SF/ONLINE: Setting the Scene with Auntie Vice

  • Hosted by Wicked Grounds
  • San Francisco, CA -

BDSM scenes benefit from planning and understanding the senses. This class does a deep dive into the five major sense and three less-discussed ones (proximity, time, balance) and sensory deprivation. Participants learn how to engage different sensations to create a scene which reached the outcome participants desire. Participants recieve tools and worksheets to help them create the scenes of their dreams in the class.


Auntie Vice is a life-long kinkster. They write and teach from the submissive perspective. They have a Ph.D. in Political Psychology and a BA in Psychology. Much of their work involves understanding the psychological underpinnings on power dynamics, BDSM, gender, and disability. They run the award-winning sex blog and the podcast Fat Chicks on Top. Their book, The Big Workbook for Submissives, was a 2018 finalist for the Golden Flogger Award.
