Age Differences and the Challenges That Go With It

Master Don and orja are a Master/slave couple that have a fairly significant age difference between them. What type of challenges does a couple like this face? How do they deal with it? How have they dealt with illness and the natural progression of aging? How do they integrate their likes and dislikes that come from being 24 years apart? How do you form such a close bond with someone from a different generation? Master Don and orja share how they do it and some of the struggles they’ve been through over the years of their relationship together.

Presented by:
Master Don & orja

 

Blue Collar Master/White Collar slave

Take a journey with us and discover how we reinvented our dynamic through communication and renegotiation.

Presented by:

Control vs. Authority

Master George and slave bren have wrestled with the questions of control for a decade as they have built their M/ dynamic from scratch. In doing so, they peeled back the levels of confusion that control concepts offer, and discovered that control has a big – but surprising – part to pay in the lifestyle of power exchange relationships.

Master George and slave bren will share with you their perspectives, experiences, and discoveries about control: how it’s used and misused, understood and misunderstood in the M/s and D/s world’ They will offer you tools on how to keep control under control from both the Top and bottom perspective, and how to use control to attain balance.

Presented by:
Master George & slave bren

 

Faith and Trust in the Master/slave Dynamic

Master George and slave bren have explored the complex realm of trust and faith in ways that are both unique, but also commonly shared by so many others who try to develop Master/slave relationships. They have weathered the challenges that can attack trust and faith, and stand ready to share these experiences and reveal what they have learned.

Topics covered include:

  • What do we mean by trust and faith?
  • How to recognize key signs in yourself that you have trust issues
  • Analyzing trust and protecting one’s safety
  • Baggage, Butcher Bills, and Balance
  • Exercises to enhance trust and faith
  • Who will be there to catch me?? (you will!)
  • Q&A — share your experiences and discussion

FINISHING TOUCHES: What To Do When Your M/s Relationship Is Not Enough

When it comes to relationships, each of us has specific needs. It’s widely understood that those in more conventional relationships cannot be expected to meet all of their partners’ needs; one can only guess how much more that applies to those who engage in relationships rooted in consensual dominance and submission. What do you do if your Master/slave relationship doesn’t satisfy all of your needs? How can adjustments and accommodations be made without damaging the relationship or threatening the individuals who comprise it? Who initiates the changes, and who does the adjusting and accommodating? Using candid examples from their own relationship, Master Skip and slave Rick will reveal why acknowledging what’s missing in your life need not pose a threat to your M/s relationship, and how restructuring the relationship so that your needs or the needs of your Master/slave are more fully met can strengthen the D/s dynamic between you.

Presented by:
Master Skip Chasey & slave rick

 

If one slave is good, two are even better, right

Once we get comfortable with relationship with our slave, we often times look at expanding our family. We might be under the assumption that both arms of the V will be handled the same, with the same positive result. If only it was that simple.

This an audience participation class, so bring your own experiences and questions.

Presented by:
Master John

 

It’s Complicated: How we built our ideal M/s relationship under less-than-ideal circumstances

When we first met, the attraction and chemistry were instant and mutual. We both felt the spark and we eagerly began exploring the path towards ownership. There was just one problem; actually there were lots! Ellen was in a long-term, open relationship and had 6 years of experience, while Michael was a virgin who had never even experimented with kink. Ellen’s busy career as a TV producer didn’t hold a candle to the barriers brought on by Michael’s vocation as a Roman Catholic Priest! Against all odds—including secrecy, distance, families, careers, other relationships, and our own physical and emotional struggles—we managed to create a dynamic that fulfills us beyond our fantasies. This class will cover the obstacles we faced, the mistakes we made, the lessons we learned, and ultimately our path towards success in creating and living our own, complicated version of “happily ever after.”

Presented by:
Mr. Ellen and Pup Michael

 

Layers of Poly Hierarchy

Many of us in the Master slave community participate in hierarchical relationships with more than one person. While having multiple partners in your life can bring joy and fulfillment, the path can also be tricky to navigate, particularly when we add power or authority exchange. Ms Rhonda and tomo will share their thoughts and experience as we examine the choice to have multiple hierarchical partners during this moderated participatory discussion. Please join us and discuss different combinations of poly and hierarchy; what is necessary to have healthy poly relationships within a Master slave dynamic; common poly and hierarchy challenges and solutions; and the inter-related dynamics between the layers.

