SF/ONLINE: KINK 101: BDSM Negotiation Basics with Miriam Green

Sep 19th
2 AM - 4 AM
  • Hosted by Wicked Grounds
  • San Francisco, CA -

*This class will be offered both in person at Trellis in San Francisco, and simultaneously as a live, online class offered through Zoom. Please select SF or online tickets when purchasing.*

Negotiating is a critical skill for building BDSM scenes, dynamics and relationships that work. But negotiating doesn't necessarily come naturally -- especially for those of us who are just entering the kink scene.

Join us for a Kink 101 session on how to negotiate for exactly what you want in the BDSM scene and relationships. We'll talk about:

- Negotiation styles

- Pre-scene negotiations

- How to negotiate without killing the mood

- Checking in during and after the scene

- Negotiating and check-ins for ongoing BDSM dynamics

Drawing on what we know about the psychology of a scene, we'll learn how to negotiate as partners toward a BDSM style that is hotter, more fun, and more powerful for all partners in a dynamic.This series welcomes all genders, orientations, and dynamic styles. This workshop is designed for newcomers to BDSM but is open to anyone who wants new tools to improve their BDSM communications.

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.

If cost is a barrier at any point on the sliding scale, please use the Volunteer List at the bottom of the listing to request a scholarship seat.
