Join Bad Girls shiny and Chris for a workshop entitled

From Pen and Paper to the Playspace:
How to Plan the Scene You Mean

– Want to come away from your experiences feeling empowered, not full of self doubt?
– Want to collaborate with your play partners to create a scene to remember?
– Bottoms, does it feel like you don’t know what to do with your hands?
– Tops, do you feel like the only one who knows what’s in the playbook?

During this in-depth discussion and workshop on planning and implementing the scenes you desire, we’ll talk about:

– Specific types of scenes, from heavily scripted to completely reaction-based

– Elements of scene construction to consider in your planning

– Getting real (and specific) with yourself and others about your desires, your needs, and your boundaries

– Understanding your scene as a story with a beginning, middle, and (very) satisfying conclusion

…and pretty much all of your other questions!

We encourage everyone to join us, from newbie to sage. Scene planning can be fun and engaging for tops, bottoms, switches and folks from any “side of the slash”!

Please prepare to actively participate; there will be discussion, roleplay scenarios, and other active learning elements. Introverts are welcome! We’ll do our best to ensure it won’t be terrifying.

This is a latex-inclusive event; if you would like a latex-free play space,
let us know and we will establish one.

One admission price covers both events (attend either or both). Receive a $3 discount with advance purchase through Brown Paper Tickets. << click here

Bonus: This workshop grew out of a Full Moon Friday discussion about how hard it can be to get started with scenes … “what if we just want to do a scene to practice what we’ve just learned?” Scenes for “homework” purposes are one of many that they’ll discuss.

Our Full Moon Friday on November 10th, the night before the workshop, can serve as a companion to this event and/or a free introduction to it, as we discuss “What Makes It Hot?”
