We (Dan and JD) first began teaching interactive rope bondage workshops in 1999 at a venue in San Francisco (our hometown) called Castlebar. Sadly, Castlebar has since closed its dungeon doors, but we pressed forward.
Through the early 2000's we continued teaching at a variety of Bay Area venues. In 2002 we began work on our first book, Two Knotty Boys: Showing You the Ropes. Published in November 2006, Showing You the Ropes helped expand our impact on the rope bondage community.
Since then, we've traveled around the world teaching our unique brand of fusion rope bondage. We've created over 100 video tutorials (available for download on this site). And we're proud to say that our second book, Two Knotty Boys: Back on the Ropes, is now available!
Our goal is to demystify rope bondage. To provide instruction for safe, functional and estetically pleasing ties for the bedroom or beyond!
