SF/ONLINE: Dating While Kinky

with Miriam Green

In this Kink 101 session, we'll talk about a variety of strategies for navigating the dating world as a kinkster.


Whether you're doing online dating, speed dating, blind dates, or the million other ways we meet people, it's hard enough to be yourself and just get to know the someone -- or several someones -- best for you.

Add a desire for fetish/ kink/ leather/ BDSM to the mix, and things get even trickier. When do you talk about kink? How do you talk about it? How do you get what you want safely?

In this Kink 101 session, we'll talk about a variety of strategies for navigating the dating world as a kinkster, including:

  • Dating resources in the kink community
  • Online dating sites/ apps that work for kinksters, and a lot that don't . . .
  • How to navigate those first few crucial dates
  • Red flags and green lights to watch for
  • Basic negotiations
  • Choosing Mx. Right Now, and Mx. Right


Miriam Green has been in the public kink scene for over one dozen years in the Austin, Houston, and San Francisco scenes. They teach a series of KINK 101 classes on the SF kink community, BDSM negotiations, and dating while kinky. They also are the owner of Wicked Grounds.

This class will be offered both in person at the Trellis in San Francisco, and simultaneously as a live, online class offered through Zoom. Please select SF or online tickets when purchasing.

Please note: This class is available for free to Wicked Grounds Patreon members who are subscribed at the VIP level ($30/month or higher). If you are a current Patreon member at that level, please reach out to to be put on the guest list. You may select one Kink 101 class per month for this benefit. Want to join? Go to to sign up!

$15 - $35 in advance, or $20 - $40 at the door for in-person attendance.

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.
