Cram your strawberries! Food play from nibbles to the edge

Food and sex touch us at the core. How and when we are fed or feed others goes to the center of our social and animal natures. This class looks at the ways to explore the intimacies inherent in playing with food. Often presented as a gauzy sensual indulgence, food can also be a powerful part of a D/s relationship, incorporating control, interrogation, conditioning as well as the entire range of physical pleasures of wet and messy play. The discussion will be wide ranging and will draw on the presenter's experiences in the gainer/encourager community.

Type of workshop: Discussion


Notes of a Reluctant Daddy: Ageplay from the "Big" perspective

Being confronted by a partner's desire for age play can be jarring and unsettling. Most classes look at the situation from the point of view of the "little", but the situation can be just as triggering for the "adult", bringing up questions of socially taboo desires, and styles of play where one's partner may be extremely vulnerable. This class presents some strategies for discussing the possibilities and a frame work for find one's way into the role of being "the Grownup" as well as presenting an opportunity to question some of the assumptions about that role.
