Rope School Saint Louis

Begun in January of 2013, Rope School Saint Louis is a successful and popular private class series hosted by T0ne. With the opening of Studio Kinbaku, Rope School Saint Louis has a new home! Rope School Saint Louis is not affiliated with Studio Kinbaku. It is an independently organized project dedicated to the art and practice of rope bondage. Workshops are scheduled monthly, occurring on the second Saturday afternoon of each month. Topics for workshops will vary every month, with regular Introduction to Rope Bondage sessions interspersed. Rope School Saint Louis is open to anyone 18 or older who wishes to increase their personal rope skills.

Workshops take place at 3:00pm on the second Saturday of each month. Admission is $10 per person for most workshops, more for advanced classes. The cost is so low because we only charge enough to cover facility and expenses. you MUST RSVP for each class on FetLife! No walk-ins, please.

Rope School Saint Louis is a privately-hosted, noncommercial workshop series. Rope School Saint Louis is sponsored in part by Aja Rope and Maui Kink, our favorite local purveyors of fine quality handcrafted rope made for human bondage.

Hitchin’ Bitches Saint Louis

Hitchin’ Bitches Saint Louis is an independent social/practice group for female-identified rope riggers/rope tops/dominants in the Saint Louis, MO area. The group is organized to meet to learn, share, and experience rope first-hand based upon Peer-to-Peer and un-conference learning and sharing concepts. Our mission is to create a neutral learning and sharing space, with female energy and compassion to drive our art. All skill levels are welcome. Peer-Shares are not a substitute for organized classes, workshops, or lessons, nor are they play parties or cruising events.

Hitchin’ Bitches Saint Louis hosts regular Peer-Share events on the 4th Thursday of every month. Attendance at the monthly Peer-Shares is by invitation only, but new riggers are welcome to message kitten to request an invitation. If you are new to the local scene we’d love to get to know you a little bit. We encourage all new riggers to attend one of our munches or meet with us at one of the many local public events. (There are lots of public local events from which to choose, and most of us are at nearly all of them. Not sure of other public events? Message kitten to help you get in touch with an event and some HB members attending.)

Hitchin’ Bitches first started in late 2011 in London, England, to provide a relaxed space in which more women can feel confident to start exploring ropes, as well as function as a network for those passionate about rope. You can find out more about Hitchin’ Bitches International in their FetLife group and on their webpage.

We welcome all women who live full time as women and FTM, genderqueer and intersexed persons who feel that they still have links to women’s communities.
