Erotic Bondage with Esinem rotic bondage is an art form. It is a powerful means of communication that is much more about handling emotions than it is about tying knots. Bruce, who performs under the name ESINEM, has been studying Japanese bondage – aka shibari (tying) or kinbaku (tight binding) – for nearly a decade, travelling to Japan to train with masters of the art. He has performed at dozens of fetish venues worldwide, including Torture Garden, Wasteland, Nuit Demonia and the Rubber Ball. Bruce is passionate about teaching and sharing his understanding of bondage and has developed a teaching methodology that simplifies and accelerates the learning process, whilst encouraging students to develop their own style and creativity by practising on each other. Safety is very important. How to tie safely and how to avoid accidents is covered in all lessons. Only a few basic knots are used in Japanese bondage. Once these standard ties have been mastered, they can be used creatively to turn kinbaku, from a means of restraint, into a very intense form of communication. Come and watch a master at work and learn how to turn your boy scout knots into a passionate ‘dance with rope’. Classes are held in Camberwell.

once restrictive, historical undergarment, the corset has become an empowering statement of feminine fashion and essentially glamourous outerwear. Corsetières are continuing to push both stylistic and pattern boundaries. Among the drop dead designs to enhance your female loveliness this season, we like Velda Lauder’s cheeky corset waistcoat and Maya Hansen’s long, long line corset dresses. Corsets are sized according to your waist size, not dress size. Look to buy a corset 2–4 inches (5–10cm) smaller than your natural waist measurement. Don’t be shy – ask our lovely corsetières to slip their tapes around your waist and advise you on the best styles to suit your shape.

reasts, boobs, tits, norks, baps, puppies, bumpy jumpers, whatever you want to call them, most of us associate the female breasts with sex appeal. But shock news; Page 3 of The Sun would have held no interest for many people from other cultures and in other times. The ancient Egyptians generally went bare breasted, while the traditional Japanese kimono is worn to reveal the nape of the neck, rather than the cleavage. Up until the Renaissance, here in the now breastobsessed west, we covered or minimised bosoms. Corsets that supported the breast started to appear around the mid 15th century – worn particularly by the upper classes, who didn’t need the freedom of movement required for labouring that working class women did. Bodices, with a tie under the bust for extra support, were a more functional alternative for them. Corsetry at various times was fought against because of its tendency to impede full movement, although some doctors argued it was needed to manage women’s biology and their morality! Bra-like garments crop up intermittently over many centuries, but finally start to emerge in a repeated, recognisable format in the 19th century. The London Science Museum has the oldest example of a push up bra, from the 1800s, but this is a rarity! In the late 1800s, in the USA, Olivia Flynt was granted patents for ‘corsets’ that were significantly more like bras, whilst in France, Cadolle claim to have invented the first modern bra in 1889. In the 20th century, bras became more common; Mary Phelps Jacob is credited with the first bra patent in the USA, after devising her own arrangement with silk handkerchiefs and pink ribbon to conceal her reportedly well-endowed bosom beneath a sheer dress. In the 20s the fashionably androgynous figure was achieved through girdles, starting at the waist, and rather bandeau-like brassieres. Ida Rosenthal developed a sizing system at this time, having noticed that women do vary in curviness as well as back size. The 30s saw a plethora of styles appearing, which were consolidated during the 40s – in part because women were provided with underwear as part of their uniform. From the 30s to the 50s, ‘pointy’ was the idealised silhouette, which led to the iconic spiral stitched bullet bra that is still seen today in fashion shoots and on the retro scene. In theory, in the 70s we all burnt our bras... in practice that turns out to be a myth! One notorious protest against the 1968 Miss America beauty pageant in Atlantic City saw women placing symbols

the bras

bra sizing izing is currently a major issue in the bra industry, so much so that Kiss Me Deadly, and other designer brands have been conducting a survey on it, which you can find on the KMD website. Traditionally, bra sizing is done like this: Measure under your breasts (not tightly, not loosely, just the measurement without any clothes on). If it’s an even number, add 4 inches. If it’s odd, add 5. This is your back size, i.e., 32, 34, 36, 38 etc. Your back size generally relates to your dress size, so for example a size 10 is usually a 34, a size 12 usually a 36, and so on, although not always. Now measure over the bust at its fullest point, without clothes on. If your overbust is the same as your back size (NOT your underbust measurement), then you have an A cup. If one inch more, you have a B cup, if two inches more you are a C cup, and so on.

