AltBronte (she/her) has been running around mostly unsupervised with rope for the past six years; miraculously, no one has seen fit to stop her. As a queer poly switch who self-suspends, she likes to consider things from all angles, including upside-down. When not tying in her playful non-aesthetic style, she can be found moonlighting as a shiny latex toy or a Haflinger pony named Jinx.

Malice Aforethought: Anticipation as a Tool for Negotiation and Scene-Building @ Williamson 1
Oct 27 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
Malice Aforethought: Anticipation as a Tool for Negotiation and Scene-Building @ Williamson 1

We love our spontaneous scenes that grow organically, but what if it were also true that you can construct a scene, down to the details, and still have it be fun and sexy? What if, even, the very fact that everyone knows what’s going to happen is what makes it fun and sexy? Consent is not the death of fun and options – it’s the basis for both.
In this workshop, AltBronte will introduce comprehensive opt-in negotiation and how to use it to build hot rope (and other) scenes. She’ll discuss ways of using anticipation and foreknowledge to make the scene hotter and more collaborative, both before play and during, and then demonstrate a scene built on these principles. After this, participants will be invited to negotiate and build a scene using the concepts demonstrated.

Full-Body Rope Handling
Oct 27 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Full-Body Rope Handling

The classic image of the rigger kneeling behind the bottom and wrapping their arms comfortably around them is a very pretty one… but it’s not the only way to tie and handle rope. AltBronte has spent years developing an active style of tying that is well-suited to smaller tops tying larger bottoms, but it can be fun for anyone! Learn to think beyond static tying and use all the limbs and movement you have to tie while maintaining connection and energy. There will also be some classic rope handling skills and drills. Come dressed to MOVE!

Class Type: Tie-along floorwork
Participation: Pairs or groups
