Midnight At Dawn
The Expo For Adults
1pm: BDSM 101
BDSM has been around for as long as people have been, although its recognition as a separate form of sexuality is a relatively recent development. From Cave paintings of spankings, instructions on sensual spanking in the Kamasutra, the Victorian's penchant for the taboo and the iconic images of 1950s models like Betty Page, kink has had some exciting developments throughout history. Currently, the 50 Shades craze is bringing more and more people out of the kinky closet and giving them the chance to experiment with power exchange and S/M.
The most important takeaway for participants is knowing that BDSM is what they make it, within their own relationships. They will know where to find further information and education so that they can build and cultivate their own safe, sane and consensual kinky relationships.
4pm: Sensual Spanking
Discover the sensual side of erotic discipline with a hands-on workshop. Learn how to administer a sensual spanking that your lover will remember for all the right reasons. Discover what a difference a good warm-up, pacing and connective touch can make. Everyone is welcome, friend or partner(s) encouraged.
7pm Bondage Basics
Bondage is a large part of BDSM - it's what the “B” stands for, after all!
We will focus on the fundamentals that you need to know to safely engage in floor (or bed) style bondage. Leather restraints, rope and even plastic wrap will make an appearance in a class that teaches you the basics so that you can go home and try it out tonight! Safety & skill will be taught in equal measure to ensure a good time is had by all.