fashion icon

bra with straps but missing – you guessed it – the cups. An item for the bedroom or similar, offering no support for day to day life! Quarter cup – Generally unsuitable for larger bust sizes. Minor support to give a pert appearance and maximum nipplage (a word recently invented at a gathering of small lingerie outfits in lieu of one suitable!). Demi cup – low cut, but generally not revealing the nipples. Balconette – a bra with a squarer neckline. Plunge – a bra with a deep neckline, displaying a lot of cleavage. Padded – a bra that adds volume to the bust, traditionally with stuffing – these days often with silicone, gel or air (deflating boobs are a risk!). Push up – think of those Wonderbra ads – vavavoom for bosoms! Strapless/multi-way/convertible – bras designed to be worn in a variety of ways to fit discreetly under different clothing necklines. Front fastening – worn to annoy easily confused lovers (although side fastening and magnet fastening bras are probably better for this purpose). Bralet – a garment that looks like a soft cup bra (i.e. one without a wire) but that, for reasons of design or fabric used, doesn’t offer support. It’s better to wear these over a supportive bra if you have a larger bust or gravity is impacting on you more than you’d like. Longline or midi-line – a bra where the underbust panel comes further down the body. Generally considered to be retro- or vintageinspired, and currently very much in fashion. Moulded cup – the most common everyday bras now have a cup that’s pre-made, then covered in opaque fabric. They tend to move your breast into the shape of the cup rather than vice versa, and they prevent nipples showing even in chilly weather.

and tools of oppression in a ‘freedom trash can’. Not surprisingly, many deeply uncomfortable undergarments were thrown in, bras amongst them. Media reporting of this coined the term ‘bra burning’ that endures to this day. Bra burning was much discussed, but seldom happened, which is terribly disappointing if you like to rant about feminism. So, that brings us to the modern day, where we can choose from many of the historical styles (including corsetry, of which there is a wide array at Erotica) plus a whole new selection! Here are a few terms to help you along, and some sizing tips. by Catherine at Kiss Me Deadly www.kissmedeadly.co.uk

• •

This is not a perfect system; people vary in levels of squishiness, and different styles will suit you, or not, depending on your body shape even if they are technically the same size (just like any other item of clothing). But it’s a useful guide. Your bra band should sit flat on your skin and not feel too tight nor move around too much, and your breast should fill the cups without said cups spilling over. Most designer or boutique brands use this system. It’s a ratio measurement, and as most brands use stretchy fabric now, you do have some flexibility. The general rule is that if you go a back size down, so a cup size up, and vice versa; so for example, someone who usually wears a 34B can occasionally also wear a 32C or a 36A. Some newer brands are measuring the underbust very tightly and calling this your back size; then measuring the overbust and following the same procedure as above. Obviously, this gives you a much larger bust size than the traditional system. It’s not just dress shops that engage in vanity sizing!

latex radical rubber he ‘noughties’ was the decade that put latex on the fashion map. Once the preserve of rubber aficionados, latex has now become almost mainstream. Since leading fashion gurus such as Vivienne Westwood and the late Alexander McQueen chose this remarkable material for their creations, we’ve seen it in a host of pop videos, on the stage (even at the Opera) and most recently when Lady Gaga met Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth clad in latex (Lady G that is, not the Queen!). So what’s the attraction of latex? It looks sexy of course, and feels wonderfully smooth and silky to wear, but latex’s most unique property is its incredible stretchiness, allowing designers to achieve skin-tight, figure-hugging effects not possible with other materials. For almost two decades, the Libidex label has been sought-after – famous for its catsuits and hoods, well tailored fit, and stunning fantasy creations. In recent years designer and company owner Simon Rose has pushed the barriers of latex design, and the label now boasts a huge range of garments, from basic knickers, stockings and tights, to corsets, dresses, tops, skirts, uniforms and a range of shirts, jeans, chaps and shorts for men. Libidex is also known for producing outfits in many different colours, including metallic and glittery finishes, using their own-brand latex sheeting, Radical Rubber. (Radical Rubber sells latex sheeting in one metre lengths, while many suppliers have minimum quantities of 20 metres, which can be very expensive if you only want to make one dress!) See the full range of Libidex clothing on their website, at their shop ‘Liberation’ in Covent Garden, and on Erotica’s stage this weekend. Find discounts on Libidex clothing, and money off tickets to clubs and events (including Erotica) by joining Libidex’s customer loyalty scheme at the Liberation Club. Look out for Libidex’s new ‘essentials’ range of quality latex clothes at affordable prices, and their website ‘instant ordering’ scheme that offers a range of items off the peg that can be delivered in just a few days.

