BDSM Basics: A Beginner’s Guide to Aftercare

March 17 @ 5:30 pm 7:00 pm PDT

$15 – $25
Violet

This class will be held LIVE online via Zoom — you’ll receive an email with access information beforehand. The class will NOT be recorded. Registration deadline: 3 hours prior to class PST. No day-of cancellations.

Aftercare is an absolute must for being a kink connoisseur. In this workshop with Violet, you will learn the ins and outs of what happens in one’s brain when a kink scene is occurring, and why that makes aftercare so necessary. You’ll learn how to complete the response cycle and create positive and uplifting experiences for your and your partner. Violet will answer questions and cover topics such as:

  • What is aftercare?
  • What are subdrop and domdrop?
  • What happens in the brain during kink scene?
  • How to negotiate your aftercare needs as a submissive
  • Communication tips for expressing your aftercare needs
  • Social implications of prioritizing needs

Violet is a queer, polyamorous sex educator, pleasure coach, and confidante for your sexual adventures. She studied human sexuality studies at Rutgers University and found herself burdened by an irresistible lure of curiosity in all things sex. She spent time working as a sex education teacher at the Masakhane Center in Newark, NJ, facilitating sex positive, youth driven workshops. She now facilitates sex education workshops in New York City, and works with clients 1:1. By merging her education background and personal experience, she learned how to cultivate power through her sexuality. Her mission today is to create a space for others to do the same.
