Will that Hold Me: Assessing Hardpoints for Suspension Bondage

Sat, Apr 11 from 1pm - 3pm

This event has passed.

The most catastrophic accidents in suspension bondage are caused by hardpoint failure. Yet for most  of us it is the one thing in our suspension play we have the least control or knowledge about. This class is for both tops and bottoms with an eye toward giving you the skills you need to look up and decide "will that hold me"  (or the one you love). We will discuss in layman's terms how things actually fail and what signs to look for that a hardpoint has been poorly maintained or is too weak. I will show examples of things done right and things done wrong as well as demonstrate some failures in the class. This class is a must for any top or bottom who wants to play with suspension. There will be time for discussion of class examples as well and students are encouraged to bring their questions. Although the official end time for the class is 3:00pm, the instructor will stay online to answer more questions if needed.
