CIPEX Rough Body Play March BDSM Educational Munch

“ Rough Comes to Town”

CIPEX BDSM Educational Munch Event by Roughinamorato

By Richjod.

Find a connection with your BDSM extreme rough play with CIPEX educational event, Saturday, March 7th in Des Moines, Iowa. In keeping with the Mischief in May theme of extreme edge play CIPEX is excited to be bringing an extreme rough body player, Roughinamorato. Roughinamorato will be presenting, Violent “Displays of Affection: Connection and Intimacy through Rough Body Play”. As always there will be an amazing raffle with some sensational items at the March munch event that you know you are going to want—so remember to raid the piggy bank before you come.

It’s easy to focus on details of form and technique with rough body play; it’s sensational (in all forms of the word), loud, sometimes there’s even screaming. But the truly powerful part of it is in its ability to connect at a deep and primal level. Is smacking your partner just sadistic? Maybe, but when all the pieces line up, it can be romantic, bonding, and extraordinarily powerful.

Privacy of BDSM & CIPEX Rules

Making a Safe Environment

by Richard, CIPEX Board Member

CIPEX BDSM privacy rulesBecause of the nature of BDSM and the lifestyle that surrounds it, the PRIMARY rule of CIPEX is the privacy of all who participate. This means that NO attack posts should EVER be posted in the CIPEX Forum. If you have a particular complaint that you think CIPEX needs to be aware of, or address in some fashion, then send us a note through the CIPEX website and I guarantee that your issue will be investigated and you will be notified of what action is taken. Of course I cannot guarantee that any issue will be resolved to your satisfaction, but at least you will know that you were heard and your issue was considered.


The other PRIMARY RULE in CIPEX is actually related to the privacy rule which is that NO ONE has the right to out somebody. Every single person in every single BDSM group has the right to their privacy. CIPEX BDSM Fetish No Means NoRecently you have seen some of our members have done interviews with regards to the movie release of Fifty Shades. You may have noticed that even for that a certain level of privacy and anonymity was maintained. This is because while we are not ashamed of what we do, we do NOT wish to be attacked by the press or anybody who does not agree with our lifestyle choices. While we expected to be supported by our fellow members of CIPEX, let me also state that we have had a huge level of HATE directed towards us because of that interview. But because of the anonymity that was honored by the news reporter, we have not been financially or had our public lives affected (ie: lost our jobs, been arrested, had negative false accusations been printed about us), yet. This still may occur but know that we are prepared for whatever may come our way.


The whole idea of CIPEX is to provide a safe environment for people to explore this lifestyle and for them to learn how to experience the joys of all or just a few of the activities that BDSM encompasses in a safe and sane manner. I hope that we all can come together as a community and support these goals that CIPEX has.

CIPEX BDSM February Dinner & Discussion

CIPEX Consent Negotiation February Dinner & DiscussionThe Reality to the Fairy Tale

This February’s Dinner and Discussion event is inspired from the movie Fifty Shades of Grey.  The topic will be on consent and negotiation, and will be at the Home Plate Diner in Des Moines, Iowa.

Due to the lifestyle being catapulted into the limelight, regardless of the portrayal onscreen, it is going to generate conversation. The dialog will boil down to one thing: consent. Consent is our bread and butter, and to establish consent involves negotiation. This discussion may be geared towards new members, but remember that it’s the established members of the community who set the stage.

For more information contact Mac for more details.

CIPEX Member Ms Robin Interviewed by The Des Moines Register


CIPEX Des Moines Dominatrix 50 Shades of Gray Article

Mischief in May is experiencing a sudden surge in ticket sales as the article where our own Ms. Robin and Master J are interviewed by the Des Moines Register has quickly been picked up and appeared on the USA Today FRONT PAGE of the National News Section for over 8 hours today and is still getting over 200 hits per hour. This led to an interview with the Huffington Post which is currently in the top 20 stories of the day. All of this activity has led to a surge of hits on the CIPEX website which in turn has given us the MOST HITS EVER for a single 24 hour period on the Mischief in May website.

Remember that Mischief is expected to sell-out again this year but we did not anticipate that we would have this early surge in ticket sales. DON’T BE LEFT OUT! Buy your Full Event Passes to Mischief as soon as possible.

Des Moines kink community welcomes ‘Fifty Shades’

While other 6-year-old girls were brushing their Barbies’ hair and dressing them up for convertible rides with Ken, Ms. Robin was hogtying hers.

“I saw cartoons like ‘Mighty Mouse’ where they tied up the heroine,” Ms. Robin said recently, sitting on a chair in her West Des Moines home, “and in my mind I tied these women up, because it’s what I liked. It’s who I am.”

It was the first inkling that Ms. Robin was interested in a different kind of life from her peers, the kind of life that involved hogtying — professionally.

Ms. Robin, 60, is a dominatrix and has been for almost a decade. She’s a grandmother of three and an expert in bondage, flogging, caning, spanking and medical play…

You Don’t Have to be Hypnotized to be Kinky

Making Hypnosis Erotic with Hypnotherapist Joe Brunner

By Evennfall

CIPEX erotic hypnosis presenter Joe Brunner Have you ever wanted to be hypnotized? CIPEX invites you to come to the February Munch event on Hypnosis, Orgasm, and Control by Joe Brunner. Saturday, February 7th from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at The Garden, 112 SE 4th Street, Des Moines, Iowa. Learn about the powerful tool of hypnosis and how you may be using it already!

Joe Brunner, known by his Fetlife name of WhisperOPleasure, has been training since the late 1970s. A certified hypnotherapist who has studied with pioneers in the field, Brunner presents seminars and workshops on hypnosis, including erotic hypnosis.

Brunner took the time to answer a few questions about his upcoming CIPEX munch presentation, including: what makes hypnosis erotic, who can be hypnotized and how to enhance pleasure in play!

How did you become interested in hypnosis?

Originally hypnosis caught my interest during High School, I thought it might help me to meet my potential in studies and athletics. My results were mixed but impressive. I later had the honor to study under a few of hypnosis’ modern pioneers, and even later I found I had been effectively using hypnosis for pain management and dealing with past trauma. With this revelation I felt I could help other people improve their lives with the use of hypnosis. Today I have earned nationally recognized certifications in hypnotherapy, as well as many accredited specialty certifications.

During this insightful presentation, Speaker Certified Hypnotherapist, Joe Brunner, will help to enlighten as well as dispel some misconceptions of hypnosis by helping to understand not only how to use this powerful tool but to know how we have been using hypnosis all along without realizing it. The world of Erotic Hypnosis is fascinating in itself. I will explain “Peak Performance” in sexual pleasures and orgasms. And of course how orgasm control and on demand might be achieved.
