Building on the concepts taught in Midori's two-hour class,"The Art of Feminine Dominance," this weekend intensive allows you to go beyond and to have Midori work with you in a much more personal and hands-on fashion than her classes normally allow. From Friday night to Sunday afternoon, you will be immersed in a safe, private and supportive environment exploring what it means to find and enjoy your power as a dominant femme. Midori's uniquely-designed curriculum takes a "Head-Heart-Hands" approach that integrates the eroticism of your mind and body, as well as of your partner, instead of trying to teach you one-size-fits-all scripts or focusing on technique.

  •      FRIDAY // Liberate Your Identity
  •      SATURDAY // Listen Intuitively
  •      SUNDAY // Savor the Moment
Our venues are always selected to maximize students' comfort and confidentiality. The San Francisco ForteFemme will be held in a elegant private loft in the South of Market (SoMa) area. The New York ForteFemme will be held in an elegant private loft in the Murray Hill/Midtown South area. Discreet, comfortable and accessible. It's near many hotels and lovely restaurants.

All catering will be handled by ForteFemme staff, with vegetarian options available upon request.

All workshops include:
  • Original text book
  • Continental breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Afternoon snacks and refreshments
  • Sexy goodies donated by our sponsors, The Pleasure Chest and J.T.’s Stockroom.
  • An optional guided field trip to some of Midori’s favorite stores and play spaces in the city, including dinner with Midori and your fellow students. (Each student is responsible for her own shopping and dinner expenses.)
As a renowned educator in sexuality, alternative erotic expression and self development, Midori is uniquely qualified to lead this weekend intensive and to empower you to find your inner femme. Spend some time with Midori investing in yourself and your relationship.

SATURDAY NIGHT: OPTIONAL FIELD TRIP to PURPLE PASSION & DINNER

Let's explore Manhattan's kinky side together! Midori will be your tour guide for this little adventure. You are welcome to have one guest join you. The evening begins with a shopping trip to Purple Passion for a giant show-&-tell toy box for continued education and mini instructions. Refreshments, prizes and other goodies await along with shopping discounts. Then we go around the corner for dinner to one of Midori's favorite eateries.

SUNDAY AFTERNOON: LAB TIME

During the ForteFemme Lab you will have the opportunity to practice the skills you've learned. Your minimum requirement during the Lab will be to lead a creatively dominant pre-play conversation and scene negotiation, using the skills gained during our lessons. This is, simply put, a conversation- nothing more, not play itself. This is a wonderful experience to share with your partner or play buddy. If you are not bringing your own Lab partner with you, please let us know so an experienced and screened Trainer can be provided.

  • You may also choose to use this time to practice foundation skills covered in class.
  • You may choose to use this time to play, and learn through playing.
  • You are not required nor expected to play, and certainly not expected or required to become intimate.
  • If feeling somewhat shy, there will be areas of privacy.
  • All limits and boundaries for everyone will always be respected.
