  Majestic Levi Service IS NOT Submission
    There is nothing quite as fantastic as having someone at the end of the night, kneeling at my exhausted feet, unlacing my boots, and taking them off of me. Well maybe some bomb head right before a good fuck, but I digress. In today’s era Our community is bigger and more organized than it has ever been. This means that we have more groups and organizations, and we have bigger events creating a whole fuck-ton of opportunities to serve. It also means we very rarely remember to serve one another as we run like chickens without our heads. Ok, maybe not everyone is giving back to the community enough to feel that crazy, but many people are! In this class Otter will break down the aspects of service and the importance that we all live with a servant’s heart. Yes that even means you Uber Masc Dom Sir Top.

They will be adding their voices from the perspectives of people that identify as women and men, transgender and cisgender, people of color, gay, bisexual, and many other identities. The discussion will center around how the leather community can make more space for queerness. Some topics will include issues that people have seen previously, where improvements can be made, and how people can be better allies. The panelists will also spend time unpacking what being queer looks like for each of them to highlight that there is no one way queer manifests.

All Queerfolk & Allies are invited to attend
  Majestic slave Jazz Magical Tops, Fighter Pilot Bottoms: Sub-space, Stage Magic, Slight of Mind and the OODA Loop
    Class is available to self-identified tops and switches only.

Stage magic, at root, is a shared experience between the magician and the audience, in which the audience allows itself to be a willing participant in a suspension of disbelief. The moment this occurs, referred to as “the magic spot” by psychologist Ben Parris, is not achieved through unethical deception or dishonesty, but rather through the audience’s eager cooperation with the magician’s efforts to create a perception or illusion where the audience can immerse itself for a short time. A stage magician will rely upon purely physical techniques, such as slight-of-hand, as well as the psychological techniques of slight-of-mind, personal charisma and optic mechanics to allow their audience to more easily suspend disbelief.

Likewise, a top can utilize many techniques similar to those of a stage magician not to deceive, but rather to develop a better shared experience for a bottom. This class will teach several techniques of combat and martial arts mindset, stage magic and NLP to allow a top to ethically strengthen a bottom’s connection to and with a scene. We will also explore how these techniques and concepts can be used within authority transferred relationships to assist in the abrogation of self and spiritual connection to service.

The Women's Caucus is open to all female identified individuals whether cisgender or transgender.
  Wasatch 3 Silver Gryphon In, Out, and Up
    Aside from electrical play, what we do in the dungeon has been practiced in one form or another for thousands of years in most cultures, as a way to connect with gods and spirits.  Modern neuroscience has exposed some of the mechanisms of how physical stress creates transcendent experience and what the requirements for that experience are. So, it is the built-in mechanisms of the human brain that are the foundation for "the magic" of BDSM. We borrow our practices from the religions that have gone before, but religions don't create spiritual experiences, they define, control and explain those experiences for their practitioners. How body stress is applied determines whether the experience is inward and self-reflective, outward and connective, or upward and spiritually ecstatic.

  Cascade 3 Mike Blacksmith Putting a little angle in your dangle: Asymmetrical rope
    Asymmetrical rope draws a unique and beautiful aesthetic while having both the potential to be diabolically fast and purely functional. Come join us for a hands-on class and climb aboard a journey to create artistic, one-of-a-kind bindings. This is a class for every body type and every type of rigger/bottom from beginner to expert.

  Majestic Cupcake Harrison Honest Polyamory for the s-type
    Everyone has who claims to be poly has a story about how poly didn't work out. They often say "I don't know, it just didn't work". But why? Why Do some poly relationships work and others do not? Why are s-types having a hard time with poly? And Why is there always a huge fight that ensues when someone is leaving a poly situation. Let's discuss different types of poly, pros and cons and being honest with oneself about how being poly truly works (or doesn't) for them.

1:30 pm - 3:00 pm Wasatch 2 Caucus POC  (People Of Color) Caucus
    Please join us for the second SLC POC & Allies Caucus. We will begin with an introduction, followed by experiences shared by local POC and general Q&A about POC. And we'll conclude with some valuable takeaways.

