Educational Meeting! The ABCs and 123s of Using a Whip w Master Rob &Lord Demian
7:10pm New People's Orientation (FREE), 7:30-9 Educational meeting ($5 for members, $10 for nonmembers), 9-10:30 MUNCH! (whatever you order to eat!). Have you ever watched someone using a whip in the dungeon and thought to yourself, “I’d love to try that”, but didn’t know where to begin? Have you ever watched a scene and thought, that’s badass, or wow, look at the control he/she has? Need some practice time or critique of your technique? This is your chance for some hands-on learning with and about a whip. We will be working on beginner and intermediate skills and techniques. If you have a whip, please bring it. Three to four foot whips are preferred, but we can work with what you have. We will also have some whips available to borrow. It is suggested that you wear safety glasses and a wide brim hat for safety, although not required. Master Rob Getting involved in local kink communities over eight years ago, Rob has traveled a long and windy road on his journey to become a Master. Bestowed by his peers, he does not take the title lightly and feels that the journey is one he believes to be never ending. He lives in a 24/7 Master/slave household as the owner and Master of slave lori, his wife of 30 years. Active in the Baltimore Educational and Social Society (BESS), as well as MAsT: Towson and the Master/slave Conference, Rob has presented to local groups and participated in panel discussions. He is proud to be an alumnus of MTTA. Rob strongly believes in giving back to the community and volunteers at various community activities and events. Lord Demian Lord Demian is a second generation Baltimore kinster. Living a 24/7, Master/slave life with slave debbie. Member of MAsT Towson, MTTA masters class 2017, MSC staff 2018, MTTA/BESS/Baltimore Playhouse volunteer. Whips became a part of my life as a young child bored on a horse farm. When the goal was "Don't put your eye out". Now the goal is "Don't put their eye out". The focus on safety has never changed. The more accurate you are the safer you and your partner are.
