This Week: Whips in the Park Returns!

Love to throw whips? Like to learn how? Just curious?

Join fellow whip enthusiasts for a casual weekly get-together. Sunday afternoons at 1 pm in the southwest corner of Ruth Hardy Park, near the corner of Tamarisk and Via Miraleste. With Drew Kramer and Peter Fiske.

This event is 100% at your own risk. Even for people with years of experience, accidents can and do happen. Protective gear (long sleeve shirts, safety or sunglasses, hats) is strongly recommended.

Oh, and we live in the desert. So bring water!

Next Week: Learn Mummification

For our fourth Kink Exploratorium, we will provide hands-on experience in mummification using materials that are easy to obtain and use.

Mummification is a form of bondage in which the bottom experiences the full restriction of being wrapped, but has the option to break out at any time. The kind of experience the bottom has once wrapped is negotiated with the top who is wrapping him.

We will demonstrate the technique of wrapping with plastic wrap and duct tape.  Given we have enough people, we will wrap anyone who wants the experience and who has brought the necessary materials. It takes at least two people to wrap one. It is best to be naked while being wrapped.


Bring Your Own Supplies

Materials you will need are: at least 100 feet of plastic wrap, 50 feet of duct tape, four wash cloths, blindfold or a mask, ear plugs, safety scissors, massage table or some place to be laid down comfortably, sheet and pillow if you need one.


The Details

This Mummification Workshop will be held on Sunday, November 24 at 2 pm. The location is the Desert Center for Sexuality Awareness, 71777 San Jacinto Drive Suite 204, Rancho Mirage. The Center is located next door to Planned Parenthood, just west of The River. Your instructor is Nick Tancredi.
