Warmup for the Weekend
Coming from the mainstream world into the hedonistic sex and kink-positive bubble of the Conference can be a bit of a culture shock. Why not ease your way in with our warmup sessions? Introductions to new people will be mixed with games designed to get your minds into kinky gear, and activities to help define what you want from the weekend and how to go about getting it. You'll leave with a spring in your step and several new acquaintances, ready to fully enjoy the rest of the weekend .

First Aid for BDSMers
What do you do when you have an in-play accident or your play partner suddenly becomes ill? This hands-on workshop aims to answer the question by covering immediate care for choking, suspected heart attack, epilepsy, cardiac arrest, fall from height, significant bleeding, burns, allergic episode, blood sugar drop and eye injury; a whistle-stop tour of what to do when things go wrong! We'll also discuss the issue of whether to leave your play partner in situ/state of undress for the paramedics to arrive (could be someone's kink!) or if a little vanilla-ing of the scene is more appropriate. Finally, we'll discuss first aid kits, safety and pre-planning – Tops, do you have a ‘get-out' if you develop chest pain whilst your favourite subbie is suspended above you or secured to a St Andrew's and unable to assist?

Spice up your scenes, do a role-playing game!
Who's never had a fantasy about being kidnapped (or being the kidnapper), interrogated (or being the bad cop), or being drilled by a strict sergeant (or being the drill sergeant), sold on a slave-market (or being the buyer or seller)? We certainly have! You can have fantasies about almost everything! The only problem is often that the fantasy is not going to happen in real life. Even stronger: you really don't want it to happen in real life!

But: you can turn your fantasy into a role-play. In this workshop we would like to show you how you can design a play around your fantasy and how you can easily transform yourself into another character. We would like to practice some of this and turn some of the fantasies into a live role play. We will also pay attention safety issues, like safewords and psychological impact.

Flirting and Negotiation
This workshop aims to provide participants with tools that will enable them to flirt, either within a kinky context or in the “real” world, as well as negotiate, enthusiastically, kinky scenes, sexy dates or anything in between.

This workshop will rely heavily on attendee participation via small group exercises, and may require attendees to step out of their comfort zone.

Participants of this workshop will leave with tips, tools and tricks that will positively contribute to their skills toolkit

All the pinchy stuff: clips, clamps, pegs...
Who hasn't used nipple clamps at some point in play or sex? But who has gone further, using clamps on torso, arms and legs, tongue and ear lobes, clit, transcock, or other genitalia? This workshop is intended to show the potential of the pinchy stuff as the centre of a play, not just as an afterthought. Discover different types of pinchies, learn about the risk and fun of each of them, try some on yourself, and get new ideas

School Role Play Discussion: why we do (or don't) do it
This workshop is a facilitated discussion about why we participate in school role play and what the differences are between that kind of play and general BDSM play. It will be open for anyone to ask questions or put their point of view. Perhaps someone will tell us why they do not like school role play, there are some that don't and of course some of you who do

Flogging for Beginners
Newbie tops to BDSM are often encouraged to purchase a flogger as their first toy but then they buy one and it sits in a drawer because they don't know how to use it or it's simply the wrong flogger for them or their partner. This is such a pity because flogging and being flogged are great! So whether you're a top or a bottom, this workshop is for you! In this workshop we will start by discussing different types of floggers, how to choose the right flogger for your purpose and what to do with it! We will then explore different flogging techniques, rhythm, safety issues and where on the body to flog. This is a very practical workshop and there will be plenty of opportunity to practice your new skills. This workshop is aimed at beginners and those with just a little experience of flogging. We will be dealing only with multi-stranded floggers not other flagellation toys such as single-tails, sjamboks etc. Bring a flogger with you if you have one.

We need to talk about cunt
After we had so much fun last year talking about cock, it seemed rude not to return the favour! If you have a cunt, enjoy playing with them, or both, you are invited to a frank and open discussion, with any and all respectful questions welcome. We'll talk about the care and feeding of cunt, both cis and trans, including areas such as language and perception, sexual health, and the changes women experience with childbirth and menopause. Then after a quick presentation on Anatomy for Better Fucking, we'll turn our attention to bringing cunt into scenes. New techniques for genitorture, the myriad possibilities of power dynamics, the heavenly hell of chastity and denial - let's share our experiences and inspire one another to new heights of perversity.

A Little This, A Little That: Exploring Age Play
Age Play (n) -- A role play where one or both partners take personas of people older or younger than they really are. Common examples are Babysitter / Naughty child, Daddy / boy, Mummy / boy/girl.

Often a taboo subject this workshop will explore what age play is, its place in BDSM, the benefits and the pitfalls and look at tools and techniques to ensure we get the most out of the scene while remaining safe.

The workshop is suitable for all levels of experience from the mildly curious to the weary daddy who's been there done that and got the scout badge to prove it. Please be aware some may find the content of the workshop upsetting. Although the workshop leader will endeavour to make this space as safe as possible you are responsible for your own safety and can leave at any time.
