Come listen to Haven deLancret talk about exactly that from both as a child that was raised by geeky, pagan, poly, kinky, D/s, SCA, (maybe more) parents who is also raising kids of his own within many of those same lifestyles and others.

Rosy Cheeks: Taking Spanking Up A Notch

Presented by JeepDaddyChris & ruby_ruthie as seen on Fetlife's 'Kinky & Popular'

When a few slaps to the cheeks becomes something more...

It may have started with a test slap during sex and they didn’t turn around and slug you. It's moved on to a few swats, here and there. Maybe you pull them over your lap while sitting on the couch and you spank those beautiful globes half a dozen times. Now it's gotten to the point where they’re crawling over your lap and asking to be spanked. You might be thinking, "What have I created?"

Congratulations, you've got your partner interested in the submission and sensation of a firm hand. Now it's time to take it up a notch.

Chris and Ruth will demonstrate some of their regular play. Done correctly, it can leave her panting and begging for more. A good spanking can be like sex. Building up a good rhythm and your partner will anticipate the next blow. The sensations will build and spread over the entire body, sometimes even bringing her to orgasm.

They'll wrap up by taking questions from the audience, discuss techniques, implements and their love for spanking.


Chris & Ruth's Bio

Both Chris and Ruth grew up with a deep interest in spanking and met because of their love for it. They built their relationship with spanking as the foundation and continue to incorporate different types of play into their marriage. On FetLife, their videos have gained quite a following and they love an audience in real life as well. They’ve become very active in the fetish community co-hosting many events and have recently created a new event where people can come and explore their own kinks in what is currently the only place space for kinksters in Grand Rapids.




Debriefing on the Penal Code: Addressing Legal Issues with Alternative Lifestyles

Presented by Larissa Z. & Attorney Clark_Kent_

Living an alternative lifestyle, whether it be Kink, Poly, Swing or something else, will usually raise legal issues because those lifestyle choices do not usually fit within the framework of the law. BDSM as generally defined by the kink community is a mutually beneficial relationship where all parties involved derive some sort of satisfaction or pleasure from the BDSM relationship or acts performed during a scene. The Law however, has a different idea of BDSM. This difference in viewpoint can cause complication and lead to prosecution for serious felonies such as assault and/or battery and sexual assault crimes. This class will examine what the differences are between different criminal prosecutions and to what extent the law will allow such 'criminal conduct' to be excused by the fact that the injured participant consented to have harm done to her or him. We will also examine Michigan laws on consent and assault, the “Consent Counts” movement within the BDSM community, and privacy laws, as they relate to the idea of consent and a BDSM relationship.


Larissa Z's Bio

Larissa Z. is a Lansing-area attorney with experience in a variety of areas, including criminal law, family law, commercial real estate, estate planning, and discrimination to name a few. Larissa is friendly to alternative lifestyles, including the BDSM community, and has worked with clients over the years involved in non-traditional relationships. Her main professional goal is to ensure people understand the legal issues they are facing. Far too often, she has seen people act or not act, out of fear due to misunderstanding the law, or not understanding it at all. The law is inherently nebulous; she strives to provide clarity so that people can understand their choices and rights, and make informed decisions. Larissa is also a qualified Mediator for general civil matters and is currently undergoing certification for domestic matters. She has been practicing in the Lansing area for nearly 8 years, and has been nominated as a "Top of the Town" attorney for the past two years.
