We are excited to host
Lord Allen aka pup juniper
Lord Allen/ pup juniper (they/them) is a budding BDSM educator and podcast host on The Kinky Tavern. Allen believes that Leather, kink, BDSM, and education in general should be more accessible and a safe space for all who wish to participate. “Leather started as activism and that is the heart of Leather.”
Through their classes and through other educational channels such as the podcast, they aspire to influence the accessibility of the community and the education provided within it, educating community leaders and participants on the intricacies of neurodivergence, kink, BDSM, Leather, and sex in a more accessible way. “We all must be accountable and try to make this community a better place”
Allen is transgender, nonbinary, asexual, and polyamorous; currently living with their nesting partner and handler, Roskoe, and long distance with their Princexx, Mx. Dizzy, also a host of The Kinky Tavern. In kink, they follow RACK (Risk Aware Consensual Kink) and believe that “kink doesn't always have to be serious, it can also be very fun and playful.” Allen enjoys their own play as a hellhound, service submissive, bootblack, and sadist, using plain language to communicate in-scene instead of safewords.
Who will be presenting:
How to talk to your autistic submissive
By and large many participants in the kink and BDSM scene fall anywhere in the autism spectrum. This is especially true for those who are submissive and on the right side of the slash, which often means that negotiating and sustaining a dynamic with an autistic submissive manifests very differently than what is illustrated in fantasy. In this class, Allen guides attendees through negotiations and setting up dynamic relationships for success with autistic submissives. Topics addressed will include comfort and care, implementing direct communication, and providing support through nonverbal and socially anxious periods. While this class may be most beneficial to those who are autistic and/or are in dynamics with autistic people, anyone with an interest is strongly welcomed and encouraged to attend!
