Decoding Rope Bondage Negotiation with Cannon

Decoding Rope Bondage Negotiation with Cannon

Whether you’re looking to tie (or be tied) for the first time, or you’re a veteran rope practitioner with hundreds of bondage scenes under your belt, this class is for you. In this lecture and discussion-based workshop, we will explore ways of using and interpreting language to better negotiate for what we’re really looking for in a rope bondage scene, as well as how to better meet our partners’ needs, wants and desires. We will explore ways to help experienced players feel less like service techs and rope mannequins, and help brand new players get their first taste of rope in a way that honors their consent, and keeps them coming back for more.

Rope Bondage Performance with Cannon

While there’s no single “right” way to do rope bondage performance, this class presents one process for designing shows that can work well for a variety of settings and audiences.

This class is intended for experienced rope practitioners who are looking for ways to improve their creative process, and will also offer practical performance advice for both on and off the stage.

A lecture will be followed by a participatory (non-tying) group exercise. Performance partners are encouraged to attend together if possible.
