Kacie Cunningham
Indiana
I'm Kacie Cunningham (soon to be Kacie Haven). Master and I have been living together for 7 years and are tying the knot in April! During that time, we've soared to heights I wouldn't have believed possible, and floundered so hard we've nearly given up a time or two. Those are the experiences that led me to write Conquer Me, a book aimed mostly at female submissives/slaves, but also at their Masters/Owners etc. I wanted, so often, a book to guide me in submission, communication, openness ... a book to make me feel like I wasn't alone in my struggles. There was no such book, so I wrote it.
More...
Even now, there are times I pick it up to remind myself, because I gave some pretty good advice in there! Honestly though it's worse when a good friend points out to me that I'm making the very mistakes I caution about lol. I admit, putting yourself out there in the world so publicly is really opening yourself up to your loved ones 'humbling' you when they feel it's necessary.

Kevin & Katie
alberta, Canada

Kevin and katie have been married and maintained a M/s relationship for 11 years. They haven't won any special titles, but they have survived raising teenagers, full time employment, a total-loss house fire, correcting huge debt, and Alberta winters (-43F as we write this). The most valuable thing they bring to Power Exchange topics is reality. They have years of clinical experience watching what makes couples succeed and what causes them to fail. They lead Power Exchange discussion groups and hear the real struggles faced by real couples. Their presentations are a rollicking mix of humor and honesty – like any good scene, you might not be sure whether it feels good, or you should cry.

We have presented on Power Exchange topics at national events in both Canada and the US. We believe strongly in helping people create, maintain and optimize their relationships. Our goal is to help individuals and relationships grow through proper focus on Things That Really Matter (patent pending).

More...

Kevin is a registered Psychologist in Canada, New Zealand and Australia. He has been helping individuals and couples repair and grow for over 16 years. He taught for the University of Alberta, and regularly presents to corporate and community clients, as well as the kink community.

katie spent 15 years as a Motivation and Life Change presenter, while simultaneously supporting her family through teaching art in her private studio.

One of the best vouches we can offer came from a participant at a recent workshop. She said "you guys seemed like actual people and not the scary dungeon lords that I had conjured up in my mind." How can anything we write about ourselves beat that?

We've organized events like the panel discussion on Power Exchange Dynamics in Chicago in March of 2013.

More...
Ten wonderful years of growth, exploration and fulfillment as Master/slave. We've successfully raised a family, dealt with serious health issues, and faced the natural ebbs/flows and challenges that engaging in a Master/slave dynamic can bring. We've put in a lot of sweat equity into living something that means so much to us, and have found love and happiness in being who we are. Today, we continue to grow, as our path has taken us to explore a more spiritual element, as well as learning to share our experiences to other, teaching when we're asked to. All the while, we continue to learn daily what it means to be a Master/slave, as we never stop exploring the potential within each other and what we have together.

CLASSES

Lifting with your knees
Master Doug & slave lori
Ever wonder how housework and trying to please your dominant could actually hurt your power exchange? Yes, Virginia, it is possible. In this class, we will discuss some of the ways we can strengthen our power exchange relationships and learn to be active in our submission and bring joy to our dominants without stealing power from them. This class will be helpful to both sides of the slash in learning how building up a positive attitude can lead to empowering both sides to live a more dynamic power exchange. This class will draw upon the experiences of all present and hopefully begin a dialogue between the participants in order to facilitate a new understanding of how seemingly innocuous behavior can cause harm in a power exchange.

Introducing Rituals into the Relationship
Mistress Constance
Rituals comfort, inspire and satisfy us emotionally. Everyone performs rituals on a daily basis, whether they recognize them or not. The purpose of this presentation is to recognize the rituals that are already in use and suggest more that can be incorporated into a relationship. Different kinds of rituals and their purposes will be covered, as well as public rituals and private ones. Also covered are reasons rituals are suspended and how to reintroduce them, as well as the emotional effect of rituals. Audience participation is encouraged, including talking about the kinds of rituals used and the purpose they accomplish in different relationships.

