Thank you everyone! – Salon de l’Amour 2016 – Grande merci a tout!!!

Français ci-dessous

January 15-17 the ALCC/CCVA was at the Salon de l’amour et de la seduction in the “Kink Corner.” We provided information, education, demonstrations, and educational stage presentations. The Vac-bed’s were unbelievably popular, as well as the violet wand! So many people were volunteering to try out different activities at our different play stations!!! All our communities were represented  (Poly, Trans*, Bi/Pansexual, Swingers, and Asexuals)! Thank you to all those who volunteered to help make this such a success and to all who stopped by!

BDSM & The Law

BDSM & The Law, Sunday November 13, 2011

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.

Just Starting Out? Well We Have A Beginners Class!

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).

More BDSM Beginnings

BDSM For Beginners, Sept 14, 2011

Contessa Alura gave her workshop for BDSM For Beginners, which was very well attended (we had to fetch extra seating Read the rest of this entry

Beginnings… everyone begins somewhere!

BDSM Play for Beginners

The BDSM Play for beginners workshop is probably the one with the most material to cover.  It deals with all aspects of BDSM play from finding people to play, negociating a scene, play safety with demos and a play scene scenario.  Contessa Alura also suggested play kits for both beginners and more advanced players.  These kits should be part of anyone looking for play.  Just a warning for future volunteers in this workshop,  bring some lipstick.  Why?  Well Contessa Alura likes to mark the the areas where the person shoulnd’t be hit .  She had to use a permanent marker on me…lol.  A very informative and detailed workshop.  All beginners and even more advanced players will find this workshop interesting.  Also this workshop was being filmed for a documentary that will be shown in France.

Finally here… BDSM for Dummies!

Our first group was very quiet due to the day being the first lovely spring day of the year. It’s actually a lucky break for me since Gilles found a bunch of typo’s in my BDSM Beginnger pamphlet so I was kind of saved.
 
This new group will essentially replace our old BDSM Etiquitte and BDSM Beginner Safety. We feel a group is a better setting to encourage new people to come and learn about BDSM and share about their fears and concerns or question.
 
This group is for all those new to BDSM or interested in learning more. The first hour will be an info session about BDSM, conducting yourself in the community, getting started at events, what to wear, how to meet people, and of course providing you the basics you need to know about safety and experimenting. The second hour we will open the floor to questions and sharing. The last hour will be for everyone to chat, socialize, and make friends!

Satanica Violet Wand 101 November 10, 2010

violet wand

   The workshop started with a brief history of the violet wand and of some of it’s early use.  It mainly appeared around the beginning of the 20th century.  Some of it’s early use was to treat certain skin problems.  Today it’s still in use to dissinfect the skin after removal of black heads or other skin treatment.. 

   Satanica then explained the differences between the old violet wands with a wax core and the newer ones with a ceramic core.  After that she started explaining the different types of play with the wand.  Including direct contact, indirect contact via the top (dominant) and finally indirect contact via the bottom (submissive). 

   She then started demonstrating different electrodes on her lovely model.  During this she explained the safety factors and risk of violet wand play.  3 main reasons you should not play with a violet wand.  1- You are epileptic.  2- You have heart problems. 3- You have a pacemaker.

   She demonstrated the 3 main types of play with different electrodes.  All having different levels of intensity and effects.  Finally she concluded the workshop on how to clean your wand and how to maintain it in top shape.

   A very informative workshop.
