Guest Post: Three Reasons to Try Rope Bondage

I’m excited to announce a new guest blogger (or pair if you will): Black Pomegranate. Welcome to their first (and hopefully not last) post!

When Ms. Pomegranate and I teach rope bondage techniques, we often run into misconceptions about this style of BDSM play. Some people think it’s complicated, requiring detailed knowledge of knots or expensive rope kits. Others feel that bondage may not work for their bodies, having seen images of lithe bottoms holding athletic poses in difficult suspensions. We’ve even heard some players say that rope bondage takes too long or is boring.

None of these misconceptions about rope are true. In fact, rope is an outstanding addition to any kink repertoire. Here are three reasons you should try erotic rope bondage.

Rope is accessible  

Although rope scenes seem complex, they actually entail an elegant simplicity. The most important part of rigging bondage knots is that they don’t collapse or tighten when pulled upon. A simple square knot can create single or double column ties, which is used to bind wrists and ankles together. Square knot based ties can also securely tie a partner to a sturdy object such as a bed, chair or even a closed door. A couple lengths of bondage rope and the aforementioned ties can turn any bedroom into a de facto  playspace.

Wraps and hitches are two other common bondage techniques that can be used to accentuate or pleasure a partner’s body. Hitches can be used to create chest harnesses that provide great stimulation for breast. Wraps can create exquisite cock and ball torment.

Bondage suitable rope can be purchased from most sex toy retailers in a variety of materials like cotton, jute, hemp, nylon or silicone. These ropes can vary in price but usually cost from $10 to $120 dollars on average. A simple rope kit can be assembled by purchasing nylon rope from a hardware store for $20 dollars. Bandage scissors cost about $3 dollars, a necessity in case of emergencies.

Educational opportunities for rope bondage skills are readily available. Most major cities have public play spaces which offer introductory bondage classes. There are also books and online classes which are good learning resources. Google “bondage tutorial” to get started. The Black Pomegranate  also has a growing list of bondage resources. Any rope education should offer extensive information about informed consent and rope bondage safety.

When cost and practicality is considered, rope bondage is a very accessible type of kink play.

Rope is body friendly

Rope is for everyone, regardless of gender, orientation, body type or limitation. Rope is incredibly versatile, literally adapting to the body of the rope bottom. Any bondage tie can be modified, to make it easier or more challenging. For example, rope can simulate handcuffs and worn comfortably when compared to metal.

There is a caveat, not all bondage position works for every body type. However, changing a bondage scene doesn’t diminish the fun. Suspensions are popular in the kink world, but this type of edge play isn’t practical for everyone. A floor bondage scene can be just as fun and engaging as a suspension, offering a greater opportunity to connect. Some of the world’s best rope bondage artists perform simple ties and craft amazing scenes. There is some form of rope bondage that will work for you and your partner.

Rope creates connections  

Rope scenes are tactile, allowing us to connect with partners through touch. Consensual bondage is a process of exploring your partner’s body. After all, tying requires touch. Rope literally brings people closer together. All depending on your personal dynamic, rope is intimate, even sexual. Rope creates powerful physical sensations similar to other types of BDSM play. When rope creates the right connection, it becomes a scene unto itself.

The connective benefits of rope bondage are more than physical. Bondage invites partners to have an ongoing dialogue. Rope has a unique kind of power exchange, where one partner takes a degree of control over their partner, who is vulnerable. This requires a level of trust, which is intrinsically derived from open, honest communication and consent.

These are just a few reasons to try erotic rope bondage. We encourage you to explore and enjoy the all the benefits tying offers. Play safely and keep it kinky.
