2017 Class Offerings
Tying on Bamboo
Bamboo is a beautiful Japanese inspired hardpoint that offers many options for suspensions. We will explore how to secure the bamboo to your rig and then move into how to utilize a horizontal hardpoint vs. a single point suspension. Participants will learn how to manage suspension lines and discuss pitfalls and problems that can arise when tying on bamboo.
Prerequisites: A working chest harness and basic understanding of suspension
The Finish: Each Rope Tells a Story
A common practice is to join rope when more is needed and continue on. What if each rope was finished off and told it’s own story? Or what do we do with the extra rope when the tie is finished. We burn it! But how do we do it effectively so the tie is functional, and maintains visual appeal?
Prerequisites: Solid understanding of basic bondage and simple forms
Type: Hands On
Partial Suspensions: The Slow Unfolding of Beautiful Suffering
We will begin this class examining uplines, their variability and their management. We will then explore the beauty of suffering through partial suspensions. Partial suspensions expose vulnerability and erotic helplessness, impart beautiful physical and mental challenges for the bottom, and allow for close connection between partners.
