Negotiations 101 with TC

The art of conversation between two parties to facilitate a play scene and come to an agreement.

Scare Tactics: Diving Deep into Fear Play with Doc Bubbles and KitKat Ann

Fear is one of the most basic, primal emotions in the human psyche. So what do we kinksters do with such an instinct?

Why, we poke at it, of course!

In this class, Doctor Bubbles and kitkatann will dive into the science of fear and explore the many ways to leverage it into your play. With jump scares, mind fucks, and even following through on the slow burn of dread, a Top can easily make their Bottom feel like they are in imminent danger while keeping the scene in relative safety. This is a class with audience participation, so be prepared to get some hands-on experience on how to crank up the adrenaline in your next scene!

Gender: Exploring the Spectrum with Maverick

A brief look into gender and how to effectively navigate with those under the trans umbrella. We will have an open discussion and dialogue involving terms, negotiation, and relationship dynamics.

Intentional Relationship Design with Lee Harrington

Not all relationships begin with roses and chocolates – some begin with long dialogues and conscious construction. In this life-share and technique exploration, Lee will be discussing how he and Ms. Cenna created their relationship, from its unexpected start to where it stands today – two powerful individuals sharing layers of complex D/s and a romantic partnership as well. What tools might you find useful to borrow from? What tools have you used to consciously craft your relationship dynamic? What are some things that Lee, and you, have learned from crafting both consciously designed relationships and those that we have stumbled into? Love comes in many forms, and sometimes it comes wrapped in pages upon pages of Google Docs, long analytical discussions, and some kinky and sexy play as well.


Each year at Beyond Vanilla, you are able to "handle the merchandise" from our vendors.  Due to COVID, this year, we invite you to "ogle the merchandise" by visiting the websites of our featured vendors.  A specific shout-out to our three BV Online Sponsors:  NLA-Dallas, The Hidden Door and F/R Consulting!

Doc Bubbles & KitKat Ann

Doctor Bubbles and KitKat Ann met at Beyond Vanilla in 2018, and found a kindred spirit in each other. Since then, they have gone from playmates to close friends, and eventually established an M/s dynamic and romantic partnership together. Their dynamic is based on mutual respect and trust, self improvement, a dedication to increasing knowledge, and helping improve the world around them.


Maverick is the inaugural Mx. Great Plains Olympus Leather 2019. They are honored to be the starting block for an inclusive title that honors those who live outside a gender binary. Maverick is a cigar slut, and well slut in general, bottom to ouchy devises, and loves getting roughed up by bootblacks. Their passion is educating on gender and encouraging those who are exploring their own gender.
