After the champagne toast at midnight, you will have the opportunity to shift gears into a more decadent celebration of the new year. Choose the VIP ticket option and we will provide you will a tiara, extra raffle tickets, and early entry for an hour of heavy appetizers to whet your appetite for a long night of debauchery.

A very special experience will be auctioned off right before midnight: a 2-3 hours cruise around the Lakes on a 48’ Trawler Style Power Boat for you and your 11 closest friends. Negotiations about what happens on this cruise is entirely up to you and the boat’s captain. If you would like to donate an item to the auction, please fill out this form [ https://forms.gle/UsfPaswSN1Wk2VRp7 ] and one of Allena’s minions will reach out to you. Accessibility is important to Allena and the Pan Eros Foundation. The Foundation is committed to increasing the accessibility of Gallery Erato and we are honored that a portion of the proceeds of Allena’s auction will help fund these efforts. As a historic building, there are limitations on how and and what types of changes we can make to the building. We are working within the Pioneer Square Historic Preservation Board’s guidelines. Currently, Gallery Erato’s basement is only accessible by stairs. There is a long range plan to put in a vertical incline lift on the staircase, and that project is estimated to start at $40,000.

To support this mission, our monthly discussion topics will range among the educational and artistic realms.   Our goal in hosting these meetings is to grow a community that has rich conversations about sexuality. By fostering open discussions, we hope to end the stigma around sex and sexuality so that people may live more authentically and happily. Each month’s topic and host will be announced as they are confirmed. All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, and religions are welcome and celebrated. Kindness and a willingness to respect another point of view are expected.

Cinematic Masochism with Monk @ Gallery Erato
Jan 3 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Cinematic Masochism with Monk @ Gallery Erato
Showing: Alice in Wonderland: An Adult Musical Comedy What happens when the star of Flesh Gordon, a producer on the run from the IRS, a grammy award winning composer and lots of cocaine try to make the first “pornographic musical”? See the infamous movie, uncut, along with a trivial filled running commentary by exploitation movie nerd Monk (of Twisted Monk Rope fame) and see for yourself. Hear the story behind the film and the ongoing controversy that still surrounds it. One night only! Calling Monk a “vintage porn fan” would be an understatement. For Monk, the “Golden Age of Porn”, 1969-1984, was about more than just the films created. The films of this era, also known as “grind house” or exploitation”, represent never before seen expressions of daring creativity when reflected against the tectonic shifts in the political culture, social upheaval, and radically changing views on obscenity and censorship. Through this series, Monk hopes to introduce, or reintroduce, you to some of the films from the era, while adding historical context and info not just about the films, but how and why they were able to be created. In the end, hoping you can enjoy them not just as a stand alone work, but more of a cultural time capsule from an unprecedented time in our shared history. All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, religions are welcome and celebrated. Purchase Advance Tickets Here! Admission includes popcorn. Water available. Please bring your own bottle or cup. Non-alcoholic drinks will be available for sale. Open to all 18+ All proceeds of this event will benefit the Pan Eros Foundation, a 501c(3) non-profit organization that celebrates and cultivates sexuality. The Pay It Forward scholarship program of the Pan Eros Foundation helps to make sexual education more accessible for all.

Oops – Harm Reduction, Intimacy, and Learning in Kink 1:00 pm
Oops – Harm Reduction, Intimacy, and Learning in Kink @ Gallery Erato
Jan 11 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Oops - Harm Reduction, Intimacy, and Learning in Kink @ Gallery Erato
Scenes are made and broken by how you adapt to the unexpected. Sometimes this means heading off or recovering from a major problem, but much more often it’s small things. Do you notice that your bottom’s having a hard time processing a toy they usually like? Why did the top feel angry when that one thing happened and what did they do about it? Remember the time you did an entirely different kind of scene than you’d planned and it was awesome? How do you respond to a broken whatever, and what do you do to keep it from happening again? Nothing ever goes exactly the way you planned. Uncontrolled external events happen, gear fails, ramifications occur. We run with something that’s working unexpectedly well. We try new things and do them imperfectly or discover the fantasy was hotter. People make mistakes and are complicated. Your decisions matter. You can pre-think safety, own what happens, make course corrections, communicate, and choose to learn. These are things you can do before, during, and after play to decrease the risks of harm, and increase the benefits of error. This class will include presentation and discussion on skills, and talking through real-life incidents small and large. Many of those incidents will be accompanied by video. Some of Russell’s more imperfect moments have been recorded by camera crews, which provide a unique opportunity to dissect exactly what happened, why, how our awareness developed, what we did about it, and how that worked out. Some of this material can be emotionally challenging, but you will come away from the class with tools for when you encounter the unexpected in your scenes. Purchase Advance Tickets Here! All sexes, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations welcome and celebrated. 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. Questions may be directed to: [email protected]   About the Educator: Russell Harmon has been teaching popular kink-related classes since 1999. He runs Lovingly Handmade Pornography, a successful effort to prove that intensity and fun aren’t mutually exclusive in SM porn.

