Welcome to Hitchin’ Bitches, at Threshold
Hitchin’ Bitches SoCal is a division of Hitchin’ Bitches International, founded by Hedwig Florence. It is a women-led rope education and practice time dedicated to empowering women who tie to improve and develop their rope skills. It is a place for women, transgender, nonbinary, genderqueer, intersex tops. Bottoms of all gender identities are welcome. This event is moderated by Hitchin’ Bitches LA, and the hosts are affiliated Cell graduates of The Devil Mask Society.
Join them for their monthly open tie and skill-sharing gathering! This event is a focused rope bondage laboratory. Hosts will be on hand to help answer questions and demonstrate some rope bondage techniques. This can include sharing ideas, asking questions, following along with others, problem-solving together, and generally just having lots of fun with rope. Instruction will be provided at the start of the session only.
Hitchin’ Bitches is an experimental “sandbox” environment. You are welcome to their event as long as you comply with both their and our rules.
Mainstream media tends to portray rope bondage using stereotypical “one size fits all” imagery that doesn’t reflect the reality in which we live. We believe that rope bondage is for everybody and every body. While our group is centered around “women who tie,” we leave it to our members to decide if that is congruent with their gender identity.
At the start of the session, we’ll be offering a Rope 101 crash course, covering single and double column ties and some basic terminology and safety concepts for those that are totally new to rope or need a refresher course. The lesson will follow afterward. You do not have to participate in the lesson but please enter quietly if you arrive after it has begun to not disrupt any instruction in progress. For the safety of our group, please understand that this is a learning & practice event, not a place to have a full “rope scene.”
