I have always been interested in exploring my own sexuality and curious about societies attitudes towards what is “normal”. I first encountered shibari around the end of 2013 after a few years exploring the BDSM scene, since then I have continuously discovered a whole new realm of pleasure, freedom and possibilities through my experiences in rope and kink.
I am passionate about sexual exploration, freedom of expression, and kink/BDSM education – I would like others to share in the cathartic experience it is to feel free to be who you want to be, and shed the fear of judgement and shame that we are often conditioned to feel from a young age. Expressing and connecting so deeply with inner desires/ fears and ‘self’ through rope and kink has been one of the most transformational experiences in my life so far, and I am very grateful to continue this journey. Rope has led me to be able to travel to present and perform across Europe and the USA.
I am interested in the power of exploring themes of vulnerability and weakness as a pathway to strength and ferocity – I think many of us have been conditioned to feel certain ways about our bodies, sexualities, desires and fears – but it can be a beautiful process to let that go. I feel strongly about respect and trust being the foundations to build true intimacy and go deeper into who we really are/want/desire/need to feel fuller and better beings. There is something very powerful about embracing our darkness and realising it is what has made us strong – just as we play with pain and pleasure in BDSM – emotions and the self are also a realm of beautiful contradictions, and emotions, which we should embrace rather than run from.
I am often found helping out at Anatomie Studio as a ‘House Cat’ – it is an incredibly warm and welcoming space opened by Miss Bones and Fred Hatt in South London which I would recommend to anyone who is interested in learning rope and meeting people in an open minded, + friendly environment with amazing education.
