Please Tell Us What Is Needed – Crowdsourcing New Presentations


The very first time that slave angie and I did a kink presentation, we weren’t sure what to think. The audience was kind, but the experience was slightly terrifying. Since then, we think we’ve improved quite a bit. We’ve overcome our shyness and awkwardness. We’ve figured out how to work with each other, when to take the lead, how to flow back and forth.

We’ve also paid attention to what works. We like to experiment with new ideas, with subjects and techniques that make for a more intimate, more responsive, more empathetic approach. We’re trying to move away from the standard approach to the 90 minute event format. We’re encouraging folks to look at this like an on-going discussion – one that we’d love to keep going with people who want to share and explore a subject with us.

In that vein of experimenting, we’d like to know what you’d like to know.

If you attend MAsT meetings, or if you go to events, you’re probably like us when you scan the class/event list for new presentations, new subjects or a new take on an old subject. We can guess what we’d like to see, but that’s our perspective.

Maybe there’s a subject that you have always wanted to hear someone talk about.

Maybe there’s something you’ve read on our blog that you’d like to know more about.

Maybe there’s a need in the M/s community on a subject that you think needs to be addressed.

We’d love to know. We’d love to be able to help and share our experiences in a way that addresses what is needed. And, I hope, if we can’t present on it, we know a very large, passionate M/s community worldwide, where someone, somewhere, has probably experienced or has thoughts on the very thing you’re asking about. If there’s a new approach you’d like to see, let us know. We’ve been learning all we can about new and different ways of learning, and we’d like to hear what you want to see.

So please fire away in the comments below. We’ll be promoting this question here, on Fetlife and on Facebook all week.
