BDSM 101 CLASSES


BDSM 101 is a class series that I have been teaching at Sanctuary LAX every Monday evening since 2014.

All BDSM 101 classes (except demo portion which I still teach live and streaming) are available here:

Access to classes online: https://app.gumroad.com/lostnfound?sort=page_layout

I am still teaching the Demo class and hosting the Treasure from the Lostnfound class every month in person.

(See Calendar below)

If you are interested in the whole 101 core series (classes 1-4) I’d suggest attending a live demo if you live in SoCal and watch the rest online. 

Access to classes online: https://app.gumroad.com/lostnfound?sort=page_layout

The series 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.

For the in person classes, the doors will be open at 6:45 to allow some time for socializing/getting settled.  The class will begin at 7 and go for approximately 2 hours.  Including, if time permits, Q & A, or to speak one-on-one with anyone who is interested.

Where: Sanctuary LAX 10914 S. La Cienega Blvd.  Lennox, CA 90304

When: 1st Monday = Demo class and 3rd Monday = Treasure from the Lostnfound class

Cost: $15/class 

WEEK ONE:  Terms and Language: What does it all mean? (avail online)

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! (avail online)

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? (lecture portion is avail online and whole class currently in person)

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 may 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 (avail online)

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.

WEEK FIVE (Treasure from the Lostnfound CLASS): Topic – See Calendar on group page: https://fetlife.com/groups/89185 (only avail in person on 3rd Mondays)

**The Treasure from the Lostnfound class will be followed by the 101 munch! Details coming soon!
