Sutures are often talked about but rarely seen, due to the level of skill required. This workshop will give you a basic knowledge of technique so that you can practice and refine your suture skills. Like anything, it takes many hours of practice to get it right!
In order to suture safely, the proper medical aseptic technique must be observed. It is the first portion of the class and the foundation for suture skills and other forms of medical play. Anatomy of the skin is important to understand so that you can visualize it while performing sutures, so we will expand upon our knowledge of the layers of the skin. We will also learn about the different types of sutures, what we might use them for, sizing, suture needles and tools. Proper tool handling will be taught, so that everyone may get comfortable with handling the instruments needed.
Specific skills taught will be the instrument tie, the simple interrupted suture, the simple running suture and the simple locking suture. These four skills will give participants the basis they need to be able to develop their suturing skills.
Participants should be aware that suturing requires a great deal of practice to create a neat, clean-looking end product. Suture skills require the use of tools in ways that we aren’t used to so there is a bit of a learning curve.

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.
Medical Bio: Morgan Thorne is a retired medical professional and avid medical player. She has also worked in the body modification field, performs hook suspensions, pulls and physical ordeals.
