Tifereth on Consent Discussions

Tifereth, who wrote a controversial essay about consent in the rope community, comes on the Ropecast to talk about the need for safe spaces to have constructive discussions about consent issues. 

“I do advocate for opening up the conversation to include non-judgemental discussion on consent errors so we may learn from our consent mistakes, because chances are you’re going to make one. Preferably off the internet, because there be trolls.”

This is part of a three-part series on consent.

This is all made possible by my sponsors, Moco JuteKarma Rope and Bastard Ropes, and especially this month with Twisted View, who has created some special reinforced up-line rope! Please let them know you appreciate their support of this podcast by buying their stuff – or at least telling them they’re cute!

Interview with Lizard!

By special request from a listener, Gray interviews Lizard, a teacher, performer, and stellar rope-bondage enthusiast. 

From her bio:

“Lizard has been active in the DC/Baltimore area for the last four years. She began tying at a local rope share group known as the Knotting Circle, and has since had the privilege of learning from some of the most influential rope artists around the world.

Lizard aspires to be a lifelong student of rope. She gathers knowledge from teachers, peers, and most notably from the people she ties along her journey. She describes her style of rope as one which favors structural simplicity, adaptability, fluidity, and connection over traditional aesthetics.

As an educator, Lizard has been involved in rope share groups such as DC Rope, The Knotting Circle, and NARIX. This year, she has begun teaching classes at local events such as Rope Mecca.”
