Class Selections

Rope for Sadism & Masochism
Pain is usually our bodies' way of telling us something is wrong. It stimulates instinctual reactions to avoid, flee, recoil and get away. A lot of S/m play begins with a mastery of pain and how to manage it and let it become some juicy, delicious, endorphin producing elixir. This workshop will be an effort to find the right types of pain for your scene and how to produce that with rope. We will talk about pain to avoid and pain to languish and wallow in. Ties that can cause endurance or gradual pain and those that will strike immediately. When I began my journey in rope it was a means to immobilize someone only, my first mentor changed that by showing me many ways that the pain and S/m can come from just the rope in a variety of delicious ways.

Rape & Abduction Play
The last word in this title is the most important "play". This class is about how to make this seemingly illegal and non-consensual activity in the outside world a part of our play. This is a daunting task that requires close examination of your physical, emotional, philosophical and social concerns of rape and abduction play. The questions we will explore are how far are we each willing to go for realism and/or how far are we willing to go for safety. I will talk about my previous play experiences as examples and give details on the ins and outs of negotiating and executing these hot scenes.
