BDSM for Beginners - A Guide for Getting Started

Saturday September 1st, 2007
10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon
at the Gathering in Redmond, Washington

This workshop is designed for folks who are discovering and exploring their kink.  Whether you're drawn to erotic restraint, dominance and submission, or sensation play, this workshop is for you.

Topics to be covered include identifying and getting what you want, various play styles, finding appropriate partners, and developing your skills and style.

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

This workshop assumes no previous BDSM experience, and is appropriate for all genders, all orientations, and for both "tops" and "bottoms".


Bondage 101

Saturday September 1st, 2007
4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
at the Gathering in Redmond, Washington

  • Do you want to add more bondage to your love life?
  • Do you want to build confidence in your rope skills?
  • Do you want to know what kind of rope to add to your toy bag?
  • Are you looking for knots that you can actually remember?

This workshop begins with an overview of rope bondage techniques and materials, with lots of "show and tell" items and pointers on buying appropriate bondage materials.

The remainder of the class is a hands-on workshop in which several useful knots and positions are taught.  By the end of the workshop, you will have some basic skills and will be able to tie up your partner with grace and confidence.

No prior knowledge of bondage or knots is assumed for this class - it's perfectly appropriate for beginners.  This class also works well if you've already done some bondage and want to tune up your technique.

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

If you can, come with a practice partner.  If you don't have a partner, come anyway and we'll make sure you get a chance to practice the basic techniques.  Rope Bottoms - this is your chance to meet some rope tops - come learn and get tied up!

Some rope will be provided for the workshop, but bring a 10-foot length of 3/8- or 1/2-inch rope if you can.
