I am often fortunate enough to have the time available for a visit from Nick and staff members from his businesses. Unfortunately, this semester did not provide us a chance to schedule something. I wanted to toot his horn, though, as he was featured in The Lantern.

Evolved Body Art continues to be the only tattoo business that I “vouch for” because of their adherence to quality standards and their partnerships in a variety of ethical events and organizations. I am proud to call Nick a friend and consider him a colleague in the world of education.

Speaker: Tara McKenzie Allison on September 6, 2016 @ 11:10 am

Attorney Tara McKenzie Allison

Tara McKenzie Allison will be visiting my HDFS 5440 classroom on The Ohio State University Main Campus (Jennings Hall, Room 060) on Tuesday, September 6 from 11:10 am  to 12:30 pm.

Tara is a local attorney who graciously offers her time to my students. Active in the local LGBT community, Tara is a tireless activist supporting equal rights for all people. Her presentation is followed by an informative Question&Answer period. Previous students have described her visit as life changing… and that echoes my sentiments.  She is amazing.

If you are in another instructor’s 5440 or you’ve taken it with me previously… YES, you may come. But it is sometimes standing-room only, so be prepared. If you wish to bring a friend? The same thing applies. Make certain they are adults and tell them that chairs aren’t part of the bargain. Note: guests should not ask questions of speakers unless students have exhausted all of their inquiries.

This IS an extra credit opportunity for students in my 2367 class.

More about Tara:  In 1987, Tara received her undergraduate degree in Marine Engineering, from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis. Following graduation, she served as a Commissioned Officer in the US Navy. After being honorably discharged, Tara worked as a nuclear engineer for over a decade. She is a licensed Professional Engineer. In 1999, she partially completed a MBA degree, at the College of William and Mary, before relocating to Columbus. In 2005, Tara graduated from Capital University Law School, cum laude, passed the Ohio Bar Exam, and was admitted to the Ohio Bar. Following graduation from law school, she has served as General Counsel / Contracts Manager for a mid-sized, construction-industry company, in Lexington, KY. In 2008, she relocated back to Columbus, in order to start her own law practice. She is a member of the Columbus Bar Association and is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. She practices primarily in the areas of domestic/family law, Lesbian, Gay, Bi, and Transgender law, contract law, construction law, and civil litigation. Tara is an active public speaker on LGBT-related issues; she has spoken numerous times at The Ohio State University, The Ohio State University Law School, Capital University Law School, Dennison University, Ohio Northern University, Transylvania University, Columbus Alternative High School, the King Avenue United Methodist Church in Columbus, Ohio, and the LGBT Subcommittee of the Columbus Bar Association. She has been a presenter at the TransOhio Annual Transgender and Ally Symposium (2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011). She has also spoken on LGBT issues at the 2010 Ohio Diversity and Leadership Conference, the 2011 Equality Ohio CAUSE Conference at Columbus State Community College, before the Columbus Community Relations Commission, and the Columbus Police Academy.

Speakers: POWER EXCHANGE with Brenda&arcane and Kevin&katie (March 29, 2016 @ 11:10 am)

mapplethorpe-web

One Form of Power Exchange from the photography of Robert Mapplethorpe (Brian and Lyle 1979)

Two Power Exchange couples will visit my HDFS 5440 classroom on The Ohio State University Main Campus (Townshend Hall, Room 247) Today (March 29nd) from from 11:10 am  to 12:30 pm. to discuss the world of consensual power exchange and stereotypes surrounding it.

These couples use the “Master” and “slave” titles and capitalization conventions in their bios below will reflect that..

If some terminology is unfamiliar, please visit the NCSF (National Coalition for Sexual Freedom) for the Glossary of BDSM they provide.

NOTE: This presentation is about consensual relationships and should not be confused with domestic violence or sexual abuse. If you need -or someone you know needs- help due to a non-consensual relationship, please contact local authorities or a reputable organization such as the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) at  1-(800) 656.HOPE

After a brief introduction, Ms. Brenda  (and her slave, arcane) will join with Kevin (and his slave, katie) to share their stories and may demonstrate some basics of their lifestyle dynamic. No sex acts will take place during this class, of course, but students do have the option of sitting-out the class if they believe it will be triggering. There will be an informative Question&Answer period for students throughout and following the discussion.

