1. THANK YOU, ARIGATO, DANKE, MERCI, GRAZI

Dear Readers,
As usual it's been a very exciting and eventful three weeks since I last wrote to you. Among the highlights are. . . Helping Babeland's LA store launch it's workshop series. Babeland.com . . . Getting to be part of Orange County Leather Assembly's first "Tastings" event. . . Participating in the BodyBound Rope convention's first weekend. . . Returning to Vancouver with Libido Events and Seattle for the Wet Spot to teach my favorite classes to familiar faces. . . My annual return to South Plains Leather Fest to teach tough new classes. . .

And then there's the BIGGIE annual event! Bang 4 The Buck Women's Strip-o-Rama and Sex Party in Seattle blew the roof off the Wet Spot on Sunday, February 19th. Over 170 women gathered for serious debauchery. 100% of the proceeds went to AIDS LifeCycle. That's a total of $3313! Many veterans of last year's Bang Party returned with hot costumes. Many more were Bang virgins, sex party virgins and strip virgins. Many cherries were popped. Each and every one who came out to the party had a lasciviously good time. In some way every woman knew that each hip gyration, hoots, hollers and good orgasms went to making the world a better place. Cool, huh? The organizers Kelly B, Lydia Mclane, Indigo Blue and myself wish to thank all the volunteers. A big thanks to the official sponsors: the Sex Positive Community Center, On Our Backs magazine, Babeland, ID Lube, The Stockroom and Daedalus Publishing. You couldn't make it to the party but you still want to help my cause? Click on the team link Team Ursa or you can also go to my personal AIDS LifeCycle page at Midori's LifeCycle Page. It's time to end the suffering and bring in the joy! I simply can't thank enough all of you heroes who support the ongoing Bang 4 The Buck efforts. . . Than you, thank you, thank you!

really been enjoying shooting erotic images of powerful men. Love! I love the people who are encouraging me to shoot.

And thanks for reading my newsletter!

3. WOMEN'S SENSUAL DOMINANCE WEEKEND INTENSIVE (BOSTON & OTTAWA)
Since 2001, small groups of women have gathered in private locations with me to learn all that I can cram into 3 days/19 hours of brain dump on the art of feminine dominance. We work on how to find their inner dominance and enjoy it with their partners. It's called Women's Sensual Dominance Weekend Intensive. This year I'm only conducting 2 of these special weekends. One will be in Ottawa, Canada and another in Boston, MA. The registration for both just opened. The class is limited to 14 women.

Very novice friendly with lots of content for those with experience as well.

Boston: April 28 to 30

Ottawa, Canada: May 26 to 28
