Domination-Submission Workshop (DsW)

Workshop Summary

Domination-Submission Workshop This 3-day workshop will help you understand and explore the world of domination and submission (D/s play), which is an aspect of BDSM.

Through direct instruction, playful exercises, and abundant practice with your fellow participants, DsW will help you explore your interest in D/s in a judgment-free environment. You'll learn how to make sense of the many options of D/s play, find and attract play partners, introduce D/s play to existing relationships, and fully embrace your role as a Dom, sub, or switch.

A powerful side benefit of DsW (and all workshops offered through this website) is that you'll make new friends right at the workshop. Even if you consider yourself to be fairly shy (which is especially common for subs), DsW provides many structured social exercises to make it easy for you to connect with people. And who knows... you may even meet a new play partner right at the workshop.

Some attendees report that at least 50% of the value of these workshops comes from the amazingly positive social environment and the new friends they make.
