Polyamory Discussion/Support Group @ SF Citadel


I'm going to be facilitating an ongoing series of support and discussion groups for the marvelous SF Citadel, with the next one being a Polyamory Discussion/Support Group March 24th . For more info see the event listing - and for the rest of the series keep an eye on my own Fetlife page
#

Polyamory Discussion/Support Group

Polyamory is – not to state the obvious – complex. But what is even more challenging is that it is still not wildly accepted, with those in non-monogamous relationships often finding it difficult to find understanding and support. In this discussion/support group, polyamorous individuals and couples will have a nonjudgmental and supportive environment to share their concerns and experiences.

Dates:

March 24th, 2014
May 19th, 2014
July 28th, 2014
September 29th, 2014
November 24th, 2014

Magic Words: Using Erotic Writing To Explore Your Hidden Sexuality And Spirituality

This is going to be a blast!  If you are in San Francisco I'm going to be teaching my fun class, Magic Words: Using Erotic Writing To Explore Your Hidden Sexuality And Spirituality, for the SF Citadel on Tuesday, March 18

Magic Words: Using Erotic Writing To Explore Your Hidden Sexuality And Spirituality

Tuesday, March 18, 2014 · 8:00 PM –10:00 PM

SF Citadel
181 Eddy St, San Francisco, CA

Cost: $20 at door, $15 in advance- see link below for advanced ticket purchase

Dress code: Whatever makes you comfortable!

There are many ways to reach your inner sexual and spiritual self - but one of the most surprisingly powerful paths is through the written word. In this lecture/workshop, participants will hear how erotic writing (fiction as well non-fiction) can reach hidden places that often lay unexposed, help make personal discoveries and to assist in a personal journey of self and sensuality. Participants will learn how to free their erotic writing voices, how to develop their writing towards discovering their erotic spirits within, and when to silence - and when to listen - to the inner critic.

Cost: $20 at the door, $15 in advance via PurplePass

January 23rd, 2014: Teaching Impact Play: Beyond Floggers And Canes for SF Citadel

This is going to be a LOT of fun: I'm going to be teaching my hands - and other body parts - on class on impact play for the SF Citadel, this Thursday.
Impact Play: Beyond Floggers And Canes at the Citadel, in San Francisco
Thursday, January 23rd: 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

SF Citadel Community Center
181 Eddy Street, San Francisco

Cost: $20 at the door, $15 in advance using WePay: https://www.wepay.com/events/sfc-class-01232014'
Dress code: Whatever makes you comfortable

Join this workshop to receive (ahem) 'hands-on' instruction in a wide and sometimes-strange variety of different impact toys hands, hairbrushes, paddles, crops, wooden spoons, batons, quirts, and more. While often the physics of these toys are sometimes closely related, to use each one effectively takes particular skill and techniques that are not immediately apparent. Participants will learn not only how to inflict the most pleasure as well as pain but also how to use each item without hurting the wield-er as well as the wield-ee.
