Episode 03-20: The Knotty House

Wanna know more about our guest on this episode?

The Knotty House is a Black, Femme-founded, Femme-focused, non-traditional BDSM house, led by The Founding Four (Knotty Lotus, Alley Cat, Plush Bunnie, Neffie Khaos), centered on Blackness, rope bondage, body diversity, education, and pleasure. The Knotty House’s vision is to cultivate a more diverse representation in the BDSM community, especially for those who participate in the art of rope bondage. Our mission is to promote the representation of Black people, diverse bodies, and diverse genders in the rope bondage community; to foster a community among Black Rope Tops and Rope bottoms; to provide education to those seeking to learn best practices from Black femme Rope Tops and Rope bottoms; and to promote a space where The Knotty House members collectively engage in educational opportunities to further their craft. Anytime you engage with The Knotty House you can expect to GET TAUGHT, GET TIED, and GET TURNED ON.
