Ann Summers Bondage Masterclass


Ann Summers, how much do I love this brand? Let me count the ways.  Firstly, they hold a no-shame judgement-free policy to anything sex related, which suits me down to the ground. Secondly, their lingerie is the ideal mix between quality and fun.
Thirdly, the team behind the brand are so damn great they've become my real-life pals. So much so I am dragging them all out with me to my fav West End haunt, The Welly. Anyway, I digress.  Fourth reason I love them so, is that their events are AWESOME.

One such event was on 19th February; a Bondage Masterclass held at their two floor Oxford Street store. For those bondage beginners or the likes of me who just want more information, Ann Summers put on a class and I was invited to the press preview. The actual class was conducted by Alix Fox - a 'sexpert' (she'll hate that I wrote that!), a presenter a journalist and a speaker for Durex too.  Basically, she does everything. I can see why.  As soon as I met her, I loved her.  Radiating such warmth and humour, Alix knows exactly how to conduct herself and the subject matter in hand with an informative, eloquent and humourous manner.  Being in the same industry I completely admire Alix as I know just how hard it is to deliver such a seminar - I mean, even sexperts sometimes get a bit coy over sex toys.  Scrap that...neither Alix or I are ever coy!

So the class itself lasted around an hour and a half in total, but we were there from 6pm onwards enjoying the cocktails, champagne and canapes. I may have enjoyed a little too much champagne.  I know, so unlike me?  I blame the waiters for this hiccup - the Adonis Cabaret hunks were hired to top up our glasses and I could never say no to a topless guy. Especially one holding alcohol. You get me? 

What I loved the most about this event, however, was how comfortable and 'free' both myself and my plus one felt. Most seminars you almost feel ordered to be quiet, to sit and listen.  We were encouraged to laugh, to giggle, to join in with Alix - at one point she had my plus one on her back, on the floor.  Yep, that happened. But I felt I could interact, I could ask questions, I could move around and grab another glass of bubbly too.  The atmosphere was amazing.  Alix knew what to say, when to say it and how to deliver it to keep everyone's attention.  Plus, it was damn interesting too - even I learnt something new. Looking forward to seeing Alix Fox again soon! P.s Alix...I still want your skirt. 

Here are some more snaps from the eve:
