Sub drop. Top drop. "A case of the Mondays."
Whatever we call it, post-scene drop is frustrating, irritating, and isolating. It often makes us question -- at least in the moment -- what was otherwise an awesome scene.
What is this awful mood we fall into after a scene, and what the heck can we do about it?
In this class, Miriam Green will draw on what we know about the neuropsychology of BDSM to help us better understand drop, and build strategies for resilience when we face it. We'll talk about:
- Common misconceptions about drop
- What's really going on in the mind, brain and body
- Mind-body strategies for before, during and after the scene to help us bounce back
- How to change our narrative to avoid making drop worse
- The best ways to effectively communicate after a scene -- for good scenes and bad
You'll come away with better self-understanding and a self-care toolkit to draw on when drop comes calling. Join us!
Miriam Green has been in the public kink scene for over one dozen years in the Austin, Houston and San Francisco scenes. They teach a series of KINK 101 classes on the SF kink community, BDSM negotiations, and dating while kinky. They also are the owner of Wicked Grounds.
$15 - $35 in advance. Tickets will also be available at the door at a sliding scale of $20-$40. Please pay at the level you can comfortably afford.
Please note: This class is available for free to Wicked Grounds Patreon members who are subscribed at the VIP level ($30/month or higher). If you are a current Patreon member at that level, please check Patreon for the promo code.
We offer a sliding scale, so that cost is not a barrier to attendance.
The regular ticket is $25. This is what most people should pay.
The $15 ticket is offered for those for whom the $25 ticket would be a barrier to participation. If $25 is too much, we take your word for it! Just pay $15.
Have a great salary? Feeling generous? Paying at the $35 level allows us to make the discounted ticketing available to others who need it.
So - that's it! Choose the level you can comfortably afford.
This class will be taught out of Trellis, and will simultaneously be offered as a live, online class through Zoom. You may choose to attend in person at Trellis in San Francisco, or online from anywhere in the world!
In SF, this class will be held in the Rambling Rose Room at Trellis. Please note that doors will close quickly so we recommend arriving 15 minutes before the class start time for check in. Late check-ins will require you to join online.
Please do not attend in person if you have any respiratory symptoms whatsoever. Anyone displaying signs of respiratory symptoms may be asked to leave, regardless of vaccination status.
Or, attend online anywhere via Zoom! To participate, you will need to download the free, basic version of the Zoom app before the class. This class **WILL** be recorded and is available for later viewing. Zoom now provides closed captioning which will be available for this event.
