Timing & Tone: An Exploration in Partial Suspension Presented by Blue & Moxie


We are excited to share a favorite partial suspension sequence with you!

Beyond the harnesses that are tied to create the forms, our intention is to make a deeper exploration of the effect of time in a rope scene, to find a beginning, middle and end to the ‘story’ of the scene, and to create different shapes with the bottom’s body and investigate the varied mental and emotional effects.

Class will begin with a brief introduction and explanation of the sequence, move into the demo, and wrap up with plenty of time at the end for Q&A and debriefing.

There will be no tie-along portions, nor specific harness patterns taught; we hope you get inspired by the class to try some of these concepts on your own time, and are here to answer any questions you may have (whether technical or conceptual)!

Content will be aimed at those who have experience in suspension (riggers with experience in locking-off and managing suspension lines, and bottoms who know their bodies in rope, in suspension, and are able to tell the difference between circulation and nerve issues.) If you are not quite at that level, but curious about suspension and aiming to get there, please feel welcome to attend!

About the presenters:

Blue has been teaching and performing Rope Bondage since 2012. In June 2017, she opened VoxBody Studio, the Bay Area’s first rope-dedicated venue and launched a yearlong in-house core curriculum for students to move from beginner through to suspension. Her core belief about rope bondage is that the ties and knots are one part of a much bigger picture that includes focus on communication, consent practices, body awareness and anatomy, and energetics/how we show up for each other.

Moxie is a bondage enthusiast based in California, and has been rope bottoming for four years, and tying for two years. She’s passionate about restraint, aesthetics, body awareness, and rope that makes her feel distressed. She enjoys exploring ties that can be challenging or disturbing, as well as awkward positions that make her laugh. She practices aerial and flexibility outside of rope to stay connected with her body and gain understanding of how our bodies communicate to us.

Blue and Moxie are both enthusiastic switches, and believe rope education should address both sides of the rope. They have been co-teaching for the last two years, through VoxBody (in-person and now online) and the Bank (Los Angeles).
