ONLINE: Electrical Play Q&A
Note: This will be a live, online class offered through Zoom. To participate, you will need to download the free, basic version of the Zoom app before the class!
Come join us on April 20th for a group Q & A discussion covering electricity play!
Scenes that incorporate electricity can be intense, versatile, surprising, and (of course) fun... but also confusing and a little scary to newcomers. A lot of questions come up:
- Isn't electricity dangerous?
- I don't like pain. Won't it just hurt?
- Do all the weird toys and devices wind up doing the same thing?
- Can it be added to other types of play I like?
- Why would anybody do that?
If you've had questions like these then this is the event for you! Reika (Ms. SF Leather 2019) and ColdStorage (Society of Janus) will take your questions and help demystify what's involved, what it's like, where the safety concerns are, and how to get started if you think it might be something you'd like to try. They come to the table with several years of combined experience using electricity and can provide insights for both sides of the slash. Nothing complex or overly technical; just simple, practical info to keep things light and engaging.
The main focus will be on e-stim and the various types of wands out there, as these tend to be the more popular topics with the most questions (they're also the easier entry points for those kinksters who are looking to explore). A variety of toys will be available during the Q & A so you can see what they are and ask specific questions.
This course will be in the Zoom webinar format. Questions will be through the Q&A and chat functions.
Reika, Ms SF Leather 2019, is a sadistically fearl kitty who's claws normally always come out to scratch willing prey. She adores supporting the kink and leather community by donating her time and service in any way possible. She's taught a number of classes ranging from power dynamics, types of play such as flogging and impact, and negotiation/safety. She's an ethical player who believes anything is possible with clear communication and a limitless imagination. She's roamed the kink scene for the past 8 years, eagerly sharing her experiences to help others broaden their horizons.
ColdStorage is an officer for Society of Janus, the second oldest kink organization in the United States. He stumbled into electricity play back in 2009 and has been involved in education on the subject for about 5 years. Before the pandemic, you could catch one of his hands-on demos at SOJ's annual EXPLORE event, the monthly Newbie Frenzy at SF Citadel, and the exploratorium evening at Dark Odyssey: Surrender. ColdStorage hails out of San Francisco, uses he/him pronouns, and doesn't like labels but can best be described as a lowercase heavy Switch.
