By centering the practice of self-accountability and exploration, the goal of this workshop aims to use radical consent to increase our access to overall wellness and pleasure. We will fortify our full body processing power by expanding the definition and application of consent to the body to unpack barriers limiting access to our erotic power centers.
We will address consent from the framework of freedom, as well as creating healthy boundaries, to expand our erotic pleasure libraries and knowledge of self by exploring "nonsexual" stimulation. This is an interactive workshop using consent principles and fetishes found within BDSM/KINK culture. We will learn safe ways to create pleasurable scenes, engage in certain types of play, and better articulate what is possible within consensual dynamics. This workshop is open to all genders.