rocka’ ockabilly, one of the earliest styles of rock and roll music, emerged in the southeastern US in the early 1950s. The term itself is a blend of ‘rock’ (from rock ’n’ roll) and ‘hillbilly’ (a reference to the country music of the 1940s and 50s). The influence of the style waned in the 1960s, but during the late 1970s and early 1980s, Rockabilly enjoyed a major revival in popularity that has endured to the present, mostly within a rockabilly subculture. Rockabilly is not so much a fashion, as a complete lifestyle to those who embrace its appeal; from hairstyle to hats, corsets to cars, bijou to bikes and all the accessories that a house and home can contain. Custom cars and bikes with pinstriping are an integral part of the scene. Go to any revival, retro meeting or Rockabilly show today and the heavy metal will be there; fins and hoods and enough chrome to make the eyes shine. Forget the energy crisis and hear the heartthrob of a souped up V8 rumble past, be amazed by the space and equipment of those classic American cars and cruise in your mind down the endless highways of the US of A. The fantasy diners from Postertown are waiting over the horizon, with Rock running hot and vast freezers filled with ice cream sodas and knickerbocker glories. Cafés and clubs have re-vamped or recreated their original look to be as faithful as possible to the atmosphere of a bygone time. That time was the post war forties and fifties; when fun was suddenly allowed, when coffee bars steamed, and skiffle led the way for Bill Haley’s ‘Rock Around the Clock’ – a craze even played on the BBC News. Being into Rockabilly, of course means dressing the part and this lifestyle is one of the few where the

guys spend at least as much time in front of the mirror as the gals! The mile high pompadour or perfectly greased quiff, the pin-up girl tattooed on your arm and a bowling shirt are only the start. Think Elvis, Buddy Holly or more modern influences, like the Stray Cats, and you get the picture. The pleat front, ankle length, peg trousers or turned up jeans draw attention to the shoes. Black and white Creepers (a.k.a. Brothel Creepers) are still the favourite for an authentic Rockabilly look. Let the bowling shirt’s collar sit out over your sport coat lapel and finish off with a skinny tie. Or be a tough guy with a leather jacket, like ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ James Dean.

Then as now, it’s the music that the Rockabilly scene centres around: music plus clothes and cars of course. Get ready, flirt your skirts, or don your drapes, and boys and girls come out to play. The fashion goes from factory practical to dance hall dreams and everyone can find colours styles to suit their mood. Shops and websites now cater to every retro and rockabilly whim, selling petticoats to pin-ups, jukeboxes to jeans.

Pastel colours were very popular in the original Rockabilly style, but you can just as easily indulge in a completely black look like Johnny Cash. So what’s in it for the dolls? Apart from that good looking rebel to hold on to! Let’s see, there are the halter dresses with sweet-heart necklines, full circle skirts and ruffling petticoats, high waist pencil skirts, cardigan sweaters, sweater sets or full gathered skirts in floral prints or bright solid colours. Then there are high-waisted, slim, ankle-length trousers (cigarette pants), Capri pants or pedal pushers (still slim and tapering to just below the knee) and men’s striped dress shirts (roll up the sleeves and tie a knot in the front). When it comes to shoes, look for flat retro pumps or saddle shoes, maybe worn with bobby socks, or ‘Converse All Stars’ baseball shoes or boots. If you prefer a high heel, find ‘Mary Jane’ platform shoes, slingback peeptoes, pointy toe heels or more comfortable wedges. Accessorise with tattoo-inspired necklaces, leopard print or hounds-tooth purses, headbands, hairnets, and pretty hair clips, slides and flowers. Rockabilly symbols you see again and again are anchors, swallows, hearts and stars. The makeup mainly consists of a good, light foundation (I would recommend a liquid foundation with a transparent finishing powder), a fairly heavy black eyeliner on the top eyelids (that can be enhanced by dense false lashes) and a dramatic red lipstick. Add a tiny bit of blusher and you are ready to go. The easiest hairstyle for girls is a high ponytail with a quiff at the front. All the other styles for the ladies are

