Cultivating D/S Through Ritual and Protocol

Thursday, January 11, 2018 - 7:00pm - 10:00pm

Workshop fee: $40/person.  Buy your tickets here.

Ritual and protocol are often the most visible manifestations of a Dominant / Submissive interaction.

You can’t see the power exchange, but you can see the collar or the respectful stance, you can hear the language, and you can observe the rules that govern the interactions. These tools help us reinforce tradition, strengthen authority, establish the beginning and ending of scenes, and guide behavior.

Ritual helps us build the container that defines the sacred space for our exchange. It gains power with use, providing comfort and guidance.

Protocol adds formality and gravitas, and helps to shape behavior towards an intention.

And rules are the stuff of D/S fantasy… For many, they are the first tangible way to express a power dynamic.

This workshop will help you understand the role ritual and protocol can play in a D/S dynamic, and will provide tools you can use to define and nourish your own unique connection. There’ll be a few exercises, and some hot demos.

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.
