Forget about Valentine's Day. Mark Feb. 19 in your calendar. It's important, especially if you're one of those who's more likely to get off from whips and ball gags than a box of milk chocolates.

Starting Thursday, Kink University will host a four-day symposium, teaching the curious-minded about all things fetish. Specifically, the classes will teach you the techniques of the various BDSM scenes shown in 50 Shades of Grey, the highly anticipated kink flick that will be out in theaters next week. Dubbed" The 50 Skills of Grey," the live classes will give you hands-on training in basic bondage, spanking, caning, tying, orgasm control, etc. They'll even teach you about designing your own red room of pain!

The erotic symposium will start with a one-hour Introduction to BDSM on Thursday, Feb. 19. The next four sessions will cover all 50 BDSM techniques, including dominance, submission, and impact play. The symposium will conclude on Sunday, Feb. 22 with a workshop in Adventure Scenes and Abduction Play.

If you like what you learned, you can come back for more: There are workshops on elevator sex, contracts, dirty talk and coming out kinky on dates.

"For all Fifty Shades of Grey lacks in BDSM authenticity and consent, it makes up for in its numerous 'teachable moments' that will let sex educators help kink-curious people, with workshops like the 50SkillsofGrey.com symposium,” says Danarama, head of Kink University.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