Dance of passion spark of desire

A

dance often starts with the most timid and faltering of steps, leading to bashful, tentative undulations, before finally gliding into a giddiness of rhythm and flamboyance. So it is with the dance of passion. The dance of passion starts, always, with a tiny spark that must be noticed by a possible partner lest it cool and disappear, never to be seen again. All around us these sparks scatter and extinguish, seldom noticed or fanned to glow and warm into something more promising and exciting. Tonight is promised to be a gala event in a prominent gallery attended by the finest sort London has to offer. An event so highbrow that mere designer labels are not allowed in the door. Here, there is only one of anything and there are no labels. High society wafts through the evening rain, sheltered beneath umbrellas wielded by handsome young men in uniforms. Coats and hats are surrendered to a bevy of young women, all strikingly dressed in scarlet satin, low-cut dresses, who swiftly check the furs and cashmeres beyond a nearby door, returning with tiny, paper tickets. The wealthy and exclusive think this party is all about them as they prance and pose for one another’s admiration. Plumed peacocks fanning their tails and screeching with laughter from dim haunts in the hall. However, a more curious and interesting story is about to unfold, all but unnoticed, in their presence. The assembly begins to gather in one of the galleries, packing it wall-to-wall and anticipating the fashion show that is soon to begin which heralds all the latest, reinvented fashions for those who can afford them. If you’ve been around since the seventies, you’ve seen it all before. Ironically, the only ones likely to ever don these sensationally expensive garments are the young

models displaying them with such aplomb on the catwalk. The evening mellows and both the guests and the staff begin to relax, now weaving between each other with a fluid comfort, lubricated by liberal toasts of the host’s champagne and gourmet hors d’oeuvres. A small group of young women, matching in their low-cut, satin dresses, slips behind the crowd, hoping for a glimpse of the show that, for others, is invitation only. They whisper and giggle quietly among themselves, eluding their tasks just for the moment. All eyes are expectantly on the catwalk. The music blasts out in a sudden assault, an unmistakable beat announcing the strutting arrival of a woman confidently marching out of hiding, held high and balancing precariously on her stiletto heels and fluttering in a dress that one would expect on the coast of the Med but certainly not in rainy London. She makes her way down the catwalk, stabbing her heel into the floor with each step and snaking her lithe body. Her smile is flawless and yet her gaze is empty as she performs her well-practised routine. She stops halfway, turns one way, then the other, and resumes her march to the end. Once again, she stops, turns this way and that, before returning from whence she came. The act is repeated by several more women, each wearing something more audacious than the one before. And each with an empty gaze and a smile for no one. The pounding beat continues and a parade of young men with just enough stubble to roughen their faces take the place of the women to model curious creations with precise and equally vacant expressions. The young maidens in red are, however, fascinated and their attention quivers between watching the young men and talking excitedly among themselves. It’s at this moment I notice something different about the

model on the catwalk – his eyes are focused sharply as he makes his turn. He hesitates just a little too long and his smile is carefully aimed. I turn in time to see a young maiden blush, turn her head, and quickly adjust her neckline to hide the lace of her bra and her creamy skin. I realise that the view from the catwalk must have been as alluring as it was, no doubt, intended. The model turns abruptly and struts back through the curtains. As he disappears, the women huddle and chatter in hushed, excited voices.

