Virtual Rope 101 Class
with Matt and Athena
Rope can be a highly technical form of play. Sometimes it can become the sole point of a scene or play session. Shosty9 firmly believes that rope is to enhance the scene, not visa versa. It needs to be practiced in a way that does not distract from the connection between partners.
In this class we will explore this idea using a single column tie and a simple chest harness. Other fundamental topics such as consent and safety will also be covered.
No previous experience is necessary. We will use at least one 30' foot length of rope.
Matt / @Shosty9
Matt has been part of the Denver kink and rope communities for over a year. He is a top whose focus is connection with partners. He also enjoys getting maximal effect from simple implements. Interests include rope, primal play, and knifes. Major teachers are @CreativeMayhem and @Strawberrypulp.

Since discovering kink six years ago, athena has rounded out her vanilla life by exploring power exchange, giggly masochism, and plenty of time in rope. A highly sensitive rope slut with an insatiable appetite for novelty, she has had the pleasure of discovering the many different modalities rope has to offer with trusted and intimate partners.
A consent enthusiast, relational junkie, and liberal feminist killjoy, athena has shared her passion with others while teaching about rope, power dynamics, sexuality, feminism, kink, and personal transformation in many cities across the United States.
