Responsible Bottoming for Everyone

August 22, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Event Navigation

Contrary to what it may sometimes seem, bottoms are not just interchangeable bodies whose only responsibilities are listing limits, taking pain and safe wording. A great bottom can help a top get more out of a scene, elevate a scene from good to great, and even open the door to edgier types of play.

honey will begin by discussing what can make an experience a great one for both the top and the bottom, and what you can do to enhance the experience, even if you’re not the one throwing rope or a whip. We’ll move on to talk about types of effective negotiation and communication during scenes, as well as ways to protect yourself and what to do if things go awry. We will examine everything from light pickup play to safely exploring heavier and edgier play, and various types of consent models. Regardless of what you’re interested in, honey will help you to be a more informed partner, as well as to develop the tools you need in order to foster an amazing scene–from the bottom!
