BDSM Tips & Techniquespublic - created 11/23/05
Please do not post announcements for parties here as threads. Listings for them are fine - in the appropriate section, but not amongst the threads. You may, however, post announcements of classes that are about some kind of technique. Inappropriate party listings will be deleted without further notice.
This is a tribe dedicated to the nuts and bolts of BDSM, the mechanical how-tos, not the philosophical. How to use various toys, how to make them yourself, how to build great dungeon furniture, how to do different techniques of all sorts, ideas for great mindfucks or other scenes, where to find toys and materials needed for anything to do with kink, etc. You name it, it belongs here. As long as it doesn't involve children or bestiality, bring your ideas to share with all.
Other possible ideas for topics include (but are by no means limited to):
- how to soften leather cuffs
- how to do anal play
- how to bootblack
- how to set up and run an interrogation scene
- questions on how to do certain forms of service
- how to select a singletail
- differences in different kinds of leather floggers (how different leathers feel, how to predict the sensation)
- what are sounds and how are they used
- what's involved in rape play
- evil new uses for mundane daily items
- how to get your submissive to stop topping from the bottom
- I've hit a rut in our play; where do I go from here?
- where to buy hemp (or other kinds of rope)
- How can I ask my master to do such-and-such to me without topping from the bottom?
- how to prepare your rope for use
- What's a pussy hook and where can I buy one?
- how to take care of canes
And please post your photos of your handiwork (with permission of anyone portrayed, of course).
In a nutshell, the following explains the now-prohibited content on all tribes, sadly including this one.
