      GoodFoxy (she/they)

      GoodFoxy (she/they) has been in love with shibari for about 4 years. She was thankfully introduced to it as a bottom by a friend and after taking curriculum classes with the intention of bottoming, they soon found a desire to learn to tie quickly becoming clear. They identify as a queer rope switch. Their tying style leans heavily into sensual, focused, connected (umm..sometimes sexy) rope with interwoven elements of sadism, playfulness, and creativity.

      Smitten (she/her)

      Smitten identifies as a queer, kinky, polyam, service, top-leaning rope switch. Smitten has been immersed in the Denver kink and rope community since 2017. She is a perpetual rope student and has been a rope educator, pretty much since she tied her first single column.
