This workshop will cover the basic techniques of using a cane for pain and pleasure. We will also discuss some of the history and traditions surrounding canes, the types of canes available today and their care. This toy strikes fear into the souls of many bottoms at its very mention – come find out WHY. Volunteers from the audience are welcome.
