Spanking 201- A Weekend with Roughinarmorato
Working On Your Swing / Full Body Spanking
Does spanking have to end at the end? Do you find you really just want to keep smacking (and smacking, and smacking)? Why not an entire BDSM session just using your hands?
In this class we'll look at where spanking and rough body play meet.
Come to this class to learn some wonderful techniques for slapping, backhanding, spanking, and other styles to broaden and vary the types of sensation available in rough body play... and some deliciously evil ways to drive those hits home beyond the moment of impact.
This is the first class of a series of 4 with Roughinamorato. Join him for Predicament Bondage on Friday, Introduction to Breath Play on Saturday in Pioneer Square, and Explore Rough Body Play on Saturday evening.
Online ticket sales have ended, but tickets are available at the door for $25.
We'll talk about safety, as always: where you can hit, and where you should stay away from, why there are places where you can hit open handed but not closed, and how to control bruising (less or more)? We'll talk about techniques, pacing, judging a bottom's head space, and some unexpected things to watch out for. We'll look at how you can keep having fun without overstimulating a bottom and ending a scene prematurely, and how you can amp it up for the sub who "can take it all." We'll also look at some techniques to vary the bottom's experience, and to help the Top's hands last longer.
About the presenter:
Roughinamorato is a charmingly sadistic bastard who firmly believes that kink should be fun; just because you're beating or torturing someone doesn't mean you can't both have a good laugh between the screams. He's been presenting and teaching in the vanilla world as a software geek for over 15 years, and active and presenting in the BDSM scene since 2006.
He runs Rough Crowd, a monthly rough body play group in Chicago, and takes that knowledge on the road with the Rough Crowd Road Trip, a rough body play intensive weekend that has made appearances in Detroit, Boston, Minneapolis, and most recently Toronto. In 2010 he created, co-organized and presented at BAM! Chicago, a rough body play intensive weekend. He's taught at nationally-renown clubs in Chicago, GD2 and the LRA, events including Shibaricon, Rope Camp, the Fetish Flea, MadTownKinkFest, Tournament, and Spankfest/Tryst, and kink groups across the Midwest from MIN-KY in Minnesota to GRALE in Grand Rapids. He enjoys most forms of rough body play, as well as humiliation, degradation, and objectification.
His journey of self-discovery into kink and BDSM - things that have really always been there, deep inside for him - has led him to want to share that joy and pain with others, through classes about BDSM, kink, and sexual expression, both physically-oriented and mentally-focused.
Roughinamorato lives in Chicago.
