Defeat the Weasels: Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria and D/s w/ Meredith

March 19 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Class Description

Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria is a little-understood aspect of ADHD that frequently co-occurs with anxiety. For submissives in relationships where behavior correction may be part of daily life, the extreme emotional responses prompted by RSD can be even worse pain than a physical punishment. For Dominants with RSD, the roller coaster ride of negative thoughts can damage self-confidence and the trust that is essential to safe play. Finding ways to listen to your partner instead of your brain weasels is a great reward personally and within the dynamic.

Presenter Bio

Meredith has been doing kinky stuff for nearly 25 years. She identifies as queer, deaf, polyamorous, a masochist, an s-type, Leather, and an educator – not in order, but all at once. She has taught at events online and along the East Coast, and enjoys finding the serious and silly edges of possibility.
