Japanese Rope Bondage for Lovers! Sunday, Feb 3rd
Japanese Rope Bondage for Lovers!

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.

Mike West says, "I've been tying up girls and making them cry since I was 5 years old. Sometime in my late 20s, I decided to get organized about it. I've been giving private rope bondage lessons since 2002, and teaching larger groups since 2006. Currently, most of my creative energies have been directed towards my small, intimate Rope Grotto shows, my larger yearly Black Xmas parties, and my 'Month of Sundays' photography project.

Mike West hates writing about himself in the third person, so he continues, "When I discovered Japanese rope bondage, it spoke to me much louder than other forms, and when I finally got my hands on some good rope, I was hooked. Recently, I've had the amazing opportunity to study in Japan and Europe, and it has opened up my mind to just how beautiful and functional this practice can be."

"I like my bondage like I like my women: tough, fast, and a little bit crazy."

Mike lives in an underground bunker in San Francisco with his two cats.
