Max and Lover's Lair Present 4mm Scenes - More Fun, Less Rope

This event has passed.

Max is rarely without a piece of 4mm rope. Look in his pocket, his briefcase, his glove box… It’s easy to carry, easy to hide, easy to use.

4mm rope is well suited for quick, brutal scenes - hojo ties, strenuous partial suspensions, toe ties. It’s equally appropriate for more gentle moments - a collar and lead, a hair tie, a blindfold. With a little practice you can accomplish so much with so little.

This workshop focuses on how to use a piece or two of 4mm to accomplish your objectives, whatever they are. 4mm bondage is quick, elegant, and fiendishly effective. We’ll discuss, demo and practice a range of techniques - how to hank and carry your 4mm, how to deploy it, and how to use it to be strenuous, kind, or artistic. After some practice you may find yourself wondering why you always carry that heavy rope bag.

We’ll also cover the unique safety considerations for 4mm scenes, and there will be a number of hot demos. By the end of the workshop you'll be able to competently use your 4mm.

Workshop format

There'll be lots of hot demos and some lecture, but most of this workshop is hands-on, so you'll have lots of time to have fun and develop your skills. 

If you can, come with a practice partner. If you don't have a partner, come anyway and we'll make sure you get a chance to practice the basic techniques. Rope Bottoms: this is your chance to meet some rope tops! Come learn and get tied up.

If you want to practice during the workshop, please have the following at hand:

  • (2) 15-20 foot pieces of 4mm hemp

As always, the emphasis is on learning and having fun.

Who should attend?

No prior knowledge of bondage or knots is assumed for this class - it's perfectly appropriate for beginners. If you've already done some bondage it's a great way to tune up your technique.

This workshop assumes no previous BDSM experience and is appropriate for all genders, all orientations, and for both tops and bottoms.


Attendees will receive an illustrated handout full of principles, safety information, basic technique, and plenty of pictures and instruction to help you practice the knots and ties in this workshop.
