This event has passed.

Before you head out to the dungeon, come learn best practices (and mistakes made) for getting more play in your life. You’ll walk out of this class with practical skills for finding, negotiating, executing, and concluding a scene with special attention to ‘pick-up’ play.  We’ll discuss the art of flirting (without being creepy).  You’ll also get a framework for negotiating scenes with someone relatively unknown to you. In the workshop, we’ll share precautions and best practices when playing with someone you recently met. Finally, come learn the secret of world-class aftercare. We will reserve time to demo and rehearse your new flirting and communication tools.