There is no question as to who attracted his attention and she is busy preening her hair and smoothing her dress over her curves for his return. Her friends fuss like ladies in waiting. The disappointment as each man – wrong man – emerges in a new suit of clothes is palpable. The vigil is finally rewarded as the young man she seeks confidently steps out one last time. As he makes his first turn, two gazes lock and the sparks are unmistakably fanned. His second turn, upon returning, reveals his fire and these two are well into the dance of passion. His step is livelier, with a bit of a swagger and she is glowing and yet demure. Again, as he disappears, the women turn toward one another and excitedly talk. The gallery is rapidly emptying. Guests are saying their good-byes, gathering their coats, and leaving the colourful brightness of the galleries to be absorbed once again into the cold, misty darkness of a London night. As I wait to collect my own overcoat, I spy the young man, now dressed in something more ordinary, standing unobtrusively in a darkened doorway. His eyes are intent on the young maiden as she hurriedly returns coats and handbags to impatient guests. Still, she manages to peek up from time to time, smile coquettishly, and steal a glance at her handsome admirer. There is no hunky, uniformed man with an umbrella waiting as a young model and his maiden exit the tall doors into the night, but they don’t notice. She wriggles her body up next to his and his arm settles into the curve of her waist. Her head rests lightly, gracefully upon his shoulder as they walk along the darkened pavement. It is the dance of passion. Van Scoyoc •by Stephen author of the book series Closet Desire

An internationally patented prostate (or male G-spot) stimulator, the Aneros uses no batteries or electronically induced vibrations, but transforms the body’s own energy into amazing sensations. The mechanism is simple, but extremely effective. Once in place, the Aneros uses the anal sphincter’s natural contractions to stimulate the prostate and perineum, meaning that the user does not have to use it manually. That’s right, no hands! The orgasms that a man can achieve with the Aneros are so earth-shattering they have been named ‘Super-Os’ by our enthusiasts. Characterised by pleasure starting from the lower abdomen, a Super-O awashes the entire body in a state of bliss. You do not ejaculate during a Super-O, so no ‘recharging’ or ‘time out’ period is needed. Through practice, you can enjoy these orgasms, one after another during sessions of an hour or more. Try using the Aneros during partner sex to enhance your performance and create more intense and satisfying orgasms. Different designs from around £30 to £50 at Aneros

ex can be the most intimate joy you ever share, and the most exhilarating high you ever experience. But the after effects of contracting a sexually transmitted infection (STI) might affect you for the rest of your life. So use a little knowledge, a little latex and a little lube to keep you safe. According to the Health Protection Agency, there were 482,696 new diagnoses of STIs in GUM clinics in the UK in 2009, continuing the upwards trend of the last decade. More testing, with the roll out of the National Chlamydia Screening Programme for the under 25s, and more sensitive diagnostic tests for other STIs, mean the health clinics are picking up more infections, but the rise may also be due to more people having unsafe sex. The figures are shocking – because STIs are easily preventable.

S

•As many as 70% of women and 50% of men who have an STI don’t show any symptoms. •As many as one in ten people under 25 may be infected with chlamydia – the most common, yet easily curable STI. •At least one in four people who are HIV + are unaware that they are infected. •You don’t have to have penetrative sex to get an infection. Herpes, gonorrhea, chlamydia and HIV can all be transmitted during oral sex. STIs are more prevalent in younger age groups because of their greater number of partners, and because they are failing to practise safer sex. Despite making up only 12% of the population, young adults (aged 16 to 24) account for half of all STI diagnoses.

Men who have sex with men are also disproportionately affected, but there has been a rise in diagnoses across all adult age groups. New regional statistical information shows that infection rates are highest in urban areas – especially those of high deprivation. But leaving particulars aside, the blunt message is that chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes, genital warts and syphilis (once thought eradicated in UK) are all on the rise. Chlamydia, the ‘silent’ infection, now the UK’s most common STI, can lead to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) and infertility. More than 114,500 new cases were diagnosed in 2009, but because chlamydia is often symptomless, many more people will be carrying the infection without knowing it. Experts estimate three quarters of people infected with chlamydia are unaware of it and are not receiving vital treatment. Genital warts, caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) is still the most common viral STI, with 91,257 new diagnoses in 2009.

•Buy condoms before you travel abroad – you may have trouble finding them, or asking for them at your destination. •For oral sex, a condom will prevent many STIs – try flavoured ones, they taste better. •Always use water-based or silicone-based lubes with latex condoms. For anal sex especially, use plenty of extra lubricant with your condom to prevent it tearing.

