    I've had people ask me for some time when I do rope: "Can you teach me to do that?" The short answer has always been 'yes'. The longer answer has always been 'Yes, but I'll need a space in which to do it'. Well, I now have a space. Feel free to join me at The Freyja Project for a night of rope education. 

    My goal is to make sure everyone who shows up walks away with something. So, the structure of this event may be constantly changing. So, no matter your skill level, you will learn something new.

    Hitchin' Bitches, an international peer-to-peer learning and discussion group that began in London, England, in 2011, seeks to provide a relaxed and comfortable space to help female/trans-feminine/GF/GQ/IS people of all skill levels feel confident to explore rope. 

    Bottoms of all orientations and identities who respect the space and ethos of the group are also welcome. At our events, we share ideas for tying ourselves, men, bottoms with limited mobility, and any other topics relevant to our group's needs. Join us!

    Almost a decade ago, Show Me The Ropes started out as a group of people from the Madison area with a common interest in rope who occasionally got together to share their knowledge with one another and/or get tied up. 

    We now meet on a monthly basis and offer a variety of formal class topics, peer-to-peer discussions, and lab times for people of all skill levels. Topics range from chest and hip harnesses, to detail bondage and suspension and are posted ahead of time on our Fet group page and event listings. Join us!

    Are you an artist? Do you just like drawing? Frustrated with trying to add rope or leather or ball gags to "traditional" figure models?

    Wicked Lines was created for you.

    This event started at the hallowed Wicked Grounds in San Francisco. Figure models will pose in various kinky scenarios in a well-lit and friendly environment for attendees to sketch. Poses will range from 20 minutes to 1-minute "gesture speed rounds".

    This is not a play party, but the model(s) may choose to explore their own kink within the scope of the still-life poses. At the end of the evening, the model will pick out their favorite sketch and the talented artist goes home with a prize, as well as free admission to next month's event!

    Interested in Modeling for Wicked Lines?

    Models are compensated for their time and efforts. Wicked Lines is an inclusive space and we are always looking for a diverse range of bodies and kinks for our drawing events. Must be able to hold a pose for between 1-20 minutes with rest breaks for a shift of an hour. Feel free to suggest your own kinky twist to your pose as well. Contact for more information.

    The Freyja Project is an alcohol-free event space, but coffee, tea, and soft drinks are available for purchase. Basic art supplies (pencils, sketchbooks, erasers) will also be available for purchase, but attendees are encouraged to bring their own art supplies including easels. No photography allowed.

    Madison Bights is meant to be a space for people to practice rope regularly outside of the big monthly rope groups. Practice makes confident the ties and techniques. This is to allow all people to practice without needing to: be aware of who might walk in on them, have access to personal hard points and equipment, go without guidance/input/supervision of kink friendly beings or just not doing it by themselves.

    So come out and get tied up tying someone down or tied down by someone tying you up. Either way, there will be tying, oh yes... So much tying.

    A donation of $5 per person is appreciated.

    This is a great way to meet other like minded people in a no-pressure, relaxing atmosphere. We'll have coffee and cookies, but feel free to bring snacks, a dish to pass, desserts or drinks to share. 

    This event is open to the public and registration is not required. Got friends that have been curious about The Freyja Project? This would be a perfect introduction to the space.

    Join StrangerFriend on the evening of December 13th to celebrate one of their most beloved activities: self-tying!!

    Madison now has its very own Self-Tying Jam at the FreyjaProject's Club space, and will take place every second Thursday of the month. Bring your rope, your hardware, and hang out with like-minded friends who have an interest in self-tying and self-suspending.

    The event will be whatever you want to make it! All hard points in the Club will be dedicated to casual self-tying workshopping or skill-sharing, to self-tying and self-suspension scening, to impromptu performances, and to the most ridiculous self-tying shenanigans you can think of. There will also be a relaxed social area for getting to know other attendees, and a completely optional mini-class at the beginning of each event for a refresher of rope technique and/or specific self-tying topics.

    Stranger will bring their own music playlist, but totally wants your music recommendations. :) If you'd like to bring dinner or snacks, that is also more than welcome. Stranger will also try to provide as much extra rope and gear as possible, but if you also have extra, feel free to bring it and share; that includes extra tripods.

    Individuals with any amount of rope experience or skill level are absolutely welcome. Individuals of all genders, bodily makeup and ability, and BDSM roles are absolutely welcome. Observers are absolutely welcome. Non-self-tying friends and supporters of self-tyers are welcome; please simply respect the event as a self-tying space (i.e., this isn't a space for extensive partner-tying; there are a whole lot of other awesome events in town for that! :) )

    Here is the Fetlife group for this recurring event. Please join to stay updated on future events, and feel free to post questions there or PM StrangerFriend!

    Please welcome Corinne Viner as our December Artist!

    Corinne Viner is a self taught artist from Sparks, Nevada who currently lives and paints in Madison, Wisconsin. She is much too ADD to settle on one art style and instead usually has three or four works in progress at any one time. This collection focuses on how sensual being human is, and each piece intends to celebrate our bodies and our kinks. She thanks Frejya Project and Wicked Lines for fostering art and artists in Madison to have a safe place to grow and develop. You can find Corinne and what she is currently up to on Instagram and Twitter @corinneviner. 

