Feminist Study Group, you say? What is that? This isn’t your average study group, we are not prepping for the Chemistry final or the Psych quiz but rather….
we will be reading social justice texts and discussing them!

3) Kink 101 
Curious about BDSM? Passionate about consent? Bored with your sex life? Kink 101 is an amazing workshop lead by the co-founder and director of the Center for Sex Positive Culture, Allena Gabosch. Allena has been active in the Seattle BDSM and polyamory communities for many years. She has led countless workshops and frequently speaks at local colleges. In this workshop, we will explore consent, boundaries and safety using the approach of BDSM and kink, as well as giving an introduction to kink. The negotiation methods used in BDSM can be used in all types of sexual activity! Curious newcomers, experienced kinksters, and consent loving “vanilla” (non-kinky) folks will all find something in this workshop.

This is a free event and will cover boundary setting, communication during, before, and after sex, incorporating safer sex in a fun and confident way, and general sex tips. Join us to learn how to be a better partner and get what you want out of sex!