•Oil-based lubes damage latex condoms (and also

diaphragms). Some medicated creams for thrush are oilbased which can affect condoms’ effectiveness.

•Gel-charge your condom – Put a drop of lubricant in the tip of the condom before putting it on for a smoother ride! •Hold the condom’s tip to squeeze out air as you roll it on. Any air trapped at the tip can cause the condom to burst. •During prolonged sex, change your condom after 30 minutes before it wears out! •If you are allergic to latex/rubber try a non-latex condom or the female condom ‘Femidom’ which is made of polyurethane plastic. (Never use a female and a male condom together – friction may damage them.)

Some strains of this virus are associated with cervical cancer. An infected person may have no symptoms of infection, but can still transmit the virus unknowingly. And 4224 people were diagnosed HIV+ last year. Health Protection Agency advice for men who have sex with men (the highest risk group) is to take an HIV test annually and each time they believe themselves to have been at risk of infection. The good news is that wearing a condom every time you have sex will protect you, and condoms just get more and more sophisticated. Safer, yet thinner and extra-lubricated, they feel like a second skin and can be flavoured, textured or extra large to suit your needs.

and consensual

hemistry plays a major role in sado masochism (SM). In the hands of an experienced ‘top’, using perhaps a whip, nipple clamps and hot wax, a ‘bottom’ can experience intense pleasure through the gradual intensifying of pain, as their body creates endorphins – natural painkillers many times more powerful than morphine. The ‘endorphine high’, a sensation of intoxication, allows the bottom to perceive pain differently. Some people can experience orgasm just from being flogged, or have their most intense orgasms fuelled by the endorphins in their system. So now you know. Always keep play safe, sane and consensual. DO NOT attempt to administer or receive pain before researching this complex subject thoroughly. Editrice

Outsiders

“Disabled people make the best lovers because we are skilled at asking for what we want, and ingenious at finding ways around insurmountable problems.” Outsiders Motto utsiders is a club for people with physical and social disabilities to make new friends and find partners. We have been running for 31 years, since 1979. Members love belonging to a club where their sexuality is accepted and they can relax and be themselves. It is hard for most of us to imagine losing our sight, and our marriage breaking up as a result. It is awful to picture your childhood as a person who wobbled and could not speak clearly, with parents who were ashamed of you and perhaps abused you, and then to try to make a life Minky Mix, and find love. It is obviously quite Outsiders’ tricky to tell someone you fancy that SuperHeroine, you have an ostomy or catheter. But with her 2010 Erotic Award in Outsiders, this is everyday chat.

O

Outsiders is run by Tuppy Owens together with disabled volunteers who have managed to gain confidence and find understanding friends and partners. We struggle to pay the rent and all the other bills that charities find coming through the letterbox. Somehow, our fragile existence, the stigma of our work photo and worries about our sexual by Ashley openness mean that the government and other funders usually turn down our funding requests. It is therefore amazing that Erotica include us, give us a stall, and encourage us to ask for money through our raffle. Over our 31 years, we have become the world authority on sex and disability. We handle the Sex and Disability Helpline, free of charge, where callers are delighted to at last have found a person who takes their questions seriously. Calls are very varied, from people of all ages. For example, a spinal injured man who can no longer get an erection wonders about inviting another man into the marital bed so his wife can satisfy her stiffy-craving; a woman complains that her husband is so afraid of hurting her disabled body that he hardly dares to touch her; men with spina bifida complain they cannot reach orgasm, and after prostate stimulation is suggested, they call back with triumphant reports! Outsiders also runs the Sexual Health and Disability Alliance to help health professionals with their struggle to deal with sexual issues in their work. Outsiders is creating a tool kit for health professionals who feel uncomfortable bringing up the topic of sex during consultations. Our sister website, tlc-trust.org.uk allows disabled men and women to access responsible sex workers. We are also writing a Sex Book for Blind People. We are pretty busy, considering we do all this work for free, but we love it. This year, the Outsiders Freedom of Information Survey asked local authorities on their views and policies on disabled people being allowed to enjoy a sex life. This hit the headlines and Bel Mooney wrote in the Daily Mail on 18th August 2010:

