FLINT — Bootblacking is the art and craft of caring for leather items, including boots, shoes, jackets, vests, pants, chaps and leather toys. Bootblacking is different from shoe shining because bootblacks recognize and understand the importance, meaning and history that the leather items often have for the wearer. It can also be an erotic expression of service, submission or dominance and can involve elements of sado-masochistic play. We will learn the basic technical skills required to take care of leather items and how to build a basic kit of supplies. We will also talk about some of the ways to incorporate bootblack play into your scenes. There will be a stunt top for demo purposes and much fun will be had by all!
This class will be taught by vegasaurus_rex
Elisa is your current 2017 International Ms. Bootblack, 2016 Great Lakes Bootblack, was the 2015 Michigan Community Bootblack and is a founder and co-host of the Detroit Area Bootblacks’ Laboratory (DABBL). She is active in the Michigan Band of Brothers, a gender-inclusive titleholder support organization and the Board of Education, a kinky, pansexual educational organization in metro Detroit. She is a member of their Board of Directors and was the 2015-2016 Education Chair. She is a co-hostess of Fevered Nights, an enticingly sensual monthly play and sex party that is only serious about not being serious.
She is a radical sexual outlaw with a disdain for hierarchy who could be best described as a contrarian leather anarchist. She is a body positive polyamorous feminist. She is also a fuzzy femme piglet who demands authentic and intimate relationships that involve degradation, objectification and lots of pain, done with love and affection.

Flint Educational Munch
This is a group dedicated to serving BDSM lifestylers and kinksters in Michigan through education and community service.
Etiquette for this Munch
Must be over 18. If you’re over 100 and still coming to munches, you must be OK with being my hero.
It is OK to go by your screen name only. One does not ask “is that your real name” better to ask “how would you like me to address you”.
This is low protocol, you are not expected to address others as Master or Mistress. (Unless that is apart of your personal relationship, please be discreet in doing so.) Sir and Ma’am are still polite ways to address people you do not know, but better to ask “Sir/Ma’am, how would you like me to address you?”.
If you’re a submissive, you’re not expected to be anything but courteous to anyone, unless you’ve expressly agreed to do so. If you’re a dominant, the only submissive you have a right to expect anything other than courtesy from is YOUR submissive. Don’t expect someone who is not employed by the establishment to fetch you a drink and submissives don’t feel compelled to offer to fetch anyone else a drink, unless you truly want to do so.
Be sure you have consent before touching anyone.
This is not a trolling ground for “fresh meat”. Do not treat it as such.
No fetish wear. Keep all your naughty bits covered. We don’t want to scare the vanillas.
We have a private room so we can discuss topics openly without offending the other patrons. However; even though the bar staff understands we are a kinky group talking about kinky topics, it’s not OK to involve the wait staff in our discussions. Please be discreet when they’re in the room.
Do Not Flirt With The Staff! Do not involve them with our conversation. Do not ask their opinions about kinky topics. They are there for one thing, to make a living.
This is NOT a play party, do not bring your toys, punish your partner or demonstrate other behavior that will call inappropriate attention to our group; but light D/s is always fun and in fashion. Please respect the Non-D/s patrons of this establishment with your actions and words by being discreet.
Do not take pictures or videos of others in our private room. You will be banned.
Everyone in attendance is responsible for placing their own orders and handling their own tabs.
If anyone makes you feel uncomfortable or does something inappropriate, please inform a host right away.
