Mr Nice

Mr Nice

I am not Mr Nice.

When it comes to teaching I am not.

I do do my best to be Mr Patient, Mr Understanding & Mr Informative. But let’s be honest, you, I hope, didn’t hire me to be your friend, you hired me to improve your bondage.

Bondage is serious and can be seriously dangerous so I take teaching bondage seriously.

I also take very seriously the responsibility of teaching. If you have a good time in a lesson that’s just great, I hope you do. But that is not my goal. My goal is that you go away doing better bondage than you were before the lesson.

If you’re making mistakes I’ll do my best to be Mr Tactful about it. However I will not be Mr Flattery, I will not deceive you into thinking that you’re doing better than you are. Nor will I fill you with a false sense of confidence or accomplishment because I’m not Mr Disingenuous.

I will not teach you beyond your ability, because I am not Mr Irresponsible.

If you are not serious about wanting to learn, do not come to me. There are plenty of teachers who will make you feel good about yourself regardless of your ability. Go to them by all means if that is what you’re after. Personally in lessons I’m not trying to be Mr Likeable.

I will not praise that which is not praiseworthy.

will do my best to improve your rope as much as I am able. I am I hope Mr Conciencious.

I am and can be many people.

But!

I am not Mr Nice.

About the Author:

WykD_Dave (Dave Rickman) is a UK-based shibari bondage enthusiast, who now teaches and performs internationally accompanied by his partner Clover. He started exploring bondage 27 years ago and was autodidact for the first 17 years, until a lesson with shibari professional Osada Steve changed his way of tying. Dave loves Japanese style rope work, and decided to dedicate himself to this. “It isn’t about the rope, it’s about the expression, the look in the eyes, the hopelessness, the agony”. Now, Dave & Clover teach and perform all around the world. He takes great pleasure in seeing people get it and open their minds to what rope bondage can really be. “Not just a means of restraint but a much deeper and personally connected experience than any other I’ve ever found.” Running into Dave means running into his lovely partner Clover. She is very passionate about shibari bondage too, she models and performs, as well as makes impressive photos of Japanese rope work done by Dave. Her photography focuses on the feelings involved in rope play, not just the pretty ties, and she tells stories with her pictures. Dave: “Of course Clover’s a huge part of everything. Without her photography would people ever have noticed?”
