About the workshop
This workshop is all about what it means to take ownership of your wellbeing in rope scenes. What actions can you take to mitigate injury, and what decisions do you make that make you more susceptible to injury? Injury often occurs in moments when either bottom or top are engaging in a rope scene that is above their skill level. But, for the bottom who doesn’t tie, deciding whether or not a rigger is tying within their skill level can be a daunting talk. We’ll examine how to evaluate and visually assess a rigger’s skill and how to negotiate rope scenes accordingly to mitigate risk.

Who teaches this class? This workshop is taught by Fuoco.
Feminist. Performance Artist. Switch. Coffee enthusiast.
Fuoco began her rope journey as a bottom in Phoenix five years ago. Since then she had the good fortune to spend a year in London where she gained
exposure to the broader European rope scene and had the opportunity to work with some incredibly talented bottoms and riggers. Upon moving back to the United States, she began presenting at cons around the country sharing her love of rope. She is switchy in rope and a vocal advocate for rope bottoms.
When she’s not doing rope, Fuoco is a full time circus student, constantly training to build strength and flexibility. Her dedicated study of the mechanics of the body make her especially interested in developing more comprehensive education for bottoms informed by these practices.
What should I bring and what do I wear? We have a communal kitchenette, fridge and microwave, so feel free to bring lunch/snacks. Tea and coffee are free.

We advise against loose fitting clothing and also jeans can sometimes feel a bit restrictive to move around in and difficult to tie on. We have communal ropes if you don’t have your own.
