BOE presents: How make enemies and alienate people, Aug. 15

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. — Nervous about attending events as a newbie? Never quite feel like you fit in completely? Anxious about “getting it right” in this whole wide world of kink? Etiquette isn’t just for newbs!

We’ll give everybody some things to think about when attending kink events, whether those are munches or parties or big public conventions. We’ll cover topics like how to tailor your get-to-know-you conversation to an environment where identities may be purposely obscured or hidden, how to approach a stranger you think is teh hawt and negotiate some pickup play, how to do a little mental prep to make sure you have answers for what people might ask you in conversation or negotiation, and more. We’ll toss the basics at you, but we’ll also toss out some ways to extrapolate those basics into ideas that will let you make the right call in every tricky situation.

SuperSubtle joined the kink scene five years ago, and is still discovering new things to try. A few labels that more or less fit: queer, femme, poly, switch, grayromantic, omnisexual, leather-curious. She serves on the Board of Directors for the BOE, Detroit’s premier kink educational organization, and also hosts private play parties with her group Fevered Nights.

HerrDoktorVonWer is a hetero-flexible cis-male switch who moonlights as a mad scientist. He is a former chair and current member of the BOE Membership Committee. In his free-time, you can find him outdoors or nit-picking movies. He is a passionate and active supporter of the shark community.
