Bondage for Beginners

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, safewords, 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.
