I am still recouperating from Open SF and all the amazing moments I had, witnessed, and luxuriated in. It is a true testament to a growing community that even with all the hard topics raised we were able to look at them, and ourselves with a critical but compassionate eye.
If you attended my presentation, The Intimacy of Sacred Kink, and wish to talk further, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I try to check that on a regular basis. I look forward to continuing the conversation and expect to see a lot of posts in the next couple of days about questions that the presentation brought up for me. Which I will admit is one of the most amazing things that happens whenever I stand up to talk to people about what I do; it always ends up bringing up and showing me new avenues to explore and ponder and try, so thank you for giving me the opportunity to walk my path, together. You all inspire me.
With deepest and sincerest gratitude to Pepper, the staff, volunteers, and all attached to Open SF, and to you, the attendees. Without you, I would’ve just been talking to myself. I do that enough as it is.
Sacred Profanity: taboo. That which is both sacred and profane. Something so special, so important to set aside for some greater purpose that it is easier to consider it dirty and to want no part of it than to actually cherish or acknowledge its importance in our lives.
That’s me. *grins* In a way, that’s all of us. That’s what I’m here to do. As an Ordealist and Worker for Spirit I become that object. I let myself be defiled in order to make it possible for you to become your greater Self.
Whether it’s through sexwork, Ordeal, ritual, or just in having a quick conversation with me, I’m here to help you foster and create the connection. No more or less.
This may be a fairly lofty ideal but I think if we are given all opportunities to manifest the work we are meant to do in this world, than this is mine.
