Sexploration is a full day event. After taking a break for dinner, attendees are invited back for the evening’s festivities. Take Off, a party where you can try out your new skills, in the Main space from 8pm-2am. Dress up, bring your sexy and kinky toys for a good time.
The Annex and Raw Spaces open at 8pm with an Ask The SexPert panel to cover all the questions that came up during and after the day’s classes. At 9pm, the Kinky Laboratory begins with mini tutorials on a number of topics. Each mini-tutorial is between 5 and 15 minutes of information tailored to you. Our SexPerts will be on hand until 11pm to share their expertise. After 11pm, the spaces will be open for practicing and fun!
Kinky Laboratory Tutorials
Objectification Lab with Miss Amy Red
Miss Amy Red is, or sometimes identifies as: facilitator, instigator, service-oriented, polyamorous, active bottom, treasured property, rope partner, and occasional top. She serves her local community as the Maitre’d of Seattle’s Libertine Social Club, a high-protocol service event, where she trains and provides guidance for house staff. Amy is passionate about powerful education and empowered relationships. She’s had the good fortune to share those passions at conferences across North America. Class topics include service, training, objectification, and power exchange taught largely from a bottom’s perspective.
Flogging with Russell Harmon
Russell Harmon has been teaching popular kink-related classes since 1999. He runs Lovingly Handmade Pornography, a successful effort to prove that intensity and fun aren’t mutually exclusive in SM porn. The class he’s currently most proud of is co-teaching ‘When Things Go Wrong’. He was involved in the creation of the Wet Spot in Seattle, and rides a motorcycle year-round in the Pacific Northwest, proving that he really is masochistic as well as sadistic.
Caning with Eve
Eve is a nurturing sadistic dominant top who enjoys playing with emotions, power, and bodies in a variety of ways and depths. She also identifies as slutty and poly, and finds bdsm and sex to be separately fulfilling. While they certainly can overlap, each brings its own joy and variety to life.
Surgical Staples with Najalaise
Najalaise is maniacal but decent. Naj joined the organized BDSM community in 2005, but was exploring kink and introducing others to play piercing, figging, sounding, fisting, and more for years before that. More recently, Najalaise has had the pleasure of presenting at Paradise Unbound, Seattle’s Foundation for Sex Positive Culture, and conferences across the country. They have also taken a turn behind the scenes, including working on the organizing committee for the 2013 Kink LINCS Leadership Symposium, serving as Programming Director for Paradise Unbound 2014, and planning parties and panel discussions at on an ongoing basis. Naj is gleeful about learning and trying new things, both as a top and as a bottom, and is invested in creating spaces that foster knowledge and creativity by making it okay to screw up in public.
