A Taste for Rope

MonsignoreA Taste for RopeSeattle, WA — This past weekend had a distinct theme… Rope. Needless to say, I enjoyed myself immensely.

Saturday night I went to a house party hosted by Matisse and Max. This was my first opportunity to attend one of their parties and I was quite eager about seeing everyone. Many of my favorite people were there and it was good to catch up with them, swapping stories and exchanging ideas.

I took a new boy, Jeff to the party and he seemed to have a good time as well. He had never been in bondage before and I was lucky enough to provide his first time in rope. I love the excitement generated by someone’s first experience in rope bondage. We performed a partial suspension scene with an Arm & Chest (Ushirote Munenawa) harness and single bound ankle. I knew Jeff had developed a taste for the rope when he, like so many boys (including myself when first put in this posture), kicked his free leg up over the tied limb placing him self in full suspension. He told me later he was a little sad when the ropes were removed.

Later that evening, Monk, of TwistedMonk.com, performed a scene with one of Miss Candie’s girls the demonstrated elements of the newer dynamic suspension Shibari that’s coming out of Japan. The rigging allows the sub a vibrant array of movement while suspended including planks, flips and rotations. It is an extremely impressive sight to behold. When Monk was finished and had a moment to catch his breath I asked if he would give me the honor of bottoming to him in the scene. He granted my request and I stripped down.

It had been far too long since I had been in suspension. I relished every moment. My breathing slowed and the headspace came as Monk ran the rope over my body. I was home in the safe and trusted hands of an expert. I stayed focused, providing feedback and following instructions while trying to analyze the rigging for future application. Then I got to play in suspension like I have never played before. Under Monk’s watchful supervision, I flipped and planked, found my resting point, tangled and untangled the rigging. While I’m no five foot, seven inch tall, 113-pound gymnast, dancer, it was still amazing. I can’t wait to share the experience with Derek, the only boy I know that might be physically and mentally prepared for the challenge.

On Sunday I attended Max’s Bondage for Sex workshop at Seattle’s Center for Sex Positive Culture. I took my Tai boy TJ to serve as my stunt bottom for the practical application portions of the course. The class was well attended with many familiar faces and very informative. Although I will admit to spending most of the time figuring out how to modify the techniques to my own style, I’m sure Max wouldn’t mind. Afterward, Matisse asked us to join the crew for dinner at a Chinese restaurant in Fremont. I love breaking bread with kinky folk. The conversation is always so entertaining.

Tonight I’m spending time with my boy Christopher. We talked at length, reconnecting at a level that hasn’t been possible for some time and now we’re watching the Daily Show. Later, we’ll sleep together for the first time in weeks. I’m happy to have him back.
