Accepting Service with Grace – WHIMPER Munch
June 23, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
At the May WHIMPER munch, I’ll be teaching Accepting Service with Grace. Later that evening, at the play party, I’ll be doing my Service Dates demo!
Munch class description:
In our Western culture that both expects and prizes self-sufficiency, the idea of someone else doing something for us can make us cringe. It carries connotations of, at best, taking advantage of the other person and, at worst, weakness. But accepting help — accepting service — is much more complex than these connotations would have you believe.
Within our kink culture, particularly in terms of d/s, service is a cornerstone for many relationship models. (Also, it’s pretty fucking hot!) But it is often a struggle for d-types (and s-types who are in a situation where they are being served) to accept service without feeling (or being) awkward and self-conscious.
Join us as we discuss why accepting service can be uncomfortable, why it can be very important within a relationship — both d/s and egalitarian, and, perhaps most important, how to accept service with grace.
