This class introduces the most popular and easy to execute style of decorative tying, creating patterns on the body that are great for a photo, enjoyable to wear out under or over your clothes, and quick enough to tie any time. No prior experience is required.

How This Class Works
You will need a partner, but they don’t need to be your romantic partner, and the class is structured to allow time for each participant to practice each technique as both the person tying and being tied. While we recommend that everybody practice both roles in class (even if you don’t normally switch for play), one person can do all the tying if you both prefer. If you’re looking for someone to pair up with, we have a group you can post in for just that purpose.

Please be assured that we welcome students with all types of bodies and identities. We’ll spend time in class talking about how to adapt ties for different people, and the instructor will always be happy to help you modify a technique to meet your needs and desires.

What to Study Before Class
Every participant should read over the following articles before class:

Getting Started with Rope

Basic Safety

Equipment You Need for Class
You will need at least 2 long (25-30 ft.) and 1 short (12-15 ft.) pieces of rope. For decorative tying, it can be useful to have some even longer pieces, so that you can complete complex ties without extending; if you happen to have some longer ropes, feel free to bring them. This article covers common questions about selecting rope and building a rope kit. The best place to buy ready-to-use ropes in San Francisco is Wicked Grounds -- be very wary of packaged “bondage rope” at adult toy stores and on Amazon, most of which is awful.

After Class

Enjoy cocktails with your partner which will be offered at Happy Hour pricing!

This class is limited to 30 total bodies and it will sell out. If you plan on attending, it is highly recommended that you make your reservations in advance.

About the Instructor
Topologist is one of the most recognized North American authorities on rope bondage. He has invented numerous new techniques, including the Somerville Bowline, which since its introduction in 2009 has become perhaps the most widely taught tie of non-Japanese origin. He is the facilitator of Rope Bite SF and the founder of Crash Restraint and the Core Rope Curriculum. Topologist's non-dogmatic approach to teaching rope places risk awareness and adaptability center stage, allowing challenging ties to be performed while honoring limitations and avoiding unnecessary hazards.
