This lesson is about the psychology of safewords, the various safewording methods, how to effectively use them and more.
Everyone knows about safewords, don't they? Well, it turns out that most people only have a general grasp of the concept, while they totally ignore the really important parts. This lesson is about the psychology of safewords; the various safewording methods; how to effectively use them; what really to do if one is called; how to manage the aftermath of a derailed session; how actually safe they are; dealing with a safeword violation and more.
Ayzad is a reformed journalist, a writer, and an alternative sexuality educator. He has been practicing kink for over 30 years now and Ayzad is the pseudonym under which in 2004 he wrote BDSM – A Guide for Explorers of Extreme Eroticism, where he collected everything he had learned from his studies of a truly endless topic. That manual became a best seller, starting collaborations with sexologists and scholars who drew him to extend his research to every form of unusual sexuality.
The results include five other books so far (four of them currently available in Italian only, sorry!), a podcast, a radio show, two video series, countless lectures and teaching collaborations. Today, education to ethical kink is Ayzad's full-time job. Among his attempts to make the world a nicer place he also launched The Sexual Explorers Manifesto initiative, and he is a coach helping people solve their unusual sexuality issues.
Ayzad.com was born to collect and share his daily discoveries about the lesser known aspects of sex, to have fun together and – as it always happens with these things – to better know ourselves. It is apparently working, given that he was listed among the world’s best sex bloggers.
