Max presents "Building Power Through Language and Suggestion"
Words matter. We use them to negotiate, to reinforce, to direct, to persuade, and to control. Our words can build our partners up or we can use words to disempower, to dominate or to acquiesce. This workshop helps you find the right words, based on your intention.

Language matters for both sides of the slash.  Dominants use language to direct a submissive's actions, to shape their thinking, and to reinforce agreed-upon behavior. Submissives use language to convey respect, to acknowledge authority, and to fulfill their responsibility to communicate fully and authentically. Submissives also use language to support their dominants.

The concepts, demonstrations and exercises in this class will help you negotiate more precisely, lead more clearly, and express submission, reverence and devotion more fully.

We'll highlight a variety of ways to utilize language and suggestion as part of your D/S repertoire. The importance of trust and consent will be stressed, and we'll demonstrate and practice ways to increase clarity and valid consent while reducing the risk of going into compliance.  Language helps build a safe container for D/S, and we'll address the various ways to build and maintain headspace, both for the dominant and the submissive. We'll also talk about how both parties can listen better, thereby reducing the risk of miscommunication.

Finally, we'll introduce some hypnotic techniques that can be used to enhance your D/S. Hypnosis isn't a requirement for making your language more powerful, but it's a great addition to these other techniques.

This workshop will include lecture, demos and (optional) exercises. There will be plenty of time for Q&A as well.

This workshop is appropriate for all genders, all orientations, and for tops and bottoms. Please note that much of the material is specifically aimed at bottoms. As with all of Maxs workshops, a handout will be provided to facilitate your learning and retention.

* About Max
Max has been active in Seattle's kink community since 1992 and has been teaching bondage, BDSM, and polyamory workshops since 1999.

While he is proficient with a wide range of BDSM skills, Max especially enjoys the intimacy of rope bondage and the intensity of the singletail. Max projects a gentle, dominant energy, and all of his relationships - and most of his scenes - include a substantial D/S component.

Max's love of teaching shines through his workshops, and his love for people informs his personal encounters.
