Midori’s Scarf Bondage and The Scarf Dildo Harness

Fit's Like a Charm! Midori’s Scarf Dildo Harness & Scarf Bondage. Midori came up with this totally simple, amazing DIY Dildo Harness design. It’s also known as the Midori Elegant Harness. It’s great for all body types, genders, configuration of bits. It works great with after-market-store-bought or original-issue-self-sprouted bits. Remarkably stable! Fantastic for insertable dildos.
Clever and simple. She’ll have the necessary supplies, but you’re encouraged bring your own dildos. Scarves will be available - but if you have a couple of long scarves or ropes, you can bring them too.

WhipFit: Flogging based exercise

Think air guitar, shadow boxing or spinning poi! No experience necessary. Partner not needed. Solos totally welcome. We won’t be whacking on people’s bodies. We might use hands as gentle targets. Wear comfortable clothes that's easy to move in. Bring Floggers a pair or single, either is fine. Many of the movements will be done with one in each hand. Make sure it's the right length for your pace. If you are new to this, go for a lighter weight. If you want a little extra resistance and exercise, use a heavier one……… Don't have a flogger? No problem! Anything you can grip with one hand and a little flexibility will work. A hand towel, a feather duster, one sock with a tennis ball in it, a bouquet of flowers, etc. Want a more challenging workout? Wear some extra weights on your body. Try a heavier object to swing........
