Lesbian Sex Mafia presents How to Play with Needles with Lolita Wolf [Mar. 7th, 2013|02:19 pm]
Lesbian Sex Mafia
viviane212

When thinking of needles, most people remember of going to the doctor and getting shots. Ick! The last thing that they want to do is play with needles. But once one gets over that fear, playing with needles can be a lot of fun. Play piercing can give you a big endorphin rush. Endorphins are those sensations that your body makes to give you a natural high. Long distance runners experience a runner’s high that is very similar. Needles can leave you a different sort of breathless.

When:    Friday, March 15, 2013; 8:00-10:00PM

Lesbian Sex Mafia presents International Ms. Bootblack KD on “Giving Good Chair” [Mar. 14th, 2012|10:57 pm]
Lesbian Sex Mafia
viviane212
International Ms. Bootblack K.D.

You’ve attended a “Bootblacking 101” class, or two. You’ve sat down with your Daddy and learned the basics of a spit shine. You’ve interrogated your bootblack friends about what Huberd’s really is. Or maybe you haven’t done any of these things. Regardless of what you know about the process of bootblacking itself–the technicalities, if you will–this workshop won’t cover any of those things. This workshop will cover the nature of “giving good chair” in three parts: 1. The Basics, 2. Upping the Ante, 3. Fucking Without Sex. Start off by learning how to be  attentive and a great conversationalist; move on to engage in sensual physical contact; and leave them wanting more with boot worship.

Where: The LGBT Center, 208 West 13th St. (7th/8th Ave), NYC
When: Friday, March 16 , 2012; 8:00-10:00PM
Cost: LSM Members: $5/Non Members: $10

About K.D.

kd, International Ms Bootblack 2011, is equal parts bootblack to artist. The very nature of leathercare, leather worship, and leather community are all similar and connected to the core of being an artist. kd uses her art as a platform for conversation and education, and similarly uses her bootblacking as a means to support her community, open up dialogues about leather, and get her hands good and dirty. kd is also the creator of SALACIOUS, a queer feminist anti-racist sex magazine, looks to meld high art, stunning visuals, and written erotica. www.salaciousmagazine.com.

Lesbian Sex Mafia
viviane212

Leather Storytelling is about taking ownership of why we find solace, and pleasure in the things that we do, and coming out of the shadows to make our voices heard. This workshop is designed for all variety of folks who find leather to be a driving force in their lives regardless of context or dynamic(s). The workshop is not specifically about writing porn/erotica though of course sexually explicit themes are welcome, but rather this is focused on telling the stories of our dynamics, of our communities, and of ourselves. Leather Storytelling is focused on exploring what it means to tell our stories when as leather folk we are often silenced, and pushed out of even the most progressive spaces who deem us as inappropriate or obscene. Through guided writing exercises, workshop participants will discover the transformative power of storytelling and how it can be used to break down divides, foster and preserve community, and build coalitions within leather community and beyond.

Let's celebrate the holidays with a kinky grab bag ($5/max per item) and some light refreshments!

LSM Presents: Surviving Corporal 101 with Boymeat [Nov. 5th, 2010|04:17 pm]
Lesbian Sex Mafia
viviane212

Meeting open to all genders

Presented by Lesbian Sex Mafia

How to Handle the Physical and Emotional Effects: Pain is a very complicated thing, and creates a myriad of responses in the body. There is the physical side (Ow, fuck! Jeez, how can he take that!) Then there are the emotional effects; the multitude of emotions and thoughts that go through one’s head through pain. Processing pain, while so simply stated in this world, is actually quite difficult at times. In this class we will talk about how to handle the pain both inside and out. We will explore why we endure it, where it takes us and what we can get out of it.

Date:  Fri, November 19, 8pm – 10pm (In the spirit of community, it is an LSM tradition to open up our November meeting to all genders.)
Location: The LGBT Center, 208 W 13th St, NY
Cost:  LSM member: $5;  Non-members $10 

About Boymeat

Boymeat, is a 31-year-old native New Yorker.

