 Melbourne Workshops


Sat   17th September    10.30 – 12.30

 

M/s Protocols: Using Protocols to make your world special.

While there are certain general protocols used in public Leather settings, there are many ways to build protocols into personal relationships, both as a way of honoring the relationship and to demonstrate on a daily basis just how special the relationship is both to Master and to slave. We will also discuss ways that protocols can be used to help to stabilize relationships during times of stress. We'll go over some examples of protocols that we use personally, and ask for audience participation to learn of other protocols that can be used to stabilize a relationship. We will also brainstorm other ways that protocols can be used to benefit both Master and slave in a structured relationship.

Sat   17th September    1.00 -  3.00   

Erotic Fireplay for fun and effect.

Fire play is a high-drama scene in the BDSM world. It is considered by many to be edge play and requires an individual mentor for successful mastery. This live demonstration demonstrates the physical phenomena of endorphin and adrenaline rushes, as well as some psychological "mind-fuck" techniques. This demonstration includes the use of flash cotton, devil's fire (hot needles touched to the skin's surface to produce endorphin release); alcohol wanding and fire glove; cupping and BDSM wax play, with close attention paid to safety procedures.

 
                        Sun 18th September 10.30 - 12.30

Why are we Clashing Like This? Exploring common communication upsets.
Relationships in our BDSM community are often far more complex than marriages. The slave/submissive is working 100% to please Master/Dom(me), and Master/Dom/me is endeavoring to guide and grow the slave/submissive. "Stuff" can often get in the way of clear communication. When communications get in trouble, the relationship gets in trouble.
This workshop covers some "out-of-the-box" communication issues. About half of this presentation will go over conflicts arising from areas where differences between people are often hidden, for example, how we communicate love, how time may be different for each partner, how upbringing may affect your current relationship, how we process information, and so forth.
Many tips and techniques are easy to explain and to learn and provide eye-opening insights about ways you and your partner(s) communicate love. Similarly, couples/triads/etc often collide over issues that are not at all obvious to either party.

 Sun   18th    1.00 PM – 3.00 PM

Structuring the Structured Relationship –– Avoiding Crises and Building Stability
Long-term Master/slave relationships are not accidental; they require ongoing hard work. To a large extent, people get along better with one another when they openly discuss their expectations and wishes with regard to their own growth and the growth of their partner. There are certain tips and techniques - some borrowed from the world of business - that can be helpful before you enter into a relationship, during the development of the relationship, and to keep it running smoothly after it's established.

  THURSDAY 22 ND SEPTEMBER     6.00 M   -  8.00 PM         

Understanding how M/s relationships get into trouble

By most accounts, Master/slave relationships are the most difficult to sustain over time. First, it takes a lot of ongoing work to keep the relationship fresh; second it's easy to slip back into the husband/wife archetype. This interactive presentation discusses such topics as: initial reasons why an M/s relationship can get into trouble; ego and insecurity in M/s relationships; structural reasons for difficulties; exploring fear and anxiety among slaves, inability of Master or slave to be what the other wished for, and an exploration of what a slave candidate might look like to a Master and what a Master candidate may look lie to a slave.

                         THURSDAY 22 ND SEPTEMBER     8.15  PM   -  10.15 PM 

 Leather vs BDSM Master/slave Structures -- Important Differences
Because the Leather culture arose from a military background and the BDSM culture arose from a swinging background, there are major and important ways that Master/slave structures differ between the Leather and Not-Leather cultures. Some of these differences play out in a couple's protocols, other differences play out in the expectations couples have of their M/s dynamic. This presentation is designed to help M/s couples clarify their own relationships so that both partners can be focused on the same core issues/values.                                             

                    FRIDAY 23RD     7.30     -  9.30  

M/s Protocols: Using Protocols to make your world special.

While there are certain general protocols used in public Leather settings, there are many ways to build protocols into personal relationships, both as a way of honoring the relationship and to demonstrate on a daily basis just how special the relationship is both to Master and to slave. We will also discuss ways that protocols can be used to help to stabilize relationships during times of stress. We'll go over some examples of protocols that we use personally, and ask for audience participation to learn of other protocols that can be used to stabilize a relationship. We will also brainstorm other ways that protocols can be used to benefit both Master and slave in a structured relationship.

 SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER      4.00 PM - 6.00 PM  

Erotic Fireplay for fun and effect.

Fire play is a high-drama scene in the BDSM world. It is considered by many to be edge play and requires an individual mentor for successful mastery.
