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, “punch” rope technique, an intentionally painful calf binder pattern (with optional toe rope), and ideas for causing pain in freestyle tying.
For this class, tops will need to know how to tie a single column tie, and ideally some basic rope handling. You will also need to be willing to play with pain, both as a bottom or top. If you’ve been to any of our Beginner’s Classes, you will have the skills you need for this class, however you don’t have to have learnt from us before.
All events are subject to our Infection Prevention & Control rules, this includes booking in pairs with a pre-arranged tying partner.
