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 or says "I'm afraid of this but I want to try it?"
  • 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".

This workshop assumes no previous experience, and is appropriate for all genders and orientations. As with all of Max's workshops, there's a handout you can use as a memory aid when you're practicing at home.

Here's a link to the KinkFest schedule for this workshop.

The Tender Bits - Male and Female Genital Bondage

This workshop covers some particularly intimate, effective and sexy bondage techniques.

We'll start with the basics of immobilizing and tormenting boy-bits. There'll be a nice demo, information on cock and ball safety, and some thoughts on how to adapt the techniques to your own situation.

Next Max will present a variety of techniques for binding, displaying and stimulating girl-bits - the mons, inner and outer labia and clit. There'll be a demo for this portion too.

And then we'll all practice what we've learned, so bring your genitals and your friends with genitals.

Much of the class will consist of hands-on exercises to help you get familiar with the material in a friendly, low-pressure environment. The emphasis is on learning, having fun, and building confidence.

If you can, come with a practice partner. If you don't have a partner, come anyway - there'll be lots to watch, and we'll try to set you up with a practice partner. Rope Bottoms - this is your chance to meet some rope tops - come learn and get tied up!

Loaner rope will be available, but bring (2) 15-20 foot pieces of 4mm rope if you can. Hemp is OK, but smooth synthetic line is best.

This workshop assumes no previous experience, and is appropriate for all genders and orientations. As with all of Max's workshops, there's a handout you can use as a memory aid when you're practicing at home.
