Kink in its many forms is a sub-community and/or interests that many individuals across the sexual spectrum have enjoyed throughout human history, yet to this day, it remains a mystery to many people. Too often, there is a lot of misinformation about what “Kink” is/isn’t which further alienates people who have not yet had the opportunity to experience it as well as those who might have had a negative experience with it, and so, we have put together “Get Kinky” – a four-part community-organized online series to introduce, learn, discuss and demonstrate what Kink is.

This will be a safe environment for you no matter what your experience level with kink play is. We plan to have guest practitioners, experienced in some of the facets of kink and hope to make your experience fun, and informative.
