Hitchin’ Bitches San Jose Bay Area Hookah Smoke & Rope Social – October

This is our casual monthly gathering skill share between all Hitchin’ Bitches while in a relaxing hookah smoke friendly atmosphere. This is not as regimented as the skill share on 2nd Sundays as it is centered around lounging near a hookah, socializing, and is a fundraiser. We would like to invite anyone who wants to support our mission of empowering women with rope. Men should come partnered with a top or bottom. We are making this exception to our usual guidelines to allow as many people as possible to support our regimented female top Skill Shares at Billy DeFrank and Center for Sex & Culture. This may be casual, but there will still be some sharing ideas, problem solving together, riffing with rope, and generally rope jamming together.


September Events!


Date & Time: Sunday, Saturday 10, 2017 · 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM  
Location: Billy DeFrank LGBT Community Center, upstairs, Room A

938 The Alameda, San Jose, CA 95126

Cost: $10 Donation, no one will be turned away for lack of funds
Dress code: Whatever is most comfortable for tying/being tied. Topless nudity allowed.

This is our monthly gathering to induce passionate skill sharing between all Hitchin’ Bitches. (We are alternating skill share locations with a TBD location in San Jose – do note that this month we will be at the Center for Sex & Culture in San Francisco.) We spend a few hours a month in shared lab time. This includes asking questions, sharing ideas, problem solving together, following along with others, riffing with rope, and generally rope jamming together.

This event is made possible by the contributions of the Center for Sex and Culture and Midori!

Seeking Some Support

You may have noticed that your super fun awesome excited (clearly excited) HB leads are running out of time to give supporting this group. We adore and love Hitchin’ Bitches and are going to ensure it stays alive and well.

That being said, we could use some help! A few areas in which you can help and be a part of the team, whether it’s for a month or indefinitely. Just let us know as you wish.

Pop onto Fetlife and shoot us a message

Tees Available via HB Atlanta

Show some HB price and support the Atlanta chapter while you’re at it!

Atlanta has been a bit ‘homeless’ for a few months now and are working on securing a deal with a local studio but need to ensure cashflow is at a premium to do this!

And thus, the TSHIRT/HOODIE/TANK drive begins:

Also, has a unisex size option for the snazzy gentleman in your life that wishes to show his undying support and love for Hitchin’ Bitches. They have a few styles that say different things.

Folsom St Fair Search


Fall is coming upon us quick! We are looking for someone that might want to lead a roving Hitching Bitches gang around Folsom Street Fair.

This will not take a huge coordination effort, just set a time and place for people to meet, express the plan / intent for the day, and promote the heck out of it — then go to the fair and live it up HB style!!

The leads are happy to help bounce ideas around with you, lend our social clout and advertise via HB, and generally help you get this baby up and rolling. It would be awesome for us to be a roving bandit of ladies with rope – we can roam from one bondage space to the next, wrapping up folks along the way.

Interested? Tweet at us or Ping us on Fetlife.
