September 9, 2016: NEDS Presents Electrical Play

electric

NEDS Presents: Electrical Play with ElectroRich

That’s right. You heard it here- ElectroRich will be coming back to NEDS for another electrifying class.

This one’s going to be a bit different. ElectroRich will spend some time talking about electrical play, but then we’re going to let everyone try things out if they wish. While not a play event, this will be one for people to experience what it’s like with electrical play, and to get help using equipment. Rich is a wonderful presenter, and one of the best when it comes to this kind of play, and he’s graciously consented to helping people learn about the equipment, whether on the top or bottom. Switches are welcome and encouraged!

He’ll be showing how to make and use some low cost toys to go along with the equipment, and we’ll even have a TENS unit or two to experiment with.

Come out and bring your equipment and let’s spark up some fun while learning all about electrical play.

About the Presenter:
ElectroRich has been playing with electricity and electrical devices since age 12. Skilled in building and operating specialty electrical contraptions, he has 30 years of experience in the BDSM scene. ElectroRich and has literally been offering demos for decades. His shows are spectacular, and each one is a unique performance.

ElectroRich is known and beloved in Vermont, Montreal, Albany, and Kingston, NY for his sensational BDSM Performance Art.

Favorite quote: “If it makes big sparks I like it!”

He lived in NYC the mid 1970s as a student, earning his degree in electrical engineering. At the same time he began frequenting clubs such as: the Vault, Hell Fire, and Paddles.

ElectroRich is meticulous about safety precautions. He’s always willing to help people safely experience the violet wand, in addition to one-of-a-kind electrical devices designed by ElectoRich and his friends. Electro-Rich would like to send out shout of gratitude to the build team behind these special home-made electrical gadgets. After the Demo, he’ll enjoy helping anyone interested in experimenting with these electrical devices and / or the violet wand.

“I started out like everyone, learning on the go, and getting instruction from some good mentors. I feel that now it’s my time to get out, educate folks about electrical play, put on some really cool Demos, and give back to the BDSM community.”— ElectroRich

FAQ: What to Expect, Where to Go, What to Do at a NEDS Class

Coloured Question Marks

NEDS Classes: FAQ

  • I’ve never attended a class before- what are NEDS classes like?

Our classes are perfect for anyone just discovering their kinkier side. Our classes are either lecture format or hand-on. You can participate as much, or as little as you wish. We hold an orientation prior to the start of each class- and we encourage new-to-kink people or new-to-NEDS people to attend the orientation. Our hospitality committee is always available to meet and greet newcomers and introduce them to others. In addition- we have social time before, at the break, and at the end of each class so that people can meet others without pressure. NEDS classes are held in a hotel conference room and are not play parties. Vanilla dress is required and you must be 18 or over to attend. ID is required.

  • What do I do when I get to the hotel? Who should I ask for? Where do I go? 

Our classes are held at the Hyatt House in Waltham, MA. When you get to the hotel, go through the lobby, turn right, and just after the ATM machines, we’re in the conference room, second door on the right. If you’re unsure, stop by the front desk and ask for the NEDS group. They’ll point you in the right direction, and without any sort of judgment. Our host venue is used to several years of our attendees coming and going, and they’re wonderful to our guests.

  • What is the cost? 

Most often the cost of the class is $20 if you’re a non-member. We do occasionally have discounted admission, but a regular Friday night class will never be more than $20.  If you decide to become a member, the cost for classes is $10, and we have about two classes a year that are free for members. Specialty classes outside of the normal monthly ones are a separate fee, which is published in the event notice. You don’t need to pre-pay. We take cash and credit cards at the door.

  • What happens at a NEDS class? Is it a party? Do people play? 

When you arrive, you’ll be asked to sign in with a scene name. We’ll check your ID to make sure you’re over 18, and you have the option of filling out a name tag. Our hospitality committee has greeters that will help introduce you to other people if needed, or you can just jump in and introduce yourself. We have snacks and non-alcoholic drinks for our attendees. Grab a snack, find a chair, or mingle around until the class starts at 7:30. Attendees can arrive after 6:30, and we start classes at 7:30. The hotel has a small restaurant, so if you’d like to grab a quick bite there before class, that’s a great idea.

