Andrea Ropes is an Italian rigger based in Bologna with more than a decade of experience in Japanese bondage. Since the beginning of 2015 he has become professionist and is often in Japan to learn new techniques, to be able to share them during his shows and teach them through private lessons, courses and workshops around Italy and Europe.

A purely erotic vision of ropes, combined with an excellent use of the techniques learned and expertly mixed, create his unique style. Fluid, eclectic and eccentric are adjectives that can fully describe him during his shows. What characterizes him as a teacher are the great passion, the scrupulous technical preparation and the flexibility that allows him to adapt the type of teaching to the different needs of the students.

Initially self-taught, he later studied with great masters such as Kanna Nawashi, Haruk Yukimura, Hajime Kinoko, Otonawa, Bingo Shigonawa, Bob Ropemarks, etc. Current President of the BDSM Bologna Project, where he takes care of and manages courses and workshops dedicated to the ropes, he remains very active in the international scene as a performer and educator.
