F**k Yes! Consent, Communication, and Negotiation
Effective communication is the foundation of healthy relationships, but all too often is inadequate or lacking. F**k yes! Consent, Communication, and Negotiation explores skills and strategies that enable healthy communication, boundary setting, negotiation, and consent. The workshop is designed to be interactive and will involve group brainstorming, guided storytelling, and activities to get everyone up and moving to practice consent, boundary setting, and negotiation in a lighthearted and nonsexual manner.
F**k Yes! Consent, Communication, and Negotiation for Kink and BDSM
This workshop builds on F**k Yes! Consent, Communication, and Negotiation with the focus on applying these skills and strategies to Kink and BDSM. This is an important topic for kink newbies and veterans alike. This workshop is also for those exploring D/s relationships where negotiation and consent is often done early on but renegotiation and effective check-ins are less common. This can lead to an erosion of boundaries and in some cases unintentional emotional abuse. We will explore ways to maintain personal safety and consent. We will also discuss strategies for leveraging the greater kink community for mutual support and safety. Kink and BDSM are natural and can often foster incredibly close and connected relationships due to the trust and intimacy required to play safely. Safety, consent, communication, boundaries, and negotiation are critical for fun, safer, risk-aware consensual kink and relationships in general.
