Finding Intimacy in an Uncomfortable Body 7:00 pm
Finding Intimacy in an Uncomfortable Body @ Gallery Erato
Nov 2 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
An in person discussion group for people having difficulty finding intimacy using their body. A $5-10 donation is requested to offset the cost of using the space. The first Wednesday of the month is for self identified Trans people only. The third Wednesday of the month is for anyone who self identifies with the topic. This will be a group discussion for those of us who are seeking ways to find intimacy with ourselves and others while in a body that gives us some degree of unease and discomfort. That discomfort may be labeled as Dysphoria or Dysmorphia, but the scope of this group is not limited to those specific labels. The idea of Intimacy will include Physical, Mental and Emotional Intimacy, not limited to just the idea of sexual contact. I, as host, will share some of my personal experiences, successes and failures with anyone who is willing to hold the space for me, and in return I will hold the space for them to do so. The doors will open at 7:00 and there will be some social time before 7:30 when the doors will be closed to newcomers. We will have an opening circle, and begin the discussion. My intention is for this group to be educational and informative, I hope everyone finds the event to be therapeutic, however this is not therapy, and I am not a therapist. This discussion matter can be very intense and possibly triggering. Attendees must keep that in mind as they share their own experiences and listen to the experiences of others. Attendees will not be obliged to share anything they do not feel comfortable sharing, but we all have a responsibility to hold the space for each other to express ourselves honestly. Nudity will be allowed in the space for anyone who would feel comfortable being so, but the event is not about sexual contact, and that will not be allowed. This may very well be an intense space where we will speak intimately of our difficulties. I believe that this discussion will be of great benefit to myself, and for others. In order to do so, we must keep in mind that a lot of intense emotions may come to the surface. We must assume that we, individually, will find something triggering during the course of the evening. We will all hold the space for each other as best we can, but ultimately Attendees will be responsible for holding their own shit together. About your host, Jadzia: I am the host April, but I most commonly known as Jadzia in the Kink and Sex Positive community. I have been living openly as a Queer Trans Person for 7 years, and I identify Kinky and Sex Positive. I volunteer with the CSPC, and have been a volunteer with other Queer and Kink community organizations. I care about finding peace within myself, and helping others to do the same. My knowledge comes from my lived experience. I am aware of difficulties in life that I have not and may never experience, and I acknowledge there are blind spots in my understanding and ways of thinking of which I am not aware.

First Thursday Discussions 7:00 pm
First Thursday Discussions @ Gallery Erato
Nov 3 @ 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.

A Casual Introduction to Erotic Hypnosis 12:00 pm
A Casual Introduction to Erotic Hypnosis @ Gallery Erato
Nov 5 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
A Casual Introduction to Erotic Hypnosis @ Gallery Erato
Erotic hypnosis is a marvelous engine for intimacy and erotic imagineering. Hypnotic trance state is a delicious altered state all by itself, but when we stir in suggestion and storytelling we uncover an internal universe that seems limitless. This class will serve as a guide through the first steps in your erotic hypnosis journey and will cover the myriad consent issues, safety, hypnotic induction and will begin to cover applications of hypnosis to our erotic lives. Daniel and Ben have crafted this class to be a blend of theory and practice. There will be a small bit of group work (so come prepared to take a little trip into a trance-y headspace), but mostly the practical exercises will be paired.  Optimally, you’ll bring a partner to this event.  If not, we will do our best to make sure everybody is paired with someone. Purchase your tickets here! Important information: 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 24 people. All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, bodies, body types, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, abilities welcome and celebrated. Questions may be directed to: [email protected] Scholarships available. Please let us know by email if you have any access needs or things that would aid in your learning. About the Educator: Daniel McGlothlen is the queer/gender queer proprietor of visiblerestraint.com, a kinky, queer porn site that’s been around for a couple of decades. They are a kink performer, educator and enthusiast.  They have been facilitating Pan Eros Foundation’s Hypnokink Enthusiasts Group (HEG) for about a year now.  They have also taught hypnosis for Seattle Leather Service Corps., Hypnocon and Rope Burn.  They are working toward creating a 501(c)7 non-profit social club called Trance Pacific, which will be a queer erotic hypnosis group intended to give queer folks in the Pacific Northwest a safe, sexy space for their erotic hypnosis adventures – and, very importantly, to bring erotic hypnosis to underserved communities. Trance Pacific is currently seeking members for its board of directors.  Daniel is also pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, with an emphasis on Sexuality and Gender Studies.  Daniel lives in Tacoma with their husband Craig – and is partnered to Ben, also of Tacoma, who contributes considerably to this class.
Date Night: Massage for Lovers 6:00 pm
Date Night: Massage for Lovers @ Gallery Erato
Nov 5 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Date Night: Massage for Lovers @ Gallery Erato
Embrace the language of sensual touch as a way to connect and show care for your partner. Join former massage practitioner Sophia Sky for an immersive, hands on workshop exploring sensual massage.  Since sensuality starts before we physically engage with one another, we will also spend time practicing how to ask for what we want and listening to our partner so that we may increase everyone’s pleasure. We will start with the basics: safety, massage strokes, and hand positions. Once everyone is on the same page, we will cover: Using more than your hands Good positions for giving when you don’t have a massage table Incorporating others in your massages (4-handed and 6-handed strategies) This class will have a small amount of lecture, but mostly will be structured around having hands-on time practicing the techniques as you see them being demonstrated. After the demonstration, lights will be lowered to create a less formal atmosphere that will allow you to experiment and enjoy yourselves. If there is interest, this is also when Sophia can coach 6-handed massages for those who would like to try it out. We will be using our bodies to touch one another, so please arrive recently showered and avoid using products with strong scents. (No shower facilities are available at Gallery Erato.). This workshop is clothing optional once we get to the hands-on portion. Any clothing you wear should allow for easy movement. Please bring a water bottle, a sheet, a light blanket or towel, your preferred massage oil or lotion, and a willingness to explore connection with your partner. Purchase tickets here! Light refreshments and dessert will be available, with gluten-free and vegetarian options. 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. Only duo tickets are available for this workshop. Please let us know by email ([email protected]) if you have any access needs or things that would aid in your learning. All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, bodies, body types, abilities, relationship orientations, religions are welcome and celebrated. About the educator: Sophia Sky is a former licensed massage therapist who taught at a Seattle based massage school before becoming a sexuality activist and educator. She has put her anatomy knowledge to good use figuring out how to increase one’s sexy and kinky fun. Sophia works for the Pan Eros Foundation producing the Seattle Erotic Art Festival when she isn’t engaging in shenanigans on land and sea.

