Holidays cause extra stress in everyone’s lives. There are additional expenses, the calendar is full of commitments and the weather is cold and dreary. People that are in non-monogamous relationships have additional challenges to overcome.
Topics will include:
Managing your poly-family calendar(who is going where when)
Pros and Cons of being out to your non-poly family
Budgeting for gift giving, travel, etc
Group Brainstorm about solutions to poly struggles around the holidays
Key ways to relieve stress and anxiety around the holidays
Suggested reading for general poly topics
This session will be geared towards polyamorous relationships, but will likely have value to all structures. The focus of this session will not be a 101 poly class or a how-to, but resources for newer practitioners will be provided.
Skyla is a poly, bi, sadist, domme, babygirl and switch that has been on the kink scene for about 3.5 years. During that time she and her husband have explored many things including polyamory and currently live an ethically non-monogamous marriage. In addition to her husband, Skyla also has a long distance relationship with her submissive. Balancing those relationships and the relationships of her partners’ partners have given her real world training on the topic. In addition to her hands-on training, she also has professional expertise in conflict management, negotiation, interpersonal skills, and risk management. She has presented on polyamory & communication at a handful of conventions and facilitates the Non-Monogamy in New England group.
“You don’t appreciate a lot of stuff in school until you get older. Little things like being spanked every day. Stuff you pay good money for in later life.” ~Francesca Sedgwick
Making an impact…without saying a word!
Impact play is a term used in BDSM for any type of play in which the body is stimulated through an impact (or usually a series of impacts) on the skin in order to create pain. Most of the time the term “impact play” is synonymous with consensual erotic corporal punishment. Read More….
Domino’s Bullwhip University presents Whips 101
Did you know that the crack of a whip is the sound of the popper exceeding the speed of sound? Did you know that a whip’s physics are based on the principle of the conservation of energy along a continuously decreasing taper?
Single tails hold a special place in the hearts and minds of many in the BDSM world. The unmistakable CRACK of a whip turns heads in any dungeon and many will admit to an almost primal reaction to the sound.
Bullwhip University will take you from science to scene and everywhere inbetween when it come to whips.
Whips 101 –
Whips 101 takes a look at the history of whips, different types of whips, and how to use a whip safely in a scene.
We’ll show you what to look for in a high quality whip, how to buy your first whip, and care for it so that it will last a lifetime.
You will learn how to make crackers, replace them, and how to clean them on whips where they are not replaceable.
If your a curious beginner or seasoned whip vetran there is something in Whips 101 that will appeal to you and who knows, you too might just become a crack addict!
From tying up his high school cheerleader girlfriend, to having his Dominant spirit awakened by a spankophile in the early 90’s, Domino has pursued his interests in the BDSM lifestyle for almost three decades. After working with Robert Dante, Sebastian, and Bob Deegan, Domino’s interest in the single tail was heightened with a particular interest in longer whips for both scene and sport cracking. His whip bag holds more than 75 examples of whip craftsmanship from all over the world. Domino is the creator and host of The Bullwhip Lounge, a day long whip extravaganza at NELA’s Fetish Fair Fleamarket and has presented at many local and national events including Black Rose, The Floating World and Leather Reign.

NEDS Second Annual Service/Silent Auction for Charity
Saturday, September 26, 2015
Please join us for our 2nd Annual Service Auction! Last year we raised $3,000 for three amazing charities: The Network/La Red, The Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health and the American Cancer Society. We had over a dozen amazing people go up for auction to raise money and have some fun and connecting scenes. We also had many items from crafters, artisans and vendors who donated their fine wares, event tickets and services for the silent auction.
We’re looking forward to doing this again, even bigger this year and are looking for kinksters to “brave the block” to help us raise some money for charity. The registration form is live and you must register before the auction date. (Want to see some kudos from 2014?- Check it out!) This year’s auction is sure to be just as exciting as last year’s. The amazing Skyla and Pqwinny will once again be the Mistress and slave of Ceremonies, with their usual brand of humor, grace, style and mischief. Join us and bid on scenes offered by truly wonderful people, and bid on silent auctions items from some of the best artisans and companies who have graciously donated to this event. Interested in donating to the silent auction? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll happily provide a receipt for your item and we’ll be posting links to all the amazing sponsors!

Your deepest fantasy, and what you have longed for your whole life, is to give yourself completely to that special Domme/Dom, or to use and train your sub/pet exactly to your liking.
But, you want a relationship too – one filled with love, respect, and time for other hobbies and a career, family, and friends. Is it really possible to make a 24/7, D/s dynamic work in the chaos of the 21st century? Read More…
Sometimes the world of BDSM seems very straight forward. Tops and bottoms, sadists and masochists. Clear cut roles and titles for everyone. But what happens when your playmate(s) and scenes don’t follow traditional trends? What happens when the bottom doesn’t particularly want to obey, and you enjoy that?
Join NEDS and JustCatie for a night of Disobedient Bottoms and the Tops that Love Them- Continue Reading
