This was my first official performance as a rope top; March 2016.
It was the one year anniversary of our rope space, The Salon. I shared the stage with my co-owner, Lucero, and our wonderful friend RedBear; both absolute proficients in their art. To say I was nervous would be quite an understatement!
I tied my gorgeous friend izanami. It was her first performance as a bottom, and I don’t think my nerves helped her feel more at ease! She did beautifully and was beyond gorgeous in the fumbled rope I put around her.
I sampled Valerie’s Letter from V for Vendetta at the beginning of our music. I have always been drawn to its words and it seemed fitting to tie in my first performance to a theme of freedom – something rope has always made me feel.
…But it was my integrity that was important.
Is that so selfish?
It sells for so little, but it’s all we have left in this place.
It is the very last inch of us.
But within that inch we are free.