Cuckqueaning?!? Going Down the rabbit hole.....how does this work in a power exchange relationship
Master Doug & slave lori
Ever wonder how or why someone would want to be cucked? Have you ever dreamed of cucking someone? What does being cucked feel like? How about doing the cucking what is that like? Ever been interested in being the third in the relationship? All this and more (whispers chastity) will be touched upon in the class. It been a very long time since I have kissed Master and might not ever get to again. Want to know why? See you there.......

Male Submission 101
Mistress Simone
Ok, so you found a boy who you desire to train. Now what? This demo covers some of the basic concepts of male submission from cbt to training positions. Ms Simone will share her insights from 20 years as a lifestyle and professional Mistress. She will show you how to develop control of the male submitting to you from different perspectives such as sensual, maternal and strict. A variety of male sub genres will be discussed such as sissies, cuckolds, pain sluts, crossdressers, sexual slaves and service boys. One of her goals is to enable the feminine audience to tap their feminine wiles, goddess energy and female eroticism to enhance the connection between them and their males. While this class focuses on the female dominant/male submissive dynamic, all who are interested in learning more about the femme domme mystique are welcome to attend. OpenQ/A's are encouraged throughout.

Transparency in an M/s Relationship
Mistress Constance
Transparency is a popular term, but what does it really mean? How much transparency is too much, how much is not enough? How does a slave know what needs to be told, how does a Master know when something isn’t being said? And finally, how much transparency does a Master owe to the slave? Communication is one of the cornerstones of power exchange relationships, learn how to use transparency to strengthen and deepen your relationships

Being a Dominant Woman: Thoughts and Reflections
Mistress Simone
Within this lecture/discussion, Mistress Simone will attempt to remove the veil surrounding our lifestyle;s most elusive and unknown creature : the female dominant. In approaching the dominant woman, protocol should be stressed. Mistress Simone will cover the what protocol and procedures are best used to communicate with a Mistress.
Topics touched upon in this lecture may include:
*What we look for in a submissive.
*Immediate turnoffs and turn ons.
*The top ten subbies and why their approach does or doesn't work.
*Guidelines for engaging in a proper introduction to the domme.
*What gets our attention in a positive manner.

While the class is geared towards the female dominant/male submissive dynamic,all are welcome to attend. Many of the protocol covered is fluid for genders. See what you can do to please your domina and how to get your needs met as well. All are welcome to come take a peek into a female domme's mind.

Vulnerability & Intimacy in D/s Relationships
Graydancer
There is a lot of focus on trust in D/s relationships, but there's another quality that is necessary for intimacy: the discomfort and risk of vulnerability for both sides of the power exchange. Can you risk being all of yourself, even the parts that you aren't proud of? Can you still believe your partner will love you even after they know you? Authenticity carries risk. This class explores some of the barriers to intimacy, including things we often substitute for the scary feeling of "being in the mess together". Drawing on the work of experts on vulnerability such as Brené Brown as well as hard-learned personal experience, Gray and Naiia lead the discussion of how to take the plunge and fully realize the potential of an intimate D/s relationship

Power Exchange Scenes - How to add Energy and Intensity
Kevin & Katie
Hang on! PXS doesn't have "play" related classes and yet here is one about scenes? What's going on?
Kevin and katie will -not- be teaching you to swing a flogger. This 2 part workshop is about the Power Exchange elements that can be nurtured and highlighted during your regular "play" sessions. They help you tune-in to the Power Exchange opportunities and learn to enhance the Power Exchange connection within your own play style.
Kevin and katie will give you suggestions for new skills to create a deeper connection with your partner. Those just beginning to add Power Exchange to their scenes will get great "starter" ideas. They will also describe techniques that are more complex and can take years to create. There will be a lot of discussion, some demonstrations, and several chances to practice on your partner! Bring your partner (or someone who has agreed to team up with you) and be ready to try some new experiences. Those without a partner are also encouraged to attend and participate.

