Beginner's Guide To Rope Bondage

Beginner's Guide To Rope Bondage

Rope Bondage encompasses a wide range of techniques, each one more complex that the next. With rope bondage however, there are basic techniques designed for beginners that ease them into the play and help them familiarize themselves with the whole game. A medium sized rope is always recommended as it is easier to manipulate and a whole lot safer than thin ropes.

  • Choice of rope

Material composition of the rope may be natural fiber or synthetic fiber. With natural fiber, there will be fewer knots required as it grabs better, is machine washable if placed in a porous bag and is great for suspension purposes as it does not stretch much. However, the natural fiber ropes are expensive and difficult to dye. Synthetic fiber ropes are cheaper, easy to die and work well with most types of bondages. Natural fiber ropes tend to be porous, so ensure that you never use them on multiple partners. For synthetic fiber ropes, always ensure that the strands are non-porous, and even then always sanitize before every use.

Rope thickness is also a factor to consider as the different thicknesses exert different levels of pressure on the skin. Thin ropes have a light strand and although it is easy to knot especially for delicate knots, the pressure exerted by the knots is higher and therefore a greater chance of bruising. Medium ropes are great for general use as the medium thickness allows for versatility in different knots and applications and the pressure exerted is a bit more distributed reducing risk of bruising. Thick ropes may be difficult to knot and prove bulky once successfully knotted. However, in some situations they are highly recommended as they can be very comfortable.

  • Cleanliness

Dirt and particles get trapped within the strands of the rope and if left to fester they may lead to infections if they come into contact with broken skin. To prevent the occurrence of such mishaps, always ensure that the rope is clean before use.

  • Safety Precautions

Bondage is very risky and safety is of the utmost importance when indulging in your fantasy. First and foremost, never ever attempt to engage in techniques that are above your skill level. As a beginner, master the ground bondage techniques first before indulging in suspension bondage techniques.

Always ensure that the knots do not exert undue pressure against the following vital areas; radial nerve, brachial plexus, wrists, femoral artery and all nerves and veins in the neck. Nerve damage is a serious risk and avoiding these areas ensures that you are less likely to get serious injuries that may even turn fatal.

For tops, always ensure that the ties can be undone quickly in an emergency and always communicate with your bottom to ensure that the ties are comfortable. It is advisable to keep a pair of flat scissors on hand in case of emergencies, as untying knots may take too much precious time. To ensure maximum safety, never leave your partner’s side for as long as they are tied up to ensure that there is prompt response if anything goes wrong.

For bottoms, be sure to be hydrated and well fed before the session, and please be sure to use the restroom before you start. If you are meeting the other person for the first time, make sure that there is an experienced rigger in sight to help if anything seems amiss. Trust is of the ultimate importance since there will be more action when you are tied up. Make sure to communicate about the sensations in your body if you feel even slightly uncomfortable.

Rope Techniques

As a beginner stick to the simple ties that allow you to undo them with ease. The square/reef knot is great if you need to tie the loose ends of the rope together. For the wrists and ankles, the bowline knot is perfect as it is never too tight; easing your mind as there is no danger of any circulation problems developing. The boa knot is great when you need your partner tied against a pole. Its simplicity is great and it also does the job remarkably well. However, never use this knot for suspension bondage.
