If you have ever had a scene that lured you with the promise of edgy intensity,but wondered if you could handle the situation before, during or afterward, thisdiscussion is for you. We will explore the reasons some people enjoy play that isvery edgy psychologically, emotionally and physically, and how you can go aboutmaking that fantasy a reality. Inherent in this discussion is the level ofresponsibility of both/all partners, how to manage risk, and how you can supportyour partner in the aftermath.
Edgy play can be hot, and we will look at ways to avoid some common pitfalls, aswell as how to recover with grace and honor when things go off of the plannedpath.
PLEASE BE ADVISED: Some highly controversial scenes (i.e. racial or incest play,weaponry, etc.) will be discussed. Please do not attend if these are outside ofyour comfort zone.
