Course Description: In BDSM and kink, communication is the key to fulfilling your needs and successfully playing with others. Negotiations and contracts help participants establish trust and play together with both physical and emotional safety. Through communication and establishing ground rules, each partner knows what is expected of them. Negotiations and contracts also prioritize and clarify consent -- which is crucial for BDSM play and power exchange.

Join sex therapist Dr. Ryan Westrum and learn how to communicate with your partner(s) so that everyone’s needs and desires can be met in a safe, sane, and consensual manner. Topics will include:

  • What’s the big deal? Why Contracts?
  • Basics of exploring boundaries
  • Differences between Negotiations and Contracts
  • Understanding limits
  • Communicating Safe Words
  • How to make a BDSM contract

This is an interactive group workshop with opportunities for discussion and practice.
