Event Details


In this class, Ziggi will interview Hedwig about their experiences with going from being an international rope teacher and performer to quitting the rope world completely. It will be a conversation about mental health, the things that make (queer) people disappear from the rope scene, how a source of kinky creativity can run dry, and what it means to leave a community. 

Participants in this class will be encouraged to share their own thoughts and feelings on rope-related burnout, leaving a community, quitting kink et cetera. We feel these topics are definitely not talked about enough and hope that a class like this can both act as an affirming space for those who have experienced feelings of rope/kink/creative/etc. burnout, and as an opportunity to listen and learn for those who have not.

Note: this is NOT “Hedwig’s return to the rope world”.
