Mental Health and BDSM – 101
Can you recognize Mental Health and do you know how to manage it, for yourself or your play partner?
EternalAngel is passionate about Mental Health and the role it plays in the BDSM world and our lives in everyday life. This is a chance to learn how to recognize the unseen and understand the potential minefield with any player regardless of how they identify, where to get appropriate help when need be, how to negotiate Mental Health as part of your scene or relationship, aftercare, and the risks in mind fucking with Mental Health.
Mental Health and BDSM – 202
How does Mental Illness affect us in BDSM and Kink
Continuing on from Mental Health and BDSM 101, this workshop focuses on specific types of Mental Illness and how it can affect individuals within kink both within a scene and in a relationship – ways to support them and a discussion on self care.
You do not need to attend the 101 class to attend the 202 class, however a basic level of knowledge will be assumed.
How to play with Someone’s Partner
Personal Responsibility as a S-Type
Playing with the Sadist
Recognising an Abusive Relationship in Kink
Negotiations with a Newbie (As a Top or a Bottom)
Met someone new? Want to play with them but you aren’t sure how to introduce them to kink or what to ask them? Having an experienced player guide the negotiation always helps, but what happens if you are just as new or just starting out in your journey?
This is an open discussion class about safety, red flags, reading a situation and asking the right questions to form a set of negotiations that work for you and your potential partner.
One Relationship, Two Relationship…More!
As someone who has lived with an idea of monogamy and unsure of how polygamy could work for herself, EternalAngel has grown to realize that she lives a much more polygamous life that she thought.
Focusing on the basis of a relationship and different ways to view both relationships, this is an opportunity for those that enjoy either path to discuss and learn about the other side – gaining perspective on the pros and cons of each and how different (or not) these types of relationships are.
Kink in the Daily
In our everyday ‘default’ lives, we need to consider employment, family, children and various other curious minds about the lives we live ‘behind closed doors’. This workshop is all about bringing the BDSM into your everyday life in ways that won’t seem suspicious to the outside looking in.
Learn how to add elements of what you crave without raising eyebrows, satisfying you and not upsetting the status quo.
Identifying as a Switch, EternalAngel will take you through the life of a Switch as she lives, and also ways that others live. This class isn’t just for those that Switch, but for those that want to learn about what a Switch is, and the differences that you need to consider when playing with one, no matter how you identify. This is an open forum for everyone to add their experiences and learn from one another.
Pitfalls of being a Dominant
As people step from the ‘default’ world into BDSM, there is an unspoken initiation for each of us as we start to find where we fit and how we identify. In particular, there is a mental series of obstacles that many Dominants need to overcome to find that place there they are happy in themselves.
Come along, to learn about those blocks as a Dominant and how to overcome them, or join me to look at ways to help your Dominant ease the transition.
Ways of Communication, overcoming the D/s barrier
Learning to communicate as Dom and sub can be challenging to say the least. But it is an integral part of the relationship and growing together as a couple.
This is a workshop for both couples and singles to learn different ways to communicate and strengthen an existing or potential relationship/s in a D/s dynamic and as individuals without feeling the pressure that you can’t speak up because of a role or title you identify with.
Anticipation & Emotional Play
There is nothing better than…………..
Making someone sit on the edge of their seat or tense their body awaiting the next *thing* that is coming. Anticipation and emotional play can be built before play, during play and even after play, or part of your daily dynamic. Learn how to toy and torment in risk aware way, with your bottom to increase and intensify your time with them and read when things are becoming too easy or too hard.
