Tickets are now on sale for our Rope for Pain Play class in October.
Rope is a great vehicle for pain play, and both the positions we tie people into, and the way we apply ropes can cause varying degrees of pain. Sometimes, pain is incidental to rope scenes, but at other times, pain is used intentionally (the Japanese word for scenes which use pain in this way are called semenawa, or torture/torment rope).
In this class, we will explore methods of causing pain using the principle of mindful intention – causing pain with precision, in the exact time/place that you intend.
Exercises will include: information about using pressure points both to move and hurt your partner, “punch” rope technique, an intentionally painful harness, and ideas for causing pain in freestyle tying.
For this class, riggers will need to know how to tie a single column tie, and ideally will know some basic rope handling. Rope bottoms should ideally have been in rope before, and should be able to communicate and identify their needs and boundaries. If you’ve been to any of our Beginner’s Classes, you will have the skills you need for this class. Check out our FAQs or email us if you’re not sure if you qualify
