Fetish or For Real? – Intersectional Kinking ~Educator: WhiskyTangoFoxy
Gallery Erato: $30. Advance: $22 (Solo) $30 (Solo & Pay It Forward Donor)

Ever wondered if someone is into you, or if you are just a fetish delivery system for a specific Race/Gender Expressions/Age or Body Type? When there is a chance of being type-cast, pigeon-holed or ‘boxed’ into a stereotype instead of recognized and valued as an individual there are several challenges. This is a conversation for kinksters in marginalized groups to discuss what they face when seeking play or relationships.

Parker RopeBoi in Seattle August 15-18!

We are welcoming back Parker RopeBoi for three rope bondage focused workshops. Friday’s Date Night Event features a rope and rough body play workshop that will flow into practice time. Parker will also be available for private lessons.

Parker RopeBoi 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.

Thursday, August 16 — 7:00pm
Boot Play, Trampling, & Rope ~Educator: Parker Ropeboi
Gallery Erato: $35. Advance: $25 (Solo) $45 (Duo) $35 ( Solo & Pay It Forward Donor) $55 (Duo & Pay It Forward Donor)

Boots. Rope. Flesh. Are you someone who likes some boot marks among your rope marks? In this class, Parker RopeBoi will share some of their favorite sexy and sadistic tricks and tips for manipulating bodies using boots and rope for pleasure and pain. The class will demonstrate and discuss gauging and applying different kinds and amounts of pressure with boots to different body parts, which body parts can handle more or less boot pressure, and how different floor ties and partial/full suspension ties affect the intensity of boot pressure and require different kinds of trampling techniques. Demos aim to inspire you to bring your own style and ideas for integrating boots and rope in a scene. Participants will have time to try out some of these techniques and to explore playing with boots and rope in their own style.

 

Friday, August 17 — 8:00pm
Rope For Roughhousing: A Date Night Event with educator Parker Ropeboi.
Gallery Erato: $80. Advance: $65 (Duo) $80 (Duo & Pay It Forward Donor)

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.

 

Saturday, August 18th — 11:00am
Twisted Transitions ~Educator: Parker Ropeboi
Gallery Erato: $90 (Duo). Advance: $75 (Duo) $90 (Duo & Pay It Forward Donor)

Torsion suspensions (suspensions in twisted body positions) offer exciting ways to expand your range of spatial-aesthetic options and sensory experiences in the air. Twisting your suspensions can create intense experiences and change up your suspension repertoire. In this workshop, we will address the physical components and body mechanics of torsion (torso twisting) in suspension. We will cover a variety of torsion suspension transitions, including particular suspension techniques and line management techniques for transitioning into and out of torsion positions. These topics are addressed from both bottoms’ and tops’ perspectives, with emphasis on choosing and adjusting transitions to work best for individual bodies.
