Rope

Art of Restraint

I was asked to perform a clothespin piece for a fundraiser at Femina Potens, an art gallery with a mission to support women, queers, trans folks and the kink community.\’a0 The piece was inspired by the clothespins video dare I shared with Elle and imagery from the blood splatter analysis techniques from the series Dexter.

I also thought that a self suspension would make the clothespins even more fun.\’a0 I suspended myself in a “puppeteering” style that I learned from Lew Rubens on a frame that my friend Stigma built.\’a0 (You can see some of his rigging on devicebondage.com)
The night was an amazing night.\’a0 I really enjoyed performing and watching performances by Lew Rubens, Lochai, James Mogul, Madison Young and more.

The video above includes clips of my performance.\’a0\’a0 Thanks to Leland, Stigma and Jiz and everyone who helped and thanks to Violet Blue, CarnalNation, Suzanne Rachel Forbes and all who covered the event.

Clothespins: Joint dare with Elle!

Elle and I decided to a joint dare:\’a0 See how many clothespins you can put on your body.\’a0 Simple enough.\’a0 I came very close to my original goal and gained insight into how to raise the number of clothespins I can take on my skin.

I can’t wait to see how many she could do and how she documented it.

I want to try it again!
