Event description

An exploration into the art and techniques of bastinado- a traditional form of coporal punishment involving striking the soles of the feet. Bastinado is a varied and intense form of play that appeals to a wide range of kinksters. 
We will delve into the history and contemporary applications of bastinado from the sensual to the sadistic.

This workshop will include a theory and practical component.

Theory: 

General safety, consent and negotiation of a scene

Introduction to bastinado

Anatomy of the foot and how to play safely 

Exploring different techniques you can use from traditional to more modern approaches.

Demonstration and QA:

Station 1. Canes 

Station 2. Floggers 

Station 3. Electro