Presented by:
Ms Rhonda & tomo

 

M/s in the Apocalypse

Perhaps zombies have overrun the world, aliens have invaded, global warming has escalated into an ice age, or even worse...things in your world have gone to total sh$% and you don’t know how to fix it. Join us as we discuss our personal experiences with the apocalypse in our M/s. We will discuss how to make survival plans, when to shelter, when to run, and how to find joy in the worst of times.

Master Todd & slave elizabeth

 

Open Secrets of Long Term Master/slave Dynamics

There are a great numbers of Master/slave relationships which are less than a year old. Unfortunately, the number of M/s relationships begin to decline starts declining with the passage of time....5 years, 10 years, 15 years, and beyond.

Master Malik and save Cathy have been in a Master/slave dynamics for 15 years now. Was it easy? HAHA!

Did I catch her before she tried to run off the door…naked? YES!

Did she bodily stopped me before I even got dressed? Hell YES!

Through heated discussions, even arguments (we are human first.... and yes...Master and slaves do argue...just in a different tone), cries, anger and so many emotional roller coasters we have thrived and stayed vibrant.

Have you ever stretched the rubber band to its limit before just breaking? Try that in real life dynamics and see what happens.

We have done it. How?

It is so simple, yet so complicated and that is what we would like to share.

Presented by:
Master Malik and slave Cathy

 

Perpetual Dynamic

One of the challenges a D/s couple can face is the ability to be persistent in all areas of the couple’s life. For most of us this means compromising on the fantasy. In this class we will be exploring how to extend your scenes into a seamless dynamic, which is practically invisible to the vanilla eye. Come share your experiences and take away some new ideas for enriching your power exchange relationship in ways that transcend the bedroom.

Presented by:
Ms. Brenda & slave arcane

 

Power Exchange as Relational Antacid

Does your relationship suffer from Attitudinal Lethargy? Blockage of the Informational Tract? Have you or a loved one ever suffered from Spontaneous Interpersonal Combustion? If so, you may be suffering from B.U.R.Ps (Big Ugly Relationship Problems)!

Master Jon and slave amendah, after years of research, present their four-component formula for Relational Antacid: Time, Communication, Investment, and Humor. This simple, easy-to-apply remedy requires no prescription, is available everywhere, and can be taken at any time. Come and get your sample dosage today!

Powerful Minds - Masters and Mental Challenges

Can someone with depression, autism or other mental disabilities be the Master, Dominant or “Big Letter” in a relationship dealing with power, authority, control? How does one go about constructing such a relationship, living it with the challenges that come from a mental health disability?

In this class, Master Michael will share his experiences of living as a Master with ASD and depression. He’ll share his successes, challenges, learning opportunities (in other words, the times he made mistakes!) and open the class up to those who also wish to share or ask questions. Master Michael is not a doctor or trained therapist, and does not play one on the Internet, but he has a lifetime of experiences with living M/s and with mental health disabilities.

Master Michael & slave angie

 

REFINING FIRE: The Role of SM in Master/slave Relationships

While engaging in SM is not a prerequisite for a Master/slave relationship, the judicious incorporation of SM into the relationship can be a powerful tool for the growth of both the slave and the Master alike. However, contrary to the stereotype SM need not—and in most cases should not—be used as a form of punishment. What, then, must be a Master’s primary intention for using SM in this context? Which SM practices have the greatest potential for deepening a slave’s submission and obedience? How does “safe, sane and consensual” factor into the equation? Join Master Skip as he examines the many opportunities and challenges that arise when, in consensual Mastery and slavery, SM shifts from being a radical sexual practice to a legitimate developmental practice.

Presented by:
Master Skip Chasey & slave rick

 

Rituals

In this class, we illustrate why protocols and rituals in M/s are not a way to micromanage, but a way to help the relationship blossom into something much greater and of deeper value than role playing.

We will discuss the specifics of protocols and rituals, including:

  • developing a manual and devising key phrasing that is tailored to the dynamics of the varieties of M/s relationships
  • putting these standards into place
  • overcoming self-consciousness –and discovering the “flip” moment when the protocol becomes second nature
  • contracts and reviewing of protocols, to enhancing them and ensuring they do not become either stale or routine.

We will also cover how these protocols can be done while surrounded by the vanilla world, without them being aware, and how protocols can put the “train back on the tracks” when the pressures of the outside world becomes a distraction.

Presented by:
Master George & slave bren

 

The Buck Stops Where?

This discussion is about the concept of “Ownership”. Many of us practice it but just what does it truly entail? Is it as scary as it sounds or is it really a healthy attitude for a sustainable relationship?

