Kink Kicks Off V-Day Week With ‘Creative Mindfuckery’ Course

Lila Gray

SAN FRANCISCO — will be offering its first BDSM workshop with both online and offline components this Sunday. 

The class, dubbed Creative Mindfuckery, will be led by well-known BDSM educator Danarama, founder of the Two Knotty Boys, a duo who have been leading bondage workshops since 1999.

Danarama describes mindfuckery as “[using] what you learn about [partners] psychologically to create elements and toys that appeal to a very particular fear factor that they have. Because the more you get your partner into their head and out of the room, the faster it will be for you to take them to a place that is extremely significant for them emotionally and physically.”

Rathert, who heads the company’s workshop program, attributes much of the classes’ success to Danarama, “Danarama has been a force in the BDSM community for over two decades and has the most incredibly genius and twisted mind, and makes the material fun and accessible.”

Tickets for the live event, on Sunday, Feb. 9, as well as its online component, are available through
