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.
Fetish Performance On And Off the Stage
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.
