Noirot & Shirin – Announcing perfomer
Noirot is a pervert that loves using ropes to realize his fantasies, and fantasies of his partner. He is in love with Japanese bondage, both with its history and its real-world application. For him, kinbaku is an all-encompassing journey.
His tying style heavily relies on his partner and the surrounding circumstances. One session can be a slow, torturous semenawa tie. The next one can be fast-paced, dynamic blend between tying and dancing. He has been developing these expressions under tuition of Soptík, as well as other world class educators, such as Nicolas Arnoys, Kinbaku LuXuria or Discover Kinbaku.
His approach to tying, in any style, is based in study of body mechanics and natural movement abilities. He believes that to have a good, safe experience, it’s essential to study technique. But while tying each rope must come from mutual empathy and desire, rather than repeating forms step by step.
Shirin is a passionate rope model. She enjoys surrender in all forms inside the ropes, anywhere from energetic, rough tying to slow and romantic. Her own expression is a fluid combination of mental and physical suffering, not shying away from exposure and shame entwined within the ropes.
Breathing techniques and breath restrictions for rope bondage
(Workshop level: L1-3)
Breathe in, breathe out. Half of this workshop is dedicated to learning and practicing good breathing. How to develop multiple ways of breathing, how to breathe through difficult ties and how to use breath to stabilise ourselves.
After we build a solid breathing foundation, we will look at simple and creative ways of restricting our partners breath. Because not every breath restriction works the same and not every breath restriction has to be a hand around throat.
Breathing techniques are valuable to both tops and bottoms and everyone should be able to walk away with useful improvements to their breathing.
Pressure points for tying
(Workshop level: L1-3)
When rope doesn’t constrict our partners enough, we can push them a little bit more. Pressure points are fun and terrifying way to affect our partners very quickly, in very unexpected ways.
First, we’re going to look at how to find these points, and how to use them safely. We’ll practice basic pressure point play ideas, which can be used with or without rope, on the ground or fully in air. We will share both creative ideas how to take this kind of play further, and specific obstacles, that might arise during certain scenarios.
Pressure points play is a handful of basic ideas. If you master them, it will be your partners favourite thing to hate. Although bruises aren’t necessarily always the result, expect to make a couple of them while learning.
(Workshop level: L2-3)
Overtying is an element of tying, in which we use more ropes, than is necessarily needed for the basic purpose of the tie. But ties are rarely basic and sometimes, we want to express something in our tying, that’s difficult to do with just a basic pattern.
Using additional ropes stimulates our partners in a specific way and affects the flow of the session. But sometimes, when we’re not sure with what we want to do with the extra rope, our partner might as well become a ball of yarn.
Along with the aesthetics of overtying, the key topic we’re going to focus on is intention and communication with ropes, to make sure you’re getting the results you’re after.
