Wrap, risk-reduction, and ropes!

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!)

Bondage, Brats, and More Bondage! / Ligotage, Brat et encore du ligotage

20151018_172853Français ci-dessous

On Sunday the 18th of October, the ALCC held 2 workshops and a group. First up was Intermediate Bondage with Vanessa, then Brats 101 with Mangue, then the Bondage Practice group. A “Triple B Day”! lol!

In the Intermediate Bondage, people were refreshed on safety and risk reduction while doing bondage, then they started with hands on learning. From ways to bind limbs to objects singly, with two variations on the tie – one for laying down and one for standing. Next was ways to bind limbs together, some harness variations and styles, then ways to perform hogties and strapado tie. Read the rest of this entry

A sexual orientation often forgotten!!!

Asexuality Workshop

Warren and Kyran provided us with an illuminating workshop on Asexuality. One way of defining  an asexual person is as: someone who does not experience directed sexual attraction. Just getting into that definition led to some very interesting conversation, questions and comments.  Asexuality is a sexual orientation, rather than a lifestyle in itself. But the issues surrounding it made Read the rest of this entry

Parade Then Bondage… Can It Get Better?

Rope gauntlet done at the amateur bondage group, silk rope

The turnout at the Amateur Bondage Group on Sunday, August 14th was pretty good, even though some of us had finished a pretty tiring couple of days with Pride! And after the Pride Parade those of us who were in it were prettttyyyy tired lol!  Heck I was still in my fetish gear 😛

It seems every month the group gets a new person popping in, which is great! That is what the group is there for! A place for those who are new or even just a tad rusty to hone up on their rope bondage skills by practicing on each other.  Thankfully J brought a whack of rope, as I didn’t have time to go home and grab mine!  He has a fabulous assortment of various types!

Even with a few of us a bit fatigued, there was quite a bit of practice going on, and I was impressed at how quickly those new caught on 🙂

So if you’ve never attended one, and are new or need some practice, come on by to the next one!  (I’ll try nudge Contessa to be there 😉 hehehe)

Hot bondage on a hot day

Amateur Bondage Group, July 10, 2011

It was hot on Sunday, and thankfully there was air conditioning at the ALCC because there was some hot bondage being done! Yanno, for supposed “amateurs” the group did some pretty remarkable ties! If you have yet to attend one, I would definitely suggest attending one – you can help show others what you know and you can learn some pretty cool new stuff off of others too.  We even had a couple of new faces show!  Salutations to B and D!

And it seemed that the time flew by so quickly! I guess that what they do say about “time flying when having fun” is sooooo true!  “Still” had only completed two ties and the group was winding down… but *great* ties they were – as you can see!

Dark and Erotic Imaginings Group – March 20



We were treated to some fascinating readings at the latest Dark and Erotic Imaginings Group. Clov brought one of Edgar Allan Poe’s stories to life with humour and observations. We also had some new attendees read some quite amazing work of their own. I never cease to be astonished by the quality of the writing that we hear at this group.
Luscious brought some wonderfully erotic literature. And she truly does have a fantastic reading voice. I felt so inspired, I might try my own hand at writing some poetry to share.

Getting tied up?!

Last Sunday’s bondage practice group was another great success.  We had a good group of people showing up.  Some practiced stuff learned in the Bondage 101 workshop and some with books.  Some practiced in pairs and some as a group.  But everyone was busy trying out new things.  Looking forward to the next one on the second Sunday of each month. 
Enjoy our wicked photos. We can’t believe how fast this group has taken off!

Information! Ve Vant Information!

Interrogation Scenes: The interrogation workshop was interesting to say the least. I certainly did not expect to get a true accounting of how it’s actually done in the military as well as getting some true life experiences. The instructor’s knowledge and enthusiasm on interrogations and its techniques was obvious and the attendees were very quick to extrapolate the “mind fuck” goals  of interrogations and apply thess to the practical aspects of BDSM scenes. I truly look forward to my next interrogation scene… I think… but.. then again, maybe not… oh damn… I don’t remember what I said before… oh shit… 🙂
