Scott Smith

Scott Smith grew up in the Northwest and began exploring the facets of S&M at an early age. With his creative and rather deviant mind, he enthusiastically developed his techniques of bondage and suspension from his experience with nautical and high angle rope work. The powerful physical interactions that became the hallmark of his S&M activities were initially necessities for various activities including white water rafting, scuba, climbing, and paramedical rescue. Scott brings a distinct intensity and passion to the ebb and flow of learning, teaching and actualizing S&M. A believer that the magic of BDSM comes through the connection of the participants, his workshops develop and nurture that connection; while maintaining a decidedly sadistic edginess. Starting in the early 90’s, Scott has presented countless workshops and seminars throughout North America and abroad for organizations large and small. Scott is internationally known for his rope work, connection, and edge play workshops. Having received a number of awards, Scott is incredibly honored to be a recipient of the Chicago Hellfire Club’s Caligula award.

Scott Smith’s Classes

Interrogation

The not so gentle art of persuasion and discussion. Sleep deprivation, bright lights, screaming, crying, objectification, vulnerability, consensual non-consent, and diligence of spirit; how to set the stage to have the bottom singing. Tricks, techniques, and useful garden utensils will all be covered in this workshop on interrogation scenes lasting from half an hour to several days. Other aspects that will be discussed include: role-playing and interrogation, how to make the scene as real as is possible, special thoughts on long scenes and questions that you bring. This class is intended to bring a bit of reality to the subject, and explore the limits of both bottom and onlookers.

Note: there will be a myriad of triggers, depending on the attendee.

Predicament Bondage

Human origami, complete with folding, spindling and drooling. Tactical use of rope, pulleys, mind-games, chopsticks, things that go bump in the night, crawly creatures, seaweed, and maybe a bit of superglue. Whatever it takes to make the predicament go from bad to worse. If you are looking for sensual, this isn’t it! If you are looking for creative rope combinations for fun, fear, and frolicking, this is most certainly “it”. This workshop is rated “Hide face and cry” by Bottoms globally.

Note: there will be a myriad of triggers, depending on the attendee.

Suturing

They are small, they are pointy, and they get into really tight spots. Covering aesthetic, practical, and structural attachments with Needles & Sutures, this workshop is sure to get under your skin. Or, maybe the skin of your bottom… If you absolutely, positively, don’t want them to get away, or you have the escape artist from hell, this workshop is invaluable. Scott applies his medical background in this free-flowing workshop covering safety, equipment selection, cleaning, usage, sadism, and a wee bit of humor. This may create some localized discomfort.

Note: there will be a myriad of triggers, depending on the attendee.

Basic safety knowledge on sharps.

Waterboarding

For those bottoms who still give you the, “is that all you’ve got look”, this should take care of them. It will make them wet, it will likely make you wet, and if they decide to heave, you’ll know what they had for dinner. This is about as subtle as a freight train, or Scott Smith, as they are rather comparable. This is a guaranteed way to make the hardened bottom a little more pliable, and soggy. Straight from Gitmo, complete with begging, screaming, and crying, it’s waterboarding.

And, in case you think Smith has gone over the edge, you just have to remember, Trump says it’s Ok.

Note: there will be a myriad of triggers, depending on the attendee. Scott says: “There’s nothing that can prepare them for this.”
