Getting to the Point: The Basics of Play Piercing / Needle Play

Whether you are new and curious when it comes to all things sharp and pointy, or a veteran at turning your friends into pincushions, we will go over the basics of supplies and where to find them as well as safety and technique. We will practice on consenting inanimate objects but feel free to bring your own living pincushion or volunteer your services as a needle slut. Objectives include:

  • Introduction to Needle Play
  • Overview of Safety*

Those who use phone or video calls to keep in sexy contact with long-distance partners, cam workers, and anyone who simply wants to add some verbal flair to their kink scenes are encouraged to attend! MsMadyson can spin a tale of your dark desires and deep fantasies for hours, and she’ll share these skills to help you live out elements of your sexual desire with your kink. The class will also explore:

The Dirty Talk Game Show

3pm – 4:30pm

The Dirty Talk Game Show pits four naughty-tongued panelists say just the right naughty thing, before the other panelists steal the clock and finish it up right.

In turn each naughty panelist is given a topic to talk about for sixty seconds without repeating themselves, pausing too long, or deviating from the subject (They can be deviants, they just can’t deviate from the subject). If they do any of that, the other panelists pounce and steal the timer and finish it out. The winner with the most naughty points will be crowned the Filthiest Mouth of Boundless 2018!

Body Faming: How to Find and Feel Yes with your Body

4:30pm – 6:30pm

Using exercises that flex the muscles of all five senses, we will explore what an enthusiastic yes looks, sounds, feels, smells, and tastes like in order to experience a whole body yes. Be prepared with something to write with and to write on. A journal would be ideal so that these writings can be saved for later. Bring a blindfold. Please, no deodorants or perfumes of any kind, not even strongly scented soaps/body wash.

Toxic Sex Toys

4:30pm – 6:30pm

If you are careful about what you put in your body, don’t limit it to food and drink. Sex toys are an unregulated industry, and can absolutely be a health hazard. Unscrupulous companies make toys that contain chemicals banned in children’s toys and even pet toys! The solution is to educate yourself and become a savvy consumer in the world of sex toys. I will teach you the basics of choosing body-safe, non-toxic toys to put inside you (or your partner…), and tips on how to recognize toys that aren’t safe. If you are not sure whether your toy is safe – bring it to class!

Single Tails

This class will utilize demonstration and critique as well as interaction and discussion for guided practice. Additionally, this class provides opportunities for service and volunteerism in the following positions:

  • Demo crew valet
  • Demonstration bottom
  • Toy valet and cleaner if needed
  • Scene apprentice
  • Rigger

Empower or destroy, punish or pleasure, and eroticism vs. real wounds whips make and how to heal them. Returning your subject back just as good or better! This class is an exploration of the art and discipline of conducting and processing single tail whip scenes. Emphasis on safety , training ethic, cultivating consent culture, dojo culture, and sacred space for the work. This class is equally suited for bottoms as well as tops wanting to increase skills, bottoms to the front.
