About the presentation:
By employing controlled breathing and other techniques we can safely mimic the euphoric and enhancing effects of erotic asphyxiation with none of the risks of this more extreme practice. Both neophytes as well as those well versed in breath play/asphyxiation can find useful information. This presentation highlights and demonstrates various ways to manipulate the human breath with a focused eye on safety, reality, and science. See the rest of this entry…

About the class
This demonstration intends to cover some of the basics of self-bondage and self-suspensions, as well as address its unique intrigue, motivation and dangers. Self-bondage, as much fun as it is, is also one of the most dangerous practices in BDSM. SapphiresBlues hopes to give tips and tricks for staying safe while still having fun with tying. Anyone interested in self-bondage and self-suspension is welcome to join us. People are also welcome to tie along, if they wish.
Sapphire, though she is still relatively new to the kink scene, took to Japanese Rope Bondage like a fish to water. She has had the great fortune of studying with and bottoming for some incredibly accomplished riggers across the globe, as well as frequently attending conferences across the nation. Consequently, when she first found herself without a rigger nearby, she decided to simply tie herself up, and discovered that that was a good deal of fun too. So it wasn’t long until relentless nagging from her friends lead to her tie others, and to her surprise, she quite enjoyed that as well. According to her friends, she’s not half bad at it either.
About the presentor
Sapphire is the founder of Hitchin’ Bitches NYC. She hosts the monthly “Rope Time with Sapphire” and is a proud member of NYCAIR (NYC Allies in Rope) and BADASS (Baltimore & DC Suspension Squad).

Do you know the “Fire of The Dragon”? Adam And Gillian’s Sensual Whips & Toys heard about Dragon Canes as being something unusual … special but rare. After searching for years, they have imported a limited quantity of this unique rattan. In this class, they will explore its lore, its alluring qualities, and its comparison to regular canes.
Bottoms say this rattan delivers an extra wicked sizzle when it makes contact. The Dragon Cane’s nasty streak makes it particularly delicious for masochistic cane lovers and evil tops.
For those who want to try to “train the Dragon”—or their partners—there will be canes on hand … and a supportive audience.
About the presenters
Since the ’80′s Adam & Gillian have been making and marketing hand-crafted “implements of affection” and all manner of toyture devices in their Copiague workshop. Back in the day, they pioneered the discussion of sexual interests and alternative lifestyles on the information superhighway as operators of The Utopian Network’s computer bulletin boards. As themselves, (Mitch Kessler and Gerrie Blum) they published The SandMUtopian Guardian, a factual, practical periodical of BDSM information. Want to know more? It’s at: www.aswgt.com/biography.html

Do you identify as an “S type” … a submissive or slave, or anyone interested in being the more submissive half of a power-exchange relationship?
The 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…
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…
Finding your pleasure zones
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…

Attention artists and designers:
LILNR is holding a contest for a new logo.
Prize: Free membership for a year.
We’ve been using our “island” logo (above) for a while and the coordinators agree it’s time for a fresh look. The new logo will be used on our soon-to-be-redesigned website, membership cards, and elsewhere. It should be recognizable even at a small size.
Please use “Long Island Leather N Roses” or “LILNR” as part or all of the design.
Top ten entries will be selected by the coordinators, and then LILNR members will pick the winner. (You don’t have to be a current member to submit an entry). The winning logo will be featured on our website along with the top runners-up.
