Bloodborne Pathogens and Universal Precautions for Kink

A lot of us would never consider having unprotected sex with a new partner, but woudn’t think twice about using a single tail that can draw blood on a first play date. If your play involves any sort of body fluids, or you play in public spaces where other’s play does, you should take this course. There is a lot outdated and flat out incorrect information when it comes to the proper protocols for dealing with bloodborne pathogens in our community. In this class I will teach the most up to date and thorough ways to not only protect ourselves and our partners, but those that will share space with us as well. Even the most experienced kinkster will likely learn some valuable information from this class. Included in this class will be downloadable notes and links to suggested equipment.

Above the Ring: Innovative Temporary Hard Point Construction @ Williamson 1

We all know a chain is only as strong as it’s weakest link, but do we all know how to spot the weakest link? In this class we will focus on the links that are often taken for granted, the links above the ring. We will discuss various methods of creating a functional and safe hard point from natural objects (such as tree limbs) and man made objects (such as ceiling joist). We will go over proper use of sling straps, carabiners and other commonly (mis)used climbing gear. We will discuss how to use block and tackle pulley systems in way that we can safely and quickly raise our lower our bottom(s) and more using tried and true techniques developed by mountain climbers, rescue teams and professional stage riggers. Included in this class will be downloadable notes and links to suggested equipment.
