Trailblazing educator, sexologist, coach, artist, and irritant to banality, Midori founded Rope Dojo and ForteFemme: Women’s Dominance Intensive. She penned the first English instruction book on Shibari titled, “Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage” in 2001, paving the way to the popularity of rope. Dan Savage calls her the “Super Nova of Kink,” while others affectionately call her Auntie Midori for her cool, tell-it-like-it-is, funny, reality-based teaching. 

She is also the author of “Wild Side Sex,” “Master Han’s Daughter,” and “Silk Threads.” During this pandemic, learn, laugh and enjoy her special online classes, events and art at www.patreon.com/PlanetMidori
Gain practical tools of language and framework about BDSM communication to serve your clients better. This presentation will provide useful tools for people to better understand their desires while assessing and challenging biases and assumptions.
Even as popular media has brought BDSM to general awareness as a sexual option, it still fails to provide realistic vocabulary to discussion of nuanced desires that is free of judgment, stigma and common biases.
Midori has spent the two decades teaching around “alternative sexuality”. In particular she works with queer population, women and couples, on how to define, explore and express their desire for power exchange and creative erotic play.
Both clinicians and sex educators will learn how to use the “Appetite Grid” to help couples discuss potential play in an open-ended and precise way.
Learning objectives
1) Define BDSM
2) Discuss BDSM thoughts, desires, fantasies, expression and play using open-ended and precise language free from clinical jargon and stigma.
