Who is Midori? What's a fetish diva?
The name Midori is well-known in the worlds of SM and fetish, first as a model, then domina, and finally the highly respected author/educator/artist she is today. She wrote a book called "The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage" which may very well have been the first book on Japanese bondage in English.
She writes erotic fiction for books and magazines, and her instructional texts have even found their way into college textbooks. She teaches around the world at universities, stores, private tutorials, and SM educational organizations. She's appeared on TV on HBO's Real Sex, Playboy TV, and many more. She's appeared in magazines that include Skin Two (UK), Marquis (Germany), Mademoiselle (US), Playboy (US and abroad), Taboo (US), Glamour, and other publications.
Midori will have copies of her book "The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage" and her CD “Aural Seductions” available for signing as well.