•TICA

44 ER

“Organisations such as The Outsiders and TLC (Tender Loving Care) do invaluable work to recognise the sexual needs of disabled people, and do what they can to help – campaigning in a pretty forthright way.” We have managed to keep afloat so far by running two fundraising events. The biggest is the Night of the Senses, a huge erotic ball with sexy tents, chambers and salons for every taste imaginable. Our Sensuality Chamber is serenaded by musicians who jam to the love-making. The Ball ripples with laughter and happiness and part of the joy stems from the fact that our guests come from all over the world, and form a grand, outrageous carnival. Some are couples, threesomes and others come alone. Some have physical disabilities and others are a bit socially awkward or shy and only ever venture out of doors for this one event, knowing they will be accepted, their sexual tastes respected. Our other event is the Erotic Awards’ show, Chantilly Lace. The Erotic Awards honour people who work in sex, from academics to strippers and pioneers to sex workers and politicians. Chantilly Lace is a showcase of the performing categories. Both events are in London, the Ball on 27 May 2011 and the Show on 30 March. Please come and see us during your visit to Erotica 2010. On our stand, you can meet the gorgeous celebrity and Erotic Awards winner, Minky Mix who, earlier this year, shared responsibility for winning the battle for people affected by the drug Thalidomide to be paid compensation. The Outsiders stand provides fun and hilarity, discussions on sexual politics and erotic clubbing and, tucked behind the Art Gallery, some peace and quiet. We will have collecting tins for your gifts and Gift Aid forms if you feel strongly you would like to support us in what we do, tax deductible. I cannot tell you how much that would be appreciated.

RELATIONSHIPS

Sacred Sexuality

ohn Secunda, a meditator for more than 20 years, runs Alto Sax Retreat Centre in Essex where he teaches tantra, tantric massage and tantric sexuality. His seminars at Erotica 2010 (see page 10) are designed to give you an insight into how sacred sexuality can make us skilful lovers, and transform our sex lives from bad to good, or from good to ‘mind blowing’. We asked John to tell us more about his work.

J

What is tantra and tantric sex? In the West we tend to think of sex as an act of procreation or as a form of recreation, but it can be about utilising sexual energy as an act of transformation. Tantric sexuality encompasses meditation, breath work, mindfulness (i.e. learning to be fully present in the moment with awareness), authentic relating, exploring and transforming ones boundaries and inhibitions. It also embraces ‘neo tantric’ methods (which are popular with the media) used to achieve full body orgasms, female ejaculation, tantric massage and multiorgasmic men, and for finding a sense of inner peace, promoting healing, or having fun within our sexuality. Who attends your workshops? A diverse mixture of people; individuals and couples who want to explore their sexuality in a safe environment. Individuals who visit us often have difficulties with intimacy, difficulties with orgasm or want to learn how to become an expert lover for their current or future partners; some want to explore polyamory. I work with people who have suffered sexual abuse or rape, who perhaps have had counselling but now need to explore themselves experientially. Tantra offers a way to reconnect with sexual and sensual feelings. Couples might be looking for ways to increase intimacy and love. Sometimes one partner is struggling from a lack of interest in sex while the other partner is going ‘up the wall’ with frustration. Some couples, having experimented with swinging, come to Alto Sax looking for something more intimate or more sensual, which they did not find from swinging. How did you become involved in tantra? It started as a search for deeper meaning in life. In my mid twenties I began meditating to deal with high levels of stress. Once I learnt the art of anapanasati (mindfulness of breathing), my life radically changed – I felt calm and integrated. My sexual energy softened and I learnt the art of ejaculation control. Girlfriends told me that being sexually intimate with me was like being with a sexual healer. All of these experiences were pointing me towards sacred sexuality. After about 10 years of exploring meditation and tantra, including studying in California for two years, I met my partner, Tara. Together we explored tantric sexuality for more than nine years and began teaching as a couple in 2004. Tara is currently on sabbatical and studying to become a sexual counsellor, so at present I work alone or pair up with one of my students during workshops. What does the training involve – to become a practitioner of tantra? It is very rigorous – students have to look deeply within themselves to understand their deep-seated emotions, feelings, desires and motivations. They have to learn to live with complete honesty and

