While many companies floundered in lockdown, Sarah Butcher’s was buzzing – actually.

The 30-year-old from Bournemouth is a self-proclaimed “kink educator” who helps 1000’s of individuals all over the world dwell out their sexual fantasies.

Sarah, who posts underneath the area @subinthecity, stop her job in advertising as demand grew for her kinky workshops in lockdown.

One of Sarah’s hottest workshops is BDSM 101 – an introduction to kink – and her spanking class. 

Up to 100 folks a time will be part of these workshops on-line and as much as 50 will take part in real-life classes. 

Sarah – who bought into BDSM (which stands for bondage, self-discipline, sadism, masochism) over 10 years in the past – makes use of her personal experiences within the kink world to teach her shoppers. 

She tells The Sun: “When I first began exploring kink there wasn’t a lot on the market. The web was a darkish and scary place. I made my very own errors and realized via trial and error. “

Sarah says there are loads of misconceptions surrounding BDSM. 

Fifty Shades of Grey brought BDSM to the mainstream but it was a double-edged sword,” she explains.

“On one hand it was sensible for girls because it gave us the boldness to speak about our wishes, however alternatively there have been loads of misconceptions which got here out of the books and the films, and Anastasia and Christian’s relationship is problematic. “

“People wrongly think that you have to like pain or be a sadist or a masochist if you’re into BDSM. Yes, that is a big part of it, but there are so many other elements to it.”

“Another big misconception is that doms are super-rich males and subs are timid women. It’s not always women who are subs and it’s not always men who are doms.”

“People always presume I’m a dom because I’m a strong, independent woman in my day job but for me being a sub is about letting go.”

Sarah, who’s in a relationship, says folks shouldn’t put themselves in a “box” in terms of kink. 

“My shoppers ask, ‘Am I allowed to be interested in bondage and tantra?’

“I tell them you can be into BDSM and not pain and like tantra and rough sex. It’s totally normal.”

“It’s not all about flogging’”

Sarah was just lately speaking at a kink occasion with Married at First Sight’s sexpert Charlene Douglas and tells how ladies have been shocked at how pleasurable BDSM will be – and the shocking gadgets that may boost their bed room antics. 

“It’s not all about flogging, spanking and tying each other up,” she explains. “It can be a very sensual experience.”

“My clients assume hot wax is scary and painful and are so surprised at how amazing it feels in my workshops. It can be really erotic pouring it over your partner’s naked body, like a work of art.”

“But don’t use candles round the home as bondage candles burn at a decrease temperature. Always purchase therapeutic massage candles from grownup shops like Bondara, Ann Summers or LoveHoney. 

“Or let your partner control your orgasm by using different toys and get them to slow down when you’re on the edge of climaxing and then start it all again.”

“Sensory deprivation is another great way to experiment with kink.”

“If you’re into more sensual play, use a silky blindfold not a hard PVC one and practice power play using feather ticklers.”

“There really is something for everyone so don’t be afraid to try.”

She explains: “A lot of my clients are worried that their kink is wrong. They’ll ask me, ‘Is it weird of me to think this?’”

“Women will say, ‘I must be such a bad feminist to want to be treated in this way.’”

“But I tell them it’s the opposite! They’re brilliant feminists because they’re exploring their sexuality and taking control of their desires.”

“There’s a lot of secrecy and shame around people’s fantasies but as long as there’s mutual consent between partners it’s fine.”

“My workshops are very interactive,” she continues. “People can practice with each other and have a laugh as they try out the different toys. Online is more about theory.”

“My business boomed in lockdown. The pandemic gave people time to think about what they want in bed and explore their desires in the comfort of their home.”
