Join us for a Flogging Good Time!

Floggers are a staple in most kinkster's toybags. As someone new to the scene, or new to impact play, floggers and flogging can be an intimidating proposition. In this class we will devote time to many topics including selecting the right flogger or floggers, buying your first flogger or how to add the right floggers to your collection, beginning flogging for sensual play, safety basics for flogging including no hit zones and prime hitting zones, and learning a rhythm that suits you and your bottom. 

This will be very much a hands on experience with ample opportunity to get some great practice and practice tips. Having a partner is encouraged, but not mandatory by any means.


Rapture, or Thom as he is known by most, has made the metro Detroit area his home for more than 20 years and has spent nearly that long in the BDSM realm. A father of three, a leather craftsman, and an avid sports fan, Rapture is a member of the board of directors for the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF), the event coordinator of L.I.F.E.(Leather Institute For Education) Detroit, a long time co-host of monthly BDSM parties Wicked and Dark Nirvana, and long time educator.

Rapture has presented classes all across the midwest and east coast including caning, single tails, impact play, BDSM 101 and safety at events such as Twisted Tryst, TESFest, COPE, Ohio SMART, Beat Me in St. Louis, Sanctuary Dallas, Madtown Kinkfest, NELA Fetish Flea, Sinergy, GRALE (Grand Rapids, MI), and many more.

Within the lifestyle, Rapture started his journey years ago as a horribly smart-assed bottom and submissive. Realizing that his smart mouth was not conducive to submission, he began switching, and eventually a nearly full time Top/Dominant. While having a wide range of interests in play, his mostly positive experiences as a bottom with canes, and many other things, led to his determination to become proficient with as many of them as possible as a top.
