There will be sexy demos, explanations of common and not so common ways to tie someone down. And ideas on what to do with them once they are tied. For the recipients of bondage there will be explanations of how to turn your fantasy into an effective reality. Please bring an open mind and be ready to explore and have fun.

[Associated Event] How to Live a Magnificent Life @ Odd Fellows Meeting Hall - Upstairs Hall
  EMERGENCE! The process of coming into view or becoming exposed after being concealed. Allena Gabosch Challenges us all to Become Outrageously, Totally Human! ​ What are the persistent cultural and social conditionings that have constrained our minds with self limiting beliefs? Are we an expression of our deepest selves or are we hemmed in by thoughts of a society that my not have thoughtfully questioned the veracity of the beliefs it conveys? These are notions that beg further exploration: Are we really in control of our own feelings, moods, thoughts, emotions and behaviors? Come explore this possibility and what it might mean for our lives. This is a woman in the very midst of a battle with cancer who says, “Cancer Sucks, but my life doesn’t!!” In the center of her greatest challenge she stands resolute, ready to share the insights that give her passion and vitality for living and graciousness toward the people she encounters. A lot of us think we’re awake while our lives are dominated by habitual thinking and acting. Is the ritual of everyday life providing the real freedom and choice required to overthrow the lethargy and fear that comes from previous conditioning? If you’re able to admit what you’ve been doing and what you’re doing now isn’t fulfilling you, come join this conversation for a new, very powerful and personal emergence. Even if you’ve already begun your journey out of sleepwalking thru your life, Allena’s presentation will provoke and inspire you to continue!! You’ll also be in the company of others committed to their own transformation. Come make friends, be supportive and support others on this exciting journey. As a sex educator and community builder Allena Gabosch has worked with thousands of people around the world to create opportunities for others to step into their authentic personal expression. Allena’s presentation transverses the landscape of transforming your life, in all areas, including relationships and sex and how transformative sex and relationships can be. Her outrageous, provocative truth is liberating. People often react with laughter and hilarity when they finally realize what’s been holding them back in their quest for expression and fulfillment is a flimsy little thought they’ve never questioned. Come listen, laugh and learn with us!! Free registration required at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/how-to-live-a-magnificent-life-presentation-with-allena-gabosh-tickets-77686649861

Bondage for Pain 1:00 pm
Bondage for Pain @ Gallery Erato
Nov 16 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Bondage for Pain @ Gallery Erato
Rope bondage is a wonderfully versatile tool that works well for all kinds of play styles. Although we normally try to make our bondage as comfortable as possible, this class will look at ways to deliberately and safely create bondage that is uncomfortable or even painful. Good pain bondage should be safe and precise: it should deliver exactly the right amount of sensation without causing damage. We’ve chosen a set of techniques that work well with almost any body type and which can be easily adjusted to whatever intensity level you’re looking for. In addition to using rope to cause pain directly, we’ll look at stress positions that create discomfort by holding the body in challenging poses. Finally, we’ll look at predicament bondage: creating a situation where your partner has to pick between two different kinds of discomfort. Predicament bondage can be particularly fun, and is often a favorite with smart, bratty bottoms. If you’re a top, we’ll show you some great techniques that will help you put your partner in their place and keep them there. And for bottoms, we have some handy tips to keep those pesky tops from putting you in your place. To make sure you stay safe, we’ll talk about the anatomy of pain play and how to tell the difference between safe pain and dangerous pain. We’ll also cover some great techniques for processing pain and moving in rope to improve your ability to handle and enjoy challenging ties. No matter whether you’re a heavy sadomasochist looking to add rope to your repertoire or just want to experiment with some light sensation play, this class will give you the tools you’re looking for. Purchase Advance Tickets Here! Important details: This is an intermediate level class. You should be familiar with basic kink concepts and know how to tie a single column tie. Please bring your own rope to this class. We recommend at least two 10-15′ lengths and one 20-30′ length. You can attend on your own, but it’s more fun if you bring a partner. All sexes, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations welcome and celebrated. No late entry will be allowed due to the safety information at the beginning of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 15 minutes after the start time. Water available. Please bring your own bottle or cup. Open to all 18+ Attendance is limited to 12 tying pairs. Questions may be directed to: [email protected] About the Educators: Full Circle Kink is best known for full-suspension rope bondage, one of the most beautiful—and technically challenging—forms of BDSM. Our classes are known for their technical excellence, rigorous focus on safety, and low ratio of students to instructors. For more information, visit: http://www.fullcirclekink.com/

Men Tying Men is a rope bondage enthusiast group for men and for people with lived experience as men. Its aim is to be an excellent place for us to share bondage techniques and resources and to bring our latest projects for feedback and troubleshooting. Not a play party (clothes are required) but a chance to talk bondage, to practice bondage, to learn and teach bondage and to network with other bondage obsessives. Men of all experience levels are welcome – including those with zero practical experience. The facilitators will always be available to answer questions and to gently guide the conversation. Single men, couples and groups are welcome. We will always try to make sure that everyone who wants to join in at practice times will have that opportunity. Our venue is Gallery Erato. It has great wrestling mats for our floor work, places to sit during our discussions and hard points for suspension practice. It’s perfect for what we need. Men Tying Men meets from 6 PM to 9 PM on the 3rd Wednesday of the 2nd month of each quarter. In 2019, that means we will meet on February 20th, May 15th, August 21st and November 20th. We request a $5 to $10 donation.

Learn how to move towards an informed Yes and a better understanding of what it means to live in a Consent Culture. No reservation or RSVP required.

The Pleasure Practice: Vibrating Chakra Choir @ Gallery Erato
Nov 25 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
The Pleasure Practice: Vibrating Chakra Choir @ Gallery Erato
Why Pleasure? We honor Pleasure as resistance to apathy. Where trauma restricts, Pleasure opens. Attuning to the self healing power of pleasure as our birthright. A space to revitalize, listen to and attend to our own needs and desires; a place of self discovery. Pleasure as the source of sacred sweetness, we embrace the nectar of our own unfolding. Why solo? Our Pleasure is our own. Pleasure is an experience we cultivate from within. Why together? We practice in community to strengthen our sense of belonging, offer witness to each other and experience our interconnectedness in a brave, vulnerable and receptive space. We intend to create community that supports the unlearning of shame, dismantling of heteronorms and affirms queerness. We welcome all gender expressions. The Practice Simple and profound. Each workshop offers a specific invitation to engage with pleasure and can be taken as a stand alone workshop while the series intends to build community. Each practice allows 15 minutes for arriving, 15 minutes for setting group agreements and intentions, an embodiment invitation and song leading into one hour of our special activity, and concluding with 30 minutes of savoring, mingling and imbibing something seasonal and delicious. This month: Vibrating chakra choir An embodiment meditation focusing on each energy center. Intentionally stimulating each chakra, attuning to the specific resonance therein and raising the vibration with our voices. We will become a symphony of improvised voices and vibration. Purchase advance tickets here! No late entry will be allowed due to the intimate nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time. Water available. Please bring your own cup or bottle. Open to all 18+ Attendance is limited to 30 people.