To help 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. And to make sure you have fun, we’ll teach you a versatile set of skills for improving any kind of pain play. This class is only appropriate for tying pairs. We’ll provide practice rope if you don’t have your own. The extensive color handout includes all the class material as well as additional ties to practice at home. Purchase tickets here!

Seattle Nude, Erotic + Boudoir Photography Group 5:00 pm
Seattle Nude, Erotic + Boudoir Photography Group @ Gallery Erato
Nov 27 @ 5:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Monthly Open-Shoot Meetup 4th Sunday of every month Overview Seattle Nude, Erotic + Boudoir Photography Group exists to facilitate networking and the creation of art in the PNW photography and modeling communities while providing a safer, semi-public space to have first or repeated interactions with co-creators. Beginning January 23rd, 2022 the group organizer, Thrice, will be running a monthly meetup where we discuss and shoot nude, erotic, and boudoir photos, share knowledge and inspiration, and network with others in our creative communities. What to Expect After an initial hour of mingling and conspiring, all the fun and excitement of creation starts when we close the doors at 6pm. Come introduce yourself, mingle and meet, then we will collect the event fee and shooting can begin. At this point, no more attendees will be admitted so no new faces surprise you while you’re shooting. Some gear will be available to rent or borrow, we will go through the available supplies at the start of the event. Open Shoot Format Throughout the event, photographers, assistants, and models will use the large, versatile shooting space to collaborate, have fun, and make art. Come with an idea in mind and a photographer in tow or meet someone here and come up with a spontaneous shoot inspired by the surroundings and your model’s style. Bring all your own gear, ready to shoot, and explore the space to find the perfect spot. Take advantage of any down time to connect with your fellow creatives, find inspiration, share your knowledge and experience. Consent + Consideration Make sure that you have the consent of all bodies in your frame before you shoot. Watch your backgrounds and try not to walk through active shooting space you’re not participating in as a courtesy to all. Lingerie, suggested nudity, and nonsexual nudity are welcome throughout the space. We ask that explicit or overtly sexual acts (use your judgement, ask if you’re not sure) be shot downstairs. We will continually evaluate the ways we use the space and adjust for the comfort and needs of our community to best facilitate free creation. No one is required to shoot with anyone else or to shoot any content they do not wish to participate in. Pressure is unacceptable, both photographers and models are expected to take “No” as a complete sentence any time it is given. Our Hosts + Facility Gallery Erato and the Pan Eros Foundation are pleased to offer those who create art that explores themes of sexuality, gender, relationships, identity, orientation, and love a place to showcase and create their work. This 6000+ square foot space in Pioneer Square spans 2 floors. The ground floor Gallery is fully accessible. There is a 3″ lip at the front entry and a ramp is available upon request. The lower level Studio is currently only accessible by stairs. We encourage the use of public transit or rideshare.

Wash your hands frequently, keep your distance whenever possible, wear masks if you’re not modeling, and consider your COVID precautions when sharing gear.

We prioritize consent and trauma informed interactions. We have zero tolerance for someone making others feel unsafe. We believe in utilizing alternative justice models such as transformative justice to attempt to resolve conflicts. Beginners are welcome. We are planning to do some learning and some experimenting – all very chill, courageous/safe(r) but chill.

About the Facilitators: This event is organized by a small group of trans people and sponsored by -Conspiracy of Geniuses (CoG). CoG seeks out artists with intersecting identities; creating spaces to create work/voice/history. A healing arts project of CoG – Rad (Radical, Accessible, Decolonizing) Care is creating mutual (aid) liberation through community care frameworks centering marginalized intersectional voices. Art is community care. CoG/Rad Care are two sides of the same coin. We are artists who do community care work. We see exploring ropes as an artistic form of self/community care that affirms our bodies and sexuality. The organizers are all trans people of various gender (and other) identities.
