Fantastic introduction to rope
I can’t say enough good things about All Tied Up’s Safety and Introduction class. Rope always seemed very daunting to me, but Dan and Renee created a comfortable space to learn about the actual risks while making it approachable. They addressed so much more than just the rope and ties! It is definitely a path that you can follow to as much community and connection as you are looking for. Plus, they’re funny and engaging. The class is long, but the time flew by. I will definitely be back to learn more from them!
Very friendly for a novice
I’m a middle-aged, vanilla-but-curious guy who went to one of their introduction and safety sessions. It was the first kink event I had ever attended.
They did an exemplary job of making things friendly, welcoming, and nonjudgmental. A wide variety of body types attended, and it was very clear that everyone was welcome. There was a thorough presentation on ethics and consent, with frank and open discussion of some subtleties, and emphasis on how clear consent is both necessary and fun. I was especially fond of the male instructor’s clarification about why a beginner’s enthusiasm could potentially lead to trouble, and how a “no” really needn’t be seen as a personal rejection.
The actual rope skill lesson involved single and double columns and a basic chest harness. Rope was provided for those of us who didn’t have it (along with advice on what kind and how much to get). The instructions were quite clear. One more instructor to help check work, solve problems, and answer questions probably would have helped a little, but nobody had any significant problems. And it was a lot of fun! I was impressed at how effectively they taught these three basics. My partner and I have been able to practice them at home, continuing to learn.
It’s probably also worth mentioning that the rope work was pretty hot. 😉
Nice job! We’ll be returning for a 101 class.
First time kink event
This was my first time at a kink event and I’m glad I got the courage to go. I brought a friend too, so that helped. Everybody was super friendly. The lesson part was incredible, super helpful. Then we’re taught three ties. That got me, and I’m super excited to keep attending the next events.
