Rituals of Kink
What is ritual, and what is its purpose? How can we use ritual to enhance our experience of kink? From fetish outfits, to setup and cleanup routines, to complex D/s protocol, kink is full of ritual language. Let’s look at rituals both sacred and secular, and explore how actions can speak louder than words.

What We’ll Cover:
• Liability concerns for groups and events from criminal and civil perspectives
• Trauma, including
• various ways people react (some might surprise you)
• the “do’s and don’ts” of what to say and
• the best ways to be supportive.
• Dealing with consent incidents – from developing a consent policy to handling sanctions when it’s violated.
Who Should Attend:
Everyone, actually. Certainly, anyone who falls into the categories listed above will benefit from the information in this discussion. However, understanding these components is of equal value when evaluating personal risk tolerance as an attendee.

Learn the things you need to know right away so you can build your confidence and have fun while you continue to add skills and techniques to your hypnotic tool kit.

He is also the author of the books Mind Play: A Guide to Erotic Hypnosis and The Mind Play Study Guide, the first hypnosis books written expressly for the kink community. In mundane life Wiseguy is a professional hypnotist, a teacher of professional hypnotists, and an avid woodworker.

Lady Ayesha has been active in the community for over 4 years. She has taught on the Art of Negotiation. She describes her style of play as connective impact and ranges from heavily sadistic to mindful introductory impact.

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.

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.
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.
