About the Event
About the Class
There are countless reasons to be drawn to rope – but for many of us, pain isn’t chief among them. So what’s a non-pain slut to do when her chosen medium is liable to provide a whole lot of ouch?
In this class, Killjoy will work through a transition sequence, sharing the active bottoming techniques she uses to mitigate pain, strain, and risk in suspension. Topics will include managing load, differential muscle engagement, breathing techniques, self-adjustments, and tweaks (for both tops and bottoms) that can make familiar poses more comfortable and sustainable.
Format: demo, with discussion and/or skillshare to follow as time permits. No partner is required for this class and you are welcome to come and observe!
About the Presenters
Cannon is a rope top whose style emphasizes intimacy, connection and control. With nearly twenty years of experience, as well as teaching and performance credits throughout North America, he brings both authenticity and accessibility to audiences of all skill levels. Killjoy’s bottoming style is playful, sensual, and emotionally complex. As an educator she is passionate about consent, active/engaged bottoming, and building connective experiences from both sides of the exchange. Both separately and together, they have presented for groups such as Bondage Expo Dallas, Ropecraft, and Kink.com, and performed at events such as Electric Forest, Detroit Dirty Show and Theatre Bizarre.
