BroadCast: Beginning Rope Bondage

August 4 @ 7:00 pm

We welcome you to “The BroadCast.” Sanctuary’s monthly, live gathering for broadly “female-identified” people who are living and exploring; the lifestyle, swinging, polyam, consensual non-monogamy and other non-vanilla ways of being in the world.

This week: Beginner Rope Bondage for Sexy-Time and Partnered Play

You don’t need years of rope experience and tons of gear to have a hot/fun/giggly rope scene! In this class, MxBliss will share some of her ‘go-to’ ties when she just wants to fool around and connect with others in rope. Want to learn how to make your squiggle-bottom stay still? Expose the tingly bits of an intimate partner for love and other indoor sports? Take your submissive partner’s breath away (without actual breath play)? Or put your bestie in a hog-tie (as one does)?

We will go over a basic framework for negotiating rope, especially if you or your partner are new to it, and discuss some basic safety matters. MxBliss will demonstrate 2-3 (3 if time permits) quick and fun purpose-driven ties and some adjustments for various Top/bottom body-type differences. While each demo will be a tie along, we will try to reserve some time to lab and receive feedback from the instructor.

Please know how to tie a non-slipping single column and bring at least two hanks of rope (24-30ft.) and safety shears/cutter if you want to lab or tie along. If you don’t know how to tie a non-slipping single column you will be able to lab with a work around but will be advised not to use these ties (in the wild) without learning the basic single-column first. Here are two of my favorite tutorials: https://vimeo.com/143109618 (Shay w/ a larks head SC) and https://crash-restraint.com/ties/66 (Topologist’s Somerville Bowline).

Bio: Mx Bliss (she/they) is a joyful sadomasochist, sensation empath, consent enthusiast, rope switch, self suspender, and lifestyle quinkster (queer kinkster). They identify as Daddy AF, on both sides of the slash. Bliss is having the time of their life discovering all the ways to connect with BDSM and rope and is eager to share the joy. They co-facilitate AlternaRope, a celebration of diversity in rope and co-hosts the Friction pop-up events. She also produces the Jiffy Kink events. Both in vanilla and kink worlds, MxBliss frequently presents on negotiation, consent, and diversity/equity/inclusion. With some trepidation, she is starting to teach some rope classes. She loves all the feedback, especially the kind that will help her grow and have her intention better mirror the impact of her behavior/words.
