Explore what is expected of a new person entering the scene, all the need-to-know information, motivations behind play, safety and more.
If you're curious about the kink & BDSM (Bondage & Discipline/Dominance & Submission/Sadism & Masochism) lifestyle, but still have questions, or have a partner who is new to the lifestyle, this is the class for you.
It's normal for people to have lots of questions and even some concerns about how to act, what events to go to and how to find play partners. This class will address those concerns and more. We'll also talk about safety, what differentiates BDsM from abuse and the wonderful world of kink gear and toys.
This class is for people of all genders, orientations & experience levels. Even if you're not kinky yourself, but have questions about why people are, this class is for you!
Accessibility info: Self Serve's entrance & bathroom are accessible. Please refrain from wearing heavily scented products. Email email@example.com if you would like an ASL interpreter and we can try to arrange it.
