The Art of Online Stripping (1.5 hour)
I want you to imagine that you are sitting on a chair, bound – probably with my own rope. On the bed, you see the silhouette of a woman. She pulls away at her nylons and black lace lingerie. She undulates. Back and forth. Around and around. She reveals but does not show herself completely. She can be anyone you want her to be. You struggle in your predicament as you taste her scent in the air. The lights illuminate her glasses and you see her looking directly into your eyes. You tear up a little, knowing that you can never touch her. She turns the lights off, and you are alone with her, bound in her rope and in her darkness.
Live entertainment, especially nightlife, like the hot little messy excerpt above, will never be the same again. Yet in these dark times, we find ourselves craving for and at the same time terrified of human intimacy and sexuality. Sex and sensuality are human rights and needs, but what does the future of these things look like amidst the ongoing crisis?
In the Art of Online Stripping, adult and softporn entertainer JOYEN will discuss Her experiences in migrating x-rated art and performance online. Learn about the basic considerations, safety protocols, and common misconceptions behind offering striptease services online in this lecture-based class. Upgrade your skillset or master tips and tricks both on and off-camera to look like a pro, whether for a global audience or that one special pervert. Lastly, you may even have the chance to watch an exclusive striptease from JOYEN herself, if you’re lucky.
