Rough Crowd April: Forearms and Elbows

CHICAGO – There’s great power to be had using forearms and elbows, and as we all know, with great power comes great responsibility: the risk of unintended damage is greater too. But used in the right place on the right person at the right time… it can be a really good tool.

So on April 14, come to Rough Crowd to talk and learn about forearms and elbows – the forearm smash, the quiet crusher, the pressure point tickler… I could go on all day. Let’s see how we can incorporate these high torque moves and make sure we don’t break our most precious of toys in the process.

Special note: That evening we’re doing The First Ever Annual Sometimes Rough Crowd Play Party! Come join us for Rough Crowd at our regular space, break for dinner, and then come to GD2 for our first play party!

If you’re a tax procrastinator (protaxinator?), make sure you file before the weekend – you don’t want to miss this just because you were fitfully trying to get your taxes done at the last minute!

Today’s Details:


Sunday, April 14, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Bringing your own play partner is always awesome, but not required; 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.

All genders, ages, experience levels, races, shoe sizes, sexual orientations and preferences, religions, pet preferences, fitness levels, tax brackets, partnership status, poly, D/s, M/s, height, eye color, and pizza topping choices are welcome (even all veggie pizza, if that’s your thing; your pizza is not my pizza, and that’s OK).

If you’re into rough body play, or if you think this sounds interesting, then yes, it is for you. Come to Rough Crowd for 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.
