I typically offer some amount of the scene consultation to be applied to a session. I have stated that I reserve the right to rescind this offer if I have to do some unusual amount of work prior to the scene, such as you providing inaccurate information for your references which I then may spend my time helping you sort out.
I want to explicitly include situations in which people are not prepared with their interests and limits. So now you’re aware if I tell you that the $X credit I offer is removed, you can’t tell me you did not understand this could cause that to happen. This is usually an issue with new people.
For suggestions about how to figure out your interests, go to the question “How do I explain what I like? What if I don’t know?” on my FAQ page.
For suggestions about how to figure out your limits, go to my BDSMlog entry Know Your Limits.
If you do not like the idea of your consult credit being taken away know that you have control over this by being prepared when you ask for a scene.
I’m happy to help you figure all of this out, but I will be tributed for offering my time to help you instead of you doing it by yourself.
