On Wednesday December 14, Lord Saxnot gave his rope bondage workshop. Remember – before you take the Advanced Rope Bondage workshop you will need to have taken the Basic first!
There was a good attendance, and those taking it caught on pretty fast on the subject. Besides how to tie, where to tie and not to tie was also taught (not everyong knows you shouldn’t in some areas!)

Incredibly how little we really know about BDSM and the law and more importantly, what is really legal and what we can get in trouble for. Very important workshop! If you missed it, sign up for last chance Nov.23rd.
Three points I took away:
1) BDSM IS NOT ILLEGAL IN CANADA!!!
2) It is very important that “STOP”, “NO” and “YES” really mean what they mean. Safewords are not reliable!!!
3) You have a responsibility as a parent to keep your kinky things locked and out of sight of your children.
Well, no matter how hard I try, there is just NO way to cover BDSM basics in an hour an a half. Usually this class is a seminar (3-4 hours) but that is just too long for a Wednesday night. However, we had a record turn-out so thank you all for coming. SAKA (Sexuality and Kink Advocacy) McGill group brought a few people with them and I was happily surprised to see so many long time experienced BDSM’ers attending. Thanks to my lovely demo model Glovedsub… X marks the spot haha (inside joke).

Self care is essentially being Read the rest of this entry
Pierre Black presented an interesting workshop on relations manifesting. After asking what the people attending were into, he customised the workshop to answer their problems. We had some very diverse problems but he helped everyone.
This was another very interesting workshop. Contessa Alura talked about the different type of candles. What to use and what not to use. Also how to prepare the play area and security items you should have when doing wax play. She then started her demonstration on her lovely model. After dripping some wax on him, she decided to blindfold him so Read the rest of this entry
