Right to the Heart: Intensity, Intimacy and Arousal in BDSM Play
Presented By Julie Hekate
7-9pm, before the Grind and The Chill events
Annex of the CSPC

Many of us do BDSM because we find it HOT. It connects us, moves us, splits us open… and yet, over time we may find ourselves covering up or even avoiding the intensity, intimacy and arousal that arises in our play. Join Julie Hekate in exploring why we simultaneously fear and desire these things, as well as how we can more easily and consistently access them to create hotter scenes and better connections with our lovers and play partners.

Going Beyond Verbal Communication
Presented By Sofia Sky and Jim Duvall
5-7pm, before the Fettered event
Annex of the CSPC

Body language, tone of voice, rate of speech and posture are powerful ways we send cues to our partner, often louder than words. Non-verbal communication can be a rich source of information. With careful attention, you can use these subtle forms of communication to enhance your play, whether you are a top or a bottom. We will show you techniques for gathering visual, tactile and auditory information before and during a scene to create more fluid and intuitive play.
