Enhance Your Play Through Three Degrees of Touch with Master Hines!

with Master Hines!

Join Master Hines for a dynamic class on the transformative power of touch in SM relationships!


In S&M, there is a lot of emphasis put on toys and implements but less on physical contact and the importance of touch. While good technique with toys is obviously important, touch also plays a crucial role in creating connection and headspace during a scene.

There are many ways to touch during a scene and each can communicate something different. The question is, what are the techniques and how do we get the most out of the natural human instinct for touch?

In this class, Master Hines will break down touch into three categories of expression: love, power, and sadism. He will discuss different techniques for each and demonstrate how each can be useful in enhancing your scene by making a greater connection with your partner.

This is truly an important and dynamic class that you won’t want to miss!

Master Hines is available for Professional sessions and private instruction at Black Thorn and other venues in the Bay Area.
