Bawdy Storytelling

Are you ready to show all the Masters & Maestros & Big Bros what you’ve got? Told live onstage at Bawdy’s 15 year Anniversary event, Educator, Artist and Rope Dojo founder Midori takes us on a bifurcated journey from flying warriors in a Shaolin Temple to an all-Male Shibari gathering in a Tokyo Swinger’s Club. Should you hide who you are so that male-dominated society isn’t threatened - or is it time to flip the script? #Rope #SoStrong #Dabbler #Feminist #Shibari #BeautifulLadyCompanion 


Song: ‘Take it like a Man’ (Dragonette)

About the storyteller:


Trailblazing educator, sexologist, artist, and irritant to banality, Midori founded Rope Dojo and ForteFemme: Women's Dominance Intensive. She penned the first English instruction book on Shibari titled, "Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage" in 2001, paving the way for the popularity of rope. Dan Savage calls her the "Super Nova of Kink," while others affectionately call her Auntie Midori for her cool, tell-it-like-it-is, funny, reality-based teaching. She is also the author of "Wild Side Sex," "Master Han's Daughter," and "Silk Threads.”

You can learn, laugh and enjoy her special online classes, events and art at
