Negotiation Improv is designed to help you workshop and refine how you approach negotiation. No actual play is being negotiated, and this is an opportunity to practice core negotiation skills in a safe and low-pressure environment.
Stop thinking of negotiation as just another part of your pre-scene checklist; instead, practice it as an active skill to develop, just like any other aspect of play! Negotiation Improv is designed to help you workshop and refine how you approach negotiation. No actual play is being negotiated, and this is an opportunity to practice core negotiation skills in a safe and low-pressure environment.
Rather than negotiating for yourself, participants will be given “character cards” prompting you with a list of kinks, likes and dislikes, and limits to negotiate in a “speed-dating” format. Receive tips and feedback on how to develop a confident, thorough, and FUN negotiation style that will help you engage in safe and communicative play!
This class is perfect if you're new to kink and looking to put into practice some of the skills you’ve learned about, even those with more experience looking for a chance to experiment with negotiation style are welcome.
This class occurs 30 minutes after our Welcome to the Scene class, we recommend attending both! Get tickets for Welcome to the Scene here: https://forbiddentickets.com/events/wicked-grounds/50e9bd8f07

Tickets: $20 - $50 in advance, or $30 - $50 at the door. 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 $30. This is what most people should pay.
The $20 ticket is offered for those for whom the $30 ticket would be a barrier to participation. If $30 is too much, we take your word for it! Just pay $20.
Have a great salary? Feeling generous? Paying at the higher level allows us to make discounted ticketing available to others who need it.
So - that's it! Choose the level you can comfortably afford. No one turned away for lack of funds. 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.
