Mayhem!

The Weekend Event for Leatherwomen

May 8 – 10, 2009
Vancouver, Canada

Queer women’s BDSM, play, sexuality and fun. All. Weekend. Long.

We’re completely pleased to be bringing you a conference-style weekend, with play parties, education, entertainment, and a line-up of brilliant presenters. We would like to invite all past, present and future women who enjoy woman-to-woman BDSM to our unique weekend of kink, play, and fun.

Whether you’re just beginning to explore kink, or consider yourself a seasoned veteran, Mayhem! is the place to play hard, play soft, learn, or just hang out and socialize with some very damn cool women.

History

Mayhem! will be the first women’s kink conference in Western Canada since 1993 — and the first one ever in East Vancouver, the area many local lesbians call home.

The Mayhem! weekend is organized by Canadian Mayhem/Bride of Pride. Our goal has always been to put on the exact kind of party that we all dream of attending, and of course that includes inviting everyone along.

SM 101 - A Realistic Introduction


It’s known by a number of names: SM, BDSM, sadomasochism, B&D, and several more.  What is it, exactly?  What’s involved?  How can somebody enjoy pain?  Don’t those who do it get hurt?  Were these people abused as children?  Jay Wiseman, author of one of the best selling “how to” books on the subject, will talk about the myths and realities of this intense form of eroticism.  Topics covered will include an overview of what is (and what is not) involved, consent and negotiation, basic techniques, psychological aspects, safety measures, commonly used items of equipment, and aftercare.  He will even give you a few tips on how you might start doing your own explorations.

Jay Wiseman is a prominent American BDSM writer, speaker and practitioner, best-known for the popular book, SM 101: A Realistic Introduction, which is considered to be one of the best introductory books on the subject. He is based in San Francisco, California
