Reviews on some of my classes
- Intro to Rope Bondage / I know a few Ties Now What:
- Great job by Rigger Jay. His tips and tricks bring bondage in the bedroom to a new level of intimacy. His suggestions for power play were spot on and really made sense!
- Riggerjay is as always is very good. I enjoyed this class a lot as he explained simple stuff which was good for me. He also suggested good books, etc. I thought he did very well and can’t wait till the next class he teaches.
- This was one of my favorite classes. It got me out of “must tie a knot” to “I am interacting with my partner”. I think that single shift of perspective was worth the whole weekend!
- RiggerJays “now what” class was smaller and more intimate. The hands on approach-he walked around to everyone and put folks at ease. Just because you did not get it perfectly, did not mean you could not continue on.
- Great Escape was an absolute hoot! Something like this should be a regular offering.
- Great Escape:Always fun to watch and participate in. Though now my rope top knows how to stop me from wiggling out.
- Great time. Especially liked the tie/escape, top vs top, and the group twister.
- Fun, fun, fun, and even better than last time. You can tell RJ is noting which games work better than others and improving each time.
- What can I say.. this was SO much fun.. MORE MORE MORE!! However i was exhausted by the end.. so.. glad it was on Saturday!
- Rope Games Clearly demonstrated how much fun Playing can be. The more experienced players really did throw caution to the wind. Greatly appriciated.
