“Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.”
― Vernon Sanders Law

We’ve all had moments in life where we’ve thought, “If someone had just told me that, this would have gone a lot easier!” There’s no substitute for experience, but sometimes learning from someone else’s mistakes is good enough.

Come learn the basics of safety, privacy, and etiquette in the BDSM scene. We’ll talk about consent & negotiation, safewords, safely meeting new people, and what you might expect (and would be expected of you) at social and play events. This class is your chance to benefit from the collective experience of people who have made most of these mistakes before.

This class is open to all adults, 18 years of age or older, who are interested in learning about BDSM. No RSVP necessary. Join us and invite your friends who might also be curious. Whether you’re into rope or leather or just starting out and don’t know what you might be into, this class will help keep you safe and make your entry into the scene a smooth one.
