It has sold tens of millions of copies and been translated into numerous languages. For many of the first generation to openly explore M/s relationships, it came as a revelation. Even today, its influence in the customs and rituals of BDSM is still powerful. Since its publication, many other works of fiction and non-fiction have helped open the door to the world of power-based unions for newcomers. The process is ongoing and with the recent tremendous success of a particular work of BDSM fiction has undoubtedly produced a critical mass in the the already-exploding popular interest in the romance of domination and submission. But what are we really learning from what we read and what implications does that have for our futures, both personally and socially? What are the back stories behind BDSM Lit and how do its varying perspectives impact the way we shape our own narratives? How does our increasingly public presence affect us as a community and individually? Ernest Greene, who has been writing about these topics for decades, invites us to discuss what we learn from books and how that both enables and obstructs our own exploration.” icon_color=”#ffffff” icon_hover_color=”#ffffff” title_color=”#1e73be” text_color=”#ffffff”]

From a playful swat of an erotic spanking to an out-of-body experience brought on through an intense temporary piercing, pain can produce amazing effects. Playing with Pain explores the often overlooked secrets of how people process pain in an erotic setting and the dynamic power exchange involved.

That those who serve a Master also have needs, and slaves both need and deserve validation of who they are and the place they hold.

Whether you have one protocol, or ten; regardless if you are in a new relationship, or have been in it ten years, the fact remains that having protocols, organizing them, and enforcing them, is an invaluable tool to help maintain the dynamic. In this presentation, Master Tallen will help you discover protocols, or rediscover them.

I was in that very situation when Master Ernest and I got together. We went from friends to lovers to Master and slave. We both desired this with all our hearts, but to be the slave I wanted to be I found that I had much to learn about protocol, about technique and about how we could establish a dynamic that worked equally well for both of us. In my class I’ll share my experience and offer practical advice on how to bridge the experience gap without spoiling the magic of discovery.
