“So you want to get tied up?” – Rope Bottoming 101 by Whiskey Ginger

With the growing popularity of Shibari there are plenty of educational opportunities for Tops who want to tie people up. When entering the kink community as someone who wants to get tied up, finding education aimed at you can be a bit daunting! Whiskey Ginger is here to help out by providing a class for rope bottoms taught by a rope bottom! In this workshop we will cover rope lingo, safety, networking for play partners, vetting potential Tops, and community resources for bottoms. Strong emphasis is placed on communication, bottom-led negotiation, and clear consent processes!

Ongoing Events

Bendy Bottoms – 2 hour bi-weekly class at Studio Friction, Denver, Colorado

Terms like Active Bottoming, engaged bottom, responsible bottom, body-aware, and fit/flexible/bendy are often brought up when talking about what a “good rope bottom” brings to the table for their Top. What does this mean when it comes to preparing your body for the strain of rope play? There are tons of physical training options out there, but what most efficiently prepares your mind-body connection, core strength, and flexibility specifically for rope? Whiskey and her co-facilitator are here to help students find these answers!

This class is based on traditional Mongolian Contortion Technique and aims to help students sustainably stretch, strengthen, grow somatic awareness, increase ability to process pain, and prevent injuries! We will start where you are at and gradually push you to explore your body. Change will come quickly!

Open to all body sizes, genders, abilities, sexual identities, Tops, Bottoms, Switches, etc! Though the class is aimed at supporting Bottoms, everyone can benefit from this all levels class! Tops are highly encouraged to join!
