Workshops - Queer Kinky Wheel of Consent

Building consent awareness within a queer and kinky context

In a queer kinky context how do we consciously negotiate consent, notice our habits around consent, and become aware of when we’re moving
outside consent into non-consensual behaviours like compliance, martyrdom, selfishness and perpetration?

Betty Martins ‘Wheel of Consent’ is a remarkable tool that enables us to deeply explore consent, types of touch, embodiment and intimate interaction.

As such it lends itself exceptionally well to the exploration of the power dynamics active in the world of ‘kink,’ where power is an integral part of intimate interaction.

One could also argue that power is at play in all human interactions, so even though we will explore through the lens of kink, this type of work is invaluable in the larger realm of human relating.

In this workshop, using the BDSM concepts of Service Top, Bottom, Top, Power Bottom, Dominant, Submissive, we will explore the intimate exchange of power between people, and how it can be used in overt/consensual and covert/non-consensual ways.

We will also explore consent in the context of negotiation before intimacy, including building awareness of the power differential inherent in the construct of gender. For example how to communicate with an intimate partner, without making assumptions about their gender experience or identity, or how they may reference or relate to different body parts.

This is an embodiment workshop so we will examine how it feels when we are in consent, within our own body, and when touching another, and how it feels when we’re out of consent, within our own body, and when touching another.

We will activate knowing when we have an authentic yes to something, how to know when it’s a clear no, and what happens if it’s a no and we carry on regardless.

We will put these explorations into practice using some simple BDSM practices: 1) basic rope play and 2) using ones body, eye contact and voice to play with domination and submission.

This workshop is open to all genders and will include partner work involving touch.
Nudity is welcome, as is being fully or partially clothed.
