Consent & Communication in rope bondage

In this 2,5 – 6 hours workshop for bondage enthusiasts on both sides of the rope, we will deal with our intentions and wishes and how we communicate them. We will explore why we want to tie or be tied up. How do we deal with responsibility when we get in the rope? How can we protect our boundaries? How can we establish good, authentic communication about it? 

We will introduce a simple model that describes different qualities of giving and receiving, of giving and taking control in a bondage session. In interactive, playful exercises – with and without rope – we get to know these dimensions and the associated communication patterns.

Alexander NawaRonin: His background as a natural scientist in research and teaching as well as his experience in Japanese martial arts influence his teaching method. Kinbaku is a journey for him, a path he walks with his partner and a few close people, people whom he trusts to open. Kinbaku happens between two people, it is communication and emotion – and highly erotic. He is interested in playing with sensations to induce emotions: suffering, pain and pleasure … in beauty. 

What will I benefit from the workshop? 

  • Clarify the question of responsibility and understand what the rigger is responsible for, what the model is responsible for in a rope play 
  • Master intention-based consent, instead of going through a check-list 
  • Get a structure to talk about your wishes, needs and desires to each other to facilitate more intimacy and depth in your play
  • For riggers: learn the alternative to „serving your model“ dynamic and how to take over control in ropes 
  • For models: learn to surrender to your partner and their decisions in rope play, gain confidence in feeling your limits and communicating them, develop a positive communication with your partner: encouraging rather than pointing at mistakes
  • Learn to play more intense and more emotional with each other, dare more and trust more!
