The Erotic Art of Knife Play
Instructed by Orpheus Black
The Erotic Art of Knife Play is a dynamic class in which you can sharpen your knife and sword skills with Master Orpheus Black. He will cover the different types of knives and their specific uses, as well as how to use them safely in your play sessions. Orpheus will go through the process of choosing the correct knife for you, your scene, and your sub. In doing this, He will examine the relationship between the unholy trinity: the Dom, the blade, and the sub! He will also share info on what other items can be used in place of knives (otherwise known as pervertables!) which will produce the same effect for your sub.
Blade technique and control will be discussed – ie: how to find a knife’s dynamic focal or balance point. This portion of the class will also provide different tips and tricks to help you to improve your control over your blade and your sub. The differences between blade play, cutting, and blood-letting will also be reviewed. Orpheus will perform a number of demos, and He encourages all who wish to try out these techniques to participate. As always, emphasis on the importance of safety and hygiene will be covered throughout the entire class.
