A Beginner's Guide to Kink: A Sex-Positive Approach

The kink community is growing, and learning to embrace the notion that having unique or non-traditional sexual interests does not mean something is wrong with you is important. Kink-shaming or when you embarrass someone for their sexual preferences and believe someone has intimacy problems because of their sexual interest(s) is quite common, and individuals are not seeking the help for fear of judgment. This course will debunk myths of what it means to be kink and promote a sex positive approach to working with this community.
