Event Type

This class uses the singletail whip as an instrument of intimacy and connection. The unique sensation of the whip stroke as opposed to any other kind of impact play will be explored through lecture, demo, and hands-on practice. We will demystify the singletail and introduce a gentle framework for its use, particularly for those who have had previous negative experiences. We will focus on the non-verbal communication and hands on technique for sensuous whipping.  Instructions for making crackers will be provided.
