BDSM 101 

Curious about BDSM and want to know more? Maybe you’ve always wanted to come to a dungeon but have been to shy? Want to learn more about your sexual power as a domme, switch or sub? Come to class!

BDSM 101 with Mistress Justine Cross, a professional dominatrix based in Los Angeles. This class will be an all-skill-level introduction that focuses on safe, sane, consensual play and sexual exploration. As such, the skills shared can be applied to all relationships, “kinky” or “vanilla,” and will help us all find ways to explore and discuss desire, fetish, and sexual interests in an open manner. There will also be a Q and A when the class can pose kinky questions for the Mistress.

All classes are 18+.

We will go over:

*What BDSM is and is not
*Consent
*How to negotiate a scene
*What happens before, during and after a scene
*Explore the dungeon – what is equipment and toys
