Rope Series Class 2: Futomomo with Belle-

Every second Thursday, join Belle as she takes you through this eight class series! This series is designed to take the beginning rigger and teach them the fundamentals of using rope as the main tool in a scene while preparing them to successfully learn suspension. There will be a variety of topics covering many aspects of rope bondage, but the main purpose is to build the basic skills necessary to learn suspension in a safe way later on. These classes are meant to be taken in succession and the student will gain the most by attending all of the classes in the series. Each class will build upon knowledge, techniques, and skills learned during previous classes to provide new insight, ties, or understanding about rope.

Futomomo is the beautiful position of tying the lower leg to the upper leg. It is used heavily in Japanese style bondage for many reasons including the visual appeal and its great ability to restrain someone. This class will teach a couple of futomomo variations with a focus on both the technical aspects of the ties and the emotional. We will learn to tie each variation with intent, precision, and connection. HW: Choose one of the futomomo variants that we learned and practice tying it with connection. Pay particular focus on the untying process.

Belle- has been actively involved in kink, especially rope for more than four years now. She enjoys it from both sides of the spectrum but in the past two years has really been putting her focus in becoming the best rope top that she can be. Her passions in rope especially include predicament and torturous rope but is an avid student of every style she can get her hands on. Her personal philosophy is that the more she knows, the more she can choose from in each scene to create a unique experience between her and her bottom. Before moving the Philadelphia, Belle- was a co-founder and co-owner of local chapters of Hitchin’ Bitches and Rope Bite in her hometown of Kalamazoo, Michigan. She has a fire for spreading her passion about rope with anyone who will listen while creating a safe space for people of all skill levels to come, learn, share, and grow in their rope skills. Her teaching philosophy is based in the idea that there is no one right way to tie anything. There are only choices and each choice will have its own risks, merits, and effects.
