About Our Program:
Playing with terror is an extremely intense form of edgeplay that reaches into the darkest recesses of the human mind. It taps into our most primal parts, so manipulating it can place a scene on exciting and dangerous ground. Terror play can illicit strong and, sometimes, illogical and unpredictable reactions from both the bottom and the top. Learning how to use fear as a method of edgeplay while mitigating the potential for possible mental and physical damage is like walking a razor's edge.
In this class, tops will learn how to get into a bottom's head and (consensually) exploit their deepest fears. Bottoms will be learn tools to effectively discuss, negotiate, and engage in fear play as safely as possible. Expect the unexpected, as this class will teach you how to safely incorporate terror as an intensely connective form of mindfuck and give you the tools to use it as the basis of an edgeplay scene.
Due to the intensity of the topic, this class is not recommended for beginners in the world of BDSM. Class attendees should arrive already understanding the concepts of RACK, scene negotiations, BDSM safety, and aftercare (i.e.: know all the rules before learning to bend them). Also, fair warning, some may find the demo presentation and subject matter for this class disturbing. After all, that is the entire point.
About Our Presenter
Miss Lola Sunshine is really just your average, garden variety queer, high femme, switch, slut, sexworker, pervert, and burlesque performer. She enjoys destroying dichotomies, dissecting absolute truths, and dismantling heteronormativity. She believes in sex, glitter, excellent manners, and cooking with real butter. She is Ma'am to a very devoted Sailor and Mommy to an adorable little lost boy. She lives, works, and plays in the SF Bay Area with her dog Cupcake and over 90 pairs of shoes.
Lola is a co-host of the San Francisco Littles Munch, the SF Citadel's People of Color focused party Vibe and makes all the food for both Transmission and Queer Invasion at the SF Citadel. She is an active member of San Francisco girls of Leather and the Exiles. She also teaches classes in human doll play, and behavior modification through D/s oriented historical discipline.
Society of Janus programs are open to all attendees 18 years of age and older who have a personal positive interest in BDSM. You do not need to be a member to attend.
