Objectification in the kinky sense can be defined as “actions where one or more parties is treated like a non-sentient entity most generally for erotic purposes”.
Do you get off on the idea of serving your Dominant as inanimate object such as a foot stool? Does being referred to in the 3rd person make you tingle all over? Do you crave to be boiled down into just a toy for someone’s pleasure? Maybe you’re on the other side and want to bind your play partner into the form of a coat rack and giggle devilishly as they get more and more jackets and hats tossed upon them while they try to maintain pose…
This workshop will outline the psychological aspects of objectification play as well as provide base level how to’s and tips for playing in risk aware ways. There will also be time for creative brainstorming (or manifesting) how you might want to implement objectification or the ritualistic aspects of this type of play into your own lives. Consider this as a workshop with a bit of “deviant Think Tank” thrown in for good measure!
