TES Presents: Consent in Power Exchange Panel Discussion, moderated by Ramon
November 15, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Come join us as we continue this conversation started at the joint TES/NCSF Consent Summit! We will discuss the obstacles we all face within our power exchange identities and relationships. Panelist to be announced.
Some topics for discussion:
How do you negotiate for power play in a play scene vs in a long-term relationship? What are some models for consent in power exchange relationships? Where do we draw the ethical line? How does gender, race, sexuality, kink and other identities and labels affect your experiences with consent practices and power-exchange relationships? How do you identify your needs and limits and assert them for yourself, while not imposing upon the needs and limits of others? Do you impose on others and if so to what extent? How is consent applied to intangible expectations of honesty, transparency, effort vs more tangible expectations within play and relationships?
While this discussion will include sharing our personal and interpersonal struggles, the focus will be how consent is or should be navigated when one party is agreeing to give up some of their autonomy.
