ONLINE: This Isn't What I Planned! Adapting Kinks to Accommodate Aging and Illness
NOTE: This will be an online class via Zoom. Zoom registration information will be sent to all participants after ticketing.
We all age. Many of us also experience the development of chronic illnesses or disabilities. We can plan for some of the physical changes which come with natural aging or illness, but many of us are unprepared for the ways our body change and the way those changes impact our kinky play.
This Isnt What I Planned! Is a class for anyone experiencing body changes which are now (or may soon) impact their kinky ways. The course will cover how to understand your changing body, resources to help you figure out what changes are in store for you, ways to communicate with your partners about your new or emerging physical needs, and tools for adapting various types of BDSM activities to meet your new bodily limitations and continuing desires to engage in kinky play.
This class includes a lot of information for folks living with chronic pain, joint and muscle limitations, autoimmune disorders, amputations, fatigue, hormonal changes through the life span, and changing responses to pain. Other conditions may be included depending on the interests of the participants.
