Hit Me Up: Tie Me Down
Intermediate | Sadistic Floor Rope
You want to learn to be a better bully? This class explores several simple but sadistic floor-based predicaments of varying intensity, as well as several tips and tricks for how to cause (consensual) distress with our favorite medium, rope. These “quick and dirty” predicaments are just that–quick, simple, and sure to have your bottom sweating in seconds. We will also cover how to build a basic hog-tie / Gyaku Ebi, as well as a few pain-inducing rope-tricks.
This is a three hour, intensive style class. We will move through each activity quickly and cover a lot of content! The class will include ties fit for many different types of bodies, ranges of flexibility, and levels of masochism. If one activity isn’t feeling right for you or if you need a break, you’re encouraged to observe and rejoin on the next activity. Come prepared to nerd-out-–note taking supplies are encouraged.
All ties will be partnered! Solo attendees are welcomed and will be matched with a tying partner at the beginning of class.
What to bring: At least four bundles of rope, a cutting tool, and fabric to be used as a blindfold
All attendees require a ticket, whether you are coming solo or with a partner.
