Playing Well With Others! – by Mollena & Lee Harrington

Two kinkster dynamites have written a book to guide anyone who’s interested in joining the kink community, regardless of what level of involvement is being sought. Their book description is underneath the video!

Whether you’re a trembling novice or a jaded expert, there’s always something new to be discovered in the endlessly changing, complex and titillating world of kink.

While there are plenty of other books out there that explain how to give a spanking or tie a half-hitch, Playing Well With Others is the first book that explains kink culture — the munches, parties, leather bars, conferences, workshops, fetish nights, exploratoriums and all the other gatherings of kinksters that turn BDSM and leather from a bedroom predilection to a lifestyle and a community.

You’ll learn to:

Examine your own motivations, needs, wants and desires
Ease your way into established communities
Understand etiquette in different adventurous sex communities
Familiarize yourself with the many types of events available to you
Care for your relationships as you explore new territory
Negotiate for play and aftercare
Go back to the “world at large” without ruffling feathers

…and, of course, answer the all-important question: What do you wear?!

The team of Harrington and Williams offers 30-plus years of experience in diverse kink communities: top, bottom and switch; gay, bi and straight; female, male and trans; white and POC. Both former titleholders and international educators, they are an unbeatable pair of “sexual sherpas” with an inimitable voice and a great deal of wisdom.

Playing Well With Others is an unprecedented and essential guidebook for anyone who wants to explore or understand the “community” aspect of the kink lifestyle.

Woodhull’s Sexual Freedom Summit

September 21, 22 & 23, 2012

Woodhull’s Sexual Freedom Day Events in 2010 & 2011 Were Amazing

Don’t miss our 3rd Annual Sexual Freedom Summit in Washington, DC September 21, 22 & 23, 2012! The theme for the 2012 Sexual Freedom Summit, “Prohibition Politics: The Assault on Sexual Freedom,” highlights the increasingly vicious attacks in the resurgent war on sex. We will share information and strategies to use in the fight for human rights and sexual freedom, and against the denial of the right to relationships, and families.  We will address the undermining of access to health care and reduction of access to comprehensive sexuality education, as well as the criminalization of sexual expression and pleasure.

While the Summit’s focus is serious, it is also a time for fun and celebration too. Start your weekend off on Friday night with “Popcorn and Porn.”  Woodhull Board members (and consummate porn-makers in their own rights) Buck Angel and Nina Hartley, host this rollicking variation on more conventional movie nights and meet and greet events, with good food, good conversation, and good (and bad!) porn as well as a very special appearance by Porno Jim!

Saturday our work begins in earnest with a jam-packed educational program, our Sexual Freedom Institute. Expert panels and interactive workshops explore a full range of sexual freedom issues in the context of “Prohibition Politics:  The Assault on Sexual Freedom”. Confirmed speakers include Diana AdamsBuck Angel, Ajamu BarakaEric Berkowitz, Melissa Sontag Broudo, Brandon Lacy Campos, Kelly CooksonRev.
