Class description: Baby one more time…
Since entering the lifestyle and learning I was a masochist I started researching how to process pain, so I can feel more pain. I came to learn there are three types of play that I need to be able to process: the planned scenes, the sudden attacks, and the long-held pains. Each one had different characteristics and ways to process. I found most research addressed the planned scene. As a researcher I kept digging and adapted what I found and practiced developing tips and techniques I can use to process pain in all three types of play. This course is a practical lesson combining everything I have found and practiced over the years on the topic of pain processing.
Rituals of Kink
What is ritual, and what is its purpose? How can we use ritual to enhance our experience of kink? From fetish outfits, to setup and cleanup routines, to complex D/s protocol, kink is full of ritual language. Let’s look at rituals both sacred and secular, and explore how actions can speak louder than words.
