AKA Fear workshop
Wanna learn some of the most deranged ways to fuck with someone?s head? Come spend a few hours with Master Olivier and his pup, and have a little taste of the pleasures of sadistic hell.

In this class along with learning the basics of what psychological torture really is, we'll take it up a notch and include sensory deprivation. Fear can be a palatable and powerful ally in your scenes, play spaces, dungeons and bedrooms. To properly use the "Toy of Torture" the user needs to have the basic tools necessary to help their submissives explore the many levels that come with this seductive and often controversial play. Are there limits with this play, can you go too far? Come explore with us, the sublime to obscene, the overwhelming to silent. Not for the faint of heart, or sensitive of soul. Master Olivier has degrees are in Psychology and Philosophy, and is an ordained. RC Deacon. Pup Sparky has a degree in Psychology.

AKA Whipping workshop
Come and join us for a whip class with a different spin. There are very talented single tail users attending and teaching technique this weekend, but this class is a bit different. This class is about building your whip dynamic with a bottom. How to escalate styles of play with whips. How to begin moving with whips, playing in different planes - vertical - horizontal - yoga positions? This is about learning to share in the experience, and the bottom contributes just as much as the top does to this sense of fun and wildness. A sensuous entanglement of top, bottom and whip with a very fluid style. This class includes technique for tops and bottoms and will build on other whip classes and practice sessions from the weekend.

Beginning whip users are welcome in this class, we only ask that you practice at your own speed. Advanced users are certainly welcome to come and share some of the more unique ways that you're playing with whips.

Returning for his second year at Amsterdam Kink Academy, BootBlack Pup Itus is excited to bring his passion back to another workshop. We will be taking the skills even further this year, but first we will be going to be going through a quick history of where bootblacking came from, how it evolved and how it became part of the leather community as a foundation for history. We will than discuss leather and boot care, at this point we will get our hands in some polish and understand the anatomy and basic care of our leather, helping us prolong the life and look of our Leather. Then on to some fun, we will be exploring the sexual side of bootblacking, from boot worship, stomping, and power exchange to leather and body worship. Learning to connect leather care and hot leather sex. This year everyone will be taking home a bootblack starter kit to help continue ones desire to learn and keep ones boots prepared for whatever comes around.
