Kink Navigation: Finding Your Way in the Community

This class is open to all and is designed as an introductory class to help those new to Kink and BDSM to grasp the differences between Vanilla and Kink Culture.


Every day, newcomers like you want to enter the Kinkdom. They are excited and starry-eyed about all the possibilities that this community offers.

They seek out the community to become part of something, to be part of something, to engage with someone or two or more. But they are afraid of what they don't know. They want to do it right. They want to ensure they get the chance to do what they have dreamed about.

But they are often naive to how their words and actions can affect the most crucial thing they have in the community, their reputation. Without a thought, they can say or do something that will forever end their journey in shame.

Hi, I am Dan. For the last nine years, I have been on this kinky journey, and I have been where you are, and I have learned some hard lessons over the years. I am grateful to those who took the time to help me to learn and grow so that I am still part of this fantastic community.

I am the owner and lead instructor for All Tied Up San Diego and have helped thousands of newcomers get started in the Kinkdom. I know where you are, and I have walked this path.

It is not an easy path, no matter which side of the slash you are on, and you will have to decide many times how to respond to different situations. I want to help you understand your choices and how to make better decisions when the moment(s) arrive.

To get a great start on this journey, purchase your ticket to this class. And I promise if you don't obtain information that changes how you would make decisions in the community, I will refund your ticket in full.

I hope you will join me and the thousands of others who have entered the Kinkdom, overcome their fears, made wise decisions, and are doing the things they have dreamed about successfully.

Maybe you are not sure you need any guidance. Maybe you feel confident that you can do it alone. Perhaps you can. Unfortunately, I know far more people who didn't heed any advice, and they disappeared from the community after bad decisions ruined their reputations. Don't miss out on what you could have.

Maybe this class date isn't good for you. I am here to help you if you want it. If you want to wait a bit, I understand. Caution is one of the things I teach, just don't be naive.

If you want to wait, please sign up for our email list. Then you will have the opportunity to learn about future events.

If you have any questions, please message us.

Doors open at 7:00 and close at 7:20; class starts at 7:30. I hope to see you there.
