Workshop Description: 
PADDLES beyond punishment!  The many uses of wood paddles, presented by Chris Wiese
     Paddling is a large part of BDSM Play. There are many different types of paddles available in the marketplace.  Each has its own karma based on the materials used in construction.  Paddles constructed of wood vary based on the type of tree or shrub.  Fortunately for us, there are some very exotic woods available that make many wood paddles a piece of art as well.  People buy them because they are beautifully variegated and nice to look at, have wonderful markings, or because of the hardness and different impacts.  Never are two exactly the same as nature designs each wood differently.
     How you use a paddle is the most important part of playing with one.  Like every other implement in your toy bag, it is not the toy but the person using it that makes the difference.  One person can take the hardest of wood paddles and use it very sensually. Another might just use it for pain, but not be aware of the damage it can do.
     In this workshop, our presenter Chris will guide you through the proper use of wood paddles during BDSM play.  Chris will cover how to safely use a paddle, from body parts and position, to how to swing that paddle in your hand. His goal in this workshop “is to educate people and show them they are not just used for punishment or heavy scenes, but are also for the more sensual and lighter play scenes. This workshop includes time for demo and audience interaction.
