Keeping Yourself Safe: Toxic vs Healthy Relationship Dynamics

$5 Tickets are only available at door!!!!

Class Description:

BDSM can be tantalizing and stimulating for its participants because of its intensity, but onlookers often ask “what makes this different from abuse?” This class acknowledges the importance of differentiating between healthy kink dynamics that add to the experiences of all involved and harmful relationships masquerading as kinky.

Whether you're brand new to kink or have been involved for numerous years, you may find yourself in an unhealthy and/or abusive relationship despite being armed with the right knowledge. If you find yourself in that situation or are just getting out of it, it’s important to remember that there is still so much joy in the world. Regardless of how you identify, all can benefit from this workshop, as well as anyone not involved in the lifestyle.

Participants will learn:

• Red flags and what to avoid

• Raise awareness of how and when a kinky dynamic has taken a bad turn

• Ideas of what a healthy power exchange relationship could look like

• How to protect yourself against predators, manipulators, and energy vampires

• Tips for when you want to get intimate with someone new after leaving toxicity, whatever the nature of the relationship

• Rebuilding your self worth after having someone break it down

• Learning how to set healthy boundaries

This class is open to EVERYONE.
