CHICAGO – Are you a newcomer to kink and want to learn how to play safer? Have you been around awhile, and want a refresher course? Maybe you’ve got a friend who is curious and you want to teach them the basics? GD2 is excited to welcome Boi Kris for a class all about playing safer.
Sticks and stones may break your bones, and whips and chains may excite you, but physical OR emotional damage from BDSM gone way, way wrong can linger for years, or even decades. In this workshop, Boi Kris will cover both physical and emotional safety issues facing lifestyle participants. Starting with basic BDSM safety precautions, basic dungeon first aid and universal health precautions, and covering such hot-button issues as ways to avoid emotional pitfalls, a primer on commonly accepted BDSM community etiquette and some strategies for building successful BDSM relationships, participants will leave with the tools needed to have more positive experiences, in and out of the dungeon.
