Since joining the kink scene in Seattle in 2011, Trouble has become an advocate for enthusiastic consent, risk mitigation, saying "folks" instead of "guys", and all things latex. Whether teaching solo or with a group, her focus is on doing dangerous things well, and feeling good while doing them. Outside of teaching, Trouble leads a women's rope group, and is the visual art manager for Seattle Erotic Art Festival.

She's called Trouble for a reason. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Rope and Heels

All their adult lives, the presenters have been lovers of audibly, visually, and emotionally loud shoes. This class combines their passion for confidence-inspiring footwear with safety, dominance, and free-form rope bondage. Attendees will learn how to walk in heels (or boots) to evoke specific reactions, physical safety for both the wearer and receiver of heels, tips and tricks for confident topping, and basic free-form bondage techniques. No prior experience is needed and bondage practitioners of all skill levels, genders, and sexual orientations are encouraged to participate. Supplies: at least one piece of 20'-30' rope, and that pair of shoes you love/hate to wear. Tops and bottoms are encouraged to wear high heels.
