Different Ways of “Connecting” with Rope

The term “Connective” rope has been used in various contexts, but often refers to a specific style. At its core, though, rope bondage is an experience involving two or more people. The experience is not always sensual.
In this class, we will go over different ways that I have seen people interact when rope bondage is involved, and there will be short exercises where attendees can try out each way. This is in no way an exhaustive survey of how people do rope bondage, but it will help show the versatility of rope bondage.

Grappling for Fun and Play

Grappling and wrestling with your partner can be an extremely enjoyable experience.
In this class, we will go over basic safety, and how to first negotiate the scene. Then, we will start going through a few simple things one can do, whether partners prefer to grapple on equal terms, or if there is a power dynamic involved.
This class will have a lot of audience participation for those who desire to try things out.

Paracord: Big Fun in a Small Package

Paracord is a strong utility cord which has several very nice properties for bondage. It is also easily obtained, cheap, and easily cleaned.

Kink-Provization:
Applying Improv Theater Principles to Kink Relationships in order to Enhance Communication, Creativity, & Collaboration

Successful kink relationships require a lot of work. You need skills in communication, creativity, authenticity, expanding one’s comfort zone, judgment suspension, open-mindedness, vulnerability, and curiosity. Same is true of improv.
In this entertaining, informative and immediately applicable program we’ll go behind the curtain and into the mind of improvisers and leave with ways to be more confident individuals, better relationship partners and with new ways to explore our possibilities. The entire program is informal, interactive and involving. Participation is completely voluntary. No one will be singled out to volunteer.

Kink-prov Jam

Come join us for a lots of fun. No previous Improv experience is necessary. We’ll go through a variety of improv games using volunteers. I’ll describe a game, go over the simple instructions and then let teams of 2, 4 or more bring those games into reality. There will also will be games that folks can play in their seats without getting on stage.Think of the event as a play space that is a cross between Whose Line Is It Anyway, 50 Shades of Gray, & America’s Got Talent.
