BDSM 101 Presentation

BDSM 101 Presentation Description:

BDSM has been around for as long as people have been, although its recognition as a separate form of sexuality is a fairly recent development. From Cave paintings of spankings, instructions on sensual spanking in the Kamasutra, the Victorians penchant for the taboo and the iconic images of 1950s models like Betty Page, kink has had some interesting developments throughout history. Currently, the 50 Shades craze is bringing more and more people out of the kinky closet and giving them the chance to experiment with power exchange and S/M.

In this presentation, we will discuss the roots of kink to show how it is a common and natural part of human sexuality. We will learn what BDSM stands for and the basic definitions of the important terms used in this subculture. We will talk about the difference between power exchange and S/M, with an emphasis on how you can practice one without the other or combine them in whatever way you see fit.

Real life BDSM advice from a real-life BDSM practitioner

A key component of this presentation is consent. Consent will be discussed at various points throughout the presentation since it’s such an important part of BDSM culture.

The presentation will be rounded out by real-life stories of BDSM relationships and how they work. The range of options will be shown, from bedroom only kink to 24/7 and total power exchange relationships.

There will also be information about sexual and non-sexual BDSM so that participants can make informed decisions about what style of relationship suits them best.

Common BDSM myths will be dispelled.  Participants will understand the difference between real life BDSM relationships and those we see in movies or read about in books.

Finally, the talk will turn to where to find more information about BDSM. Book and website recommendations will be given as well as information on how to find the kinky community. There will be a brief discussion about the etiquette within the kink community so that participants are well equipped if they decide to join their local groups. We will also talk about kinky dating and where to find partners to explore the lifestyle with.

The most important takeaway for participants is knowing that BDSM is what they make it, within their own relationships. They will know where to find further information and education so that they can build and cultivate their own safe, sane and consensual kinky relationships.
