This is a virtual class that will be hosted on Zoom
Have you found yourself pausing when someone asks “what are you really into?” or “What type of D/s do you enjoy?”
Having a hard time visualizing what you might enjoy in that scene your partner wants? Perhaps you’ve found yourself not quite loving the play you’ve enjoyed in the past but aren’t sure what to ask for in negotiations?
Contrary to popular assumptions- knowing what we really want in play can be challenging. It’s also quite normal to not know everything about your desires. Auntie Midori is here to help.
This is an exciting new virtual class from the founder of ForteFemme Women’s Dominance Intensive & The Art of Feminine Dominance. Part of a series exploring the fundamentals of feminine dominance* Midori will guide you through
a unique process to help you identify your desire archetype and learn how to embody and express it through play.
Note: “Feminine dominance” is about a state of mind and how it can be explored through play, not necessarily gender experience. This class is open to all genders, orientations, and anyone with curiosity about topping (whether a little or a lot).
We will cover…
No experience necessary. All Genders & Orientations are welcome.
Come prepared to engage in thought exercises & discussions, deep dive into your needs, and take lots of notes (so many fun ideas!) If you have taken the classes “Best Kink Advice Nobody Told You” or “Art of Feminine Dominance”, this class is an excellent complement and addition to the skills learned there. For foundations on physical skills and specific tools and techniques, stay tuned for class dates.
Midori is a renowned educator and writer on sexuality. Dubbed “the supernova of kink” by Dan Savage, she emerged from the Sex Positive Movement in San Francisco in the early 1990s, soon becoming a much sought after international presenter on sexuality, personal fulfillment, and kinky adventures.
Her reputation as an authority and leading expert on alternative pleasures stems not only from her unique and entertaining process of teaching concrete skills but from her ability to deconstruct and distill complex matters of desire into surprisingly accessible lessons with eloquence and humanity. She’s known for tackling challenging topics with fresh and relevant insights. She calls this her “head-heart-hands” method to create a space where people are allowed individual self-exploration. Fundamentally she is motivated by helping people to create authentic and intimate relationships while emphasizing self-actualization, shame reduction, acceptance, and justice.
She teaches a Kink Informed Certification Program with the Sexual Health Alliance for accredited Therapists, Educators, and other professionals to better support their clients who engage in alternative relationship styles. In recent years she has taught for professional organizations such as Institute for Sexuality Education and Enlightenment, Center for Cultural Innovation, and Modern Sex therapy Institute. Midori has also presented at San Francisco State University and Antioch University and was the recipient of the 2022 Humanitarian Award from American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT).
Her writing is extensive, ranging from numerous articles, columns, works of fiction, to instructional books. She is the author of The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage, Wild Side of Sex, Master Han’s Daughter, and co-author of Silk Threads. Her next Shibari book is currently being written.
She leads transformative small group intensives, including Rope Dojo ® and ForteFemme: Women’s Dominance Weekend. You can learn more about her coaching and education at www.PlanetMidori.com.
