Presented by Shilo
Doors open at 7:30pm – Programs begins at 8pm
How do you let fellow kinksters know what you are into without getting up on a soap box and making a declaration? How do you flirt from across the room just by flashing a bit of color? Flagging, that’s how!
Join us for an evening of all things flagging. Learn to show your interest without words and always have a conversation starter in your back pocket. Plus, you will get to try out your new flagging skills at the mixer after the class.
Shilo is going to get us all up to date and on-board with our flagging skills in this fun and interactive workshop. We are going to cover the history of flagging the hanky code and the ways the code has evolved and changed throughout the years. Why do you flag what you flag? Learn about flagging for identity vs. interest and practical ways to flag for flirting and fun. Use flagging as a gateway to play negotiations and consider ways to personalize your flagging to suit your individuality.
Mark your calendar for January 17th, bring your favorite flags, and maybe meet someone new who shares your interest! See you there!
