So – you've learned the "fundamentals" and now you're ready for more. This workshop helps you get to the next level by addressing the subtler topics which are applicable to most rope bondage scenes.

We'll talk about rope – types, diameters, strength – and we'll have plenty of rope on-hand to feel and evaluate. We'll talk about resources for rope bondage – where to find rope, hardware, and information.

We'll talk about knots, and we'll practice some of the basic knots you'll use in your bondage scenes. We'll talk about bondage positions - for fun, for pleasure, for pain, for sex, and for aesthetics.

And we'll talk about the "soft" parts of a bondage scene – things like rhythm, pace, connection, and showmanship. These are the things they never tell you in the books or on the web.

Much of the class will consist of hands-on exercises to help you get familiar with the material in a friendly, low-pressure environment. The emphasis is on learning, having fun, and building confidence.

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 practice the basic techniques. Rope Bottoms - this is your chance to meet some rope tops - come learn and get tied up!

Some rope will be provided for the workshop, but bring the following if you can

(2) 10-foot pieces of 5/16" (8mm) or 3/8"
(3) 30-foot piece of 5/16" (8mm) or 3/8"

If you don't have suitable rope, Monk (of www.TwistedMonk.com) will be selling hemp rope before the workshop. Please show up 15 minutes early if you would like to buy rope.

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


When: 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM
Cost: $40, $35 in advance
(No other CSPC discounts or AYCE cards applicable.)
