SM 101: The ABCs CANCELLED Friday May 1st
Please excuse the late notice. We have just learned that Youthco will be closed from Friday night through the weekend. An exterminator will be fumigating the building early Friday evening, and while both the presenter, Reive Doig, and Kink 101 Presents are fans of breath control, attending a seminar in a toxic environment probably isn’t the safest introduction to it.
The workshop will be rescheduled at the earliest opportunity.
To learn more about the rescheduling, or about other Kink 101 Presents seminars you can email the organizer and/or join his mailing list by emailing the organizer Ilya at at firstname.lastname@example.org

Topics covered will include an overview of what is (and what is not) involved, consent and negotiation, basic techniques, psychological aspects, safety measures, commonly used items of equipment, and aftercare.
