      Torture Rope: How Bad Do You Want It?

      With the covid restrictions level orange in effect Studio Friction is open with masks and limited capacity. Virtual classes are a great way to stay connected and stay learning. Once registered you will receive the Zoom meeting link.

      Class Description:

      Pick your poison in this torture rope class featuring exercises designed to build the bond between rope partners and break down the walls between pleasure and pain. 

      We will explore the areas of the body that hold the "ouch" factor, and teach simple and safe, but powerful ties and patterns to add in an element of torture. 

      All of the ties that we teach can be tied on yourself or a partner. We will be facilitating a guided negotiation between tying partners during the class to help ensure the safety and comfort of class participants. 

      2-3 lengths of rope recommended. Bonus if one of the pieces is paracord, or if you bring Legos.

      About our Presenters:

      Algalon (he/him/his) and Chaos (she/her/hers) met several years ago when they were paired up at a rope class in Denver, and have lived happily ever after since. With a focus on shibari advocacy and education, they bring a fun and playful energy to their classes. Their methodology places great emphasis on the fact the rope is a tool used to communicate your emotions, your intention, and your feelings toward your partner. They believe that the power of good communication is key to developing strong rope partnerships and intimacy.

        INTRO TO BAMBOO SUSPENSION

        with pandoradreams and athena

        Cost: $40/pair for BOUND and TIED members - $50/pair for WRAPPED members 

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

        About the class:

        In this class, pandoradreams will walk through the basics of tying to overhead bamboo as a hard point, instead of a traditional single point. Tying to bamboo is different and has its own nuances, so the differences between tying to bamboo and tying to a single point will be discussed.  Safety considerations will also be discussed, as there are some safety considerations to keep in mind while performing bamboo suspensions.  Following this discussion, pandoradreams will instruct a tie off that is designed more specifically for bamboo suspension, and this tie off will be practiced by students. Following this, two suspensions will be demonstrated that highlight some of the differences between tying to bamboo vs. a single point. The first will be a partial suspension that will allow for use of the newly instructed tie off, as well as give the rigger an opportunity to discover some of the differences of tying on bamboo. It will also give the person being tied an opportunity to experience the different sensations of a bamboo suspension. The second suspension will be a full suspension that will give the rigger the chance to play with different body positions on the bamboo, and more practice with tie offs. The person being tied will be able to experience the different ways a bamboo suspension affects their body, and will give them the opportunity to experiment with micro adjustments with their body to better manage these types of suspension.  Throughout this class, Athena will offer valuable information for persons being tied in respect to bamboo suspensions, including how to manage breathing, the different body sensations of a bamboo suspension, and other bottoming-related topics as they arise. 


        Bamboo hard points will be provided.  Riggers *must* provide their own safety shears/knife/cutting implement. 


        Prerequisites:

        Rigger: knowledge of a suspension worthy 2 rope TK or arms free chest harness (Butterfly harness, leafless rose, etc), understanding of tension in ties, familiarity with suspension line tie offs, and non-collapsible single column ties.  Prior static suspension experience is strongly preferred. 

        Bottom: clear and thorough communication skills, strong body awareness in rope (particularly in suspension), ability to adjust in rope while suspended, and ability to manage potentially stressful positions while suspended. Previous static suspension experience preferred but not required. 


        Equipment:

        Every tying pair will need about 10-12 lengths of rope in good condition (however many you need for suspension, plus a couple more), suspension point hardware (carabiners, rigging plate, or ring), and a cutting implement. At least one extra carabiner is strongly recommended. An aftercare blanket and/or pillow is optional but nice to have.

        About our instructors:

        pandoradreams

        She / Her

        pandoradreams has been a member of the Denver kink community for 8 years. During this time, she has been involved as education coordinator for Denver Rope Bite and education coordinator/producer of Rope in the Rockies, and is an enthusiastic proponent of high quality, comprehensive education. She has experience with teaching rope, performing with rope, and rope photography, mainly in the Denver area. Her background as a rope bottom and her career in healthcare add to the comprehensive nature of her rope classes as she strives to include information that benefits both bottom and rigger.

        Athena / ghost_sonata

        (She, Her)

        Since discovering kink six years ago, athena has rounded out her vanilla life by exploring power exchange, giggly masochism, and plenty of time in rope. A highly sensitive rope slut with an insatiable appetite for novelty, she has had the pleasure of discovering the many different modalities rope has to offer with trusted and intimate partners. 

        A consent enthusiast, relational junkie, and liberal feminist killjoy, athena has shared her passion with others while teaching about rope, power dynamics, sexuality, feminism, kink, and personal transformation in many cities across the United States.

