Clear communication is challenging for most people, and just because you’re kinky doesn’t necessarily make it easier or more obvious how to do it. Issues of consent, boundaries, desire and basic needs can make or break a scene.

As a top or dominant, being in driver's seat doesn’t mean you know what to say at all times. Porn makes it look easy — just boss ‘em around — but in the real world, there are feelings, needs and moments of not being 100% super domly-dom. What do you do when you’re feeling uncertain but you don’t want to break your role? How do you get your bottom or sub to share necessary info they’re shy about, or are afraid might disappoint you? How can you know for sure that the places you’re pushing your bottom are places they actually want to go?

On the flip side, we bottom for all sorts of reasons: to feel small, to feel powerful, to feel controlled, to fly and more. The yearning to turn yourself completely over to another is compelling. In an ideal world, you could surrender and just know that your top or dom has it all figured out. Sadly, mind-reading rarely works. As a bottom, sub or slave, you still need to communicate, especially as you go further into the reaches of your play.

The good news is that you can work all kinds of communication into your dynamic, and leave your play feeling happy, connected, satiated and eager for more.

In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn a ton of easy-to-use tools for maintaining a delicious power dynamic on both sides of the slash, while using your words, communicating limits and boundaries, and giving necessary feedback, for the best play possible.
