Event Details

Last July we did Breath Play, and it was our biggest-attended Rough Crowd yet. So we're going to do it again, with more notice this time, and get everyone who said they were bummed they couldn't come last time!

Also note that this is the first Sunday in March, not the second.


Sometimes when you're doing rough body play, and someone starts getting all rowdy (or horny) you just need to choke someone out.

Breath play, like so much of rough body play, is very primal and animalistic; the need to breathe is core to life, and tapping into that fear can lead to all sorts of fun! It can be disorienting, terrifying, fuzzy-floating... for some people it brings on heightened sensation and submission. For others, it brings an incredible sense of intimacy, focus, and connection.

We'll talk about several methods, risks and ways to mitigate them, and some techniques to help you find the way that works best on you or your partner.

Due to the nature of breath play, bringing your own play partner is highly encouraged for this workshop.


Today's Details:

Sunday, March 3, 2013
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Register for location and directions
FetLife event page is here; do sign up, but you still have to RSVP (see below).
FetLife discussion page is here

If you're into rough body play, or just interested, come to Rough Crowd for an overview, instruction, and practice time. Safety and technique will be first, and then ideas and practice time. No experience necessary; you'll have some by the time you leave. ***Bringing a play partner is highly recommended for this day.***

Age, race, gender identification, partnership status, poly, D/s, height, eye color... all do not matter here. If you think this sounds interesting, then yes, it *is* for you. While couples and groupings are always encouraged to come together (hey, isn't that always nice?), it's not a requirement to have a partner to come to Rough Crowd. 


Rough Crowd is:

• 18 & up
• Cheap (ten bucks!)
• Open to all levels of skill and experience

Every attendee must register for any given Rough Crowd. Registration deadline is 24 hours in advance. No exceptions: you must be registered for the event to attend.

How Rough Crowd Works:
If you've never been to a Rough Crowd before (or if you just have questions), check out our Rough Crowd details: What, Where, When, How. It's like a FAQ, but smaller.

A Favor:
Rough Crowd is successful because you guys make it successful. When I post these things, they get as far as the people I know on my own feed, and the few groups I post them in. But the more people this reaches, the better.

You can help on FetLife:
You can help get the word out by posting (or re-posting) about Rough Crowd, and linking to this discussion or the event page above, in any groups you're a part of, or even in your own status. That helps spread the word beyond my own personal network, and we can reach a larger and more diverse crowd. The more the merrier, and new faces are always welcome and encouraged.

You can help on Twitter:
You can also help by following me on Twitter ( for for updates (and other random pervy things). Help by retweeting info about Rough Crowd; this helps spread the word even further. Thank you!

You can help wherever you and your kinky brethren and... sistren?... gather:
Feel free to spread the word in whatever way you have available to you.

Post away, people! TIA.


Hope to see a bunch of you at Rough Crowd,
