First Thursday Discussions 7:00 pm
First Thursday Discussions @ Gallery Erato
Sep 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.

Finding Intimacy in an Uncomfortable Body 7:00 pm
Finding Intimacy in an Uncomfortable Body @ Gallery Erato
Sep 7 @ 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.

Bondage for Immobilization 12:00 pm
Bondage for Immobilization @ Gallery Erato
Sep 10 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Bondage for Immobilization @ Gallery Erato
As well as being a great addition to other kinds of play, bondage is a lot of fun in its own right. This class focuses on techniques for strict, immobilizing bondage. If you fantasize about watching your partner squirm helplessly in your rope, this is the class for you. One of the best ways to truly immobilize someone is to tie them to the bed (or the couch, or the rack). Although it’s easy to tie someone fairly securely, it is surprisingly hard to completely immobilize them. Making everything tighter isn’t the answer: overly tight bondage isn’t more secure, and it can be uncomfortable or even dangerous. We’ll take a look at ties and techniques that are strict and secure without being unsafe. There are times, however, when you don’t have any furniture to tie to. For those situations, the hogtie is a great choice. One of the classic bondage positions, the hogtie is tremendously fun and versatile. The traditional hogtie is a physically demanding tie, but we’ll look at options for making it more comfortable as well as more challenging. We’ll also talk about how to adapt the hogtie to different body types and physical limitations. Purchase tickets here! Important details: This is an intermediate level class. You should be familiar with basic kink concepts and should be able to tie a single column tie. You will need to bring your own rope to this class. We recommend at least two 10-15′ lengths and at least one 20-30′ length. All sexes, genders, races, 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 10 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] COVID Protocols: All attendees must provide proof of current Covid vaccination. All attendees must wear face masks at all times except when drinking. We will do our best to accommodate medical exemptions Covid-related accommodations. Please contact us at [email protected] before your class to speak to Full Circle Kink’s staff physician. About the Educators: Full Circle Kink is a Seattle-based kink education group known for high-quality classes on a wide range of topics. Our classes span the spectrum from beginner topics to deep dives on highly technical subjects.

Seattle Nude, Erotic + Boudoir Photography Group 5:00 pm
Seattle Nude, Erotic + Boudoir Photography Group @ Gallery Erato
Sep 25 @ 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. Forr more information about the space, go to: https://www.pan-eros.org/galleryerato/ COVID Precautions As per King County guidelines, all attendees must present a valid vaccination record or negative test results within 72 hours of the event start time. Wash your hands frequently, keep your distance whenever possible, wear masks if you’re not modeling, and consider your COVID precautions when sharing gear.
