Canes range amongst the most creative and versatile BDSM tools. Good canes, thanks to their controllability, can impart sensations that range from a butterfly’s caress to the sting of a dragon tail and allow for myriads of different types of play over different parts of the body. They can act as a conduit of energy between two people, offer an intense type of massage, they can relax or arouse and even give intense genital stimulation.
Even when harsh, caning sessions are not mere mechanical beatings. They are subtle and multidimensional journeys, which can involve a deep connection between the handler and the receiver. The handler must know how to read the receiver and communicate as well as have certain technical and structural skills. The receiver should be self-aware, versed in various breathing and pain management-techniques and able to verbally and non-verbally communicate physical states and boundaries.
The present workshop is designed to better understand, appreciate and use this apparently simple tool hiding wonders of potentialities. It will focus on the use of rattan canes, which offer the most variety of uses and allow for the best connection between handlers and receivers.
What will the Workshop include?
Who is this workshop designed for?
The workshop will cover the beautiful versatility of cane uses, including pleasuring and massaging, but also of course the more intense uses. It is therefore intended for people being comfortable around genuine BDSM practices.
Who is giving the workshop?
Anam is an academic and artist and develops a few passions beyond his work, like yoga, and bdsm, which he has been practicing for 30 years. In the 2000s, he set up a kink-positive resource center, community hub, fetish clothing design and bdsm tools workshop, which he co-ran for a few years in the Netherlands. Anam gave his first caning workshops in 2006. Since around that time, he has been collaborating with a friend, fellow kinkster and remarkable wood worker on their quest to create the “perfect canes”, in regards to usability, longevity and sustainability. Some people can’t help needing a holy grail quest in their lives, it seems.
