"Concept of Consent"

This talk will cover the idea of consent, both giving and receiving, as it relates to the BDSM and M/s lifestyles. I am going to cover why this is an important part of our lifestyle and the issues that are at the forefront of this topic. We will also discuss three types of consent, as well as some of the models and philosophies. This will be an interactive talk in which audience participation and comments are welcome.

Presented by Master Kaddan

Starting my journey over 30 years ago, I spent seven years training from the bottom up. I hold a Professional Human Services Degree and worked in the federal facilities with clients who had mental health and drug issues. Now that I am retired from that aspect of my life, I am able to focus on the M/s community and volunteering. I am currently a president of the ONYX Pearls NY/NE and the former treasurer to MAsT Manhattan.

"Consent Incidents, Reporting, and Response"

A consent incident is reported to your group or event. What should you do next? What are the implications for your group or event? Do you have a uniform, consistent method for handling such reports? How should a report be handled if a conflict of interest arises? We'll look at all these aspects and more; protecting the reporter of the incident, how to handle such a report (i.e. unwanted advance vs more serious report) and building a 'consent policy' for your groups for more uniformed handling of such incidents.
