2016/03/30 | Workshop “BDSM vs. Abuse” – NECSE

Kink info - NECSE-16

A post in English because the presentation was in English.
Why in English? Well, because the audience was European!
ifmsa.nl/projecten/necse

80 sex educators from all over Europe were trained by Kinkinfo.nl in recognizing BDSM from abuse, talking about BDSM and experiencing a bit of ‘hands-on’ (pun intended) bondage and spanking.
Can you imagine?

  • 40 people running around in bondage while giggling and smiling all the time?
  • wrist bondages tied to tables and people having fun
  • people practicing plank-, whip- and cupped hands on each others bums
  • people smiling while smacking each other respectfully
  • “are you a thuddy guy?”… followed by “here, let me give you some :-)”
  • people asking personal and really really good questions such as “am I able to see something that you are in a BDSM-relation?” (about preconceptions and learning to what observe)
  • people shouting out: “that’s way to regular, that can’t be abuse!”
  • …imagine people being kink aware and having fun AND being very professional

We’ll post some pictures later on when they come in.

People have commented us on the level of information and the way we did convey the message. And we have loved it to present that BDSM can be fun, can be serious, can be distinguished from abuse and mental disorder.

Giving trainings like these we hope to given ideas to conceptualize the different axes that can be found inside the BDSM/kink communities ( even tho they sometimes are not all that open between themselves LOL ) and how talk about risk awareness (next to consent) and we hope give words and conceptual axes to talk about when one talks about Kink and BDSM with clients…
And we think we are safe to say that we succeeded! (and had fun)  😀
