The Physics of Rope Bondage
This demonstration explores the basic principles of mechanical physics as they apply to rope suspension. Topics such as force, torque, center of mass, and torsion will be discussed in theory and demonstrated in practice.  We wish to give people language and understanding of the physical laws that govern their rope skills, and to improve their intuition about the physical scenarios they interact with when they tie.

About Marceline VQ

Marceline began as a rope bottom when she was 19, then quickly developed an interest in the technical and aesthetic aspects of tying. She has been tying, rope bottoming, and self-tying for 3 years, and enjoys creating challenging and beautiful shapes with rope. She has learned from and worked with a number of people from rope communities across the globe, with ties to both the kink and art worlds. Her personal rope philosophy promotes disciplined practice, intentional communication, and, most importantly, enjoyment!

Due to space constraints, and to preserve our friendly, polite, gentle, yet devilishly erotic, decadently uncrowded atmosphere, we only invite a limited number of guests for each session.
Sorry (not sorry).

We will not admit anyone who is not on the guest list. You are not a plus one, you are not an accessory, you are not someone's insignificant date. Capisci?
Sorry (not... you get the picture)

So, if we're not already acquainted, send us a private message so that we may become so. Returning guests are always welcome, please RSVP here, on our facebook listing, or by contacting us via private message:

It's not that we want to be assholes, really, it's that we prefer to know with whom we are sharing space. Accountability is a thing. (You're welcome)

Invitations and directions will be sent out the day before the event. It gets tricky the day of...


Ropes U works well because everyone who attends is is on the same page about how to treat one another.

There are no passive consumers here, everyone is an active participant.

Top, bottom, observer...  Equals

The magic only happens when everyone in the room feels empowered.

Take a minute to read, and to think about where we're coming from:
