    Studio Friction and Whiskey Ginger are proud to present a weekend of rope classes for Colorado taught by MisterBacon. This weekend of rope is ideal for all levels of rope experience and includes four classes that can be taken separately or get a weekend pass and save a little money!

    So who is MisterBacon anyway?

    MisterBacon (he/him/his) is a switch from Los Angeles. He began his rope education in 2013. He is an active member of the Devil Mask Society rope family. He currently teaches a monthly introductory rope bondage class in Culver City, CA, and has been privileged to be able to teach in Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Atlanta. Additionally, he has performed in Los Angeles and at the Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco.

    Known primarily for being a jerk with rope and for his elaborate negotiation style, MisterBacon strives to create scenes and classes that will allow others to feel his enjoyment of rope. Using his experience as a rope top and bottom, he aims to help people empathize with their partner as a way to improve their rope experience. Scenes are only as good as the interplay between all involved parties, so MisterBacon wants his partners and students to see the importance of getting to know the person they’re tying with beyond just their list of do’s and don’ts. He has been described as a “gleeful sadist.”

    Awesome! Who is He Tying with?

    ----g---- (she/her) came to the scene after an awakening to the submissive and masochist sides of her identity. She instantly felt a sense of belonging with the kink community, but it wasn’t until she moved to Denver almost 3 years ago that she first was given an opportunity to experience the joy of suffering in rope. She is particularly drawn to its beauty and artistry, the physical and mental challenge of strenuous ties, and the power and trust exchange created with her partners. Some of her most memorable bondage experiences include performing at the Sanctuary’s Ropegasm with PandoraDreams, the BED Denver opening party with ThisDude and demo bottoming for Barkas at his intensive here in Denver.

    And What Classes Are Being Taught?

    A huge thank you to everyone who came out on Friday to make the opening of Studio Friction such a wonderful event. 

    We were especially thrilled to see the size and diversity of the crowd. Studio Friction is looking forward to hosting sponsored and partner based events and we loved the response and interest that was communicated.

    We can't wait to finish up the private playroom and the loft - where there will be a viewing area into the main space, an intimate playspace and a quiet aftercare area.

    Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

    Well... It is over 3,000 square feet!

    We are diligently working to transform every inch of that into Studio Friction and create a space for our community to learn, experience, grow, enjoy, and love! 

    Click on the "JOIN" tab above to sign up for your monthly (or yearly) membership and be there at the beginning! This is going to be a space like none other in the state (and possibly the country!) and we can't wait to share it with you.

    We are still looking for help with the transformation, please contact Mary at for more information. We need help big and small so don't worry about experience!

    We will be announcing our Grand Opening Party soon so make sure to follow us on Instagram, Facebook, or Fetlife and check back here often!

    Much love from you Studio Friction Board!

    Here is a sneak peek of our progress!

    We are happy to announce that parking will not be an issue at our space because it has a gated parking lot as park of the building! Below is an aerial view of the space, which shows the expansive parking lot!

    I want to thank everyone who has signed up to volunteer! We are still looking for more people to help with the work we are doing to create the space. We have tasks big and small and someone is working on the space at anytime durning the day and evenings! Send a note to Mary at if you can help in any way!

    Thanks everyone! We are moving along and hope to be opened soon!

    The Studio Friction Team!

    We toasted our space the night we signed the lease!

    The space is a standalone building so no need to worry about neighbors! We started demo today and know it's going to be a long road to open but we are committed to making sure this space is like no other in town! 

    We are definetly looking for volunteers! If you have experience in construction please reach out, if you want to help paint and clean reach out as well! We will compensate everyone who helps with class/party passes and for those willing to give more time we are willing to discuss the type of compensation you are looking for! Feel free to email myself (Diana Yum Yum) at or Mary at and keep an eye out on the website for work days!

    Thank you for making this happen! We are truly an amazing community!
