In current times, #consent has become an important part of the discussion in any interaction that involves intimate play. Considerations for emotions, physical activities involved, sexual contact, and energy exchange can make the process feel more like a business transaction than play, connection or healing...but it doesn't have to! I have learned lots of ways to weave #negotiation in to conversation and have it still be flirty, fun, and feel collaborative, but am always looking to expand this conversation. Every potential partner is unique, and communicates differently, so having multiple ways to approach these conversations helps us create better synergy in a variety of dynamics. What negotiation tricks serve you well? How have you developed the ways in which you negotiate? Are you confident in your negotiation skills, or are there areas you would like to improve upon?
