Event Details

Being tied is both a gift of giving and receiving and preparing yourself for such a journey, especially when you don’t have a partner yet, can be a gauntlet to run.

This being tied / bottom-focused workshop is aimed specifically at participants who are looking to be tied by someone and do not have a lot of experience yet.

Caritia will guide you through this 1-day-workshop that will teach you how to critically and holistically (mind, body, emotions) find what you are seeking. You will learn the basics of tying so you understand the techniques and also what is happening to your body in ropes better. You will also inquire about your intentions, desires, and wishes and how to communicate them to your future partner. We will teach you how to advocate for yourself and your body.

In the afternoon, we will start experiencing rope together and, if you wish, you can have a session with one of out vetted and very experienced riggers.

Who is this event for?

LGBTQIA+ describes the full spectrum of non-mainstream sexual orientation and/or gender identity, meaning: lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, non-binary, genderqueer/fluid,

Friends describes people of any and all kinds of gender and sexual identities who are aware and respectful of the necessity, needs, and boundaries of a queer safe(r) space and its marginalized community.

When you consider yourself a friend you show acknowledgement to and are respectful of everyone’s self-expression and do not assume, presume or project non-consensual ideas onto others. You actively request and use people’s chosen pronouns. You remain mindful of the fact that Karada House is first and foremost a space for queer people that you are also invited to attend. You have a genuine concern for the well-being of LGBTQIA+ people and remain in awareness of heterosexual and gender straight privileges.

Friends don’t have to be perfect. None of us are. We request that we all pro-actively work and strive to be good friends and allies to marginalized people.
