Corsets: Waist Training & Tightlacing
May 2, 2021 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
Corsets are the quintessential kinky/gothic/steampunk clothing item. They are worn by people of all orientations and all genders for a variety of reasons. Corsets are meant to enhance the silhouette, trim the waist and give a pleasing shape to the body. Both waist training or tight lacing are a form of temporary body modification. Learn the ins and outs of these two, often complementary, techniques in the Corsets: Wasit Training & Tightlacing Workshop.
We will take a peek at corset construction – including the construction of men’s corsets – so that we can better identify appropriate corsets when making a purchase. You will learn how to tell the difference between a fashion corset and one designed to reduce the waist. Examples will be provided, including a try-on, to see how these different corsets look on a real body.
Understanding the difference between waist training and tight lacing is important to begin one’s corseting journey. We will discuss the differences and similarities, as well as looking at examples of both forms of using corsets.
Finally, there will be an in-depth look at tight lacing and waist training, so that you can do both in a safe and comfortable manner. Participants will learn how to properly begin a waist training regimen that is sustainable long term. Subjects such as sizing, sleeping in your corset and day-to-day difficulties will be discussed. Further resources for waist training will be provided.
Please note that this class is open to people of all gender identities. It is presented in gender-neutral terms. We will explore corseting for all genders and how to achieve a more dramatic silhouette. Non-traditional body types are very welcome!

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.
