The Art of Consent

In light of the #metoo movement, there has been a lot of discussion in public spaces about consent. It’s become a household word, even in the most conservative of homes. But really, what is it and how do you make sure you have it?

In this panel, we will discuss everything regarding consent: consent culture, negotiation, communication of consent and boundaries, and yes, even what to do if someone tells you that you violated their consent. There will also be a Q&A at the end. This panel may contain language and topics of a triggering nature.

Mental Bondage

Traditional bondage is the restraint of a consenting partner using physical means – handcuffs, rope, cuffs, and the like. But that isn’t the only way to bind your partner! Mental bondage is the act of restraint using less obvious tools such as willpower, commands, or even the vivid imagination of your partner. It’s used by all kink skill levels from beginner to I’ve-done-this-my-whole-life, and it is especially good in cases where you or your partner can’t or does not wish to be physically restrained for any reason. (PTSD, injury, bodily limitations, location, or even safety concerns are all reasons physical bondage may not be an option.)

This is an interactive workshop, so attendees are encouraged to bring a consenting partner for learning and practice. Participation is completely optional, so even if you want to just come listen in, please do!

Kink Track at Wicked

“Kink is like an excellent cup of hot tea, in the it’s quite wonderful and you should have more of it.”

Wicked Faire’s famous Kink Track returns with workshops, demonstrations, and deliciously deviant education!  (This area will contain full and partial nudity, and is 18+).

Here is a list of the various flavors of kinky content tracks you’ll see at this year’s Wicked Faire:

Kink 101

“Kinky is when you use a feather. Really kinky is when you use the whole duck. However, there is a certain amount of knowledge in recognizing that you could simply eat the duck and buy a flogger, instead.”~ Malaclypse the Younger

The Wicked Faire is not a kink event, per se, but it’s a home for all manner of kinky people. Kink is often an undercurrent at many Renaissance faires; at the Wicked Faire, we take pride in who and what we are, and we’re glad to teach it to experts and newbies alike!  If you want a safe, welcoming place to explore your kinky side, might we suggest you join us for this beginners’ track?

Advanced Kink

“I don’t know what advanced kink is, but I rebuilt my castle so that it had a second dungeon. Does that count?”~ Bowser, Evil Boss, Super Mario Brother Brothers

The Wicked Faire gets all manner of kinky attendees from “never done before it but totally curious” to “this has been my life for 30 years.” Our Advanced Kink track includes classes for experts and experienced people who’d love to take things to the next level.

Rope

“Bind the body, and you bind the mind.” ~ Sun Tzu

Rope is one of the most versatile tools in any kinkster’s repertoire – it is a not just a method of bondage, but also an extension of will and an exploration of the sense of touch. Really, there’s nothing like the feel of rope on the body to take you to new places in your mind and life, whether you be the tie-er or the tie-ee. Let us share our rope with you!

Impact Play

“You wouldn’t recognize a good thing if it was spanking your ass.”~ Kresley Cole, Kiss of a Demon King

Floggers, whips, and paddles, oh my! Impact play is a strikingly fun and sensual adventure. Come learn about how to do the right kind of impact with your partner to raise their endorphins, get the blood flowing, and wake your kink up! Or, you know, just leave a good impression.

Edgeplay

“I like living on the ragged edge of danger.” ~ Al Capone

What, exactly, is edgeplay? Technically speaking, it is play that pushes the safety boundaries of traditional kink. We prefer to think of it as that fine line between night and day, waking and dreaming, life and death. Explore the darkest, more dangerous areas of your kinky play with us.

Hypnosis

“The erotic state – again, a mixture of concentration and spontaneity – is a hypnoidal state, probably the most powerful kind that we are capable of experiencing, and it is in this condition that unexpected regions of the self are revealed, as the majority of people know from experience.” ~ Peter Redgrove

Just as many of us enjoy playing with our partner’s body, many also enjoy playing with their mind. Hypnosis, the act of altering mental consciousness, can be intensely intimate in ways you may never have experienced before. Does the dark unknown of hypnosis call to you? Come to us to experience and learn.
