Known as the “supernova of kink” according to Dan Savage, Midori emerged from the Sex Positive movement in San Francisco in the early 1990s and soon became one of the most highly regarded presenters on sexuality, personal fulfillment, and kink.
Midori graduated with a BA in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley, and completed the San Francisco Sex Information SARS Program and SFSI Sexuality Educator Training. Her reputation as an authority and leading expert on alternative pleasures stem not only from her unique and entertaining process of teaching concrete skills, but in her ability to deconstruct and distill complex matters of desire into surprisingly accessible lessons with eloquence and humanity.
Highly respected for her ability to teach with equal parts expertise and heart, her intensives and pop-up classes are often booked months in advance. She is best known for her transformative small-group educational intensives, Rope Dojo and ForteFemme: Women’s Dominance Weekend Intensive.
She is the author of The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage, Wild Side Sex, and Master Han’s Daughter. She has also contributed her expertise and voice in numerous articles, columns, works of fiction, and instructional books, including Men’s Health UK, Spectator Magazine, Carnal Nation, and Taboo Magazine, to name a few. In 2017, she presented a TEDx talk called, Embrace Change & Creation…The Artist as the Embodied Canvas, where Midori shared her unique art practice and invited the audience to create upon her own body.
When she’s not traveling and teaching, she’s creating provocative and haunting art and performances. For more information about Midori, visit her official website at https://www.fhp-inc.com. Follow her on Twitter and Instagram at @PlanetMidori.
