About the Event

Do you constantly find yourself tying folks taller than you? Is gravity getting you down when you're trying to lift someone into the air? Are you a bottom who's been told that because you're (insert excuse here) you can't be suspended? Come learn some ways to adapt your suspension that makes it easier on you and your bottom while perpetuating the idea that suspension can be for everyone.

She uses her platform to encourage other female identifying kinksters to learn the basics of rope while facilitating a safe space for bottoms of all orientations, sizes, and identity.
