July 7, 2015. New & rebooted newsletter! ForteFemme in San Francisco. Los Angeles Classes & Art [ scroll down for the full newsletter ]


Newsletter Make-Over!

New format and lots more info & resources

Some of you have been wondering what's happened to my newsletters. Well, it's back with a reboot! I recently switched over to a new ISP, which gave me an opportunity to change a few things for the better, including how to keep in touch with you. I'm using MailChimp now, which seems like a good tool. It's still new to me, so I'll keep this simple as I get familiarized with it. Any tips welcome! (I used to hand-code all my newsletter. I learned a lot about HTML, but it was so much work!)

With this new format, I hope to send out timely and interesting info in easy to absorb bites.  I also plan to incorporate fun resources and great events that I've heard about... maybe little videos... give-aways... easter eggs.... etc. What would you like to see? Please let me know!

Thanks for all your support and patience!

with love and lunacy,

"ForteFemme was a transformational experience." - Molly

"Each woman who graduated had a different look than they did when we began. The nine of us bonded over our own journeys, and rejoiced in the fact that we were not alone in our quest. The nine of us all got something back that we desperately needed, and that was ourselves. I learned that all of my weird facets are to be embraced and not shunned. I learned to be unafraid of the woman that lurks inside me that is wholly terrifying and a force to be reckoned with. That is one of the greatest gifts I have ever received, and I thankful to Midori every day for it." - Huffington Post.

Cost: $20 Space limited. Advance registration encouraged.

Learn effective rope moves to enhance control. What ever style of bondage or rope play you enjoy, these skills will boost the emotional and psychological intensity. In this hands-on class you’ll practice safe moves that are body-smart for the top side and bottom sides. Whether you enjoy Kinbaku, Shibari, Westen, Predicament, Damsel in Distress, Take-downs or Confrontational play, these techniques will integrate well into your fun! No experience necessary.

This class is an excellent preparation or addition to your Rope Dojo

Bring: Two or three lengths of rope that you usually play with. If you’re not sure, bring two or three lengths of 20 to 30 feet of ropes. Some practice ropes will be available to borrow or can be purchased in the retail store prior to the class. Yoga mat or towels are suggested but optional

Here are some ropes that Midori recommends for this class.

Wear: Comfortable clothing.

Pair attendance is encouraged, but solos are welcome as well. If you come solo, you’ll be paired with other solos for practice.

Los Angeles Summer School with Midori at The Stockroom
Humiliation Play: Make ‘em Blush, Make 'em Squirm

When: Saturday, July 25, 2015 3:30pm-6:00pm

Where: The Stockroom, 2809½ W. Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90026

Map: https://goo.gl/maps/Kp4bT

Cost: $20 Space limited. Advance registration encouraged.

Why do people get off on being embarrassed or humiliated? Is this a style of play you’ve struggled to understand? Do you want to understand how to do this well and avoid disasters? What are the potential psychological ramifications? What's different for a one-time scene vs. playing with your life partner? Emphasizing emotional safety throughout, Midori will explore a wide range of play from light teasing and embarrassment to serious humiliation.

What’s the difference between a healthy and constructive scene and one that is destructive and harmful?

Are you trying to better understand this difficult subject? Have you questioned yourself on your desires or ability to make another squirm? Or have you ever secretly wanted to be put on the spot or shown how really naughty you are? Then this class is for you!

Midori will share with you a unique model she’s developed to better understand and create an experience that is hot for all the players involved.

Excellent additional education for graduates and future attendees of ForteFemme: Women's Dominance Weekend Intensive. www.ForteFemme.com
