Adventures in Watersports: Daddy’s Little Urinal

Nudegirl

This class is for aspiring piss sluts or couples who are interested in adding this, often considered taboo, play into their kink life. This isn’t a ‘how to’ class for Tops, but if you are interested in it from the bottom’s perspective you are more than welcome to attend. We will cover a wide range of watersports and talk about motivation, power exchange, safety and eroticism. There will be tips for bottoms on how to manage, enjoy or suffer beautifully through various types of piss play. The class is focussed towards bottoms but couples can come or Tops who are interested from a bottom’s perspective.

Note: participation in the demo portion may be limited to the amount of kiddy pools available. If you participate, you must clean up your own areas afterwards – meaning all garbage put in bags and tied for us to dispose of please.

Discussion, Demonstration, and Optional Participation
Primarily bottoms; others are welcome to attend.

Water and/or a full bladder, towel for personal use IF you want to participate in the hands on.

Hojo/Torinawa: Shibari’s Warrior Roots

Seattle Shibari

Come explore the martial antecedent to Shibari/ Kinbaku: Hojojutsu, the classical warrior art of capturing and binding an opponent. One of the 18 disciplines studied by the Japanese warrior, the arresting-rope art evolved into a complex and ornate system of beautiful ties designed to reflect the social status of the bound prisoner, and went on to deeply influence the aesthetic of Shibari / Kinbaku.

This workshop will feature a multimedia lecture on the historical origin and cultural context of Hojojutsu, demonstrations, and a block of instruction in several basic hayanawa (‘fast rope’) Hojojutsu techniques and ties. Trained in Japan and the USA, the instructor has an academic background in Japanese classical martial culture, and field experience as an initiate into several martial traditions containing hojo/torinawa as part of their curriculum.

Note: For reasons of safety and to ensure supervised attention to all students, the participation portion of the class will be limited to 20 students.

Prerequisites: Tops should be able to confidently tie a single column tie and a half hitch. Bottoms should be comfortable with rope around the neck. This workshop is appropriate for all genders, sexual orientations, and body types.

Hands-On Practice
Rigger/Bottom Couples. Others are welcome to observe.
Beginner/Intermediate; see specific requirements in the description above.
One 15’ piece of 4mm rope. If your rope is longer or thicker, that’s fine, but the techniques are optimized for a 15’ length, 4mm diameter rope.

Interrogation

Scott Smith

The not so gentle art of persuasion and discussion. Sleep deprivation, bright lights, screaming, crying, objectification, vulnerability, consensual non-consent, and diligence of spirit; how to set the stage to have the bottom singing. Tricks, techniques, and useful garden utensils will all be covered in this workshop on interrogation scenes lasting from half an hour to several days. Other aspects that will be discussed include: role-playing and interrogation, how to make the scene as real as is possible, special thoughts on long scenes and questions that you bring. This class is intended to bring a bit of reality to the subject, and explore the limits of both bottom and onlookers.

Note: there will be a myriad of triggers, depending on the attendee.

Kinbaku 201: Floorwork Patterns

Seattle Shibari

You’ve learned some basic ties—but how do you use them together to make a hot scene? How do you transition your partner smoothly from one position to another, keeping the scene going?

In this 90-minute class, we’ll explore effective ways to place your partner into beautiful positions on the ground, and move them smoothly & safely from one position to another. By the end of the class, you’ll have learned a basic kata/form you can use to do a hot, multi-position floorwork progression, and use as a template for creating your own individual progressions.

NOTE: Due to the detailed & time-intensive nature of this workshop, choosing one person in the duo to tie will be optimal. To ensure personal attention to each participant, the participation portion will be limited to 8 duos.

Prerequisites: Tops should be comfortable tying a 2-rope gote shibari (‘box tie’). If you do not wish to use a box tie for the course, it’s fine to tie a hands-free chest harness, instead. Bottoms should be comfortable being tied face down on the ground in moderate-to-intense restrictive positions (eg hogtie etc). This class is appropriate for all genders, sexual orientations, and body types!

Hands-On Practice
Rigger/Bottom Couples. Others are welcome to observe.
Intermediate; see specific requirements in the description above.
  • 6 to 8 lengths of 5-6mm rope, 24’-30’ each.
  • Safety Shears
  • See further prerequisites in the description above.

Kinbaku 301: Hikyaku (‘Postman’) & Agura (‘Lotus’) Suspensions

Seattle Shibari

In this 90-minute class, we’ll do a close examination of two beautiful, fundamental suspensions: Hikyaku (‘Postman/Running Man’) and Agura (‘Seated/Lotus’)

We’ll cover:

  • Suspension mechanics
  • Troubleshooting body placement
  • Aesthetics
  • Top Line Management
  • Safety Issues

Suspension bondage is an advanced technique, and hazardous. In order to ensure the safety of participants, the instructor will assess student skill level. If a student’s tying is deemed unsafe by the instructor, the student may be invited to observe instead of doing full suspension. Want to be ready for this workshop? Practice! A chest harness may be used for students who do not wish to use the gote shibari tie.

Due to the detailed & time-intensive nature of this workshop, choosing one person in the duo to tie will be optimal. This workshop is appropriate for all genders, sexual orientations, and body types.

Note: To ensure personal attention to each participant, the participation portion will be limited to 8 duos.

Prerequisites: This is an intermediate-level workshop. Tops should be able to competently tie a 2-rope TK/Gote Shibari/’Box Tie,’ and be competent in basic suspension line locking techniques. Bottoms should have basic experience in suspension, and be capable of handling several short-term suspensions over a 90 minute period.

