Classes I Teach

My Classes:

These are just general descriptions of the classes I teach. Every class is customized for venue and audience. Think of it as a menu, where you get to tell me exactly how you want the meal cooked, and what substitutions you might need.

These descriptions are for you, the event producer. Please DO NOT cut and paste these descriptions into your fliers or calendars. I will provide a more specific description after we’ve discussed the event specifics.

Please note:

I “teach to the room” and adjust the material during the class, going faster or slower as necessary.

In “hands-on” classes, all students receive individual instruction. For larger classes the instructor will be joined by a teaching assistant.

Generally I can bring loaner rope, and if the class is within driving range of my house (in San Francisco) I can bring floor pads.


Introduction to Japanese Rope Bondage
Level: Beginner/Repeatable as Intermediate
Pre-requisites: None
Lecture/Hands-on Lab

The instructor will explain both the “how,” but the “why” of great rope bondage, and demonstrate techniques that enhance many types of play, whether it be sensual, dominant, playful, sadistic, or any combination thereof.

Students will learn “hands-on” the basic building blocks that give Japanese bondage it’s distinctive look, and discover why these techniques are so well suited to natural fiber rope. Then students will learn “hands-on” how to put these basic techniques together to tie an elegant, sexy, and functional hogtie.

Suitable for rank beginners, but repeat students will come away with a stronger skill set and new ideas.

Manufacturing Consent – Rope for Coercion and Control
Level: All
Pre-requsites: None
Demo and Lecture

Lean Japanese style rope bondage techniques for abduction scenarios, takedowns, and forced positions. THIS CLASS IS NOT FOR EVERYONE: We will discuss roleplay scenarios involving date-rape, incest, and assaults by “strangers.” Through it all we will show how to play with these “hot buttons” within a framework of respect and trust.


Let’s Get it on: Japanese Rope Bondage as Foreplay
Level: All
Pre-requsites: None
Hands-on Lab/Demo(w/Optional Tie-along)

Students explore using the whole process of putting rope on a partner as a warm up to whatever the final love act might be. The first part of the class is hands’ on – students will learn and practice the only two knots you need to know for hot and erotic Japanese bondage. The second part of the class is a demonstration, but couples are invited to tie along.


Get Smart: Japanese Rope Bondage with Gadgets
Level: All
Pre-requsites: None
Lecture and Demo

The instructor will show students how to tie for and around dildos, plugs, eggs, hooks, and vibrators, including the A-Bomb of vibrators, the H*tachi Magic Wand. The class is a lecture and demonstration format designed to be friendly to singles (as well as couples) and those who are more comfortable watching and getting ideas rather than participating step-by-step.


Japanese Rope Bondage for Sadists (Hands’ On)
Level: Intermediate
Pre-requsites: None
Hand’s On

This class is for sadists (and their partners) who want to learn quick ties to augment their sadistic play, and those who want to learn more complex techniques that are sadistic on their own. The instructor will show ties that are good for positioning a bottom for play with other implements, as well as challenging ties that are sadistic on their own.


Japanese Rope Bondage for Sadists (Demo)
Level: All
Pre-requsites: None
Lecture and Demo

This class is for sadists (and their partners) who want to see quick ties to augment their sadistic play, and those who want to learn more complex techniques that are sadistic on their own. The instructor will show ties that are good for positioning a bottom for play with other implements, as well as ties that are sadistic on their own.


Shibari at any Size
This class subject to availability of models.
Level: Beginner
Pre-requsites: None
Hands-on

This class is formed around two important principals:

  1. A bottom does not need to be tiny to be tied well. Japanese rope bondage techniques work on people of all shapes and sizes!
  2. A top does not need to learn “regular” rope bondage before he or she learns Japanese rope bondage. The basic building blocks of Japanese rope bondage are actually simpler and safer than most “western” bondage techniques!

This is a bare basics class where we will teach all background and techniques in a non-judgemental and slow-paced setting. The instructor will show each top/bottom pair ties that work well for them.


A leg up: partial suspensions for complete sadists
Level: Beginner/Intermediate
Pre-requsites: None
Hands-on

This is a great class to take if you’ve already taken my intro class one or two times. However, this is an “AB” class, meaning that we will review everything that you need from my intro class. If you think you’ve forgotten everything from my intro class that’s OK, we will get you back up to speed.

Couples and singles are both welcome. Singles need to be willing to both tie and be tied.

The ties you will learn in this class are designed to cause erotic pain and/or suffering.


Need for Speed: Techniques for Lightning Quick Suspensions
Level: Intermediate
Pre-requsites: At least one beginner Japanese style bondage class
Hands-on

This class focuses on the traditional chest-and-arm harness (often referred to as the Takate-kote) and a simple but fast single limb tie. Combined, they make a number of beautiful and elegant partial suspensions. Those familiar with full suspensions will easily be able to incorporate these ties into their own work.


Cratelab – Confined Spaces for Erotic Play
Level: All
Play Lab

NOTE: This class can only be offered if the host is willing to arrange for the transport and moving of the crates and chests.

In this hands’-on (butts-in?) class participants will be able to use a number of confined spaces including:

  • Mil-spec plywood crate
  • Teak chest
  • Lexan (clear plastic) box
  • Reinforced Ikea armoire

Who’s your Mummy? – Mummification for fun
Level: All
Pre-requsites: none

This is a hands on workshop that will let the students use a variety of mummification items, with the goal of letting each student find a technique and material that speaks to them. We play with:

  • Vet Wrap
  • Grocery Store Plastic Wrap

  • Oodles of rope

This class is lighthearted and fun for all bondage freaks.


Hey Fuckball! – Mummification for Objectification and Humiliation
This class subject to availability of models.
Level: All
Pre-requsites: none
Demo/Lecture

This class explores the darker side of mumification. The instructor will show techniques for objectification and humiliation, including sexplay and forniphilia (human furniture.) Depending on setting and model availability, participants in the class may be invited to interact with the demo bottom, up to and including a gang bang. (We encourage people without attached penisies to bring a strap-on.)
