This will be a workshop about basic kink - beginners bondage, simple knots, kink safety, desire and consent. Facilitator will demonstrate and others will have materials and folks to try them out on. We will explore whatever people want to try out as well as having a loose discussion/Q&A. This is meant to help promote sex positivity and a community of folks interested in kink and non-normative sexuality. It will be very queer and gender/sex non-normative positive, but it will be open to anyone who is interested.
