Intermediate Rope Class: Strappado - September 19
On Thursday September 21 (7:00-8:30pm) we will learn a brand new arm binding tie, Strappado, in MrRockstar's Intermediate Rope Bondage Class. This starts off with health and safety regarding nerves and circulation through the shoulders and arms. This will not be ideal for rope bottoms who have shoulder mobility challenges. The strappado arm position is arms behind lengthwise along the back. Tying the arms close together, forces the bottoms chest forward into an exposed and helpless state. Lifting the arms at the wrists forces the bottom to lean forward and expose their bottom. This arm position used in combination with leg positions such as lotus or double futo makes for a pretty and immobile bottom. Care must be taken to ensure not too much pressure is applied to the shoulders in this tie.
Must have taken Intro to Bondage 101 in order to understand safe tying and basic ties.
WHAT TO BRING
Two 30 ft pieces of rope should be sufficient.
This tie is impossible to tie yourself into, so we highly recommend that you do bring a willing partner to practice this tie on, or bribe one of the store staff to be your buddy in advance. We cannot promise you will meet a new rope buddy in this class (although hey, it is likely).
