KINK 101: Dating While Kinky
Whether you're doing online dating, speed dating, blind dates, or the million other ways we meet people, it's hard enough to be yourself and just get to know the someone -- or several someones -- best for you.
Add a desire for fetish/ kink/ leather/ BDSM to the mix, and things get even trickier. When do you talk about kink? How do you talk about it? How do you get what you want safely?
In this Kink 101 session, we'll talk about a variety of strategies for navigating the dating world as a kinkster, including:
- Dating resources in the kink community
- Online dating sites/ apps that work for kinksters, and a lot that don't . . .
- How to navigate those first few crucial dates
- Red flags and green lights to watch for
- Basic negotiations
- Choosing Mx. Right Now, and Mx. Right
