BOE presents: Pinching, Poking, and Tender Points with Rook42, July 19

Board of Education, BoEDETROIT — “Rough Bodyplay” covers a pretty wide spectrum. This class is intended for non-impact force and working with a partner on the ground, including where to pinch/poke, how to apply force, and how to help mitigate injuries.
Tentative topics include:

  • Disclaimers
  • Space concerns
  • Grappling
  • Pressure points/pain compliance/pinching (aka…the stuff I actually enjoy, and the bulk of the class).
  • Thumbs, fingers, knuckles, toes, and feet- where to stick them.
  • Receivership- a couple tips to reduce your risk of injury from the bottom
  • Nifty tricks (from the top)-

—developing and targeting tension
—weak areas/leverage
—compromising balance
…and so forth.

Rook42, sadist, into pinching and poking. I’ve played in the scene off and on for a while.
Pinching/poking/grappling is kind of a big deal for me because it:

  • doesn’t require my toybag
  • “works” for me
  • is difficult to ignore or acclimate to
  • is an exploratory process, as compared to a ritual

Please RSVP on our event page here!

Join us at 6pm for a meet and greet dinner with Rook42 at O’Henry’s, located inside the hotel. Please enter through to door with the green awning. You can find the menu for O’Henry’s here on their website.
