BDSM 101: 50 Shades of Taboo @ Taboo Tabou - 2nd floor
Feb 28 @ 1:00 AM – 3:00 AM

Artist: Antonio Biella http://eroticartlover.blogspot.com/2011/04/antonio-biella-s-cartoon-style.html?zx=e2235f6805c7c1fd

The book 50 Shades of Grey brought S&M out of the shadows and into the spotlight.  It also left many of us wondering how to safely incorporate all those delicious things we read about into our own bedrooms.

In this class Ken and Sunny take you through the elements of BDSM: Bondage & Discipline, Dominance & Submission and Sadomasochism. They also cover pre-negotiation/contracts, toys & tools, role-play, meeting other kinksters, the differences between BDSM and abuse, physical and mental safety plus much more.

Whether you aim to dive in  in to the BDSM lifestyle or simply want to incorporate a little kink in the bedroom, you’ll walk away with the tools and confidence you need to get and give the most out of kinky play.

This class is suitable for those single or partnered. Persons of all gender identities, sexual orientation, kink interests and activity levels welcome.

Pre-purchase your tickets here:  http://www.thealleychicago.com/servlet/the-template/Events/Page

Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

Ethical Non-Monogamy: Navigating Open Relationships @ Meow University at Good Gyrll Studio
Jun 30 @ 9:00 PM – Jul 1 @ 12:00 AM

Polyamory workshop ChicagoIt seems everyone’s talking about non-monogamous relationships these days.  Polyamory has recently been featured on prime time news shows, magazine covers and reality TV programs.  If you’ve thought about exploring some form of non-monogamy, you’ve probably wondered:

Is there a difference between and open relationship and a polyamorous one?   How do swinging and group sex factor in? What is the appropriate way to approach someone for a threesome? How is jealousy managed with multiple partners? Isn’t “open-relationship” just a fancy term for cheating?  Are people poly because they like to have lots of sex?  How I talk to my partner about opening up our relationship?  What happens if I get jealous? 

There is no magic formula for an open relationship or one right way to be poly. In this workshop Ken and Sunny explain different types of non-monogamous relationships and give you tools to craft and maintain a relationship that’s right for you (and them!).

 

This class is through Chicago’s Meow University

And will take place at:

Good Gyrrl Studio
1200 W 35th St
Chicago, IL 60609

Eventbrite ticket page and additional details coming soon!
