Building from the Bottoms Up!

Ode2Joy

Bottoming is typically about giving away control, but it also comes with two dreaded words: “personal responsibility.” Whether you’re new to the kink scene or you’ve been around for years, come learn and share ways of getting the most out of your scenes by actively participating not just in the scene itself, but also in the lead up and the post scene interactions. Join Ode2Joy, one of the leaders of Baltimore’s bottoming group, in proving that increasing the knowledge and power of our bottoms increases their safety and the safety of the scene as a whole. Bring your bottoming bag, if you have one, as well as any other resources you actively use. Tops are welcome and encouraged to attend because bottoming education is important for all roles.

Canes: The Master Class

Trailmaster

Fusion is the process of combining two or more elements in a way that either uses heat and / or creates heat. In this case we will be fusing Cane knowledge and Cane skill with needs / wants / triggers / connection and trust in a manner to generate as HOT a scene as possible!

Trailmaster’s Canes 101 and 201 are strongly recommended as pre-requisites for this class.

Cock Sucking and Face Fucking: Getting the Most Out of Your Member

Riverdark & domenique

A dyke cock is as real as any other cock – just real in a different way. Getting your cock sucked, or fucking someone’s face, is enough to make many women come. For those who love to suck cock, or who crave submitting to their mouth being fucked, the pleasure can be just as intense. This workshop covers ways to suck cock in order to maximize the Top’s pleasure while minimizing your discomfort, as well as how to survive getting your face fucked. We will also go over techniques and toys that the Top can use that will maximize a bottom’s ability to take their Top’s cock – as well as techniques for deep throating. Whether you are a cock connoisseur with a silicone one to match every occasion, or the proud owner of a single bio cock, or a combination of both, this workshop has something for you. Bring a cock and/or a sucker (and a towel) for the hands-on… er… mouth-on component! Or just bring your cock for show and tell, and some classroom pointers and practice. Bio cocks welcome.

Cultivating Successful Service Relationships: From the Top

Brett H

Many people in our community love the idea of service, but struggle to make it work. That’s not surprising – accepting service requires a different toolset than sensation-based S/M or power-based D/S. While service can be challenging, it can also be deep, quiet, and profound. This workshop will help tops receive service gracefully and cultivate an environment for successful service. Brett will present several models for service and service relationships, and will provide specific ways you can define and nurture your own service dynamic.

This workshop assumes no previous BDSM experience and is appropriate for all genders and all orientations. Both tops and bottoms are welcome though this workshop will speak primarily from a Top perspective to Tops.

Embracing Sacrifice and Suffering

Brett H & Tris

A great deal of BDSM education operates from the expectation that our sadism should be kept in service to the erotic desires of our bottoms. Sacrifice and suffering flip this script.

Brett and Tris are moved by “play” and relationships grounded in suffering past the bottom’s limits and boundaries. They cultivate D/s relationships where painful sacrifice is part of what the bottom offers the Top – Brett from the Top side, Tris from the bottom side.

In this workshop, we’ll talk about some things that are still forbidden edges, even in our community of sexual outlaws, including but not limited to:

  • Significant spiritual and emotional suffering
  • Torture, fear and blackmail that extends into people’s real lives
  • Behavior modification
  • Sacrifice
  • Humiliation and degradation

We’ll talk about what moves us, and listen to what moves you. This is an opportunity to explore the motivations and consequences of exploring these dark needs.

This workshop assumes previous BDSM experience and comfort with emotional sadism and edgier play. It is appropriate for all genders and all orientations. Both tops and bottoms are welcome, though this workshop will speak primarily from a Top perspective to Tops.

Ethical Predation

Brett H

Do you want your play to feel like violation? Do you identify as prey? As predator? Do you want to play in ways that honor those identities? Do you like your play to feel more like real felonies and less like pretend? Do you want to play dark games that push against or don’t work with moment to moment consent?

