Pat Foster – 33 years old, plenty of determination and self-control and unprecedented technic levels Pat Foster's first approach with the ropes is in 2004 when he moves to Rome and becomes a member of the BDSM community there.

A bottom at first, he starts immediately to live his passion for bondage in public as well as in private, modeling during several play parties and evenings and performing in bondage sessions with MaestroBD who will tutor and follow him everywhere.

He also partecipated as a model for the very first italian bondage classes held in the capital.

In 2010 Pat starts working on SelfBondage, after a meeting with other self-bondager at BoundCon in Munich, practicing especially with self-suspension which will become a daily practice in 2012.

Together with bondage and and BDSM Pat also studies alternative culture and body expression through hook suspension and body decoration.

He's one of the founding members of the first BDSM association for the hetero community.




Polyamory: an alternative way of living relationships

The goal of this workshop is to understand what polyamory is, how it is possible to live relationships that reject exclusivity as a foundational requirement, and to analyze the two key principles of polyamory: ethics and consent. After an initial briefing, the workshop will be conducted in a horizontal fashion, where the lecturer's role will be to facilitate and coordinate the exchange between participants who, if they so wish, can bring their own personal contribution. Not a static class, therefore, but kind of a lab for growth and with the focus on constant interaction. No previous knowledge is required to take part in this workshop, and the class is open to long-standing polyamorous people, to people navigating their first experiences, and to all those who are eager to learn more.



Polyamory and BDSM: contaminations

We often observe that some BDSMers are also polyamorous people.

What are the points of contact between polyamory and BDSM?

What are the communication protocols that we use in BDSM relationships that could potentially be useful in a polyamorous setting? How can BDSM family structures be framed within polyamory?

The lecturer will first talk about the key concepts; then we will open a collective discussion that will enrich, feed and strengthen the topics under consideration with the contribution of those who want to expose their ideas or their experience in their own lives.

Once again, a workshop that will be conducted with focus on dynamic interaction.

No previous knowledge is required to take part in this workshop, although it is desirable and useful to have taken part in the “Polyamory: an alternative way of living relationships” workshop; the class is open to long-standing polyamorous people and/or BDSMers, to people navigating their first experiences, and to all those who are eager to learn more.
