Canes: From Sensual to Severe
February 7 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM EST
Canes are an implement that strikes fear into even the most masochistic of bottoms because they are often used incorrectly. In the right hands, canes can be a wonderfully sensuous toy as well as a harsh tool for discipline.
The workshop starts off with an anatomy and safety lesson. We learn about how the force is transferred from the cane to the skin and why canes can be dangerous in the wrong hands. We will discuss the precautions that should be taken when playing with a toy that is made from a natural, porous material that can also draw blood under the right circumstances.
The workshop will teach you about appropriate cane materials and cane maintenance. A good cane can last many years with proper care and a little TLC. We will discuss the differences between straight canes and canes with a curved handle as well as learning cane terminology.
We will learn a number of different cane strokes and when to apply them. We will focus both on lighter play techniques, as well as ‘cold caning’ or punishment caning for those more interested in the discipline side of canes.

Morgan Thorne has been practising BDSM all her adult life. She got an introduction to kink through the Queer community in the early 1990s and knew she had found ‘her people’.
Morgan has also spent a decade working as a Professional Dominant, which has allowed her to expand her skills as both a Top and a Dominant. Morgan has been offering workshops, lectures and BDSM training for a number of years as well. She has a successful Youtube channel where she educates about D/s relationships, BDSM basics and various kinky skills.
She is the author of two successful books about BDSM, including “Exploring BDSM: A Workbook for Couples (or More!) Discovering Kink“. A follow-up book is expected in early 2021.
Morgan identifies as both a Sadist and a Dominant. She enjoys playing with a variety of people of all orientations/genders/identities. BDSM is an integral part of her personal, romantic relationships. Morgan is both asexual and pan-romantic.
Prior to her work as a Professional Dominant, Morgan worked in health care. This has allowed her to gain a more thorough understanding of health and safety concerns in kink. She retired due to an injury that lead to chronic pain and disability. It also spurred her interest in medical play, a way to continue to use the skills she learned in health care and to find comfort in the loss of a much-loved career.
Morgan has been active in various forms of activism, including LGBTQIA rights and sex worker rights. She is a strong advocate for equality and the human rights of all people.
