“How to Administer a Proper Spanking” will present the most recognizable aspect of the BDSM lifestyle in a playful and demystifying way, and introduce the audience to that gateway drug of kink: spanking! Everyone is familiar with it, some of you may have bashfully tried it, others may be closeted-yet-seasoned spankophiles, but how many of you have actually been walked through the finer points, such as positioning your partner, how to hold your hand, and even where to hit? Some of you may be asking, “Why would anyone want to do this?” The reality is that people really DO this, and enjoy it, and contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t make you a complete sexual deviant. Learn to approach this fun activity with confidence! But more importantly, learn about the concept of “RACK: Risk Aware Consensual Kink” as we explore what is meant by consent, something often completely overlooked by the media’s depictions of kink.
