$15 – $25
Midori

This class will be held online via Zoom — you’ll receive an email with access information prior to the event. While classes are LIVE in nature and by default not recorded, some educators have chosen to offer recordings of their classes to pre-registered attendees; please inquire for specifics of this event. Registration deadline: 2:30 p.m. PST on the day of class. No day-of cancellations.

Curious about BDSM? Are you just beginning to explore your top or dominant side? Do you find all the information out there a bit intimidating, confusing or impractical? Bring all your questions and Midori will tackle them. No BS — all practical.

Auntie Midori will share with you practical tips, easy ways to get started, and how to avoid common mistakes. Learn how to find out you and your partner’s desires. Get advice on how to select the right toys to make your steamy reality, including unexpected pervertables. She’ll also talk about how to avoid harming your partner while keeping the thrill. She’s prone to confess tales of her spectacular goofy bloopers too.

Everyone welcome whether you like to top, bottom or switch it up — whether you’re new or experienced, whoever you like to play with. Bring your questions, note taking material, and curiosity.

Join us in June for Part 2: Auntie Midori’s Practical Advice: For New Bottoms and Submissives!

Trailblazing educator, sexologist, artist, and irritant to banality, Midori founded Rope Dojo and ForteFemme: Women’s Dominance Intensive. She penned the first English instruction book on Shibari titled The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage in 2001, paving the way to the popularity of rope. Dan Savage calls her the “Super Nova of Kink,” while others affectionately call her Auntie Midori for her cool, tell-it-like-it-is, funny, reality-based teaching. She is also the author of Wild Side Sex: The Book of Kink.

We’re offering 2 free class spots to folks with financial need; please fill out this form if you are interested. Two people will be chosen randomly and contacted at least 2 weeks prior to class to confirm.
