New to Kink: Things I Wish I Knew

Doors at 12:00pm. Class from 12:30-2:00pm.

This event has passed.

This is a class for folks who are newer to BDSM. MxBliss will share their ‘new to kink’ mistakes in the hopes that you can avoid them!  In this class, we'll provide a quick intro to the wonderful world of BDSM.  We will start with vocabulary and etiquette (including play party norms). Then we will cover ways to find play partners more safely including vetting and spotting red flags.  Finally, we will cover MxBliss’s favorite topic: consent and negotiation in BDSM. This is a whirlwind tour so while not specifically covered on the agenda, they are reserving time to address your questions about Fetetiquette (Fetlife etiquette), finding a mentor/mentee, pick up play, what to do if you are involved in a consent incident, or anything else you’d like to know about the curious, delightful, and potentially dangerous world of BDSM.

About the Educator: 

Mx Bliss (she/they) is a joyful sadomasochist, sensation empath, consent enthusiast, rope switch, self suspender, and lifestyle quinkster (queer kinkster). They identify as Daddy AF, on both sides of the slash.  Bliss is having the time of their life discovering all the ways to connect with BDSM and rope and is eager to share the joy. They co-facilitate AlternaRope, a celebration of diversity in rope and co-hosts the Friction pop-up events. She also produces the Jiffy Kink events. Both in vanilla and kink worlds, MxBliss frequently presents on negotiation, consent, and diversity/equity/inclusion. With some trepidation, she is starting to teach some rope classes. She loves all the feedback, especially the kind that will help her grow and have her intention better mirror the impact of her behavior/words.
