An intensive and interactive workshop...the first in our 12 step training and certification programme...where we will cover the basics of first aid and general rules of safety for BDSM play.

We look at the core theoretical principles of BDSM with regards to safety, aftercare and more. In a safe environment we take you step-by-step through the things you need to do when things go wrong during play, and how to use these skills in other areas of your life.

Just bring yourself…everything else will be provided.

PLEASE NOTE that you will work with a partner, either your own (if you have booked as a couple) or you will be put with another single person. Whether you are dominant or submissive, each person will experience how to do first aid on another person, and what it feels like when done on yourself. If you are not prepared to “receive” and partake in the class, then this course is not for you!

You will receive a free First Aid bag, with some basic equipment and all sorts of literature pertaining to safety and first aid and BDSM in general.
