Have you fantasized about rough sex, about taking control of your lover, about relinquishing yourself to the will of a partner, about the intersection of pain and pleasure? Do you long to experience the sensuality of bondage, or perhaps the emotional thrill of role-playing? Perhaps you’ve had these fantasies for your entire life and had no idea such wild fantasies could ever be manifested. It could be you’ve read some hot fiction and thought “Yes. This, this is what I need!” It may well be you’ve been too cautious or hesitant to explore them because you’ve been taught “Only abusers hit people!” or “If you’re submissive you are an emotional doormat.” or “People who engage in BDSM are damaged and emotionally unsafe.”

Join long-time practitioner of Kink, BDSM and member of the Leather Community Mollena Williams, who identifies as a selective submissive, feminist, power slave, masochist, educator and Executive Pervert. Sexually liberated since her first high school relationship where she explored polyamory and openly kinky since 1993, she travels the world speaking to the kinky and the kink-curious on topics ranging from the basics of negotiation to extreme “edge-play.” This class will help introduce you to some of the groundwork you may wish to undertake before diving into BDSM, ways to examine your own desires and motivations, finding and flirting with potential partners, negotiating for success, and advice about some of the challenges my may well encounter in your journey. Come explore in a safe and relaxed conversation, bring your questions and curiosities and leave you inhibitions at the door!
