Denver Rope Bite Presents:

Hip Harness Medley Class

with Goddess_Sphinx / GoodFoxy and Shosty9 / Athena



Note: you must register and pay online, no admittance or registration at the door 

About the class:

This unique class will give you the opportunity to learn two hip harness patterns in one session. While each of these harnesses is designed to be suspendible they are also very useful for ground ties. We will split the class in half and take turns at each station. 

Hip harnesses are one of the most valuable and versatile tools when suspending. They can support most or all of a person's weight and can act as an easy escape route if things start going wrong. They are fundamental to many sequences and are a foundational building block for those who are learning.

Shosty9 and Athena will teach the bones and rope hip harness:

This is a solid hip harness many of us at SF use regularly, it suspends really well when properly tensioned, and many find it very sustainable for long periods. In this class Ma will be teaching the bones and rope hip harness. It is a waist loading harness that is extremely stable. It holds up well to load from different directions while being comfortable and a simpler pattern. It requires about 2 full lengths to tie. 

This pattern originated with Fred Hatt and Anna Bones of Anatomie Studios in London

Goddess_Sphinx and GoodFoxy will teach the peach hip harness:

This pattern originated with Tifereth who developed it to load the waist and thighs and not just the hips. It incorporates a smart way to tension the harness with deflection. It also makes your ass look really great. 


Basic knowledge of a single column tie and basic frictions will help you follow along with the class, but you may be able to gather these as you go.


Every tying pair will need about 3-4 (8 meter or similar) lengths of rope in good condition, and a cutting implement. An aftercare blanket and/or pillow is optional but nice to have.
