Mar 24 – Class: Partial suspension for complete sadists

February 26, 2012 at 4:17 am (class, general)

If you love rope and you love to hurt people or be hurt, this class is for you. You’ll learn and/or experience tying and hoisting techniques that can be challenging and painful in their own right, and open the door for S&M with other implements.

In this class you will:
• learn my theories on challenging ties
• discuss various ways of installing overhead points at home or on the go
• lean how to properly tie and test a suspension ring to an overhead point
• discuss the advantages of partial suspensions for sadistic ends
• review “hands-on” the foundations of limb tying and chest binding
• learn “hands-on” the complete arm/chest binding
• explore various ways to complete the partial suspension
• see and (time permitting) practice other partial suspensions

Couples only this time, Switching is welcom but not necessary. Those wishing to be tied (including singles) should wear supple yet form fitting clothes. NO JEANS.

Bring a towel or yoga mat and juice or a small snack! Bring 4 lengths of 25′-30′ hemp or jute rope, or use our loaner rope. Please do not bring cotton or synthetic fiber rope

Dec 10: Toys + Bondage = Fun

October 12, 2009 at 1:00 am (class, general)

Just in time for some last minute shopping… It’s the return of “Japanese Rope Bondage with Gadgets” class, at the best toy store in the Bay Area, Stormy Leather!

Get Smart! When I think of Japan, I think of two things: rope bondage and fun sex toys. Actually, I often think of them together, and you should, too.

This class will show you how to tie for and around dildos, plugs, eggs, hooks, and vibrators, including the A-Bomb of vibrators, the H*tachi Magic Wand.

Advance tickets available now:

Sep 6 – Tight Ties and Immobilization in the East Bay

June 11, 2009 at 6:55 am (class, general)

It’s a Cinch: Tight Ties and Immobilization at FMU in the East Bay!

More info on their site!

For some people, there is nothing more exquisite than the feeling of binding or being bound extremely tightly, and completely immobilized.

This class explores the mental and physical aspects of very tight bondage and allows students to see first hand why hemp rope is well suited for this purpose. The class will cover good and bad areas for tight body wraps as well as techniques for cinching to a pole, post, or chair.

In the second part of the class, the instructor will cover further methods of immobilization including limb suspension ties where the subject’s torso remains on the ground. Break out your school uniforms as the instructor shows how grade-school geometry and physics
can help you immobilize your subjects.

The class is open to singles, couples, and small groups. Singles should be willing to both tie and be tied. Bottoms should wear form-fitting but supple clothing, or nothing at all — NO JEANS.

April 21- Manufacturing Consent – Rope for Coercion and Control

February 18, 2009 at 2:20 am (class, general)

(Yes, this is the Rape Play class)

Sometimes, your partner surrenders to you in sweet submission. Sometimes… she (or he) does not, and you have to make them… yummy.

Lean Japanese style rope bondage techniques for abduction scenarios, takedowns, and forced positions. THIS CLASS IS NOT FOR EVERYONE: We will discuss roleplay scenarios involving date-rape, incest, and assaults by “strangers.” Through it all we will show how to play with these “hot buttons” within a framework of respect and trust.
