Look Ma! No Hands!

The first things you should learn how to use in a scene, before buying or using toys, are parts of your body, like your arms, feet, legs and hands. This not only saves money, but it insures that you'll always be prepared to play, as you'll always have these body parts with you. We'll discuss the different things you can do, and illustrate techniques with a "hands-on" demonstration. Class participation is encouraged.
