11:00 AM (Basement Pet Mats) Hay You, Pony Up! - Quit Stalling, & Embrace Pony Play with Unbridled Enthusiasm: - LilPonyBites

LilPonyBites

Hay you! Put on your horseshoes, get out of the barn, and get into the show ring. Pet play, specifically pony play can be intimidating. In this class, we will demystify some of the mane concepts of pony play including equipment, handing/training, safety/consent, and different types of pony play scenes. Do you want to know if you are a dressage pony, cart pony, hunter/jumper, or breeding stock? Are you an Arabian, Clydesdale, or Shetland pony? We will talk about how those labels within your pony identity can be reflected in your play. Once you learn about pony play, your neigh will turn into a yay!


About Beth:
Welcome to this little pony part of the world. Beth (she/her) wholeheartedly joined the Leather, Fetish, and Kink community in 2012. She was eager to submerge herself in a submissive role she found herself in a D/s relationship. This experience taught her the basic do's and don’ts of that dynamic and found herself opening up her little pony self as well as adding to her identity. Being a submissive at heart, she has been adding to her switch tendencies, as well as exploring her newly discovered little brat side. Is there such a thing as a bratty pony!? Definitely. Beth enjoys going to the Farm to learn and train in Pony Play and teaching Pony Play at local events. She is a board member for Miami Valley Pets and Handlers, member of Tri-State Leather, Ohio Leather Alliance, and Women of Drummer. You can often find her indulging her fetish of cigars at her home bar or local favorite cigar shop. Beth enjoys learning and teaching American Sign Language. At many events, you can find Beth combining her passion for ASL and Leather through interpreting. She continually looks to serve and help grow her local Leather and Kink Community.

11:00 AM (Basement Spider Web) Fire Basic and Advanced - FyreRose

This class will cover both the basics and more advanced techniques of fire play.  More info coming.


About Rose:

Fire is kind of who I am.  I was a Firefighter/EMT for 8 years.  10 years ago my creativity found me in fire as I  fell in love working with glass making lampwork beads.  I still love my torch work and now learning furnace work, larger pieces and blown glass.  It only made sense that I fell in love with fire play when I was introduced to it over 8 years ago.

12:00 PM (Basement Pet Mats) Wrangle Those Doggies! Basic Rope Skills for Puppy and Pet Play - Linworth and JuniperW

Linworth and JuniperW

Have you ever wanted to spice up your pet or puppy play with some rope bondage?  Does the idea of a rope harness and leash appeal, or maybe you want to feel your little doggy legs bound up and ready to wriggle in?  Participants in the class will learn some basic rope bondage ties they can pick and choose from to create different feelings and scenarios in their play.

Please come prepared with 3-4 15-foot lengths plus 3-4 30-foot lengths of rope for use in tying.

About Linworth:

Linworth originally came to the scene as an anthropology student, stumbling into the Ohio Leather and kink realm.  Since then, as anthropologists would say, she has gone completely native, adopting the kink lifestyle as her own.  After more than a handful of years she has settled into her main kinks of power exchange, energy exchange, and rope bondage, with the occasional bout of sadomasochism.  While normally the shy type, her passion for education brings out her spunky side.  Whether teaching on consent culture, rope, or the safe practice of all things kinky, she brings a sense of charm and excitement to the classroom.  She is also a proud organizer and volunteer based in Columbus, Ohio, who on occassion makes it further afield.  Given the chance, she will gladly talk your ear off about all of the projects she's currently working on to better the community.


About JuniperW:

JuniperW has been an avid rope lover since she went on a 'rope-ride' at a Halloween fetish party in Columbus, Ohio in 2016.  She prefers floor work, and enjoys gentle, sensual rope as well as more goofy, silly encounters.  She also has quite the soft spot for leg torture.  She has bottomed for rope to friends in her hometown, but has slowly started expanding to work with other rope enthusiasts.  She is also learning how to self tie!  As a general kinkster, JuniperW is more comfortable on the submissive side of the slash, but is continuously learning and exploring.  She has recently been investigating D/s energy through tea service.  Topics of great interest to her are inclusive language, shifting definitions and images of what rope play can be, expanding equity between persons who tie and persons who like to be tied, and anything related to Star Trek.  She is very devoted to rope education and is thrilled to be contributing to it's efforts.

12:00 PM (Basement Spider Web) Creative Needles - josey_girl (with _-soul-_ )

josey_girl (with  _-soul-_ )

Come see all the pretty things you can do with needles.  We'll go over all the basics of play and play safety.  Then the fun begins!  Josey, using soul as her canvas, will use beads, other items and needle scraping to create a mixed media design.  There will be blood and giggles and tons of fun! ​

Josey is an experienced edge player with a passion for spreading the needle gospel.  She helps run a local blood and needle group that focuses on educating others.

