Decorative Rope with Sir Wieland and cat
Thursday, January 19, 8:30 pm
Sir Wieland is back to kick off our winter. With his deep knowledge and friendly teaching style, his classes are always wildly popular.

In this class, we'll take basic ties and turn them into decorative pieces of art on the body. With a few ideas, we hope to inspire you to use your imagination to develop your own ties.

We'll cover an ankle tie, a toe tie (is your pedicure up to date?), chest ties and karadas.

Bring rope, and wear fitted clothing so the rope doesn't tangle in your clothes. If you're not sure what kind of rope, or how much, just bring what you have. We'll have rope available here for your use, and some for sale after the class. Also, bring your creative mind.

$15 per person or $25 per couple-- sign up with a friend or partner and save! Register here.

Warm up for Valentine's Day with a nurturing morning of partner massage. Learn how to improve intimacy and reduce stress with your partner through massage.

Men Below the Belt with Sophia Chase

This class starts by exploring the male anatomy and our feelings about it.

We’ll even show you how to put a condom on without using your hands! This is a fun class that takes sexual pleasure seriously. Great for any woman who wants to be more confident in her man-pleasuring skills.

Dominance for Nervous Beginners with Lady Sophia
Saturday, February 25, 8:30 pm
We all know that real dominants were born knowing they were kinky tops. They're beyond reproach, serious in their scenes, never make mistakes and... they don't exist! There are as many ways to be a fantastic dominant (and submissive) as there are kinksters. This Dominance 101 style workshop will help you to figure out what type of top, switch or sub you are. We'll cover kinky archetypes, and how they help and hinder us, basic negotiation skills to have a safe, sane, consensual and fun scene, how to communicate your interests to your play partner and even a few spanking, bondage and sensory play tips for good measure. This workshop is open to people of all genders, sexual orientations and experience levels, though well seasoned players may find themselves familiar with the content.
