Tied Up, Now What?

Wednesday, July 17th — 7:30 p.m. — $25

Stella HarrisRope bondage has a huge appeal, but people often ask “what happens next?” This class by Stella Harris answers that question. We’ll cover ways to make rope the whole point of your scene, as well as ways to use rope to facilitate other kinds of play, like impact, pressure points, sensation, and yes, even sex.

Stella’s rope play has a focus on intimacy and connection, and she uses rope as a tool to facilitate those goals, rather than for its own sake. This class won’t be showing you any new knots or ties, instead it will use whatever rope skills you already have and build from there. Don’t worry if you only know the basics; even dragging rope sensually across the skin counts as rope play.

Bring some rope and a practice partner and be ready to participate in exercises — you may wish to bring a yoga mat or blanket, too.

Stella Harris is an author, educator, and coach who focuses on intimacy and connection. As a certified Intimacy Educator, she uses a variety of tools to guide and empower her clients and she teaches everything from pleasure anatomy, to communication skills, to kink and BDSM. She has presented classes for a variety of organizations including the Portland Leather Alliance, the Portland Academy of Sex Ed, Sex Positive Portland, and more, and has spoken at Portland State University, Reed College, and Pacific University. Stella is widely published in print and online, from erotic fiction to educational and lifestyle pieces on sex and kink.

Stella hopes to build a world where everyone has the tools and confidence to explore their sexuality safely and free of shame.

Koe CreationSunday, June 2nd — 7:30 pm — FREE (with option to pre-order This Heart Holds Many at 10% off)

As polyamory becomes ever more present in our society, the question blooming in people’s minds is: what about the children!? Fortunately, Koe Creation is here with an answer. This Heart Holds Many: My Life as the Nonbinary Millennial Child of a Polyamorous Family is a memoir highlighting both the logistics and agreements that contributed to one of the most positively unique childhoods you’ve ever heard of!

During this reading, Koe will share their stories of crowded parent teacher conferences, queer youth summer camp, and parental adoptions over potluck dinner that were typical of their otherwise divergent upbringing raised in a queer polyamorous family. In true polyam fashion, there will be plenty of opportunity for Q&A and you are encouraged to share your experiences in building intentional, sex-positive family!

Choose from two RSVP options:

  • RSVP only (free)
  • RSVP and purchase This Heart Holds Many at a 10% discount ($16.20), to be picked up in-store the night of the event*

Koe Creation’s award winning involvement in Sex Education, LGBTQ Activism, Public Health Advocacy and work within Polyamorous and Kink communities began taking professional shape in 2005, as a peer educator working in high schools. Koe has served the community through public speaking, media appearance, executive administration and a long standing verbal relationship with the Polyamory Weekly podcast. Their new memoir, This Heart Holds Many, is the first book written on multi-generational polyamorous families, from the child’s perspective.

Books will also be available at a special discounted price the night of the event.

* If you purchase the book option but do not attend the event, you will be responsible for picking up your book at our Mississippi location.
