Hit Me Up: Tie Me Down

Beginner Class | Chest Harnesses for Every Body

Learned the basics and wondering what the next steps are? Hoping to expand your knowledge about tying the upper body? Wanting to tie something pretty on yourself or someone else? Or just seeking a creative way to put some pressure on those lungs after a long day? We got you!

What you will learn:

In this class we will cover structured arms-free chest harnesses and creative ways to bind the upper body for floor play and decoration. You will come away knowing a few formal ties as well as some technical frictions. There will also be a discussion about helping your bottoms feel more affirmed through modifications of ties by emphasizing or binding the chest tissue.

Who should attend:

All body types and gender expressions are welcome in this class. Rope is for every body! You can come with a partner or come alone. Self tying is possible with most of what we will cover. Prerequisites required is knowledge of a non-collapsable single column tie. Please review this video if you need a refresher before class.

What to bring:

If you have rope, bring 2-3 hanks and your safety shears. There will also be rope to share, and some rope to purchase.

All attendees require a ticket, whether you are coming solo or with a partner.

Mistress Trixie LaPointe is a rope artist and disciplinarian living in NYC. She has been practicing rope and exploring her dominance since early 2018. You may have had the pleasure of being tied by her at events such as Hit Me Up Tempo, House of Yes, Chemistry, Femme Fatale or other smaller events. She is incredibly inspired by all the new people falling in love with rope and loves being a part of this community. Her goal in life is to help as many people as possible to open up and explore kink in a safe yet playful way.
