From hair pulling to being pinned down, from spanking to negotiated face slapping — there are dozens of ways to add intensity to your sex. But getting rough means a bit more planning and communication than you might be used to. This class will show you a variety of rough sex techniques you can use to spice up your own bedroom play as well as teach you to do them safely. Stella will discuss power dynamics and roleplaying, building satisfying scenes, and how to ask for what you want and communicate with your partner about what you'd like to try. Demos on hair pulling, consensual slapping and hitting, and more will be included!
Bring your curiosity and an open mind and get ready to turn things up a notch!
