Rope Made Easy: Introduction to Decorative Rope with Sir Wieland
Wednesday, September 9, 8:30 pm

This entertaining, hands-on class is for those who say they can't tie knots and that rope takes too long. Find out how easy rope can be!

We will be showing you how to tie a simple cuff (bolla bolla), a couple of arm ties, a basic chest tie, and a simple karada (body tie). With these concepts, you can be creative and develop your own ties and styles. We will talk briefly about safety, materials, and lengths, and then quickly get the rope in your hands. If you are unpartnered, we will pair people up so everyone gets a chance to tie. Tighter fitting clothing will make tying easier. If you normally wear a bra, a thinner (non underwire) bra or no bra is best for feeling the tie.

If you have your own rope, bring two 20-30 ft pieces. The instructor will also bring some rope for folks to use. After learning a few ties, you will have a better idea of the lengths you may want to have. The Tool Shed has a selection of rope for purchase.

$15 per person or $25 per couple. Register here.

Take it Like a Man: AnIintroduction to Pegging
with Cooper Becket and Lyndzi Miller
Friday, October 9, 8:30 pm
Pegging - The act of a female giving anal sex to a male using a strap-on. Some couples enjoy the power reversal of this and some guys simply just like it up the arse. (source: Urban Dictionary)

Here at the Tool Shed we get questions about pegging every day. How do we do it? What are the right tools for the job? Does it actually feel good? I'm a straight guy, will pegging make me gay?

Lyndzi Miller, Tool Shed staff member and sexuality educator, and Cooper Becket, Life on the Swingset podcaster, will answer these questions and cover all of the basics of pegging, a sexual activity that is quickly gaining popularity. They'll also talk about safety, male anatomy and the health benefits of being pegged. Yes guys, that's right. Taking it in the boot is actually good for you!

$15 per person/$25 per couple. Register here.
