Effective and Affectionate Dominance – Full Day Intensive by Cross
Being the dominant partner in a relationship is about far more than knowing how to throw a flogger or order someone around. Dominance is a responsibility and requires a commitment to both personal development and ethical leadership. This full day intensive will address the following topics:
“Serving Your Partner as a Dominant” is about understanding that everyone in a healthy power-exchange relationship is ultimately in service to one another. Based partially on the work and writing of Robert Greenleaf and Master Skip Chasey, this course delves into the challenges of ethical leadership and maintaining a balance that prevents dominance from becoming abusive.
“Defining and Refining Submissive Roles” is Cross’s most popular workshop. This workshop will cover the results of a study detailing the motivations and desires of people who identify as “submissive”. The primary purpose will be to arm dominants with the information necessary to identify these traits in a submissive and to adjust accordingly.
“Protocol, Rules, Assignments, and Orders” will differentiate between different ways of exercising dominant authority. Understanding the differences between them and how to effectively use them is essential to living D/s.
“Training and Conditioning a Submissive” will explain one approach to the training of a submissive partner. Based heavily on theories of behavioral psychology, the class will teach theory and techniques for how to modify behavior and to foster and encourage their personal growth through training.
