SPECIAL PERFORMANCE BY MIDORI
Voted 2013 Best Sex Educator by SF Weekly Magazine and “50 Fierce Femmes” in 2014, Sexuality educator, author, and San Francisco-based artist Midori has made an amazing career out of being the traveling coach on the art of creative and sensual living.
Dubbed “the supernova of kink” by Dan Savage, Midori is known for her hilarious and practical classes on enhancing sexual fulfillment, boosting confidence and expanding personal growth. Native of Tokyo, Japan, she brings a unique perspective of pleasure and authentic living.
She wrote the English-language book on Shibari, Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage, as well as Wild Side Sex: The Book of Kink and twisted sci-fi in Master Han’s Daughter.
She leads transformative small group intensives, including Rope Dojo ®, ForteFemme: Women’s Dominance Weekend Intensive and Passionate Bonds: Creating Effective D/s Protocol.
When she’s not traveling and teaching, Midori is creating provocative and haunting art and performances.
