About the Event
Joining The Raptor Army: Building Tengu Variations (3pm)
Looking for a way to restrict your bottom while avoiding the sensitive nerves in their arms? The Tengu is a great structured harness suitable for all body types and adds a unique shape to your ties in the ground and the air. Come learn how to build your bottom into a raptor and walk away with some techniques to build your own raptor shapes! Both natural fiber and synthetics are welcome in this class.
Tops should have a basic knowledge of single columns, friction/tension and a hands free harness with a solid stem (such as the Shibari Study™ Butterfly Harness). Bottoms should have a basic understanding of body awareness and know the difference between good pain and bad pain.
Requirements: Intermediate to advanced
Student Requirements (Ground): 5-7+ Hanks of Rope, Cutting Tool
Student Requirements (Air): full suspension kit (8-15 ropes, carabiners, straps, ring, etc), Cutting Tool
About the Presenters
Lubegirl (she/her) is a Rope Switch out of the NYC area. Bubbly, personable, and passionate about kink education on both sides of the slash, her goal is to break the stereotypes and myths of Rope (particularly synthetic), one class at a time.
Playing on both sides of the rope since Summer 2015, Lubegirl is currently the leader of the NYC chapter of Hitchin’ Bitches and a facilitator of the NY Rope Collective. 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.
Sladikysova (they/them) is an Non-binary Celestial being from the NYC area. Their goals have been to make a space for themselves and others in the bottom community while helping tying pairs become more in tune and building trust with each other.
The following precautions will be in place for this event:
