Bondage Lessons

Noble has been exploring his fascination with consensual bondage and Dominant/submissive hierarchies for over three decades. He is recognized in the lifestyle community as an accomplished artist and rigger with a knack for helping others learn how to explore this powerful means of connecting deeply with their intimates.

Noble teaches workshops on the art of rope restraint and accepts private students ages 18 years or older in and around the Portland, Oregon area.  Travel outside Portland for photography or workshops is possible if compensation, fare, and accommodations are provided.

Private instruction is the fastest way to make large gains in your rope skills. There’s an energy at workshops and during group lessons that can be fun for many people; but private instruction really allows you to tailor the instruction to exactly what you want to learn and the teaching style that suits your personal needs. Plus, because the instruction is all one-on-one, you really get a lot more out of it.

The introductory rate for private instruction is $46/hour with an hour-and-a-half minimum. These rates are presently lower than rates for comparable private bondage instruction found in other major cities; but for now we want to encourage people to get personal lessons by making it more affordable.

Instruction topics can be tailored specifically to your needs; but, the list below can be used as a guideline for possible lesson subjects.
