LRA and Roughinamorato invite you to Grab some A.S.S.!

… consensually, of course.

Hi. The folks at the LRA have asked me to host a new workshop series by and for advanced players. It’s not so much lessons, or classes, as it is sharing knowledge amongst people who’ve been around. Sharing skills. An Advanced Skill Share. ASS.

I like some ASS on a Saturday afternoon. Don’t you?

What we’re going to try to create with this is a space where people with experience can come and learn at an advanced level; we won’t have to worry about putting up with the first half of the class to get to the part we want; my hope is that it’s going to be kind of like hanging out with a friend and asking them, “hey, show me how you did that cool thing.”

Over the coming year I’m going to invite some people in to talk or show some good stuff, and each time I want to have some open share time; I’d call it show n tell but I get a little urpy just saying that in my mind.

The first one will be this Saturday at the LRA, before the club opens, from 6pm – 8pm. It’s free, but you have to register – you can do that here at roughcrowd.org, on the sidebar – just click on the ASS.

Rough Crowd January: Skin Torture – Quiet, Close Pain

Rough Crowd Date: Sunday, January 25, 2015

Sure, there’s slapping and stinging, but then there’s also pinching, squeezing, pulling, twisting… so many fun things to do to skin, and so many that are quiet, covert, and close!

This may be shallow-impact stuff, but it can also be beautifully bruising and incredibly intense. Some easy ideas, some slightly more intense, and of course ways to ramp that up, and up, and up. Come to this class to learn some interesting (and maybe new to you!) ideas on how to bring your partner delightful pain through the torture of just their skin.

1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

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.

You can help wherever you and your kinky brethren and… sistren?… gather.
Feel free to spread the word in whatever way you have available to you.


Hope to see a bunch of you at Rough Crowd,


Rough Crowd T-Shirts Have Arrived!


It’s been a long time coming… Rough Crowd t-shirts are finally available: show that you’re part of a rough crowd, and THE Rough Crowd * – wear your method of affection proudly with our new t-shirtsWe have a limited run available for order – delivery will begin mid-January.

They come in two designs: one we’re calling “Little Logo,” which has the Rough Crowd logo on the front breast pocket (there’s not really a pocket there, but you know what I mean), and our motto, Violent Displays of Affection on the back in bold red lettering. Here’s an artist’s rendering of it:


The other style we’re calling the “VDA,” and it has our motto, Violent Displays of Affection, across the chest, with the logo large across the back. Here’s a mockup of that one:


Both designs are available in men’s and women’s cut short-sleeved t-shirts (please self-identify for whichever one is right for you), and a unisex long-sleeved version. All are black t-shirts, 100% preshrunk ringspun cotton, and they’re not done in that gross plasticy printing – these are high quality shirts. All available in Small through XXXL.

Available now, here:


* Prior attendance at Rough Crowd not necessary for purchase. Anyone can buy them. They make great gifts – I’ll bet Grandma would look smashing in a Violent Displays of Affection t-shirt. Not to be used as currency. Please no wagering. “Men’s” and “Women’s” designations on t-shirts are based solely on manufacturer identification, and buyers are encouraged to make their own determination of how they really feel inside – but just know that the “women’s” cut has tapered side seams to fit and accentuate your curves, so if you feel like a pretty girl on the inside, but on the outside you have the body of a beer-guzzling long-haul trucker, maybe just grit your teeth and buy the other t-shirt style. Keep the heels – they bring out your calves beautifully. The t-shirt doesn’t label you. You’re you. And beautiful. In our t-shirt.
