May Program: The Protocol Game


Friday May 15, 2020    
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


n/a, virtual

Event Type

Whether you’re a dominant or a submissive, creating, implementing, and enforcing protocol in D/s dynamics is freakin’ hard. But it can be easier. Come create your own Protocol Game and create, implement, and enforce 52 protocols in the next year. In this workshop, you’ll learn: how to create a “training wheel” of categories that will drive your protocol, how to implement new protocol so it actually sticks, and how to enforce new protocol with the minimum of effort. And you’ll walk away with your own Protocol Game to play—it can be done in partnership or solo, by dominants, submissives, or anyone in between.

About our Presenters


Master Rook (they/them) and slave rook (he/they) are the 2019 Northwest Master and slave. They are white genderqueer leather dykes who met in 2011 when they were both presenting at a kink conference. They fell in lust at first touch and have been theorizing on power dynamics together ever since. Both Master and slave constantly seek out mean, creative ways to deepen their dynamic, and consider M/s a spiritual journey to their most authentic selves. They love sharing what they’ve learned and have taught at over 50 M/s, leather, and lifestyle events, and co-founded D/s Playground at slave rook is the co-creator and illustrator of The GENDER Book and Kinkopoly; Master Rook has written thousands of dirty words for anthologies, columns, and their own site,

Note from the presenters: 
Hi y’all! We’re excited to be with you and talk about protocol. The goal of the workshop is to actually take you through a process of creating 52 protocols — one for each week of the next year — and we’ll take you through some brainstorms to help generate ideas for what would be useful to you specifically. If you want to be an over-achiever, here’s the handout you can download and print — but any way you like to take notes is great, in your notebook, digitally, on scrap paper. 
We’re hosting or teaching twice a month online through our title year, and y’all are invited; join our Leather Couch series here and we’ll let you know the details.
See you tonight!  Zoom room opens at 7:45pm, Program starts at 8pm sharp.
