Days in service! Nights in bondage! A never-ending stream of erotic titillation! It all sounds pretty exciting, doesn’t it? Well, the reality of 24/7 doesn’t look much like the fantasy… but for those who deeply desire it, 24/7 D/s can be one of the most intimate and rewarding forms of relationship. This workshop covers the basics: figuring out your motivations and values, the mechanics of 24/7 dynamics, communication methods and protocols, typical challenge points, and ways to explore and grow within your dynamic. Expect to go home with plenty of questions to think about later! Appropriate for people considering 24/7 as well as those already in 24/7 relationships.
