RiggerJay's Workshops

Boudoir Photography

Don't let your camera equipment top you! With so much of the kinky play being an opportunity for making art, porn and capturing memories, let's look at how to make photography a part of our erotic journey. From understanding the technology of higher-end digital cameras (like what all of those dials mean and do) to lighting, we will dive into the technology to help make photos you can be proud of (including pictures on a budget). And for those of us who are taking pictures of people other than our lovers - let's look at respect and consent with our models, including using model releases for ensuring consent for the future. In this demonstration and lecture, we will also discuss what you want out of photo-play, making photo-play sexy and fun! This class is intended for beginners, and is a lecture/demo. A camera is NOT required.

Type of workshop: Discussion, Demo

Great Escape Rope Games

What could be more fun than playing games with rope?! Come to this interactive class and find out just how much fun with rope you can have. Do you like to test your ties against a bottom to see if they are securely bound? Do you enjoy struggling and wiggling out of rope ties? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then this is the class for you! Participate in a series of timed events in which your skills of tying and escaping will be challenged. Participation is not required; watching the games is quite an amusing and educational experience as well!

Some rope (4+ x 25-30 ft hanks of rope; clothesline or something similar from your local hardware store would work) is needed to make the most of this event, also bringing friends to work with will also increase the enjoyment of the session.

Type of workshop: Hands-On

I Know a Few Ties; Now What?
