IMPACT PLAY WORKSHOP


Date and Time: 7:30pm, Sunday 16th July
Price: $25 Per Person

Impact play is about far more than punishment, and as such, those interested in impact play come with many different reasons in mind. It can be a tool for such a variety of experiences – including as an ordeal, for an endorphin high, for a bonding experience, or as a ritualistic encounter. Impact play can signify devotion, or can be simply to achieve orgasm. It can be for one or more of these reasons.

Impact play can include spanking, flogging, caning, paddling, strapping or any other device you choose to use as impact equipment. By the end of this class you should be able to comfortably handle impact equipment to successfully play out your fantasies. BJ will also show you how to use your impact equipment to elicit specific responses from your bottom, depending on what you desire to achieve. This class is open to all experience levels.

PROCEEDS DONATED TO THE RUSSIAN LGBT NETWORK


You most likely have heard of the atrocities occurring presently in Chechnya. We at Eagle Leather have felt we really can't sit around and do nothing while this is happening in the world, but we've been at a bit of a loss how we can help.

Then we finally found a good news story coming out of this horror - The Russian LGBT Network, who we have raised money for in the past with our workshops, have just managed to free 40 of the prisoners in the Chechnyan camps:

"The Russian LGBT Network continues to work on the evacuation of those persecuted by the authorities in Chechnya because of their real or assumed homosexuality. To date around 60 people have contacted the Russian LGBT Network. Some of these people are still in the area and are in need of urgent evacuation, while others have managed to relocate themselves but nevertheless need further assistance. More than 30 people have already been provided with support."

"We know that people and organizations all over the world are collecting money in order to support our work in evacuating people from the region, and we are greatly appreciative. This money will go towards transportation, accommodation, basic goods, medical and psychological support as well as the preparation of necessary documents. It is dangerous for most of the survivors to stay in Russia; therefore, we are preparing for their evacuation from the country."


The Russian LGBT Network is an excellent organisation which is constantly hard at work in grass roots activism and affecting real change in the world, and we believe by donating to this organisation it is the best way we can help Chechnya right now. We'll be donating 100% of the ticket sales from this workshop and our Electric Sex workshop to the Russian LGBT Network.

Even if you can't attend this workshop personally, we would love it if you could donate what you can to help them in their work.
