Negotiation is everyone’s responsibility regardless of whether you are top, bottom or switch. But knowing where to start and how to finish can be a bit daunting. Understanding what is important to you is usually one of those things you don’t find out without experience.
In this class Aleni discusses the elements of good negotiation, the use of safewords and the practical meaning of consent. With a background spanning decades she shares her understanding and experience of the importance of negotiating play and how to negotiate whether you are just starting to get to know each other, or maybe you are negotiating some pick up play at a party.
Using a technique that can be done in less than 5 minutes she can show you how to make sure you cover all the elements of a thorough negotiation and give you her insight in what Tops really need to know to play safely and responsibly for those ‘in the moment’ situations. And, if you are a bottom, her practical suggestions will help you articulate your limits or concerns, identify warning flags and provide you with a framework that is easily remembered.
