ONLINE: Strategies For Switching: Fulfilling Your Diverse Desires
Note: This will be a live, online class offered through Zoom. To participate, you will need to download the free, basic version of the Zoom app before the class!
The term switch has a lot of baggage attached to it in a polarized BDSM community, where you are expected to be a Top or a Bottom, a Master or a Slave but there are a thousand reasons why many of us feel a calling to cross over from time to time while others are born to ride a wide variety of sides of their souls. We will be addressing why people switch (Tops who want to know what it feels like, Slaves who want to serve masochistic Masters, greedy versatile pigs who want it all), strategies to finding play partners or relationship structures (one partner many roles, play partners outside of monogamous relationships, polyamory, swinging, open relationships, self-play), and create ways to check in with ourselves about what our own needs are. Let's look at switching, and see what notions we are ready to embrace, and which need to be switched around.
