ONLINE: Validating Gender and Sexuality Through Animal Roleplay
Please note: This will be a live, online class offered through Zoom.
Animal role play can be a vehicle for stress relief, structure, whimsy - but have you ever felt truly understood? Free to drop societal expectations and simply exist as you are, and experience love in return? This is a gift that animal roleplay can offer.
In this class, we'll discuss how we can harness this play as a means of validating the colorful, often-fluid fabrics of gender and sexuality. You'll discover:
- What animal roleplay is and how it relates to gender and sexuality
- The assumptions and stereotypes attached to different animals and breeds
- What our animal headspace can help us access and explore within ourselves, and why it's important
- Solo animal play techniques for self-connection and validation
- Designing scenes with validation in mind
- Centering validation in our Dynamics
- Negotiation tips
- The benefits of trying out different headspaces
And keep in mind - human animals aren't always submissives, and self-love is for Handlers, too! We'll be highlighting the many unique dynamic structures that can occur in animal roleplay, and how validation is a two-way street that can help everyone involved feel powerful and seen.
