Log in


Studio Friction is a rope-centered, sex-positive, non-normative, safe & welcoming environment for learning, exploration, practice, play, and performance. We strive to create a place of safety, trust, freedom, and connection where you can open new awareness, develop mastery, and engage the body, mind, and emotions. Come co-create the future of rope artistry, craft, and play with us.

We want to make a space to incubate the future of the art of kinbaku, play at the intersection of rope and aerial art and create community. We are intentionally working to promote justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.


Studio Friction is a 501(c)(7) non-profit social club. All funds collected through membership dues and event entry go straight back to the studio. The studio is ran by a community elected board of directors and several volunteer committees.  Each person brings something special to the table. From extensive non-profit management experience, multiple years of business experience, solid rope experience, and deep knowledge of kink communities throughout Colorado and beyond. Click here to check out our current board members.


Studio Friction was founded by three people in the Denver community: Mary, Diana, and Nate. Between them, they had plenty of experience in rope, business, and the local community. They are performers, event attendees and organizers, teachers, business starters and owners, and creatives. We are forever grateful and indebted to their leadership and vision in starting this world class rope space.
