Lately I have been invited to talk about BDSM to sex positive young adults. It’s rewarding to see the eager fresh faces free of shame coming to learn from us “pioneers.” Reading the large attentive crowd, I addressed the basics of consent, negotiation and roleplay in kinky explorations. I stressed the importance of connecting, really connecting with your partner. While many of them get it intellectually, when it comes to sharing the energy they are raising, they seem to need a little help.
In the last six months both my evening classes on sensory deprivation were full, a clear indication that a little inner journey is welcomed by many sensual explorers. I have taken kinsters on many rides of pleasure and pain with twisted mindfucks. Have you ever been hooded and zipped into a leather bodybag?
In a galaxy long ago and far away...well, not really, actually in 1980 San Francisco, I was involved in improv theatre; I even took some classes with Whoopi Goldberg in Berkeley! It was just before my entry into the SM world. So when I started to Top, those experiences sure helped me trust my intuition.
