Episode Info: This week I finish up our class on portraying a sex worker persona in the SCA. The second of two parts featuring one of our most frequently requested classes in the Knowne World Courtesans, delivered to you in digital format. This class could easily be re-titled Fearless Flirting 101 for the mundane world. In this episode I finish up my walk through a handout by Baronessa Ginevra Fiammetta di Silvestri. I start off part two with ideas on how to alter your speech patterns to indicate your persona choices and create a more historical atmosphere. We move on to discussing the power of conversation to gracefully influence people, and when to draw the line to enforce your own boundaries. We cover some strategies for navigating tricky situations, and what types of things are likely to come. Manipulation, saying “no”, and handling tense interactions all get covered. I explain whorephobia, how it intersects with other forms of bias, and why we should all be working to end it. I wrap up by discussing party safety in SCA settings where alcohol is involved. Show Notes The Wikipedia article on psychological manipulation is a good jumping off point for learning more about the types of behaviors that abusers and predators use to deploy to get what they want from unwilling people. Upcoming salons will focus on non-monogamy, polyamory, and inspirational women before 1600 CE. Do you have questions we can answer? Stories, experiences, or research to share?
