I’m cypher - rope bunny, masochist, submissive, scholar and artisan. While I’ve been involved in kink for most of my adult life, I entered the public scene in 2011, and it wasn’t long after that I begun seeing Nawarei, my partner, rigger, sadist, cat co-parent, and love. With Nawarei, rope and the Sydney rope community because an integral part of my life, and I’ve spent the last several years regularly modeling in workshops and weekly classes, occasionally performing, and more often just doing what-it-is-that-we-do at event across Sydney, as well as further afield. In that time, I’ve been lucky enough to come to also call the amazing Succubus a rope partner, and Precipice a firm friend and confidant.
If you’re wondering what exactly what-it-is-that-we-do consists of… well, there’s rope of course, but it’s never just rope. Rope is the primary means by which I express my kink-self, and perhaps the most powerful means by which I connect - to my partners and to that self. As a submissive, I give myself to my partner, to their control and their desires. As a masochist, I embrace the element of those the desires that are sadistic, to experience pain because someone I love, who loves me, wants it that way, and in their wanting it, I want it, and of course, they only want it because I do… a beautiful paradoxical synergy. And perhaps most fundamentally, as a person, I connect, I let go, I’m pushed to the edge, and at the same time, brought to my center.
In my time in the kink scene, it hasn’t been unusual for people to ask my about submission, polyamorous, and bottoming in rope. While I am aware that my experience and point of view is not universally applicable, I am nevertheless the motivated to continue contributing a view from the bottom to kink education, and in doing so, continuing to learn, explore and grow, in this amazing world we build for ourselves.
