BDSM relationships: what to do when they end

Posted by lilnr on July 23, 2014

Caspar_Netscher_-_Young_Girl_Holding_a_Letter_(detail)_-_WGA16521The good, the bad and the ugly about breaking up with a scene partner

Most of us have gone through breakups, in and out of the scene, and they are never easy, even for the partner who initiated the breakup. Sometimes there’s no way of avoiding pain or avoiding hurting someone else. But there are ways to try to make things easier, Eric Pride told Long Island Leather N Roses on Tuesday, July 22.

Think of it more as a “transformation”

For many people the word “breakup” means destruction or hatred, while using the term “transformation” can lead to civility and respect, Eric said. Also, people sometimes think a breakup means they’ve failed. Eric suggested instead to cherish the experiences you’ve had together and don’t consider it wasted time. See the rest of this entry…

Past event: July 22: Eric Pride on Managing Scene Breakups

Posted by lilnr on July 17, 2014

Managing Breakups in the Scene:

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

When: Tuesday, July 22, 2014, 8-10:30 pm, Toney Roses, 65 E Jefryn Blvd Deer Park, NY 11729   @ map

About the discussion:

An inevitable reality about relationships is that they may not last forever. The same of course is true for relationships in the scene. Breakups are taxing, stressful and very emotional.

In this presentation we talk about why lifestyle relationships sometimes come to an end, how to handle the breakup process, and how to get back on our feet again. Questions we will address include: How are lifestyle and vanilla breakups different? What are “fair breakups”? How do we handle our own and previous partner’s feelings and emotions? How do we deal with family, friends and other people who are affected by the breakup? How do we get back out there? See the rest of this entry…

The pleasure of Tantric erogenous zones

Posted by lilnr on July 17, 2014

Finding your pleasure zones

Michaels and Johnson pictureCan touching the tip of your partner’s nose, or stroking her little finger, turn her on?

Perhaps—these are two of the “tertiary” erogenous zones that lovers wishing to have a more intense experience might consider exploring.

Teachers Michaels & Johnson talked about using erogenous zones during their hands-on class at the July 8 LILNR meeting.

Offering a demonstration on each other as they explained each zone, the couple encouraged audience members to pair up and try tantric touch on each other. See the rest of this entry…

Tantric Erogenous Zones with Michaels and Johnson

Finding your pleasure zones

In Tantric sexual practice, it is important to prolong the excitement phase. The Tantric and Ayurvedic traditions have long recognized specific zones of the body that are particularly responsive to stimulation, and some schools of Tantra (particularly in South India) have developed a systematic approach to the stimulation of these zones in order to produce high states of arousal. This system was introduced to the West by Dr. Jonn Mumford in 1976 and is still little known. In this workshop, we will introduce you to to these zones and the basic principles for working with them systematically. See the rest of this entry…
