I believe that communication helps build community. Talking Kink is designed to be a forum for open discussion led by a panel of people who are particularly experienced in whatever topic has been chosen for the evening. Because these are discussion based, we will focus more on dynamics, identities, and the like instead of how-to/hands-on topics (for example, bottoming instead of flogging.)
Talking Kink happens every 4th Monday, except in months where the 4th Monday falls on or really near a holiday (those months will be skipped.) The event is held at The Q Center (4115 N Mississippi Ave, Portland OR) from 7pm-9pm. There is a suggested donation of $5-$20 with nobody turned away for lack of funds and the discussion will last about 2 hours.
