Please New York - Bound for Pleasure - Introductory Rope Bondage class

Tickets Available Here
Single $30, Couples $58

Are you interested in playing with teasing and restraint while holding your partner captive? Or perhaps you'd like to struggle for freedom yourself? Rope bondage can add some kink to your fantasy, or can be practiced as an art form all its own. Please is excited to offer this hands-on workshop for novices who are interested in learning and practicing the basic ties of rope bondage.

Participants will start with basic rope safety, practice wrist and ankle ties, and view a demonstration of more elaborate torso harnesses. Couples are welcome to come together; if you attend as an individual, be prepared to work with another individual rope partner or assistant. Everyone is encouraged to tie and be tied, so please be willing to play both roles with your workshop partner! Participants will remain fully clothed throughout the class, so dress in comfortable clothing, like you would to a yoga class. Safety and consent are our first priority and will be discussed at the beginning of the class with handouts on BDSM protocol.

*A nylon & hemp rope starter kit is available for purchase AND is needed for class! Our kit contains 1 length of 30' rope, 2 lengths of 10' rope, and 1 pair of curbed-tip safety scissors for 35% off retail price. Please contact us to let us know in advance if you already have your own kit.
