    Prerequisites: Didn't make it to the first course? No worries, you'll have a few weeks to brush up your two rope gote (tons of online videos to do this or come to an open lab and ask someone for help!). So prerequisites are knowledge of the two rope gote and it's frictions, and a non-collapsible single column!

    Join us for our first Casual Friday Play and Social at Studio Friction.

    This is an open invite to come and be casually social and play. We won't have much more than some water and fruit around to munch on and we're only open 8 to midnight.

    We don't expect you to dress up but you can. We don't expect you to do rope, but you can. We do expect you to come hang out and play in any way that fits inside our code of conduct...

    So that mean you can come do electricity, wax, impact, bondage, knives, whips, or whatever you want really.

    We know we don't have all the tables and crosses that many people expect in a dungeon - but we have benches and vinyl couches and we have walls with points that you can connect chain or rope to.

    Be sure to check out our code of conduct on the website.
