Fred Rx is returning to Orlando!
We're going from 0-60 in this 2-day event! We'll start on Friday with the How and Why of some Fundamentals, bringing intention and deliberation to these basic elements. Building on those Fundamentals, Saturday has 3 classes that go beyond the technical and show you how to integrate rope into your scenes, with some emphasis on the primal and painful sides of rope.
Saturday: 11am-7pm (with 1 hour break)
Snacks and hydration are available for sale on site, however you may also bring your own.
You are also strongly encouraged to bring some sort of padding for the floor, such as a mat or blanket.
Attendance is limited so please don't wait to register!
About Fred Rx:
FredRX began tying several years ago, using a variety of Eastern and Western techniques to enhance his BDSM scenes. He quickly developed an independent passion for rope, and began learning rope for its own sake. The passion led him to seek out teachers and workshops around the State and eventually, abroad, where he focused on learning as many styles and techniques as he could find. He then worked to integrate this knowledge back into his own primal and intuitive style of play, which has allowed him to combine complex rope and improvisational scenes in a completely unique manner. He now teaches his own style of primal rope, but always encourages students to manipulate and expand his methods to fit their own needs.
In the beginning, most of us tend to rush through the building blocks of tying. We tend to jump into the more complicated patterns and ties, before learning how and why to execute the fundamentals correctly. In this class, aimed at all levels, we'll discuss variants and technicalities of single and double column ties, half and munter hitches, and simple tools such as hojo cuffs. We'll train ourselves to think critically about the simple parts of complex ties, using these basic elements with intention and deliberation. Ultimately, understanding and mastering these skills will allow a rigger to construct or engineer more complex ties fluidly and safely.
Saturday: No Shirt, No Hard Point, No Problem
Ever wanted to grapple your bottom down into the mud, twist them and tie them, without worrying about aesthetics or suspension? This class will focus on the flow and potential of floor work rope, and using rope as a tool alongside your hands and body. An understanding of (at least a couple) knots/single column ties/whatever is required, as this class will present methods of integrating rehearsed rope techniques into improvised scenes. The use of rope will be considered alongside the use of body weight and manipulation to contort and control the bottom. The class will emphasis interpersonal connection, and the technique of remaining actively engaged with the bottom.
Saturday: Hojo-Hishi TK- 3 in 1
In this class, you’ll learn the basic structure of a fully functional Hojo-inspired TK harness, along with an aesthetically enhanced variation. We’ll cover a harness that leaves the front of the chest fully exposed and accessible for torture and sensual play. We’ll then build through a hishi variation ending in a full diamond pattern, focusing on distributing pressure and maximizing sensation. Throughout the class, we’ll focus on the technical aspects of the tie, particularly those which are useful training for other hojo ties. We’ll also aim to combine a painful application of rope with deliberate and constructive technique, ending with a tortuous and aesthetically pleasing harness.
Saturday: Semenawa BBQ
Want to torture someone, but your toy bag has gone missing? Developed over years of trial, Fred_Rx will share his primal methods for inflicting pain and suffering using only rope and body dynamics. Beginning with elements of classic semenewa, we’ll discuss how to enhance connection and effectiveness by using body control. From pressure points, to contortion and torque, to weight exchange, you and your partner’s body will facilitate an array of sensations and agonies. This class will teach a few simple methods for giving pain, and then focus on combining elements to develop scenes tailored to your own abilities and preferences.
