Event Details

 

Ready to willingly dip your toes into challenge, anticipation and dilemma? This class will introduce playful predicaments designed to keep one guessing (and choosing) in frustratingly fun ways. Using rope and other kinky tools, simple concepts of predicament play will be explained and demonstrated along with more complex scenarios to inspire your own creativity.

As well as exploring predicaments that focus on pain or discomfort, we will also look at ideas which play with exposure, balance, and pleasure – predicaments for different moods.

Who is this event for?

LGBTQIA+ describes the full spectrum of non-mainstream sexual orientation and/or gender identity, meaning: lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, non-binary, genderqueer/fluid, queer, intersex, asexual, aromantic, agender.

Friends describes people of any and all kinds of gender and sexual identities who are aware and respectful of the necessity, needs, and boundaries of a queer safe(r) space and its marginalized community.

When you consider yourself a friend you show acknowledgement to and are respectful of everyone’s self-expression and do not assume, presume or project non-consensual ideas onto others. You actively request and use people’s chosen pronouns. You remain mindful of the fact that Karada House is first and foremost a space for queer people that you are also invited to attend. You have a genuine concern for the well-being of LGBTQIA+ people and remain in awareness of heterosexual and gender straight privileges.

Friends don’t have to be perfect. None of us are. We request that we all pro-actively work and strive to be good friends and allies to marginalized people.
