What are Folx Saying About Devyn?

Devyn Stone is not only the quintessential educator, but also an asset to the community at-large. He infuses passion, competency, and professionalism into every space that he enters and every endeavor that he takes on. His platform PK has become one of my go-to resources for kink education. Its content is always fresh, consistent, and accessible, and I always walk away with more gems than what the class description(s) may have slated. Finally, on top of teaching, coaching, producing, hosting, advocating, trailblazing, and human-ing, Devyn somehow manages to function as a reliable source of guidance & support for budding educators like myself. His series on becoming a kink educator is truly one-of-a-kind - I have not seen anything like it offered on any other platform EVER. He truly embodies “each one, teach one”, and does so selflessly and with tremendous grace.

"Seriously, you are amazing! Your class has helped me put the "ok" in my being uncertain about many things. I have taken almost 30 classes in the last 6 weeks and have received more personal insight through your 2 hours than all classes combined! Incredibly thankful!..."

Boy Adam Hunter

About "Pronouns & Acronyms & Concepts, Oh My!' Class

"I was really impressed by how much info you covered in a very efficient manner. You were extremely inclusive and open minded, but still were able to be clear and concise. I found it very helpful.... I have been to a number of online kink workshops since Covid hit and they all have been great, but some can become long and clunky due to the vastness of options. I really found yours stood out to me in terms of the efficiency without losing any of the inclusiveness."

boy Lachie

"It may not seem like it today or maybe even tomorrow, but one day you're gonna change the world. You have so much to share and so much passion. I hope that I'm around to see it. I'm so damn proud of you and what you're doing. Keep doing you."

"I was fortunate enough to attend the ABC's of Authority Transfer and loved it! Devyn took the time to explain things so clearly in both execution and his reasoning. I was very impressed. I especially liked the discussion on the difference between Authority Transfer and Power Exchange. This is the first time I heard of using Authority Transfer and I really appreciate the nuance. Thank you so much and I'm looking forward to future classes!!!"

About "You Can Love a Narcissist" Class

"Learning how to set my own boundaries and stand by them is a struggle for me. Devyn covered how to use goals to inform your boundaries and that was enlightening... Keep an open mind, ask questions... Well worth it... Devyn's relaxed casual style makes understanding the concepts easy and he is willing to restate things as needed to clarify which helps you understand the whole picture."

Sarah B

About "BDSM Educator Primer" Intensive

"This class is about the importance of getting to know people before you play with them, and about how each human being is different. This class makes kink about authentic human interaction instead of something "dirty", and I love that. I think that one can use these people skills for non-kink purposes as well, and that's really great."

About "Master is God" Class

"This class helped me see authority transfer as a whole, which gave me a place to start. My problem is I feel myself wanting to give up power with my partner and I don't know much about it. Need to learn first before passing off anything. I really appreciate the focus on self."
"Great class! Great content, taught clear and well. Loved the focus on self. Left the class with a great overview of (authority) transfer. Now I have questions to ask myself and a place to start."

About "A is for Authority: The ABC's of Authority Transfer" Class

What specific problem did this class help you overcome?
"Worrying that my traumatic background would need to be completely overcome/resolved before I can enter a "healthy" power dynamic. (Like seriously decades of therapy later I know it's just never going to just disappear, but the messages I'm getting are that I need to develop a "secure" attachment style before I can look for a long-term partner within the community.)"

About "Stuck on You: Understanding Attachment in Dynamics" Class

What specific problem did this class help you overcome?

If you were to recommend this class to others, what would you say?
Devyn has a delightfully devious mind and has lots of good ideas for fear scenes."


How would you describe the value of this class?
"Valuable, lots of tips I never would have thought of on my own. Calling a sub on the phone every day and saying nothing, to scare them is a great idea for example. And his idea of hand signals as a more subtle way to check on a sub throughout the scene, so the mood isn't ruined...genius."


Why would you recommend Devyn Stone to others?
"He seems very experienced and knowledgeable. Also nice to see a fellow trans guy horror fan into kink, I could relate to him a lot. His attitude is open and friendly."
