CV Presents: Fucking Around with Rope with NerdcoreBecca

This open-to-all-skill-levels class will be crowd-driven, focusing on topics that attendees express interest in. Possible topics include connective rope, basic technical skills (column ties, basic chest harnesses, and restrictive ties such as frog ties and futomomos), rope for all bodies (tying outside the binary), better bottoming tips (and rope switching in general), and anything else you come up with in the realm of floorwork. Bring rope if you have it, bring a partner if you have one. If you’ve got neither, don’t sweat it, we’ll find you both at the class :)

Nerdcorebecca has been tying and being tied for about a year and a half and doesn’t plan on slowing down anytime soon!

As always, this class is free, and will be held in Kent room 411.

CV Presents: Geeking Out About Consent! with Yandy

Conversio Virium is very excited to welcome Yandy back as a presenter this week!

Class description:

Are you new to the kink scene? Do you want to communicate about sex and play in ways that are respectful, consensual, and not creepy? Or do you just want to make your personal consent practice more conscious? In this community, we have the opportunity to create moments of great vulnerability, open up our minds and our boundaries, and gain incredible intimacy with others. But it can be challenging to balance that intimacy with the need to ensure that all contact is welcome! This workshop will use the Geek Social Fallacies as a jumping-off point to teach both theory and practical strategies on practicing good consent in both sexual and social situations. Class involves an optional touch exercise that is physical but not sexual.

**This class covers different material than the Beyond No Means No & Yes Means Yes class that will be happening at TES TNG.**

CV Presents: Sadistic Massage with Stella

Free, as always, and open to all.
CVFlyer

Conversio Virium is GREATLY PLEASED to welcome back Stella to teach Sadistic Massage! Here is her description of the class:

“Sadistic Massage is, in short, an amazingly versatile, tactile, and sensual kind of BDSM play that can range from the mildly intense to the sweepingly sadistic. With a little practice: you can turn your hands into pain dispensers, learn how to scout for pressure points and knotted muscle, learn how to remove those knots with force causing remarkable sensations, and play those pressure points in a range of grips, and provide one of the most magnificent head-spaces this educator has experienced–being made to feel like meat-putty. We will also cover how to build your own massage kit.

Please join us! I’m personally delighted to be teaching at CV again. Please do expect to practice in the class, we did last time and it was a bunch of fun!”

CV Presents: Canes!

Our presenter, SirLadyBear (https://fetlife.com/users/742108) is going to teach us about how fun canes can be. Here’s what she has to say about it!

“There is nothing I love more than a good caning; giving or reviving! Caning can be a painful pleasure, a sensual and calming kick starter or a complete ordeal.

In this class I plan on covering the many types of canes that are out there. How to select the cane that you will enjoy playing with and how to take care of them. I’ll also cover how to use a cane to the best of its ability, via location, technique and helpful tips.”

CV Presents: Psychology of Service Submissives with undergroundsea

Undergroundsea is coming all the way from Texas to teach at Conversio Virium!

We will be in Kent 411, as usual. If you are unfamiliar with Columbia’s campus, here is a map:

http://www1.cs.columbia.edu/~sigm2004/images/columbia.jpg

Understanding Psychology of Service Submissives

Are you a dominant who is uncomfortable to receive service, or cannot fathom why someone would want to clean your house? Are you a dominant who took on a service submissive and (i) would like to understand what fulfills the submissive, and (ii) and how to have the service relationship last? Are you a service submissive who has felt unfulfilled and had difficulty conveying what is important to you in service relationships?

In this interactive seminar, we will discuss the challenges faced by dominants and submissives with respect to service. We will then discuss archetypes of service submissives, why each archetype likes to provide service, and how to identify these archetypes. We will then talk about how identifying these archetypes helps determine compatibility, and what can enhance or deflate motivation to serve for the different archetypes.

Helpful to:

Dominants who wish to understand service submissives and what motivates them.
Service submissives who wish to better understand self, and learn how to communicate needs to a dominant.

CV Presents: Geek and Kink with Jeff

Monday October 21st, 9pm, Kent 411

Jeff Mach will be presenting on Coming Out of the Geek Closet!
In his own words:

“It’s often hard telling a partner or lover – or a potential – that you’re kinky, and introducing them to some of your interests…it can be hard even if you’ve met someone in a kink context.

It can be really hard to discuss your interest in dressing up as Harry Potter, or in using that TENS unit for a series of scientific experiments, or your urge to jump naked into ballpits.

In this talk and workshop, we’ll be tackling some ways of exploring the intersection of geek and kink, as well as how to speak to partners about it and, if possible, how to have a richer life as both a geek and a kinkster.”

Puppy Play and How To Be So Adorable Nobody Will Be Able To Resist Giving You Treats

CV Rope Class with Erin Houdini 9/16/13

Here is the fetlife event: https://fetlife.com/events/198384

IN  411 KENT HALL

About the class:

Western bondage is all about putting restraint and restriction first, regardless of gender, size, or flexibility. Erin introduces the basics of tying limbs, chest harnesses, and hogties, giving students a solid rope foundation to build on, no matter who you’re tying up. Bringing a partner is recommended, though the first few ties can be done solo and you’ll have a chance to pair up. No experience is required, and you’re welcome to borrow Erin’s rope.

There may be a lot of people at this meeting, so if you have your own rope, please bring it!

Here is a map of Columbia’s campus. We will be in KENT, room 411 :http://www1.cs.columbia.edu/~sigm2004/images/columb…

 

First meeting of the semester!

Hello! This is CV’s first meeting of the semester. (We also have a group on FetLife where we post events.)

This is going to be a pretty informal meeting. It’s just an intro and a meet and greet and a welcome session. We want to hear about all the cool shit everyone did over the summer and get back into the swing of things. REJOICE! Mondays are awesome again!

So we are meeting outdoors this time. We will meet in the courtyard directly outside Kent Hall (where we met last semester).

Here is a map of the campus:
http://www.columbia.edu/home/about_columbia/map/ima…

When you enter the campus from the 1 stop, walk all the way across to the green patch that sits in the corner of Kent and Philosophy. If you see a statue of a thinking man, you are in the right place. You may also be able to identify us as the large group of weirdos sitting in a circle.

Can’t wait to see you there!

 

MissL on “Unleashing your Inner Dom(me)”

Appropriate for all genders and kink identities, MissL and A1ex will talk about how to get in touch with your inner sadist, top or dom/me, and what a good dom/me can do for their sub. Bonus demo scene with the help of CV’s Holli-Quinn about the virtues of co-topping.
