Class Description

In this interactive session, we will discuss the issue of failure (or mistakes) in BDSM communities. Making and learning from mistakes is an important component of success. However, in the culture of S/M, Leather, and BDSM we have placed a significant amount of taboo around failure that doesn't in my view truly recognize the value of failure on our individual paths. This session will discuss this in detail and brainstorm some ways we can change this and set more positive and constructive cultural norms.
