ONLINE: RACK Me Up: Risk Awareness for Bondage
NOTE: This will be an online class via Zoom. Zoom registration information will be sent to all participants after ticketing.
Risk Aware Consensual Kink (RACK) is outpacing Safe, Sane, and Consensual (SSC) as a model for What It Is That We Do (WIITWD) and soon acronyms may take over BDSM completely! While theres a lot of lip service paid to the concept, are we really practicing RACK? We spend a lot of time talking about the consent part (rightfully), and kink is pretty much a given. However, risk awareness is often assumed.
Shay will build this session around self-assessment questions about many aspects of bondage safety and risk mitigation, and use these as an outline to discuss risk awareness, from specific health considerations to vetting your partner. They will also discuss the science on human risk evaluation (spoiler alert: we suck at it, but can learn to be better), and the distinction between hazards, risks, and things that are scary. Rather than promoting one true way, they will encourage you to develop your individual risk tolerance profile and budget your risk. Folks interested in all aspects of rope (tying, being tied, self-tying, etc) are welcome to attend.
