Boots. Flesh. A combination full of intriguing possibilities. In this class, Parker RopeBoi will share some of their favorite sexy and sadistic tricks and tips for using boots for pleasure and pain. The class will demonstrate and discuss gauging and applying different kinds and amounts of pressure with boots to different body parts, which body parts can handle more or less boot pressure, and how different floor ties and partial/full suspension ties affect the intensity of boot pressure and require different kinds of trampling techniques. Topics demonstrated might include: standing on and “trampling” a person, kicking, bootlicking, bootblacking, better balance while trampling, using just boot pressure to immobilize body parts, and/or leaving boot marks. Different types of boots (e.g. work boots, motorcycle boots, riding boots, stiletto heel boots) and different parts of a boot, and how those affect possibilities for boot play, will be addressed. Screaming, groaning, and laughing are highly likely. Demos aim to inspire you to bring your own style and ideas for integrating boots into a scene. Participants will have time to try out some of these techniques and to explore boot play according their own interests, limits, and preferences. (Participation is entirely optional and consent is paramount.)
Parker RopeBoi is a Brooklyn-based queer rope top and versatile SM player. As a rope instructor and performer, Parker is known especially for their rope suspension and self-suspension techniques. Since 2009, Parker has been presenting workshops, intensives, and performances across North America and Europe, including at RopeCraft Chicago, Bondage Expo Dallas, Anatomie Studio London, Foundation for Sex-Positive Culture in Seattle, Dark Odyssey, Vox Body Studio, Tension Montreal, Bound in Boston, and Shibaricon.

Parker respects that everyone is different and that there are no one-size-fits-all techniques. Parker strives to foster an inclusive, affirming environment for adults of all bodies, histories, and identifications to learn and enjoy these activities.
