The Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe–drunk, drug-addled madman, maniac … or was he? Much of what we know today about the Master of the Macabre is based in misinformation and falsehood. Poe’s literary legacy and reputation was hijacked by his greatest nemesis, Rufus Wilmot Griswold. Griswold laid the foundation for many of the popular impressions of Poe and those legends linger to this day. Although Edgar Allan Poe’s life was riddled with tragedy, his contribution to literature is immense and often overlooked. This presentation will refute the common myths about the life of Edgar Allan Poe, and also explore the unsolved mystery of his death.
Speaker: Genevieve Andrews-Kelly

Roses & Thorns: An Introduction to Impact Play (18+)
Floggers, paddles, cat o’ nine tails, and other tools created originally for corporal punishment during less civilized times are fairly commonplace in adult play these days but their use might intimidate newcomers to the scene. Why would someone want to experience the flick of flogger tails? What kind of person picks up a paddle to use on another consenting person? Is this type of play only for someone “thick-skinned” who seems invulnerable? Or is it about exploring vulnerability, curiosity, and possibility?

Impact play can open up emotional and sensory doors that may lead to a transformative journey. Before rushing forward, join an entry-level conversation with impact enthusiast Joao-Pierre about considerations to weigh, questions to ask, and even a few mistakes he learned from when getting started in this scene. Discussion and show-and-tell only.
Speaker: Joao-Pierre S. Ruth

Shadows of the mind: Hypnosis with Baron Voltage (18+)
Many say the nature of those that walk the shadows are those of predators; beasts that stalk the streets seeking their next meal, engrossed by a hunger they can never sate. Others feel they are sleek creatures abandoned by the daylight forever cursed to never know the joy of the pleasures of the mortal mind. Hypnosis, an embrace of the mind some might say, grants us with abilities we have longed for, dreamed of, to bring the kiss of the shadows to the flesh of the mind and turn our imaginations into playgrounds unbridled and unbound, in every plausible nature you can conceive. Come to learn how to embrace that power, and unlock the potential of your mind and inner beast.
