This event has passed.

Singletail whips have a powerful mystique and deliver a powerful experience. They manage to be beautiful, delicate, and savage, all at once. This workshop focuses on the most common whips used for BDSM - 3' and 4' signal whips.

It's specifically designed for the rank beginner who's considering a whip purchase or who has a whip and hasn't used it much.
Max will cover

    Whip construction
    Where to hit / where not to hit
    Warming up your whip / warming up your bottom
    Basic technique
    What to buy and where to buy it

This is a very hands-on class.  After the introductory material, we'll spend most of our time throwing the whips. If you'd rather just watch and listen, that's OK too.  

Bring a leather jacket for whoever will be hit by the whip.  We will be practicing, NOT doing scenes, and we'll use the leather jackets to moderate the sensation created by the whip's impact so you can focus on learning basic technique without worrying about hurting your bottom.

What to bring:

    Your whip, if you have one
    A practice partner, if you have one (if not, we'll practice on each other)
    A leather jacket

As with all of Max's workshops, a handout will be provided to facilitate your learning and retention.

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

Note: WIAN Studios will be on hand selling singletails and other toys.  Please arrive when the doors open at 12:30 if you'd like to browse their wares.

Cost: $40, $35 in advance.
Attendance is limited to 30 people.
