Full Contact SM: Grappling, Erotic Wrestling, and Power Play
Grappling and erotic wrestling can be playful, sensuous, transformative, cathartic and empowering. We’ll explore the energy exchange of full body contact using grappling, erotic wrestling, and power play techniques. This is not lube wrestling, or rough body play like kicking, punching, or slapping. We'll cover how erotic wrestling can be a beneficial tool to the BDSM relationship, setting a scene, techniques, equipment, safety, and a demo

Female Orgasm Tease, Denial, and Control
Orgasm tease, denial and control can be a hot stand-alone scene of several hours or an ongoing component of a dominant-submissive dynamic. Male orgasm control seems fairly simple: lock up his goodies. But how does one control the female orgasm short of a medieval (and impractical) chastity belt? Join Big Red and superdillon for this interactive conversation on female orgasm tease, denial, and control. We will discuss the differences between tease, denial, and control as well as the psychological and physiological impacts of each. We will share ideas for devious tease & denial games and techniques and pointers for maximizing the fun for both the teaser and the teased. Orgasm tease, denial, and control is not hot or even appropriate for all people and we'll cover the characteristics of a good candidate for this deliciously torturous form of play.
Caro
Leather Generations
This is a class originally developed for LLC 8, and explores the concept that there are distinct “leather generations,” (defined as a group of persons (who may or may not be contemporaneous in chronological age) but who share(d) common experiences, and often it is the “generational experience” that influences what we think about leather and how we “experience” leather. The class explores the generational and intergenerational dynamics with the leather lifestyle and discusses the common and divergent experiences for each “generation.” Attendees will gain an appreciation of the common and diverse factors that influence each generation, in order to better understand that generation with an eye toward growing the leather community transgenerationally.”
Dex

Learn how position, touch, breathing, focusing, sharing, techniques, and yes even toys can be used to exchange energy. Everyone wants to connect on a deeper level their passions for the spirit and soul of leather.

Breaking the Sound Barrier – Female Sounds

This presentation breaks through the mysticism of sounds on a female. Sound play on males is many a Domme’s bread and butter. It is visually interesting for the voyeur as well as intensely stimulating for the male, whether it is simply urethral stretching with sounds, through vibration play, or more advanced electric play. The mysticism which surrounds playing with sounds on a female is a barrier few break through. How do you do a workshop illustrating technique on a female urethra which remains largely veiled within and covered by the labia? Come find out and watch how the sound barrier is broken. Females are wired differently than males, and sound play, to be effective, must be uniquely suited to the female. Few females are playing with females using sounds, and even fewer male Doms are playing with females using sounds. This can prove to be very erotic play that goes beyond the simple medical table to heightened senses of arousal. The presenter will use a laptop, webcam, and LCD projector to bring the audience into the presentation by showing close-ups of the female urethra, sound insertion, and play techniques. Several audience volunteers will be needed to operate the camera and assist the presenter as a second gloved pair of hands. Multimedia equipment will be provided by presenter.
Edge
Catharsis: Body and Mind
Cathartic release can sometimes happen spontaneously in a scene, surprising and perhaps even scaring a bottom or a Top. This program offers an understanding of what catharsis is and purposefully pursues it through mindfuck and pain play. Mindfuck--making someone think something's happening that's not really happening--can range from the mild (blindfolding someone and pretending to leave the room) to the extreme (having someone dig their own grave as part of a scene). But while the fear involved in this play has a definite erotic charge, it can also be used to help a person heal, grow, transform, and release. Similarly, pain play produces more than just endorphins. It can be the vehicle for personal transformation. We will explore these possibilities.

Inner Thigh Beating; Or, Intense Ritualistic Pain for Dummies
I first got into beating inner thighs because, simply, I didn't have any skills with whips or floggers, didn't have the time to acquire them, but sure as hell knew how to make a fist and sink it into flesh. Since then, though, I've come to appreciate the unique advantages of this sort of pain scene in terms of intimacy, intensity, rhythm, and ritual. In this program, we'll cover the appeal of an inner thigh beating, discuss a variety of implements that can be used (besided good ol' fists), walk through the pacing of such a scene, and consider the wonderful possibilities and after effects.
Mark Frazier

The workshop will conclude with hands on demo's.

"Is It Still ‘Interrogation’ When You Don't Care What They Have To Say?" Master Chrysty and Vaughn will present the oft-discussed and highly-politicized technique of waterboarding. If it’s good enough for the CIA to use, and bad enough for the United Nations to ban, then it is suitable for us Edge Players.

