This class will be a moderated discussion about what fulfills us, on both sides of the “slash”, to live in 24/7 relationship that exchanges authority; why we do it, what the joys are, as well as the challenges we may face along the way.
When I chose to live within a Master/slave Relationship, I embarked on a path filled with joy, challenge, learning, and growth. This class will be a moderated discussion about what fulfills us, as participants on both sides of the “slash”, to live in 24/7 relationship that exchanges authority. We will look at why we do it, what the joys are, as well as some of the challenges we may face along the way.

Tickets: $15 - $35 in advance. Please pay at the level you can comfortably afford.
We offer a sliding scale, so that cost is not a barrier to attendance.
The regular ticket is $25. This is what most people should pay.
The $15 ticket is offered for those for whom the $25 ticket would be a barrier to participation. If $25 is too much, we take your word for it! Just pay $15.
Have a great salary? Feeling generous? Paying at the $35 level allows us to make the discounted ticketing available to others who need it.
So - that's it! Choose the level you can comfortably afford.
If cost is a barrier at any point on the sliding scale, please use the Volunteer List at the bottom of the listing to request a scholarship seat.
