BDSM 101 is a class series that will meet at Sanctuary LAX every Monday evening and repeat every four weeks with an Expansion class and Support Group in between. (See Calendar below) It is geared toward those interested in, or are new to, the BDSM community.  The BDSM scene can be overwhelming for someone just getting involved.  There are so many things to learn, discover, and experience.  The classes will cover basic topics to help you understand and navigate the scene as well as gather tips and information about safety and play.

The doors will be open at 7:30 to allow some time for socializing.  The class will begin at 8 and go for approximately 2 hours.  Including, if time permits,  Q & A, or to speak one-on-one with anyone who is interested.  The Expansion class is $15 and not a part of the pre-pay discount. The support group is also 8-10pm and only $10.

WEEK ONE:  Terms and Language: What does it all mean?

This class goes over terms and language used in the BDSM community.  Some terms may also be used in the vanilla (aka non-kinky) world, yet have a different meaning in this community.  (like the word “vanilla” – perfect example!  lol)  This class will be the foundation for future learning and simply being able to have a conversation with others without getting lost in the language or confused by meaning.

WEEK TWO:  Safety: Play AND People!

This class is all about the very important topic of safety.  This class will cover basic physical safety when you play (as a bottom and/or a top) as well as safety during interactions with others.  This includes issues when you are dating in the scene and meeting people on-line.  Basic rules for negotiation will also be covered.

WEEK THREE:  Toys and Tools: What Are They and How do I Use Them?

LIVE DEMO!! This class will go over various toys/tools/implements and basic information about how to use them.  From different ways to use your bare hands to fun things like crops and floggers!  We will also cover basic protocol (common courtesy) when you are playing – or watching others play – publicly.

There will also be a vendor there if you are looking to start or expand your toy bag!

WEEK FOUR:  D/s (Dominant/submissive) dynamic: It’s not all about Play

This class discusses the D/s dynamic that, for many people in the community, is a part of their relationship.  Play and kinky sex can be a part of that dynamic, however, it can go much deeper than that.  This class is about the power exchange between Dominant and submissive and the most common types of D/s relationships in the community.
