How do you start to sexually experiment without feeling like you've lost control of the situation? Midori, educator, sexologist, and author of The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage, joins Wendy to discuss finding your own adventures in the bedroom. Listen in as Midori explains how we all possess the skill, experience, and knowledge to guide us on our sexual journey and how we can tap into that power.
Midori's reputation as an authority and leading expert on alternative pleasures stem not only from her unique and entertaining process of teaching concrete skills, but in her ability to deconstruct and distill complex matters of desire into surprisingly accessible lessons with eloquence and humanity.
She’s known for tackling challenging topics with fresh and relevant insights. She calls this her “head-heart-hands” method to create a space where people are allowed individual self-exploration. Fundamentally, she is motivated by helping people to create authentic and intimate relationships while emphasizing self-actualization, shame reduction, acceptance, and justice.
Known for her ability to teach with equal parts expertise and heart, her intensives and pop-up classes are often booked months in advance. She is best known for her transformative small-group educational intensives, Rope Dojo and ForteFemme: Women’s Dominance Weekend Intensive.
She is the author of The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage, Wild Side Sex, and Master Han's Daughter. She has also contributed her expertise and voice in numerous articles, columns, works of fiction, and instructional books.
When she's not traveling and teaching, she's creating provocative and haunting art and performances. She invites coaching and private consultation requests via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
