Sexual Improv: Kink on the Fly Workshop with Amberly Rothfield

https_%2F%2Fcdn.evbuc.com%2Fimages%2F53067086%2F179821653564%2F1%2Foriginal.jpg

Adult industry veteran Amberly Rothfield returns to San Francisco to teach as part of Kink.com's educational series. This is the second time Rothfield will be teaching at Kink's Armory Tours.

 

San Francisco, CA – If a lover asks for dirty talk, but your tongue is left dry and fumbling for words…this can slaughter a sensual mood! After a packed workshop on how to talk dirty like a phone sex operator, adult industry veteran and educator Amberly Rothfield returns to San Francisco for her second workshop at Kink.com's headquarters. For her upcoming class, Sexual Improv: Kink on the Fly, Rothfield is teaching how to be spontaneous in the sack verbally. Utilizing all of the senses, when it is time to get down is extremely important for those mind-blowing orgasms that we are always chasing.

“This class is unique in that it is audience directed! The audience chooses what my scene would look like,” says Rothfield, a 13-year veteran of the phone sex industry and dirty talk extraordinaire. “It is then my job to construct a sexual conversation from thin air. Think Mad Libs for kink. Doing this several times, I begin to show my process of keeping it sexy but keeping it fresh.”

The audience is implored to join in and make the scene as crazy as possible for Rothfield. Using a tinge of humor to take the fear out of smutty speech, she strives to keep the ambiance airy, informative and most of all, fun. The audio portion of sex doesn’t have to be just moans or groans but also what helps set that mental scene which catapults a play session. Being as sex is usually pretty much never scripted, this means having the skill set to continue with the scene with a strong presence can only heighten the pleasure for you and your partner.

“Being able to partner again with Kink.com is not only an honor but unbelievable,” added Rothfield. “Working with them last time was so easy, professional and their platform is so wide-reaching! I hope to continue being able to offer workshops on how to work one’s voice into play settings effectively.”

The class will be held in San Francisco at The Armory Club on December 27,2018. Class does start at 7pm and goes to 9pm by a meet and greet following immediately after!

LOS ANGELES, CA - Grooby’s Marketing and Editorial Director Kristel Penn snagged two coveted XBIZ Industry Exec Award nominations this week.


“It’s an honor not only be nominated for an XBIZ Industry Exec Award, but to be nominated in two categories that hold such personal significance to me,” said Kristel Penn. “In both categories, my name is listed amongst people who are doing such important work in our industry and who I’ve long admired since I started my career over ten years ago. Win or lose, I am incredibly grateful to be recognized for my work and to share this nomination with so many titans of our industry.”

Penn is currently nominated for Community Figure of the Year and WIA Woman of the Year. Winners will be announced at the upcoming 2019 XBIZ LA Show at the Andaz Hotel.

Most recently, she enrolled in an MA in Counseling program with the long-term goal of helping create safe and competent mental health services to those in the adult industry.


“Mental health awareness is a topic that has long been part of my advocacy work on a personal and professional level,” Penn added. “I want to use my life experiences, which includes both my privilege and marginalization, to help destigmatize the adult industry and help provide competent mental health resources for our community. I understand the great responsibility of having a goal like this, which is why I chose to enroll in a counseling program this year. I wanted to ensure that anything I’d potentially implement would be competent, safe, and sustainable.”

Siouxsie Q’s Mermaid Musical “Fish Girl” Swims North to Portland

Mermaid Piggy Tub wm-2-41.jpg

PORTLAND, OR - Following successful runs in New York City and Los Angeles, the multi-talented Siouxsie Q is heading to Portland next month to perform her critically acclaimed mermaid musical, Fish Girl. The upcoming production hits the stage as part of the Come Inside Festival that runs from October 4-7, 2018.

“I've been working on this play throughout my entire career in the adult industry, the first songs came to me nearly the same week I first had sex for money,” explains Siouxsie Q. “While the songs and the story have stayed essentially the same, the nuances of the work has grown by leaps and bounds as my career and my relationship to the sex industry has evolved.”

Described by BroadwayWorld.com as “on the cutting edge of fantasy,” “Fish Girl” is the poignant and entertaining story of an enchanted mermaid plucked from the sea and doomed to sing for her supper. This unconventional fairy tale sings the story of a lovestruck tourist who falls into the deep end when he meets the “girl” of his dreams. The original production is a fully-realized dream on stage created by Siouxsie Q and Sean Andries. Written and performed from the perspective of a sex worker and the one who loves her, “Fish Girl” serves as an allegory for our current state of affairs and exposes the deeply personal stakes of sexual politics.

“We workshopped and premiered the show at Portland's Fertile Grounds Festival in 2012, and we are so pleased to bring this re-vamped version back to where it was born,” explains Q. “Additionally, we have been blessed with the opportunity to collaborate with my longtime friend, Penthouse Pet, and fellow member of the APAC Board of Directors, Olive Glass, who has released a brand new set of illustrations that will be premiered on an antique slide projector as part of the show.”

“Fish Girl” received the “Best of The Fest” Award at the 2013 San Francisco Fringe and hailed praise from outlets like the San Francisco Chronicle and SF Weekly. The show will be held at the Coho Theater on from October 4-7. Pre-sale tickets can be purchased at this link: https://www.merctickets.com/events/57360605/fish-girl-oct-4-7
