BDSM 101

  • Please 557 5th Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11215 United States (map)

This introductory workshop will teach you how to gently integrate yourself into the exciting world of BDSM. Consider it abeginner's guide to exploring the erotic practice of bondage, discipline, dominance, submission, sadism, masochism — and all variations thereof. In a low key and relaxing atmosphere, professional fem-dommes Dia Dynasty and Lucy Sweetkill will lay down some basic techniques to build a solid BDSM foundation. They'll employ their many years of expertise to cover all the kinky cornerstones, from breaking down how to safely and consensually negotiate a scene, to demonstrating how to confidently use a few sex toys and tools. Curious about choosing the appropriate implement for impact play? The bondage benefits of rope vs. cuffs? What it looks like to balance fulfilling deviant desires while respecting boundaries? Learn how to navigate various kinky activities, as well as the importance of following with aftercare. By the end of class, you'll be equipped with playful ideas and empowered to communicate and execute them effectively.
