It was a fantastic night at the 1763 Education Stations on August 5, 2017.  Read about what you may have missed, and what you can expect in February 2018!

______________________________________________


It happens only once every 6 months.  The 1763 Education Stations returns on Saturday, August 5, 2017.  Featuring a multitude of knowledgeable presenters, this is the perfect night to see, learn about, and experience a wide range of activities.

Most of these great presenters are returning from having presented at The 1763 Education Stations in February, 2017.  Why?  Because these are simply some of the most knowledgeable and outgoing presenters that you will find in the Southeast!




 

The 1763 Education Stations is an event that allows you to come in for the evening and experience a variety of "hands on" activities. Presenters will be stationed throughout the dungeon areas, offering instruction on safety, technique, tidbits of interest and the ability to ask questions. There are no lectures or classes per se, as you have the freedom to either watch, ask questions or experience a bit of the activity yourself, and then move from station to station at your own pace.

Who attends The 1763 Education Stations events?...everyone new and old who has an interest in learning about, or increasing their knowledge of, the topics being presented. Singles, couples, new folks, Doms, Dominas, Tops, bottoms, submissives, crossdressers, even those who have been around for a number of years, all participate and enjoy the 1763 Education Stations events!

Why attend The 1763 Education Stations? Where better to learn about the BDSM/Fetish lifestyle than in the Southeast's most elegant public dungeon, celebrating 12 years in Atlanta? The presenters at our educational events are practiced, knowledgeable, safe lifestyle players and educators. You may have seen many of these presenters at various 1763 nights in the past; here is your opportunity to work one-on-one with them.

IN THE MAIN DUNGEON

 

 
"Flogging" - Wolf 



The art of Flogging dates back millennia, and techniques can range from soft and sensual to hard and intense.  Many have experienced a "stress relief" feeling from being flogged, and the various types of materials used in the construction of a flogger can induce a wide range of sensations.  

Wolf has been in the lifestyle for 25 years, a member of the local Atlanta community for 15 years and can frequently be found serving as a Dungeon Monitor at 1763. In addition to Flogging, Wolf also has interests in Sensation Play, Fire Play and Electricity.  He has presented at The Stations several times in the past, as well as numerous instructional demos on various topics over the years.  Wolf will have his large collection of Floggers on display at The Stations!

"Dragon Tails" - Lady Beth



A Dragon Tail can almost be described as a cross between a single tail and a flogger, consisting of a handle, often made of wood and wrapped with leather, to which a wide triangular piece of thin leather or suede is attached. This leather or suede forms a lash which is a hollow tube tapering to a point at the striking end. It can kiss and caress, yet snap and sting when used in skilled hands.

Lady Beth got her introduction into the BDSM lifestyle in 1980. After several unsatisfying vanilla relationships, she re-discovered the lifestyle in 2005, finding her way to 1763 and her lifestyle partner, Sir James. Through his loving guidance, Lady Beth went from being his devoted slave to growing into the Sadistic Dominant she is today. Those who know her have seen the gleam she gets in her eyes as she discusses her passion for the Dragon Tails. She has studied and practiced her techniques with a wide variety of Dragon Tails, from the short traditional to the 4' twins she had specially made to her specifications and many variations in between. She teaches that there are many ways to use them, from single to dual wielding and from sensual to sadistic!

"The Art and Joy of Canes" - Mr. Luis




The word "canes" often strikes fear in many.  However, the art of caning has many permutations.  In skilled hands, it can range from playful and sensual to intense and painful.

Mr. Luis has been in the lifestyle since the early 70’s, a Dungeon Monitor at 1763, and has been the host of the North Georgia Munch in Dalton, GA for almost 10 years. You may have seen him present Fire Play at 1763 many times over the years.  This evening, however, he will be presenting one of his greatest passions, Canes.  He will have various types of canes on hand to show you the difference in materials and sensations, show you how to properly swing a cane for maximum control, and for those willing, the various sensations each type of cane can impart.

"Creative Bondage" - Master Dan



There are many items, that with a creative thought process, can be used in BDSM play. From ropes, scarves and saran warp to cages, leather restraints and straightjackets, it isn't necessarily what one uses, but how it is used!

