For local (Florida) events we often present for free, especially if you give us a chance for a short Woodshed commercial!
Outside of Florida, we ask that expenses be covered in getting us to your event.
Not sure you can cover all the expenses? Send me an email and let's see what we can work out!
1-2 hour class; needs a demo bottom of average size and a space about 10x10 for a massage table
Massage can be a wonderful form of service to a dominant, a delightful reward for a submissive, or even just something you enjoy doing for others. In this class Darcy will demonstrate the basics of massage, focusing on Swedish relaxation techniques and some of the best areas to massage from head to toe. She will also touch on some other common forms of massage and the different techniques they use.
1-2 hour class; can go longer depending how much hands-on is wanted
This class is designed for those who have never done bootblacking before or are just getting started. You’ll learn about the different types of leather you might encounter and how to handle them, and you will leave this class with a basic knowledge of how to clean, condition, and polish, as well as the variety of products available for those tasks.
We will also talk about the different reasons people get into bootblacking, and touch on how to turn a practical task into an erotic scene as well!
Dom... Sub… But then what?
1 hour class; preferably presented with Master Cecil
You've figured out that you're a dominant. Or you've figured out that you're a submissive. Maybe you've realized you like both and you're a switch. Congratulations!
But that's not the end of it.
What does being a dominant or a submissive mean to you? What do you want your D/s relationship(s) to look like?
Master Cecil and Darcy will offer some thoughts on different styles of relationships, the needs of different types of dominants and submissives, and how to get those needs met in the real world.
Making the Connection
60 minutes; presented with Master Cecil
One of the greatest aspects of relationships is the potential for connection. Virtually anything we do can be an opportunity to connect, and kink offers even more opportunities than the vanillas get. We’ll talk about how to make that connection with someone special to you, whether it’s a BDSM scene, a high protocol situation, or even vanilla-looking snuggles.
Facets of Service
60-90 minutes; presented with Master Cecil
We’ll talk about the multitude of ways in which a submissive can provide service, from the purely practical to the purely pleasing. We’ll also discuss ways a dominant can encourage service, how to graciously receive it, and some of the etiquette involved when serving in a D/s setting. It’s time to delve beyond house cleaning and blow jobs (not that there’s anything wrong with that)!
Needs & Wants
45-60 minutes; presented with Master Cecil
What do you want in a relationship? What do you truly need? What about in life? A Needs & Wants List is one of the most valuable tools you can have in your toolbox for bringing fulfillment to any relationship, but where do you start? What does one look like?
We’ll talk about the basics, some of the most important things to have on your list, and some things you may never have thought to include. We’ll also talk about revisiting your lists and how they change.
60-90 minutes; presented with Master Cecil
Communication is key in any D/s relationship, but there’s more to it than just saying words or imparting information. We’ll talk about some common pitfalls in communication and some tips to help make sure the communication you want is really happening.
The Big IT
2-3 hour class; presented with Master Cecil
This class encompasses material from several of our others including “Dom.. Sub.. Then What?”, “Needs and Wants”, and “Say What?”
Have you ever looked at a couple walking by, in a scene, or just out to dinner together and said “WOW they really get IT”? Conversely, have you ever looked at another couple walking by and said “They just don’t have a clue”? This class is given by Master Cecil and his beloved Darcy with the goal of defining for you what that “IT” you see in some couples actually is and how to acquire “IT” for your current or future relationships. You do not have to be in a relationship to attend this class. If you are not in a relationship or your partner doesn’t want to attend with you, bring paper as you will want to take copious notes for later discussion! Come and learn how to take any relationship to the next level and be the couple that everyone says “They really get IT” about.
I'm always interested in formulating some more classes,
so if you've got a hole that you think I might be able to fill
(not like that!),
feel free to float the idea my way.
You never know what we might come up with.
Darcy has been active in the public lifestyle since 2005 when she went to her first Orlando Munch. A year later she and two fellow newbies created the Newbie Roundtable group associated with the same munch, through which she met her dominant, Master Cecil. Together they have owned The Woodshed Orlando since 2008.
She still supports the Orlando Munch and is the event and education coordinator for The Woodshed, a bootblack, and a member and officer of Safe Words Toastmasters. She has presented on topics as varied as bootblacking, relationships, and massage at events from Florida Power Exchange, to Spanksgiving in St. Louis and COPE in Columbus, Ohio.
She describes herself as Master Cecil’s submissive, partner, and general “bitch what gets shit done.” Master Cecil describes her as “the brains behind the operation.”
