WHY KNOT LOVE?

Looking for a hot way to increase intimacy and connection with your partner?  

This workshop isn’t just about rope typing techniques.  It’s about learning how to stay connected to your lover, read their desires and needs, and build a scene together that cultivates trust, passion, and connection.  It’s also about learning to embody relaxation, confidence, and awareness inside yourself.

The workshop will start with short open-hearted movement and meditation exercises to help you and your partner feel deeply connected. You will learn how to relax your bodies, open your hearts. and gather Qi (or life energy) from all around you. This provides a foundation for building intimacy and a more connected rope play experience.

You will learn rope safety fundamentals, consent, boundaries, and other considerations for both partners. You will learn ways to stay aware and communicate with your partner during the entire rope scene. This helps ensure that both partners feel safe, respected, and heard.

Edward will show fun “no knot” techniques that have a lot of possibilities with no need for technical knowledge. We will explore how the rope is simply a physical extension of the energy and connection that exists between you and your partner.

You will also learn several ties and knots that can be used as a foundation for many rope techniques and bondage positions. I will share ways to improvise the ties you perform to keep your partner guessing.  And we will keep a focus on maintaining and nurturing a continuous connection with your partner.

By the end of this workshop session both of you will have the skills necessary for fun, hot, safe, and connected rope play with endless possibilities!  No prior experience is necessary.  Singles will be paired with other willing singles.  Edward will have some hand-made, hand-conditioned jute bondage rope for use or sale at the workshop.  You can also bring your own or shop at Pure Pleasure before the class.

* Class size is limited so advance registration is recommended.
