About the Event
In the first part of this virtual event, you will hear directly from Erin what has been happening behind the scenes at SPLA. Attendees can ask questions, pitch event ideas, and meet fellow members at this casual virtual event.
The second part of this event features a special guest to share their knowledge about a specific topic in the realm of sexuality, sensuality, body positivity, consent/boundaries, dating, intimacy, relationships and other related topics.
Our special guest for Wed, Sept 29 is Certified Sexuality Educator, and host of the American Sex podcast, Sunny Megatron. Sunny’s chosen topic of discussion for this hour-long conversation is ‘BDSM Scene Negotiation & Psychological Play,’ where we’ll explore the strategic side of kink play and D/s relationships. Here’s what she says about this topic…
“BDSM education often focuses on technical, hard skills--how to flog, tying rope bondage safely, learning proper spanking technique, etc. Mastery of soft skills, however, is just as critical but often looked over. Navigating consent, scene negotiation, and engaging in psychological play like humiliation requires proficiency in soft skills--effective communication, flexibility, problem-solving skills, self-awareness, ethics, and more.”
This event will be townhall/Q&A style, so bring your questions! See you there🤗
