Shit or Get off the Pot

Friday, January 27, 8:30 to 11:30 p.m.

Spiritual liberation or just a shitty idea; digesting, creating movement, and releasing for the purpose of cleansing oneself of the waste that no longer serves. There are many ways to achieve transformation. During this workshop we will explore some often misunderstood means to achieve such release.

Presenter Tommie StarChild has been an active member of the San Diego Leather community for 11 years. In addition, he has been in the D/S, BD/SM lifestyle for 22years. He lived 24/7 in a DS relationship for 6 years, was Padric Halls’ boy for 1 year and grandson to Jo Blas. He was under the teaching of Ms. Cynthia for his 3rd year, and assisted for 2 year. In addition, he is a priest of the Anderson Feri tradition, has been practicing the magic arts for 18 years, and now owns My Authentic Self where he works as a spiritual counselor, Reiki Master, healer, teacher, artist, and crafter of magical jewelry.

Forgive Me, Father, for I Have Sinned

Saturday, January 28, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This workshop, “Bless me Father,” is an example of the guilt/absolution interplay between a Priest (authority figure) and an altar boy (poor little sinner who doesn’t have a chance in hell of doing anything right) as the Priest sets up the Altar Server and then exacts an appropriate penance for the sins committed.

Presenter Mistress Melissa, Southern California Leather Woman 2011-2012. is a Professional/Lifestyle Dominant that has been in, on, and around the BDSM scene over 15 years. She’s worked as Head Mistress at the Chateau and Bar Sinister where I was the Head Mistress, and you may have seen her at The Dominion. She’s been on HBO, MTV, The WeNetwork, and many other publications.

Assistant Domina Angelina focuses on lifestyle education, with numerous workshops at Dungeon Servitus, skill training for select Dommes, as well as workshops for the local LGTBQ and Leather communities. Domina Angelina is the head of the Servitus F/family, a diverse group of Lifestyle Dominants, Switches, submissives, Tops, bottoms and fetishists. Domina Angelina is also a proud Poly Partner with Steve Hayworth.

WTF!?! A journey from A to Z and everything fucking imaginable in between …

Saturday, January 28, 2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

On this road we will explore the concept “WTF!?!” A to Z in definitions, terminology, protocols, and instructions on many absolute methods to get the proper answers to the “WTF!?!” questions at hand.

Presenter Mistress Shae Flanigan has been a Lifestyle player for the past 15 years and a member of the Los Angeles and San Diego Kink and Leather communities since landing in California from the Pacific Northwest a little over five years ago. To learn more about Mistress Shae and her classes or professional work, please check out her sites: www.MistressShae.com and www.shaeflanigan.com. For information about her life coaching, please visit www.choosethepathlesstraveled.com

Presenter Temptrx comes from a long line of perverted and twisted folk. She has over 20 years experience in the Leather community and was trained in the old school traditions. She loves sharp and shiny objects and the sight of blood, whether her own or that of a tasty victim, brings out her very, very long fangs.

Assistant Astrid is a service-oriented versatile who plays and blurs lines between gender, power, and sensation. Shie plays hard and works hard at learning how to play. She likes to be aware of the risks, as safe as possible and always with consent (even if it may not sound like it to the casual observer).

If It Didn’t Hurt, I Wouldn’t Do It Because In Doing It I Bring You Joy

Saturday, January 28, 8-11 p.m.

Rough body punching is an interactive workshop that has been presented by Master Z at numerous events and venues around the country. A thorough explanation and demonstration on the art of rough body play is presented and hands-on experience will also be available to the participants of this energizing and sexy workshop. How to body punch, kick and face slap safely will be covered in detail.

Master Z of Texas is a well known Dominant, Presenter and Leader in the Leather and BDSm scene. He is the International Master 2004 and travels all over the United States and Canada making presentations on the Master/slave-Leather lifestyle and BDSm technique. He has also served as a popular Keynote Speaker and Emcee for a number of events. He is the Owner of slave bill and slave kiki.

Mums, the Word in Mummification...Lessons From The Tomb

Sunday, January 29, 10:15 a.m. to 1:45 p.m.

The mystery of the Mummy. Who or what lay buried beneath those wrappings? This workshop will show various forms of wrappings for mummification and different techniques for both the enjoyment of the Top and bottom roles. Wrapping of the body fully in materials from head to toe is mummification. This is one of your Edgier play scenes.

Presenter David Janisch has been active in the Leather community for over 30 years. David started his involvement with Club X in 1994, served 2 years on its board X, volunteered for Leatherfest San Diego for five years and co-directed Leatherfest IX.

His most requested workshop is mummification.

Assistant Peter Gieblewicz’ involvement with the Leather/kink community has taken him fast forward in the last 10 years within the confines of IML, MIR, Southern Decadence, Hellfire Inferno & Folsom St. Fair in San Francisco, to name a few. He is a strong experienced bondage aficionado, a talented man who can give and receive in an equal balance. His motto is, “Bondage, bondage & more bondage.”
