Professional exhibitionist motormouth Tina Horn will open your mind to dirty dynamics and have you cursing like a sailor in no time. You’ll get a chance to practice nasty talk, learn how to get in touch with your own filthy fantasies and the fantasies of others, and experience the excitement that words can unlock in and outside the boudoir or dungeon.

People of all genders, partnerings, and desires welcome! Class will include a live demonstration that’s guaranteed to make you blush!

Thursday, November 5, 2015 from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM
Admission is $30/person.
Tickets are available in-store or online!

Sex, at its best, is a ritual. Sometimes when people’s sex lives become tedious, monotonous, or boring, they may disengage or even think something is wrong with their relationship or with their own sexuality. In actuality, identifying this pattern can indicate that all one’s sex life needs is a jolt of creativity! In this workshop, we’ll identify some red flags and explore ways to get creative about sexuality, honor it as a ritual and make it something that excites and/or reinvigorates us! We’ll share ideas for ritualizing our erotic lives and participants will develop a sexy ritual they can try alone, with a partner or in a group setting.

This event is being held in conjuction with the release of Amy Jo’s new book Woman on Fire: 9 Elements to Wake Up Your Erotic Energy, Personal Power, and Sexual Intelligence. Keep an eye on her website for more info on her book release party!

Have you been dreaming of tying your partner up for some kinky, restrained fun? Or perhaps you’ve been wishing to be tied up too, happy to relinquish control? Come find out how at Rope Bondage 101, an introductory, hands-on workshop for novices who are interested in learning the basic ties of rope bondage.

Participants in this class will learn basic rope safety, practice wrist and ankle ties, and view a demonstration of more elaborate torso harnesses. Couples are welcome to come together; if you attend as an individual, be prepared to work with another individual rope partner or assistant. Everyone is encouraged to tie and be tied, so please be willing to play both roles with your workshop partner! Participants will remain fully clothed throughout the class, so dress in comfortable clothing, like you would to a yoga class. Safety and consent are our first priority and will be discussed at the beginning of the class with handouts on BDSM protocol.

Yin Quan is a BDSM writer, educator, and leather lifestyle Top. She has presented for The Eulenspiegal Society, The LeatherMan NYC, Lesbian Sex Mafia, and numerous leather conferences in NYC and San Francisco.
