Kinky Life Drawing Class

They do things a little bit differently in Toronto. I mean, if you’re going to hiring nude models anyway for your life drawing class, why not hire bondage models and get a bit of press buzz?

She’s young, fox-like, innocent, her arms bound tightly behind her back, twisted ropes digging into the soft flesh beneath her breasts.

Behind her, a second woman in red knickers and black elbow-length gloves raises a leather whip, poised to strike.

I swallow, and raise my pencil to the paper. But I can’t for the life of me remember a single thing from high school art class. I’m here in Studio B of the Lower Ossington Theatre for the regular Tuesday-night Keyhole Sessions, and from the moment the models reveal several thick coils of rope and sawed-off metal poles, it’s clear that this isn’t your typical life drawing class.

Good rope work, Robichaud tells me, is always comfortable and avoids sensitive areas like the neck and insides of the wrists.

“It feels great,” says the model, a theatre student, who twists around to examine herself in the floor-to-ceiling studio mirrors. “Totally digging the ropes.”

She strikes a playful pose, sticking her tongue out at the class, and I bite back a wicked grin. I feel like I’m back in eighth grade looking at naked pictures of Angelina Jolie with the Google safety off.
