Authentic Interrogation for BDSM

Day: Friday
Time: 3:30 PM
Location: Apollo 1

Most people picture interrogation scenes as a bright light, a hard chair, and using yelling and torture to get a "secret" instead of a safe word. Yes, that can be fun. But if you really want to get into a sub's head--to yield a specific secret, a risky truth, or a signed confession--the effective process is actually much different.Tapping his degree in Communication (with an emphasis on POW interrogation), Danarama discusses and demonstrates a wide array of concepts and proven-effective questioning techniques--gathered from the AMF 34-52 (US Army), the Kubark (CIA), the Reid Technique (police) and the Stasi (former East German) interrogation manuals and personal accounts of POW and criminal interrogations. He offers ideas on how you can leverage these principles to prepare and execute your own BDSM-based interrogation scenes to create realistic (and often real) effects, and arm you with ways to get your sub to talk.
