Join us for a panel discussion exploring the role of kinky "third spaces," our own history, trends in the local and national kink scene, and where we think things are going.
Wicked Grounds holds a unique vantage point in kink. For thirteen years, we've served as a critical crossroads where discussions and cross-pollination between various kink and leather groups can happen.
Thousands of classes and munches, dozens of art shows, a wee bit of porn, several memorials, one wedding, and several personal epiphanies later, we're still your home for coffee, kink, and community.
Join us for a panel discussion exploring the role of kinky "third spaces," our own history, trends in the local and national kink scene, and where we think things are going. We will share a few stories from our own vantage points at the Grounds, and have plenty of time for Q&A.
Ryan Psychokitty and Miriam Green are both BDSM & kink educators in the SF Bay Area. Ryan founded Wicked Grounds in 2009 and was the primary owner until 2014, and Mir has owned Wicked Grounds (and later Wicked Grounds Annex) from 2014 onward.
Jaxxie Guillotine was one of the first baristas hired on Mir's team way back in 2014, was a producer of our Kinky, Queer Revolution podcast, and otherwise does lots of cool media stuff to get our kink education & community building out there, everywhere.
This hybrid event is a fundraiser to keep Wicked Grounds going long into the future. Sliding scale tickets are available from $13 - $1300 dollars at the level of your comfort. ($25 suggested.)
This class will be taught out of the Wicked Grounds Annex, and will simultaneously be offered as a live, online class through Zoom. You may choose to attend in person at the Wicked Grounds Annex in San Francisco, or online from anywhere in the world!
In SF, this class will be held in the Wicked Grounds Annex. Please note that stairs at the front door are the only means of ingress and egress to the space. Proof of COVID vaccination and masking are both required for all participants. We recommend arriving 10 minutes before the class start time for check in; late check-ins may require you to have vaccination and ticketing verified next door at Wicked Grounds Cafe & Boutique before entry.
Please do not attend in person if you have any respiratory symptoms whatsoever. Anyone displaying signs of respiratory symptoms may be asked to leave, regardless of vaccination status.
Or, attend online anywhere via Zoom! To participate, you will need to download the free, basic version of the Zoom app before the class. This class will not be recorded and is not available for later viewing. Zoom now provides closed captioning which will be available for this event.
