This year's Masterclass event probably has one of our most interesting line-ups of presenters.
As well as stunning visual demos, there will be a number of open discussions and talks on some of the hot topics and current trends in the kink community.

FLOGGING FOR BEGINNERS (sir) Ian - Recon: Bondagedream - has been an active participant in the Leather scene for two decades, and is the Founding President of the "Southern California Bondage Club". Sir Ian leads this class for beginners who want to learn about flogging. "There is no one right way to flog, but there are a lot of wrong ways if you want a particular result, and your actions don't match." He will be discussing types of floggers, methods of hitting, headspaces, areas to hit, body signals, and if there is time, some guided practice.
QUEERLY FETISH OR FETISHLY QUEER?
Are queer and fetish more than just interesting bedfellows? Neal (they/them) will facilitate an open discussion on how these seemingly different worlds intersect. The discussion will identify what queer is and how fetish sits within the queer arena, the role of gender in fetish including a discussion on hypermasculinity, femininity or the lack of gender, and they question what a fetish "safe space" is and how the gay/bi/queer male fetish scenes interact with other fetish scenes.
ROPE SUSPENSION Rope Bondage Master aka RBM (Twitter @ropebondagemstr), has done demos at a few major European events. At FWL2022 he leads a rope suspension demo.

You can ask him anything, and he's there to help and give a few good tips.

BREW HUNTER MasterClass: "PROTOCOL: THE MINDSET OF MASTERY" 'Protocol' is the very first thing that binds a Dominant Master and his submissive.

At this Masterclass, Brew explains and expands on this fascination, bringing his Mastery experience to share and show how the very concept of rules and regulations brings deep enjoyment, satisfaction and gratification in countless Fetish and hardcore sexual connections.
