Graydancer

Graydancer has been teaching, performing, and advocating for kink and BDSM for over a decade. He professionally rigs, photographs, shoots, edits, and consults in web, video, and social media for several clients ranging from Kink.com to the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom to the Kink Academy.

You can also hear Graydancer as a guest on various podcasts such as Polyamory Weekly and Dart’s Domain, or his own Ropecast (the longest-running kink podcast on the web). Gray was featured on Our America with Lisa Ling: 50 Shades of Kink, which aired in January of 2013 on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

While his roots lie in bondage, Gray’s focus has evolved over time to subjects such as power exchange relationships, cigar play, and the educational aspects of kink. He was the first to apply Open Space principles to a kink event, creating GRUEs that have been held at over 45 locations in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Currently he resides in the Bondage Capital of the World, Madison, WI where he is working on becoming a total GILF.

Dr. Eaves

Dr Eaves aims to co-create a world (both internal and external) that is more intentional, more honest, and somehow more kind. She is a teacher, a published author, an artist, and a presenter, but her biggest passion lies in the intersection of story telling and co-design for the purpose of self discovery. Dr. Eaves approaches her vanilla and kink life through both a critical and a feminist lens, and does so with a touch of irreverence and a strong commitment to pushing against the margins.

Poly & D/s Relationships

Both polyamory and power exchange relationships have complexities that can be wonderful, frustrating, or even both at the same time. In this class Dr. Eaves and Graydancer – two people who are enthusiastic about poly, D/s, and each other – will talk about some of the tools to manage these kinds of relationships in nurturing and sexy ways from beginning to end.

Military-Style Bondage

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.
