Bondage can be mean, but let’s make it meaner! We’ll take a little time looking at some common ties and new approaches to making them meaner, both in approach, attitude, and techniques. Beyond the tie, let’s remember that there are lots of things to do with rope – lots of awful, mean, wonderful things – that have nothing to do with bondage, and we’ll explore some of them. Floggers, whips, cudgels, gags, and a quick run-through of the patented (not really) Roughinamorato Ropefist.
Bring your rope. If you already know how to tie a TK that’s great, but if you don’t know what a TK is that’s fine too – you’ll still learn some good (terrible) stuff.
Attendees should bring rope if they would like to practice or follow along.
All sexes, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations welcome and celebrated.

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.
This workshop is a donation from Roughinamorato to support the new building for the Center and Foundation for Sex Positive Culture.
