Leatherman. Educator. Coach. Author. Devyn Stone is defined by so many labels, but it is not a label that defines who he is. Join him and @HiThereCatsuit for this compelling conversation.
Devyn Stone is a self-awareness and BDSM educator, author, and alternative lifestyles coach. He dreams of globe trotting and helping folx achieve the connections they desire, while they learn themselves more deeply.
He believes in diversity not division, and actualizes that idea by promoting strongly affirming spaces and interactions. Devyn has a passion for giving and receiving education - his favorite topics are psychology, negotiation, consent, relationship construction, and organization.
His “Quick Reference” books covered affirming gender, creating protocol, negotiating authority in relationships, and more. He is the Founder of Pragmatically Kinking, where members discuss the practical aspects of BDSM, and THRIVE, a virtual conference dedicated to the intersection of mental health and BDSM.
Devyn’s been actively practicing authority transfer dynamics since 2004. Today he lives in Colorado Springs, CO with his property, Guan Xuan, who is unquestionably devoted to his will. Devyn is an extrovert, a Sons of Anarchy fan, and a foodie.
His next workshop is August 14!
So you've been thinking you want to teach in BDSM spaces? Kink/BDSM education is an unregulated field. There is no degree or certification to achieve. There are also very few resources available to those who may want to get started. So check this class out! Devyn Stone, BDSM educator and event organizer, takes you on a fast paced and bumpy ride through what he has found to be the basics of calling oneself a "kink educator." You will hear about everything from negotiation and boundaries to scheduling to booking and even some marketing and material development. https://fetlife.com/events/998997
