Rough Crowd September: Breath Play

Rough Crowd Date: Sunday, September 15, 2013

In July of 2012 we did Breath Play, and it was our biggest-attended Rough Crowd; we did it again in March of this year and we beat our previous attendance record, and I was asked not 2 days later when we were doing it again. So we’re going to do it again, with more notice this time, and get everyone who said they were bummed they couldn’t come last time!

Sometimes when you’re doing rough body play, and someone starts getting all rowdy (or horny) you just need to choke someone out.

Breath play, like so much of rough body play, is very primal and animalistic; the need to breathe is core to life, and tapping into that fear can lead to all sorts of fun! It can be disorienting, terrifying, fuzzy-floating… for some people it brings on heightened sensation and submission. For others, it brings an incredible sense of intimacy, focus, and connection.

We’ll talk about several methods, risks and ways to mitigate them, and some techniques to help you find the way that works best on you or your partner.

Due to the nature of breath play, bringing your own play partner is highly encouraged for this workshop.

Bringing your own play partner is always awesome, but not required; while couples and groupings are always encouraged to come together (hey, isn’t that always nice?), it’s not a requirement to have a partner to come to Rough Crowd.

All genders, ages, experience levels, races, shoe sizes, sexual orientations and preferences, religions, pet preferences, fitness levels, tax brackets, partnership status, poly, D/s, M/s, height, eye color, and pizza topping choices are welcome (even all veggie pizza, if that’s your thing; your pizza is not my pizza, and that’s OK).

If you’re into rough body play, or if you think this sounds interesting, then yes, it *is* for you. Come to Rough Crowd for overview, instruction, and practice time. Safety and technique will be first, and then ideas and practice time. No experience necessary; you’ll have some by the time you leave.

Rough Crowd is successful because you guys make it successful. When I post these things, they get as far as the people I know on my own feed, and the few groups I post them in.
