| ROPESHARE RETURNS ON SUNDAY OCTOBER 30th
||[Sep. 22nd, 2011|03:00 pm]
GOOD TIES, GOOD TIMES....
We had SO MUCH FUN at September's RopeShare with simple ties for newbies, that we decided to do more of the basics. These will be ties that anyone can learn, but they are the building blocks for more elaborate bondage. Perfect for beginners, but if you already have some roping skills, this workshop will refresh and sharpen your skills.
We're delighted that our regulars keep coming back, month after month. Maybe it's because of the playful and relaxed atmosphere that makes learning fun. And we always try to throw in something new to keep 'em happy!
There will be at least 3 ties; more if time allows.
You'll have plenty of practice time and individual attention. Everyone buddies up and switches, so you will experience both ends of the rope.
PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
Kinky people of all genders and orientations are welcome! Participants must be 18 or over.
