Yes, Bastinado, the art of beating the foot. Incredibly potent, and traditionally practiced with a stick, whip, length of wire, rubber hose – anything painful, really. Being Rough Body Play folks, we’re going to look at hitting their feet with… us. Skin-on-skin, body to body.
Like the thought of your feet getting hit? Or hitting someone’s feet? Or hate the thought? Does it give you the howling fantods (thanks, @MrsB!)? Then come on by!
Whether you’re thinking bastinado, falanga, or falaka, foot torture has quite the history all over the globe. But international torture can be fun at home! We’ll look at technique, restraint methods, and how to use some things you can find around the house to help you! You don’t need fancy wooden stocks attached to your bed.
Not that any of us have those. Nooooooo….
Also, if you’re practiced in bastinado, please join us to share your misery… er, experience.
- 18 & up
- Cheap (ten bucks!)
- Open to all levels of skill and experience
Please note that we have a new RSVP policy starting this March. It’s not a big deal, but it’s different – so check out our fancy New RSVP Instructions. (Seriously, it’s not that big a deal – promise!)
The event page is here: https://fetlife.com/events/94141/v2. Let us know there, but also RSVP directly so we can put you on the list.
If you do not RSVP, you can no longer get in. We can’t take walk-ins anymore.
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.
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 (http://twitter.com/roughinamorato), and retweeting info about Rough Crowd. This helps spread the word even further. Thank you!
You can help wherever you and your kinky brethren gather:
Feel free to spread the word in whatever way you have available to you.
