Many of you have attended conferences where someone speaks at you for hours.

This is NOT that. Instead, we are inviting kinksters (and kink-curious folks!) to gather and create your own knowledge sharing.

This is a special event combining a mini-workshop led by Max and an afternoon of kinky unconferencing (a.k.a. "open space technologies") led by Eri Kardos.

What is the Schedule for this Event?

At 9am we’ll gather in Max’s dungeon for the Opening Circle.

From 9:30am - 11:30am Max will share some of his personal knowledge on a topic that the class votes for beforehand. Possible workshop topics include Hot Negotiation, How to Push, Making D/S Work, Hot Rope, Intro to Kink/BDSM, and Leather Culture. Your vote will shape how the morning looks.

From 11:30am - 12:15pm we will provide a catered lunch and a chance to chat and build community.

At 12:15pm we’ll reconvene and Eri will explain the concept of Open Space Technologies/Unconferences and how the afternoon will work.

From 12:30pm - 5:30pm we will move into our unconference sessions. There will be 6 breakout session areas and 3 sessions blocks - thus there will be around 18 unique sessions offered in 1 afternoon!

At 5:30 we'll do our Closing Circle. This wraps up our time together and is a crucial part of the experience.

The event ends at 6:00 pm

What Makes This Experience Awesome?

Guiding Principles

  • Whoever comes are the right people.
  • Whenever it starts is the right time. Spirit and creativity do not run on the clock.
  • Wherever it happens is the right place. Space is opening everywhere all the time. Please be conscious and aware.
  • Whatever happens is the only thing that could have happened. Once something has happened, it's done, and no amount of fretting, complaining or otherwise rehashing can change that. Move on.
  • When it's over, it's over.

The Law of 2 Feet

If you are neither benefiting from nor contributing to a conversation/presentation, take your two feet and go somewhere you can.

You have the freedom to move about and participate in what moves you, free from offending the presenters.

No need to get bored or only attend 3 sessions - you can jump around as much or as little as you desire.

Choose-Your-Own-Adventure

This day together is a chance to create your own experience, share your own learning, and choose your own adventure. Along the way you have the opportunity to connect with others and ask tough questions or share something you are passionate about in a safe space.

Previous events have featured breakout sessions like:

  • Erotic Hypnosis
  • Fisting
  • Needle play
  • Owning a Sex-Positive Business
  • Scene Negotiation

Logistics

A handout will be provided to help you find more great kink resources around Seattle.

Please bring pen and paper for notes, and a cushion, folding chair or small pillow to sit on.

This workshop assumes no previous experience, and is appropriate for all genders and orientations. You can bring a partner or a group of friends, but coming alone is completely comfortable and appropriate.

Attendance is limited. Buy your tickets here to reserve your spot.
