Roughinamorato* is a charmingly sadistic bastard who firmly believes that kink should be fun; just because you’re beating or torturing someone doesn’t mean you can’t both have a good laugh between the screams. He’s been presenting and teaching in the vanilla world as a software geek for over 15 years, and active and presenting in the BDSM scene since 2006.
He runs Rough Crowd a monthly rough body play group in Chicago, and created, co-organized and presented at BAM! Chicago, a rough body play intensive weekend. He’s taught at nationally-renown clubs in Chicago, GD2 and the LRA, events including Shibaricon, MadtownKinkfest, Tournament, and Twisted Tryst, and kink groups across the Midwest from MIN-KY in Minnesota to GRALE in Grand Rapids. He enjoys most forms of rough body play, as well as humiliation, degradation, and objectification.
His journey of self-discovery into kink and BDSM – things that have really always been there, deep inside for him – has led him to want to share that joy and pain with others, through classes about BDSM, kink, and sexual expression, both physically-oriented and mentally-focused.
Rough will be leading this discussion. Relationships, even the best of them, take work. Adding D/s on top of it can add its own challenges. How do you talk about your feelings when you’re supposed to be the Dom and know everything? How can you communicate when you’re a slave without being seen as taking control?
Come to this open discussion roundtable, and bring your partner, your questions, your sticky wickets and relationship stumpers. Wherever you’re going, are, or have been, so has someone else, and we’ll find thoughts and suggestions to help get you some new tools for handing whatever the bump in your road is. Think of them as toys for the mind.
*While not really a doctor, Roughinamorato has been known to play doctor every now and then.
