Sharp Pleasures

Sharp Pleasures

The idea of incorporating sharp pointy things into scenes sounds both intriguing and intimidating. Dr. Mr. the Maestro and his lovely assistant Ms. Sarah Bellum will present a lecture and demonstration of how to safely and sanely use knives and other sharp objects as part of adult play.

Topics covered will include choosing your toys, safety, negotiation, techniques, and managing the mental and emotional aspects of the scene. No photography permitted.

The Misbehavin’ Maidens

The Misbehavin’ Maidens

Misbehavin’ Maidens is an all female nerd-folk comedy band with a focus on bringing pretty harmonies to the dirtiest of songs.

The group currently consists of four members. While all of the ladies come from a “pirate” background, they like to embrace a wide range of subcultures, often singing songs with references to anime, video games, science fiction, and fantasy, in addition to their repertoire of folk tunes and shanties about sex and drinking.

The group performs exclusively for adult audiences, as their main goal is to entertain those who are young at heart, but who have their minds in the gutter.

Why Maidens Misbehave

Well behaved women rarely make history, and The Misbehavin’ Maidens continue that tradition by singing music about sex positivity and women’s rights to change the narrative involving adult folk and folk music. They sing on a variety of topics, with education and feminism being key points; right alongside sex, violence, and Sci-Fi. This panel will be focusing on why they do what they do, and why it’s important for women to get up on stage and sing about orgasms, Dr Who, and murder. This panel will also feature a Q and A. 18+ recommended due to adult topics and language

Drinking: The Cause of and Solution to Con Horror and Humor

Cattle prods, barrel rolls, and too tight spandex. When you’ve been going to conventions as long as the Maidens, there’s bound to be some good stories involved. Grab a drink, and play a drinking game with the Maidens while they talk candidly about some of their best and worst convention experiences, both individually, and as a group. 21+ to drink/play. 18+ recommended to attend due to adult topics and language.

Kink Track at Wicked

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.”

~ Jeff Mach

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.
