Pervertables are everyday vanilla items repurposed to serve as wickedly delicious kink toys. In this presentation by Midori, you will learn to develop your devious creativity and perv tool improvisation skills.
And play the game of ’stump the presenter’ with Midori’s “Pervertables Challenge.”
Midori (she/her) 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.
