ABOUT MIDORI (美登里)

Born and raised in Japan, then spending her formative years in 90’s San Francisco safer sex and alt sex activists circles, Midori brings a multicultural and holistic approach to education and discussion of kink, BDSM, and consent.

Dubbed the “Supernova of Kink” by Dan Savage, Midori emerged from the Sex Positive movement in San Francisco in the early 1990s as a grassroots activist educator to became a well-regarded educator and thinker on BDSM sexuality, kink, consent, and sex ways in Japan and the US.

Midori founded Rope Dojo in 2003, ForteFemme Women’s Dominance Weekend Intensive in 2004, and Consent Dojo in 2020.

She is the Co-director of Education for Kink Informed Certification through Sexual Health Alliance. She has served as advisor for many organizations and companies on matters of BDSM, kink, and consent.

Her teaching style and strength lay in her ability to deconstruct and distill complex matters of desire into accessible lessons with humor and humanity.

She contributed the chapter on BDSM and women of the Asian diaspora in “An Intersectional Approach to Sex Therapy: Centering the Lives of Indigenous, Racialized, and People of Color”, and has contributed to numerous articles, columns, works of fiction, and instructional books.
