To Serve and To Receive - The Basics
Service is often a part of a Leather/Kink Relationship and can look many different ways. Are you drawn to serve or to receive service in a hierarchical exchange? In this class, we will discuss the basics of giving and receiving service. Tomo will provide an outlined path to help you define for yourself what might work for you as the person receiving service and the person offering it. We will discuss basic skills from both sides of service and feelings that may come up in doing so.
