SOJ Presents: Rough Body Play with Master Hines POSTPONED!

Following the "Shelter in Place" orders for many Bay Area counties, we have cancelled April events. This class will be rescheduled. Stay tuned for more info.

Rough Body Play

Rough Body Play can be erotic, painful but also a lot of fun. This class will show you techniques that will help make rough body play fun, safe, and if you are so inclined, painfully sadistic. For players not wanting pain or extreme play, I will also demonstrate softer approaches to rough body play showing how even mild roughness can be pleasurable and effective. I will use a few toys but mostly I will focus on how to use your body as a toy through grabbing, slapping, punching and various ways of applying pressure points while tussling. I will explain the psychological significance of rough body play for bottoms and discuss negotiation, consent and ways to maximize safely for both players. Be aware, this form of play is considered extreme with potential for actual physical injury. This class is not about take-downs or combative fighting.

The Presenter:

BDSM Educator and Professional Dominant. Master Hines formally joined the BDSM community in 1992 in Atlanta Georgia and moved to the bay area in 2003. Core to Master Hines’ BDSM philosophy is spirituality through power exchange. His technique and approach to SM puts heavy emphasis on the spiritual connection between Top and bottom. His play ranges from sensual to sadistic incorporating many styles, toys and fetishes.
