Grabbing someone, pushing them up against a wall, down to the floor or onto a bed, and otherwise manhandling them can be an exciting and erotic aspect of bdsm play. Rope can be useful tool for such asymmetrical rough body play, and can put the bottom at a clear physical disadvantage. This hands-on rope class teaches techniques for tying a person into a state of mobile immobilization—somewhat immobilized, yet still mobile enough to be moved around a room or rolled into different fun positions. Participants also will learn how to create handles and attachment points on otherwise slippery bodies. Participants will also view demonstrations of techniques for manhandling a tied-up bottom into different positions. These techniques are especially useful for situations in which the rope top (tying partner) is physically smaller than the rope bottom )person being tied), though everyone can benefit from the techniques taught in this class.
 
After a 2 hour workshop, the remaining time is available for practice or socializing while enjoying refreshments and desserts.

All sexes, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations welcome and celebrated.

Cost at the door: $80.
No late entry will be allowed due to the safety information at the beginning of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time.

Dessert and refreshments are included.
Attendance is limited to 18 Duos.

About the Educator:

Parker RopeBoi (fetlife.com/users/55044) is queer, genderqueer rope instructor and performer, who has an international reputation for innovative self-suspensions, highly dynamic suspensions, and quirky sadistic predicaments. Since 2009, Parker has been presenting rope workshops, intensives, and performances across North America and Europe. For Parker, rope is a versatile medium for enabling and disabling corporeal possibilities, encountering and overcoming impasses, instigating intense sensations and pleasures, and suspending bodies in space. Parker respects that everyone is different and that there are no one-size-fits-all ties. Parker strives to foster an inclusive, affirming environment for adults of all bodies, histories, and identifications to learn and enjoy rope. Parker lives in Brooklyn, New York City.
