Interested in presenting at Tethered?

Presenter Application and Information 2023

You’re in luck. There’s a form for that right here!

Our event runs March 3 – March 6, 2023 at the Hilton Stamford Hotel in Stamford, CT. Our event is kink-positive, sex-positive and inclusive of all genders and identities. Our main educational focus is rope bondage, but we are also looking for classes and activities in circus arts, kink topics, relationships, and body movement such as dance and yoga!

Prior to filling out this application: Please be sure you have updated information from your co-presenter, your handouts are ready to go, and your descriptions have been closely reviewed.

The Priority Deadline for Applications is Friday, November 18, 2022. We tend to accept presenters on a rolling bases depending on the needs of the event.

We will notify you by late December about your application’s status, if not before. If you need to update any of your information or your circumstances change, please let us know by email to [email protected]

Tethered Together keeps ticket prices low by being thoughtful about compensation.  Please read this carefully.

You provide: a single 90 minute class taught by you and a co-presenter if applicable.

Honorarium: (2) Event Registrations for the entire weekend and 75 dollars.

Presenters who teach more than 1 class will be provided with:

Honorarium: (2) Event Registrations, 75 dollars per class taught.

Honorarium: (1) Event Registration and 50 dollars.



Generally, presenters who teach 3 or more classes can be helped with the cost of lodging at the host hotel.

Our standard model is:

Providing 1.5 nights for presenters.  You will have the option to share with another presenter and have a free room for 3 nights, or room with someone you pick and we can cover your half of 3 nights. If you are opting to lodging with a friend instead of a presenter, you should book the room, and we will add the cost of 1.5 hotel nights to your honorarium. If you will stay with another presenter, we will book the room for you!


Our performers are not part of this structure and can learn about their honorariums from the person organizing performances, Shay. Performer applications will go live around January 2023.
