"You never have a second chance to make a first impression"- it's an oft repeated cliché because it's true! Many crucial "firsts" go into a premiere playdate- poise, finding compatible partners, confident and empathetic negotiation, and reading your partner during scene. This highly interactive class focuses on connection and RACK and is geared to both submissives/bottoms and tops/Doms, with opportunities to assess your negotiation skills, consider your limits, and troubleshoot roleplay scenarios. We will include demonstrations focused on dynamic bottoming and reading and using body language in scene. This is a great workshop for those who are exploring a different role (topping/bottoming) or who are just looking for new play partners and want to be sure those first scenes are stellar.
As Purveyors of Perversion, Stefanos and Shay (StefanosandShay.com) are known for teaching classes that are entertaining (they've been called "better than a Vegas act") and also packed with useful and applicable information. Together they host events and teach classes several times a month in SF Bay Area and beyond. Shay is an ER nurse by day and writes the column "Private Duty" for Kink-e-Zine, while Stefanos is all kink all the time in his professional life as the Steward of The Upper Floor on Kink.com and as DM and manager of Bondage-a-Go-Go. Having been named the King & Queen of Pervert's Prom in 2006, they are compulsive volunteers within the leather community,and identify as pansexual polyamorist playsluts (and probably a few other P's they haven't thought of yet). They have performed,presented, and hosted events at venues around the country, including the SF Citadel, Dark Odyssey, Mission Control, Thunder in the Mountains, Northwest Leather Celebration, KinkAcademy.com, the Exotic Erotic Ball, OpenSF, Discovery Channel's Oddities, and in a number of documentaries across the world.
