Rope Torture – The way of the Sadist

Date: Sunday June 27th, 2010
Time: 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Where: The Erotic Heritage Museum
Cost: $25 per person

About This Class

For hundreds of years the world has given us stories and images of capture and torture with rope bondage. We in the BDSM lifestyle often play around with these images, these stories and these ties, and use them in our erotic life. But do we hold true to the original intent of rope bondage, or do we dance around it?

We see many images of erotic bondage today, but have we lost the connection to the torture of rope bondage that holds that dangerous appeal that attracted us to it to begin with

This class explores the theory of rope bondage as a scene unto itself, using rope in the way it has been intended for hundreds of years, as rough capture and restraint as well as a use for the application of pain to the body.

We will discuss, demonstrate and practice using rope to create Pain to purify the body and the mind, creating catharsis. Please bring some hemp/jute rope in 4mm-6mm diameter for the hands on portion. Rope will be for sale at the class.
