Spanktuary Education Series presents: Intro to Rope For Impact Play with KnottyWordz and BabyLuck!
If you’re curious about rope and wondering where to start, or looking for safe ways to incorporate rope bondage into your impact scenes, COME TO THIS CLASS!
KnottyWordz and BabyLuck will help introduce you to the world of rope bondage by covering rope safety, the different types and styles of rope, how to tie a single column tie (the foundational tie for most rope bondage), exercises for improving your rope handling, and what to expect from your first rope scene from a bottom’s perspective. They will then teach a few simple ties and techniques to tie down your partner for impact play that you can use later in the evening! This is a great class for those new to rope and those who simply wish to expand their skills.
It is recommended that you bring a few hanks of 15m and/or 30m rope. A limited supply of loaner rope will be available.
