Pineapple Support to Hold 3-Day ‘Healing Through Kink’ Workshop

Pineapple Support has announced a three-day event, “Healing Through Kink,” focusing on the benefits and psychology behind BDSM and fetish.

The event will take place online April 27- 29 and is free for adult performers.

“Kink can be seen as a sensual, intimate and powerful somatic practice which many people find healing,” said Leya Tanit, founder and president of Pineapple Support.

“There is strength in being able to reclaim parts of your sexuality that have been buried or feel shame-fueled from past trauma,” Tanit added, inviting performers to “join us on this journey, while we discover how being a part of the kink and BDSM lifestyle can affect mental health and possibly help persons heal from past trauma.”

The “Healing Through Kink” event is sponsored by ShinyBound.com, Kink.com, Feet4Cash, LoyalFans and Clips4Sale. The virtual event will include live webinars from therapists, counselors and mental health experts, as well as panels and round table discussions with performers and producers.

Pineapple Support, FanCentro to Host ‘Virtual Happiness Retreat’ Thursday

Pineapple Support and FanCentro’s Centro University will host a free all-day virtual event for sex workers and adult industry performers Thursday, starting at 11 a.m. (PDT), with a focus on mental health and wellness.

Seven virtual webinars will include “live exercises, presentations and interactive workshops from Pineapple Support therapists, as well as sessions from leading counselors, coaches and performers in the industry,” explained a rep.

The day’s schedule is as follows:

  • 11 a.m. (PDT): “Visioning Your Life” with Hannah Lily
  • 12 p.m. (PDT): “Self-Care Incorporating Routines” with Miki Anderson
  • 12:30 p.m (PDT): “Embracing Happiness & Joy” with Liza Belle

  • 4 p.m. (PST): “Choose Your Own Happy Ending” with Sinead Rochford

“We created Centro University, a free educational platform to help influencers build successful careers, in order to help performers thrive,” VP of FanCentro Kat Revenga said. “While education is a vital element of influencers’ success, we know that happy performers tend to be more innovative, creative and inspirational. Happiness increases productivity because it leads to higher engagement, providing you with more energy to focus on and pay attention to your fans. Appreciation breeds loyalty, and, for influencers, ultimately increases the profitability of their businesses.”

Pineapple Support is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization in the United States and a registered charity in the U.K.

“Adult influencers can be highly focused entrepreneurs, which means they may not always prioritize happiness over success,” Founder Leya Tanit said. “Having a job you love is great, but it can be hard to maintain a positive mental attitude. We’re thankful to FanCentro for helping us provide the sex worker community with a day full of workshops and webinars focused on creating a happier and healthier life.”

Pineapple Support to Host Online Course on Managing Stress

Pineapple Support will host a free eight-week course, moderated by therapist Sophie Graham, designed to help performers mitigate stress by managing their emotions.

The online course will begin Monday, January 11 and run for two hours, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (PST), each week at the same time until March 1. Graham will focus on DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) techniques.

“Out-of-control emotions can make it hard to maintain friendships, romantic relationships and can even jeopardise our careers,” Graham said. “Without the skills we need to cope with difficult emotions, it’s impossible to deal effectively with stressful or distressing situations that inevitably come up in our lives. This course will teach how to recognise, understand and regulate emotions to have more choices when it comes to managing day-to-day stressors and distressing events.”

Pineapple Support Founder Leya Tanit described Graham as “a disabled, queer coach and therapist working primarily with marginalised individuals and groups.”

Graham is “experienced in helping others feel more able to manage the challenges in their lives in their own way,” said Tanit. “This course is going to be incredibly useful for anyone in the industry that is interested in managing stress in a healthier and more effective way.”

Pineapple Support is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization in the United States and a registered charity in the U.K.
