My Kinky Valentine

Monday, February 10th, 4 p.m., Kirkhof Center 2215/2216

In this interactive presentation we will explore the world of consensual power exchange. We will attempt to demystify BDSM/Kink and explore how in some ways we all play with power every day! We will also discuss issues of safety and consent as well as how to differentiate kinky play from abuse. From 24/7 Dominant/submissive relationships to weekend "scenes" all of your questions will be explored!
