Ah, the steps to practical ownership and the subtle and not-so-subtle phases of authority transfer. We negotiate play and after-care, right? Well, what about negotiating a well-defined D/s dynamic? As many can attest, dynamics in a D/s relationship can be complex. They are about so much more than protocols, punishments, and service.

Dive into pragmatism with Devyn Stone and explore the psychology and sustainability of power exchange and authority transfer. Between Top and bottom, Dominant and submissive, together, you will learn to establish a clear process designed to get you both exactly what you're looking for in a functional and satisfying D/s dynamic!

Some of the topics that will be addressed in this class are the following:

- Understanding compatibility and how to assess it.
- Negotiating ownership in a D/s dynamic.
- Exploring the phases of authority transfer.
- Discovering needs and desires.
