This class will use personal examples to examine how mistakes in play can affect risk profiles in regard to injuries and communication with partners, both pick up and serious and in between. It will also look at how mistakes affect trust in relationships, and how they can be shared with the scene as a whole. Discussion will be encouraged throughout the class. Ultimately, mistakes don’t have to be inherently bad or negative events!
Type of workshop: Lecture, Discussion
This interactive class will discuss various broad aspects of D/s, before focusing on evaluating and evolving individual D/s practice (rules, routines, and protocol) in daily life as well as scene-oriented situations. The class will provide beneficial exercises for exploring different types of protocol, allowing participants to better understand what works for them. The goal is for those interested in D/s dynamics to have the opportunity to begin or work on new or preexisting protocol frameworks in class and then to be able to continue this work at home with current or future partners.
