The Art of Caning – From Sensual to Sadistic

This workshop will delight those who have only experienced or perceived caning as an instrument for masochists and sadists. For most people the idea of caning brings up images of sadistic scenes, excruciating pain and extreme marks and bruises. Though these are possible, there are also more sensual approaches to caning. In this class Master Hines present a broad view of caning including: 

• Practice techniques

• Fun areas of the body to cane

• How to produce connection while caning

• Caning games

• Sensuous vs Sadistic

• American, English and Power styles of caning

• And more…

This workshop is sure to interest both novice and experienced players, particularly those of you who are afraid of canes and also those of you who want to learn a wider range of caning techniques.

The House of Kush is an international leather association founded by Domina Atua. With the collective effort of its House members and in-service members, it is committed to cannabis education, safe consumption, explicit prior permission, consensual application, and current practices. HOK acknowledges the medicinal and recreational benefits of cannabis: promoting safe, enthusiastic consensual consumption, overall. Our mission, beyond cannakink and kink education and safety practices , is to advocate for those incarcerated for cannabis-related crimes and suffering the consequences of a legal system woefully behind its recreational laws.

The House of Kush does NOT support scening under the influence of cannabis while under bondage nor with implements nor under any form of enthusiastic consent/CNC duress play. We do support sensual smoke play AFTER enthusiastic consent is given in a coherent, sober state and BEFORE the usage of any THC infused cannabinoids.