We have found ways to negotiate for relationships with imbalanced power and for sadistic pleasure. Let’s talk about how to navigate the murky and dangerous waters of predation. How can you hunt in ways that honor the agency of your quarry? How can you say yes to being prey, giving up the agency that feels good, but keeping the agency you need to be whole later?

Join us for a conversation, dipping our toe into this rich topic. Depending on the group, topics might include:

  • How to navigate the edges of informed consent and ethics for predatory play
  • What we are risking to play these games?
  • Motivations
  • Evaluation of the tools we need
  • How to give and get informed consent
  • How to debrief
  • Risk mitigation
  • How to create the right environment for the suspension of disbelief
  • Others depending on the group’s interests

This workshop assumes previous BDSM experience. It is appropriate for all genders and all orientations. Both tops and bottoms are welcome though this workshop will speak primarily from a Top perspective to Tops.

Fetish Performance On And Off the Stage

Graydancer

Let’s face it, some of us do kink not just for the hot sexy flesh and ropes and leather, but because it looks COOL – and that’s whether we’re performing for a crowd or a partner. There’s a reason we call them “scenes”, after all, and this class uses principles of performance to highlight ways to improve our play regardless of audience. Graydancer & Dr. Eaves will start with a demonstration of how NOT to stage a bondage performance, then discuss the aspects of performance that can apply to the practice of fetish and bondage, using examples and workshopping it with participants. The class will close with an example of what they conside to be adequate performance technique to kick off the FAPCON play party.

Flogging for Pain and Pleasure

Riverdark & domenique

This class has nothing to do with how to flog beautifully. There are no fancy swings in this class. In this class we will teach you how to hit strong and hard, how to bring someone to tears and beyond using just a flogger, and how to use a flogger to create a journey. If you have never picked up a flogger then this class is for you. If you just want to learn how to hit harder, this class is also for you. Bring a flogger and someone to hit for the hands on portion of this class. Limited access to my floggers and slave will be available on a last come, first served basis.

Hypnokink for Sadists

Najalaise

Curious about adding hypnosis to your kink toolset? If you play with SM or bondage, it’s likely that you’ve already encountered people in mental states which are very similar to hypnotic trance. This demo-heavy workshop will show you how to use existing kinky skills to create hallucinated experiences, make training faster, and more! We’ll also discuss negotiation, rapport, and other details of ensuring that it’s a great experience for all involved.

Jealousy Is Not A Crime: Troubleshooting Broken Polyamory

The Ferrett

The question is, how do you figure out what’s wrong… and how do you repair the faults so that you emerge stronger and saner?

Kittens with String: Drills for Rope Handling and Efficiency

Ojipan & GoodMostTimes

Patterns in rope are beautiful and are the main things taught to beginners so they have a benchmark to show progress. But patterns can also be time consuming and tedious to complete leaving both partners bored and frustrated. In this 80 minute class you’ll learn some tips and techniques for moving your rope fluidly and efficiently. Walk away with several new methods for practicing your new handling skills. And bottoms: your participation and feedback is vital!

Let’s Make a Scene, from Top to Bottom

Ode2Joy

This class is an interactive, improvisational, “choose your own rope-venture” type of class, showing the beginning, middle, and end of a rope scene, and the communication between rope top and bottom as it progresses. Participants will tie between lessons and then have brief discussions on how it went, including, how do initial choices of a tie affect a scene? What to do when you tie yourself into a figurative corner? How to get unstuck and how to change direction? A running bottom commentary will also occur throughout the lessons. Finally, the class will finish as a scene does in showing different ways a scene can end, and how to make it interesting for both top and bottom. Skill level: Multiple skill levels (beginners will do floor or partials only, intermediate and advanced can go up to full suspensions)

  • Beginners will do floorwork or partial suspensions only.

More Than Skin Deep

Najalaise

Once you’re comfortable putting needles in skin, what if you want to go further? This class will highlight multiple locations on the body which are both easy to locate and safe to stab with needles. If you’re interested in causing more pain, curious what bones feel like when poked, or just enamored with fearful reactions, these are tricks you’ll want to learn. This class assumes some knowledge of play piercing.