If you wish to bring a friend, make certain to tell them that chairs are not part of the bargain. There are just enough chairs for students enrolled in the class. All others should be prepared to grab a comfortable (?) spot on the floor.

 

If you wish to contact these speakers  please contact Anita Parker. I would be happy to forward your information to them.


 Ms. Brenda and arcane

unnamed

Ms. Brenda and arcane are a 24/7 power exchange couple.

She was born and raised in Florida, where she was a professional wrestler, and worked in retail management.  She moved to Ohio in 1996, with her late husband, where they helped start a local munch and educational group.

arcane is a retired massage therapist.  He relocated from Texas to Ohio, in 1997 to marry his late Mistress. She encouraged him to make floggers as a career, which keeps him busy vending and presenting at events all across the country.

They all met through the munch group and both couples became good friends.  After losing their spouses, Ms. Brenda and arcane began dating and were married, complete with collaring ceremony in Feb 2013.

They earned the title of Great Lakes Master/ slave,  they take pride in carrying the titles as education and understanding of the Master/slave dynamic is very important to them.

Kevin and katie

bio pic mudhero

Photo taken at MudHero (http://www.mudhero.com)

Kevin and katie are married, and have enjoyed a M/s relationship for 12 years. They have maintained a loving 24/7 TPE (Total Power Exchange) relationship while surviving raising teenagers, full time employment, a total-loss house fire, correcting huge debt, home renovations, and Alberta winters. Their presentations are a rollicking mix of humor and honesty – like any good scene, you might not be sure whether it feels good, or you should cry.

Kevin has clinical experience watching what makes couples succeed and what causes them to fail. Through moderating Power Exchange discussion groups together, they have heard the real struggles faced by real couples. Their mission is to help people create, maintain and optimize their relationships. They hope to encourage individuals and relationships to grow through proper focus on goals and priorities.

Actual workshop attendees say: “Your workshops were a breath of fresh air and the first meaningful TPE workshops to offer a practical strategic framework as well as some tactical behaviours to underpin it. They were also entertaining without being content-free.” and “Their presentations are so good, I skipped Bow Chicka Wow Wow for one.”

Kevin and katie present at Leather, Power Exchange, and Kink events in both the US and Canada.

Speakers: BONDAGE with BondageNexus and linworth (March 22, 2016)

White Gauze 1984 - Robert Mapplethorpe

“White Gauze” by Robert Mapplethorpe (1984)

BondageNexus and linworth will visit my HDFS 5440 classroom on The Ohio State University Main Campus (Townshend Hall, Room 247) Today (March 22nd) from from 11:10 am  to 12:30 pm. to discuss Bondage and stereotypes surrounding it.

After a brief introduction, Bondage Nexus and Linworth will demonstrate some basic ties and discuss suspension. No sex acts will take place during this class, of course, but students do have the option of sitting out the class if they believe it will be triggering. There will be an informative Question&Answer period for students throughout and following the demonstration.

If you wish to bring a friend, make certain to tell them that chairs are not part of the bargain. There are just enough chairs for students enrolled in the class. All others should be prepared to grab a comfortable (?) spot on the floor.


Bondage Nexus

BondageNexus has enjoyed incorporating rope bondage into his sex life since puberty. In the last ten years he has done bondage in the public kink scene mostly as an outreach to folks who are new to kink in hopes that they can be more comfortable in their love of bondage. If you’ve been to Trauma here in Columbus, you may have already caught one of his performances.

Information about CORG (The Central Ohio Rope Group) is available online.

Examples of a past performance at TRAUMA can be found online as well.


linworth

linworth has been actively exploring the kink world since 2007, and while having all sorts of “deviant” proclivities, has mainly settled into her two favorites of power exchange and rope bondage. While generally the shy, submissive type, she has a passion for education and discussion surrounding consent culture, rope bottoming, and the safe practice of all things kinky.


