KINK 101: BDSM Negotiation Basics

Negotiating is a critical skill for building BDSM scenes, dynamics and relationships that work. But negotiating doesn't necessarily come naturally -- especially for those of us who are just entering the kink scene.

Join us for a Kink 101 session on how to negotiate for exactly what you want in BDSM scene and relationships.

This class will be held Saturday, July 20th from 2-4pm. Absolutely new to kink? You might want to check out our intro class "Welcome to Wicked Grounds" from 11:30am - 1:30pm:

Take me to the FetLife RSVP page:

Please take me to negotiate with the ticketing website!

We'll talk about:

- Negotiation styles
- Pre-scene negotiations
- How to negotiate without killing the mood
- Checking in during and after the scene
- Negotiating and check-ins for ongoing BDSM dynamics

In particular, we will map various ways to negotiate to the different stages of BDSM scenes and relationships so that your negotiation styles continue to be effective throughout the scene and beyond.

Drawing on tools from non-violent communication, neuro-linguistic programming, and even a bit of marketing and PR, we'll learn how to negotiate as partners toward a BDSM style that is hotter, more fun, and more powerful for all partners in a dynamic.

This series welcomes all genders, orientations, and dynamic styles. This workshop is designed for newcomers to BDSM, but is open to anyone who wants new tools to improve their BDSM communications.
