Studio Friction's Rope Bondage Series:

Beginner 1

This course is the right place to start.

It is perfect if you are brand new to rope, interested, & excited to jump in!


  • When: Thursdays 7-9pm. Aug 4-25
  • Studio friction membership is required to attend curriculum courses to enable us to maintain our 501(c)7 non-profit status. If you're not a member but interested in attending you can purchase a one-month membership for $10. Learn more by clicking here.
  • Course price is per tying pair. You must provide your own partner. Costs: Bound members = $100, Tied members = $125, Wrapped members = $150.
  • You must provide your own rope (2 to 4 lengths of ~30 feet) although rope will be available to purchase from the studio during your first class.


    This series is meant to give you the basics to step into using rope bondage at home safely, as well as be able to learn other floor-based topics in outside classes. Please note that both a partner and rope are required. Rope can be purchased at the studio, as needed.

    1. Identify the benefits and drawbacks to various types of rope
    2. Perform at least three different types of rope safety checks in appropriate situations

    2 to 4 - 30' lengths of rope


    Brad/MrNeve (he/him)

    Brad (FetLife: MrNeve) is a rope addict, a giggling sadist, and a passionate educator. He began his kink journey in the Nashville, TN area over 10 years ago, where he first found a love for impact play, D/s dynamics, and the curiosity to always try something new. He firmly believes rope is for everybody (and every body). Consent, negotiation, and safer play for newcomers are all topics that he loves. When he isn't tying, you'll find him hiking, cooking, or spending time with his dogs Zero and Nala.

    Senna (she/her)

    Senna is an avid self suspender, rope switch, and impact switch. A 21 year veteran of the kink community, Senna believes you can not teach unless you continue to learn. She is and will continue to be a student as well as an educator with a passion for helping beginners. Senna puts a heavy focus on radical honesty, open communication, and consent. In real life, she is an author, table top player, board gamer, and hiker. She talks far too much about Star Wars and Tolkien.
