Topping to the Next Level - How to Push

When is it OK to push your bottom? How do you push them safely, ethically, and effectively?

If you've got that mastered, try this: how do you push yourself?

Topics we'll be covering include:

  • Getting someone outside their comfort zone
  • Helping your bottom receive stimulus and process play
  • Creating tension in your scenes
  • Working with a bottom who asks you to push them harder
  • Encouraging your bottom to try something they're unsure of 
  • Learning from someone's "never done it" history 
  • Gracefully managing the intensity of a scene 
  • Helping bottoms push through barriers
  • Renegotiating during a scene
  • Recognizing "hard limits" vs. "soft limits"

Because there's so much information to cover, the workshop time is dedicated to demos and a formal presentation. There's no need to bring a practice partner, although this material is as valuable to bottoms as it is to tops.

Handouts will be provided to jog your memory when you get home, and to supply additional references.

While some topping experience will be helpful, this workshop is appropriate for all skill levels, genders and orientations. 

Tying the Tresses – Making Hair Bondage Work

The scalp is a deliciously sensitive area of the body, and contact with the head and hair often carries an erotic or dominant overtone. This makes for intense, intimate bondage.

This workshop describes the principles behind effective hair bondage and shows you how to use the hair for pleasure, pain, restraint, and control.

Much of the workshop will be hands-on. If you can, bring a practice partner with suitable hair and a 3-5m piece of 4mm rope that's not too slippery. If you don't have a practice partner that's OK - there'll still be plenty to see and learn.

This workshop assumes no previous experience, and is appropriate for all genders and orientations. We'll send you away with a handout, some new ideas, and a better sense of what makes hair bondage work.
