Rough Crowd September: Cunt Kicking

Rough Crowd Date: Sunday, September 11, 2016


How do I love thee? Let me *punt!* count *punt!* the ways *punt!* *punt!*

We’re pretty sure that’s the original Shakespeare.

Cuntbusting. Pussy kicking. The ol’ punt in the cunt. Regardless of what you like to call it, if you’re into some humiliation, degradation, and pain, this can definitely be for you. Shall we say “right up your alley?” Phrasing!

Of course, just hauling off and kicking someone can be ineffective, messy, dangerous, or just have the wrong result – there are right ways and wrong ways and in-between ways. We’ll talk about how to begin if you’re curious and never tried this, and move on to different positions and body parts – from punching and slapping to kicking and grinding, and how to keep everyone safe while arriving at just the right amount of… shall we call it “experience?” for everyone involved.

Whether you’re male, female, non binary, or anything else, anyone can enjoy kicking their friends and loved ones in the cunt – so long as the vaginal title-holder is interested in this happening, of course. Consent is everything… especially at this level of loving violence.

Bringing a partner for practice is particularly recommended for this one. Also, some have been known to need a change in underwear after these sorts of things, so please pack accordingly!

Today’s guest cu… er, demo bottom will be the lovely Sound of Rain (https://fetlife.com/users/2553643).

Things To Bring

* A practice partner is nice!
* Maybe a second pair of panties?
* Gloves and a towel if you’re a squirter!

It’s Summertime! Come Have A Burrito!
When the weather is nice, we have a tradition at Rough Crowd: everyone is invited to join us for post-Rough Crowd eats. Generally, it’s at a little Mexican grille that we love just down the street, where their food is delicious, the margaritas are questionable, the prices are decent, and there’s an outdoor tented seating area where we can take over a bunch of tables and chill.

The weather should be pretty good for this weekend so if you’re interested, plan on joining us afterwards for some food and relaxation. It’s not a full-on munch, but it’s a great re-entry after class.


Who Is Rough Crowd For?
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 August: Grappling for Kinky People (feat. DoNotGoGently)

Rough Crowd Date: Sunday, August 7, 2016


This month we have a special guest speaker, DoNotGoGently, who will be presenting Grappling for Kinky People.
You wanna wrassle? Have an urge to control another’s body using nothing but your own? DNGG shows you some of the basics of wrestling and grappling. We’ll start with common vocabulary and traditional dominance positioning, then up the ante by exploring ways to “supercharge” your grappling by including MMA style strikes, pressure points, and joint locks. You don’t have to get in the ring, but it’s much more fun than sitting on the sidelines!

Cigar Chicago June Smoker

Smoker Date: Sunday, June 19, 2016


Our next smoker is Sunday, June 19, 2016, 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm at Blue Havana.

It’s been a while, and we’re living up to our promise of “infrequently!” Which means – it’s time!

Yes, it’s Father’s Day, and we recognize some of you have plans and commitments. But if you don’t – or hey, if you do and you want to arrive late! – we’ll be having a nice relaxing cigar.

Also, for those who’ve been when this was a problem: we will no longer have anyone – anyone at all – other than us in our smoking lounge while we’re there. Ahem. Yes.

Kick back with a cigar or two and cigar camaraderie with other kinky cigar lovers. As always, we’re taking over the shop after hours, so it’s just us.

We’re BYOB, so feel free bring your favorite whisky or other spirit and share the love with your friends; who knows, you might just find a new favorite for your bar, too. Or bring some chocolate… but mostly bring yourself.

Patronize Our Host Shop
Like a munch, Cigar Chicago smokers are free to attend, but show the shop we appreciate them letting us use their space and patronize them: they have a fantastic humidor, so buy a cigar. Or two. Or accessories. Or something. (To make it easier, Blue Havana is now extending Cigar Chicago 10% off things purchased during the smoker.)

Who is Welcome
All genders, ages, experience levels, races, shoe sizes, sexual orientations and preferences, partnership status, poly, D/s, M/s, height, eye color, religions, pet preferences, fitness levels, tax brackets, 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).

Bottom line: if you think this sounds interesting, then yes, it is for you. 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.

Here’s the event page on FetLife if you want to go tell the world you’re going: https://fetlife.com/events/458571

Here’s the group and discussion are here: https://fetlife.com/groups/55753/group_posts/9289124

Questions, please feel free to ask. I look forward to seeing you there.

Roughinamorato

Note that since Chicago requires anyone entering a tobacco shop to be 18 or up, and drinking requires you to be 21 or up, please plan on showing a state-issued ID if asked to do so.

Rough Crowd May: Getting Your Photo Kink On! The Basics & Principals You Need (feat. Mistress Mayhem)

Rough Crowd Date: Sunday, May 22, 2016


This month we have a special guest speaker, Mistress Mayhem, who will be presenting Getting Your Photo Kink On! The Basics & Principals You Need.
We’ve all seen amazing kink photography on the internet, but modern cameraphones are good enough to take great images – if you know some photography principles and how to apply them. This class is not about fancy equipment and setup, its about you, your kink, and capturing with the camera you carry with you all the time – your phone. With the simplest list of tools you can capture what you see while you play, without interrupting your play.

We begin with the basics: light, composition, framing your scene, and what you see vs. what the camera sees.

Then we’ll talk about the 5 easy steps that you can start with every time that will simplify everything for you and assure you capture what you want: Alignment, Repetition, Contrast, Proximity, and Balance. As they become a part of what you do every time, you can break the rules and keep exploring.

We may not turn you into the kink Ansel Adams, but we’ll level you up to take better pics of the hotness you make.

A NOTE ON PHOTOGRAPHY AND PRIVACY: Live photography will happen at this workshop, but understanding privacy and consent will also be factors covered, and how to deal with shooting your subject and avoiding breaking consent of people in the background. Rest assured, there should be no unauthorized images of anyone leaving this workshop.

Things To Bring

* Your fully charged phone!
