Using Rope to Create Headspace

We all start our learning with basic skills - how to perform the elements of a scene and how to master the tools we’ve chosen to use. Rope tops learn knots, develop a few bondage positions and absorb a lot of safety information.

That’s not why we do scenes though – we do them because they’re engaging, powerful and HOT.

In this intimate workshop, Max demonstrates how to move from restraint to dominance, and from basic skills to mastery. Rope bondage is the context for this workshop, but many of the techniques are applicable to any scene.

We’ll start with a scene demonstrating the use of rope, voice, motion and affect to create headspace and establish mood.

After the opening scene Max discusses specific techniques you can incorporate to elicit the responses you want. This isn’t a “how to tie knots” class, but there will be some time for hands-on practice and Q&A.

As with all of Max's workshops, a handout will be provided to facilitate your learning and retention.

This workshop assumes no previous BDSM experience and is appropriate for all genders, all orientations, and for both tops and bottoms.


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