"Striptease for Sex" with Andre Shakti

  • Sugar 1001 West 36th St Baltimore, MD (map)

Striptease for Sex: Striptease, Basic BDSM, & Kink on a Budget

Ever wish you could gracefully navigate and elongate those moments between being fully dressed and completely nude? Has a partner suggested you “dance” for them, and you were confused by what they meant? Did you scratch your head through “Showgirls” or “Flashdance” wondering how they make stripping look so effortless? Then this is the class for you!

With Andre Shakti as your guide, you’ll discover the history of striptease and learn the art of clothing removal paired with confidence-boosting exercises and seductive dancing techniques. In addition to obtaining a range of sexy tips and tricks for getting out of any piece of clothing, you’ll also learn how to incorporate a partner into the fun, and how to use the clothes you shed as props in the bedroom! This workshop is open to all, but keep in mind that participation IS required! Come dressed in clothing you can move comfortably in, and bring lots of layers! (As with all of our workshops, this workshop will not include any nudity!)
