ONLINE: Flirting With Darkness: Erotic Shadowplay
NOTE: This will be an online class via Zoom. Zoom information will be sent to all participants one hour before the event.
In this erotic edgeplay class, we dive deep into what shadow work is, how and why darkness fuels our desires, and what to do with it. The ethics, practices, and aftercare of shadow edgeplay and eroticizing darkness will be discussed and participants will be challenged to question what their own shadow contains. We will explore common edgeplay desires including consensual non-consent, dark age play, blood play, and beyond and discuss the psychology behind their appeal as well as risk aware avenues for expressing these desires. This class offers a comprehensive look into how to flirt with our inner darkness and come through on the other side.
Nil is a San Francisco based trans, indigiqueer witch, rope bender, and curator of spiritual-sexual synchrony. They exist in the liminal spaces between boundaries, in the space where the most elusive of desire resides. Nil first found love in the natural fibers of a well-spun rope while at Girl Scout camp, and theyve been tying ever since. Nil relishes all ends of the rope as a rigger, self-suspender, and artistic masochistic. Interweaving the sacred into practice and play, Nil is a proud purveyor of all things creepy and curious. Nil regards kink as the ultimate artistic catharsis and uses their craft to banish gender, fracture binaries, and conjure queerness to challenge the norm. They are intrigued by the darkness behind why we play and exploring how sexual subversion creates avenues for self expression. Their classes take on the quality of the why behind what we do with a penchant for digging deep into our intimate experiences with kink, strengthening community, and creating unapologetic space to break rules and get weird. Nil can be found presenting and performing around the Bay Area, at events and conferences across the country and online.
$15 - $35. Advance tickets required through Brown Paper Tickets.