We will look at what I think of as “Extreme ownership”, from both the Masters perspective and the slaves. Sir Gareth has always believed that when things went wrong it was always the Master’s fault, having done something or not done something that created the situation. That attitude has served him well but isn’t always a popular view. “You see the weight of the world won’t fit on my shoulders and sometimes the slave just screws up.”

Join us as we look at ownership as a relationship choice, and how we can use it to enhance our M/s dynamic.

Presented by:
Sir Gareth and slave toi

 

THE MONASTIC MODEL OF M/s RELATIONSHIPS: Slavery as a Spiritual Path

The models for Master/slave relationships are as varied as the individuals who comprise them. In the monastic model, which is the model that most strongly resonates with the presenter and his Master, there are striking parallels between the Master/slave relationship and that of the disciple and his/her Guru. For some, these similarities—from the slave’s/disciple’s first sense of their calling, to the vow of obedience to the Master’s protocol or the Guru’s teachings, to the safety and grounding found in presenting at the Master’s boots or in prostration at the Guru’s lotus feet—make the path of slavery much more than sexual pleasure or fantasy fulfillment. When approached from this consciousness slavery is nothing less than a sacred path to union with the Divine.

Presented by:
Master Skip Chasey & slave rick

 

What’s in a name? Alternative Titles for Hierarchical Relationships

In our community, we are often faced with the challenge of limited language. The dictionary does not cover our interpretation or application of the words Master or slave. In this class we will look at the various words we can use for the roles of “Master” and “slave”. We will examine how these words may fit associated responsibilities, skill sets, and personalities in the Master slave dynamic. Ms. Rhonda and tomo will share the concept of Master and samurai, which they use in their dynamic. They will explain why they feel these titles best represent who they are and how they are used. In opening our minds, a new use for words may be found that feels like a more purposeful and appropriate fit in our unique Master slave dynamics.

Ms Rhonda & tomo

 

"You Want Me To Do What?": An Introduction to Protocols

A sub falls into step behind their Dom like it's second-nature. A Master says a single word and the slave makes things miraculously happen. And you say to yourself, "That's great, but I can't do that myself." Actually, you can: It's not random, and it's not magic. It's a carefully managed system of practices and behaviors that we call "Protocol".

In this class, attendees will be shown basic language, applications, and examples of this essential, yet often vaguely-defined, concept in order to help integrate or refine it into their own relationships.

Presented by:
Master Jon & slave amendah

 

In, Out, and Back Again: A slave’s Journey

What happens when a powerful Master/slave relationship comes to an end, but the relationship between the two people is as strong as ever? How does a slave continue to feed his or her soul in the presence of the former Master? Does slave heart ever go away?

This is what happened to Master Steve’s slave kirk in 2007. This process involved a spiritual journey as well as connection through SM and the Butchmanns Experience. This workshop will be an open discussion of the issues and possible solutions.

Presented by:
slave kirk

 

Mastery, Dominance & The Inner Critic

Are you your worst critic? Are you harder on yourself than anyone else could ever hope to be? In your personal pursuit of excellence, do you criticize, second-guess and review your thoughts, words or decisions long after the action has been taken?

We have people in our lives that have literally given themselves to us, who depend on our wisdom, our guidance, our decisions...The stakes are higher.. An Inner Critic that is out of control causes internal suffering for us as Masters, Mistresses and Dominants and can have major negative consequences for our lives and relationships; Join Master Obsidian & slave namaste in revealing techniques to engage The Critic in a positive way and learn to use its power to energize and build your M/s dynamic!

Power Exchange and Authenticity

For many of us, our initial discovery of the world of BDSM felt like ‘coming home’. Unfortunately for too many in our community this feeling of liberation eventually fades, replaced with a unique sort of prison as we struggle with personal authenticity. As we become aware of individuals in our local scene who exhibit skills and qualities that we lack, many feel the pressure to; adopt affectations & attitudes inconsistent with who we really are inside, avoid uncomfortable truths about ourselves, and invent histories and experiences in order to be more comfortable around our peers. Master Obsidian and slave namaste explore the six dimensions of truthfulness that form the foundations of authenticity and explain how we can utilize the power of sincerity to unify our inward and outward selves to reclaim and energize our experience of this lifestyle.

Presented by:
Master Obsidian & slave namaste

Tiny Service, Big Impact:  When Size Doesn’t Matter

When you think of “service” in a Master/slave relationship, what comes to mind?  A “high leather dinner?”  Your home as Downton Abby, complete with a butler?  Your slave as personal valet, available at a moment’s notice?

