We'll take a risk-aware approach as we explain gaslighting in psychological play, and how to employ it's language in your own scenes while centering consent and negotiation, including our tips for handling effective check-ins for on-going play.
Do you enjoy playing with reality manipulation, confusion, and dependency in your BDSM play? Would you like a set of tools to bring more depth and intensity to your scenes?
Gaslighting is a set of abusive and insidious tactics that aim to manipulate through causing the victim to doubt their reality. When used consensually in kink, it can be an amazing tool for the darker kinds of psychological kink.
We'll take a risk-aware approach as we explain how gaslighting shows up in our psychological play, and how to employ the language of gaslighting in your own scenes while centering consent and negotiation, including our tips for handling effective check-ins for on-going play.
Besides, you promised you’d come to our workshop, don’t you remember?
This class will be suitable for those already playing with darker themes who want to expand their verbal toolkit and play with reality manipulation more intentionally.

He practices more general kink alongside hypnosis in his daily life and delights in finding new ways to combine them.
