposing future therapists to some aspects of BDSM.

We created this discussion forum specifically for Queer folks (GLBTQI) as a safe space to learn more about Open relationships and/or Poly living. The Open Relationship or Poly meet-ups and events in Philadelphia are mostly heteronormative and, although, not unwelcoming or exclusive, seem to miss or misunderstand the specific needs of Queer identified folks. We hope to facilitate questions and create an open arena for discussion so folks considering this lifestyle may benefit from the experience of those currently living it. Likewise, we hope this discussion group may provide a community of like minded folks to support and encourage one another in this unique journey. Admission is donation-based

Saturday, May 14th, 12-5pm – Awaken Sacred Union with Anita DeFrancesco &
Astarte Deva Shakti Bliss

*Couples Only*

Now is a time to explore  new awakenings, harmony and connection. This workshop is about exploring the relationship between the yin and yang – energies to create a partnership of equality. When we nourish and replenish our energies a new creation and wholeness surfaces, thus, keeping life in its full aliveness. Being balanced creates a fluidity of union within the relationship of wholeness to our spirit. The receptive containing energies are explored in the feminine while the masculine is the expanding pattern of forward moving energy.  The feminine flow of energy is about deeply receiving the self. In this workshop we will attend to the balance of our energies while embracing the emotional space of sacredness. We will work toward regaining the connection to the emotional being, awakening from suppression surrendering to the emotional body. We prepare by awakening the conscious flow within the body so that the transformational union begins. We will explore this through the breath, movement and energy channeling. The breath is the key focus to love and healing. Shallow breathing patterns store armor and suppress the body’s natural pulsation causing scattered mental focus. Replenish the source of your love and stay alive.

Anita DeFrancesco, MA, Intimacy and Relationship Educator. Her focus and vision have been the evolution of spirituality, sexuality, and teaching others to awaken from separation and suffering and to embrace the modern world with oneness and love.

Wednesday March 16th, 6-8pm – Devilish Details on How to Write Salacious Stories with Sascha

With the success of so many huge novels coming out in erotica, the craft thereof, creation and business are all things authors and readers strive to understand. Throw in Amazon, SEO and Google, and it gets even more confusing. What sells?  What’s taboo?  How far can you push the boundaries?  We’ll talk about what makes a story erotic, and how sex revolves around the context of genre crossing, detailing the sex scenes and bringing out your inner muse to play in order to get the words on the page, plus a brief exploration of the business aspect of things so authors wishing to jump in either through self publishing or go the traditional route (including E-books) have more information.

Sascha, who was proclaimed by the publishing industry as The Gentleman Playboy of Romance, started writing seventeen years ago. His erotic romances have been listed under Night Owl Romance’s and Road to Romance’s Recommended read lists, and he’s been nominated for a CAPA by The Romance Studio.  Recently, Torn to Pieces was a USA TODAY Recommended Read.

Sascha is a trained and experienced public speaker, and enjoys giving talks and teaching, particularly on aspects of romance, erotic romance, and writing. He was the former host of The Unnamed Romance Show on Radio Dentata, and is fond of doing guest spots and interviews, on both traditional radio and podcasts. Sascha writes for Assent Publishing, Red Sage, Sizzler Editions, Totally Bound, and Decadent Publishing. Find him at http://saschaillyvichauthor.com

Saturday February 20th, 2-4pm – Intimate Rituals with Raymond Wise

Do you have any BDSM Rituals? If you’ve taken the time to develop one, it already means something. Think about the ritual you’re involved in, and what kind of feelings come from that. Would you like that feeling to be stronger? Even more profound? What if the ritual included the values you share with your partner? Not just from words that you speak, but the actions of the ritual that put you both on the same page in a way that both of you can feel. When I first developed my BDSM rituals, the main purpose was to slow down, focus, and make a transition from whatever we were doing before. I started the ritual as a way to allow both myself and my submissive to get into the right frame of mind, to make the transition from the outside world to our own private world of Dominance and submission. Our ritual gives us a moment to breathe and connect. Our ritual makes our roles clear and gets us into the right frame of mind to perform our roles. In our lives, we have many roles. Worker, lover, parent, employee/employer. Roles are real. Rituals can help you get to where you need to be, to take on that role to the fullest and make it more meaningful.