We all want to do our best and support each other when it comes to consent and consensual behavior.

This is a discussion group and not a lecture, but participation is at your own comfort level. There will likely be discussion of kink/BDSM. If you are new to the group and need an introduction or would like a bit more social time, you’re welcome to come at 6:30pm. The group is free and we will provide coffee, tea, and popcorn. You’re also welcome to bring additional snacks, drinks, or information to share. There are stairs to access the facility.

Bondage for Beginners @ Gallery Erato
Jan 18 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Bondage for Beginners @ Gallery Erato
Interested in adding some bondage to your life, but not sure where to start? This comprehensive introductory class will introduce you to the basics of rope bondage and give you the skills you need to safely and confidently start exploring bondage on your own. This is a bondage class rather than a knots class, so our focus is on teaching a small number of versatile techniques that you can use in all kinds of ways. To help you figure out what to do with them, we’ll have numerous fun demos of the techniques in action, along with suggestions for how to figure out what kind of kink works best for you. We want you to focus on having fun with your partner rather than struggling to remember numerous different knots, so everything we teach has been carefully chosen to be easy to learn and use in the real world. As well as bondage techniques, we’ll cover the basics of kink and BDSM. We’ll talk about consent, safe-words, negotiation, and aftercare—everything you need to know in order to start getting up to mischief. We want to make sure you’re able to remember and use everything we teach you, so our extensive class handouts have step by step instructions for every technique in the class. With a student:instructor ratio of 6:1, you’ll get plenty of individualized attention to make sure you get the most out of the class. Important details: This introductory class has no prerequisites. If you have your own rope, you should bring it with you. If you don’t, we have practice rope that you can use during class. We’ll cover what to consider when shopping for rope and will have samples of different types of rope for you to try out. 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 intimate nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time. Open to all 18+ Water available. Please bring your own bottle or cup. Attendance is limited to 24 people Questions may be directed to: [email protected] Purchase Advance Tickets Here!

Please note: This class is broken up into two parts. Part 1 takes place on Wednesday, January 22nd. Part 2 takes place on Wednesday, January 29th. We all need to be able to talk about Consent. Most of us have learned the idea that No means No, but Consent goes way beyond that. Sometimes consent is violated, and many are unsure of how to support their loved ones when that happens. In the absence of information, survivors and their families may benefit from education about sexual assault and its impact on the survivor and their family. Education will also allow for survivors and families to advocate for survivor rights around grief and loss as well as the family’s rights as secondary survivors across different settings (e.g., school, work). 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. All sexes, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations welcome and celebrated. Questions may be directed to: [email protected] About the Educators: The Consent Academy is a group of dedicated educators and activists who provide quality consent training and consultations. We have come together to promote Consent Culture through education, speaking out, and supporting organizations that want to do better. We talk a lot about consent and consensual activity. It’s the cornerstone of what we teach and who we are. And while that is easy to say, we know that living a dedication to consent takes work, awareness, and a willingness to engage.

Jan 27 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
The Pleasure Practice: Blind Contour Figure Drawing @ Gallery Erato
  This Month’s Practice: Blind Contour Figure Drawing Blind contour drawing is a practice of keeping your eyes on the object while your hand free flows on the page. An act of trust, allowing our hands to create on their own. Opening joyfully to the conversation that ensues. Feeling our way. There will be an invitation for participants to take turns modeling and drawing. 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. 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+ All sexes, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations welcome and celebrated. Attendance is limited to 30 people.
