Medication Mitigation: Pharmaceutical intersection with BDSM

Class Description

Medication use, both prescriptively and recreationally, affects the physiology of our minds and bodies in a way that cannot be considered negligible in the practice of kink. In this class, Tora Vorare will provide a guide on how to negotiate medication use and medical conditions in ways that preserve the dignity and privacy of our play partners. Additionally, they will provide an overview of medication classes to be aware of and how to adjust risk profiles accordingly. Lastly, they will hone in on the importance of mental health medication considerations. From signs of lithium overdose to side effects of antidepressants, this class will provide applicable  pharmaceutical information from an experienced professional that can be contextualized in the BDSM setting.
