November 29th was one of the 5th Sundays we have flogging workshop and group, and an extra workshop. This month was Extreme Flogging with Mr Panda, followed by the Flogging group, which was followed by Pet Play with Mx Prince and Rosemabby. In the workshop, Mr Panda talked about different ways Read the rest of this entry
We had some new faces and varying perspectives. Our topic of discussion was sharing our different roles in BDSM and how we came to decide them. It seems easy at first to think you know what role you want to play in BDSM but when you really start to look at the options, it actually becomes much more challenging. Top/bottom, Dom(me)/sub, Switch, these are only the most familiar roles. There’s pets, owners, ring leaders, Read the rest of this entry
What a blast! I was truly impressed by the openness and willingness of attendees to try out the wrestling with complete strangers of varying capabilities and identities. This was not an in-depth training with specialized skills kind of kinky wrestling that the infamous Mr. O teaches, though I LOVE his workshops. No-one can do what Mr. O does so forget it. No, I would say my workshop is more like street fighting, or scrapping like a wild beast unchained and Read the rest of this entry
BDSM and the Law
This workshop was very informative for myself and everyone who attended. I was joined by the …. who provided a much more in-depth explanation of the legal terms I discussed and provided court rulings as examples. Understanding the law and interpreting the law are two differnt subjects and when you inform people that asking for or receiving bodily harm in Canada is illegal… people who engage in BDSM are terrified and anyone considering experimenting in this type of play, quickly decide against it. We use the term RACK (risk aware consensual kink) to mean practicing BDSM responsibly. That includes Read the rest of this entry
The Mummification and Risk Reducing Self-Bondage workshops and the Bondage Practice Group!
First was the mummification, where Vanessa not only showed methods of mummifying someone, but also the safety and as well things you can do when someone is mummified. Whether it’s food wrap or pallet wrap, or even vet wrap, mummification is hot! (And in other ways of the word, as those mummified found out!)
Our Poly afternoon was off to a good start with a few of new students asking thoughtful queries surrounding the lifestyle. The group that followed, was well attended but regular participants. As a whole, we were asked to help initiates by considering the questions.” What pitfalls could a newly polyamorous person avoid, if we could advise them ahead of time.” We all make the same common mistakes and just reminding ourselves of the simple things is always in our best interest. A relationship is just that, between two people and needs to be nurtures on it’s own merit. A small group also met afterward to discuss it further. At it’s heart, our mission of informing our family and friends when ever possible makes Poly more main stream and helps us all. Read the rest of this entry
Gender identity & sexual orientation in the Bi group / l’identité de genre et l’orientation sexuelle
The participants introduce themselves with a quick presentation and we went straight at defining labels and expressions around gender identity and sexual orientation by sharing our perception about them since some participants requested clarifications. We then decided to discuss a specific topic about dealing with the unobtainable, by example encounters with a person of the same sex while being in an heterosexual monogamous relationship. Several ideas were discussed, kind of like a brainstorm, and Read the rest of this entry
English version follows
Une seule personne s’est présenté à la rencontre du groupe Passion & Handicap. Le sujet de la discussion a été facile à déterminer.
On a discuté du manque d’intérêt pour le groupe Passion & Handicap.
– De toute évidence, le groupe, dans sa forme actuelle, ne répond pas aux besoins des personnes handicapés, en rapport à l’expression de leur sexualité.
– Pourtant, plusieurs se plaignent de la discrimination systémique de la société à ce sujet. Read the rest of this entry
On November 1st, we had the Alternative Lifestyles workshop, Disability group, and the Gender Empowerment group.
In the alternative lifestyles workshop, Vanessa covered not just alt lifestyles but as well marginalized identities and orientations. In it, polyamory, swingers, nudists, BDSM, asexual, bisexual, and trans among more were covered. Don’t forget! This is the workshop you need to attend to become a member! Read the rest of this entry