Starting in the late 70s 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. “All I do is lead people where they want to go.” 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.
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, Sexploratorium and The Kink Shoppe.
He also participates in the BDSM module of SAR at Widener University, for the Graduate Class in Human Sexuality, exposing future therapists to some aspects of BDSM.

Saturday February 20th, 5-8pm – Flogging 101: Extended Workshop & Hands-On Training with Raymond Wise

Learn the basics of flogging! Topics include:
– Motivation and understanding from top to bottom
– Connection: That’s the real secret.
– Safety Third! (Only because it’s the 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.
– Effective flogging
– What’s Spinach Got to Do With It? Double flogging and what I learned from a total green newbie in BDSM. There’s more than just how to double flog. Learning from others.
This 3 hour workshop includes a demonstration of a flogging scene and hands on training (bring a flogger or two, medium length 14” – 18” would be best). Floggers will also be provided for practice.

Do you love your body? We’re flooded with images of what bodies are “good enough” and “sexy” and worth loving, but short on ways to find real body love.

Whatever your 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.

Tuesday January 12th, 6-8pm – Dropping the Hint, Not the Ball! Flirtingandreshakti.jpeg
101 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 Andre Shakti 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!

anitaFriday January 15th, 7-9pm – Develop Sexual Consciousness with Anita

When we think of sex we think of a physical connection; when we become aware, we then tap into the higher states of our consciousness thus, creating the spirit essence of our being. That is where I want to enlighten you in this workshop. Exploring the higher dimensions of your physical reality with your spiritual self brings a more solid foundation of love, passion and intimacy. Learn how to connect and open to the deeper connection of your body. Male bodies can learn to extend and multiply the pleasure while female bodies can learn to strengthen the orgasmic response. Learn to bring together your Shiva and Shakti as one within yourself. We will practice Tantra Wisdom exercises to include fire orgasm breath to open up the chakra channels, movement meditative undulations to bring about freedom of the senses, and communication to bring words to what we are feeling. Workshop is open to singles and couples. Expect to work with partners in the class.

Friday January 29th, 7-8:30pm – Queer Open Relationship/Polyamorous Discussion Group

This Discussion Group – facilitated by Lenore Jefford, LPC and Lisa Kaye, CMT – is designed for anyone who identifies as Queer (for our purposes Gay, Lesbian, Bi or Trans) who is interested in or currently in an Open relationship or Poly configuration. We created this discussion forum specifically for Queer folks (GLBTQI) as a safe space to learn more about Open relationships and/or Poly living. The Open Relationship or Poly meet-ups and events in Philadelphia are mostly heteronormative and, although, not unwelcoming or exclusive, seem to miss or misunderstand the specific needs of Queer identified folks. We hope to facilitate questions and create an open arena for discussion so folks considering this lifestyle may benefit from the experience of those currently living it. Likewise, we hope this discussion group may provide a community of like minded folks to support and encourage one another in this unique journey.

Lenore Jefford is a Licensed Professional Counselor in private practice in Mt. Airy for the last 9 years. She recently completed the Sex Therapy Certification at Council for Relationships in Center City. She specializes in LGBTQI cases in her practice, including couples work and has extensive experience with treating all types of trauma. Lisa Kaye is a Licensed Massage Therapist in PA. She has been in private practice for 20 years. She specializes in Myofacial Release, a deep tissue modality. Lenore and Lisa have been together for 12 years.