4:00 PM (Basement Spider Web) Chain Fisting Demo - *The* Rabbi

*The* Rabbi

Yep, it's what it sounds like. How to do and how to do it safely. ASL interpetation available from the demo bottom on request!


Born to kink on 6/9, The Rabbi is a Sadistic Bratty Daddy Dom, and has been called the "Prince of the Pervertables," "The Pied Piper of Brats" and "The Carrot Top of Kink." He thinks that the last one was a compliment. He creates his own unique toys including ceiling fan paddles, lego nipple clamps, and a mop head flogger to name a few, selling them in his online store, SINagogueBDSM on Etsy (and Fetlife). He's electrocuted people with slinkys, broken all Ten Commandments (over some's ass), and hit people with everything including a literal kitchen sink. Currently, he's working on the first of two Master's Degrees to follow in the steps of the early psychologist pioneer, William Moulton Marston, who was the creator of DISC Theory (Dominance / Inducement / Submission / Compliance) and Wonder Woman, which was originally intended to bring BDSM to the masses in a digestible format. Find him on Fetlife as SolentGrn.

4:00 PM (Main Stage) How to Tie a Human to a Fuck Log - Linworth and JuniperW

Linworth and JuniperW

It turns out sporting goods companies have thought up a special solution for sore post-workout muscles - vibrating foam rollers.  Of course us kinksters can always come up with creative uses of everyday items, so why not translate that creativity here?  In particular, humans (with clitorises especially) enjoy vibrations for other "theurapeutic" reasons, and a foam roller is perfect for those humans to sit on.  And so, I give you . . . the fuck log.

By using the simple rope bondage techniques of tension, body handling, and frictions, Linworth will demonstrate plastering their tying partner to this novel vibrating apparatus.  And not only will they talk through how to apply the rope, they'll also discuss affected neuroscience aspects like the somatosensory system, vasovagal response, and why this exercise has even more profound effects than you might think.  Rope and vibration together - it's a wonderful, wonderful thing.

5:00 PM (Basement Pet Mats) Wax 101+: Basics and Beyond - Michele from Too Hot Candles

Michele from Too Hot Candles

This class will cover:

  • Types of wax that are sutiable and unsuitable for wax play
  • What to look for when selecting candles/wax
  • How coloring and fragrances can effect usability
  • Rules and etiquette for wax play scenes
  • Do's and don'td of wax play
  • How to do different wax play techniques safely
  • Understanding the differences between melting point vs.temperature
  • And much more


About Michele:

Michele has been in the D/s and BDSM lifestyles for most of her adult life.  She's been an owned CNC slave for 26 years.  She says:

We are avid wax players.  The majority of wax play candles that we were able to find were 100% soy.  They never completely hardened on the body and removal was like using a sharp knife to smear peanut butter.  We then found 70/30 candles.  They were far superior, to us, than the soy candles, but they didn't have that 'bite' that we were looking for.

In 2018, we did months of research to learn everything possible about wax, candles, coloring, melting points, etc.  We then started experimenting with different blends to create a candle that has a 'bite', but hardens and cools quickly, won't cause burns and blisters (even when held close to the skin) and is uniform in temperarature, irrespective of color and fluorescence.  Once we developed the perfect blend, Too Hot Candles was formed.

Since then, we've taught wax classes at various venues up and down the East Coast.

5:00 PM (Basement Spider Web) The Sjambock - iLove Lamp (Patrick)

iLove Lamp (Patrick)

In South Africa, the sjambok is a very heavy cattle prod, whip, riding crop and an effective means of self-protection, made from either tightly wrapped Hippo or Rhino hide.  In the kink community, however, they are made from a firm, yet very flexible, polypropylene, and we can use them to deliver impressive welts, and gnarly bruises on our willing bottoms.  This presentation by iLoveLamp will cover all the basics of the sjambok.  He will go over how you hold and swing a sjambok, and he'll touch on gradually ramping up the intensity of impact with your bottom so you can maximize your bottom's bruising potential, while having an amazingly kinky scene you'll both love!

About iLoveLamp

iLoveLamp has been a very active member of the Indianapolis kink community for over 15 years, and has been engaging all things perversion for as long as he can remember.  He is a founding member of Indianapolis Kink Society (IKS) and creator of subSpace Indy, Indianapolis' first and only kink venue, which was established in 2017.  Over the years he has estblished himself as a heavy impact Top, focusing primarily on oversized floggers, dragontails, whips, canes, and the dreadful sjambok.  You can often find him at events at subSpace, either aiding in amazing kinky events, or putting some unfortunate soul upon a cross and beating them to a pulp. While he may look like a big, mean monster, he's really just a big fucking teddy bear.  You should give him a hug.


5:00 PM (Main Stage) Improv for Kinksters - ProfessorSweet
