Effective Negotiations with AJ Renard

March 26 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

$5 – $10

Class Description

Navigating negotiations can be difficult, especially if one (or both) people are new to it. The negotiation part of any scene or relationship is incredibly important, but is often passed over quickly because, let’s face it, it’s just not as fun as the other stuff! However, being able to effectively negotiate and frame a scene or Power Exchange dynamic can keep both people safe and help prevent confusion and frustration in the future. We will discuss the importance and impact of an effective negotiation, different types of negotiation, and tools for navigating a negotiation when there is a significant experience or power differential.

Presenter Bio

AJ Renard (she/her) has been involved in the BDSM world her entire adult life, although she was a dark little thing far before that. AJ works in the mental health field and has a deep passion for teaching about BDSM and consent. She finds her happy place when there is rope, electricity, knives, boots, fear, and a lot of crying involved. In her limited free time she makes custom chainmaille for her shop, Foxy Feisty Redhead. AJ teaches a variety of classes about consent, negotiations, perspectives on D/s, bottoming for intense scenes and edgeplay, mental health and BDSM, and behavioral science in PE dynamics. She also loves demo bottoming for Violet Wand demos, and things that make her shy in front of groups of people.