Discovering The Eulenspiegel Society (TES) at the age of 19, he quickly became an active participant and presenter in the New York SM scene. A former TES board member, he also holds memberships with the Gay Male SM Activists (GMSMA), the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF) and the Leather Archives & Museum. He is also an associate member of the New York boys of Leather and active with New York’s Leather Pride Night Committee.

Best known for his outreach to the younger members of our community, he co-created the concept of The Next Generation (TNG), specialized groups serving young adults between the ages of 18 and 35 who are interested in SM. Boymeat was the co-founder of both TES-TNG and GMSMA-TNG, groups that helped kick off the national TNG movement. He also helped organize the first 3 national TNG conferences – Chickenstock in 1999, Second Coming in 2002, and TNG3: BDSM in the Big City in 2003. He has presented on TNG and other issues at multiple Leather Leadership Conferences.

Known as a SM educator, he has taught at almost every major educational event in the United States. He has taught SM, role play, fetishes, and relationships at TES Fest, Black Rose, South Plains Leather Fest, Dungeon 701-901, Portland Kinkfest, and many others. He has also been asked to teach to students at New York University and Columbia University. Finally, he presented keynote speeches at SM Odyssey’s Folsom Fringe 2007, Rio Grande Leather 2007, and TNG4: Bound for the Bay in 2008.

Boymeat is honored to have experience on the title circuit as a judge both at Ms. World Leather 2006 and South East Leatherfest 2007. In addition, he appreciates the chutzpah it takes to run for a title, having run for Gotham Leatherman 2000. His latest and greatest honor has been being asked to serve as Tallymaster at International Mr. Leather 2008.

A bisexual, polyamourous switch, with a penchant for foot fetishism, incest role play and piss play, Boymeat is rumored to be the quite the sadist. An aspirational handcuff collector and leather history slut, he is the man who nerve.com said “makes the Marquis de Sade look like Pat Boone.”

LSM presents: A Servant's Toolkit - Guide to being prepared with Laine [Oct. 8th, 2010|02:28 pm]
Lesbian Sex Mafia
viviane212

Just as with the Boy Scouts, one of the many mottoes a servant should have is “be prepared”. In this class, we discuss the principles of preparedness, working off of the Dominant’s expectations, tools in research and preparedness and example methods of preparedness for day to day, cars, special events and travel. Handouts of sample checklists and planning methods will be provided, but the focus is on building a mindset and skills to allow one to prepare for situations that may come up in service.


About Laine
Laine has been involved in the D/s and M/s community since 1996 when she began exploring submission and surrender. Since then, she has had the privilege of serving as a submissive, servant and service slave in contracts ranging from short term to multi-year. Currently in a year of personal reflection and growth, Laine has left San Francisco and travels extensively. She keeps her home base in New York City, close to her Leather Family: Sovereign House, where she functions as Family Majordomo. Laine’s love of service is an expression of her spirit, heart and soul. While expressing this, she has had the chance to train in and focus on the roles of domestic servant, chauffeur, cook, companion, ladies maid, butler and majordomo. Laine also has a great love of etiquette, service hierarchies, formal protocols, cigars, wine, and food. Power fluid, and gender fluid, Laine also enjoys being a Daddy to special little girls, and is enjoying her dominant side as well as the occasional, shockingly vanilla romantic date. Self-mastery, presence, spiritual leather and living with integrity are her aspirations and touchstones.


Where:  LGBT Center, 208 West 13th St. (7th/8th Ave)
When:  Friday, October 15, 2010; 8:00-10:00PM

What happens when kink becomes commodified?


This presentation explores how contemporary popular culture portrays BDSM (for better or for worse) and what happens when kink comes out of the dungeon and on to prime time. From “Wonder Woman” to “Family Guy”, kink has been a part of our cultural vocabulary for decades. We’ll take a look at and talk about how kink has effected the media and how the media effects us.

About Leila

Leila is a graphic designer who has worked in corporate branding for the past 15 years, but has been a pervert for far longer than that. Her blog Kink+Culture is devoted to the exploration of BDSM in art, design, and popular culture. She has presented at Kink For All NYC and has been active in the New York BDSM scene for about 3 years. When she’s not making the world a more beautiful place one logo at a time, she gets hit with stuff for fun.