Master Dan, who hosts the Atlanta Dominion all-male play parties at 1763, has been a part of the Leather, Latex, and BDSM communities for many years. He has extensive experience using a wide variety of techniques and tools to explore a boy's, sub's, or slave's needs.

Master Dan does not believe that BDSM is a competition; it is about finding the levels that stoke your passions, fulfill your dreams, and make you walk two feet off the ground for days. His major passion has always been bondage in its many forms, from mummification to hogties, from predicament bondage to total immobilization, from straitjackets to saran wrap, from rope to steel, and well beyond all of these. Always creative, he is an equal opportunist with both men and women. Learn some basic techniques that can be incorporated in your style of play!

"Sensual Chills of Hot Wax" - Tenderdom (aka TD)



Hot wax is a very unique way to play. You can give and experience pure sensuality. It can be a delightful tease, a frightening torture, or an artistic endeavor. Only your imagination and a few observed safety precautions can be your path to a realm of unique pleasures.


TD will provide great tips on how to get started (protect that carpet), as well as candle safety and the different types of candles that can safely be used. Waxing with pillar candles, jar candles, votives, using crock pots and other instruments, will all be discussed. TD will show how easy it is for one to use their imagination to create a unique wax design. The removal process can be just as sensuous as the application, so expect some devilish ideas in this regard. And cleanup? Expect some tips and precautions, especially if using a shower!


TD’s passion for wax was ignited almost 20 years ago upon viewing his first wax scene. His expansive knowledge of wax comes from many years of hands on experience and play. He is the host of the Gwinnett Munch, celebrating 15 years in existence! TD also makes and sells his own unique line of low temperature candles suitable for waxing.

“Impact Play & Spanking” - Strict Dave




Leather paddles, wood paddles, leather belts and straps, metallic paddles, acrylics, plastics, and of course bare hands, are all instruments that one can use and experience with Impact Play and Spanking.  Learn about the different materials and shapes that impart so many unique sensations, from mild to intense.  Perhaps experience these sensations first hand!  

Strict Dave is a strict but playful dominant top, sadistic when the occasion warrants, who loves to play. His interests run the gamut from bullwhips to spanking, but ultimately he is all about energy and dynamics. Strict Dave loves to connect with his play partners, get into their heads, and go together with them to wonderful places, and loves the challenge of playing with new people. He enjoy experiences from mild to wild; particularly enjoying intensity and pushing people, willingly and happily, to new heights.

Strict Dave has been active in the lifestyle for about 27 years. His exposure to the broader community came first in NYC, then in Atlanta and briefly in San Francisco. Having been active with a large number of kinky organizations, both general BDSM groups and spanking fetish groups, he has hosted quite a few demos and classes for a number of different groups from Atlanta to Hawaii, primarily on impact play, whips, spanking, and energy/dynamics/communication.

"The Warmth of Fire Play" - Darth Table



Fireplay is a form of "edge play" that involves using various types of fuel to apply a flame close to, or on to, the skin. In skilled hands, it can create a state of bliss and meditation; in the wrong hands it holds the possibility of bodily injury and property damage.

Darth will focus on the safety aspects of Fire Play, including the types of materials to use and the type of fuel to use (and not to use). After all, it is the fuel that will be burning, not skin! Equally important, he will show you what safety equipment and first aid items need to be on hand, pre-scene precautions, etc. Darth will demonstrate various techniques for the top, or on the bottom, that will help get the bottom into that “blissful meditative state”.


"If you are planning to do any type of fire play, don't put on lotions, perfumes, body sprays, glitter, make-up and other things that might contain oils, melt, or ignite on the parts of the body you plan to use in your fire play."

"Aftercare" -  Fortunes Pixi
  


Aftercare is one of the most important aspects to BDSM dungeon play and often gets overlooked by beginners. Aftercare includes the very obvious things like taking care of an actual injury, but it goes much deeper than that. One must delve deep into the psyche of their play partner to ensure that they leave the scene not just physically healthy, but also mentally, emotionally, and spiritually whole. Aftercare should be negotiated as part of a scene set up and varies drastically from person to person. During this station we will go over the most common types of first aid needed during play and the supplies most commonly needed in an aftercare bag. We will discuss emotional aftercare for both Doms (and all others on that side of the slash) and subs (and all on those on that side of the slash). We can explore specific types of play and situations and the aftercare that could be needed for anyone who has questions.  Bring your questions!

