Stefano Laforgia: Mastering Rope

Tuesday May 13, 2014 from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm
At the Center for Sex and Culture
$20 per person
Tickets here

Tying fast and tying neat. This workshop focuses on exercising and improving muscle memory in order to achieve better results in the quality and speed of your ties. No matter your level of experience, streamlining the way you move the rope will make a palpable difference to your bottoms; good rope handling is one of the essential tools for making the tying process feel like hot foreplay.
What to bring: 4x 7-8m (23-26ft) 5-7mm natural fiber ropes

About Stefano
Stefano Laforgia is an Italian Rigger and BDSM educator. He started his journey in BDSM at early age, but lived it mainly in private until he moved in Rome in 2000, where he became an active member of the local BDSM community.
In 2005 he quit his office job and decided to live his lifestyle in a public way when he founded Alcova, the first fetish/BDSM shop in Rome. Since then he has worked on various projects, both in Italy and around the world: he was the first to organize bondage classes in Rome, organized play parties and took part in BDSM themed workshops and conferences. In 2011 Stefano founded the first School of Japanese Bondage in Italy, and organized “LegARTI”, the first event in Italy entirely dedicated to Japanese bondage.
His approach to shibari has shifted with time especially since 2008, when he started visiting Japan and met some of the best Japanese kinbakushi, making acquaintances with some of them, including Kinoko Hajime, who Stefano invited to come and perform in Europe for the first time.
Stefano was so fascinated with Japanese bondage that he started to share his views about it with other Italian and international riggers during various events in the following years, contributing to the genesis of a new trend that emphasizes the connection and interaction between the rigger and the bottom. This process clearly shows in the type of ties he uses and through his pictures, where Stefano becomes more and more an active part of the image, a whole with the model, showing the connection, the erotic tension, and the power exchange with the bottom.

This class is for ALL bodies, ALL genders, all orientations, all ages! If you’ve ever thought pole dancing looked fun and you want to try, this is your chance! You don’t have to be skinny or feminine to have fun on the pole!

Erotic Movement is all the amazing sensuous movement used by pole dancers between tricks, burlesque performers, the pussycat dolls, and go go boys every where! It is easy adapted to express your personal style, your mood, any type of music, and any body. :)

**Limited to 12 students** to allow for personal attention and time on the poles!!!

This is a body positive, sex-positive, safe, welcoming, environment.

INFO FOR PARTICIPANTS:

Please bring a water bottle and a small terry hand towel. If you would like to take notes, please bring your preferred materials for that.

Wear layers of clothes you feel good in, that stretch and move with your body. “Stripping” is NOT required however some pole moves require skin-to-pole contact with ankles, shins, knees, and upper thighs. Booty shorts, boykini bottoms, Speedos, wrestling shorts, etc all are good options for those who feel comfortable.

Please be ready to begin at 1pm.

TY all and can’t wait to see you there!

Shibari Sketch
Sunday 4/13
8-11 pm

MORE INFO: http://www.shibarisketch.com

Artists are invited to join the group and create life drawings of models tied in rope bondage (“shibari”). Emphasis is on the unique poses, physical tension, and eroticism that is expressed in the bound human form. To see drawings and photos from the previous sessions please check the Shibari Sketch website.

Shibari Sketch encourages a collaborative atmosphere wherein painters, rope artists, and models can explore the aesthetics of BDSM imagery together. The art of life drawing provides a meditative focus that allows the bondage to happen at a contemplative pace. Audience is invited to watch the scene and has the opportunity to purchase the original drawings.

Each Shibari Sketch Session consists of a “Featured Scene” that is a center stage modeling session with expert rope artists and professional models. Additionally the session includes a “Sketch Salon” that is open to all rope artists and models to participate in and encourages spontaneous creativity and collaboration as well as the opportunity to practice the arts more informally.

Fan Dancing with Balla Fire
Jan 21, 7:00-9:00 pm
 7-9pm
 in SF at Center for Sex and Culture 1349 Mission st, SF CA
$30
Balla Fire has been seen flittering about stages all over the Bay Area and will teach you how to conceal and reveal with your fans. Various techniques and movements will be discussed. Learn to let the fans do the work as you move about, behind, and beneath them. BYO fans if you have them, any fans will do, as will a couple of mead notebooks, trash can lids, large serving platters, or anything your imagination can conjure. Fixed open ostrich feather fans and veiled fans will be used for demonstration, or Balla may snag your trash can lids to share tips and tricks. Small folding fans will also be provided to students. Fan (or trash can lid) dancing doesn’t have to be intimidating. Come dance and giggle with us for the evening.
About this teacher: Miss Balla Fire, cofounder of Sin Sisters Burlesque in Santa Cruz, has left a swath of creative destruction on the burlesque landscape since 2005, a natural progression from the trail of broken hearts and stolen souls from her more vernal and carefree days. Once she began performing, this ingrained pattern of aggressive invasion gave her the social grace to rapidly become one of the premier creative leads in the Bay Area’s rich burlesque scene. Featuring regularly as one of the brightest stars in all Bay Area shows. In her hometown of Santa Cruz, the Sin Sisters reign supreme with one of the biggest and most elegant monthly burlesque shows in the country, on the second Saturday of each month. And they also beckon you to join their glamorous world by offering burlesque classes for all skill levels. For more information (or to get your pants back), see sinsistersburlesque.com.

HOW TO LOSE YOUR VIRGINITY
at CSC

We’re screening the new documentary by Therese Shechter, director of the award-winning and provocative I WAS A TEENAGE FEMINIST.

It has launched both purity balls and porn franchises, defines a young woman’s morality–but has no medical definition. Enter the magical world of virginity, where a white wedding dress can restore a woman’s innocence and replacement hymens can be purchased online.

Filmmaker Therese Shechter uses her own path out of virginity to explore why our sex-crazed society cherishes this so-called precious gift. Along the way, we meet sex educators, virginity auctioneers, abstinence advocates, and young men and women who bare their tales of doing it—or not doing it.

“How To Lose Your Virginity” uncovers the myths and misogyny surrounding a rite of passage that many obsesses about but few truly understand.

Want more information? http://www.virginitymovie.com/about/. Go beyond the film to our V-Card Diaries, a crowd-sourced collection of sexual debuts and deferrals: http://virginitymovie.herokuapp.com/

Dirty Words: a monthly erotic writing playdate

Saturday, 3/22

Open the gates and let your writing voice flow
A half-day erotic writing group open to all
Fourth Saturday of every month
Ever read through a sexy short story and thought, “I’d like to do that!”? In this monthly writing group, you can try your hand at some explicit erotic writing.

Come together with a fun and supportive group of writers and dive into your own sexy and surprising new writing! This group is designed to leave you more confident with sexual language, erotic expression, and your own writing practice. You’ll receive immediate and concrete feedback about what’s already working (and hot!) in your writing, and will leave with several new pieces of work.

Don’t be surprised if you find, as have previous participants, that you’re more comfortable discussing your own sexual desires after practicing writing about fictional sex! Bring your notebooks or laptops and your most open mind.
Unless otherwise noted, this group meets on the fourth Saturday of the month. Fee for this group is $25-50, sliding scale. Limited to 10 writers!

No previous writing experience necessary! Workshops held in San Francisco at the Center for Sex and Culture (1349 Mission St.); pre-registration is required — please write to jennifer@writingourselveswhole.org with questions or to register.
