Lady Elsa and Boi Kris

Lady Elsa and Boi Kris, International Power Exchange 2012, are leatherdykes with a passion for kink education.  Nicknamed “the teacher and the preacher,” they have a fun-loving, passionate, and non-traditional power exchange dynamic in which each contributes from their own unique skill set, defying stereotypes at every turn.  They enjoy travelling all over the United States presenting workshops and seminars that help individuals and couples create the power exchange relationships and kink lifestyles they have always dreamed of.

Lady Elsa, “the teacher,” is a tech geek, a wordsmith, an educator, and a prolific and popular blogger on topics including BDSM spirituality, service topping, and non-traditional power exchange.  She is the co-founder of Andromeda, a BDSM organization for kinky women and transfolk, and has held various offices in NLA Indianapolis.  Favorite things include clothespin play, butches in business attire, and endorphins.

Boi Kris, “the preacher,” is a cheerful, outgoing boi who loves to network and socialize. He has been a part of the BDSM community since the early 1990s, and has been in service to Lady Elsa since 2009. He is a certified Laughter Yoga leader, and is the founder of Indiana Newbie Sponsors, providing a venue for experienced players to give back to the community by offering their advice and support to newcomers. An enthusiastic switch, he loves challenging people’s expectations, topping for heavy impact play, and sitting at his Lady’s feet.

Naming–and Moving Past–the Labels (1 to 1.5 hours)

Have you ever felt frustrated because the labels available for defining your BDSM identity just don’t fit very well? You’re not alone. Our community loves its labels, but so often they don’t tell the whole story. This hands-on, interactive workshop invites participants to explore the complex ways in which they define themselves as kinksters, and how to use labels as a starting point–not a conclusion.

Clips, Clamps, and Clothespins 101 (1 to 2 hours)

A bag of clips and clamps may just be the perfect SM toy! They’re inexpensive, relatively safe, and anyone can use them to create a variety of sensations, regardless of dexterity, strength, or experience level. In this workshop you’ll learn how to select and evaluate various types of clips and clamps, how to safely apply and remove them to create relaxing or amped-up scenes, and how to construct zippers and other devices that add versatility to your clamp collection.
