Version for Couples (all orientations) & Singles (M/F pairings).

The fundamental things you need to know in order to safely and happily explore the world of kink. Part theory, part practice, and surprisingly accessible.

'Kink’ (noun): A sharp twist or curve in something that is otherwise straight.

If you’re curious about kinky stuff, or you’ve played a little bit but want a more solid foundation, then this space is for you. This workshop will provide you with the knowledge and attitude you need to pursue kink safely, at your own pace, while giving you a feel for what is possible. It will present information in a way that is positive, accessible, fun, and empowering.

You don't need any background knowledge or experience. Subject material is approached with a sense of humour and a deep respect for getting the fundamentals correct first. The workshop will establish:

- A quick review of the world of kink – what’s possible, what it’s about, why people like it.
- Safety – what parts of your mind and body are good to play with, and what you should leave for later. How to avoid abuse, and how to negotiate play. How to pick a wickedly good play partner from one to avoid.
- A discovery of your own pleasure, pain, and limitations, and simple techniques to provide this feedback to a partner.
- Roles and jargon – what’s a sub, dom, top, bottom, switch, and how do you fit into all that?
- The curve of a kinky scene: Negotiation, foreplay, warm-up, action, cool-down, and after-care.
- How communication is your gateway to a world of adventure.

Intensity: Two out of four chillies. Most people experience this workshop as a gentle introduction, some people experience it as challenging (kink can be triggering).

Who for: The curious. Couples where one or both parties have played a little, and want more information and guidance. Couples who haven't played with kink, but might like to. Couples of any any gender or sexual orientation. Singles with a similar level of curiosity, and who are happy to do defined activities with other singles on a heterosexual basis—meaning, people that identify as ‘women’ will be paired with people that identify as ‘men’.

Who not for: Probably not for highly experienced players, unless they're just checking out how other folks do things. Single people that don’t identify as ‘men’ or as ‘women’, or that for whatever reason would be more comfortable in the ‘gender blender’ version of this workshop.

What exercises/activities?: Verbal sharing of interests, issuing instructions, green/orange/red, simple chest-harness and blindfold, impact play warmup.

Will there be pair-work? Yes.

How will pairing be done? Couples (of any gender or sexual orientation) are welcome, and welcome to work exclusively with each other. People arriving as singles (or couples that want to play with other people) will be paired via a random number system, where those that identify as ‘men’ will be paired with those that identify as ‘women'. Please note, all exercises can be taken only to the level that's right for you at the time. Also note there is a ‘gender blender’ version of this workshop.

Can you work exclusively with one partner? Yes, if you buy ‘couples’ tickets.

Nudity: Some participants may choose to work with partial nudity for some exercises but this is not an expectation.

Sexual content: The workshop is primarily about various forms of sexual expression.

Commitment: You may sit out of any activity, or participate only to a level that's right for you.

Ratio of discussion to experiential: About 50/50 percent.

Bring: Water bottle, your own snacks.

Wear: Whatever you're comfortable in. There is no dress code.
