Thursday Class Descriptions

Block 1 –   3pm to 4pm

Newbie Track – At First Glance w/Sir Gethan & his Roseblu
This class goes over the basics of interacting with various dynamics. You will learn what to look for, how to address those people, and some basic etiquette surrounding the scene. while this class is geared for the new people to the BDSM community it is also a good class to take if you are just not sure what you are seeing, how to act, or if you just find that you are always the awkward one that puts their foot in the mouth at the drop of the hat. At first glance teaches the methods and cues so that you can interact with at least an educated guess of what to expect when you see some and you know “Hey something is going on there”.

Concept becoming real – Spirituality, Religion, Mastery, and slavery w/ Master Icedog & slave ravyn
Religion is one of those topics that can be a risky, challenging one to discuss. One person’s spirituality is another’s religion, and it is often said that what we do in our kinky lives can be spiritual moments. Coming from different childhood backgrounds, Master IceDog and slave ravyn have different perspectives on religion, yet are able to have a thriving M/s dynamic nonetheless. We will give insight into the religious portion of our lives and dynamic, along with a discussion on parallels between teachings of religions and how they relate or conflict with a Master/slave dynamic.

Just be you Track -Power Exchange?! w/ Ava & Meredith
A lot of time and discussion went into forming this class. Within an M/s, O/p or D/s relationship one usually assumes the Top/ Dominant/ Owner & Master is top dog, head honcho etc. with the balance of power in their favor. Others disagree and say the bottom/ submissive/ property/ slave holds all the cards. What happens if the power is actually equal? Is it still a power exchange dynamic? Who has authority? Who takes care of whom? This is an open classroom discussion and we look forward to giving you our combined perspective, as well as hearing yours.
