What is the difference between Domination/submission and S/M? What is a kink? Are fetishes healthy? What is the nature of the sexual power exchange? What are some dynamics of sexual sensation play? What types of behaviors are involved, what are the “rules” or good guidelines for people who want to practice kink? In this workshop, we will explore definitions, discuss varieties of behaviors, begin to understand the vast world of power exchange and be introduced to various fetishes. Participants will practice discerning consensual behaviors from abuse using a respected rubric.
