It Doesn’t Have to Hurt to be Impactful
A Foundations Online Class

This class is open only to students of Foundations, who have either attended in person classes or a Foundations remote orientation.

Note: If you have attended Foundations in the past, but have not been for a long time, we welcome you back to our online classes. If you have never been to Foundations and would like to join the online classes, you must first attend a Foundations orientation and also be sponsored by an established student.

Orientations are held once a month on the third Monday. For more information, send us a message or watch our FetLife discussion group for event specifics at:

It Doesn’t Have to Hurt to be Impactful

Class Description:
Perhaps you don’t really like giving or receiving pain. Perhaps little to no touching, with a light hand, stimulation and energetic connection are more your bag. Well then this class is for you.
Maybe you have seen those bunny floggers and judged them. It’s ok to admit. This class might just be for you, too.

This class is an introduction to creating a scene involving light touch and light strokes using our hands, some toys and perhaps a pervertable or two. Come join for some instruction, discussion and hands-on demo.

It isn’t about the pain. It’s about the connection. A scene doesn’t need to cause pain to be impactful!

Presenter Bio:
Hilary is a graduate of the Journey 2018 and the SF Leather Quest Class of 2020, Class Crucible. She is the current Junior Headmaster of Foundations and she has taught across all our programs in SF, SLC and Las Vegas.

Hilary identifies as many things but unquestionably as a Leatherwoman. She has a strong service heart and believes deeply that Leather is, at its core, about deep, authentic, intentional human connection. She also believes sincerely that discussion can be facilitated, on many topics, through well-placed humor balanced with respect.

While she enjoys teaching - she sees herself primarily as a facilitator of topics and a broker of connection.

The online safety and privacy of our community is of the utmost importance to us. Upon admittance you will be asked to verify a few things including; you are a Foundation student, at least 18, and will not record the class.
