What do people mean when they say Kinky? What does BDSM stand for? I wanna be kinky, do I need to buy a whip now? This discussion will give you basic understanding of BDSM concepts. Don't be afraid, we won't be trying things out, but we will be talking about basic ideas that are common in this world. By the end you'll have a good vocabulary to start talking about it, and exploring what you like and don't like!
Touch is super important yet we cast it aside in our everyday lives. When we do have an intimate moment, we then immediately equate touch to sex. In this workshop we will talk about how important touch is for us, discuss consent & explore different types of touch. This workshop will enhance your quality of touch & will provide a toolbox of touch-types you can go back to in order to keep things fresh. This is an experiential workshop, come with a partner(s) or be ready to make new connections.
