Rope Bondage Basics

This week’s kink guide is focusing on all the basics of rope bondage. What is rope bondage, you ask?

Rope bondage, in a nutshell, is the act of enjoying power play (dominant and submissive role play) with the use of ropes. There are many different kinds of ropes and knots one can employ during bondage rope roleplay and each person is particular to what he/she may like.

The Ropes:

Jute, hemp, cotton, silk, and linen are all natural materials which you can purchase to use in rope bondage. Other types are nylon, polypropylene and parachute cord which are all synthetic rope options.  Natural fibers are usually better options for beginners as they tend to be softer and more malleable against the skin. That said, they’re also much less stretchy than synthetic ropes which allow submissives more room to wiggle around. The wiggle room helps prevent circulation so just keep that in mind if you plan on using natural fibers as they don’t allow as much wiggle room despite being softer. One other thing to be aware of are rope burns which can easily occur with any rope material. Materials you want to avoid due to the danger of cutting off circulation and doing nerve damage to yourself and/or your partner include cable ties, cables, bungee cords, and sharp edge plastics. These are considered dangerous materials to use as they are much more likely to cause harm.

The Average Rope Cuts:

  • 5 Meters for Hand and Feet Rope Ties
  • 10 Meters for Small Bondage Ties (1/3 or 1/2 body ties)
  • 20 Meters are usually enough for Full Body Bondage Ties

The Knots:

  • Square Knot, Hitch (half, clove, anchor), Slipping Reef Knot, French Bowline Knot and more. There’s a more comprehensive explanation of knots here.

Different Uses for Rope Bondage:

There are many different ways you utilize rope bondage. One way is as a kind of discipline training for the submissive and encourages obedience. The loss of control for the sub will allow them to truly submit to their dominant. It can also serve as a form of punishment, predicament (how did I get here? 😉 ), and general restraints to restrict movement during any number of role play scenarios. They all have different effects during role play and should all be explored with agreed upon parties.

Rope bondage is a great way to further explore a dominant and submissive relationship, but it pays to be educated on each aspect of the role play ahead of time. This ensures the safety and comfort of both partners during said roleplay which allows more freedom to truly let go, explore, and enjoy the pleasures of a bdsm arrangement.

Good Luck!

What is BDSM?

If you already love the concept of BDSM, then you may be familiar with many of the items below, but you may still want to check them out as we have great prices on all your favorite items and some future favorites you don’t even know you love yet! If you are unfamiliar with BDSM, let me explain. The concept of BDSM is composed of two or more individuals who use power play to inflict pain and pleasurable experiences on one another to create sexual tension, ecstasy & release. The letters BDSM stand for Bondage, Discipline, Dominance, Sadism & Masochism. Although many use the practices of BDSM for experimental role playing, some might even consider it a complete lifestyle.

In BDSM, trust is a key factor because the roles of Master/Mistress and Slave are the most common used during this type of roleplay which requires the Master/Mistress to dominate/control the Slave and for the Slave to submit. Other names for these roles are Dominant/Top role & Bottom/Submissive role. Some partners in a relationship may choose to always hold the same roles while other may switch roles periodically. For each role, many activities that may include pain, submission, begging, restraints, humiliation and more are played out during times agreed upon known as sessions or scenes. Although most times, sexual interactions result in the power play, it is not vital for a session of BDSM.

Not to be confused with any real kind of sexual violence or assault, BDSM usually follows one of two basic codes: “SSC” or “RACK.” “SSC” stands for Safe, Sane & Consensual, which means that all acts are based on Safe, Sane & Consensual agreements of all parties involved. In slight contrast, “RACK” is a more extreme agreement meant for the more experienced BDSM lover which stands for Risk Aware Consensual Kink and provides that all parties agree upon things that can or cannot take place during a session, agree to the use of a safe word if needed, and the idea that each party is more responsible for their own well being than a safe agreement . Some prefer “RACK” as a more intense option for BDSM as it is much less predictable than “SSC” and, within the limit agreements made beforehand, can push boundaries further and has a level of apprehensive spontaneity often not shared with “SSC.”

It is up to you and your partner’s discretion which style of BDSM you will undertake. We recommend you consider safety precautions before embarking on any sexual journey together and that they are made with strong bonds of trust and with the intentions of experimental pain/pleasure as your ultimate goal.

Pleasure Weapon of Choice

If you’re a mistress who loves her riding crop, we have several cute styles including the Little Angel Crop & Star Crop that you can find in the Whips, Paddles & Crops section on our site. The same goes for the Paddles & Whips I have chosen so check out the whole category if you are undecided on which to choose. Each crop, paddle or whip has it’s own style, character or theme so it can go with all of your outfits, costumes or other accessories. There are plenty of options for everyone’s taste!

Gags & Restraints

Whether restraints or gags or both will be used during your session with your partner, they are definitely pieces worth looking into. Restraints often make the tension more realistic for the submissive and the power play all the better for the dominant. Gags create the mood for the sub while exacting a sense of humiliation and suffering toward them for the dominant person of power. Again, there are many options so check out more Gags or Restraints in their respective sections if you want more choices!

While these little metal clamps are not for everyone, for that special owner, they could just be the perfect addition to your scene! Whether you’re the sub or dom in the situation, they can be greatly exciting for both parties. Check out more Clamps & Other Bondage Accessories here.
