This class is near and dear to my heart (pun intended). We will be taking a look at blades of all kinds and their use in BDSM. There will be a couple of lectures before play time. This event is clean and sober, no alcohol, drugs or smoking allowed. This event is open to anyone 18 years or older. IDs with proof of age will be required at door.
RSVP to Ken Melvoin Berg’s email [email protected] by no later than noon on 3/28/12 for the info on location of The Studio.
There will be a lecture by Happy-Venom, who is an expert on many subjects including knife combat, weapon choice, knife care, hygiene and safety.
Happy-Venom has been kinky for most of his life, going back to when he used to tie up his female schoolmates like he was a cartoon villain, suspend them by ropes in barns, or dress them up in tack-and-saddle and smack them with riding crops in what was purely innocent fun. Sure it was. Happy-Venom likes has enjoyed hitting things since he was a kid. He has been boxing, wrestling, and practicing martial arts for more than 30 years, used to do crazy shit like fought in cages, traveled to distant lands to shoot people and blow stuff up, and wrangled drunkards in biker bars. Now he does more humanitarian activities like train fighters and security personnel on how to beat people up more efficiently. He has also been involved professionally in kink since learning there actually was such a thing, back in the late ‘80s in Europe. There, he got into teaching dominatrixes how not to kill people when choking them unconscious, as well as getting paid to beat people for fun. He’s done that off and on since then, in one way or another, and still occasionally dusts off his interrogation equipment for fun and profit.
We will also have a special “Dexter Room” for extra messy play during this event.
Play party to follow the demos/lecture. Have fun, play safe and you are welcome to bring your toys but remember that any knives over 3″ are NOT street legal.
This event is limited to the first 50 people that RSVP by email to [email protected]. Putting you are Going on the Facebook or Fetlife event will NOT be enough to secure your spot if it sells out.
“… live with a man 40 years… share his house, his meals, speak on every subject… then tie him up and hold him over the volcano’s edge. On that day, you will finally meet the man.”
This will be an all day event on Saturday 7/28/12 ~ Part One: from 2pm to 6pm in Chicago’s Chinatown. Part Two: from 9pm to 3am at The Studio.
Part One will involve a guided group trip to Chicago’s Chinatown for Firefly Cosplay costume shopping and for eating delicious Chinese food (and of course mischief and fun). You must cover your own costs separately for this part of the day. The time we will do this will be from 2pm to 6pm.
This will be a Firefly BDSM Cosplay event from 9pm to 3am that will include a Cooperative (NOT COERCIVE!!!!) interrogation scene involving multiple people Adelai Niska style.

It 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

Chicago, IL 60609
