TwistedCupcake

Bio

TwistedCupcake began his formal rope journey in the fall of 2012. He quickly realized that in order to obtain the ability to do the types of mean fucked up things he wanted to do in rope that he would have to deeply understand the basics of rope bondage. The geek in him also needed to know how and why those fundamentals worked the way they did in different situations. He actively began to seek out instruction from various rope tops he saw at events. As he progressed, he began to attend workshops, lessons, and intensives with various teachers from around the world.

He started seeing a lot of new people come into the rope community who went from doing basic ties to intermediate and advanced in a very short period of time. This concerned him as the components which make each tie work were overlooked for the sake of a pattern. This absence of the understanding seemed to not only affect the quality of the rope being done, but also created a multitude of rope tops who reached a plateau in their bondage and were unable to advance further.

Being an educator in his professional life, he wanted to help fill that void while giving back to the rope community he has gotten so much out of. Since beginning to share his knowledge in rope, he has performed at various events across the US and in Canada such as The Dallas Fetish Ball, MBE Toronto, The BED Launch Party, and others. He has also taught classes at multiple events including Beyond Vanilla, DFWBound, Erotic Rope Dallas, September Surrender, co-leader and teacher for the First Bight group, and others. He has also been a part of the education team for Bondage Expo Dallas since the second year of the con’s existence and currently serves as Chair of the Education Committee.

Fundamental Faux Pas

What to Bring: At least Four (4) 8m hanks of rope and a someone to tie/be tied by if desired
Hard Points Needed: None

Throughout my rope journey, I have noticed a commonality in pretty much every teacher I have had exposure to. They focused on the subtle changes that could be made to the fundamental components rather than the overall pattern they were teaching. In this class, we will explore how the fundamentals that we use in so many ties can be adjusted to make any tie cleaner, more stable, more effective, and prevent tension changes. Participants will leave with an understanding of how to use these techniques and advance their bondage in aspects of aesthetics, stability, sustainability, and enhance the sensation of being bound for their partners.

Sir Isaac Newton invented 3 Laws of Motion which set the physics world on fire and are still found to be as true today as they were when they were invented in 1686. These laws are applicable not only in the physical nature of what we do in bondage, but also in the emotional and spiritual realm as well. This class is not about physics or geometry in bondage, but about the motion of the human condition in bondage. How does a person react when things are done? How do we practice reading that? What do we do with that information once we have it? Along the way, we will cover and discuss the ways we can use those and our own body mechanics to increase the speed of our tying through the efficiencies and movements in reaction to the actions of ourselves, our partners, and the next path our rope is to take. There is no “one twue” answer but this class will delve into drills and practices which can be employed to help discover a variety of answers.
