This event has passed.

Do you prefer the bite of a handcuff to the caress of rope? Are you having trouble tying all those knots? Does the sound of a padlock clicking into place get you hard or wet?

Seattle's a big rope town, and it's easy to forget that there are LOTS of ways to restrain someone without rope.

This workshop is your chance to get up close and personal with a whole lot of extraordinary bondage equipment.  Some of this equipment comes from Max's personal collection, some items are borrowed from other bondage tops around town, and most items are available for sale at Lover's Lair.

Workshop format

The workshop will begin with several demonstrations of high-end bondage equipment. You'll get a chance to ask questions and see how the gear works.

We'll have sleepsacks, straitjackets, cuffs, a cage, hoods and more. For each type of gear, Max will address

What makes it special and cool

Gear-specific technique

Safety considerations specific to this type of gear

If you're a rope fan, this workshop may open your eyes to a new world of play. And if you like bondage gear, you'll love the opportunity to see and use some cool gear.

There will be lots of time to ask questions, handle and examine the gear, and to put it on your partner or try it on yourself. We won't be doing "scenes", but this is a great opportunity to learn, have fun, and experiment with equipment you wouldn't normally have access to.

Who should attend?

This workshop is perfect for both bondage tops and bondage bottoms. If you've wanted to see how the equipment in the movies and on the web sites feels, come try it on. If you've contemplated an expensive equipment purchase or commissioning a piece of custom gear, come check out what we have and talk with the other folks in the room. And if you just want to watch a stunning display of exotic bondage "stuff", this is the place.

Bondage Bottoms: this is your chance to meet some bondage tops! Come learn and experience a LOT of cool gear.

If you can, come with a practice partner. If you don't have a partner, come anyway and we'll make sure you get a chance to see how the gear works.

This workshop assumes no previous bondage experience, and is appropriate for all genders and orientations.

Afterwards

Attendees receive an illustrated handout to facilitate your learning and retention. Attendees also receive a 20% discount coupon for purchases at Lover's Lair.

Max will be available after the workshop to help you shop for toys.
