Entering the world of BDSM can be a daunting task. Fighting your way through all the different labels, techniques and styles is difficult for even experienced players. There is no real book of standards and much of the information is presented as absolute but the next source can contradict it completely. This class will survey all the ways people get kinky with each other and help every attendee find the parts of this very vast subject that sing to them.

If you're relatively new to kink, there's no better way to get started with lecture and demonstrations that give you a solid foundation to explore kink.

This class is followed by the "Try It You'll Like It" event, which gives you an opportunity to watch and/or "sample" a number of kink activities. You are invited to join the "Getting Know You" Potluck and Social for dinner before "Try It, You'll Like It" begins.

Attendance is limited to 40 people.
Cost at the door: $30.
Questions may be directed to: education@thefspc.org
