First Thursday Discussions 7:00 pm
First Thursday Discussions @ Gallery Erato
Jul 1 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
The Pan Eros Foundation is pleased to create space for people to meet, talk, and share conversation and ideas. Each month, Pan Eros will host a discussion at Gallery Erato with a different topic to encourage the sharing of ideas and to create and expand communities. Pan Eros means “all love” and we support participants in cultivating and celebrating their sexuality. 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.

We are (still) in the process of drafting a more comprehensive Code of Conduct and Consent. In the meantime, as always, we ask that attendees follow our simple rules (it’s ok if you have a dick or want a dick, just don’t be a dick), and respect the space we’re using. We’ll go over the full set of rules during orientation at ~6pm.

It begins the Consent & leadership Series by covering consent in more detail, going over definitions & concepts you will need for future classes, and looking at the pieces that make both practicing and managing consent as a leader more complicated.

Jul 17 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Nerves and Bondage @ online via Zoom
Even though nerve damage is the most common bondage injury, it can be surprisingly hard to find reliable information about it. Even many world-class riggers and instructors rely on hearsay and superstition rather than hard medical data. You don’t have to be one of them- this class will give you the knowledge and skills you need to minimize your risk of causing or experiencing nerve damage. We’ll present techniques for bottoms as well as riggers, and talk about how to detect and respond to nerve damage if you do encounter it during a scene. No matter what your risk profile, this class will make your scenes safer and more sustainable. Purchase tickets here! Important details: This class has no prerequisites, but it will be most interesting to experienced riggers and suspension bottoms.
