Course Description: Join Sir Markus and his submissive Sarissa for a guided conversation on how to start your journey into kink in the safest and most informed way. Specifically tailored for young adults (but newcomers to kink of all ages are welcome), this workshop will cover tips for staying safe, plugging into the community, meeting others, screening potential play partners, and common pitfalls to avoid as you start your kink journey.

Key topics:

  • Recommendations for where to start (and what to avoid) when you’re new

  • Building a support group within the community

  • Making friends on “your side of the slash”

  • How to vet a potential play partner (and common red flags to look for)

  • Safety protocols to include when you meet or play with someone new

  • Finding a mentor/protector

  • Setting the right pace for exploration, growth, and safety

  • How to handle a bad experience

  • Separating sex and play (if you want to)



Sir Markus has been an active lifestyle Dominant for over 25 years. His journey as a Dominant started with an 18 month apprenticeship under an elder Dom in the San Francisco BDSM community. Over the last 15 years he has served as an instructor in San Francisco and Seattle, in addition to formally training over 30 submissives, slaves, apprentice Doms, and D/s couples through individual training contracts. While his own journey into kink began further in the past, the breadth of his experience can provide valuable insight into how to guide your journey in the safest manner possible.

Markus’s assistant and submissive Sarissa has accumulated 7 years of experience within the lifestyle and is now a recognized performer and mentor within the local community. At 26, her own journey as a young adult is still fresh in her mind, and she can provide candid and vulnerable real life experience of the steps (and missteps) along the way.
