Fundamentals of Feminine Dominance: Archetypes of Desire

with Midori!

This class will be recorded (only the spotlighted host will show in the recording).


Join Midori for an exciting, new virtual class to help you express your archetype of desire!

Fetlife Link:

Have you found yourself pausing when someone asks, “What are you really into?” or “What type of D/s do you enjoy?”

Having a hard time visualizing what you might enjoy in that scene your partner wants? Perhaps you’ve found yourself not quite loving the play you’ve enjoyed in the past but you aren’t sure what to ask for in negotiations?

Contrary to popular assumptions, knowing what we really want in play can be challenging. It’s also quite normal to not know everything about your desires. Auntie Midori is here to help.

This is an exciting, new virtual class from the founder of ForteFemme Women’s Dominance Intensive & The Art of Feminine Dominance. Part of a series, exploring the fundamentals of feminine dominance, Midori will guide you through a unique process to help you identify your desire archetype and learn how to embody and express it through play.

Note: “Feminine Dominance” is about a state of mind and how it can be explored through play, not necessarily gender experience. This class is open to all genders, orientations, and anyone with curiosity about Topping (whether a little or a lot).

We will cover…

  • How to identify your core desires that underlie your current play.
  • Begin to identify what your partner is really asking for in a scene.
  • Identify the types of scenes that you won’t enjoy before you get into them.
  • Learn Midori’s infamous Desires Chart and how to use it to break out of the box for better scene satisfaction.
  • Special guest, Laura Antoniou, analyzes the play potential in Midori’s Fem Dom Desires Chart.
  • Consider scenes that you might not have thought of and that just might delight you.
  • Get practical tips for playing with your newfound clarity and desires.

No experience necessary.
All Genders & Orientations welcome.

Come prepared to engage in thought exercises & discussions, deep dive into your needs, and take lots of notes (so many fun ideas!)
