Dear shibari friends,
we are happy to invite you to November's Rope Jam, organised by AthenShibari.

But, what is a rope jam?
Rope jam is an open practice and rope play session for all riggers, rope bottoms, rope switches and people into self-tying.

This time we are happy to present you our wonderful guests from France, Erato Bänana and Chocolapain. Together they will present you with their unique way of doing ropes, with a special emphasis to the tormenting ropes, knows also as semenawa. (more about the presenters at the end of the description)

Come and bring your ropes, your good mood, your friends and partners and even some snacks/drinks! You will be able to do ropes in a safe and calm environment, meet with other rope enthusiasts and of course meet the members of our team! (We are excited to see you!)

There is no teaching at this event, it is time to play!!
Don't you have previous experience with ropes? Feel free to come by and socialize with other rope enthusiasts :)
If you want to learn, we kindly invite you to come at any open class or to contact us for more information!

Dress code is pretty flexible. We recommend comfortable clothes to tie in or sit on the floor. However, if you prefer to dress up, feel free to choose an outfit that makes you feel sexy. Fetish outfit is welcome.

Cost is 10 euros per person. (pre-sale only).
Once you buy your spot, we will send you the address of the space.

AthenShibari - General Rules for Rope Jams

Rope jams are for attendees that are at least 18 years of age.

We do not tolerate abusive, inappropriate or offensive behavior.

Respect each other and respect common sense. Don´t touch other people´s equipment without asking permission first. Don’t touch people without their consent.

Please clean up after yourself. Make sure you throw out any trash you create, wash your plates/glasses, and clean your space after you’re done tying to allow others to make use of the spot.

Our general dress code is comfortable clothing. Topless is allowed for all genders in the studio area, but full nudity is not allowed.

Keep your volume at a reasonable level, both while tying and socializing.

Rope Jams are rope bondage oriented (social) events and are not BDSM play parties. Keep rope your main activity. Some BDSM acts are allowed (light impact play, wax play as long as you keep the space clean etc), but explicit sexual acts are not allowed. We would also like to avoid activities with excessive body fluids like spitting or drooling, unless under very good preparation to keep the space clean.

Make sure you practice safe and consensual bondage, don’t take unnecessary risk and only take risks if all participants are aware of the risk and willing to take them. Always keep a safety-shear in reach and ask for help in case of any emergency!

You are welcome to bring your own food & (non-alcoholic) drinks. We usually offer coffee and tea. However we will ask you to not bring anything in the rope area.

Feel free contact us if you need more information or to order some ready-to-use ropes. You can also contact us if you wish to hire a model or a rigger :)

Looking forward to see you there!

The AthenShibari team!

More about the presenters:
Switch, teacher & co-manager of Atelier Simonet (Paris)
For about ten years she had the funny habit of tying up her partners with anything she could get my hands on. She started taking shibari classes in 2017 with teachers of different styles, notably with May Dosem. She quickly realized that what would drive her in the ropes would be the same as in life: what is raw, without filter and without cheating.
As an actress and director by training, she has always been fascinated by the
expression of emotions and shibari has opened up new path of exploration for her.
She began to follow Docvale’s teaching in November 2018, at which time they also began tying together and then quickly working together.
Since 2019, she has been working on managing Atelier Simonet with Docvale and teaching there (regular classes and workshops).
Today, she thinks it is important to acquire solid technical bases in order to put them at the service of the relationship with the other, which is for her the center of kinbaku.
This is what she takes pleasure in transmitting to her students.
Bänana will tie Chocolapain. She has been practicing ropes for 5 years and is curious to discover different styles. She is always willing to share with Bänana new explorations and is her regular learning partner. Practicing semenawa is a funny bet for both of them, because they are very shy and used to hide their emotions. They progress on this path at their pace. They still have a lot to discover together.
