About the Educators:
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.
Sophia Sky was raised by wolves. After she was socialized, she became a massage therapist and then taught at a nationally accredited vocational school. As an anatomy geek, she delights in sharing how knowledge of the body can increase fun in BDSM and sex play.
Naj & Sophia are currently assembling their cohorts and will announce them as they are confirmed in event listings.
