Chingón Cuerdas and Sybil

(He/him and They/them)

The kinkster formerly known as –Ronin–; Chingón Cuerdas is Chicago based Kinbaku educator and performer. Beginning his kink journey in 2013 has quickly developed an immense passion for rope bondage and rough body play. He enjoys creating scenes that are both physically and mentally engaging using his personal/educational background and drive for learning about topics on anatomy, sports science, and martial arts. He has been part of various local rope education initiatives such as Tying by Twilight, Chicago Rope, and Second City Kinbaku. Having also presented and performed at various events such as Ropecraft, Kinky Kollege, B.A.N.K., and Snowbound. His style is centered around efficiency, body mechanics, and engagement; breaking down concepts into digestible logics and exercises for students to apply to their own practice.

Sybil (They/them) found the Chicago kink scene in 2010 and has been a lover of rope and rough body play ever since. They enjoy kink as a medium for connection, communication with a partner, and strenuous play as a means to let go and be in the present moment. Their perspective on bottoming has been influenced by their experience as a yoga practitioner. They have found that the mental practice of yoga teaches you to stay and endure through breathing and the physical practice prepares your body for the strenuous positions imposed by rope. They are always looking for ways to ways to step up their bottoming game and are happy to be able to share their experience so you can too.