Sunday January 31st, 2-5pm – Caning 101 with Raymond WiseWiseProtector

Harsh and punishing is what generally comes to mind with Canes. It doesn’t have to be that way (but we’ll cover that as well in the workshop, but, hard, is easy.) Arousal, altered state (sub-space), orgasms are all possible with canes. The range of sensations is large and subtle.
We’ll cover:
1) Trust and Patience and Desire. Getting someone to the point where they WANT you to cane them is something you need to know about.
2) Types of canes besides rattan, there’s all sorts of materials. Sting, Thud, Arousing and other sensations are attainable with the right cane and technique.
3) Connection – You get that in most of my hands on workshops. It’s one approach to altered states, arousal, and in general, better relationships!
4) Technique – Using more of the cane for varied sensation. Thud – anchoring caning to arousal – rhythm – Altered States – double caning.
5) Sado-masochism. First thing you think of, right? Of course it’s included.
6) QUIET caning. Apartment dwellers will especially like this.
If you have canes bring a few. Canes are available for experiencing the less painful techniques. They are the ones I think you’ll find the most interesting. The workshop is 3 hours and includes a full scene, an example of how a scene can look and work. And there will be times for hands on experiences if you have a partner with you.

Sunday January 31st, 6-8pm – Connections: Putting Emotions Into Play with Raymond Wise

For most BDSM players, bringing the bottom into spacey, happy place that all partners can witness and experiencing a good connection is the focus of play. Building to the point of euphoria has way more to do with communication, emotion, and what’s going on inside our minds than physical technique. There’s all sorts of ways to get to “sub-space” and to empathetically enjoy the high of a partner. This workshop focuses on the idea of connecting with your partner, mentally, emotionally as well as physically. There are ways to connect in any situation, from first time play partners, to intensifying what you already have naturally with a long term, loving partner. You’ll get a chance to try some of the ideas and you can pick what fits for you.

Saturday February 20th, 2-4pm – Intimate Rituals with Raymond Wise

Do you have any BDSM Rituals? If you’ve taken the time to develop one, it already means something. Think about the ritual you’re involved in, and what kind of feelings come from that. Would you like that feeling to be stronger? Even more profound? What if the ritual included the values you share with your partner? Not just from words that you speak, but the actions of the ritual that put you both on the same page in a way that both of you can feel. When I first developed my BDSM rituals, the main purpose was to slow down, focus, and make a transition from whatever we were doing before. I started the ritual as a way to allow both myself and my submissive to get into the right frame of mind, to make the transition from the outside world to our own private world of Dominance and submission. Our ritual gives us a moment to breathe and connect. Our ritual makes our roles clear and gets us into the right frame of mind to perform our roles. In our lives, we have many roles. Worker, lover, parent, employee/employer. Roles are real. Rituals can help you get to where you need to be, to take on that role to the fullest and make it more meaningful.

Starting in the late 70s 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. “All I do is lead people where they want to go.” 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.
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, Sexploratorium and The Kink Shoppe.
He also participates in the BDSM module of SAR at Widener University, for the Graduate Class in Human Sexuality, exposing future therapists to some aspects of BDSM.

Learn the basics of flogging! Topics include:
– Motivation and understanding from top to bottom
– Connection: That’s the real secret.
– Safety Third! (Only because it’s the 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.
– Effective flogging
– What’s Spinach Got to Do With It? Double flogging and what I learned from a total green newbie in BDSM. There’s more than just how to double flog. Learning from others.
This 3 hour workshop includes a demonstration of a flogging scene and hands on training (bring a flogger or two, medium length 14” – 18” would be best). Floggers will also be provided for practice.

Saturday March 26th, 3-5pm – Sexual Wellness with Dr. Timaree timareeSchmit

Do you love your body? We’re 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 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 (and that will help you in the bedroom as well). Whatever your 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.

Dr. Timaree Schmit has a Ph.D. in Human Sexuality from Widener University- where she is now an instructor, along with West Chester University. She is also a certified fitness instructor, as well as a regular contributor to Philly Weekly and Philly.com. Her passion is bringing rational, empirically-based sex-positive information to the world, empowering others to celebrate their bodies, build intimacy and experience pleasure.