***Note - this is a two part session, taught back to back with a break in between***

Long Distance D/s
Graydancer
For the first several years of their D/s relationship, Graydancer and Naiia lived across the country from each other. They developed several techniques for maintaining intimacy over the distance, as well as opportunities for service, for sexual enjoyment, and built the foundations for the current Very Close D/s relationship they enjoy. They will explain the how's and why's and the principles behind them, so that you can apply them to your own relationship and leverage the power of distance to paradoxically increase your intimacy
Stacks Image 7271
Self-Discipline before Discipline: What makes you fit to lead or follow?
Kevin & Katie
Being in charge of another person is a big job. Most of us are mediocre at keeping ourselves on track, let alone leading another. Submissives are disciplined by another and yet sometimes struggle to discipline themselves. Both Dominants and submissives can grow in their roles, and also in their overall happiness and success.
Stacks Image 7479
Navigating Low Tides (The ebbs/flows in a M/s relationship)
Master Michael & angie
As we sail along in the journey of our relationships, one day we may realize it's been six months since we've felt the current of our dynamic. We may not be able to remember the last time we've had an evening of intimate protocol or even a simple night out! Masters and slaves, Dominants and submissives, we all can get stuck in low tides and it can be very tough to navigate the relationship out of them.
This class will cover:
* What low/high tides are
* How low tides can affect a relationship
* Lessons learned in how to navigate through a low tide
Master Michael and slave angie like to conduct this class as a guided discussion to encourage participants to share their experiences and ask questions. Throughout the class, Master Michael and slave angie will share their own personal experiences from ten years together. It is their goal that by sharing and learning from each other, the class can begin to chart their own courses out of the low tides

Coping with Health Issues/Disabilities in a Master/slave Dynamic
Master Michael & angie
A slave who loves to take care of her Master, her M/s, Leather and Kink communities with fervor and zest. A Master who explores life to the fullest whether on a motorcycle or hiking in the mountains and deserts or getting involved with the local leather clubs. When the onset of lupus became a life-changing event for the slave;; when the Master realized that his lifelong struggles with communication and social interaction were a sign of Aspergers;; both realized that their dynamic would take some interesting twists and turns.
The class will cover:
* How health issues/disabilities can affect a dynamic
* Some suggestions on keys for coping
* Other considerations for taking care of parties involved in the dynamic long-term
Master Michael and slave angie will share how illnesses and disabilities have affected their M/s relationship and their ongoing discoveries in keeping their dynamic intact and growing. Michael and Angie like to conduct this class as a guided discussion to encourage participants to share their experiences and ask questions.

The Big/little Dynamic: Coloring outside the lines
amaia & Daddy Michael
This class explores the dynamic of the Big/lg modality. General observations of what it means to be a Big and a little are presented and discussed. We discuss different complexities that arise in this dynamic, as well as how it is similar and different to other D/s dynamics. We tackle the most often asked questions of the D/lg dynamic. This class is great for those that already find themselves in a B/lg dynamic as well as those that want to have a better understanding of the little in their play space

Monogamy in a Poly World
Joe & Mona
Only want to be with your Master or slave? Wish folks would stop asking you to “join” them? We’ll talk about our relationship and how being committed in a monogamist M/s relationship has survived in a heavy poly world
Stacks Image 7791
D/lg 201
amaia & Daddy Michael
So you've decided that living the D/lg (Big/little) dynamic is one that suits you in one form or another. So now what? This class will dive into specific areas that can be bumps in the road, dealing with emotional vulnerability as well as walking that balance of being a nurturing dominant. The class will combine group discussion as well as a break out time for Bigs and littles to talk separately

Stacks Image 7895
Humor in the Relationship
Joe & Mona
Isn’t this supposed to be fun? We will talk about how humor has kept us together through the years and how it’s gotten us through both the good times and the worst of times and how we even use it in the play space
