Profile Details

Jardinero identifies as queer, Afro-Latino, neurodivergent, polyamorous, and as most importantly “just a lil guy.” They love physical and mental bondage, impact, fear play, power exchange, most things to do with rope and just about anything that combines nerdy with kinky. He approaches kink with a background in martial arts, sword play, and forensic science which defines their particular creative brand of sadism.

1800 Miles: Tools and Stories From A Neurodivergent Dynamic At A Distance

Class Description

Long distance relationships (LDRs) are difficult even for Vanilla and neurotypical people. It’s hard to be away from someone you love, communication styles change, and sleeping alone can feel isolating.


So how as neurodivergent kinksters do we navigate LDRs? Particularly if power exchange is involved?


This class is designed to help you figure that out. Whether you’re navigating a relationship that is beginning before you’ve met in person or if you’re moving apart after years, this class will give you tools.


As a kinky couple of neurodivergent switches with a dynamic that started and remained long distance for over 4 years, we have many ideas on how to engage in kink when your partner isn’t physically available.


This class will focus on successes and failures we have experienced as well as tools, resources, and mindsets helped us maintain and thrive in our exploration of ourselves, each other, and our dynamic.
