Guilty Pleasures Stage Show

Each year the Guilty Pleasures Stage Show performs hundreds of audience-participation driven scenes for the attendees of TRAUMA. Those who volunteer to be consenting and active participants in sadomasochistic activities, as a part of the performance experience, have an opportunity to learn about various kinky forms of play.

The stage show started out as a live and interactive BDSM performance at a Goth industrial night club located in Columbus, Ohio known as Outland, and is purely volunteer driven. To fulfill the show’s core value that “an educated community is a safer community,” the volunteers serve as resources and mentors to promote active-consent based communication and opportunities to share knowledge with other explores of kink activities.

Kedi

Kedi’s decades of study of movement arts inform his approach to kink and sexuality. He sees the consensual and responsible practice of bondage and sadomasochism as a form of yoga or moving meditation, in which heightened states of awareness can lead to transcendent moments of connection and intimacy. His ultimate goal is to create a more open-minded and sex-positive society through improved communication, more satisfying relationships, and skillful use of the erotic arts. You can find his writings and photography on his website, KediRope.com.

At the foundation of any song is the “version”, a musical experience without vocals or lyricism. Selecta Version First prioritizes that core rhythm, providing a blank canvas of drums, bass, and space. To move with this rhythm is to find oneness with the singular, driving force of the tribal drum.

Samael and Lilith

Samael and Lilith are dominant leaning switches that enjoy playing in the mind. Sensations inevitably transform mental states. Through these transformations we morph our perception and interpretation of the world around us. We use kink as a play space to free our bodies and expand our minds.
