@ conducted a rope workshop at one of the local colleges attended by mostly millennials. His background matched their interest: he liked goth fashions,
He presented a brief history of bdsm. There were lots of nervous laughs when he remarked how kink could be a useful skill for a student to earn a little extra money. Then he went on to a demonstration of spanking and flogging of a female. He explained that only a small amount of spanking was necessary to get her endorphins going. He next demonstrated his masterful flogging technique of her butt cheeks with a soft suede flogger. She didn’t wince once.Then he showed us how to flick the singletail whip and various canes. Next he demonstrated the ways to tie her hands and how to make a chest harness with rope.
If you’re new to rope I recommend a workshop or watching Kink U’s video tutorials .
After the presentation, ropes were distributed to attendees to practice on each other. The groups that formed were largely of the same gender (few m-f pairings).
The future participants to bdsm culture may more resemble college kids than the older Leather folk one still sees at the local street fairs .
Absent were heterosexual couples of either maledom or femdom.
Of course, many attendees may have only a slight interest in kink. But there were same-sex couples that seemed keen on spicing up their relationship.
The bdsm culture is changing with the next generation as it becomes more acceptable to Millennials.
