Come join us for our Third Saturday educational class: Playing w/Intention and Connection with @Flickerflame

Flicker derives energy and connection from pain, yours or hers. His play style ranges from lyrical to brutal and rarely requires more furniture than a wall and a floor (wall optional). She enjoys thoughtful conversations about BDSM: if you have played with her, she has probably asked you why you do what you do. He has been active in the BDSM community since 2007 and has taught in a variety of venues in Ohio and California.

BDSM can be a deeply intimate experience, whether you are playing with a long-term partner or someone you just met. Among other topics, this class covers:

  • Theatre skills! Using touch, distance, breath and eye contact to create connection with different emotional tones. "Intimate and Connected" isn't necessarily soft and sensual.
  • Letting your initial contact, your check-ins, your play position serve as your intention
  • The risks of emotional intimacy
  • The role of bottoms and submissives in establishing intimacy

This class uses a lecture and demonstrations format. To highlight the fact that highly connected scene can be created using any tools, this class will focus on scenes most engaged in by beginners: impact play and rough body play.
