Does the thought of a good spanking make your knees weak?

Have you wondered how that singletail whip might feel against your skin?

Do you know the difference between a flogger, a cane and a paddle?

Impact play is a big part of many people’s kink, whether it’s sensuous, erotic, challenging, or cathartic. All types of impact play share common elements, and each has its own unique flavor. Join Max for an impactful journey through the various types of impact toys as he shows you how to create a variety of sensations and scenes.

Max will cover technique, safety, shopping for toys, and how to match your intention to your practice. You’ll see and experience toys from Lover’s Lair’s extraordinary selection and from Max’s private collection. We’ll also discuss how to use your built-in impact toy – your hand.

Whether impact play is used for pleasure, pain, discipline or power exchange, the options are unlimited. If you’re just starting to explore your kink, why not add it to your BDSM repertoire? And if you’re a seasoned kinkster, join us and learn a few new tips!

* Workshop format

The workshop includes lecture, many demos, and opportunities to see what the various toys feel like.  If you’ve brought a willing partner we’ll also have opportunities for you to use the toys on them.

By the end of this workshop you’ll have all the information you need to evaluate and purchase impact toys, to negotiate competently, and to incorporate these toys into your play.

* Who should attend?

This workshop assumes no previous BDSM experience, and is appropriate for all genders, all orientations, and for tops and bottoms.

* Afterwards

Attendees receive an illustrated handout full of principles, safety information, and basic technique. Attendees also receive a 20% discount coupon for purchases at Lover's Lair.

Max will be available after the workshop to help you shop for toys.

* Cancellation / refund policy

If you cancel your registration up to 2 days before the event you will receive a full refund.

If we cancel the event you will receive a 100% refund, to include ticketing fees.

* COVID protocols

We are navigating the current CDC guidelines and our own sense of safety and reasonableness. The protocol for this event is based on our own research and risk assessment; we encourage you to do the same before you purchase your ticket. If you’d like to attend, please follow these protocols:

Attendees must be fully vaccinated as of the event date. That means 2 weeks after the final dose of your series (1 for J&J, 2 for Pfizer or Moderna).

You will be asked to provide a proof of vaccination as you enter. If you prefer, you can email Max a copy of your vaccine card ahead of time. In the interest of privacy, I’ll delete the card after I’ve confirmed your vaccination status.

Masks will not be required. You may, of course, wear a mask if you wish.

Please do not attend if you are exhibiting COVID symptoms or you are exposed to someone who has tested positive in the 14 days before the event.

Thank you for helping to keep us all safe.

* About Max

Max has been active in Seattle's kink community since 1992 and has been teaching bondage, BDSM, and polyamory workshops since 1999.

While he is proficient with a wide range of BDSM skills, Max especially enjoys the intimacy of rope bondage and the intensity of the singletail. Max projects a gentle, dominant energy, and all of his relationships - and most of his scenes - include a substantial D/S component.

Max's love of teaching shines through his workshops, and his love for people informs his personal encounters.
