Introduction to Cigars: Cigars for the Cigar-Curious

September 15, 2017 @ 7:00 pm – 7:45 pm America/Los Angeles Timezone
Advance tickets only: $15

Are you interested in cigars but are intimidated by the idea of going to a cigar event? Cigar-curious? Just worried you’ll smoke it wrong, will feel awkward, will light the wrong end, that the cigar will make you feel ill? Do you think cigars might be for your but you’re just not sure? Is a little experience all that’s keeping you from trying out a cigar social? If you said yes to any of those things, then this class is here just for you. This class will cover the basics of your own cigar handling – how to cut and light a cigar, how to feel at ease holding it, and how you take care of a lit cigar. We’ll talk about how to smoke it (and how not to), and what to look for and enjoy from your cigar. This will be hands-on, and the $15 cost includes a cigar for you to try out in class. This class will be very informal, and is a great opportunity for anyone who’s interested to give cigars a try. If you choose to stay for the Cigar Play class that starts at 8pm, you can apply this class fee to your workshop entry.

This workshop is a donation from Roughinamorato to support the new building for the Foundation for Sex Positive Culture. All proceeds will go to the FSPC’s new home fund.

About the Educator:

Roughinamorato is a charmingly sadistic bastard who believes that kink should be fun; just because you’re torturing someone doesn’t mean you can’t both have a good laugh between the screams. He’s been teaching in the BDSM scene since 2006. His journey of self-discovery into kink and BDSM has led him to want to share that joy and pain with others, through classes about rough body play, rope, connection, and sexual expression. He has become an internationally renowned presenter and has taught at events across the world including Dark Odyssey, Shibaricon, The Gathering, Thunder in the Mountains, Frolicon, The Floating World, Winter Wickedness, WestCoast Bound, Rope Camp, the Fetish Flea, and many more. He runs Rough Crowd, a monthly rough body play workshop in Chicago, and Rough Crowd Academy, a rough body play intensive weekend that has made appearances in cities from San Francisco to Boston, Toronto to Sydney. He also runs Rough Crowd Cigars, a monthly-ish smoker. You can find him on FetLife at, on Twitter @roughinamorato, or on the web at and
