The Leather Man continues its series of informative, fun and provocative fetish workshops open to all genders, orientations and experience levels with "Tying It All Together: Connecting Through Rope Bondage" presented by Eric Pride.|
There are lots of great rope bondage classes out there teaching all sorts of fancy and beautiful ties, intricate knots, daunting suspension scenes, and detailed techniques. This isn't one of them.
Instead, in this workshop we explore rope bondage as a medium for dynamic scenes, play, and connection. We teach a few simple ties and basic bondage safety to serve as the foundation for building scenarios ranging from the playful and sensual to the strict and severe.
We will discuss and demonstrate how to use bondage for intimacy and sex, bondage for power-play, bondage for secret public thrills, bondage for fun role play, and bondage for decadent teasing and torture.
At the heart of it all, it is about creating that special connection and sexy energy with your partners and using the inherent contrast in restraint to set your imaginations and passions free.
We encourage you to bring your own rope for hands-on exploration (at least two pieces of rope, each approximately 15-20 feet long). Should you not have your own, there will be rope available for you to purchase before the workshop and take home with you to use with your partners.
This workshop is interactive and suitable for all experience levels.
Seats are limited to 20 participants so get your tickets early. General Admission tickets cost $10 each.
Each participant will receive a $10 Gift Card from The Leather Man that can be used any time for any in-store purchase.
Free refreshments are provided in a stimulating environment filled with erotic toys and fetish gear. Come early to browse and claim your seats.
Must be over 18 years old to attend this workshop and shop with us. For everyone's comfort and privacy, cameras, mobile phones, tablets and laptops are not allowed.
The store will close to the public at 8:00 PM. Admission will not be possible once the workshop begins so plan to arrive ahead of time.
We look forward to seeing you!
