Dynamics of Power Exchange – an introduction: a TNG-U Class/Meet & Greet

Utah TNG is proud to be inviting the Rocky Mountain Person of Leather title holder and Glorious Leader of Utah TNG, Ikonoclast, will present on the topic of Power Exchange. Much like the presenter this topic goes by many names: Power exchange, Dominance & submission, Authority inequality. Ikon will provide an entertaining and informative introduction on the topic.

This is the fourth class in Utah TNG’s 2015-2016 semester. Our goal is to offer informative and entertaining presentations on subjects, which will help guide people in their exploration of BDSM and their sexuality in general.

These classes will be held in the main floor dance hall at Club Area 51 in Salt Lake. These classes will be open to all of the general population ages 18+ (not just the usual 18 to 35 age limits usually offered for Utah TNG events). These are not sponsor requiring classes. Anyone and everyone 18+ with a valid state issued ID will be allowed to attend. There will be a $5 expected payment for these classes.

Classes will run from 7pm to 9pm. Immediately after the classes from 9pm to 10pm there will be a mix and mingle opportunity. There will be non-alcoholic drinks available to purchase in the 18+ area. The downstairs bar area will be open to those 21+. There will be no expectation for anyone to stay after class for the social time. Only those attending class will be admitted to participate in the socializing event.

So You Had An Ugly Breakup. Here’s What I’m Not Going to Do by The Coffin Girl

I’m not going to pick sides between you and your ex. Especially if we were all friends before your breakup.

I’m not going to carefully re-arrange my invite lists around your breakup.

I’m not going to join you in trash-talking your ex (my friend).

I’m not going to change my expectation that you act like an adult at adult functions. Even if your ex is present. Even if he brought his new girlfriend.

Here’s what I will do:

I will support you! I’ll spend time with you, watch romcoms, share a bottle of wine or whatever will help you as you’re moving on.

I’ll understand if you have to decline my invitations or leave early.

I’ll listen if you need to rant!

I’ll be there for you as best I can. a shoulder if you need one, a sounding board, a listening ear, we can even go out into the backyard and break stuff, if that will help. 🙂 But I won’t damage relationships and experiences with others because of an ugly breakup.

Yes, I am a submissive… By MWsFairDaisy

That does not mean I can’t think for myself, or have my own opinions and own thoughts.
It means that I have my own mind, and am willing to use this to serve another.

It does not mean that I will let anyone and everyone do as they wish to me.
It means that I will give my submission to someone who earns it from me, who shares respect with me, who I click with.

It does not mean that I will not question things or actions I don’t believe are right.
I still have my own principles and morals and can disagree when I feel I should.

It does not mean that I will blindly follow any order.
I will serve as best I can, but if I think something is wrong, or do not wish to do it, I will speak up.

It does not mean that I am not a whole person.
I am just as complex as the next person, but I am willing and wanting to surrender the whole of myself to serve another.

It does not mean that I am not strong, or independent.
I am stronger than most know, I have to be to give my all. I am fiercely independent, I am just choosing to give my submission.

It does not mean that you can look down on me.
*I am your equal, my mind is wired slightly differently to yours, I enjoy different things, but I am not beneath you. Opposite, but equal by Belasarius

Don’t take my submissive nature as a given, do not assume any less of me. Yes, I am a submissive, but first and foremost, I am a person.
