This workshop will discuss the definition of humiliation. Some have called this type of play to be ‘edge play’ but is it and if so, why is it? For those of us that use humiliation, do we use it in real punishment or is it just play or can it be both? We will discuss how do you determine what is humiliation and is it different than embarrassment? How do you recognize it and how can you use it to your advantage? We will also discuss what are some of the pitfalls of this type of play. When done effectively, humiliation play can be both fun and exciting.
