Hitchin' Bitches Rope Skillshare – San Francisco

FetLife Event: fetlife.com/events/618912

Location: Center for Sex and Culture, 1349 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94103

Cost: $10-$20 Suggested Donation; no one will be turned away for lack of funds; if you’re able to donate more, please do.

SKILL SHARE
This is our monthly gathering to induce passionate skill sharing between all Hitchin' Bitches. We spend a few hours a month in shared rope lab time. This includes asking questions, sharing ideas, problem solving together, following along with others, riffing with the rope, and generally rope jamming together.

WHO Is A Hitchin' Bitch?
Hitchin Bitches are: all women, all transgender, non-gender-conforming, non-binary, and gender-fluid people drawn to tie, share, and experience rope first hand based upon peer-to-peer learning and sharing of concepts. Male bottoms may attend as long as they're accompanied by a Hitchin' Bitch rope top/rigger/dominant and respect the Hitchin Bitches ethos. During the occasions where there is an abundance of rope tops or bottoms, we encourage Hitchin Bitches to switch.

WHAT Are We Doing?
Together we are creating a safe space for Hitchin' Bitches to collaborate, practice, learn, and find their own rope voice. We want to create a thriving network so that we are representing and represented in the broader kink/leather communities by creating a non-intimidating environmental to explore by learning from each other.

This is what to expect:
- Negotiation 101
-basic safety
-rope peer-share
-interactive rope play
-members helping members

Don’t worry if you’re completely new to rope, absolute beginners are always welcome. More experienced Hitchin Bitches are equally encouraged, whether you want space to practice, to work on more advanced ties, or are looking for the chance to share your knowledge with others. If there’s something you’d be interested in teaching the group, post a discussion on our FetLife group page: fetlife.com/groups/77437

ROPE:
Please feel free to bring your own rope. If you do not have any, we will be providing some; please be sure to return what you borrow.

SAFETY:
As with any kind of bondage, safety is paramount. All attendees participate at their own risk. Please make sure you know where your safety shears/cutting tools for rope are, as well as your needs as rope top or rope bottom and communicate these. No means no; this is first and foremost a learning environment, not a cruising spot. No drugs or alcohol.

PHOTOGRAPHY:
Photography is permitted, but only with the explicit consent from all of those in the image, including those in the background: please make sure to ask for permission and discuss how the photograph will be used.
