Dear Readers...

Just a quickie little newsletter dashed out... because there are some interested classes coming up that I want to make sure to get info out on...

I'm just back from an exciting few days in LA where I attended the US premier of "007 Die Another Day", partied, visited with friends, jogged the Santa Monica beach barefoot and bathed in the warm sun - I had a great time!
Now I'm up laaaate, playing catch-up and getting ready for tomorrow.
It's going to be a full day of photo shoot for my upcoming bondage web site, BeautyBound.com

I'm shooting Sinnamon Love tomorrow... Ms. B on Saturday and Chanta Rose on Monday. Friday's shoot is followed by a presentation to the San Francisco women's SM club, The Exiles on Erotic Humiliation Play... A full day!

Because I'm so pressed for time tonight, I am not able to write out my full report on the rest of my recent adventures... I promise to get the scoop to you soon. I can't wait to tell you about London, Copenhagen, Bangkok, etc!

Thanks to those of you who told me how much they enjoyed the steamy report from the last edition! I hope to have more of those.

BTW, if you have general questions you want to ask me or want to visit with other fellow readers and students from all over the world, please feel free to stop by my little Yahoo Group. It's a sort of my virtual salon - quality people and quality conversation about kink.

Also... I'm using a new newsletter distribution program... I hope it's user friendly. Let me know if you have any problems.

:)

SAN FRANCISCO
December 6 & December 8
Two excellent classes by guest presenter, Peggy, a.k.a. O.

Class 1:
Friday, December 6 at QSM
"Terror and the Unkown"
"Heart racing ... adrenaline pumping ... every sound heard crystal clear as time slows down. The painful knowledge of uncertainty. Terror evokes all these things. Fear is a passionate emotion, a primal emotion. Fear is a tool. In a controlled space, the fine line between fear and passion becomes blurred.
Learning to control fears and cross over the threshold to passion is an art. Terror is an individual experience - no one responds the same way. The intimacy created when holding the emotions of your partner can be intense. This class will teach you how to negotiate a terror scene without losing the element of surprise, the basic psychological mechanics behind creating terror and the emotional monitoring and aftercare needed to create an intense experience for both Top and bottom."
Sliding Scale: $20 to $10. Doors open 7:00 PM. Class 7:30-10:00 PM.
For more info go to QSM at qualitysm.com
Or call 415-550-7776 or 800-537-5815

Class 2:
Sunday, December 8 sponsored by Fire Horse Productions
"Rebuilding After a D/s Relationship"
"This is a class for both dominants and submissives. When a D/s relationship ends, both doms and subs can feel purposeless and lost.
A sub has the challenge of reshifting their primary focus from someone else to themselves and assuming decision-making responsibilities that may be new.
A dominant has the challenge of rethinking their decision making process with a refocus on their own priorities without the mitigating presence of another to consider.
This class will talk about the grieving process and outline effective coping methods and ideas on how to restructure one's life without encountering pitfalls such as rebound relationships."
Cost $20. Doors open 1pm to 1:30pm. Class 1:30pm to 3:30pm
Location: 848 Community Space, 848 Divisadero Street San Francisco, CA 94117-1506 (near Fulton Street)
For more info email info@fhp-inc.com

Peggy a.k.a. O has been in the lifestyle for about nine years, six of which have been spent in M/s relationships. She identifies as a bisexual switch. Currently she lives in South Florida where she runs Dykes 'n Dolls, a women's BDSM education group. She has presented workshops at numerous leather events, including Black Rose, TES 30, Thunder in the Mountains and GMSMA Leatherfest. She has also been on the boards of the Lesbian Sex Mafia and the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom. Her perspectives on relationships have always been tempered with a sense of humor, a healthy dose of irreverence and a large helping of common sense.

12/1 COOL PARTY IN SF
Madame S/Mr S Leather, Spectator Magazine/Spectator.net, and Bondage.com welcomes you to come and party at "Players & Players: A Celebration of Sex in San Francisco."

(Text from their press release.)
"We want this to be the sort of sex-positive and sexed-up event that helps bring together all the individual communities within the Bay Area: Straight, gay, bi, transsexual, fetish kinkster, BDSM player, or comfortable old vanilla. From stripper to escort, from pro-domme to rentboy, from house mom to mack daddy, from madam to madame: this is your chance to have the kind of wild, only-in-San-Francisco night we all moved to the Bay Area to experience.
Be a part of it! We want you there dressed in your coolest tribute to the tireless laborers of the local adult industry. Appropriately inappropriate attire is strongly encouraged -- fetish gear, stripper style, pimp threads, ho' clothes, leather, latex, lace, electrical tape: If it makes you feel sexy, show it off! This is not a play party -- It's a sexy, kinky extravaganza!

When & Where : Sunday, December 1 at San Francisco's DNA Lounge, 375 Eleventh Street. From 9:00 pm until afterhours.
(Unfortunately, all you pretty young things, it's 21 and over, with ID,only!)

Turntable talent : Looq.com's DJ Spesh (from Jondi & Spesh), 10pm - 3am (with an hour intermission at 11pm for theatrical performances on the main stage) and DJ gEoff (Stargaze), 9 - 10:pm

Stage shows
Fetish fashion from Madame S and Dark Garden
Erotic dance by Vanessa, "Miss Nude San Francisco 2002," with Whisper, first runner-up
Latin dance from Arianna Avila, TS dance performer, and troupe

Closing event : First-ever "S.F. Players' and Scenesters' Walk" Players and partyers of the audience get a chance to strut their stuff before an audience of admiring pervs.

Emcees: Paul Nathan & Selina Raven

The Fine Print : While we can't afford to throw a party for 500 of our closest friends, tickets are only $20 in advance. Or $25 at the door. . . in the highly unlikely event it doesn't sell out.

"Players & Players" tickets are available at the Spectator offices, 5835 Doyle St., #103, Emeryville,
Madame S Leather, 321 Seventh St. SF (Wed-Sun noon-7pm)
Mr. S Leather, 310 Seventh St. SF (everyday 11am-7pm)
