“My mind was blown by how succinctly Midori was able to communicate the basic alignments within kinky sexual desire—and help us find the words to express where our appetites lie at any given point in time (because yes, they do change!).”

Zoe Lignon, Owner of  Spectrum Boutique and ForteFemme Alumni. 

“Aside from getting to meet a bunch of very amazing peers, the content and exercises in the course created a groundwork for being comfortable with my own desires, and a good structure for expressing and communicating my desires in a way that felt authentic to me. Insightful in ways that I couldn’t have fathomed before going, I have much better tools for creating the relationships I desire with people who also desire me.”


-Albatross, The Wanted Man attendee

“The weekend left me revitalized and feeling something I have not felt in a long time. Many moments (if not all) of the weekend were eye opening and your exercises were very revealing of my inner self… I feel for the first time I have found a place of peace and true contentment… Thank you for sharing your gift and helping me find my gift.”

 Ms Scorpio, ForteFemme Alumni

“ForteFemme… launched me into a whole new level of awareness. I found camaraderie with amazing women and inspiration from their ideas and insights–along with the wise and invaluable advice and guidance that Midori provided for each of us. We laughed, we cried–there are no words to describe the power of this experience–you really must go through the process for yourself. This is truly the start of a whole new life for me.”

-Christina, ForteFemme 

“Rope Dojo completely changed my life. It gave me the tools that I needed to be able to play with rope confidently and I was completely blown away by Midori’s method. I really admire [her] ability to express things that are personal in a clear articulate fashion. You literally give people the tools and confidence to be able to safely apply everything into your real life bed room and HAVE FUN!!”

K + R, Rope Dojo attendee

“Sometimes challenging, often playful, the ForteFemme weekend left me with much better tools to decide on, communicate, and get that which would please me.  I treasure my new Forte Femme sisters, and am excited about the new adventures ahead!” 


-Julie D., ForteFemme Alumni

“Midori said this would help “from the bedroom to the boardroom.” I didn’t realize it will also help with parenting my teens, hiring my gardener, my parent-teacher conference, buying tires, receiving random foot rubs, improving my friendship, and bringing my sex life to unthinkably amazing levels.”

Tahoe, ForteFemme Alumni,

“The Dojo Cadre were not only knowledgeable but were extremely personable. Midori’s style of teaching has her unique touch that truly gets you to the “heart of the art” of rope. She explains the usefulness of rope tying in ways that are easy to remember but mostly got us thinking about the “how” and “why” of creating a specific mood by getting us back in touch with the passion we have for rope.”
