SATURDAY, JULY 15

1:00 pm | Sensual Spanking

Presenter: Madison
So Much More Than a Smack on the Behind
The often overlooked art of spanking tends to be seen as a quick act of foreplay, or a ‘handy’ means of punishment. Rarely do we see spanking as a complete scene in itself. I am happy to challenge that perspective, and show you how spanking can be sexy, powerful, erotic and above all FUN. This workshop will be suitable for players of all experience levels and all Leather orientations. During this workshop we will discuss various spanking styles and purposes, as well as how to negotiate a spanking scene. You will then get to enjoy some delicious demonstrations, and if you bring along a top or a bottom, perhaps even try your hand at spanking, or receiving a spanking, yourself! My goal is to have every participant leave with a love of sensual spanking as strong as mine. Bottoms up!

SUNDAY, JULY 16

Caning can be a power act of passion and play during any S&M activity. The sensations can range from very mild impact and be very sensual, to vary heavy and intense play.

This workshop will be an entry level introduction to the wonderful experience that is spanking. During the workshop we will be going over the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of spanking as well as what safety considerations exist for an enjoyable session, many of which apply to other forms of play as well. We will also be explaining and demonstrating a variety of different spanking techniques which can be used to elicit many different sensational reactions, and we will also be exploring ways a scene can progressively flow from beginning through to the end. This will include additional emphasis for bottoms on how to communicate both verbally and non verbally during play.

2:00 pm | Sleep Sack Bondage

Presenter: Peter Heid
Confinement, Safety, and Comfort for an Extended Time
The sensation of a sleep sack is truly unique. Imagine being tightly confined with no options for movement. Sleep-sacks allow a person to be comfortably in bondage for an extended period. Like a conventional sleeping bag, a person climbs into a sleep-sack and is usually zipped into it up to their neck. Generally, sleep-sacks are very tight on the body, adding to the bondage aspect of the experience and leaving them totally helpless.

3:00 pm | Leather Care 101

Presenter: San Diego Bootblack 2017, Red
Leather Care: An introductory course in learning to clean, condition, and polish leather to prolong the life of your favorite leather items, whether it’s a jacket, vest, shoes, boots or toys. An introduction to bootblacking as an art and its significance in the Leather community will be included.

4:00 pm | Single-Tail Whips

Presenter: Travis
Whips, Pleasure and Pain
Everyone knows a whip when they hear one. Some people are terrified by them. Others get a little excited. This class is designed for both extremes and all in between. We will discuss and demonstrate technique, style, safety and above all connecting with your partner. It is intended to be more of a guided exchange of energy. A journey through the pleasure and pain that is so unique to the whip.

5:00 pm | Erotic Shaving

Presenter: Naria
The Sharp and Sexy Edge of Straight Razors
Soap, brushes, hot towels, strops, and hot oil. Add an intimidating, sharp and shiny straight edge razor and you have all the makings for a wicked, sensual, and sexy-as-f%$k evening of literal edge play! This class will cover all the basics of using a straight edge razor properly, and then incorporating it into a scene that will be a hot and memorable experience.
