Rope. Flesh. Control. In this workshop, Parker RopeBoi & Juniper Quinn will share some of their favorite sexy and sadomasochistic tricks for using rope to enhance a sexy scene. Rope is a versatile tool that can be used to move and manipulate a partner's body, or restrain someone in a particular position. Rope can produce a variety of sensations from gentle to rough and from sensual to torturous. Workshop will include an example demonstration of negotiation and communication for a rope scene that will address risks and safety issues.
No prior rope experience needed. All experience levels welcome!
You can attend this workshop solo or with a partner. Participation in any parts of the workshop is entirely optional and should be done only with full, ongoing consent.
Some hands-on parts of the workshop are most effective with a partner. If you attend solo, you are welcome to try to partner up with another solo participant in the workshop. You also can just observe instead of doing the hands-on activities, if you prefer.
