CBT: Squeezing, Smacking, and Stretching

Sat, Feb 17 from 1pm - 3pm

  • 18+
Online ticket sales have ended, but tickets are available at the door on a first come, first served basis.

This rope workshop will be a hands-on class with active participation and rope tying. We will briefly analyze the various aspects of CBT such as male anatomy, health risks, and safety precautions to keep in mind. We will then discuss various techniques for squeezing, smacking, and stretching the cock and balls. We will then conclude with 3 different CBT ties and practical hands-on practice with step-by-step follow-along instructions. 

Materials: Thinner 1/4in rope is often preferred for CBT ties such as nylon, cotton, hemp or paracord rope. If you would like to participate in the hand-on tying, you will need to bring at least 15ft of one of these types of rope. 
Disclaimer: There will be full male nudity with a live demonstration of CBT techniques. Participants will also be allowed to get naked to participate in the hands-on practice but it is not required. Individuals are allowed to simply observe. It is not required to come with a partner but it is highly encouraged. The three tying techniques may be done with self tying.
