ALCHEMY OF SIN BURNING SEED FUNDRAISER – Sun 30 July 2017
Come along, explore yourself, discover new ways to touch, new feelings, new experiences.

WHO WE ARE
Alchemy of Sin is a sex positive camp, bringing our delights to Burning Seed for the first time in 2017! Our aim is to create a place to learn and explore and step outside of any pre-conceived ideas of sex, intimacy and relationships.

Join us for an afternoon of workshops, chai, cuntcakes, kinky fun, and a shibari show to finish the night!

Please note this is an 18+ event

Session 1 Workshops:

YONI MASSAGE: Prepare for a wave of new sensation in this hands-on, technique driven introduction to the connective process that is Yoni massage. You will gain knowledge of anatomy, touch, communication and desire, focusing on the giving and receiving of healing erotic contact. If you come along with a partner then you can learn together, or be paired up in the workshop and discover a new connection. Note: Alchemy of Sin welcomes all genders to their events, however due to the specific anatomic requirements of this class, each person attending will need their own Yoni (Vulva).

BUILDING CONNECTION VIA RESTRICTION: Find ways to connect at a distance. Play with trust and fear, need and control, power and submission. This class will focus on the communication that can be conveyed via ropes, how to enjoy both aspects of tying and being tied, and on the variety of sensation that can be conveyed through different materials.

Session 2 Workshops:

EROTIC LITERATURE: Past, Present, Future Prepare for some hysterical poetry. In this interactive lecture, learn the foundations of erotic literature, hear a few personal favorites from the lecturer, and then it’s time to share the space. Bring your own favorite erotic reading material, original works included! Sign up early, as floor space is limited.

SENSUAL WAX: Sensual, kinky, ritualistic. Connect with your partner, communicate what you like as well as your boundaries. Light the flame, and then… the anticipation, the knowing, the unknowing. Being played, being the canvas, being the muse. The sensation, at times subtle, at times more. In this workshop you will learn the basic rules of communication for play, choosing the right candles, wax safety, and how to create a sensual kinky experience for both you and your partner.

TICKET OPTIONS

* Single Workshop Pass
* Day Passes: choose TWO workshops, (one per session) PLUS Shibari Show PLUS a goodie bag to take the fun away for later!!!
* Shibari ‘Show only’ ticket

AND…
Between each session we will be gifting yummy Chai Tea! 

You’ll also have the opportunity to purchase Cuntcakes, direct from Madame Cuntcakes Sploshing Parlour (unsploshed of course) and beautiful handmade candles, perfect for wax play.

To ensure an intimate experience, workshop numbers are limited, so get in early!!

Another wonderful Rope Chill, with a surprise visit from Avalon…

Another wonderful night at Rope Chill last Tuesday, we had the Casanova of Shibari from Melbourne, Paolo attend and do his wonderful (and shriek inducing) brand of sensual sadism. Beautiful ropes all round from our regulars, and lovely to see new faces attending.

If you’re into #shibari or #rope play in general, with attendees from absolute beginner to some of Sydney’s finest and three levels of suspension points and rope play space, Rope Chill is the place to be on Tuesday nights. Come along, play and skillshare, or just hang out (aha) and socialise or watch the coils of rope unfurl.

See you at the next one!
