NEDS Presents: The Masochist Mantras, Friday, April 8, 2022

Do you have a desire to improve how to process pain to enjoy that scene even more or enjoy it longer? Do you want to be able to adjust to different types of play, toys, and tops? Within my own growth as a masochist, I have collected a series of tips and techniques that have helped me process more pain, enjoy longer scenes, and adjust to different types of play. Through this class I will share what I found and how I use these tips to increase my pleasure. It may not make a masochist out of you, but it’s just might be a step in the right direction.

My Bio:

Hi, I am DrPhenix, reborn out of the ashes of hell with tears that have the power to heal. They say talk about not only what you know, but what you are passionate about. I have been in the BDSM lifestyle for Nearly 15 years both in private and in the public community.  I am passionate about this community and doing what I can to educate and support those that feel comfortable or want to explore the s-side of the slash. I enjoy talking and educating others in areas that I am passionate about including bottoming as a masochist, submission, and bootblacking. Over the last couple years, I have really grown in the lifestyle.  I have attended conferences, discussions, and helped support s-types through discussions and support meetings.  This expanded my passions to include educating and supporting the larger BDSM community.

Statement from the NEDS Board

Good day,

NEDS as an organization, supports the Black Lives Matter movement.

The NEDS board wanted to put together a few things in a statement, first and foremost.  We would like to apologize for not issuing a statement earlier, we should have spoken up as soon the terrible tragedy with George Floyd and the countless other people of color at the hands of police and systemic racism which has been rampant in our country for far too long.  We understand that by not making a statement, by staying silent we have been complacent.  This behavior needs to change and we need to be better.  We do not want to make excuses in this, only a promise to be better in the future.

As part of this, we are rededicating to outreach to POC and LGBTQ+ groups and organizations to see what help we can provide. We are committed to making our space and our organization more accepting and inclusive.  This is a struggle for many organizations and we need to be better.

Next, happy Pride!  This month is the celebration of pride and this year is perhaps more important than prior years as our country and the world is going through a global pandemic and human rights crisis of systemic racism.  We want to remember what happened at Stonewall (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stonewall_riots) and remember that violence against Gay and Trans people are still disproportionately high.

The board also recognizes, except for announcing cancelling of classes, we have been silent for too long during this pandemic.  At this time we do not believe it is safe or responsible to pull together large groups of people for a class in a physical setting.  When we went into this, many experts said a few weeks to a month of social distancing, so we believed one or maybe two months of cancelled classes.  Obviously, this information was incorrect.  As such we are going to start exploring online classes hosted by NEDS to bring in discussions from presenters who have offered their services.  Please look for upcoming announcements.

The Dichotomy of M/s and Love – A Panel Discussion

CLASS DESCRIPTION: The Dichotomy of M/s and Love

At its core, an M/s relationship is a structured, unequal relationship. It may involve kink, play, service, or a myriad of other elements. But can love exist within an M/s relationship and if so, how? Can love support and even enhance any of these elements? Bring your questions and come hear the stories, trials, and triumphs of three M/s couples: each have love and M/s in their relationships and each came to M/s and love via different paths.
