loaner library with over 200 titles in it for his local groups.


Barton’s Fireplay class

FIREPLAY – SOME LIKE IT HOT

The use of fire upon the body and mind is a hot and erotic part of the
BDSM scene. It can build a level of excitement and connection that
isn’t often encountered in other forms of play. This class will cover
all the basics of fireplay as well as some more advanced techniques for
the experienced players. We will discuss why we do fireplay,
equipment, techniques and how to do it safely. You will even learn how
to build your own fire wands. Also a full-blown dramatic fireplay
scene will be given to bring it all together.

(Time permitting, everyone will get a chance to build their own wand
and do a little bit of hands practice.)

Barton’s Internet class

THE POWER OF THE INTERNET

Do those know-it-all online Masters with no offline experience
represent your community? Let’s face it; most people have formed their
first serious opinion about BDSM and leather lifestyles through the
Internet. However, our community would not be what it is today without
this important tool. It is perhaps one of our most potent routes to
power, and yet is potentially the most damaging tool to the leather
community. This seminar will discuss how to minimize the
misinformation, improve vanilla opinion, educate online and offline
communities and fight back against the Internet predators. Whether we
hate or love the Internet, there is much we can do to improve the main
gateway to our community. We might even be lucky enough to meet the
Internet’s most infamous online persona face to face at the
presentation.

Barton’s Top-ography class

TOP-OGRAPHY: EXPLORING INTERNAL ISSUES

We often hear about the inner or spiritual journeys taken by
bottoms/subs/slaves (a.k.a. subspace). But what about the tops? When
engaging in BDSM activities, tops also can have intense experiences,
even spiritual ones. So why do we rarely talk about this important
aspect of ourselves?

This presentation will provide a framework for understanding and
exploring the inner-space of the Top/Dom/Master. Through discussing
this "top-ography" we come a little closer to understanding it. Tops
and switches in the audience will gain new ideas and concepts for
understanding themselves. Through this added self-awareness can come
increased personal growth and power. Bottoms are welcome to attend.
They will gain a better understanding and appreciation of what the
other side goes through.
