Protocols - The 5 W's

Saturday 1:45 PM - 2:45 PM

Topic area: Community / Protocols

In this class the facilitator will present a variety of protocol scenarios and discuss the pros and cons of established protocols and establishing protocols. We will compare and contract the presence of protocols vs. consent - yes, it's a hot topic, so let's talk objectively about it! After an introduction of the topic and outline of this workshop, the presenter will introduce scenarios and open the room for discussion as they relate to Who, What, When, Where and Why. This is not intended to be a workshop which outlines, or even defines, the accepted, unaccepted, and sometimes misunderstood protocols that exist in our various communities - rather, let's look at seeking understanding of protocols, and their value; and their impact on various scenarios including everything from bar etiquette to heavy scene play.
