Everyone has that one pair of shoes. You know the ones - the shiny black patent, the inappropriate-for-the-office heel, the laces that go on for days - that you wear on date night but can't wait to take off. Yep, we all have them. We love but we hate them. Whether they are too big, too high, pinchy, or unstable, we all have those shoes that have the look we want and give us the sexy confidence we need, but they're just impractical to wear. Well, I may be able to help.

This all-new class focuses on building your skills and growing your confidence with basic and creative rope bondage as well as how to maintain your strong feminine energy in those oh-so-hot shoes. Students will learn how to tie a simple cuff, maneuver rope around their partner's body - even the big, burly ones with the trick knees - all while wearing those Femme-tastic shoes.

Specifically, class will cover
~bondage safety and consent,
~tips and techniques for taking down a partner larger or stronger than yourself
~ways to move and manipulate a body with little flexibility or unhappy joints
~how to properly size shoes to get the fit and stability you need
~how to walk and tie in high heels (or boots) without tripping or getting tangled in your rope
~improved self-confidence in your look, attitude, and rope prowess.

A shoe-fit expert will be on hand to answer questions and give guidance. If your foot is size 6.5-8 you'll have a chance to try on some Fluevogs and other heels from Trouble's personal collection. Please bring rope if you have it (no specific fiber or length necessary but natural fibers tend to be better), your favorite shoes (feel free to bring more than one pair, especially if you don't mind others trying them on), and a blanket or sheet to sit on. Disposable nylons will be provided, as will loaner rope.

All genders, orientations, and identities who wish to top while wearing heels are welcome. This class is designed for pairs. If you attend without a partner, we will help pair you up with someone. if you attend as a more-some, we will help you adapt the exercises to your group.

All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, religions are welcome and celebrated.

Cost at the door: $45 (Solo)
The "Solo with Rope" admission option includes a 30′ piece of 1/4″ diameter rope and hemp rope sample, courtesy of, to use in class and take home.

No late entry will be allowed due to the safety information at the beginning of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time.
Water available. Please bring your own bottle or cup.
Attendance is limited to 30 people.

About the Educators:

Trouble: Since joining the Seattle kink scene in 2011, Trouble has become an advocate for enthusiastic consent, risk mitigation, inclusion, and (almost) all things rope or latex. Whether teaching solo or with a group, her focus is on making sure everyone's needs are addressed, doing dangerous things well, and feeling good while doing them. Her dynamic and interactive teaching style incorporates multiple learning styles, ensuring that all students have a chance to be heard, participate, and get information specific to their interests. Outside of teaching, Trouble leads a women's rope group and is the visual art manager for Seattle Erotic Art Festival. She's called Trouble for a reason. Don't say we didn't warn you.

This event is presented by the Pan Eros Foundation. Please go to for more information.
