(Presenter: Dr. Bob) This class is suitable for those new to our culture.
Power exchange relationships can be difficult to sustain over time. It takes a lot of ongoing work to keep such relationships fresh and it’s easy to slip back into more common archetypes (“husband/wife” or “boyfriend/girlfriend). This workshop covers such topics as: initial reasons why a power exchange relationship can get into trouble; ego and insecurity in relationships; structural reasons for difficulties; exploring fear and anxiety among slaves and submissives; inability of one partner to be what the other wished for; and an exploration of positive characteristics one might look for in a partner. (NOTE: attendees may wish to take notes.)
