Over four years and more than 3500 hours ago, ShesANatural’s journey began innocently in a sex club, suspended over an orgy bed, tied in a box tie, hip harness, and futomomo. It was her first time feeling rope touch her skin and it was the beginning of her love affair with Shibari.
Many hours of classroom instruction, numerous cons, intensives and privates from wonderful educators have added to who she is in rope, which describes is a blend of styles yet faithful to the Japanese origins.
As a top, ShesANatural brings her experiences as a bottom to influence her tying. Her partners are fortunate enough to know that she will never tie them into something that hasn’t been tied on to her at least once.
One could say that ShesANatural is a fanatic about rope with a strong desire for community building and bottoming education. She has performed at various events and attended NARIX (North American Rope Innovation Exchange). ShesANatural has taught with organizations such as Hitchin Bitches – PDX Chapter, Portland Rope Arts Group, Portland Leather Alliance, Close-In Munch Education and Acro Shibari. She has taught her classes and given private bottom coaching in Oregon, Washington, California, and Mexico. Conroy- and ShesANatural have also turned their home into a rope space for gatherings, classes, workshops, and intensives. The two of them, together with their rope family, give their combined experiences to the rope community, sharing their knowledge and sparking a passion for rope in those around them. She believes that if she can do this rope thing, then anyone can do this rope thing.