51MKk3tu-ML._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Readings:

This panel is offered to students along with academic readings on the topic (provided by their professor on Carmen) and classroom discussion.  Special attention will be given to an excerpt from Steve Lenius’ Life, Leather, and the Pursuit of Happiness (Chapter 39, Bondage: the difference between black and gray)

After a brief introduction by the panel, there will be an informative Question&Answer period for students.

If you wish to bring a friend, make certain to tell them that chairs are not part of the bargain. There are just enough chairs for students enrolled in the class. All others should be prepared to grab a comfortable (?) spot on the floor.

This panel is offered to students along with academic readings on the topic (provided by their professor on Carmen) and classroom discussion.  Special attention will be given to the Hebert & Weaver article: Perks, problems, and the people who play: A qualitative exploration of dominant and submissive BDSM roles ( http://www.utpjournals.press/doi/abs/10.3138/cjhs.2467

Barak & Sheba are pansexual, polyamorous, married partners who reside in Columbus, Ohio; with some gigantic cats. They are Contributing Authors for Sexis Online Magazine and have written numerous short stories and essays on Polyamory, Kink, and Sacred Sexuality. Traveling around the country, they present classes for Kink, Leather, and Vanilla audiences. On the first Monday of each month, you can hear them talking about all forms of creative sexual expression on BS’ing with Barak & Sheba hosted by the Erotic Awakenings Podcast network. Together they are the founding members and owners of Adventures in Sexuality(AIS), a fun, frolicking, PanPolyBSDM/Kink group in Central Ohio.

In their “Intro to Kink” presentation, they introduce the audience to the Who, What, Why, Where and How of Sensation, Roleplay, Fetish, and Bondage. You are hearing about Bondage, BDSM, Kinky Sex, and many of the taboo buzzwords thrown all over, since 50 shades came out. But what does it all mean? How do people “spice” up their relationship without going overboard? In this informational class, they discuss the general avenues that make up Kink, Alt Sex, or Creative sexuality. They offer some general guidelines, and provide a PG-13 rated “show and tell” that illustrates some key points.

Speakers: BODY MODIFICATION with Nick Wolak and Dakota (Evolved Body Art & Rendezvous Hair Salon) (March 1, 2016 @ 11:10 am)

Nick Wolak and Dakota will visit my HDFS 5440 classroom on The Ohio State University Main Campus (Townshend Hall, Room 247) Today (March 1st) from from 11:10 am  to 12:30 pm. to discuss body modification and stereotypes surrounding it.

After a brief introduction by the panel, there will be an informative Question&Answer period for students.

If you wish to bring a friend, make certain to tell them that chairs are not part of the bargain. There are just enough chairs for students enrolled in the class. All others should be prepared to grab a comfortable (?) spot on the floor.

This panel is offered to students along with a reading from Steve Lenius’ “Life, Leather, and the Pursuit of Happiness” about body modification along with a 2010 Article: Body modifications, sexual activity, and religious practices which examined correlations between body modifications (tattoos and piercings), sexual activity, and religious practices and beliefs.

nickFrom his Website:

Nick Wolak is the proud parent of two amazing children – Lennox Jahi and Ayala Itzel.  He and his wonderful partner, Jennifer have dedicated their years together to balancing the endless tasks and joys of parenthood, academia, yoga/judo, body modification, meditation and traveling.

Nick has been in the industry since 1995 at Dos Gavachos Y Un Chilango Tattoos in Acapulco, Mexico. He has traveled to more than thirty countries where he has visited studios, done guest spots, and taken part in body modification rituals & ceremonies.

Nick completed his Masters degree at the Ohio State University in Somatic and Cultural Studies in 2002. His final project, “Somatic Piercing: The Art and Ritual of Body Piercing” portrays his experiences in body rituals as well as illuminates other piercers’ views on the matter.

