Pussy Play Masterclass

Learning. I'm loving it this Fringe. There's a full four pages of 'interactive' shows in the guide this year, and so many more with an educational bent to them. Pussy Play Masterclass is one of those shows.

Two ginger cousins from rural Australia are building a sexy empire, with Strawberry Siren a lauded and awarded burlesque star, and Rural Ranga an artist and curator with a stint as a 'happy ending' masseuse in New York. Building on the success of Rural Ranga's Wank Bank Masterclass last year, the pair are touring their masturbation masterclasses around the world.

And the crowds are hungry for it. There was a packed house late on Sunday, with a mix of men and women in the audience. (Boys, don't be shy! Go learn how it's done!) So get in quick before these sessions become a cult sensation.

But hold your horses. Before getting anywhere near sexy time, Siren needs to clear things up a bit.

She first takes us through the fundamentals of fucking - Consent, Understanding, Nurturing, and Timing. Very important. Then it's time for an anatomy lesson. As we learnt on OITNB last year, not everyone knows how a vulva is made up (not even some women). Oh yeah, and it's a vulva, not a vagina.

Then it's time to get our hands dirty. We open our goody bags to find an instruction manual and some playdough. Stepped through the process by Siren, our playdough pussies are moulded and finished off with a fresh pea. We proudly display them for inspection, with the best winning 'Pussy of the Day' and squirter duties.

Siren encourages the crowd to get down and dirty with our vulvas. Each move is expertly matched to a track that'll get you in the mood.

Siren doesn't take herself too seriously, and particularly enjoys a bit of banter with the young boys goofing off in the front row. She has a saucy school teacher vibe going on, which she could play up a bit more to take the showmanship up a couple of notches.

Although the show isn't quite as polished as the pea in your playdough, it's a lot of fun. You're guaranteed to learn a new trick or two - even if you've been fondling vulvas for decades. And it's conveniently scheduled at the end of the night so you can race home and put your new knowledge to the test.

Pussy Play is a gift that keeps on giving. I have it on good authority that "Peace, Love and Rock and Roll", and the secret partner play bonus move, work a charm.

Best date night idea ever. You’re welcome.
