Learning to Fly: Practicing The Fine Art of Fisting
Monday, October 15, 6:30-8:30 pm
$20 in advance, $25 at the door
Often the focus on fisting is about the act, itself: The seemingly unlikely action of inserting a hand, or balled fist, into another person’s body. However, fisting holds far more than physical promise; there is also the metaphysical promise of learning to fly. Mister Goldberg, an experienced fisting top and sex educator will address the fine art of fisting by way of Intention, Emotion, and Culmination of Desire. Part trade school mechanics and part emotional exploration, this class will provide technique sharing, dialogue, how-tos, creative thinking, and plenty of time for questions and answers. Whether you’re curious about fisting, uncertain about fisting, or an old fisting aficionado, you’ll gain a deeper knowledge of yourself, and have the opportunity to consider the profound possibilities in being wrist deep with another. This workshop welcomes people of all genders, sexual orientations, and relationship status.

Relationship coach Marcia Baczynski will teach you the techniques for asking for… and getting… what you want.
