Event Details

It’s time for the 2nd workshop in the Rope & Chronic Pain Series: Floor/Bedwork! In this 2 hour workshop, Almond will demonstrate and teach you how to do various self-ties and partnered ties on the floor or in bed. While switching roles with her partner, you’ll get a taste of how to take care of your chronically painful body in a variety of situations and ties. Let’s focus on listening to chronic pain and incorporating pain management into tying (rope topping), being tied (rope bottoming), and self-tying.

Grab your heating pad and join us to tie along, or watch from your most comfortable position! You and your pain are welcome here.

If you are new to rope & chronic pain, Almond suggests you watch the Introduction workshop of this series before joining. This workshop will give you a foundational understanding of how to navigate rope & chronic pain, including safety considerations, pain management, intention setting, and more. The on-demand version of the Introduction workshop is available at

Folx who are not in pain but want to educate themselves to be better prepared for being tied or tying with people in pain.