integrity, and to iron out any problems with their own sexuality. Finally they learn the art of sharing tantra with others – using specialist breathing techniques, tantric massage, conducting group work, interviewing clients and undertaking detailed questionnaires, etc. My training process lasts around three months and is spread over 15 teaching and experiential days including lots of homework. Tell us about Alto Sax Retreat Centre? It is based in a beautiful medieval manor house near Stansted Airport in Essex. It is charming, very private and oozes a sense of relaxation and peace. The large dining room overlooks a lake and the sun sets over the dining area and patio. There is a 40 foot swimming pool, hot tub and a huge library of books and dvds on sacred sexuality – it is a perfect place to discover the wonders of sacred sexuality. What can people expect when they come to learn tantra? We spend a lot of time building trust to enable people to speak and share openly, so that profound healing, learning and insight can evolve. Most of our work is in small groups or one on one with a couple or an individual and is largely experiential in nature – there is some dialogue but mostly it is about getting away from our ‘thinking minds’ and letting our creativity, and intuition unfold and break free. During fun exercises we use music, sound, colour, smell and sense deprivation. I have witnessed people coming to orgasm with the use of ice alone, while blindfolded. Participants are encouraged to go on a musical journey, where lack of sight can trigger strong imagery in their minds eye or produce an experience of deep sensuality – often due to feeling vulnerable but safe at the same time! Getting people to relax totally can help them have deeper, often cathartic or healing experiences. I use the techniques of biofeedback, to help people to communicate with themselves and each other at a deeper level, in turn helping to restore intimacy, sensuality and love. My teaching combines sensuality and sexuality with mindfulness – a technique that the Buddha used when he achieved enlightenment over 2500 years ago. The techniques I use also come from tantric practices used in India, China, Japan and Tibet, and I incorporate modern ideas by keeping up with research from around the world. Last words of wisdom for those in struggling relationships? If you can look at your deepest desires (not fantasies), discover your needs and those of your partner and honestly communicate them, you might still stay with the person you once loved or if you are single, learn to really love yourself so that you become more attractive to potential partners. The fundamental teaching of tantra is about being in the ‘here and now’, living life fully and being in the ‘present moment’, not thinking of the past or the future. When we can do this, or even glimpse it, our sex lives can and will be transformed. Alto Sax Retreat Centre specialises in Tantric and Sacred Sexuality for couples and individuals and holds residential and one-day courses in small groups and on a one to one basis. The centre also trains students to become practitioners of Tantra and Tantric massage.

Erotica provides a rare chance to meet photographers and artists face to face, quiz them about their techniques, and immerse yourself in their visions. This year we have chosen to feature two new artists: Penelope Rose and Mark Roberts; artists with very different approaches to erotic, figurative work. And, of course, we are delighted to welcome back the experienced hands of Paul Ballard and Ken Clarke – whom I’m sure you will agree have perfected the art of drawing and casting the female bottom. These four artists, and many in The Gallery, are members of The Guild of Erotic Artists. All undertake private commissions.

on sh•w The EBox Series 1 is a sex toy that stimulates with electrical pulses (think ‘tens’ machine). Connect an electrode to the unit to experience sensations which can include tingling, buzzing, throbbing, burning and prickling. The Veriprobe (shown below) designed to be inserted into the vagina, was originally developed for medical use to help re-educate the pelvic floor muscles. The Series 1 provides the power – you control the levels of pulsation and intensity. A sophisticated digital timing system operates in three modes to offer a range of pleasurable sensations: Burst (a burst of pulses), Continuous (a continuous stream of micro pulses) and Manual mode (the unit only responds when the Fire button is pressed). Some people find the continuous mode drives them wild, others prefer the hard thrust of the pulse burst. Check E-Stim Systems, Stand J6 for a unit that responds to music and voice, and a range of insertible and surface Safety Note! Use strictly in accordance with manufacturer’s guidelines. Do not use electric stimulation play toys if you have a heart condition or are pregnant. Not recommended for use with body piercing. Use only below the waist (never across the hands or chest).
