Check out SWITCH, the newest monthly BDSM party, set to take place at Paddles. Gina, the organizer, has also asked us to pass on the following message:
“In case anyone is feeling particularly enthusiastic, I’m looking for volunteers for the door! It’s not the door of paddles, and not taking money or anything, but just being in front of the closed doors of the party to let people know it’s going on and that it’s a women/trans/genderqueer party (there will be signs for the door and everything and i’ve been telling people to team up to make it more fun!)”
The party information follows from the promotional material:

Since it would quite an ordeal to schedule a Fireplay demo or workshop on campus, I am pleased to announce that Barbara Carrellas will be holding just such a class at LSM this month.
Where: The LGBT Center at 203 West 13th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues
Cost: $5 for members, $10 for non-members
For more information about LSM attendance policy, please be sure to visit their website.
Imagine the relaxation of a sensual massage combined with the thrill of fireplay. In this workshop, you will learn how the sensuous use of fire can transform a sensual massage into a trance-inducing journey into bliss. Barbara will demonstrate four secrets of exquisite touch as well as the basic techniques of fireplay. She will then demonstrate how her unique combination of fire, conscious breath and sensual massage can create a dramatic, profound and intensely pleasurable sexual and sacred experience. Technique, safety, and sensual/art/erotic applications will be covered. Even if you might think that fireplay is not your thing, you may be surprised by the sensual beauty and artistry of the dance of the flame.Barbara Carrellas is the author of Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex for the Twenty First Century and Luxurious Loving: Tantric Inspirations for Passion and Pleasure. She is the founder of Urban TantraÂ®, an approach to sacred sexuality that adapts and blends conscious sexuality practices from Tantra to S/M, and the co-founder of Erotic Awakening, a pioneering series of workshops focusing on the physical, spiritual and healing powers of sex.
