Studio Friction's Rope Bondage Series:

Intermediate 1

So you know your 3 rope gote, some leg ties, and a few single columns... Time to start thinking about flying!

Mondays 6:00-8:00pm. Jan 29, Feb 5, 12, & 19.

(Please note Jan 22nd is skipped)

Price per tying pair: Bound = $100, Tied = $125, Wrapped = $150


    This course builds on the first 2 beginner courses and is the first in the intermediate level. During these four weeks, we will refine the structure and tension of our chest harnesses for suspension, gain an understanding of load line mechanics and safety, tie a mermaid harness that can be suspended, learn about directional suspensions including side, face-up, and face down, and ultimately tie a static suspension.


    Working knowledge of the three rope gote (TK), basic negotiation skills, 6-10 - 30' lengths of rope, 3-5 load rated carabiners, or a suspension ring.


            Thomas (he/him, fet: untiedbythomas)

            Thomas joined Studio Friction and the Denver Kink community in April of 2022 and has been obsessed ever since. A rope top and self suspender, Thomas has a deep love for all things Shibari, whether that be taking every class possible, learning a new harness for suspensions, or compulsively shopping for new rope. He believes no scene is finished until the last bit of rope is removed, putting extra emphasis on connection, body movement, and intimacy. Recently stepping into the world of teaching, he is so excited to give back to the community that has taught him so much and share all of the education he has absorbed along the way.

            Within the kink world, Thomas' interests include: grappling/wrestling, D/S dynamics, CNC play, and is willing to try anything at least 4 times. Outside of kink, Thomas can be found playing guitar, reading, training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, playing board games, walking his 2 dogs, and writing code. Thomas identifies as a cis, poly, het, white male and is constantly curious about human experiences different than his own.

            Marilyn (she/her, fet: _Marilyn_)

            Marilyn first entered the Denver rope community in 2019. After finishing the partnered curriculum in March 2020 (literally the Wednesday before Denver shut down!), Marilyn began self-tying as a way to maintain her rope skills. She quickly fell in love with the playful, energetic, and dynamic nature of it! She is happy to be back in Denver and to be exploring all that rope has to offer again, whether that's tying others, tying herself, or letting others tie her sometimes too.

            Marilyn identifies as a queer, polyamorous, kinky switch. She's passionate about relationship anarchy, arguing the semantics of language, and the value of building connections. She's excited to be engaging with the Denver rope community in a new, bigger way through teaching and curriculum development.

            Amanda (she/her, fet: clumsyslut)

            Amanda is a queer woman with a passion for both teaching and performing in rope. She entered the Denver rope scene in early 2017, as a bottom with zero intention of becoming a rigger. She soon realized that understanding how the ties work would enhance her capabilities as a bottom and improve communication with the people who tied her, so she dove into learning self-suspension. While Amanda occasionally ties others, she has a strong love of the challenge and sense of empowerment she gets as the person in the rope. As an instructor, Amanda is driven by a genuine passion for helping others discover their "why," empowering fellow bottoms, and fostering an atmosphere where ALL people who are interested in rope feel valued and celebrated, not just included.

            Outside of rope, Amanda is a mental health professional, mountain-lover, and mom to two “grumpy old lady” cats. She loves coffee, being small, and snuggling with her husband (MumbleTie) and friends. Introverted, but willing to discuss cats, rope, and bad jokes.
