When I first encountered BDSM, I didn’t quite know what to make of it. I’ve learned that it’s the ultimate form of improv. It creates scenes that force you to look deep within yourself to find truths and characters that your conscious mind buried. This intensive provide tools for seeing, freeing, and managing those characters.




Cleo meant it when she calls her workshop Intensive. It was quite an overwhelming experience that kept my mind busy for days after it was over. If you want to learn more than just ‘technical’ skills this class is for you.


Participating in the Erotic Dominance workshop for men was certainly one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time. The combined energy of my fellow participants and that of you and your staff and volunteers was incredible. I found the way you combined aspects of tantra and spirituality with the various techniques of BDSM practice empowering. How I approach my play and my partner has moved to a new level. Thank you for opening the door and showing me how to move through, slowly and with heart.


Cleo and her staff complemented each other seamlessly. The unique learning opportunities provided by this workshop are worth significantly more than the money it costs. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to bring his SM play to a new level.


I had always identified as ‘kinky’, but couldn’t get past simply ‘playing a role’ when it came to DS. While I had always considered kink to be part of me, I had not considered it to be part of my spirit. Those two came together for me as one at your Men’s Intensive. I had a few years as a bottom, recent development as a Top, was somewhat knowledgeable and skilled in SM practices, and was known in the community, but admittedly had little understanding of DS as it related to me. What changed my life was attending The Men’s Intensive weekend.


I loved this class. I wanted to go back on Monday and keep going! It allowed me to take another step into my power using tools I wouldn’t have used on my own. The variety of topics allowed focus on different play methods while maintaining the overall theme of dominance and relationship. I loved the feedback and chances to explore without pressure. I experienced a lot of passion and heart, directed at providing us what we needed.


I have Dominated mostly from a place of the ‘Master/trainer’ because that is what I thought I should be. However through your influence I now started to accept that my truest archetype is the ‘Predator/animal’. It has been a truly liberating experience. I feel a new freedom to express myself sexually, where previously I somewhat resisted that, because of negative images about it. My partner is ecstatic about my new found clarity in my identity and our sexual play has been charged with a new electricity and passion.


I want to thank you for the wisdom you shared with us during the intensive. I was seeking a clearer understanding of the psychological aspects of D/s, and a deeper spiritual connection to BDSM. I found both in great measure, and I am very grateful. My relationship… is improving rapidly as a result of what I learned. I hope to take further courses from you in the future.