    The Reception will offer you an opportunity to meet the artist as well as enjoy some light refreshments and social time.

    This event is free and open to non members attending.


    It you want to attend the separate party later that night you will need to be a Freyja Member and purchase an event ticket by midnight the night before the event.

    What is the topic this month?

    Impact Play Basics with @Gregor!

    More detailed description coming soon!

    Presenter Bio: Coming soon!

    If you have an interest in teaching at TNGM events, please contact @lexical or @StrangerFriend! We're always working on finding more presenters for future workshops, so please visit the Workshop Poll thread and let us know what topics you'd like to see presented in the coming months!

    Who can attend?

    Anyone over the age of 18! Seriously, anyone***. Folks of all identities, orientations, expressions, genders, races, religions, abilities, and skill levels are welcome and encouraged to attend.

    While TNGM Munches and Socials are only open to folks aged 18-35 and their partners, TNGM Educational Events and Play Parties are open to anyone over 18! That might seem a little weird, but remember - TNGM is intended to provide a safe, consent-conscious space for individuals to learn and grow amongst their peers, to link them to the community as a whole, and to provide them with support and resources as they explore kink, BDSM, leather, and other adjacent topics. In short, we want to be sure that TNGM provides a space for younger folks, while also enhancing the Madison kink community as a whole. Think of TNGM Munches and Socials as an opportunity to meet and build relationships with your peers and TNGM Educational Events and Play Parties as an opportunity to bring those friendships along as we contribute to the community at large. It's gonna be awesome.

    ***Attendance at the Freyja Project requires either membership or guesting in by a member. See below for more information!

    How much does it cost?

    (No Cash Accepted at the Door!)

    The workshop itself is ONLY FIVE BUCKS! How amazing is that? You can attend JUST the workshop for FIVE DOLLARS, even if you are not a member of the Freyja Project! If you want to stay after the workshop for the play party you must be a member or guest of a member of The Freyja Project.

    The Freyja Project offers membership access at an incredibly affordable $15 A YEAR. That's it! Just $15 dues for access all year long! That's bonkers. In order to attend events, members have two options: Monthly Access Passes ($35 - free entry to the majority of events hosted at the center) or Day Passes ($10-15 - entry to an individual event). In other words, if you plan to attend 2 or more events at the Freyja within one month, it's most cost effective to simply purchase a Monthly Pass.

    Not a member of the Freyja Project? (I mean...Why not? Did I mention it's only $15 for the whole year?) Just wanna go one time to this awesome TNGM event (or one of many others held at the center? Not to worry. Just find a member to guest you in in advance (also $15)!

    You can find detailed information about membership and sign up easily online with the Freyja Project's website.

    For our first meeting of the new year, we will be bringing you "The DEFINING MOMENT: Getting What You Want Out of Kink" featuring Madison's very own GrayDancer!

    This class is a practical, step by step guide to fully realizing your kinky self. Starting from fantasy, Graydancer takes you through a process that gets you to that defining moment, the ineffable feeling of fulfillment when that fantasy is made real. Along the way you will also learn tools of risk-management, figuring out what aftercare is needed, and most of all answering the most important question: How can we do that again?

    Whether you’re into rope, leather, chains, or fuzzy bunny suits, the Defining Moment can offer you tools to take your play to a more visceral level, from a place of internal motivation rather than external. What do you want to DO? Rather than start with what you saw in a picture or book, let’s focus on the results you want. Whether you want to play for sex, for pretty, for pain, or some combination, the focus will be on how to DO what you want to do, using principles rather than step-by-step processes. It’s an interactive class with plenty of class participation, and demonstrations. The skill level of this class is appropriate for anyone from the rank beginner to intermediate and advanced, because of its focus on practical skills and principles-based instruction. This has been one of Graydancer’s most popular classes at venue after venue because of its value to kinksters of all levels and interests.

    About The Presenter:

    Graydancer has been teaching, performing, and advocating for kink and BDSM for over a decade. He has worked professionally in web, video, and social media for several clients ranging from to the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom to the Kink Academy. You can also hear Graydancer as a guest on various podcasts such as Polyamory Weekly and Dart’s Domain, or his own Ropecast (the longest-running kink podcast on the web). Gray was featured on Our America with Lisa Ling: 50 Shades of Kink which aired in January of 2013 on the Oprah Winfrey Network. While his roots lie in bondage, Gray’s focus has evolved over time to subjects such as power exchange relationships, improving consent practices, leather culture, and the educational aspects of kink. He was the first to apply Open Space principles to a kink event, creating GRUEs which have been held at over 45 locations in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. He also directs ROPECRAFT, a rope bondage convention that’s “Knot- for everyone.” Currently he resides in the Bondage Capital of the World, Madison, WI where he is working on becoming a total GILF.

    *You can drop into the Sanctuary starting at 2 pm to socialize while we set up the space. Meeting will begin at 2.30 pm. Dinner will follow the meeting at a nearby restaurant.

    NOTE: You do not have to be a member of the Freyja Project to attend this meeting. If you intend to attend Grind the evening of the meeting you will need to either have a monthly membership or buy your guest pass/ticket by Friday night at 11.59 pm. See for more information about membership and access to play events.*
