Miss Mackenzee

Our breath is our life and when we give someone control of that, it’s an ultimate surrender. This can make some people nervous, but it doesn’t have to be so scary. This workshop with Miss Mackenzee is designed to help you feel more confident when you take your partner’s breath away. Whether you’re a top or bottom, learning the safety of this type of play is extremely important. Not only will you be hearing from a seasoned player, but you’ll also be able to get a bottom’s perspective as Miss Mackenzee’s submissive will be present in class. In addition to a wealth of knowledge, there will also be exciting demos. Some topics to be discussed in class:

  • Why is breath play so erotic and exciting?
  • Proper technique for choking
  • How to use toys and other items for breath play
  • Special considerations when engaging in this type of play
  • Getting creative 

Regardless of gender identity, sexuality, relationship status, experience level, age, or race, all are welcome to join this class.