          About our Instructors:

          @TheDude 

          (He/Him)

          TheDude  has been tying for... a long time. Thanks to the opportunities provided by Denver Rope Bite and Studio Friction's efforts, he has had some amazing opportunities to learn from presenters around the globe. Pre-Covid he could often be found at parties and events having fun scenes, teaching and occasionally performing. These days he is focusing on play at home but still trying to build community through smaller, more focused, educational opportunities. 

          @BetwixtBlushes 

          (She/Her)

          BetwixtBlushes is another Denver scene regular. She was mostly excited by the prospect to get in the air multiple times...just to shake off the rust. But really, she is looking forward to discussing communication, processing, and other skills with everyone.

          About our instructors:

          DVSRopeGirl

          (she/her/hers)

          DVSRopeGirl fell into ropes at a vanilla fetish ball over ten years ago, which led to a wide array of experiences in rope from bottoming to topping, to just doing ridiculous stuff. She periodically disappears from the scene, but always misses the great people in the community and finds herself back in touch with this part of herself.  Rope is a great way to challenge yourself and others and to find those ah ha moments you didn't know you were looking for but curiously discovered.

          Cumulus_Nimbus

          (he/him/his)

          Cumulus_Nimbus is an ever exploring sub that likes to keep trying new things.  He got a taste for self suspension and rope bondage and developed an appreciation for it as well as an ambitious drive for continued exploration in rope. Yoni additionally aids in creative pursuits in making art which showcases masculine submission with recent focuses in rope.

                INTRO TO BAMBOO SUSPENSION

                with pandoradreams and athena


                2nd class added due to demand

                Cost: $40/pair for BOUND and TIED members - $50/pair for WRAPPED members 

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

                About the class:

                In this class, pandoradreams will walk through the basics of tying to overhead bamboo as a hard point, instead of a traditional single point. Tying to bamboo is different and has its own nuances, so the differences between tying to bamboo and tying to a single point will be discussed.  Safety considerations will also be discussed, as there are some safety considerations to keep in mind while performing bamboo suspensions.  Following this discussion, pandoradreams will instruct a tie off that is designed more specifically for bamboo suspension, and this tie off will be practiced by students. Following this, two suspensions will be demonstrated that highlight some of the differences between tying to bamboo vs. a single point. The first will be a partial suspension that will allow for use of the newly instructed tie off, as well as give the rigger an opportunity to discover some of the differences of tying on bamboo. It will also give the person being tied an opportunity to experience the different sensations of a bamboo suspension. The second suspension will be a full suspension that will give the rigger the chance to play with different body positions on the bamboo, and more practice with tie offs. The person being tied will be able to experience the different ways a bamboo suspension affects their body, and will give them the opportunity to experiment with micro adjustments with their body to better manage these types of suspension.  Throughout this class, Athena will offer valuable information for persons being tied in respect to bamboo suspensions, including how to manage breathing, the different body sensations of a bamboo suspension, and other bottoming-related topics as they arise. 


                Bamboo hard points will be provided.  Riggers *must* provide their own safety shears/knife/cutting implement. 


                Prerequisites:

                Rigger: knowledge of a suspension worthy 2 rope TK or arms free chest harness (Butterfly harness, leafless rose, etc), understanding of tension in ties, familiarity with suspension line tie offs, and non-collapsible single column ties.  Prior static suspension experience is strongly preferred. 

                Bottom: clear and thorough communication skills, strong body awareness in rope (particularly in suspension), ability to adjust in rope while suspended, and ability to manage potentially stressful positions while suspended. Previous static suspension experience preferred but not required. 


                Equipment:

                Every tying pair will need about 10-12 lengths of rope in good condition (however many you need for suspension, plus a couple more), suspension point hardware (carabiners, rigging plate, or ring), and a cutting implement. At least one extra carabiner is strongly recommended. An aftercare blanket and/or pillow is optional but nice to have.

                pandoradreams has been a member of the Denver kink community for 8 years. During this time, she has been involved as education coordinator for Denver Rope Bite and education coordinator/producer of Rope in the Rockies, and is an enthusiastic proponent of high quality, comprehensive education. She has experience with teaching rope, performing with rope, and rope photography, mainly in the Denver area. Her background as a rope bottom and her career in healthcare add to the comprehensive nature of her rope classes as she strives to include information that benefits both bottom and rigger.

                Since discovering kink six years ago, athena has rounded out her vanilla life by exploring power exchange, giggly masochism, and plenty of time in rope. A highly sensitive rope slut with an insatiable appetite for novelty, she has had the pleasure of discovering the many different modalities rope has to offer with trusted and intimate partners. 

                A consent enthusiast, relational junkie, and liberal feminist killjoy, athena has shared her passion with others while teaching about rope, power dynamics, sexuality, feminism, kink, and personal transformation in many cities across the United States.