The term "person of color" from the 18th Century, was revived in the 1990s as the recommended term to use in some official contexts, especially in US English, to refer to a person who is not white. The term has become increasingly common in the US, but it still may not be familiar to all audiences; terms such as "nonwhite" may be used as an alternative. All People of Color & Allies are invited to attend.

  Wasatch 3 Indigo Black and Orpheus Zen and the Erotic Art of BDSM
    Zen and the Erotic Art of BDSM is a class that applies Zen principles, practices and philosophies to not only the hegemonic aspects of our lifestyle but also offers us a deep and meaningful insight into surrender, submission and more... In this class we will discuss:

  • Viewing submission as a way of life and not a series of random acts of obedience.
  • Using Zen principles as a way of viewing our sexuality as an expression of our authentic self.
  • How mindfulness training can become instrumental in implementing protocols and rituals.
  • How instituting Buddhist principles and breathing practices can assist with processing pain.
But most of all, this class is about fostering deeper and more meaningful connections between ourselves and our partner. So bring an open mind and a full heart

  • Different types of knives, their specific use, and how to use them: In this portion we examine different types of knives, their properties, and how they should be applied.
  • Choosing what blade is best for you and your sub: We will examine the relationship between the unholy trilogy (the Dom, the blade, and the sub) and how each fits into a scene. Also, we will show other items that can be used in place of knives that will give you the same effect (pervertables).
  • Blade technique and control: This portion covers finding a knife’s dynamic focal or balance point, points on the body that cause the best sensation, different styles of blade play, and explaining the differences between cutting and blood letting. This portion will also provide different tips and tricks to improve control over your blade and your sub during a knife scene.
Demo: We will do a number of blade play scenes in order to demonstrate these techniques first hand.

  Wasatch 3 Silver Gryhpon Integrity
    Integrity is often cited as a core value of the leather community and is one of the values often associated with groups that value discipline and right action. Integrity is closely allied with another common expression heard often around the leather community, “I have your back”. The usual definition of integrity, ”alignment of thought, word, and deed”, is only a symptom of integrity, neither what integrity is, nor a useful tool for getting there.  This talk explores what integrity actually is, what difficulties interfere with having and expressing integrity, and the challenge each of us must face and overcome to truly live in integrity.

  Cascade 3 Master Obsidian & slave namaste Hear my Face and see His words

Using practical, life situations and humor Master Obsidian and slave namaste will finally illuminate the deep truth behind  “I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I’m not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.”

Time Location  Presenter Class Description
9:00 am - 10:30 am   Wasatch 3 Mina Hart Let's Get Physical
    For many of us, our passion for bondage began with passion in the bedroom. It always seems, however, that just when you get your partner just where you want them, you realize you want them somewhere else. This once erotic form, for many, has become a tedium that we sometimes avoid. In this class, we talk about tips, trick and positions designed to put the passion back into your bondage.

  Cascade 3 Nova Blood Threading
    Blood threading is bringing needles and sutures into the dungeon with the intention of leaving your canvas better than you found it. We’ll be discussing pain, for the art of it. I started doing needles because when I came into the BDSM community there wasn’t someone who could do exactly what I needed, and I needed art. I do what I do not only because I find it HAWT! But because I want my bottoms to feel as beautiful as the gift they give me, and that’s their pain.

  Majestic Cupcake Harrison The Sensual Art of Slave Dance

Slave dances are the highest form of displaying submission in the bdsm community.

How sexy would it be to be able to move your body erotically to the beat of your Master or Mistress’ floggers or whips?  This class will teach you how to raise the eroticism and sensuality of your bdsm play to a whole new level through dance.

Join slave Jazz in a discussion about how to make the move from armchair complainer to passionate leader within your own community, whether that means organizing a community outing, starting a new club or group, opening a local playspace, or producing a kink or leather event.
