Come learn to make your rope play hotter, deeper, and more intimate in a fun, playful, supportive class.

Fancy ties are cool, but for many people, the real attraction of doing rope is the powerful feelings of intimacy, power, and surrender it evokes. In this three-hour class, we’ll explore safe, beautiful, and effective ways to move away from just putting knots on your partner, and build skill and intuition for ‘tying the spirit.’

Drawing especially on the traditional and beautiful ties found in the Japanese art of Shibari/Kinbaku, and core physical partner skills found in martial arts and dance, we’ll explore exercises for building intimacy with rope.

We’ll also learn basic knots and ties needed to make your rope look and feel sexy on your partner, and of course, examine safety issues as well.

Tops: This is a great class for learning those precise tying and key ‘soft skills’ for making a rope scene hot.

Bottoms: This is a great class for learning how to mesh and connect with your partner in rope! Expect to spend the majority of the class getting plenty of hands on practice in a friendly, non-competitive environment.

There is no prerequisite for this course, and it is definitely appropriate for all genders, sexual orientations, and body types.

Equipment & Dress: Vanilla to the door.
Rope tops will need to bring:
(5) 24’- 30’ pieces of 6mm rope.
Hemp or jute is recommended, but synthetic rope is fine.

Don’t have any rope? We’ll have a little extra on hand for use, and Twisted Monk will be vending his excellent bondage rope before the class.

Attendees must be 18+.
