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 beginner who's considering a whip purchase or who has a whip and hasn't used it much.

* Workshop structure

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, there will still be plenty of opportunities to practice.)
  • A leather jacket

* Who should attend?

No prior experience throwing whips is assumed for this class - it's specifically designed for beginners.

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

Since much of the workshop is hands-on practice, bringing a practice partner is helpful.  Don't hesitate to come alone though - there will be plenty of opportunities to practice alone, and we'll facilitate ad-hoc practice opportunities.

* Afterwards

Attendees will receive a handout full of principles, safety information, basic technique, and resources.

Attendees also receive a 20% discount coupon for purchases at Lover's Lair. Lovers Lair has a great selection of singletail whips, and your 20% discount is a substantial savings on an item that will last for years.
