Panels and Workshops List

Alternative Relationships


Gypsy of Karnevil, Robert Roman, Emmy Jackson

This panel is to help nurture open communication regarding the differing relationships within the convention community. All input is welcomed as is lively discourse, but NO TROLLING!!! I would like to have many different relationship types represented within the panel, so please feel free to come and chat! This is as much about interpersonal communication as it is about the relationship definitions themselves.

Ask a Karny


Karnevil

"Does that hurt?", "Why do you do these things?", "Where did you learn that?", "How much rum would it take to...?","Does this look infected to you?", "Boxers or briefs?", "Will you marry me?” All the questions you never wanted answers for and more can be asked of the krew of Karnevil in this informal round table discussion. Do you want to know more about us? Do you want us to know more about you? (You don't, but who are we to judge) Interested in hearing us ramble on about weird tour and con stories? Or have an intense debate on magical methodology and technique? (I AM A WIZZZZARD! It says so on the label) Seriously though, if you have enjoyed this blurb, or genuinely have an interest in anything we may or may not have to say, you should come... see things that can’t be unseen, and hear things that can't be unheard. It's good for you. (Trust me, I'm also a doctor.)

Little Miss Rollerhoops Teaches Hooping!


Little Miss Rollerhoops

Think you can't hula hoop? Think again. Many people automatically assume that they are unable to keep a hoop going around their waists, after they try for a few seconds and it falls. This is more than likely simply not the case 🙂 Most people under the impression that they aren't able to hoop, are doing something incorrectly and/or aren't doing something that would help.

Moral Fiber: Sylvester Graham, J.H. Kellogg and Why Eating Cereal Prevents Masturbation


Professor Mark P. Donnelly

As a rule, there's often more to folk wisdom than bad science, and so it is with myths about masturbation and other aspects of sexuality. In America, a peculiar flowering of these myths took place in the mid to late 19th century. Though the predictable culprits -- Victorian prudery, evangelical Christianity, entrepreneurialism -- are part of the picture, what's less known is the myths' century-old relationship with whole-grain foodstuffs. Thanks to certain influential health advocates, sex and diet were inexorably linked, and, for both, healthy meant bland.
The souvenirs of these efforts with us today are only ironic footnotes on the graves of two crusaders: Sylvester Graham, immortalized not for his sexual and nutritional reform but for the sugared brown crackers used in pie crust and John Harvey Kellogg, a flaked-food believer eclipsed by his breakfast cereal dynasty.

Anyone familiar with the 1994 film “the Road to Wellville” or the book upon which it is based will be well aware of this bizarre story. Health and Diet crazes are nothing new, and they are often a quick route to making a fortune; and even more so when packed in prurient morality.

Mythological Villains


Patrick Thomas, Heather Hutsell, Robert Roman, Russ Colchamiro, Jack Hillman

Human history is filled with legends of heroes and gods, many of whom mimic human behavior but on a far grander scale. When it comes to mythological vixens and villains, there is no simply no shortage.

Join the panelists as they discuss some of their favorite villains and vixens of myth.

Torture 101: Torture and Punishment through History


Professor Mark P. Donnelly

(Content taken from my book The Big Book of Pain – Torture and Punishment Through History) For millennia, mankind has devised ingenious and diabolical means of inflicting pain on fellow human beings. This deplorable but seemingly universal trait has eaten away at mankind's very claim to civilization. This lecture/presentation (which will be profusely illustrated using images from our book) is an exploration of the systematic use throughout the ages of various means of punishment, torture, coercion and torment. Since Ancient Greece it has been an acknowledged fact that virtually anyone can be made to confess to anything under sufficient torture. The information extracted under torture, therefore, is wholly unreliable, so there is no good reason for a culture to advocate the use of torture in the hopes of using a legally useful confession. And yet, it is a practice which has persisted in virtually every culture on the planet from pre-history until the present day. This lecture asks why.

Jackal Blackwell, Knotted Pleasurez

Viscous Vixens: a history of women fighting armed duels


Professor Mark P. Donnelly

We have all heard the terms 'men at arms' and 'men of honor' but what about the women? When a woman's honor was impinged did she invariably look to a man to defend her honor on her behalf? Well, yes, often... but not always. This presentation (led but noted historian and combat scholar Prof. Mark P Donnelly) focuses on the often overlooked historical instances of women taking up arms to defend their own honor.

Whip Demo


Arson of Karnevil

Do you delight in the Indiana Jones films? Have you always wanted a whip in case you had to combat evil Spanish aristocrats from the 19th century... or perhaps even Dracula?! The bullwhip has earned a special place in our culture, but not all of what you think this amazing tool is capable of is based on fact…or is it? Join professional Whip Artist J.R. Whitcomb, sometimes known as Arson from Karnevil as he separates fact from fiction by demonstrating the many ways to crack a whip, answers all your whip related inquiries, and explains the intricacies of proper whip handling. Depending on turnout, space, and time limitations (Timelords need not assist, your meddlings may leave the convention stranded on the surface of the Seventh Sun of Trun...), participants may be invited for a short hands on instruction with some of J.R.'s personal collection, but please feel free to bring your own whip!
