DEFCON 201 November Meet-Up — EFF: Electronic F%&king Fun & TeaseCraft
Welcome to a VERY SPECIAL November 2017 DEFCON 201 meet up!
Time: 7:00 PM — 10:00 PM
Location: MakerBar (38 Jackson St. 3rd Floor, Hoboken, NJ)
NOTE: All info posted here is TBD. We will have the final version a week before the event.
Today marks the near end of our month long initiative called “EFF: Electronic F%&king Fun!” All month of November, DEFCON 201 has been branching out to Sex Education topics to spread the hacker mentality and community to people we don’t normally interact with very often. DEFCON 201 has been educating people on the hacker mentality, hacker ethic and how to explore our own sexuality in the most hackerish and safe way possible. We have also been raising money for various sex positive organizations listed below.
We will be during our Meet & Greet doing our final, in person round on collecting donations for these organizations (swag may be involved) followed by an outstanding list of Lightning Talks that will expand your boundaries and open your mind to the many applications of hacking in our human lives.
Finally, our Open Project will be the first ever 201 area Teasecraft where we will be working on crafting, 3D printing and programming our own pleasure stuff. If you have any coding or hardware project not sex related, this is fine! In our opinion, nothing is more kinky than trying to root your Android phone or pop a hypervisor!
NOTE: All participants will be required to HAVE THEIR CLOTHES ON at ALL TIMES. This will be a 18+ ONLY EVENT so please do not bring your young ones to this meet up. To our younger members will see you again in December!

How Violet Wands Work
:..>In the late 1800s with the spread of the use of electricity and the proliferation of inventors, electricity was touted as a means to cure many physical and mental ailments. Thus, from Tesla coil and medical shock box grandparents, the violet ray parent birthed one meek child: the soft, angelic ‘High Frequency’ beauty device… and one ‘demon’ spawn….. The Violet Wand. Violet wands are modern electrical sexual or kink stimulation toys. They are used for the application of low current, high voltage (min 35 kV to max 65 kV typically), high-frequency electricity to the body. They are most commonly used in BDSM though erotic sensation play is also possible with them. Join our expert as he will go over how to build, maintain and use a Violet Wands for personal use. During the open workshop; safety, basic and advance techniques will be taught to those who want to try a hands-on demo in a safe environment.

Teasecraft NJ/NYC with Kit Stubbs & Friends
:..>What is Teasecraft?
teasecraft meetup groups are for folks interested in making their own sex toys / BDSM equipment / other kinky and fun things.
All are welcome, regardless of your (a)sexuality/orientation/gender or what materials you work with (electronics, wood, metal, leather, software, etc.).
The goals of teasecraft are to:
- Create local, sex/kink-positive spaces where people can have informal conversations about making and hacking technology
- Bring together makers and crafters who work with a diverse range of materials
- Give everyone an opportunity to see the fun things that their neighbors are building
teasecraft isn’t a formal organization, but a loose collection of people hosting meetup groups in their own local areas.
We at DEFCON 201 are honored to host the first ever Hudson County Teasecraft and are reaching out to those in North East New Jersey and New York City to bring all their crazy ideas. Floggers, clothing, paddles, whips, comic books, chain mail, toys, ect. Whatever floats your boat that you DYI, we love to bring it and do a show and tell on how it works and how you created it!
:..>What To Bring:
Yourself and any (preferably kink) projects you’d like to show off.
DEFCON 201 Code of Conduct and Operational Documents Editathon
:..>For those who are not aware, we do have a Code of Conduct and other forms of policy and operations. These are living documents that we want to work with the DEFCON 201 members and community to build upon over time. We need your help and input to make our operations clearer, better and smoother in the future!
:..>What To Bring: Yourself and a clear state of mind.
