Flogging 101 Extended Workshop:
Demo & Hands-On Training
with Raymond Wise

Learn the basics of flogging! Topics include:
– Motivation and understanding from top to bottom
– Connection: That’s the real secret.
– Safety Third! (Only because it’s the thing we’ll be covering.)
– Boredom and the art of flogging: When it looks really boring, it might be sublime. REALLY understanding what’s going on.
– Effective flogging
– What’s Spinach Got to Do With It? Double flogging and what I learned from a total green newbie in BDSM. There’s more than just how to double flog. Learning from others.
Location for this workshop is two blocks from Sexploratorium. Location details will be emailed to registered students.

Starting in the late 70s before the interweb, before knowing anybody actually does this sort of thing, Wise had to seduce girlfriends into BDSM. The cornerstone of that seduction is knowing what each other really needs, and fulfilling that need. “All I do is lead people where they want to go.” That’s the focus of most of his workshops: find out what you both really need and how you need to get it. Then lead them there. Carter Steven’s Pocono Fall Fetish Fling (in 1998) was his first foray into the public scene where Joe and candi taught him what they know about flogging. After learning from lots of people, he’s given workshops at the York Play Group, Brimstone, the first NDDS bootcamp, and elsewhere . He also participates in the BDSM module of SAR at Widener University, for the Graduate Class in Human Sexuality, exposing future therapists to some aspects of BDSM.

Sunday January 31st, 2-5pm – Caning 101 with Raymond Wise

Harsh and punishing is what generally comes to mind with Canes. It doesn’t have to be that way (but we’ll cover that as well in the workshop, but, hard, is easy.) Arousal, altered state (sub-space), orgasms are all possible with canes. The range of sensations is large and subtle.
We’ll cover:
1) Trust and Patience and Desire. Getting someone to the point where they WANT you to cane them is something you need to know about.
2) Types of canes besides rattan, there’s all sorts of materials. Sting, Thud, Arousing and other sensations are attainable with the right cane and technique.
3) Connection – You get that in most of my hands on workshops. It’s one approach to altered states, arousal, and in general, better relationships!
4) Technique – Using more of the cane for varied sensation. Thud – anchoring caning to arousal – rhythm – Altered States – double caning.
5) Sado-masochism. First thing you think of, right? Of course it’s included.
6) QUIET caning. Apartment dwellers will especially like this.
If you have canes bring a few. Canes are available for experiencing the less painful techniques. They are the ones I think you’ll find the most interesting. The workshop is 3 hours and includes a full scene, an example of how a scene can look and work. And there will be times for hands on experiences if you have a partner with you.

Sunday January 31st, 6-8pm – Connections: Putting Emotions Into Play with Raymond Wise

For most BDSM players, bringing the bottom into spacey, happy place that all partners can witness and experiencing a good connection is the focus of play. Building to the point of euphoria has way more to do with communication, emotion, and what’s going on inside our minds than physical technique. There’s all sorts of ways to get to “sub-space” and to empathetically enjoy the high of a partner. This workshop focuses on the idea of connecting with your partner, mentally, emotionally as well as physically. There are ways to connect in any situation, from first time play partners, to intensifying what you already have naturally with a long term, loving partner. You’ll get a chance to try some of the ideas and you can pick what fits for you.
