Workshops

EDUCATION & SEMINARS

We are excited to announce that for 2017 we have added top notch educators, presenters and speakers at our Erotic Masquerade Ball (or EMB for short) Weekend event. From Tantra teachers and "Sex"perts you will have classes that will help your relationships, enhance your personal sexuality and inform you on techniques and etiquette of living a sex positive life.

Unlike previous years our workshops and performances will now be held in our new expanded seperate space in the hotel and not inside of the Rochester Erotic Arts Festival. 

Your VIP EMB2017 Tickets include ALL of our workshops, entertainment and parties.  We have also added some new and exciting "Playshops" that we think you are going to love! There is a small fee for each of the playshops and space is limited for each session.

We hope you will love all the new changes for 2017!

Intro to Tantra

With some brief overview information so we all understand the principles as well as some basic anatomy that might surprise you (focusing of course on those juicy erogenous areas!) we will present how to extend and turn up the heat in your intimate encounters. Learn about the Tantric approach to sex is and why it’s important for modern lovers. If you have always wondered what the definitions and history of Tantra are all about, as well as practical ways you can take these ideas into your experiences, even at this event, come and discover, learn, enjoy, laugh, and become a better lover: to yourself and your partner(s)!

Guided Tantra Intimate Experience

The event is for couples, whether you just met or have been together for many decades, and is a fully interactive session where you focus all of your energies on each other as partners, being guided through intimacy exercises including sound, breath, energy and conscious touch. This class is hands on and adult-oriented, with a deep level of intimacy involved, and you will experience a level of connection you may never have experienced before! Through soft sensual music, aroma, candles, a setting designed for intimacy, you and your partner will sit, facing each other as you begin a journey of erotic bliss, and lead each other through portals of ecstasy through intentional touch. The seductive voice of the guide will lead you as you pleasure and are pleasured. Touching and being touched. Loving and being loved. The class will be limited in numbers due to the space required. Each couple will have their own sacred space set up for them to be able to truly engage each other. Times will be listed on the master schedule. There is an additional fee for this class.

So you have considered the swinging lifestyle or other non-monogamous activities with your partner - now what? Swinging can be a great way to expand your relationship, but there are many topics to be aware of before you decide to get started. We share our experiences, answer your questions and help you get informed about the Swinging Lifestyle.

Swinger 201: Let's Get This Play Party Started!

If you’re tired of spending hours of time getting to know the couple that doesn’t play, isn’t ready to play, or worse yet…the couple that is nothing but DRAMA…this workshop led by The Dominatrix of Ditties is for you!  You’ll leave this workshop with ideas on how to find and approach couples, and discover what questions to ask a couple so you can find out if they’re a suitable couple to play with.   You’ll learn to spot the drama long before you hit the bedroom, and how to exit a play session gracefully when things go south.
