Non-Monogamy and Socio-Economic Class

Presented by Andre Shakti

Whether we want to admit it or not, the very ability to practice non-monogamy is a privilege, significantly impacted by socio-economic class. Despite what society would have us believe, we are neither more or less deserving of love and intimacy based on our financial capital. This concept alone can feel impossible to unlearn within a monogamous relationship structure; now, consider individuals who participate in alternative relationship structures that contain three or more individuals.

Through instruction and demos by a professional nurse with 25 years of experience, we’ll explore play piercing, sutures, medical stapling and blood draws. Not for beginning blood players or the squeamish: participants should have a general awareness of safety protocol with sharps and blood-borne diseases.

Presented by Ms. Cat & Kaycee Pup

You've seen the Ponies in the parades. Perhaps you've had the urge to frolic with the puppies at fairs. Your interests are piqued and perhaps now you’re wondering what’s your play animal? And how do you begin your pet play journey? Or maybe you're an experienced player ready to dive into the psyche of your pet. You’ll learn how to navigate headspace, interacting with other animals and understanding our human limitations as pet and Handler.

Two Great Tastes That Go Together: Piercing & Impact

Presented by Lolita Wolf

Like peanut butter and chocolate, these activities are great by themselves. But, put them together and … WOW! We are all used to combining various elements to create a good scene, but some things do not seem to go together. This class will show needles and staples being impacted with canes and singletails. A whole new “slap and trickle.”
