Barak and Sheba (Of Adventures in Sexuality) will visit my HDFS 5440 classroom on The Ohio State University Main Campus (Townshend Hall, Room 247) Today (March 10th) from from 11:10 am  to 12:30 pm. to discuss BDSM 101 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 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. Through AIS they are Coalition members of the NCSF (National Coalition for Sexual Freedom) are active supporters of The Sexual Assault Response Network of Central Ohio (SARNCO) and the Buckeye Region Anti-Violence Organization (BRAVO). They currently promote Pansexual BDSM Educational Events 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.

Speaker: Arinda StormWeaver, Sensualist and Fetish Model (May 21, 2013 @ 9:30 am)

Arinda StormWeaver will be visiting my HDFS 5440 classroom on The Ohio State University Main Campus (Cunz Hall, Room 150) on May 21, 2013 from 9:30-10:55 am. If you are in another instructor’s 5440 or you’ve taken it with me previously? YES, you may come. Our class is large enough… guests are welcome to attend with students (adult guests only).

Arinda had been a lifestyle Mistress for about ten years when she found that she had breast cancer. At 45, after both breasts were removed, she  started taking pictures of her hands and fingernails. A very simple question changed her life.  “Did you know there is a fetish for long fingernails?”

Arinda’s work involves several fetish arenas, including long fingernails, long toenails, long hair, smoking and foot fetishism. Her work as a sensualist has taken her overseas and she was featured in the art book Claws for Alarm by Tolu Solanke. Arinda StormWeaver maintains a no-nudity policy on her part and she discovered that the nail fetish community made it very easy for her to become well-known without taking her clothes off.
