This event has passed.

Are you top-curious or new to topping? This is the class for you. Primarily discussion based, this workshop will cover physical, mental, and emotional safety for both tops and bottoms, communication and consent, how to handle consent violations, best practices for learning new skills, and how to gauge non-verbal feedback.

This workshop is appropriate for tops, bottoms, and switches, primarily geared towards folks new to topping. The "hands-on" portion will focus around negotiation and consent, both with regular partners and those you've just met. Other topics covered will be pick-up play, confidence-building, top drop/sub drop, and how to get what you want out of a scene.

Please come prepared with questions and topics you'd like us to discuss. Bring your good experiences, experiences that could have gone better, your ideal scenes, and your enthusiasm. All shapes, sizes, colors, orientations, and expressions are welcome and encouraged.

All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, religions are welcome and celebrated.

Cost at the door: $30.
Questions may be directed to: education@thefspc.org

About the Educators:

Trouble: Since joining the Seattle kink scene in 2011, Trouble has become an advocate for enthusiastic consent, risk mitigation, inclusion, and (almost) all things rope or latex. Whether teaching solo or with a group, her focus is on making sure everyone's needs are addressed, doing dangerous things well, and feeling good while doing them. Her dynamic and interactive teaching style incorporates multiple learning styles, ensuring that all students have a chance to be heard, participate, and get information specific to their interests. Outside of teaching, Trouble leads a women's rope group and is the visual art manager for Seattle Erotic Art Festival. She's called Trouble for a reason. Don't say we didn't warn you.

 
-Chef- is a passionate educator with a desire to help all persons reach their potential. He is committed to consent and spreading consent culture to the masses. He loves opening people to new ideas, exposing them to new experiences, and exploring ways to bring "hot" to their lives.
