In this upcoming Meetup with Meriana Dinkova and guest presenter Ian Snow, we will explore the darker side of sexuality - BDSM & kink.
Some of the topics that will be addressed will be dominance and submission, control and restraint, intentional giving and receiving of pain, kink, fetish, and the like as part of sexual play.
Prepay on Meetup until Jan 14th to get the $20 Meetup discount. The price goes up to $25 on the 15th. Door price is $25-$35 sliding scale
Our exploration will consist of lecture, group sharing, a few experiential exercises, and perhaps (if the Ian's girlfriend is around) a demo.
If the subject is new to you, be prepared to have your horizons expanded, and your options for exciting sex play widened, in an exciting and fun walk on the wild side;)
