Rope has always had a special place in my heart.

When searching for lowest hanging fruit metaphors regarding intimacy when writing, for example, a blog post, rope will always be there for you. Three is a freedom and release in the restriction. You don’t have the option to be self conscious, you can’t express shame and cover open when you’re spread open tied to a bed. You can only submit yourself to your partner and the experience and leave decision fatigue at the door. I get a thrill out of twisting the human form with fibers. I like making you my art project. I like taking you on a blindfolded adventure at my mercy.

From 2016 to 2019, I had the pleasure of sharing my passion and skills with Chicago. I hosted a series of events at our beloved and belated Taboo Tabou, a Chicago adult toy boutique. I taught a Bondage 101 course for couples and hosted Kink’n’Draw, a rope bondage figure drawing salon. I will never claim to be the greatest rigger whoever lived, but I love to teach and share! I get a real joy out of helping couples try something new. I loved getting to see them blushing and smiling at each other as I helped perfect their knots.

Taboo closed at the beginning of 2019 and its absence its definitely felt in our community. I’m proud I got to be a part of the family before she closed her doors. Below are some of the flyers I designed for promotions featuring some of my ropework and hot friends.
