    Studio Friction is changing our membership program!

    Below is the Why, What, and How this effects you. These changes go into effect on April 1st, 2018.

    So the Why:

    We haven’t been very good about shouting out the fact that we are a 501(c)7 nonprofit social club but we are! Having this classification is what makes what we do possible where we are, and to keep this classification over 80% of our income needs to come form our members and with our current structure this is not happening. So, we are updating our membership levels to better incentivize you into becoming a member!

    So what’s changing?

    • WRAPPED membership prices are dropping from $10/month or $120/year to $5/month or $50/year.
      • This level get you entry into our events for the regular price door fee.
    • TIED membership prices are dropping from $35/month or $350/year to $25/month or $250/year.
      • This level will include your entry fee into all of our open labs and entry into our Monthly Play Party.
    • BOUND membership is staying the same at $65/month or $650/year.
      • This level gives members access to all regular Studio Friction monthly events and discounts on workshops, intensives, Intrigue Night, and other special Studio Friction events.
    • Guest pricing is going away completely.
      • This means that non-members must register for a membership (as low as $5 for a month) at their first event. This can be a one-month trial membership or can be setup as a recurring monthly membership.

    How does this effect you?

    • If you are not a member you’ll need to pay for your membership at the door when you come to your next event.
    • If you are not a member and want to pre-pay for an event you must sign up for a membership online first.
    • If you are a current member your perks are still the same. If you want to upgrade your membership to a higher level you can do so online or at the door when you come to your next event!

    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?

    Class 1 & 2 March 3rd: - Great for beginners!

    Class 1 @ 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM: Shibari Basics – Rope bondage play for everyone! - Learn the basics of rope bondage including what you need, how to negotiate, some basic ties, and how to observe your partner to creat different experiences in rope!

    Class 2 @ 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM: The Box Tie - The classic harness made easy! - Learn the classic and most recognizable tie in Shibari including where to place the wraps and other invaluable frictions!

    Class 3 & 4 March 4th - Great for all levels!

    Class 3 @10:00 AM - 12:30 PM: Tie Like You Fucking Mean It – Getting what you want out of your play! - Learn how to make scene negotiations sexy and fun!

    Class 4 @2:00 PM - 4:30 PM: Tie Like A Jerk - How to be sadistic for fun! - Learn so amazing sadistic rope ties!

    Ok, Ok This Sounds Amazing Where Can I Register?

    Register here for individual classes, day passes, or get the whole weekend pass! You can also find a more detailed class description there as well!

    Maybe You Still Have Some Questions?

    Feel free to contact Diana or Whiskey Ginger with any other questions you may have!
