Anatomy of a Face Down Suspension with Fuoco


Face down suspensions are often encountered early in one's rope journey for both riggers and bottoms. However, this seemingly easy-to-tie position is a notoriously challenging suspension. That said, a deeper understanding of the anatomy that supports this position can dramatically improve how accessible bottoms may find it, and a keener attention to balance and alignment from riggers can make a world of difference.

In this class we'll address the anatomical structures that support the hips in facedown and how to manage your body best in this challenging position. We'll also look at common rigging mistakes and examine what constitutes a balanced position. Lab time will be provided for folks to explore these things on their own!

Pre-reqs: riggers should have received formal education in suspension techniques. Bottoms should be comfortable with suspension and should feel confident in their ability to distinguish between circulation and nerve sensations.

About the presenter:

Fuoco began her rope journey as a bottom in Phoenix six years ago and shortly thereafter moved to London, where much of her early rope learning happened. Upon moving back to the United States, she began presenting at cons around the country sharing her love of rope. She is switchy in rope, a vocal advocate for rope bottoms, and an unapologetic feminist as she navigates the world of kink. As an educator, she's decidedly non-dogmatic in her approach to teaching. Her classes instead aim to teach bottoms to better understand their bodies and the unique needs of their anatomies and to offer riggers the tools to adapt their tying accordingly and understand the logic behind those adaptations.

When she’s not doing rope, Fuoco is a professional acrobat, constantly training to build strength, flexibility, and body awareness. Her dedicated study of the mechanics of the body make her especially interested in developing more comprehensive education for bottoms informed by these practices.
