Four lessons you will not forget at the Rome BDSM Conference

Teacher with cane

In a matter of days, from March 3rd through the 5th, the Rome BDSM Conference will bring together deviants from all over the world for a new edition of the largest kinky educational event in Europe. I have raved quite enough already about my wonderful experience there last year – and the year before, come to think of it – so I won’t repeat myself about what it is like.

This post is actually to let you know that this time I will join the presenters (including a multiple Guinness record title holder for whip skills, Robert Dante) with no less than four different talks and workshops. Here are their official descriptions:

 

Consent, negotiation and safeword
Three cornerstones of any happy BDSM experience, from occasional sessions to 24/7 relationships.
But are you really sure you know them as you should? The legal and social implications, the conflict prevention tools… and an ethical approach that helps fighting gender-based crimes.

 

How to get electrocuted like a pro
50% of electroplay is a mind game. The remaining half can kill you in a tenth of a second – or make you experience unparalleled feelings of pain and pleasure. We’ll cover all of these three parts, discovering technical notions, instruments and those secret spots that, when stimulated…

 

Reality-based toiletplay
Yeah, yeah; it’s gross, you’d never do it and all that… So why does it sit squarely among the top five kinky fantasies worldwide? And what’s the real deal with its (alleged, real, overblown or underestimated) health hazard?
In this clearly NOT hands-on talk we are going to sort the facts from the – ahem – shit while figuring out how to balance fantasies and practical concerns.

 

Reality based flogging
Can’t manage a florentine flogging if your life depended on it? Well, you’re in luck, for having fun with cat o’ nine tails and other floggers requires (mostly) a whole different set of skills.
We are going to explore everything from choosing the right toy to proper aftercare, cutting through the bullshit and reclaiming the sensuality of this kind of play.

 

Are you curious now? In that case, class will be starting in Rome next weekend. Latecomers will be disciplined, of course…
