Thank you and followups!

 

KinkForAll Denver was fantastic and is now over. Nevertheless, this page and its related pages will continue to evolve!

 

The event was a wonderful success! The headcount during closing essential communications (the last session of the day) was 47 people, and we estimate that there were somewhere along the lines of 100 participants at some points during the day, with over 40 sessions throughout the day! Although the event itself is over, this is just the beginning. Some things to do now are:

 

 

KinkForAllDenver - Feb 25th

 

On Sat, Feb 25th from 10a - 5p, converge on the Tivoli's Baerresen Ballrooms to talk about sexuality, gender, relationships, and anything & everything to do with them! KinkForAll Denver is free, all-ages, locally organized and open to the public. We'll be teaching each other, sharing resources, making connections, and exchanging ideas about the many intersections between sexuality and the rest of life. Join us!


There are no spectators, only participants. KinkForAll Denver is about you, your communities, and what you have to say. Come with a 20 minute presentation, workshop, skillshare, discussion topic, or another idea you want to share OR come lend a hand with timekeeping, greeting, video recording, translation, interpreting, childcare, clean-up, etc. Bring artwork.

Personal community mapping, relationships as drag, and I don't really understand TCP/IP as a framework for understanding consent, but maybe I should know more about it.  Also how do you learn techniques from others and still draw the line of boundaries? And how do you navigate a relationship in order to find win-win-win (win) outcomes in a multifacet relationship?

I'm really looking forward to KinkForAll Denver because these topics sound like they have sooo much potential to spark really interesting conversations! I'm particularly excited about Eveybird's "Sexuality and Mental Health" idea, as well as Isaac's "Designer Flesh" topic. Also, I'm curious about Isaac's "non-sensual sadism vs sensual dominance" idea because I can't tell what that's supposed to be, and it seems like it can go in a number of different directions. If you're reading, Isaac, would you be willing to tell us more about what you're thinking along those lines? :) Interested minds want to know!

In the spirit of more effective communication, and thanks the group discussion, I renamed the idea; Sensual Dominance: Exploring the Prejudice in Education.
Originally it related to the idea of having the concept of the loving, caring, sexually dominant who is invariably male and his alter ego the strict, merciless disciplinarian who is sadistic, with no room for those who engage otherwise. It leaves little room for those of us who experience power exchanges more fluidly, or who play outside that very small but very visible box, and that very thinking ends up relegating women to either sex object and "toys" or sex workers for men who are too weak/afraid/etc to embace the "loving dominant" within them. Much of this expression is one of conditioning and is reinforced through language and word choice. A different way of thinking of it is that early experiences with sexual relationships involving power exchange are through books which put the reader through the male gaze, and so they adopt this practice as the "normal thing to do".

Oh that sounds FASCINATING. Thanks for expanding on this, Isaac. :)

For those who are curious, I think the group discussion referenced in Isaac's comment, above, is referring to this: https://groups.google.com/group/kinkforall/browse_thread/thread/71290eb929264fb3
