It’s pride weekend! Right now as I type this from the warmth of my sunny bedroom, hundreds and hundreds of gender radical folks are gathering in Delores Park in San Francisco for the pre-Trans March gathering, and then the Trans March, and then the Trans March afterparties. And then tomorrow’s the Dyke March (with a similar schedule), and Sunday is the big ol’ mother-of-em-all, the Pride Parade.
I get a little weepy around Pride, just like I get weepy around my birthday or other Big Events that mark the passing of time and cause me to reflect on community and friends and chosen family and survival.
Being an introvert with misanthropic tendencies, I usually don’t attend big Pride events. After a few times of going and being just pretty miserable and waiting for them to be over, I learned that it’s better to stay home and have an Introvert Pride all by myself (or with a few friends).
I also remember that Pride marks the anniversary of Stonewall, which was a riot started by drag queens and trans folks against police in New York City. It might be a commercialized, commodified celebration now, but it has radical, marginalized, and empowering roots.
“Hey wait, I want to hear about the sale!”
Yeah. Let’s do this thing.
So because I love community (in my introvert-misanthropic way), I want to invite you and a friend to sign up for the Submissive Playground—this weekend only!—for $200.
That means: YOU + your friend who is also into submission = take the course for only $200.
The course is much more fun when you can make study dates or compare homework!
What do you get? The DIY (formerly and lovingly called the Broke Ass) Package includes:
- Materials! Videos to watch, erotic stories to read, how-to articles,
- Submissive Journal worksheets (like the one in the Submissive Starter Kit, except more elaborate)
- Experiments! Every module has guided experiments for you to go try—on your own, or with whatever resources, doms, or play partners are available to you
- Calls every other week to reflect on each module’s tasks, report your progress, and ask Mr. Sexsmith questions
- Access to message board to discuss the homework and tasks with other submissives, for continued group feedback, discussion, connection
- Submissive community, and deeper connection to the kink world
- Digital certificate of participation
Are you unsatisfied right now? Become insatiable. Become delectable. Become confident in your submission to go after what you want.
This is the way to figure out where your heat is, and what really gets you going. Maybe it’s more dirty talk in your sex life, more spankings, more humiliation, more rules/procedures … or maybe just more play. Submissive Playground will help you start being a more conscious sub. You’ll start saying yes’ consciously instead of being taken advantage of (you know, without your consent, in the bad ways). You’ll begin to create healthy submissive patterns that don’t leave you tired, uninspired, and unsatisﬁed.
Registration for Submissive Playground summer school in July & August closes on Monday, June 30th! This is the last chance sale to sign up!
And hey, if you’re out there right now, having a great time in the grass and sun with all the eye-candy of trans and genderqueer folks all around you, I hope you have a wonderful time.
