Najalaise is creating queer & nuanced kink education
7
patrons
Since 2012, I've been presenting workshops, offering tastings and other experiential learning opportunities, organizing peer education events, and facilitating panel and roundtable discussions. Hypnokink, play piercing, risk mitigation, and consent practices are among the many topics I teach, and I develop more content regularly. (You can find my website, with a class list, here.) I am convinced that kink education- like most education- benefits from the inclusion of many voices, and I work to highlight how many different ways there are to do things. My perspective is heavily influenced by my experiences as a queer nonbinary person and by the fact that I play as both a top and a bottom.

If you've been interested in classes I teach, but are not able to attend all the events you'd like to in person, Patreon could be a way to get some of the content or to pick my brain!
Tiers
Keep doing what you're doing!
$1 or more per month

A dollar may not seem like much, but it means a lot to me: I take it as evidence that you really do like what I'm doing and think I should continue.


When I write educational content that's publicly available, like interviews about upcoming events, soapboxy opinion pieces, or followup thoughts after one of my classes, I'll aggregate it here. This means you won't have to do the work of following me on multiple social media sites (and winnowing out the cute animal photos and nonsense) in order to keep up with what I've been saying.


You'll also have access to discount codes for many of my workshops and be eligible for any bizarro giveaways I do for patrons.

Behind the scenes
$5 or more per month

At this level, you'll see things that aren't publicly available: the scribbled class outlines I keep in my back pocket when I'm teaching, excerpts of answers I give to class attendees' questions, and the details of what I've been reading. 


I'll also post a brief note each month about ideas I've been exploring, whether those are experiments I've tried in my own play or thoughts on classes I may develop in the future.


In addition, you'll receive all the benefits listed for the lower tier.

"Thinkpiece" is a gruesome word
$10 or more per month

Send me a question each month related to a topic I teach on, and I'll write a few paragraphs (or an essay, if I get carried away) in response. On occasion, when I feel that I can more clearly answer the question in a different medium, I may ask if you'd like to receive a video or a set of photos instead. 


Patrons at this level will also get to see the answer before anyone else.


In addition, you'll receive all the benefits listed for the lower tiers.

Want to talk?
$50 or more per month

If you'd like personalized hypnosis, play piercing, or other kink advice, or if you want to consult with me on something else, this is the one. We'll chat over IM for at least thirty minutes- or if we're going to be in the same place, you can ask about meeting up to chat in person!


Feel free to use this as a one-time benefit. If you'd like, you can also leave your subscription at this level on an ongoing basis, and I'll reach out to you each month to schedule our chat. (Please note that this is a q&a session, not a hands-on private lesson. If you're interested in private lessons, I schedule those outside of Patreon.)


In addition, you'll receive all the benefits listed for the lower tiers.

Goals
7 of 10 patrons
Once the first ten patrons have joined, I'll be giving away a handknit & handspun hat!

If you've spent time around me in person, you know that outside of classes, I'm as likely to talk your ear off about fiber arts as I am about kink. When I create a hat that doesn't tell me immediately who it's for, I'll be offering it to patrons.
