Awesome will be happening Feb 3rd, from 1 pm to 5 pm. It will be at Roxy & Dukes again. (street view google needs to update this, it’s the same building just different business) It’s superbowl sunday and I don’t even know who’s playing. So let’s get our own play on!

Either way you should come to JRE because we have an awesome group in an awesome space all to ourselves with hard points.

Learn, share, ask, help, understand, experiment!

27.Oct.2012 November 11th! Next Meeting…

…will be November 11th, from 2 pm to 5 pm. It will be at Roxy & Dukes again. (street view google needs to update this, it’s the same building just different business) It is the weekend after GKE and 2 weeks before Brimstone.

25.Jul.2012 August 19th – more rope!

Our next meeting will be August 19th.

More changes! (please stick with us as we keep trying to settle into something consistant!) We will be meeting from 1 to 4. There is a photography group in the space after us (and you are welcome to stick around for that if you want!)

Our presenter/topic is still being hammered down, but you should plan on coming anyway. There will be rope. I can assure you.

 

The meeting again will be held at Roxy n’ Dukes. (directions) (street view google needs to update this, but it’s the same building) This place is a rockabilly restaurant/bar/club. They often have sideshow acts, bands, karaoke, and burlesque shows. We will be the ONLY people in the space during our time and so we have it all to ourselves. Fun Fact: There’s hard points! That means we can do suspensions in the space now! (If you are at that level)

23.May.2012 June 10th – Falling through the cracks.

We took the month of May off as mother’s day and Shibaricon have made it a bit of cramped, packed, overwhelming month for the organizers of JRE. But we are back en force for June

 

First - We are proud to present Wykd Dave and Clover will be here to instruct. They are from the UK, and are internationally known. This should not be a meeting to miss.

A freestyle exploration of questions, answers, misconceptions, principles and thoughts on Japanese style rope bondage plus a couple of interesting and useful ties and thoughts on tying for your bondage pleasure.

This will be a very informal class, come and say hi.

Second – We are switching spaces again. I’m sorry we keep confusing you with new locations but we are trying out something new and we hope you’ll take the gamble with us and that it all pays off.

The June 10th meeting (and hopefully all future meetings!) will be held at Roxy n’ Dukes. (directions) (street view google needs to update this, but it’s the same building) This place is a rockabilly restaurant/bar/club. They often have sideshow acts, bands, karaoke, and burlesque shows. We will be the ONLY people in the space and we have it all to ourselves. Fun Fact: There’s hard points! That means we can do suspensions in the space now! (If you are at that level)

Awesome presenters, amazing new space, this is NOT a meeting to miss! (that and we are thinking of going bimonthly, so you may have to wait until August for your next one!)

15.Apr.2012 April 22nd – Good Vibrations

Returning for a second month to the Piscataway Radisson (home of TESFest, GKE, BP Winter Solstice, the Triad Munch and now JRE):

JRE is happy to welcome Jocasta of Venus Ropes to our next meeting on April 22nd! She will be presenting on using fun toys along with rope.

“Good Vibrations”

My style of rope play often includes vibrators and dildos. I’ve amassed a collection of both. I’ve found certain vibes that work well with rope and have experimented with different ways to incorporate them into your rope work, or should I say rope play. I use these both with self-bondage and play with others.

Hope to see you all there!

 

Sunday, April 22nd 2-5pm at the Radisson in Piscataway. $10 entrance which goes towards affording the meeting space.

02.Mar.2012 march 11th – Playing with the Head

We are super happy to announce that for the upcoming March JRE meeting, we will be moving to the Radisson in Piscataway, NJ, which has hosted TESFest, Black Phoenix Winter Solstice and the Geeky Kinky Event. The staff LOVES us and is super accommodating since we are all such well-behaved kinksters!

So we will be meeting at our normal time slot, from 2 pm to 5 pm on Sunday March 11th. And JRE is even prouder to have Lee Harrington to present an awesome class on a unique topic:

Playing with the Head: Hair and Face Bondage We look out into the world through our eyes, listen to it with our ears, breathe in every breath through our nose and mouth, and communicate our desires with smiles, sparkling looks and verbal conversation. It is understandable why for many people; facial bondage is an invasion of personal space, an intimate form of play, and a hot way to get someone’s attention. We will focus on making rope blindfolds and gags, simple and complex hair bondage, woven head harnesses and more. (Bring a 15-20ft piece of 2-4mm line {parachute cord, hemp, silk sash line- whatever works for you} for head harnesses if possible, but standard 6mm line will work for blindfolds and gags)

Venus Ropes will also be at the meeting with all her wonderful wares for purchase including paracord, 4mm, and 6mm hemp rope which will be appropriate for Lee’s class.

For those who just may not know of the amazing person that Lee is, here is a snippet:

Lee Harrington is an eclectic artist, spiritual and erotic educator, gender explorer and published author and editor on human sexuality and spiritual experience- including “Sacred Kink: The Eightfold Paths of BDSM and Beyond,” “Shibari You Can Use: Japanese Rope Bondage and Erotic Macramé” and the “Toybag Guide to Age Play”. He has also worked as an anthology editor on such projects as “Rope, Bondage, and Power” and “Spirit of Desire.” Well known for his fun and informative approach to education, he approaches sexuality as yet another art to master, or simply an art to enjoy to its fullest! He has been an active part of the international kink and sex positive communities for over 14 years, and his stories make people laugh while showing you that eroticism can be as serious, sexy, or silly as you make it. Lee’s writings and photography have appeared in numerous anthologies, and he is an outspoken philosopher, a long-time sexuality and faith blogger (since 1998), spirit worker and priest. Check out the trouble he has been getting into, as well as his many books, audio classes, videos and more over at www.PassionAndSoul.com.

Lee will also be toting some of his published books for sale, so save on the shipping and get your hands on some of his amazing writings!

23.Feb.2012 Feb 26th – Single Rope Ties

-Presented by MataLeao

Carrying a full kit of rope with you to a party/event can be heavy or awkward. This class will guide students through steps to simplify and make their rope work more minimalistic. In this class, students will be shown methods for determining the structural elements of various common Japanese style ties in order to break those ties down to their basic elements and create a simpler version using only one rope. This is a hands-on class with plenty of opportunity for student participation.

RSVP on fetlife!

06.Dec.2011 December 18th- multiperson bondage

JRE is pleased to present the captain of Team Blue, Murphy Blue, to JRE’s December meeting to share his experience on tying multiple people.

Multi-Person Bondage, or “Sure, You can get tied up, too!”

When you add a second rope bottom into the mix, you add a second set of needs, desires, and expectations. This class focuses on some concepts and ideas to help you keep everyone as connected in the scene as possible, even if there are no knots holding them there.

For more info about Murphy you can find info on his website or fetlife profile.

See you there!

10.Oct.2011 October 16th – Kazari nawa

JRE is happy to welcome Monsignor Naugahyde, aka AgeVitam. For October, he will be presenting on kazari nawa.

Kazari nawa (Japanese for decorative rope) is a term used to describe the wrapping, weaving, and knotting of left over rope to complete a tie in Japanese style bondage. In this class, we will learn how to use kazari nawa to add support, cinch loose lines or correct other errors in a hastily built tie, and most importantly, to add a personal touch and decorative flair to our ropework.

This is a hands-on class, so be sure to bring rope (four or more 8 m (26 ft) lengths) and a partner.

 

You can RSVP here on fetlife
