Kink Exploratorium 3: BDSM 101

BDSM 101

For the absolute beginner, the merely curious, or even the old hand looking to meet some new people, a friendly and relaxed introduction to the fundamental elements of Bondage/Domination/Sadism/Masochism.

In addition to learning how to get the BDSM experiences you want and how to have a great time safely, there will be demonstrations and hands-on learning of basic bondage, Dominant/submissive role play, and how to smack a man around some and how to get smacked around some and enjoy it.

No more risk or danger than your basic Tupperware Party, and there will be a snack!  Wear comfortable clothes (boots encouraged!) and bring an open mind.
