This event has passed.

Doing deep D/S takes trust, knowledge, and connection - qualities that are built over time.

Relationships which incorporate consensual power exchange provide an environment for experimentation, growth, and refinement of the power dynamic in ways that are not possible in a single scene. For many, an ongoing dynamic is the state they've always wanted.

Building ANY relationship is hard. It takes self-awareness, honesty, persistence, and a variety of skills. Building a D/S relationship is extra hard in some ways, but we also have additional tools at our disposal.

This class maps out strategies for starting and growing D/S relationships and provides tools you can use right away.  We'll cover

  • Finding partners
  • Defining the scope of your authority transfer
  • Managing multiple partners in a D/S relationship
  • Working through issues and disagreements
  • Making sure your dynamic is based on desire, not on structural power

* Workshop structure

This workshop will include lecture, demos and (optional) exercises. There will be plenty of time for Q&A as well.

The exercises are set up to be done alone - you don't need to attend with a partner to find value in this class.

As always with Max’s classes, there’ll be a handout to facilitate your learning and your ability to practice after the workshop.

This is part of Max's monthly D/S series, offered on the 3rd Tuesday of the month.

* Who should attend?

This workshop assumes no previous BDSM experience and is appropriate for all genders, all orientations, and for both tops and bottoms.

If you're interested in exploring power dynamics within a consensual relationship, this workshop is for you.

You may attend alone or with a partner. Please buy a ticket for each attendee.

* Afterwards

Attendees will receive a handout full of principles, technique, and resources.

Max also offers private coaching as you build your skill as a dominant or submissive. These sessions are completely customized to meet your needs and desires. Contact Max to discuss these offerings.

* Cancellation / refund policy

If you cancel your registration up to 2 days  before the event you will receive a full refund.

* About Max

Max has been active in Seattle's kink community since 1992 and has taught workshops and offered private coaching since 1999. He is nourished and guided by his strong roots in the kink, queer, leather and poly communities.

Max weaves his BDSM practice into his life because it's an especially effective way to build intimacy. The level of trust, communication, and active consent required for this practice creates beautiful, powerful experiences, and deep relationships.

Max has spent a lifetime building a range of skills, to include the intimacy of rope bondage, the intensity of the singletail, the connection of erotic hypnosis, and the power of authority-transfer (D/S) relationships.

Max is always the consummate professional - competent, attentive, passionate, respectful, and empathetic. He loves what he does and is grateful for opportunities to help others explore kink and find deeper connection.
