Kinky Dating

June 13 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT

Dating can be challenging, add BDSM to the mix and it can be downright intimidating. Learn how to confidently navigate the kink dating scene

Dating can be challenging, add BDSM to the mix and it can be downright intimidating. In this workshop, we will identify and learn to implement effective strategies for meeting kinky people. Through self-reflection, we will figure out who we are and what our ideal relationship looks like. By looking at different relationship styles and different kink orientations, participants will be able to discover what they want from a relationship and who they are looking for in a partner.

This workshop will discuss common dating roadblocks and how to overcome them. Subjects such as confidence, starting conversations, how to handle mistakes, and some kink-specific situations will be addressed. Participants will learn how to make a good impression at social events and how to go to where the kinky people are – both online and IRL.

There will be a focus on dating in a kinky context, including red flags to look out for from a top/Dominant, sub/Bottom and switch perspective. You will learn how to recognize fantasists who are not ready to meet in person – and how to stop looking like one too!

We will cover a few different dating styles, including community involvement and online dating so that participants can use the approach that works best for them and their unique situation. Tips will be given throughout the workshop, including tips for neuroatypical people, shy people and those who need a confidence boost.

This workshop is presented in gender-neutral terms and is suitable for people of all genders, orientations and kink preferences.

Presenter Bio:

Morgan Thorne has been practising BDSM all her adult life. She got an introduction to kink through the Queer community in the early 1990s and knew she had found ‘her people’.

Morgan has also spent a decade working as a Professional Dominant, which has allowed her to expand her skills as both a Top and a Dominant. Morgan has been offering workshops, lectures and BDSM training for a number of years as well. She has a successful Youtube channel where she educates about D/s relationships, BDSM basics and various kinky skills.

She is the author of two successful books about BDSM, including “Exploring BDSM: A Workbook for Couples (or More!) Discovering Kink“. A follow-up book is expected in early 2021.

Morgan identifies as both a Sadist and a Dominant. She enjoys playing with a variety of people of all orientations/genders/identities. BDSM is an integral part of her personal, romantic relationships. Morgan is both asexual and pan-romantic.

Prior to her work as a Professional Dominant, Morgan worked in health care. This has allowed her to gain a more thorough understanding of health and safety concerns in kink. She retired due to an injury that lead to chronic pain and disability. It also spurred her interest in medical play, a way to continue to use the skills she learned in health care and to find comfort in the loss of a much-loved career.

Morgan has been active in various forms of activism, including LGBTQIA rights and sex worker rights. She is a strong advocate for equality and the human rights of all people.
