Beginning 25 years ago with a mix of flea market handcuffs, bathrobe belts and neck ties, knot_head has always loved bondage. For him it IS about the simple, strict, positional bondage, and “what happens once she’s tied”, challenging predicaments being his favorite. Although he began with Japanese style rope, he’s since gravitated to the strict, clean, efficient, Western style of riggers like Jay Edwards, Matt Williams, Lew Rubens and Claire Adams. He still loves learning all sorts of tips, ties and tricks, and will eagerly attend almost any rope class or bondage workshop. In the past few years he caught the photography bug and loves showing kinksters how easy it can be to get a quality shot with their gear, in almost any setting. His schtick is to make bondage (and photography) simple and fun for anyone willing to learn.



Intermediate Predicament tie along and lab time

We’ll work through some basic engineering for safety and fun in discussion, and then as a group we’ll tie along a simple, diabolical, (almost) safe neck rope to crotch rope, partial suspension predicament. This tie is designed for a female bottom, on a simple chain point (doesn’t need a frame). It’s also engineered to fail in a safe direction. It’s a fun tie for the couple to play in and can be adjusted both for intensity and for most physical limitations. Time permitting we’ll lab out YOUR ideas, and see where we could tweak and engineer in an acceptable level of safety.

Prerequisites: If you’re going to tie along, a basic suspension skill level, and knowledge of your partner and how to tune to suit them. Bring YOUR suspendable chest harness or TK, and “futo ” or frogged leg, we’ll use them.

Showing you NOT the ropes… Layering and Mixed Media Bondage

Yes, there IS  bondage that doesn’t involve rope.

Explore and lab time with some other fun bondage mediums.  Leather straps, duct tape, chains, handcuffs, zip ties, electrical tape, pantyhose, … speaker wire? We’ll talk safety considerations, advantages and disadvantages of some common alternatives to rope.  We’ll lab out some ties and tricks you can’t do with rope, and even a fun hood / armbinder combo from a single pair of pantyhose. We’ll discuss and demo some “layers”, things like hoods, mitts, gags, ballet boots, and how they effect play, safety and aesthetic. Pantyhose, zip ties and tape provided by the event.  Come on out and get some inspiration from outside the box(tie).
