NEDS Presents – Writing Erotica: Imagining Dominance/submission with Mistress Sky, 13 July 2018

A recent poll of Americans who have seen the movie, 50 Shades of Grey, revealed that 70%, male and female, fantasize about being dominated. I’ll present my own findings in power exchange erotica. I’m always looking for fiction that has excellent relationship dynamics versus poorly presented or unhealthy ways of relating. Bring a pen and pad and we’ll write a brief scene together. Bring a favorite scene from a novel and we’ll analyze it for its healthy (or not so great) D/s (M/s) relationship bones.

NEDS Presents SaraScalper – Coming Out: What? Who? Why? Where? How? – 11 May 2018

Coming Out: What? Who? Why? Where? How?: Everyone knows that “coming out” regarding anything (being LGBTQ+, kinky, non-monogamous, etc.) is difficult and potentially life-changing, but not everyone is aware of the potential consequences of
not “coming out.”

Lifestyle sadist/dominant, kink educator, and mental health professional Sara Scalper will use this class to talk about what “coming out” means, the repercussions of not coming out, and the stresses related to coming out, and will additionally offer tips for coming out and techniques for self-care during the coming out process.

They will also talk about coming out regarding consent violations, as these occur frequently in our community and folks often face similar stresses when choosing whether or not to reveal what has happened to them, as well as similar repercussions when they do not reveal them.

Whether you’re so out of the closet that the door’s locked behind you or you’re in the back of it behind all of the coats, come join us as we discuss something that affects the lives of everyone in the kink community.

My bio:

Sara Scalper is a queer, nonmonogamous non-binary femme and ethical sadist who has been topping since 2002, has been involved in the kink community since 2004, and has been a part of the Boston community since 2010. They self-identify as 75% intersexed being, 20% Amazonian woman, and 5% primal male (these identities are constantly in flux), but are always 100% ethical sadist.

Primarily a physical sadist and impact top, they also get great pleasure from being a ”scene aunt” to newer folks in the scene, teaching them how to top safely (via classes or one-on-one instruction) and/or how to negotiate so they have safe, satisfying scenes.

Sara has taught for NELA at several Fleas and at/for NH Kinky Con, Bound in Boston, Boston Invasions at the Society, Trans Spectrum Kinksters, Paingasms at the Society, MOB, Boston TNG, BKC, and Wicked Women.

They are honored to be teaching at their first NEDS event! They can often be found with their lovely wife and collared submissive, AJ (who often helps them present their classes!), and their extended ”kinky family,” and love to talk ethical nonmonogamy as much as they do BDSM.

NEDS Presents BDSM and the Law Part 2 – Annual Member Meeting

 

******PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF VENUE********

March’s Class and Meeting will be held at the Embassy Suites in Waltham, MA.

An open question forum with a Massachusetts Attorney on the intersects of BDSM and the law (this is purposely open ended as the intersects can range from Criminal to divorce and everything in between). While everything has the potential to intersect kink/bdsm with the law, the main areas that seem to come up are: What is consent? What affects someone’s ability to consent?, how does my being kinky affect me: in a divorce, with a paternity action, in a child support/custody matter?, with DCFS? With work? in court?

What do I tell me Doctor about my bruises (routine exams vs emergency)?; What should I tell the police if they want to talk to me about the bruises (or anything else)?, If I tell my doctor ALL about my lifestyle, can anyone else see that? What about my therapist? Can I be committed (psychiatric) for engaging in lifestyle activities? and any other questions you may have, I may not have the answers,to everything, but we can discuss it and have some fun in the process.

Attorney Adam Phipps has practiced in Massachusetts since 2011. Prior to becoming an Attorney Adam worked as a Registered Nurse for more than twenty years (emergency department, ICU, and management). He handles a general civil practice: (Civil rights, Discrimination, mental health litigation, police misconduct, Family law (Divorce, custody, restraining orders), Landlord-Tenant, medical-legal consulting as an expert Registered Nurse. He identifies as non-binary and is comfortable with any pronouns. He considers himself a progressive intellectualist with a love of politics, history and old movies

NEDS Presents: Knife Play with MzBugz – Friday, January 12, 2018

What does a KNIFE do for you?

Knives elicit many different responses. Many of those reactions excite me as a kinkster; fear, arousal, anticipation, excitement, anxiety, rapid heartbeats, giggling, even relaxation. This class will cover safety of and the risks of playing with knives, how to select a knife that works for you, caring for and proper cleaning of your knife(vies). Through demonstration there will be examples of techniques that can be used to elicit intended reactions.

A female identified pansexual polyamorous Top heavy hedonistic switch.

NEDS Presents: Better Blow Jobs – Friday, December 8, 2017


No two blowjobs are alike, whether your guy is looking for low and slow or fast and furious, this session will give you the tools you need to deliver a Class A blow job every time. Some of the things we will talk about:

-Anatomy (his and yours)
-Negotiation (what’s the end goal? how does he like it? What are you comfortable with? Active or passive participation)
-Blowjobs as a BDSM tool
-Technique (lips, teeth, tongue, breath, hands, balls, deep/shallow, sloppy/dry and more)
-The Big Finish (foreplay or the main event? spit or swallow?)
-Aftercare

There will be a live female demo bottom (the fabulous sepiessa with a strap-on) for demonstration purposes. There will also be plenty of time for discussion.

Whether you are hesitant about your cocksucking skills or a pro looking for some new tricks and tips, please join us for an educational and thought provoking class that is sure to bring delight to both you and your partner.

This is NOT a Hands-On exercise! tenacioustoy DOES NOT need a demo bottom nor will she give “private lessons” or tutor in any way. Please do NOT solicit tenacioustoy in ANY WAY prior to, or after the event.
tenacioustoy has been an active kinkster for more than 30 years and loves to share her knowledge about play and navigating relationships in the kink and the vanilla worlds. As a submissive, providing knowledge-as-a-service is a huge kink that everyone can benefit from. tenacioustoy facilitates discussion based classes and has that certain knack for creating a comfortable atmosphere where people can open up, share and have fun.

NEDS Presents: Flogger Making 101 November 10, 2017

Watch Sassamon make a flogger from scratch. You will observe the steps taken to deliver a high quality leather flogger. The flogger will be for sale at the end of the workshop- proceeds to benefit NEDS. Sassamon will also talk about other impact toys that you can make at home out of some ordinary inexpensive materials. You will learn why they call that big box store “Dom Depot”. The workshop will cover a wide variety of topics from how to select your impact toys, which toys do what, how NOT to use impact toys, etc. Sassamon will also discuss scening with impact toys and how to make it a ‘connected’ scene and not simply a beating.

BIO: Sassamon is a Metrowest resident and self identified townie. He entered the kink scene only six years ago and quickly developed a liking for impact play. He was disappointed with the quality of the floggers available at the local sex shops. He did some research online and taught himself how to make a quality flogger. Shortly after the club debut of the first flogger he made, people started asking for him to make floggers for them. And soon Sassamon Leather was born. Mainly the focus is on using good materials and presenting a solid, quality impact toy. Sassamon is a proud member and supporter of NEDS. He has donated impact toys for each of the NEDS Auctions. He has offered himself as an impact top for each of the auctions and raised nearly $1000 for NEDS through his efforts. Sassamon has also donated floggers to help raise money for the Portsmouth Pride parade and recently sent a flogger to Nashville to help raise money to reopen their kink community center — CPI/The Mark