NEDS classes are educational in nature. They’re not play parties. We have a presenter who will talk about a particular topic, on a wide range of kinky subjects, some of which may include a demo. Some classes have a more hands on component to the education, but they are not play parties. Rope classes tend to be more participatory, while classes on relationship dynamics encourage audience discussion. All classes are designed for beginners as well as intermediate kinksters and are well suited for new people. Since these classes are educational, they are not play events or parties. People laugh, learn and socialize within an educational framework.

  • What kinds of topics do you cover? 

We cover a wide range of topics. Past classes have included:

  • Bondage: including rope, mummification, vet wrap, alternative and psychology.
  • Relationships: including Master/slave; Daddy/littlegirl; Domination and Submission, and Polyamory.
  • Skills: including flogging, spanking, caning, whips, wax, knives, hypnosis and more!
  • And a whole slew of other classes including BDSM 101, pet play, service, humiliation, role play, ass-play, edge-play, rape-play, rough-body play, pervertibles, sensation play, tickling, religious play and lots and lots more.

If you want to see a class, let us know and we’ll see about getting it for you!

  • Does NEDS vet its presenters?

As a general rule, yes. We ask for references and we attend demos and classes to view presenting styles and information. Bearing in mind that any particular presenter may not always agree with an individual’s outlook on a particular topic, we encourage our members and guests to view the material with an open mind, and to seek out other opinions on the same topic of interest. We do not expect our presenters to be the “last word” on any subject, but rather, we ask our presenters to be knowledgeable, passionate and interested in presenting in a group dynamic. Likewise- we expect our attendees to realize that no presenter, in a 90 minute presentation, can touch on every conceivable permutation of a subject and encourage our attendees to attend other presentations in order to gain a well-rounded viewpoint.

  • What if I have a concern about a presenter?

Should you have a concern about a presenter, we ask you to send a note to education@ne-ds.org. All concerns brought to our attention are taken seriously. While we may not share all of the views about our presenters, all information we receive is valuable and we take it all under advisement to make programming decisions, including making changes to our programming if so warranted. If you’d like to leave feedback for a presenter, please visit Feedback

Got more questions not answered here? Send a note to serviceboard@ned-ds.org and we’ll get back to you.

 

 

August 12, 2016: NEDS Presents: Rope Share

 

NEDS Presents: Rope Share August 12, 2016

rope

We’re doing things a little differently this month. We’ve been asked to have more hands on classes and we listened.  We’re kind of tired of formal presentations, too.

So, for the steamy August class, we’ll be having a ropeshare evening. This will not be so much an instructor led forum, but a time to share your rope skills with others, or a time to try out new things. If you’ve been working on something and want others to help figure out a tie, or if you’ve never tied (or been tied) before, it’s a great way to experiment with rope.

We’ll have a few people who will help with basic ties (single/double columns and simple karada) and we’ll have others who will show off their skills with hogties and self-bondage. At the end of the evening we’ll even throw in a few rope games for fun (and prizes).

Bring your rope (we’ll have some to borrow if you don’t have any) and a sense of adventure and join us!

Class starts at 7:30 and runs through 9:30 and is held at the Hyatt House in Waltham, MA.  For this class, admission will be $10 for everyone. Vanilla dress, please.

Thanks and Thoughts

The service board of NEDS would like to thank everyone who came out for the picnic today. Although a bit windy, the food and company were amazing.

We were fortunate to be able to share a day with friends, especially in light of the devastating events of the past day to mar Pride in both Orlando and LA. When we woke up this morning, and started preparing for the picnic, turned on the news, and heard the awful reports, our thoughts immediately turned Orlando and our LGBTQ friends and family. Many of us have friends in Orlando, and certainly many of us have friends and loved ones who will be dealing with this act of violence. We were fortunate in that we were able to spend the day with a large group of friends who understood. Thank you for that.

