The Joys of Toys
Ever wandered around a sex toy shop and wondered “what the heck is that?” Never fear – Daddy Rod is here to answer your burning questions, and then some! In this class, Daddy Rod will explain the different types of toys, what they are used for and what they are made from, including vibrators, dildos, kegel exercisers, anal toys, BDSM toys and more. Of course, don’t forget one of the most important things of all… yes, that would be lube!


Daddy Rod will go over the different types of lube, as well as the ingredients to be aware of when selecting the best product for you. He will also address how to clean and store your toys so that you can enjoy them for as long as possible.

“Smack that Ass” – The Joys of Spanking/Paddling

Our parents and grandparents may have given you a spanking and paddling when you were acting like a bad ass. Chances are if you got a paddling while growing up, possibly thru a fraternity or sorority, you got it across the backside as well. Join me for an informative and fun interactive workshop where I will discuss and then demonstrate impact play via a hand, a belt, or even a paddle! Any one of these items can be used to bring a pleasurable, even intense, form of Kink Play…if you know how. I will cover topics including pre- and after-care; different toys to use; and how to take your “play pal” on a ride of their lives. (Time permitting, a few lucky audience members may even get to experience the process!)    

   

Beyond Monogamy***
A growing number of people are exploring alternatives to monogamy, through swinging, polyamory, and other types of open relationships. Whether you are curious about opening up, facing obstacles with polyamory, or you are a provider who wants to better understand your clients, Daddy Rod will help walk you through the challenges and benefits of ethical non-monogamy.

He will discuss different styles of open relationships, talk about how to deal with common issues such as jealousy, resentment, time management, miscommunication, and New Relationship Energy (NRE), and will offer tips on dating/meeting new people, navigating different relationship structures and hierarchies, and coming out as polyamorous.

In this interactive workshop, Daddy Rod will guide participants through exercises that help them negotiate agreements/boundaries, design their own ideal open relationships, and practice nonviolent communication for deeper, more fulfilling connections. There will also be the option to hear about real-life triumphs and tribulations of other non-mono people in addition to learning how to find and build community.

Building Intimacy and Connection Through Kink!
Have you been curious about kink and wanted to hear more about it? Perhaps you already use some kink and BDSM practices in your life to play and want to explore different dynamics in your relationships. Or perhaps you’ve encountered some kink and haven’t had a clear sense of how it can be positive, empowering and intimate.

Many people equate intimacy with sex, but they are two very different things. Intimacy has a quality of connection that may or may not include sex. In Daddy Rod’s experience, kink is one of the most effective ways to build intimacy. In this workshop, we will be learning ways to use kink to build connection, intimacy and depth.

Most of the workshop will be demonstrations and discussion. There may be opportunities to practice a bit, but participating in the practicing is not required.

This workshop assumes no previous kink/BDSM experience and is fully appropriate for all genders, all orientations, and for both tops and bottoms.

Swinging & Threesomes & Orgies, Oh My!

Do you and your partner want to try swinging or having a threesome together but are worried about how it may affect your relationship? Well, start learning how to make your fantasies a smart and safe reality with this workshop!


Daddy Rod will talk about the differences between swinging, orgies, and threesomes (and their unique benefits and considerations), give pointers on how to pick play partners wisely, and will cover important group sex etiquette. He will lead participants through exercises in communication and negotiating boundaries and ground rules, and he’ll also discuss jealousy and other emotions that may arise.
