Malice Aforethought: Anticipation as a Tool for Negotiation and Scene-Building @ Williamson 1

We love our spontaneous scenes that grow organically, but what if it were also true that you can construct a scene, down to the details, and still have it be fun and sexy? What if, even, the very fact that everyone knows what’s going to happen is what makes it fun and sexy? Consent is not the death of fun and options – it’s the basis for both.
In this workshop, AltBronte will introduce comprehensive opt-in negotiation and how to use it to build hot rope (and other) scenes. She’ll discuss ways of using anticipation and foreknowledge to make the scene hotter and more collaborative, both before play and during, and then demonstrate a scene built on these principles. After this, participants will be invited to negotiate and build a scene using the concepts demonstrated.

SelfTying and SelfSuspension

Learn how to safely tie your favorite person: you! Learn a few ways to restrain yourself for either preparation for your partner or as the prelude to some romantic “alone time”. Then students will learn how to suspend themselves without the need for a partner. Safety, preparation, methods of quick release, and exploration of the “worst case scenario” will all be discussed before a single student will be suspended.

Class Type: Tie-along suspension