Master Bob and slave jan
Spirituality and Sexuality in a Master / slave relationship
The erotic is about feeling deeply with all of our being--it's about living from our creative center and acting from the source of life itself; spirituality is the path we choose, the way we live day-to-day, to fulfill our desire for wholeness and connection. A healthy eroticism and a strong spiritual path will lead us to deeper and richer levels of wholeness within ourselves, and to life-giving connections on many levels with other people and the rest of nature. Come and join us in this workshop on Spirituality and Sexuality and discover ways to develop this richness.

How did they pace and manage the changes? What were the challenges? In this conversational workshop we will be sharing our own personal experiences on this journey and will be inviting discussion and questions from the audience. It is never the same from one journey to the next.

Master Obsidian and slave namaste SW Master/slave 2010

The Winter of O/our discontent
The pain of serious relationship conflict can motivate us to seek relief in ways that are inadequate or even harmful to the fundamental needs of the M/s dynamic. When faced with discord many M/s relationships implode under the weight of discussion, or suffer in silence through chronic conflict avoidance. Frequently, explosive confrontations are the damaging result of frustration on both sides. We believe that there are alternative ways for both Master and slave to communicate serious concerns through a process that is designed to respect, strengthen and perpetuate the M/s relationship, instead of temporarily abandoning the M/s structure to use and by the use of an ‘egalitarian’ problem solving model. Join Master Obsidian and slave namaste on an exploration of practical conflict resolution methods based upon ancient principles. Both Master and slave will be equipped with tools to assist in tackling tough relationship issues without sacrificing the M/s relationship in the process.

Sacred Service (spirituality and service) What is the "spirit" of Service? How can you combine spirituality and service to elevate your power exchange dynamic . How can service be a spiritual tool? What is the role of the Dominant/Master in this dance of service? Master Obsidian and slave namaste explore the concepts of spirituality and of service and will teach how combining the two can create a synergy that is both compelling and intense, serving to deepen the dynamic and strengthen the bonds between Master and slave. You'll learn practical tools and ideas for engaging the spiritual heart of service, how to ritualize any action or directive, the definition and importance of Presence, and much more. Come with an open mind!

Master Gallad and slave Kelly
The Power of Journaling and Effective Communication: The unspoken path in the D/s M/s dynamic
Both Master Gallad and slave kelly used Journaling from the start of their D/s M/s relationship. This unspoken offering had open the doors to each other, which provided the unspoken acceptance of the M/s dynamic. From a day in a life to provoking deep awareness, Journaling became part of the strong foundation we built. We will explore how Journaling can be used as discipline, consistency, ritual, trust, facing fears, healing, and that divine path to each other.

Beyond The Word Love: Unconditional Acceptance in M/s
We practice love all our lives, yet much of what we practice is selfish, possessive, petty, and needful. An M/s dynamic opens the possibility of the purity of love. Accepting and loving the authenticity of who we are enable us to love others unconditionally. The M/s dynamic and the embracing of unselfishness enable not only growth in the self, but growth in the other. Explore the possibilities of exploring love that is expansive and generous.
Master John
Saline Infusion
Learn the art of power exchange by infusion of Saline into the male scrotum This is a powerful exchange due to this last for 24 hours on general and requires high technique. It will cause liquid weight to the scrotum area which can be both humiliating and exhilarating to the male bottom. It may cause him not to fit in to some of his leathers or require special attention. It is also an added bonus to electrical play as saline conducts electricity.

The insertion of stainless steel rods into the penis eventually reaching the bladder. This cause incredible sensations for the male bottom. We will learn how to do vibrating, ribbed, electrical sounds as well. Sounds are medical instruments originally used to clear blockages in the urethra.

Needle Bondage
Needle Bondage encompasses the skills of needle play, stapling and suturing and takes them in the direction of bondage. Limbs can be laced to each other, mouths, pussies and cocks can be “sewn” shut or open. Needles can force nipples away from the body or keep them “caged”. This demonstration is intended to show some of the possibilities and will explain only basic safety concerns and techniques, people not already skilled at needle play should seek further training before attempting these on their own.

Non-Consensual Consent
This class focuses on the type of play that strives for a real and deep sense of abandonment of responsibility (on the submissive’s part) or of total control (on the dominant’s) in order to feed the sexual circuitry. What often seems to be a catch 22 in our world of bdsm, especially along the D/s lines, is that same feeling many of us crave so badly - to have zero control, or to have it all, while still feeling safe enough that we have not crossed the line in the sand that of real abuse to oneself or one’s lover. The puzzle gets more intricate the longer a bdsm couple stays together. Why is this type of play so valuable to us? And more importantly how do we get it? This class hopes to send you away with some new insights and options.