Service is integral in maintaining a M/s dynamic.  But not all service tasks are “equal” in impact – service can be “big” but add little value to the overall relationship, or “small” in scope but huge in impact.  As our lives become busier and the demands of the outside world increase, consider the concept of “tiny service” – how to find the little acts of service that make big differences.  Join Master Jim and slave marsha as they share how and why the concept of “tiny service” became important to them, how to assess the impact of a task on your relationship, and some ideas for finding the “tiny service” that’s right for you.

Are you ready to rumble?

Think about the best "angry sex" you've ever had...It's raw, primal, unceremonious, passionate, and it can be violent.

Nothing could describe Rough Body Play better for me!

As a sadist, there is nothing more enjoyable than hurting my partner with my bare hands. Punching, slapping. kicking. biting, and pinching. And then take down and grappling with skin on skin and few, if any, toys to get in the way.

During this presentation we will talk about RBP scene dynamics, forms of resistance, safety concerns, and why this level of violence is such a turn on!

Becoming a "TARGET"

Many focus on the skills that are required for topping, but sometimes we forget that being a “target” requires skills as well.

When was the last time you went to a class that helped you understand what our jobs as the “target” entails?

As the “target” what do we need to know to enjoy the scene be it whips, floggers, canes, darts or something as simple as a voice whispering in our ear? How can we improve our skills to heighten the play and make the scene even hotter as well as more enjoyable for both parties? How can we ensure that our play is as exciting and enticing as well as safe?

Music and Soul of Canes

CANE!

Because this material is so versatile we have taken this most affordable implement and let our imaginations run wild with it.

In the BDSM realm canes evoke a harsh image when referred to but there is also an overlooked side to canes. One of sensuality. Have you considered the catharsis aspect of a good caning? What about material types, rhythm, stroke intensity, care, storing, and maintenance?

Taking It to the Edge

One of the most erotic CBT scenes I ever saw involved nothing more than hands and lube. It was a delicious walk along the edge of orgasm. A tease and a torture. Pleasure and frustration. "Edging" as a scene can be intense and very enjoyable for both Top and bottom. Not for the shy or easily embarrassed.

Presented by:
Hardy Haberman

 

The GET SPoT: Generative Erotic Trance for Sex-Positive Transformation

Thanks to the myths of popular culture and our all-too-healthy imaginations, hypnosis and trance are often fetishized as some sort of mystical form of mind control. The reality is there is no phenomenon that can't be evoked outside of the context of formal hypnosis. (This is particularly true in the context of our leather/SM/fetish identities, where our mind-body connections are heightened). The techniques and technology of evoking trance, freed from their myths and misconceptions, are a powerful way for each of us to get lots more of what we want.

The GET SPoT is a cooperative framework for taking the best of what erotic trance work has to offer, allowing all parties to claim their personal power and creativity in whatever form of relationship dynamic of erotic play you already enjoy. This class will provide an opportunity to experience the potential and power of erotic trance.

The Mummy Returns

Mummification can be a wonderful sensory deprivation experience or a focused experience as portions of the mummy encasement are selectively removed.

Thunder and Lightening of Whip Play - 201 and beyond

After covering briefly the basics of whips, we shall demonstrate how to become a "crack head". After that, practice makes you perfect.

In most cases, a willing person should be able to crack a whip within 5-10 minutes. We will talk about the safety, negotiations and after care of a single tail scene.

This class will explore from light to heavy sensation, eroticism, and emotions of this SM play.

Don't be fooled that this is only a class for Dominants who want to learn about whip play...IT IS NOT! Understanding the dynamics of whip play allows both partners to achieve what they want from S M play.

Please bring your whips for hands on demo. Safety glasses, gloves and hats are highly recommended.

Young and Dominant?

When you’re new to BDSM, especially if you're young, it's often taken for granted that you are/should be submissive. Many people advocate learning from the bottom, but is that the only way? What are the advantages and disadvantages of doing so? Mr. Ellen will share experiences and knowledge as a young person who found herself called to the D side of the slash. Pup Michael will draw from his experience as the submissive and property of someone 7 years his junior who was only 26 at the time she collared him. Young people can be responsible, knowledgeable, and skilled dominants but we do have to overcome obstacles—not least of which is the age bias. On the other hand, it's important to recognize when we are ready to be in charge of our relationship and when we are not.