Pixi has been living in a DDlg power exchange relationship/marriage for 16 years. She came out to the community after discovering that there was a whole community of like minded people almost 2 years ago. Since that time she has been active in the community and expanding her knowledge in all aspects of alternative lifestyles and BDSM. She was completely open in the vanilla world. She graduated nursing school in 2009 and values aftercare as this lifestyle has very many risky aspects to it. She can been found in the community at various events and munches almost weekly, with her Daddy always close by, watching and protecting her.

IN THE RETRO ROOM

 
"Electrical Play" - TheShadowDRagon



The lights will be low and the sparks may fly as electricity is safely explored in the Retro  Room.  From violet wands to more, experience the various sensations and intensities that safe electrical play can impart.

TheShadowDragon, a local Dominant who has been in the Atlanta community for almost 20 years, has presented at The Education Stations in the past. This evening his attention turns once again to his fondness for The Electric Chair, violet wands and a variety of unique "accessories", all of which stem from both his kinky nature and his inner geek. A favorite hobby of his is finding or creating new items to use. Step on in and have a seat in "The Chair" and sample a variety of sensations and learn some new techniques!

IN THE PURPLE SUSPENSION ROOM


"Erotic Knife Play" - Andrew




What do knives, wartenberg wheels, banjo picks and other “sharp and pointy” objects have in common?  They can all be used to impart intense sensual and erotic sensations upon sensitive areas of one’s anatomy.  

Former Whippersnappers board member Andrew will be bringing in an assortment of knives and other items from his personal collection. Feel the sensation of different types and sizes of knife blades on various parts of your anatomy. No cutting, no blood...just pure sensation play as Andrew explores the nerves of your body and the imagination of your mind with these sharp and pointy objects. Amongst the soft candle lit shadows, he will get on your nerves…literally.

IN THE BLACK DUNGEON


“Switching - Crystal Ice & PaladinHeart


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to both Top and bottom all in the same scene? Well here's your night to come out and work with an amazing group of switches that do just that. Helping you on your journey to be a Top who Bottoms or a Bottom who Tops! Come meet your 2017 President Ms_Ice_Crystals & Vice President SKIP (PaladinHeart) of the ATL chapter of SASS (Seasoned All-in Switches & Supporters).  We will start with Mini switch scene between the President & Vice President. Then the opportunity for volunteers and some regular participants to begin the trust exercises (pen/hand/blindfold) & switch negotiations. Then during open play participants can do the scene they've negotiated.

SASS Is a community service project sponsored by the House of Trei. This Group is our effort To serve our local LEATHER & BDSM community by sharing our love & passion for switching, topping & bottoming In same scene, service topping & bottoming as a practiced & honored skill set without judgement & giving/receiving BDSM activity without an automatic change in your chosen dynamic or core role. We seek to help remove some of the stigma & shame we see Switches receive online & in real-time. Our goal is very similar to other previously oppressed sub-culture within and without the Leather/BDSM/Mainstream communities: equality.

Switch Definition: For the purpose of this group, a Switch is defined simply & strictly as an individual who can & enjoys recurring Top and bottom activities during play.

CRYSTAL ICE is the 2017 President of SASS Atlanta. Her role is to be the face of SASS Atlanta and establish consistent meet ups and demos in the Atlanta. She also provides support to her counterparts in SASS DC. Crystal is an active participant in many groups in the Atlanta and Indianapolis communities for almost 5 years. Her mission is to expand switch education, help new switches explore topping and bottoming in or out of dynamic and be a supporter of the kinky POC (People of Color) community. She believes in bringing the kinky out in everyone!

SKIP (PaladinHeart) is the 2017 Vice President of SASS Atlanta. He assists with outreach to the various North Atlanta Metro groups. He identifies as a heteroflexible cis male switch and although he has a strong submissive side, with the right person he can be dominant. For play he loves going both ways and enjoys giving and receiving. He has been kinky since his early teens. He has been happily married for 25 years, both are actively kinky, and have been in a poly family for the last few years with each in a serious relationship with another.

From soft caresses to playful stings, Sir Morgan will show you how a single tail can be used in all levels and intensities of play. He is a leather dominant that has been active in the lifestyle for over 25 years. He is a Dungeon Monitor at 1763 and has a passion for education and community building.
