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:
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.

$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.
This class will be taught out of Trellis in San Francisco, and will simultaneously be offered as a live, online class through Zoom.
