Join us as we welcome Chelsey Morgan (They/Them) for Please Kink Responsibly: An Intro to Safety in BDSM / Kink on Tuesday, November 2nd at 7:00 PM EST over Zoom!
This workshop will be recorded and will be made available for a limited time to everyone who registers.
This workshop is designed to address safety concerns in common Kink and BDSM practices, which are often first explored by beginners in the kink community so as to curate risk-awareness for those interested in diving into the world of sexual taboo. This workshop is inclusive of all people. Specifically, those of all gender identities, those who identify as disabled, and those whose bodyminds find liberation in the clear communication, creativity and inclusivity inherent in kink, even if you do not hold the identity of "kinky".
As a disclaimer, this is not a comprehensive overview of all the dangers associated with kink, nor is it a comprehensive list of kinky behaviors. This is meant to be used as a starting point to assess health risks associated with introducing kink into your erotic profile and only covers behaviors within the following categories of BDSM: Bondage, Impact Play, Sensation Play, and Breath Play.
The goal of this workshop is for students to recognize the importance of consent and safety in kink and to provide a baseline awareness of safety concerns in common Kink / BDSM practices.
Through this workshop participants to be able to identify the most common types of play for those first introduced to BDSM / Kink, to recognize the inherent risks associated with these common kink practices, and to recall at least 3 different practices they can employ in order to minimize the physical risks associated with kink play.