Hands-On Practice
Rigger/Bottom Couples. Others are welcome to observe.
Intermediate/Advanced; see specific requirements in the description above.
  • 7-8 26’-30’ ropes, 6mm in diameter. Hemp or Jute is recommended. Feel free to use 8mm hemp or jute for the main suspension line (8mm is stronger/safer as a main suspension line). It’s also helpful to have some shorter lengths of rope in your kit.
  • At least 4 pear-shaped or oval carabiners. I recommend the Petzl Hera Attache, available at REI. Catalog Item #109589. Your carabiners must be rated for climbing.
  • Gear appropriate for hanging your suspension rig from the facility hardpoints.
  • Optional: Steel Suspension Ring

Military-Style Bondage

Graydancer & Dr. Eaves

Military-style bondage draws from the traditions of the samurai, the cavalry, the native Americans, special forces, and even various fictional sources to explore the fun of role-play in a Military style. Explore not only the physical forms of restraint and the reasoning behind them (including how to modify them for the safety and comfort of your “prisoner”) but also the psychological aspects of military discipline, interrogation techniques, and especially the methods of securing and manipulating the body.

Mind, Body, and Sole: Erotic Boot Play & Worship

PoppaNawa

Those folks that love leather, often love BOOTS! And not just foot fetishists! Aside from a nice pair of boots making at the wearer look butch and hot as hell, boot play provides a plethora of BDSM experiences for both Dominant and submissive partners. Since the post war veterans brought back strict protocol in regards to fit and finish, to the modern BDSM and leather scenes, folks who love boots often develop their own process of playing in, on, and around them! in their “Bootplay & Worship” demonstration and discussion, Poppa and Bea share a few of their own tips techniques and tricks from their own toy box. Share how polishing, bootlicking, worship, and applied edges and impact of different boot styles may be used to enhance your D/s or S/m scenes.

Negotiation for Bad Bottoms

Nudegirl

Are you an ‘s’ type that either has bad boundaries or your kink is such that negotiation is a serious buzz kill? Do you lean towards consensual non-consent dynamics, or get off on having your boundaries challenged or stomped on? Do you prefer to dive into the dark waters and deal with the consequences later? If you related to some or all of these but still want to keep yourself intact, happy and ready for more, then this is the class for you.

Oomph! I’m not supposed to bend that way!: Empty Hand Rough Body Play!

PoppaNawa

Tapping out is the martial arts equivalent of a yellow light! Let’s get into that! Do you want to make somebody yelp and squirm with minimal equipment? Maybe you finally have someone bound, but no other tools to use? Maybe you want to have an impromptu rough scene with zero planning? In this class, Poppa covers Joint Locking and Pressure Points for Sensation Play. This hands-on, partner-based, class also touches on Empty Hand Take Downs, Pinning, Choking, and Body Manipulation play for rough sex. A hefty portion of these techniques can also be utilized as “dirty tricks for wrestling with bigger people”! Please bring a willing partner, and disclose any physical limitations in advance.

Outside the Scene: Pre-Planning & Aftercare

Merit

Walk into your average community play party, and you will see all sorts of wonderful perverts doing all sorts of unspeakable things to each other… but a scene is more than just those moments in the dungeon. The work and planning that goes into creating an amazing scene and the aftercare that wraps that scene up is very seldom talked about, leaving most people to muddle through and figure it out on their own. We will be taking a look at the the parts of a scene that happen outside of the dungeon – from the first ask to the final thank you.

Predicament Bondage

Scott Smith

Human origami, complete with folding, spindling and drooling.

If you are looking for creative rope combinations for fun, fear, and frolicking, this is most certainly “it”. This workshop is rated “Hide face and cry” by Bottoms globally.

Ranboo

Barkas & Addie

In 2011, Barkas started to develop his personal way of doing ropes, which was very stormy and overwhelming. His Sensei Osada Steve called it ranboo and since then, this way of doing ropes became one of the well-known styles in the world of kinbaku. Within this class, the participants get a first insight into ranboo. Some key terms of ranboo, such as proper distance and proper intensity at the proper moment are the framework to tie in this way.

Class Content

Sacred Crimson Energy Exchange

Master Triskelan

Incorporating a demonstration of partner butterfly blood draw and energy exchange incorporating primal crimson feeding/exchange, blade play, and tribal body painting. This workshop will provide a brief lecture and demo combination followed by attendee Q & A.

Personally drawn to experiencing sensations of cold steel edges, sharp hollow points of piercing needles, soothing blades of shiny scalpels, along with the smell and sight of blood as it drips down the flesh- Master Triskelan and partner in crime, Sir Adam quickly realized they were into all things sharp and pointy that include blood play. For some folks, there is a thirsting desire for the final outcome of drawing and tasting the blood of their partner. For others, it is the bonding ritual of the shared bloodletting journey that takes them to their ultimate place. If you are called to share in similar energy driven endorphin flying experiences, come join us as we explore the ritualistic edgy side to sharp and pointies as a means to create the visceral space of sacred crimson exchange.

DaddyCrone Leenie

For this class we will learn how to kick it up by adding, the sexy as hell, straight razor! The intimacy, the sensations of the razor gliding across a throat, pussy or ass, hell any where on the body, the scrape of the hair being severed and the trust between two people as they dance the razors edge!

Waterboarding

Scott Smith

For those bottoms who still give you the, “is that all you’ve got look”, this should take care of them. It will make them wet, it will likely make you wet, and if they decide to heave, you’ll know what they had for dinner. This is about as subtle as a freight train, or Scott Smith, as they are rather comparable. This is a guaranteed way to make the hardened bottom a little more pliable, and soggy. Straight from Gitmo, complete with begging, screaming, and crying, it’s waterboarding.

And, in case you think Smith has gone over the edge, you just have to remember, Trump says it’s Ok.

Note: there will be a myriad of triggers, depending on the attendee. Scott says: “There’s nothing that can prepare them for this.”
