I’m teaching two classes at my studio in Bernal Heights om Mar 17:
At 2PM a 2-hr Intermediate class: ”Chest/Arm Harness: Technique and Technology” focusing on a 3-rope chest and arm harness (Takata-kote or 3TK fpr short) that is extremely sturdy and great for suspension.
Feel like you’re not ready quite yet for an intermediate class? At 12:30PM, I’ll be teaching a “brush-up” class, that will get you ready for the main class.
* We ask that couples include one top (tie-er) and one bottom (tie-ee) and do not switch during the class.
* Tops should have attended at least one of my classes in the last two years, or attend the brushup class at 12:30.
* Rope will be provided
* Bottoms need to be able to fold their arms behind their back in a “box” position, with forearms flat against each-other.
* Bottoms should wear tight, non-restrictive clothing or be comfortable being naked.
Spots are very limited!
This event is SOLD OUT. Email email@example.com to get on the waitlist.

How about a class for Valentine’s Day? OK! Let’s do it at my favorite Bay Area Dungeon, The Looking Glass! When? 2-4PM on Feb. 3. Awesome!
Just in time for Valentines’ Day! Mike West presents an all new class exploring Japanese Rope Bondage as a tool for deep communication with a romantic partner. Students will see the “caressing” style of playing with rope, and discuss ways to makes scenes fluid and romantic. Mike will present a chest harness and a limb tie with a focus on technique rather han technology. This class is great for beginners who have little experience with any rope bondage, as well as experienced riggers who would like to explore the more seductive and sensual side of rope bondage. Presented in a demo/lab format, singles can watch, and couples can tie along.
Mike will bring practice rope, students who wish to bring their own should have 3-5 lengths of natural fiber (no nylon/poly) rope, 7-8m (25-30′) long, and 5-6mm (3/16-1/4″) thick. Participants who wish to be tied should wear flexible and close fitting but unobtrusive clothing, or just get naked. Students will tie on the floor, so Mike suggests a yoga mat or soft fluffy towel.

Friday Feb. 8 I’ll be performing in the lobby of the AMC Theater Building at 1000 Van Ness Ave. How crazy is that? Come down and see some art, have some wine and cheese, and watch me tie up a pretty girl or two.
It’s time for my yearly anti-holiday party!

George W. Bush once famously said that the French have no word for entrepreneur. Presented without comment: some rope I bought at a home improvement store in Japan.
Lena is a Muse. Illiterate men could write poems about her, and blind men could paint pictures of her, if they were so lucky as to hold her in their hands. To have her as the canvas and the brush, the poem and the pen, is truly amazing and, most of all, inspiring.

I like ‘em bad. Pierced and tattooed, with bright hair and makeup like warpaint. But sometimes an All-American Girl comes along and melts my heart. Photos by Nell, (c) 2012 Tied Out West
I caught Krysta just about a month before she left town, and I’m sure glad I did. I was a bit intimidated before we met, but she’s actually the sweetest thing. And she practically floats up into the air. All photos by G. A. B. (c)2012 Tied Out West
