This event has passed.

Dominant/submissive relationships can be supremely satisfying: you get all the love and mutual support of any good relationship, plus all the power that's implicit in D/S.

They're not easy though.

D/S requires mad skills, goodwill, self-awareness, and a willingness to be transparent and vulnerable.

Max has been doing consensual, deliberate, D/S since 1992. Not surprisingly, he has a lot to say about the topic.

* Workshop structure

This workshop helps you identify what you want from D/S, and provides advanced skills and resources for finding and nurturing your ideal D/S relationship.

As with all of Max's workshops, a handout will be provided to facilitate your learning and retention.

* Who should attend?

This workshop assumes no previous BDSM experience and is appropriate for all genders, all orientations, and for both tops and bottoms.

It's part of the D/S Series Max has delivered periodically since 2013. Each class in the series can be taken independently; there are no prerequisites for any of the classes.

* Afterwards

Attendees will receive a handout full of principles, technique, and resources.

This is the first of a series of D/S classes, delivered roughly once per month.  Upcoming topics in the series will likely include:

  • Giving and Receiving Service
  • Cultivating D/S through Ritual and Protocol
  • D/S Training: How to Train and Be Trained
  • Building Power Through Language and Suggestion
  • Manifesting D/S Through Role Play
  • Top Ten Skills for Successful D/S
  • The Many Faces of D/S
  • Constructing Successful D/S Scenes: Using What You Have to Get What You Want

* Cancellation / refund policy

If you cancel your registration up to 2 hours before the event you will receive a full refund.

If we cancel the event you will receive a 100% refund, to include ticketing fees.


* About Max


Max has been active in Seattle's kink community since 1992 and has been teaching bondage, BDSM, and polyamory workshops since 1999.

While he is proficient with a wide range of BDSM skills, Max especially enjoys the intimacy of rope bondage and the intensity of the singletail. Max projects a gentle, dominant energy, and all of his relationships - and most of his scenes - include a substantial D/S component.

Max's love of teaching shines through his workshops, and his love for people informs his personal encounters.