While we were enjoying a day in the sunshine, our minds and hearts were with the families and friends of those whose lives were taken in such a senseless act of cowardice on what should have been a joyous and unified Pride week. Instead, we must now grieve for such a waste of life and figure out how the turn the anger we feel right now into something constructive. Perhaps later. Right now I want to be angry.

For those in the LGBT community, their families and friends, we offer our sincere and heartfelt support.

Thanks again for today.

NEDS Presents: Beat Me With a Feather- Sensation Play Primer

NEDS Presents: Beat Me With a Feather- Sensation Play Primer

Sensation play is often overlooked in BDSM and dismissed by sadists as “fluffy bunny bdsm”. However, sensation play can often be more evil than any cane.

Sensation is more than just “stingy v. thuddy”. It is about using all kinds of sensation (and even lack of sensation) to contribute to, or even to become, your scene.

This presentation will explore your senses, give you ideas on how to combine sensations, how to mind-fuck with sensation and how to use all kinds of sensation to enhance a scene. Some fun games to play with sensation will be shown, and we will also show you how to use easily obtained commonplace items as sensation toys.

Feathers are optional.

About our Presenter: SilverDreams is a beet-negative, bratty, opinionated, switch who likes to laugh in the dungeon. A long time member of NEDS and NELA, she’s presented for both groups and at the Fetish Fair Fleamarket and Bound in Boston. She blogs about D/lg dynamics, shoes, and whatever strikes her funny at nakedconfusion.com.

NEDS Presents: Oh my, STI’s! – March 11th, 2016

Oh my, STI’s! Are they really out there!

YES!

Sexually Transmitted Infections truly do exist and if you are sexually active and/or play with bodily fluids then you are at risk.

Please come join me (along with justDerek’s sarcasm) in an in depth conversation about Sexually Transmitted Infections and how they effect us in the BDSM lifestyle.

In this class we will discuss:
Quick overview of some of the most common STI’s.
When and where to get tested.
How to communicate with your provider and what tests to ask for.
The effects on us and the ones we interact with and care for.
How to effectively communicate with your partner(s) about testing and STI’s.

We will also discuss some common and not so common forms of protection (examples will be available to view and touch). When it comes down to STI’s, it’s actually quite simple. Protect yourself, your partner(s), and your loved ones. We are all adults; therefore, we should all practice self responsibility and take all steps necessary to keep ourselves and each other safe.

So come on down and let’s expand our knowledge together to help foster safe and healthy interactions. Please feel free to ask questions and/or share your experiences.

See you there!

MOD NOTE: It’s also our annual meeting so we’ll begin promptly at 7:30 pm sharp! Thank you! – NsV

NEDS Presents: Chastity and Orgasm Control – January 8th, 2015

Chastity is one of the most intimate, controlling, and powerful type of play around. Chastity really brings the entire 24/7 fantasy to reality. This class will cover all aspects of chastity play ranging from Tie & Tease to Lock & Leave. Together we will define what a chastity device is, what it can do in a relationship, and how orgasm control and chastity are related but separate at the same time. We will also talk about different chastity devices, the pros and cons of each type, general health issues, and more.

Bio:
Jillian is one of those unique presenters that you have to experience. She has a quick wit, dirty mouth, and keeps you entertained the entire time. She started playing in bondage when she was a young child, using rope and handcuffs with everyone. She later found the public scene in 1997, jumping in with both feet. In 2000 she was the host of the infamous play party in Attleboro, Massachusetts that was raided by police. This became known as “Paddleboro” (the police considered a wooden spoon to be a “dangerous weapon”). In 2005 Jillian founded Locked in Steel, makers of chastity belts and stainless steel bondage items. Jillian sold the business in 2009 and now enjoys traveling to events around the country, meeting new people, and playing with her wife as much as possible.
