“Rope for sex” doesn’t always mean positions – some people like to include rope directly on the genitals. This class will be a hands-on tie-along demo as Graydancer and Naiia show several techniques for tying rope on cocks, balls, vulvas, and asses for pleasure, pain, or whatever your consensual kink desires.

Come to this class to learn some fun sexy rope stuff that you can do that doesn’t require a master’s degree in shibari. Interactive tying. Participants will need 5 – 6 pieces of rope. Knowing how to tie a single column will be helpful but covered.
Lecture where participants will learn about rope safety, risk awareness, and care for before, during, and after a rope experience. Hands-on workshop where participants will learn foundation knots, hitches, frictions, and forms to form a solid base from which they can start their rope journey.
