So much of sex ed is about the HOW. But Tina Horn has always been preoccupied with the WHY?! Come enjoy a webinar lightning round version of Tina’s popular podcast “Why Are People Into That?!” For the curious newbie to BDSM, we’ll explain some popular interests. For the seasoned scenester, this class may shed some new light on everything you thought you knew about kink! No matter what your experience, you’re sure to be entertained by this funny and thought-provoking workshop!
Some topics we will discuss: bondage, spanking, fisting, pegging, genitorture, role play, leather, latex, feet, boots, electricity, public sex…
You’ll see that fundamental human desire is not all that difficult to relate to.
If there’s a fetish you’ve always wanted explained, feel free to ask Tina ahead of time or bring your questions to class.
