I spoke with FrozenMeursault, sadist, geek, instructor, nice guy on Sunday afternoon. He will be presenting four classes on Monday and Tuesday, November 2nd and 3rd. ~~Celia
He will be teaching Monday afternoon on Caning, Monday evening is “Anatomy for Rope Bondage” and Tuesday evening is “Good Responses to Bad Problems.”
Why do you think that folks find caning intimidating?
I think folks have a specific image of caning gained from pornography or stories, an image of a bottom bent over a desk, the top standing several feet away, and a long rattan cane being swung hard to leave clear and severe marks.
It can feel disconnected, cold…for a lot of people that creates an artificial barrier between them and giving it a try.
What would you say to folks who are thinking about it?
It’s a very distinct sensation. It can be modulated to be more intimate and less severe. It provides a sensation that’s different from most other implements. Adding caning gives a different thing to feel or experience during a scene.
What’s your favorite thing about caning?
The severity. Just kidding. Not really though. I’m a sadist. I love when a partner allows me to be severe with them and we can experience that vulnerability together.
My style of caning is not traditional at all. It tends to involve very little distance between my partner and I. I love the marks that are left and how clearly they can be seen and felt. I derive pleasure from the marks themselves and from the style that I bring to caning.
