Third Saturday: Pressure Point Manipulation

  • Cleveland Play Space (map)

Make em dance, make em squeal!

A frank, and honest demonstration of pressure play between Mattaoh and Fox-Quinn. This class will cover the topics of pressure points, application of pressure, and how to make them dance and squeal!

With a focus on playing with your sub, the class will field all questions and do its best to bring both a bit of science, as well as a lot of fun to the table. Hands on training will be offered, and the crowd is welcome to participate with partners of their own during the class.

Act 1.
Negotiations and Safety.
Covering what to ask, what to bring, and what to keep in mind when engaging in this kind of play.

Act 2.
Finding the sweet spot.
Both about finding nerve clusters and spots to play with, as identifying what type of play pressure play can fit great with and how it can match to your style.

Act 3.
Knowing your and their limitations.
How to keep an eye on your sub, and yourself to stop before you do real damage, or put them down for the night.

Act 4.
While questions will be answered throughout the class, this is a formal time set aside to go over anything you may have had and didn't want to ask just yet.

Act 5.
Free play.
Time to have a little fun! The Fox-Quinn and Mattaoh duo will split up and walk around and offer hands on advice and suggestions, and mingle till we all decide its a dead horse!

This class should help shine a light of the activity for newcomers, and old timers alike. And even if you don't learn anything, you'll get to enjoy the yips, yelps, and whines of Fox-Quinn!


Matt, has been in the community for the past ten years. While he has only been seriously active for the past five, he has always had a fascination for BDSM, Kink, and Lifestyle adaptation. With a heavy focus on Primal play, and rough dominance, Matt has taught several classes on how to incorporate rough style body play into everyday kinks. A firm believer in doing more with less, and turning your hands into toys, he delights in any opportunity to get down on the ground, and cause some pain.

Fox, has been in the community for over seven years and as a rule, is constantly exploring the depths of her creativity to understand both herself and her desires. Identifying as a Primal and a Bottom, she is not always the submissive type. Currently going to school for a double major in both Criminal Justice and Zoology, Fox likes to bring an analytical mind to everything she does, and get to the heart of Kink as well as lifestyle exploration.
