Rough Crowd March: 50 Shades of Reality: Introduction to The World of Kink and BDSM

Rough Crowd Date: Sunday, March 15, 2015


The world of BDSM is very real, and not surprisingly, Hollywood does about as good a job at accurately depicting kink and BDSM as it does portraying the real life of being a cowboy, fireman, or soldier… which is to say, it generally doesn’t. But that’s OK – thats not Hollywood’s job. So when you want to learn more about the realities of kink and BDSM, where can you turn? What is it really like? Do you have to be a weird millionaire? Is it all so … forceful and rapey?

It turns out, no. The world of kink, and the kink community, are real and built on a culture of consent, mutual respect, clearly negotiated power exchange, and explicit communication between partners and players.

If you’d like to learn a little more about the realities of kink and BDSM in a friendly, open, non-threatening space, take a first step and come join us for this very special edition of Rough Crowd.

SPECIAL NOTE TO EXPERIENCED KINKY PEOPLE: Please, pass this along to your kink-curious vanilla friends, or better yet, invite them along and come with them to help them feel comfortable. There has never been a better time to get more honest and real information out to the curious-but-misinformed masses!

Rough Crowd is held in the middle of a Sunday afternoon in a real working dungeon (though it won’t be while we’re there!). There are zero expectations – street clothes and jeans are fine, and the day is focused on education and talking – nobody will be expected to do anything that makes them uncomfortable.

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.

Spread The Word:
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. But the more people this reaches, the better. To spread the word beyond my own personal network, so and we can reach a larger and more diverse crowd, you can help. The more the merrier, and new faces are always welcome and encouraged.

Spread the word on FetLife:
You can help spread the word by posting (or re-posting) about Rough Crowd, linking to this discussion or the event page, in any groups you’re a part of, or even in your own status.

Spread the word on your personal blog:
You can help spread the word on the non-FL web by posting about Rough Crowd and linking to the roughcrowd.org url above. Posts here always have a sister post there.

You can help on Twitter:
You can help spread the word by following me on Twitter (http://twitter.com/roughinamorato) for updates (and other random pervy things) and retweeting info about Rough Crowd.
