The unique combination of years of wrestling, martial arts, and good, wholesome take-down fun in the BDSM community has inspired the Capt. to spread this approach to others.

Working in these extreme realms has allowed him to explore many boundaries for himself as well as many others in the community.
Sacred Body Mod: There is beauty and power in intentionally changing the way one is perceived or seen. Gordon is known for creating and engaging in personal transformation through various forms of changing perceptions of the self, and can share professional experiences with various forms of temporary, long term, and permanent sacred body modifications. A great workshop/discussion for people who are considering
some form of modification, people who have modified their body in some way, or
those who are interested in the practice.
What's the Point? Play-Piercing Ritual: (Limited to 20 participants, unlimited support people.) We have been trained from birth to seek comfort and prevent harm from coming to our bodies; but when we do so, we miss the opportunity to use our bodies to take our spirits to another place. What’s the Point? Allows us to explore a new relationship with our bodies. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to receive one small temporary piercing as part of a short ritual of self-exploration.
Artist's Scene: Are you tired of the same old tie-‘em-up-and-flog-‘em routine? Take your play scenes from the merely mundane to the heights of artistic fantasy. We will discuss the basics of building an artist’s scene—story line, costuming, props, improvisation—for play that can be beautiful, theatrical, ritual, fearsome, or even silly. Bring your crazy ideas, costumes, or props. By the end of this workshop, we’ll have created a scene that brings out your inner artist.
