BDSM 101 resources

This guide was created as a companion to my BDSM101 workshop at Melbourne Uni’s Rad Sex and Consent Week, so some information is relevant specifically to Melbourne.  The list is not intended to stand in for the workshop – they’re a pair.  This particular workshop is pitched to undergraduate university students but can be modified and de-localized.
