Topping without Toys – Marcia Baczynski


Throwing a flogger or tying someone up can be super-fun on their own. But if you’re looking to create the experience of dominance and submission, that won’t get you there by itself. In this playshop, we’ll explore what power exchange is and you’ll get some quick and easy tools you can use at the party to create some hot scenes.

We’ll cover:

  • Two simple steps to get into a dominant headspace, even when you’re not sure what you’re doing
  • Sexy, toppy ways to do check-ins and seductive consent (cuz “Is this okay?” is not hot)
  • Tips make it look like you know what you’re doing, even if you’re new to this whole topping/domming thing
  • Evocative language for creating power dynamics
  • Nonverbal ways to communicate dominance, through touch, movement and breath
  • How to put it all together so you look like you know what you’re doing (and have fun doing it!)

Whether you’re new to topping or have been exploring for years, this workshop will leave you with practical skills you can use in your very next scene.
