Ferocious Bottoming – with Sophia

Who can come to this class? Are there pre-requisites?

This class is suitable for a variety of levels, but those who have some knowledge of rope & rope bottoming will get the most out of the class. If you want to join the class and are a complete beginner, join us for a few Thursdays at least to get a working knowledge of rope and your body.

What should I bring and what do I wear? We have a communal kitchenette, fridge and microwave, so feel free to bring lunch/snacks. Tea and coffee are free. People usually wear comfortable clothing like yoga or dance attire. We advise against loose fitting clothing and also jeans can sometimes feel a bit restrictive to move around in and difficult to tie on. We have communal ropes if you don’t have your own.

When does it take place? This is workshop takes place Friday October 19th (7-10:30pm).

Who teaches this class? This workshop is taught by Sophia.

“I have always been interested in exploring my own sexuality and curious about societies attitudes towards what is “normal”. I first encountered shibari around the end of 2013 after a few years exploring the BDSM scene, since then I have continuously discovered a whole new realm of pleasure, freedom and possibilities through my experiences in rope and kink.

“I am passionate about sexual exploration, freedom of expression, and kink/BDSM education. Expressing and connecting so deeply with my inner desires/ fears and ‘self’ through rope has been one of the most transformational experiences in my life so far, and I am very grateful to continue this journey! Rope has led me to be able to travel to present and perform across Europe and the USA, I have had the pleasure to model for, teach alongside, and perform with some incredible riggers, teachers and artists such as Pedro, Fred Hatt, Anna Bones, Felix Ruckert, Hedwig, Soptik and Gestalta.

“I am often found helping out at Anatomie Studio as a ‘House Cat’ – it is an incredibly warm and welcoming space opened by Miss Bones and Fred Hatt in South London which I would recommend to anyone who is interested in learning rope and meeting people in an open minded, + friendly environment with amazing education.”

How much does this cost? £45 per couple.

Workshop Description:

In Sophia’s words:
Rope for me, should be about creating powerful and beautiful experiences for yourself and together with your partners. Bottoming is not a passive role, during this workshop we will explore the ways in which we can make the experience the most pleasurable for ourselves, and our partners, from the inside. Let’s explore our own power within the ropes, including:
– Exploring non verbal communication : how to give suggestions/inspire/and communicate with your partner with your body
– Developing better body awareness: how to engage our bodies to make the rope most efficient and pleasurable for ourselves
– Power of breath and vocalisation : to get into a certain headspace etc
– Tips for riggers on reading your partner in ropes : what does that noise/movement/expression really mean?
– Exercises to put all these things into practice (improv rope games)
