This class is about temporary surface piercing. The presenter will explain materials, technique, and safety. This is an advanced class and participants are in no way encouraged to attempt play piercing on their own without one-on-one coaching from an experienced piercer. However, understanding what goes into a piercing scene and what you can get out of it can help you determine if you are interested in pursuing play piercing on your own.

I’m going to beat the Devil out of you! - Cathartic Scenes
There are scenes that make a difference in your life and the life of your partner(s). Cathartic scenes are described. The scenes are often unplanned and indirect, however they can be planned and the true goal achieved without missteps or difficulties. The questions answered will be: How do I know I need a cathartic scene? Can this happen by accident? What are the potential problems? When do I know where to stop? A short demonstration of one such scene will be performed. There is a handout for all attendees.)
 
We’re going to let the animal loose - Primal Scenes
Primal energy is the inner animal fighting, struggling to be released and set free. When the growling settles down and the scratching stops, what is left is somehow more pure and more real than before. But this is not something to be done casually even though it is the most spontaneous of all actions. Safety and control concerns are addressed in this class, and spotters and personal injuries are discussed.

Ever been curious about just what that couple across from you at the restaurant has going for them – why he’s laughing, she’s blushing and trying to hide her face? You wonder what exciting secret they share? It could be nothing but the ordinary – or it could be that he’s whispered to her many scintillating and wonderfully sexy tasks throughout their date. They are engaging in public role play – and while nobody is noticing, it will be a night she won’t soon forget.

Polyamory Without Attachment

Non-attachment in relationships is not indifference or apathy towards others. It’s an absence of fear which comes from a sense of impending loss.

Being overly accommodating to fears and insecurities can give us the illusion of stability and control. In relation to intimacy, however, this is what often destroys love.

Non-monogamy may be the rejection of sexual and romantic exclusivity, however we may carry much of our societal expectations and habits of monogamy into our relationships.

Exploring polyamory without attachment may help alleviate jealousy and destructive behaviors, as well as build trust with your partners. What does your chosen identity mean to others? What about in a group setting?

Workshops by John Pendal

How to Block Pain… And how to Break Blocks
How and why do our bodies feel pain? Why do some of us enjoy it so much and what could you get out of learning to block pain? What techniques do people use to process pain or block it completely? And how do you break a block that your play partner is using? If you want a fun & knowledgeable introduction to pain management, or just want to see a kinky Brit be on the receiving end of some "thud" and "sting", then this is the class for you.
 
Leadership, Burnout, and Splits, Oh My!
Why do so many leather and kink clubs suffer from splits and discord? Why are so many leather leaders facing burnout, and how do we make leadership roles more appealing for the next generation? Using role playing and audience participation, we'll look at several ways of running leather clubs and see which group copes best with a mole in their midst determined to stir up trouble.

 Unarmed BDSM: Things you can do with just the human body
There is a myth that to be a good SM Top you need to have huge toy bags full of expensive equipment, or access to a tool-shop to make your own gear. But what happens when you meet someone hot and you only have the space behind the coke machine on the 7th floor to come up with something creative? This session is for people on a limited budget or who would like to be able to enjoy a spontaneous scene without having their toy-bag with them. It's also invaluable for those who fly internationally from the UK and can't take many items through security - and then find that the airline has lost their luggage anyway. Together we'll explore the many different kinds of SM which can be practiced with just the human body: no lube, gloves, toys or any other equipment allowed.

From silent diseases to life-threatening health conditions this conference will provide guests with valuable information for those living with certain diseases and disabilities while giving advice on how they can safely enjoy BDSM play. Useful for guests who live with or suffer from Diabetes, Asthma, IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease), Fibromyalgia or Epilepsy.

Positive Discipline: Working together for a more positive dynamic.
Positive Discipline is about encouraging good behavior, an alternative to the common punishment and reward method we often see in BDSM. In this conference we discuss the differences between Discipline and Punishment, reasons why encouragement may be a better motivator than punishment. We provide suggestions on how to improve communication, removing fear and involving oneself in a supportive role as well as methods to ensure that those in D-s or M-s relationships are working together for a more positive dynamic.
