Fire: Touching the Core

In this regular evening class for more advanced students in Seme-nawa we introduce the Gyaku-ebi position to teach techniques that reach deeper into the somatic body of the tied person. Increasingly we focus on intention and emotions. We show elements and principles of what we use in our own Kinbaku sessions. The physical and mental challenge is created in order to influence an emotional state of the person in ropes. Every element of it has a function and every action has an intention. The process of tying is slow and the generated figures are static. Rope after rope increases the challenge. The goal is to move the tied partner to surrendering and show them in all their beauty.

Who is it for?

This workshop is for couples (of all ages and gender constellations) who want to engage on an advanced level with our interpretation of Kinbaku. Each unit is self-contained and enriches you with a new twist on using erotic bondage in your play.

In order to master the element of fire, both partners should have developed a safe routine in tying together, also in suspension. Advanced couples and changers from other styles are welcome.

FAQ

I am a total beginner in the rope. Is the workshop suitable for me?

The ongoing course is not designed for total beginners, there is the workshop “From Zero to Patterns and Play“. In order to be able to participate really intensively and also to achieve the maximum effect for you, both partners must have developed a safe routine with tying together, also in suspension.

I do not have a partner. Can I still participate?

The workshop is deliberately advertised for couples. Even if you do not have a bondage partner yet – this is Berlin! Put an Ad in the usual platforms and you will certainly find someone who wants to share the experience with you.

Is switching allowed?

Switching is not “forbidden”, but the program is designed so that there will not be time to duplicate the exercises. We do not want the non-switchers be bored… As the principles are repeated in different exercises, you can of course do the exercises alternately if both partners want to learn actively.

My body is not as flexible as the models on the internet, can I still attend the workshop?

Yes. Kinbaku is the play on the limits of the individual possibilities of the person in the ropes, not the execution of fixed techniques. Important is the willingness of the partner in the rope to be in the rope for the limited time and the willingness of the partner with rope to deal responsibly with this gift. We will practice the techniques and principles in the workshop.
