Version for Couples (all orientations) & Singles (paired with any gender).

This workshop was once called 'Kink 101'; it includes the fundamental things you need to know in order to safely and happily explore more adventurous forms of touch, intimacy, and sexual expression. It's about half-half theory and practice, and is surprisingly accessible.

If you’re curious about forms of play and intimacy that are more adventurous, or you’ve already played with some things that might be regarded as kinky or from the world of BDSM but want more of a grounding in how to do it well, then this workshop is for you. It will provide you with the knowledge and attitude you need to pursue your interests 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 in kink or BDSM (but at the same time, people that do have experience also report gaining a lot from this workshop). The subject material is approached with a sense of humor and a deep respect for getting the fundamentals correct first. The workshop will establish:

- A quick look at the types of play and intimacy that are available – what’s possible, what it’s about, and why people like it.
- Safety – what parts of your mind and body are good to play with, and what you should leave alone. We cover information relating to how to negotiate play in a lot of detail, and we touch on how to pick a wickedly good play partner from one to avoid.
- Adventurous play for those in relationships: Plenty of things to sustainably keep play with a long-term partner exciting.
- 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? (Do you even need to fit into all that?)
- The curve of a typical scene: Negotiation, foreplay, warm-up, peak, cool-down, and after-care.
- How communication is your gateway to a world of adventure.

We'll have an introduction to: Language and concepts; power play; issuing instructions; scene structure; basic rope-work; communication, and negotiating a scene; basic impact play; and safety and safe-words.

Late Policy: Unless otherwise stated, workshops start at the advertised time, and doors will be locked ten minutes later. This is because late arrivals interrupt the dynamic of the group, and will miss crucial safety information.

Tickets On Door?: All workshop tickets must be pre-purchased online, before the event. It is never possible to pay cash at the door; you will be turned away. More info at

Note this event was originally scheduled in July 2020 but has been rescheduled due to updated COVID-19 restrictions. We may move it forward, depending how the situation updates (we'll let attendees know, and their options).
