Event description


Join Max for this unique opportunity to fine tune your D/S desires and build your D/S skills. We'll also discuss ways to find and nurture your ideal D/S relationship.

Dominant/submissive relationships can be supremely satisfying: you get all the love and support of any good relationship, plus all the extra depth that's implicit in D/S.

They're not easy though. D/S requires mad skills, goodwill, self-awareness, and a deep, mutual willingness to be transparent and vulnerable.

This workshop helps you identify what you want from D/S, and provides advanced skills and resources for finding and nurturing your ideal D/S relationship.

We'll also talk about service - a close cousin to D/S, but with its own unique characteristics. Many kinksters love the idea of service, but struggle to make it work. That's not surprising - giving and accepting service requires a different toolset than sensation-based S/M or power-based D/S. Service can be part of a D/S relationship, or it can stand on its own. We'll address both models.

Max has been doing consensual, deliberate, D/S since 1992. Not surprisingly, he has a lot to say about the topic. Topics to be covered include:

- Terminology and nomenclature

- D/S models and archetypes

- Training

- Rules and protocol

- Punishment

- Proposing a D/S relationship from the bottom

- Proposing a D/S relationship from the top

- Offering and utilizing submission

- Giving and receiving service

This workshop assumes no previous BDSM experience and is appropriate for all genders, all orientations, and for both dominants and submissives. As always, the emphasis is on learning and having fun.

Duration 5.5 hours + 1.5 hours for lunch

Cost (per person)


$80/person for couples / triads / moresomes

As with all of Max's workshops, a handout will be provided to facilitate your learning and retention.
