Bondage for Beginners

Sat, Jan 18 from 1pm - 4pm

This event has passed.

Interested in adding some bondage to your life, but not sure where to start? This comprehensive introductory class will introduce you to the basics of rope bondage and give you the skills you need to safely and confidently start exploring bondage on your own.

This is a bondage class rather than a knots class, so our focus is on teaching a small number of versatile techniques that you can use in all kinds of ways. To help you figure out what to do with them, we’ll have numerous fun demos of the techniques in action, along with suggestions for how to figure out what kind of kink works best for you.

We want you to focus on having fun with your partner rather than struggling to remember numerous different knots, so everything we teach has been carefully chosen to be easy to learn and use in the real world. As well as bondage techniques, we’ll cover the basics of kink and BDSM. We’ll talk about consent, safe-words, negotiation, and aftercare—everything you need to know in order to start getting up to mischief. 

We want to make sure you’re able to remember and use everything we teach you, so our extensive class handouts have step by step instructions for every technique in the class. With a student:instructor ratio of 6:1, you’ll get plenty of individualized attention to make sure you get the most out of the class.

Important details:

  • This introductory class has no prerequisites.
  • If you have your own rope, you should bring it with you. If you don’t, we have practice rope that you can use during class. We’ll cover what to consider when shopping for rope and will have samples of different types of rope for you to try out.
  • You can attend on your own, but it’s more fun if you bring a partner.
  • All sexes, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations welcome and celebrated.
  • No late entry will be allowed due to the intimate nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time.
  • Open to all 18+
  • Water available. Please bring your own bottle or cup.
  • Attendance is limited to 24 people
  • Questions may be directed to: education@pan-eros.org
