First Impressions: Pick-Up Play

“You never have a second chance to make a first impression” — it’s an oft repeated cliché because it’s true! Many crucial “firsts” go into pick-up play: poise, finding compatible partners, confident & empathetic negotiation, and reading your partner during the scene. This highly interactive class focuses on connection and risk awareness, and is geared to both submissives/bottoms and tops/Doms. It includes opportunities to assess your negotiation skills, consider your limits, and participate in roleplay scenarios. Stefanos & Shay will incorporate demonstrations focused on meeting people for pick-up play, negotiation, dynamic bottoming, and body language. (This class contains elements of demo, lecture, discussion, and class interaction.)


Type of workshop: Lecture, Discussion, Demo
