Sex Schoolin’: Midori’s Expert Guide to Sensual Bondage

Midori’s Expert Guide to Sensual Bondage

Midori’s coming to town!
To commemorate this legendary sex educator’s upcoming workshops at Come As You Are here in Toronto, I wanted to find one of her DVDs that can appeal to people who are exploring their interest in bondage. And Midori’s Expert Guide to Sensual Bondage is just that. But it won’t just appeal to novices—it is a great resource for anyone who is fit to be tied.
The DVD (directed by Tristan Taormino) starts right in with Midori talking directly to us about the ins and outs of sensual bondage. While I don’t recall it ever being explicitly stated, I do think there is a differentiation being made between sensual and more involved bondage. Maybe you want to call it hardcore, maybe extreme. But what we’re seeing here is bondage that related directly to engaging in sex, and incorporating restraint into sexual play. 
When Midori talks, you can’t help but be entranced. Her cadence and words melt in your ears and her presence is calm and thoughtful. Some sex educators are energetic. Some are direct. Some some humour. Because of the subject matter, Midori’s presentation is both enticing and reassuring.
However, it isn’t as if she holds back, treading on eggshells. In this DVD, Midori is out to teach and in the first 12 minutes you will learn so much about bondage! Techniques, equipment, health and safety—all of it is covered in an efficient and entertaining way. I particularly enjoy the focus on the implements you can use in your restraint play. Not only does she give hints about what to look for in store-bought items, she also lists things around the house you can use to try out your new-found interest. Or, if you’re already into the tie-me-up arts, and in a pinch, you can also take advantage of items like scarves, belts and more!
As with most sex ed videos, it concludes with two scenes depicting some of the knowledge that has just been imparted. I often skip these, or just casually watch them. I often don’t find them particularly instructive and I guess I just have this divide in my head between watching sex ed and watching smut. 
However, it is essential to watch this one! In the first scene, Midori is right in there, continuing to teach. She sets up the performers in a bed, shows off the rigging, demonstrates some proper technique and then had them go at it. A lot more information is shared! And then, well, the first scene is really hot…and the second is even better!
I consider Midori’s Expert Guide to Sensual Bondage an essential part of my sex ed collection, mostly because I could listen to Midori talk all day and all night. When you want to learn something new, or even just refresh your skills, it is best to go to an expert. And when it comes to bondage, you don’t have to look far to find her.
