Rope is one of the most versatile and accessible erotic props available. Once you know the basics, it’s easy to start building more “complicated” ties. There will be a quick review of the 3 basic knots/wraps with variations on each, and then Jim will introduce a few intermediate and versatile knots. The rest of this class will focus on developing the skills needed to devise your own combination of bondage ties, including harnesses.

This class is based on a basic understanding of safety and any single-column and two-column bondage ties. There will be info specifically for the person being tied to be an active and proactive participant in the bondage fun.  Please bring an open mind, and be ready to explore and have fun. Each participant is encouraged to tie and be tied during the exercises.

If you have taken “Learning the Ropes”, “Bedroom Bondage Basics”, or “Rope Bondage 101”, you are ready for the next step! Never picked up rope before? This is a good class to get a taste of the basics and have homework aplenty to work on later.

Suggested rope to bring: Two pieces of 12’-18’ lengths and two pieces of 25’-30’ lengths in a diameter between 5mm and 8mm. (There will be a limited amount of rope available for loan.)

Cost at the door: $40.
