Cutting Basics

The quiet slice of razor sharp steel into flesh can seem quite harmless until the tiny ruby drops of blood begin to swell along the lines. The attraction to Cutting has been a favorite of people for a long time; from ritualistic cuttings to the use of a blade to help you remember you are alive. Not just a class on technique, but also talking about the psychological effects cuttings can have on people, Tatsumi will show you the basics of using scalples on flesh to achieve designs, spark feelings of euphoria, and help us all remember why we love to bleed.

Living A Poly Life
The thought of having multiple people for play or for love sounds wonderful to some people and horrifying to others.  Living in a polyamourous and polysexual lifestyle for over 12 years, Tatsumi is certainly qualified to tell you about the ups and downs of this lifestyle. She’ll talk about how to find partners, how to make sure that your other partners are involved to calm fears, jealousy, and worry and all the great reasons that these relationships add to your life.

Microbranding Basics
Microbranding, also known as Cell Popping or Devil’s Fire, is an unusual branding technique involving taking a pointed needle that has been heated red-hot and touching it lightly to the surface of the skin for a brief instant. The point of the needle creates a tiny, round, “single-pore” burn on the skin. Hundreds or thousands of these little marks are combined to create a pointillistic design which may persist for several weeks to several months depending on the skin healing capabilities of the individual. A single design can involve thousands of microbrands and can take several hours.

Rape! Turning Fantasies into Reality
Can we pervert this terrible crime into consensual play? Sure we can! Join Tatsumi for an informative discussion on the hows, whys and ways to transform this act of one-way violence into a conspiring adventure for both sides. Literary examples, consensual non-consent, psychological landmines, safewords, facing your inner beast, role-play, next-day regrets and fun, sexy, heady play are just some of the topics this class will cover.

Sex and the Switch
Bisexuals are not confused fence-sitters waiting for the perfect someone to come along and turn them one way or another. Similarly, Switches are not fickle narcissists only interested in their own pleasure. For this class, Tatsumi will share some of her 15+ years of experiences to illustrate that, especially in sex, we can be greedy and need not be locked into any one role. She will describe some of the joys, dilemmas and occasional quandaries inherent in being a sexual servant in some relationships, a domineering diva in others, an equal partner in still others and trying to smoothly transition between them while having a good time and remaining true to herself.

Temporary Piercings — Permanent Memories
Maybe you’re conquering your childhood fear of needles. Maybe you’re a blood fetishist always hungering for more. Maybe you’re looking to further your connection to your partner, to the universe … No matter your motivations, temporary piercing can take you places you’re not likely to forget.
The feel of cold, hard steel stabbing into your tender flesh, forcing a path under the surface and thrust back into the air … Looking at the remaining needles with your name on them and knowing that no one is watching the clock. Time itself seems to stand still as your body prepares for the next sharp invasion. You memorize the look of concentration on your tormentor’s face and welcome the flood of endorphins that accompanies each precisely placed intrusion.
Savoring the rush, relishing the moment, mentally capturing every invigorating second – what could be more memorable?
