Specially curated by Midori for the individuals in attendance, this course will challenge you and stretch your ability to live in joy and ethical empowerment.  

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 SF Bay Area ForteFemme is held in a elegant Spanish style state in the Oakland Hills, with all the comforts of home and gorgeous views of the Bay. The New York ForteFemme will be held in an elegant private loft in Manhattan.

SATURDAY NIGHT:  EROTIC DINNER (Optional)

You will be invited to join us for an elegant, private dinner with the fabulously infamous San Francisco underground restaurant, Our Gourmet Life.  Immerse yourself in an elaborate feast of the senses and explore an entirely new realm of sensuality at this enigmatic formal affair.

(Cost is not included with registration.)

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 able to bring your own Lab partner, 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.
