Demo BOTTOM-Submissive Description & Requirements

We use a demo submissive for our Delicious Deprivation workshop. Being our demo bottom-submissive is challenging and intense. If that sounds exciting, read on!

What will this experience be like for the Demo Submissive?

Intense! All of the workshop participants will watch you experience varying levels of sensory deprivation, from light to deep. The method of the workshop has participants watching an experience being demonstrated, hearing HeartBound and I talk about the experience, then engaging in guided discussion about it, which will include questions to you about your part of the experience. They will also be blindfolding and gagging themselves for hands-on experience.

HeartBound and I will both be involved with demonstrations with you in the workshop. We’ll be starting the workshop with you on display, with your hands and arms in bondage and you wearing a blindfold, gag, and ear plugs. Through the course of the workshop we’ll be using you to demonstrate each of those items separately, often with several variations (i.e. bit gag, ball gag, Jennings gag, etc.) As we move through the workshop, we’ll combine devices, and show how sensory deprivation can be combined with other forms of BDSM play.


We may ask you to kneel, wear a collar, crawl, accept a spanking and/or impact experience, and engage in a variety of other kinky behaviors.


Participants will not physically engage in demonstrations with you.


It’s likely that we’ll direct you to remove some of your outer clothing at some point in the experience. Some level of nudity is an option, depending on your pre-agreed and in-the-moment comfort level. There will be no genital contact. Both HeartBound and I will be fully dressed at all times.

It’s important that you be…

• a confirmed submissive comfortable with collars, leash and lead, hair-pulling, foot worship, rapid physical movement, light to medium S/M, and close physical contact.

• comfortable with being dominated by both men and women (or at least us!).

• comfortable and confident in a partial state of undress in front of a class.

• absolutely available for the scheduled workshop time.

• in integrity with your partner(s) around being a demo bottom for us.

• completely comfortable with…

… accessing your deep submissive self.

…being blindfolded.

…being gagged. We use a variety of gags in this workshop. You will be demonstrating the most challenging.

… being in arm bondage.

• completely comfortable engaging in short demonstration scenes with HeartBound and me.

• available to meet at a mutually agreed-upon time beforehand for a pre-workshop negotiation and mini-rehearsal. In this case we will invite you to dinner with us (our treat, of course) a couple of hours prior to the workshop.

• able to communicate comfortably and in the moment using standard safe words of yellow and red.

• able to articulate your experience in front of a class when called upon to do so.

• in generally good health.

• if you’re a smoker, able to abstain for several hours prior to the workshop.

• at complete ease about doing this. Nobody but you should be making the choice to demo for us.


If you meet all of the qualifications above and are interested in being our demo submissive, we look forward to hearing from you! Fill on the contact form on the bottom of the main page to let us know that you're interested.


We'll be happy to answer your questions. We also use FaceTime, Skype, and Zoom for video conferencing. We will want to have a video conversation with you soon, well before the workshop.

We adhere to the Demo Bottom’s Bill of Rights that were developed by Sarah Sloane and Tristan Taormino.
