KINK 101 Class

KINK 101  JULY 19th 7:00PM – 8:30PM, 300 SW 12th AVENUE PORTLAND, OR 97205

Kink and BDSM are all the rage these days, so maybe you’ve read something or seen something that caught your attention but you don’t know where to start in real life. With a little bit of information and know-how, you can introduce kink into your own play right now!

Part of what’s sexy about kink is that it’s a way to communicate about and experiment with new things. Everyone likes a change of pace now and then. And kink presents some wonderful tools for playing with vulnerability and enhancing intimacy and connection.

No idea where to start, or what you’d even enjoy? No problem. This class will give an overview of common kinks and you’ll get a yes/no/maybe list to take home as a starting point to think about what you’d like to try. We’ll also discuss safety, consent, and negotiation and you’ll leave with ideas of how to incorporate a few kinks into your own sex life.

Want to dig even deeper? You’ll leave class knowing where to get more information, including how to get involved in the Portland kink scene.

Class attendees will have a chance to win generous raffle items and will even get a 20% off discount to shop in the store!

As always, there will be time for Q&A, and all ages, genders, and orientations are welcome.

Advance tickets are strongly suggested.  Tickets can be purchased at
