Saturday Daytime Classes
1:30-2:45 Ranged Impact Play: getting close by striking from afar (With TJ and Slave Amanda)
Range impact play can range from gentle sensory flogging to the sting of a single tail. It can be a tool in various different scenes or a scene unto itself. This ranged impact play class will work to show the safety parameters for RACK based impact play along with how to work it into some scenes. We will cover most of the basic tools and discuss how they vary in both usage and in feel. We will demonstrate healthy and safe usage of the various toys and will allow the participants to handle and swing various implements shown in the class. Participants will not be allowed to use the tools on the demo bottoms unfortunately due to safety concerns. This class is open to everyone regardless of gender expression, sex, and sexual orientation.
Slave Amanda (pronouns she/her/hers) is bisexual, polyamorous, and a masochist with a passion to discuss Leather, kink, consent, and polyamory with kinksters & vanillas.

A sadistic, pan-, poly, Dom he basically enjoy anything that can be construed as libidinous: leather, gear, impact play, knock out play, sensory deprivation, electro, torture, wax, groups, exhibitionism/public play, and good ole' fashioned sadism. Outside the world of kink he is an avid reader, gamer, music buff, all around hedonist, and ordained minister for those of you wishing to get married or buried or both.

Saturday evening class:
The Science of Pain with TJ and Slave Amanda
Pain is the joy of the sadist and the thrill of a true masochist. In S&M scenes, pain is both the driving force of the play as well as the reward. But, how do you make it last? Our bodies are evolutionarily adapted to mitigate and escape pain. So, how do you keep it going in a scene? This class will discuss and show how to maintain pain levels so the body doesn’t shut down. It will work to explain how pain works in the body in hopes that, for those of us who enjoy it, we can find ways to maintain a healthy level of pain for a prolonged period without actual harm.
This class is open to everyone regardless of gender expression, sex, and sexual orientation.
Sunday Rope Intensive (10am-5pm)
This will be an all day rope intensive concentrating on two separate suspension ties: an Agura and a Strappado.

Bootblacking 101 with Lorelei Siren

For many of us, our leather is an extension of ourselves and needs be maintained to extend its life. This class will review basic tools, products, and techniques so that you can lovingly tend to the leather in your life.
Lorelei strives to create an interactive and encouraging setting. In this class there is a hands-on, show and tell style review of the products and tools. Followed by a demonstration of basic cleaning, conditioning, and polishing. The group is encouraged to move around to get a better look and ask questions throughout the process.
Lorelei Siren, the 2019 Ohio Bootblack, is a service-oriented, sadomasochist who joined the public kink community in 2013. Though extensively trained in many areas of service, one of Lorelei’s greatest passions is the sensuous, meticulous ritual of bootblacking.

OPEN SATURDAY 12-6PM
Daphne Matthews is a former journalist who has been involved in various BDSM communities for more than 15 years, including time in leadership. But it is her lifetime of support for Cleveland sports teams that qualifies her as a True Masochist. She is the author of the dark romance Gambler Series, and the lighter spinoff, Pairings.
She also creates chocolate delicacies and nerdy/naughty cross stitch designs. There will definitely be a little something to tempt everyone at the Tempting Sweets table.
Elizabeth has two main focuses within her art – portraiture and bold, conceptual pieces (usually centered on the nude figure) created from the overflow of her emotions and convictions. Her portraits range from pen and ink drawings on paper to large oil paintings on canvas, depending on the project. The more conceptual pieces are mostly oil on canvas – with some exploration into embroidery – which allows her to translate the intensity of emotion appropriate for each piece, both with thicker layers of paint and also bolder, more striking colors. With both focuses the goal is to capture people and moments that reveal more of her heart and desires and the hearts and desires of those who commission the art.
She believes that sharing our hearts – being vulnerable – can be empowering, and it’s that authenticity that helps us to then connect with and strengthen each other. Her art strives to be a visual representation of those bonds.”
Emie, on Fet as emie-lou2, (pronouns she/her) started in the kink scene in 2016, And was quickly drawn to the flame of fire play, and started her journey as a fire top later that year.
Her love of rope led her down the path to the evils of coconut rope, and her first coconut flogger was made soon after. She’s been involved in the community as well, running the successful C.O.K.E munch in Canton for several years.
Emie is a rope top who’s happy to share her knowledge with others, and you can often see her at Smart working on some sort of self-suspension when she’s not introducing new folks to the fun of fire play.
When she’s not at Smart events, needle play, reading, beach combing for pretty glass, and trying to keep her partner’s houseplants alive are a few of her passions.
She’s decided to share her passion in more tangible ways, so if you’re looking for a uniquely nasty flogger made of coconut fiber, or hand made fire wands in different sizes and colors, come find her at the flea!
