Bust out your advent calendar because for one weekend only, Santa agreed to bring us the seasonal spirit of joy and pain!

Come light your menorah flame, but beware, these aren’t the dreidel games you’re used to. Don’t be a Grinch and come out and play with us. We’re ready to warm you up for winter solstice!

Party is only included with the weekend pass. Dinner on Saturday is included with the pass (GF/VG options available at registration).

Fri, 12/8- Eggnog and Soup

Meet & Greet - 7 PM

Join us for a BYOB/420 friendly meet and greet with Team Soup! Tour The Fallout Shelter & join us for a festively fetishy bonfire.

Sat, 12/9 – Santa’s Bloody Red Boots

This is our blood play-themed day.

Under your boot: Stomping, licking and fucking! - 12 PM

This ain’t about boot blacking... this ain’t about leather care... this is all about boot love, boot violence and boot sex. Why do people like boots? How does such a utilitarian object turn into one of the most fetishized items in our lifestyle? Come have some Team Soup-style fun with boots.

Realistic Conflict Resolution Within 24/7 Dynamics – 2:30 PM

Let's face it, we have all seen M/s conflict resolution classes that propose one of two options: set the dynamic aside while in conflict or fall back to the dynamic and remove the voice of the slave completely. But do either of these options work or even make sense? Nope! So let's talk about how to resolve conflict like adults in an M/s dynamic.

Blood Punching: Let's Make a Bitch Bleed! – 5:30 PM

Sometimes it's hard to decide between a rough body scene or a blood play scene. But why not combine them into a powerful new type of play? The journey will start with some knife play, a few cuts, and then a variety of rough body play that's guaranteed to get the blood flowing. This will be a primal, aggressive journey and is not for the weak-stomached.

Dinner - 7 PM

Oh, Violent Night: An Atomic Fetish Party - 8 PM

Sun, 12/10 - A Christmas Carol

How to Shiv a Bitch - 11 AM

Knives are so much more than a way to remove wax. Knives are sensual, seductive and sharp! In this workshop, we will explore the basic knife types, their anatomy, their care and feeding, the safety aspect and of course basic techniques on how to seduce a mind with them.

So come join in while we learn from each other and really get to the point (and the edge and the side and the handle) of this oft-under-utilized piece of gear.

Head-Butts and Punches and Kicks...Oh My! And everything in between. - 1:30 PM

Sometimes you need to cast aside the toy bag and just get down to that basic, guttural, wonderfully animalistic type of play, the type of play where you use your brain and your body. But sometimes using yourself as an implement gets lost in the vast amounts of toys inhabiting O/our toy bags. W/we can forget that the bare hand, full contact no toy play can be used for so much more than spanking (although there is nothing wrong with a good bare-handed spank). Your body, if used correctly, can induce such varied sensations from loving and supportive to vicious and brutal and all points in between.

Power Imbalanced Relationships: What makes your heart happy and your bits tingle? – 3:30 PM

Power imbalanced relationships… not another class on M/s or D/s dynamics….UGH? Do you find yourself comparing your power dynamic to others in the scene and feeling like yours looks way different? There are as many styles of power-imbalanced relationships as there are people in them. A relationship should meet the needs of the people in it and make their hearts happy and their needs fulfilled. This workshop aims to provide some ideas and concepts to your journey as you craft the power-imbalancd relationship of your dreams.
