Why do some kinksters prefer to identify themselves with a D/s or M/s role and others not? What can they learn from each other? What about change in role identification? What can motivate a change, and how does one's own sense of self, and/or the expectations of others, support or negate that change? Is role definition a relevant aspect in participation in the larger community? Or in current kink thinking / practice?
Come talk about the power dynamic in an open forum, with participants sharing & comparing from both sides of the slash. After the initial discussion, you can join one of the breakout groups (top side, bottom side, or switch) to continue the dialogue in a peer-based group.
Bring your questions, your curiosity, your experiences. Expand your perceptions, do some reality checking. Take away tools that may enhance personal growth and lead to richer experiences - all in a safe and discreet setting.
Discussion will take place at Galleria Domain 2.
To attend, you must be at least 18 years of age & have government-issued photo ID with you.
To R.S.V.P., go to galleriadomain.org/rsvp, make your request & address will be sent w/ confirmation.
There is no cost to attend this event. (Members of GD2 and LRA, however, should bring their membership cards.)
Why are we here?
The face of kink - both in public and in private - has evolved over recent years, with expanding venues both on and off line to pose questions and explore possibilities. Online forums, play / educational events, and social opportunities like munches have burgeoned. Yet being able to explore issues / concerns / ideas in the openness and immediacy of dynamic dialogue with one's fellows remains a valuable, viable resource. And that's our focus- providing that opportunity.
