Cannon & Killjoy's Workshops


Building & Maintaining Your Pet Dynamic

In this class, which is suitable for newbies and established players alike, pet switches Cannon/Pistol and Killjoy/Bun will delve into the emotional components of this relationship style. What is a pet dynamic, and why might we pursue one? What needs might these roles fulfill? What dynamics are possible beyond that of submissive pet/dominant human owner? Together, we’ll all explore techniques for gaining a deeper understanding of our personas, as well as tools for building and reinforcing our dynamics on a daily basis. Whether you woof, meow, squawk, growl, chirp, or just want to get close to a special critter, this class is for you!

Type of workshop: Discussion


Suspension Bottoming for the Reluctant Masochist

There are countless reasons to be drawn to rope – but for many of us, pain isn’t chief among them. So what’s a non-pain slut to do when her chosen medium is liable to provide a whole lot of ouch? In this class, Killjoy will work through a transition sequence, sharing the active bottoming techniques she uses to mitigate pain, strain, and risk in suspension. Topics will include managing load, differential muscle engagement, breathing techniques, self-adjustments, and tweaks (for both tops and bottoms) that can make familiar poses more comfortable and sustainable. Demo, with discussion and/or skillshare to follow if time permits.
