The Seat of Identity: Playing with the Face
A person’s relationship with their face is intimate and complicated – psychologist have long theorized that human’s have made a strong connection between their facial appearance and their identity. In addition, the face plays an important role in our relationships with others – it allows us to discern emotions, judge truthfulness, and recall memories of our past interactions. Playing with your partner’s face can be a powerful experience. During this discussion, Jim and Jerith will show you how to create an emotionally charged scene that revolves around the head and facial features.
They will cover techniques to torture and pleasure the mouth, the nose, the eyes, the cheeks, the ears, and finally a person’s hair. In addition, they will cover the basics of facial anatomy and talk about the psychological impact this type of play can have.
