Electric Wand Basics
with Nyx
Thursday, April 21, 2022 at 8:30 pm

A violet wand is guaranteed to turn heads at any dungeon and in any bedroom. Are you interested in learning the basics? Sex and kink educator Nyx will go over proper use and safety basics of these electrifying tools. There are a few critical differences between violet wands and neon wands but don’t fret--Nyx will break those down too! She will give you the facts so you can decide whether this type of electroplay is right for you.

Nyx’s adventures in BDSM come from the top, bottom, and in between. She became active in the Milwaukee kink scene in 2010 and has been reading, studying, playing, and/or ranting about it ever since. Nyx also works at the Tool Shed on Milwaukee’s east side and shares their mission of providing medically accurate and socially aware information on topics of sex and gender in a non-judgmental atmosphere to anyone who visits the store.

This class is welcoming to people of genders, orientations, sizes and abilities.

This is a free event, hosted on Zoom. Online events are moderated: check out our online events policies here.

Ethical Indulgences:
Hosting Inclusive Play Parties for Every Body
with Lyndzi Miller
Friday, May 20, 2022 at 8:30 pm

Have you ever fantasized about having a threesome, swapping partners with another couple, jumping into an orgy, or hosting a play party? Lots of people love the fantasy, but few know how to make it a reality. There are many ways to get it right - and exponentially more ways to get it wrong!

Tool Shed Staffer Lyndzi Miller will teach you how to host an ethical, sex-positive, and consent-focused play party (and what all of that means), how to get involved in sex-positive and queer communities, and how to create a welcoming, non-creepy, space to have amazing, sexy fun.

Lyndzi Miller has been a sexual educator at The Tool Shed: An Erotic Boutique since 2012, and is their current assistant manager. She established the Milwaukee Poly Group in 2008, facilitating discussion and support group meetings every month since. She also hosts the bi-weekly podcast, "Polyamory Uncensored," interviewing ethically non-monogamous folks on their polyamorous journeys. She is an avid knitter, a mother, a burlesque dancer, and a huge geek.

This is a free event, hosted on Zoom. Online events are moderated: check out our online events policies here.

The link to this online event will be posted here, and on our Facebook page, on the day of the event.
