Shedding the Taboo of Kink Education With Youth
Description: Despite reports of increased participation in BDSM/kink activities and relationships among young people, as well as a rise in kink-related popular culture references in a post-50 Shades of Grey world, kink education still tends to be reserved for adults. This workshop will highlight the rationale for kink education for youth ages 15-19 and offer age-appropriate and inclusive lesson plans consistent with the National Sexuality Education Standards.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: identify at least three age-appropriate learning activities or discussion prompts to use with youth ages 15-19 related to BDSM/kink activities and communities.
