Wax on, Wax off!
Contessa Alura gave a wonderful workshop on Wax Play today. She had a live demonstration of wax play techniques, interspersed with fascinating insights, tips and Contessa Alura’s sense of fun! Her lucky demonstration person experienced wax play for the first time, and certainly seemed delighted with it.
I was particularly impressed with how much we learned about the psychology of wax play from the point of view of both the top and the bottom. I really felt we were getting the kind of knowledge which only a few are privy to. You’ve got to admit that wax play is pretty cool. We saw a range of interactions: from sensual, to domination types of wax play.
While mindful of the safety and feelings of her demo person, Contessa Alura explained the entire process to the attendees. One thing that really strikes me about wax play, is that there is a real artistic aspect to it. Contessa used her subject to create wax designs with candle drippings. She also explained how the heat of the wax is used to create various sensations and feelings. In wax play, the canvas truly is the human body and mind.
