Classic Discipline Workshop

Classic Discipline Workshop Description

The hands-on workshop companion to Morgan Thorne’s new book “A Guide to Classic Discipline“! (See more books by Morgan Thorne)

We begin by exploring the historical inspiration for many forms of BDSM play, based on which areas the group finds most interesting. Each Classic Discipline Workshop is unique, covering slightly different material, tailored to the audience.

We will discover the differences between punishment and “funishment”. Learn what is involved in punishment dynamics and how we can use those elements to create our own dynamic or apply them to funishment (whichever you prefer).

We will then get into the practical application of those elements, either for punishment or for more authentic play. Get an understanding of pacing, intensity and how to structure these scenes.

We end the Classic Discipline Workshop with some hands-on training time, based on the previously indicated interests of the group. We will learn about the use of the implements of discipline. There will be ample time for trying out implements and asking questions.
