“I took Cleo’s class, expecting to learn more about BDSM and techniques. I was not disappointed… The class was intense, amazing, fun and of course, extremely educational. From new techniques to spirituality, every subject was touched upon and discussed in a comfortable and non-judgemental way. I would highly recommend this class, to anyone from the seasoned pro to the novice.” ~ Mistress Chun Jae-Min, San Francisco (Click here for more testimonials from professionals.)
This powerful and intimate full three day workshop is for women with personal interest and experience in BDSM who want to hone their techniques and find their very own ethical style as professional Dominas. The Intensive will deepen your understanding of fetishes and appreciation of kink, including yours! Experience BDSM play as a path to empowerment for you and your clients.
Who This Course is For
You may already be a Professional Mistress and wish to acquire new skills and refresh your style. Or you may be a private player wanting to become a Professional Domina. In three days of intimate seminars and powerful workshops, you will learn much, not only from the course material but also from the combined experience of the other participants, including my Academy’s experienced male bottoms.
This course consists of lectures, demonstrations, hands-on exercises and real time scenes. Volunteer male submissives for the guided play practice will be provided by the Academy of SM Arts. Seminar and Q/A time has been allotted for each subject area. A very comprehensive workbook (100+ pages) is provided.
