Suspension is perhaps the ultimate bondage โ€“ exhilarating, dramatic, demanding, and dangerous.

This workshop covers "almost" suspension, where the person being tied stays on the floor but with a vertical line taking some of their weight.

You'll learn basic vertical-line techniques and will acquire some of the fundamental skills required for suspension bondage.

If you're already doing suspensions, this workshop will make you more thoughtful about your style and more confident with your technique.

The workshop covers concepts, equipment, knots useful for suspension, and a number of exciting positions - all with a constant regard for safety.

Much of the class will consist of hands-on exercises to help you get familiar with the material in a friendly, low-pressure environment. The emphasis is on learning, having fun, and building confidence.  Some of the practice is based on lifting your toy bag - go ahead and load it up to make it heavy.

If you can, come with a practice partner. If you don't have a partner, come anyway and we'll make sure you get a chance to practice the basic techniques. Rope Bottoms - this is your chance to meet some rope tops - come learn and get tied up!

This workshop assumes no previous bondage experience, and is appropriate for all genders and orientations. Please also consider this workshop if you're already doing suspensions - reviewing the fundamentals can be valuable whatever your skill level.

Equipment

Some loaner rope and equipment will be available at the workshop, but bring the following, if you can:

  • (4) 10โ€™ lengths of strong 6mm  or 8mm rope
  • (2) 30โ€™ lengths of strong 6mm or 8mm rope
  • (1) suspension ring
  • (2) triangular carabiners (Max recommends this CAMP Picto carabiner)

Don't worry if you don't have all this gear - we'll have some loaner equipment on-hand for you to work with.
