WEBINAR: Breath Play in Rope with Lief Bound and Icarus

Please note: This will be a live, online class offered through Zoom.

This is an advanced class that is taught with respect and acknowledgment of how dangerous breath play in rope can be. We see it all the time, neck rope, suffocation, maybe the occasional plastic bag. However, there is no how-to guide on how to do this safely and sanely in a consensual way, risk-aware of the dangerous outcomes. In this class, we will talk about the dangers of breath play, short term, and long term. We will build consent with our partners for the kind of breath play that we want. We will talk about different forms of breath play and most importantly, how to incorporate it into our rope scenes. We will demo how to use different forms of breath play and learn ties that are safe to incorporate into your rope. All the knowledge you will obtain from this class will prepare you to be a safer breath player.


Lief Bound and Icarus are young, queer, rope performance artists currently residing in Los Angeles, California. Lief Bound is a rope switch who found their love of rope six years ago in the Boston scene. Icarus is a switchy pain enthusiast who started their rope bottoming exploration six years ago and is most passionate about incorporating their career in social justice into their kink education. Lief and Icarus have had the privilege of teaching at Vox Body, Snowbound, and Tethered Together (cancelled due to COVID) as well as locally in LA. They are most passionate about using multi-media process art to share their vision with the world and push the boundaries of what defines rope.