My Favourite Things

Riverdark & domenique

What do you get when you mix hot demos with speed negotiation spiced with stories of scenes gone wrong? You get a fun, lively, and interactive class that is guaranteed to enliven your day.

From breath to pain to knives to fear, we will try a little bit of everything in this class that is meant to be just as much fun as informative!

Painful Prerequisites: Face, Fingers, Throat, and Toes…That’s Where All the Torture Rope Goes!

BDSLR & Ode2Joy

This sadistic rope class includes BDSLR walking participants step by step through four specific torture ties: a face mask tie, a microbondage fingers tie, a microbondage toe tie, and his favorite self-choking tie. These are all fairly strenuous ties, but ones that can easily be tailored to the bottom’s endurance and pain tolerance. He will demo each tie, including upline placement and safety concerns, and then participants will get a chance to torture their bottoms or themselves with them. He will continue the class by showing how the ties can be used in a partial predicament scene. Simultaneously, Ode2Joy will cover the “painful prerequisites,” important bottoming concepts regarding pain and pain processing, for each tie to increase bottom awareness and understanding when doing said sadistic rope.

Saline Infusions: One Way to Stay Hydrated!

Sir Electric

Have you ever been curious about what larger breasts would look like, the feeling of inflating your scrotum to three times its normal size, have puffier labia, or really accentuate any other body part? Have you always wanted to try saline, but never been comfortable without instruction? This may be the class for you! Sir Electric will be briefly reviewing piercing procedures and clean/dirty fields, covering equipment and set-up, anatomy, piercing, and saline infusion. The class will be a combination of power-point (promise it won’t remind you of school too much!) and hands-on experience guided by Sir Electric. This is an intermediate level class; participants must be comfortable with piercing and management of clean/dirty areas.

Soul to Sole

Tris

You’ve seen boot blacking at various events, however have you ever seen a boot worship scene? Come with us down the dark and and twisty road of boot worship! We will cover: What is boot worship? How do I start/ask/negotiate? How do you transition boot worship into boot play? What is boot play? What is stomping/grinding? Where and how can I kick them, hurt them, stomp on them? … and lets face it – a class isn’t good without demos!

Strangulation & Asphyxiation: A Study in Breath Control

Riverdark & domenique

Many people play with chocking and/or suffocation. Yet so often when we put anything over someone’s face that restricts the flow of air, or anything tight around someone’s neck, the cry “Breath Play” rings out as though it was murder most foul, or a universal safe word. Instead of lumping them together in a dark back room with “Dangerous Edge Play, Do Not Enter” written in blood on the door, let’s separate out these different strands and look at them in the light of day. What about them are unsafe and why? Is there anything that is safe about them and why? And, most importantly, what are some fun things we can do with them?!

This Doesn’t Feel Right: Discovering Likes, Dislikes, Preferences, and Other Ropey Things in Foundational Ties

Ode2Joy

This class for rope bottoms (and tops!) will focus on when things do and don’t feel right in foundational ties. Subjects like tension, placements, and the very technical “other ropey things” will be discussed as they apply to rope bottom knowledge, safety, and risk reduction in regards to nerve damage and other rope risks. Development of bottom preference for where foundational ties such as the box tie chest harness and chest harnesses in general, futomomos, thigh cuffs, and hip harnesses should lie on the body will also be addressed, in addition to weight loading preferences for suspension. Rope bottoms are encouraged to bring rope tops, and rope tops encouraged to attend either with their tying partner or solo. Rope tops should be able to easily tie a box tie, futomomo, and hip harness, and both tops and bottoms should be comfortable with suspension.

Lecture and Hands-On Practice
Rigger/bottom pairs are ideal, but everyone is welcome.
Intermediate and Advanced.
  • Rope for practice.

One thing’s guaranteed in every poly community: eventually, you’re going to run into your exes.
