III. Introduction to Rope Bondage, 4 Week Series


Hello Gentleman!

In an effort to keep our hard skills up and have more men playing safely, we've decided to begin doing 4 Week Workshops which will take someone from knowing nothing or very little of a skill, to being at least mildly proficient at the 101-20 level. Starting in February, Doriam will be taking a Maximum of 8 participants in for a Rope Bondage series. If you are interested, contact him at DoriamFMSD@GMail.com and continue reading below:

"Hi folks! I am excited to share my favorite kinks and fetishes with you in this series - Knowledge Transfer! This workshop will be 3 hours a day, 1 day a week for 4 weeks. The goal is to give you enough proficiency to scene and play comfortably with rope."
Week 1: Negotiation, Safety, Starting Knots I-III and Chest Harness I
Week 2: Chest Harness II, Hitch Tying I & II, Hip Harness I (+ Crotch Rope!)
Week 3: Leg Tie I, Wrist Restraint I, Hip Harness II
Week 4: Combination Ties, Scening with Rope
  • Date/Time: Wednesday Evenings or Saturday Afternoons (TBD)
  • Location: North Park, San Diego, CA
  • Enrollment Cost: $20 donation paid to FMSD holds your spot, which will be refunded to you IF you attend the first day of class. If you do not attend, it will be considered a donation to FMSD and your spot will be given to another student. With 48-hour advance notice, this can be refunded if you cannot attend the workshop series.
  • Additional Cost: Cost of material, discussed during first day of workshop. Costs for materials are $20+ depending on preference (Doriam's preference: 4 Lengths of Jute + Safety Scissors, roughly $30). PLEASE DO NOT BUY NEW ROPE BEFORE WEEK 1 WITHOUT TALKING TO DORIAM.
  • Commitment: Four 3-hour workshops in February, if you miss one workshop you can make it up with Doriam independently based on availability.
