Less experienced folks in the kink scene often think of BDSM as being activities pursued by what are known as Dominants and submissives, or Tops and bottoms. Some other folks know that BDSM is intricately complex and definitely not as cut and dry or “binary” as that idea presents itself. There is a wide spectrum of desires and activities and there is no reason to limit your experiences or access to different types of pleasure! A switch is someone who finds fulfillment in engaging in both Dominant and submissive roles, or both topping and bottoming and each individual can approach switching in kink very differently.
In this workshop we will cover general information about switching. Whether this is something you’ve already done or only dreamed about. We will also discuss tapping into your less instinctive nature in the play space, making transitions in scene, negotiating new forms of play or finding opportunities to play in different ways with self-awareness to set yourself up for steamy, dreamy nasty success! We will also be discussing the fluidity of switching and the nuance around this type of play as well as how to set up boundaries and how to explore the potential evolution of your kink identity, dynamics and needs along the life span.
