About our Instructors:

Switchtext (He/Him/His)

Switchtext is a designer and a co-founder and creative director of Studio Friction. He is more interested in sensations and understanding the elements of rope bondage than mastering someone’s specific pattern. Switchtext has been tying for 14 years. He has learned so much in that time and enjoys knowing he has so much more to learn. 

Goddess_Sphinx (She, Her)

Goddess_Sphinx is an eclectic kinkster who maintains a deep love affair with rope bondage. She loves rope for the breadth of experiences she can have with it and bring to others. She strives to bring a deep presence and enthusiasm to each moment and enjoys seeking out new experiences. A fan of bondage and power dynamics, she brings to the table a strong knowledge of how bodies and minds work. Goddess_Sphinx continues to work towards achieving integration of her kinky self and revels in her journey.
