NEDS is proud to present Skyla – Non-Monogamy 101 Sept 13

Non-Monogamy 101 – NEDS September 2019 Our culture makes space for one relationship structure – monogamy. As kinksters, we know that there are many different approaches to relationships. This workshop will cover different types of non-monogamy, and specifically focus on polyamory. Topics covered will include: talking to your partner(s) about your needs & desires, health and safety protocols, logistics, being out vs. not being out to family, friends, and co-workers.
Although this workshop is directed at foundational level topics, people of all experiences are welcomed and encouraged to attend – including monogamous folks. Bio: Skyla is your friendly neighborhood mermaid. She has been swimming around these waters since 2012 where she got her start through attending a NEDS class! Skyla went on to become a NEDS board member working as secretary and event coordinator. Skyla continued her passion for community volunteering through working behind the scenes at several large scale kink conventions including: Fusion, Summer Camp, Winter Fire, and Bound in Boston. In 2018, Skyla teamed up Ozma_of_Oz to create new convention; Tethered Together. Tethered Together is a hotel takeover rope-centric convention that is accented with dance, circus, relationship, and kink workshops. The event runs in March each year in Rhode Island. Skyla can be found teaching on a variety topics including polyamory, cosplay, urethral sounding, and rope bondage. Skyla is happily married to a fellow kinkster in a polyamorous marriage that takes a “kitchen table” style approach to relationships. She loves iced coffee, dry humor, and dancing with her leviwand.
