WHY SACRED KINK?
Sacred Kink describes a community that exists somewhere betwixt the Sacred Sexuality community and the BDSM community. Though members of these communities frequently share interests, techniques and values, it is uncommon to find spaces that cater to or even allow for the desires of those who want both at the same time.
Sacred Kink is often used to explore darker aspects of the self; to find edges or push boundaries; or to work through difficult emotions. When done well, it can be a powerful tool for personal growth. However, there is frequently more at stake than in a standard BDSM scene.
Typically, in BDSM play spaces it would make other attendees uncomfortable to see this depth of emotion released. Conversely, in most Sacred Sexuality spaces BDSM is disallowed or sequestered away from the general space. Primal Ordeal is different, because everyone is coming to the event for the express purpose of engaging with spiritual intensity.
In short, your whole self is welcome - along with your tears; your maniacal laughter; and all your primal roarings.