From her page:

Dakota-staff-photo-2015-e1445010765434-246x300.jpgDakota has been cutting, coloring, styling, and essentially being madly in love with doing hair for the past 9 years. She followed her heart to the Aveda Institute Columbus after experiencing a few years of college and has never looked back. She has proudly spent her entire career at Rendezvous…. She especially loves to utilize her skills to help you achieve looks that are gender-bending, unexpected, or simply outside the norm: QUEER! But most of all, she thrives on making each and every person that sits in her chair feel like a rockstar, whether their hair is a neon rainbow or a natural brunette.

” I do hair to make people feel good. I do it not to perpetuate the ridiculous belief that we are not good enough, but rather to aid people in self expression, individuality, and self confidence.
With each person that sits in my chair, I hope to not only make them feel GREAT, but to remind them that self love is most important; and anything they do to alter their aesthetic should be solely for their own expression, and not as a result of societal pressure and standards.”

Instructor Note: Here are just a few of the things that keep Nick creatively connected to the Columbus community (and beyond):

Speakers: ETHICAL NON-MONOGAMY with PANEL from PolyColumbus (February 25, 2016 @ 11:10 am)

polycolumbus logo 2015

Representatives from PolyColumbus will visit my HDFS 5440 classroom on The Ohio State University Main Campus (Townshend Hall, Room 247) on Tuesday, February 25 from from 11:10 am  to 12:30 pm.. PolyColumbus is a growing non-profit organization that provides a safe place for those who are purposefully non-monogamous to learn, share, and build community.

After a brief introduction by the panel, there will be an informative Question&Answer period for students.

If you are in another instructor’s 5440 or you’ve taken it with me previously… YES, you may come. But it’s standing room only… you may need to grab a square of carpet. If you wish to bring a friend? Same thing applies. Make certain to tell them that chairs aren’t part of the bargain. Note: guests should not ask questions of speakers unless “paying” students have exhausted all of their inquiries.

This IS an extra credit opportunity for students in my 2367 class.

THEIR MISSION (From their website):

PolyColumbus empowers individuals that either self-identify as polyamorous, open, or ethically non-monogamous, or are exploring such possibilities. We build community to provide a safe and inclusive place to not only be ourselves, but also meet like-minded individuals from all backgrounds.

We advocate for the equal treatment of the ethically non-monogamous under law, and for broader societal acceptance of the same. We serve organizations with similar goals by documenting best practices and creating other resources for successfully running such an organization.

Finally, we educate each other, allied organizations, and the broader community on what it means to be ethically non-monogamous.

INSTRUCTOR NOTES:

*If you – or someone you know – is interested in this group, more information is available on their website (links above throughout) or here if you would prefer to copy and paste:http://www.polycolumbus.org

*For additional information, about purposeful non-monogamy,  I recommend a visit to Looking Through.Us

The class is held on The Ohio State University Main Campus (Schoenbaum Hall, Room 200) from 11:10 am to 12:30 pm.

If you are in another instructor’s 5440 or you’ve taken it with me previously? YES, you may come.

The couples will speak about their relationships (both use the “Master” and “slave” titles and capitalization conventions in their bios below will reflect that).

During their visit, students will learn about a variety of ways in which people live power exchange relationships and have an opportunity to answer questions and receive candid responses.

If some power exchange terminology is unfamiliar, please visit the NCSF (National Coalition for Sexual Freedom) for the Glossary of BDSM they provide.

NOTE: This presentation was about consensual relationships and should not be confused with domestic violence or sexual abuse. If you need -or someone you know needs- help due to a non-consensual relationship, please contact local authorities or a reputable organization such as the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) at  1-(800) 656.HOPE

Both are considered “veterans” in the local scene (and beyond) with decades of experience between them. They will demonstrate some basics, discuss consent and negotiations, and answer students’ candid questions about their love of rope and how they explore this “kink” safely in their everyday lives.

If you are in another instructor’s 5440 or you’ve taken it with me previously? YES, you may come. It may be standing room only, however, so be prepared to grab a piece of carpet and plant yourself there!
