  Wasatch 3 Bri Burning You're A Filthy Little Aren't You? Dark Age Play 101
    Being a little, middle, or Big has many paths just like any other part of our identity. Sometimes your little self might want to be ravaged, used, fucked, and bruised. Your Big self might want to give stickers to your little one after they've taken the biggest butt plug for you. Maybe your middle side likes to punish your Big for being bossy. In this class we're going to go over taboo, acceptance, negotiation, safety, and how to incorporate dark age play into your scenes/dynamics. *This class is a dark ageplay 101 class, but a 201/301 age play class*

  Majestic Mistress Cyan Dynamics of a BDSM Scene

This type of “play” encourages us to dance within our own darkness, the darkness we seek to hide from everyone every day of our lives, which gives us a ritualized and dramatic increase in intimacy. Delve into this taboo and discover the incredible power of ego exposure on a slave’s abrogation of self in service to a Master.

Majestic Ravnos and Pagan Angel Let's go for a ride: The practical guide for an M/s relationship with Chronic Mental Health issues.
    Mental Health issues are prominent more in our community than they are led on to be. The research is out and it is clear. But it is not talked about nearly as often as it should be. In this class Ravnos and Pagan Angel will discuss their personal struggles and challenges they have faced with Pagan as she suffers from severe Chronic Mental health issues and how it has affected their dynamic, how they survived, techniques on when to let up, and when to buckle down on structure, protocol and rituals.  Also, when to choose to be a good partner instead of a good Master and visa versa. Come join us for a class that is sure to be a ride.

10:45 am - 12:15 pm Wasatch 2 Caucus Women's Caucus
    The Women’s Caucus facilitates civil discussion and exploration of issues critical to women in our kink communities. We will introduce different ideas of "women’s experience" into the many conversations of kink, as we construct positive change. What do you want your community to be? Come and use your already powerful voice to create what you need, and build up other women in the process. We are asking that all those who attend are female identified.

The Women's Caucus is open to all female identified individuals whether cisgender or transgender.

  Wasatch 3 Sir Luke and His victor Overcoming Mental Illness in an M/s Dynamic
    Mental illness is the secret we hide in the closet, the hush-hush of the community. We are told, "Don't put your dick in crazy," as if being 'crazy' is a "bad thing." Our brothers, sisters, and siblings are isolated when diagnosed and shunned as unsafe.

As a 24/7, TPE, Master/slave couple, Sir Luke and His slave, victor, will discuss how they handled the transition from neurotypical to living with a mental illness as well as how they live with it now, every day. They will cover the darker parts of mental illness, the struggles of recovery, and the toolbox they use to maintain a healthy dynamic even in the wake of mental illness. Participate in this peer-to-peer discussion to learn new tools for you.

  Cascade 3 Sir Valentino Singletails!

I'll demonstrate how to do an entire scene armed with nothing but a single tail and a couple really cool tricks. From warm-up to Cool down. Ever wanted to know how to do impact play with a single tail? WHat about sensation play? Come find out. Everyone's welcome to bring their own if they have them. We'll have fun and de-mystify these crazy whip thingies all the kids are talking about. Even if you have no experience I guarantee by the end of this class you'll be able to run a scene with almost any single tail you pick up.

  Majestic Ravnos & Pagan Angel Kink is like Chocolate
    How many different varieties of Chocolate are there? The answer is a lot. Ranging from milk chocolate to pure cocoa even though you may only be 56% dark chocolate and somebody might be 98% dark chocolate we are still just chocolate. Kink shaming happens often, to people you never expect it to happen to. It isn’t always obvious either. It permeates our community from the inside and becomes normalized after a while. This class is a safe place to discuss our experiences. Ravnos and Pagan will be discussing theirs and how they have dealt with it. Yes, there will be chocolate. 

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.

  Cascade 3 Jazz The Town BI-cycle: How are We Complicit in Bi-Stigma and Bi-Erasure?
    “The town bicycle”. “Anything that moves”. “Bi girls are HOT!” “Not picky”. “Just horny”.

“Bi now, gay later”. “Bisexuals need not apply”. “Bi dudes brought STIs to the het community”. “Bisexual women introduced STIs to the women’s community”.

“Heterosexual privilege means you CAN’T be marginalized”. “Why don’t you just pick a side, already?”. “Make up your mind!” “Excuse for non-monogamy”. “Cheaters”.

All statements we’ve heard, not from the “enemy”, but from our family…our community. What do YOU think about bisexuality? Where do YOU stand? Join Jazz for an interactive discussion on the stigmas surrounding bisexuality, both historical and current. Be prepared to deliberate on bi-phobia, bi-privilege, bi-erasure, how gender identity can impact the social experience of a bisexual person, how monogamy or non-monogamy can figure into a bisexual identity, and the impact of sexual objectification and ostracization.

Bisexuals, homosexuals, heterosexuals, queers, pansexuals, asexuals, heteroflexibles, and those who are curious…ALL should apply. Where do WE stand?

  Wasatch 2 Nova Blood Threading
    Your flesh is my canvas, my brush, sharpened steel, threaded ribbon and bobbins are my paint. I dance my brush across and through the canvas, weaving colors in and out enhanced with crimson until I turn pain into beauty, my art complete. Blood threading is bringing needles, suturing/threading 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 blood and pain.

Participants can anticipate opportunities to discuss their fears, joys, history, and hopes in what makes sex connective and fun. Be prepared to bare all...or not.

  Majestic Sir Valentino Conflict Resolution for Power Exchange Relationships
    When we all entered the lifestyle we had an idea of what role we wanted or thought we wanted to be in the lifestyle. Whether we Dominant, submissive, Poly or not, we all found something. But eventually, one thing happens to us all …. and that’s conflict. We don’t mean a drop down, drag out, MMA-style situation. We mean when you come to a situation where there is a difference of opinion or seeing something differently than your partner. In these situations, you may not only be on a different page, you may be in an entirely different book. What do you do? How do you deal with something that could very well end the relationship if you don’t handle it properly? This class will give you some ways to recognize the conflicts life can throw at us, how to set up a positive way to deal with those conflicts and how to come up with your own conflict resolution strategy.

    Taboo play is intended to be challenging to programmed social mores on an intimate and individual level, lending it an arousal factor unlike anything else.
