Continually Seducing Consent: ForteFemme by Midori | Vanessa Pinto.

ForteFemme with Midori   Leave a comment

Do you seek authentic empowerment, confidence and pleasure with a bit of edge in your erotic life? Would you like to be the best sensual dominant you can be? Are you seeking education that’s real and practical with skills that will serve you the rest of your life?

ForteFemme is a weekend-long intensive workshop led by international sexuality educator Midori that will transform your ideas about sensual dominance and erotic empowerment.
Literally, forte means “strong.” In fencing, forte is the strongest part of the sword; in music, it means that the instruments should be played not just loudly, but at their strongest, most heroic levels. At ForteFemme, you’ll discover your own strength and find that it can be elegant, feminine, and authentically you. During this weekend of personalized instruction, Midori will guide you in learning how power play can bring sensual pleasure and new intimacy to your relationship with your partner.

Each weekend is limited to ten women and held in luxurious venues chosen for privacy and comfort. Through discussion, demonstration, and personalized instruction, you and your fellow students will learn how to negotiate limits and desires, how to orchestrate a scene, essential techniques, and much more. In addition, you will explore the emotional and psychological issues of BDSM in a loving relationship.

If you have a partner, we encourage them to join in the Lab segment on Sunday afternoon as well as the Saturday night field trip.

bc425f09027fd13912ac10b6728e4ea3I don’t typically write serious subject matter on this blog, but a few months ago I wrote about my desire to seek therapy for a myriad of issues I’ve faced for years. A woman of my word, I began going almost immediately.

I don’t like talking to friends or family members about my problems so the idea of talking to a stranger about my innermost thoughts really put me off. Luckily, I found someone totally aces on the first try, and she has taught me some very valuable things in our time together so far.

How you feel about yourself is not a democracy.

I would never have described myself as a “people pleaser” until I started seeing her. Now I can’t believe I never saw it before. In every facet of my life I am living for someone else: at work, in relationships, with my family, among friends. No…

People who are into kinky sex may be psychologically healthier than those who are not, says a new study.

Researchers found that people who were involved in BDSM — bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism — scored better on certain indicators of mental health than those who did not bring kink into the bedroom.

The study, which was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine in May, surveyed 902 people who practice BDSM and 434 people who prefer so-called “vanilla” (non-kinky) sex. Each person filled out questionnaires regarding their personalities, general well-being, sensitivity to rejection and style of attachment in relationships. The participants were not aware of the purpose of the study.

Despite past assumptions that BDSM proclivities might be correlated with previous abuse, rape or mental disorders (research has shown that they’re not), this survey found that kinky people actually scored better on many indicators of mental health than those…
