Rope and Bondage Tutorials

I happen to be a very big fan of rope bondage since it can be a very inexpensive BDSM practice, it can be done almost anywhere with nothing more than the basic equipment, yet at the same time it can be one of the most powerful experiences your submissive can experience.  The ability to allow yourself the freedom to be bound can be very relaxing.  Ask both of my girls, they love it.

The simplicity of one of mankind’s oldest inventions being used in a creative, sensual and beautiful way is open to anyone and everyone willing to explore their sexual fantasies in a new way.  When doing rope bondage of any kind you will need a few things before you get started.

Most importantly is safety… Practice the knots until you can do them the same way everytime before you start working with another human being.  Once you start working with a sub, during a scene you will always want watch you partner closely for signs of numbness and/or limbs turning blue.  As your sub shifts in position the rope can become tight in places neither of you could have expected.

BASIC EQUIPMENT

Rope – As you play with the rope you will find you have your own preference for material, braid, and thickness.  If you’ve never had rope experience before, when you shop for your first set of rope you will want to feel it in your hands so avoid any rope that you can’t actually touch and caress a little before you buy.  Avoid rope that is scratchy or rough.  Try to find rope that feels soft and silky in your hands until you have more experience and start to explore with other materials.

I suggest that you get yourself at least 50 – 100 feet of some 3/8 inch thick nylon rope for your first rope set.    This size should keep your submissive comfortable while making the knots easy enough to untie.  With nylon it is easy to finish the ends so your rope does not fray.  Speaking of cutting and finishing your rope, when you buy new rope it tends to come longer than you will need so visit my rope care page before you get started (*insert link to care page here)

Sharp Stuff – ALWAYS keep a pair of safety scissors nearby.  In the event of an emergency your submissive and their health is more important than your rope.    Another thing you should carry is a very sharp pocket knife.

DO NOT use a knife on rope any where near skin in an emergency situation.  Your unexpected reactions or  your submissive squirming during an emergency situation could make the safe handling of a sharp knife near skin impossible.  Your knife should only be used to release your submissive from any rope that is stretching or pulling away from them.

A Willing Submissive – Of course no bondage scene would be any fun without a willing submissive.  Remember no matter what happens in a scene you should always have clear communication with your slave and an established safe word for when the scene gets too intense.  Always discuss your safe word(s) with  your submissive before you get started to remind them that they always have an escape route in the event that the experience becomes to intense for them to handle.

During an intense session forming complete thoughts and sentences can become difficult for some subs.  To ensure good communication with your slave always make sure they can give you all the information you need in one or two words.  To keep things simple, I like to use the stop light colors green, yellow, and red…

For Example

  • Green = Does it really need an explanation?
  • Yellow = I don’t want you to stop but please slow down or I will have to cry red soon.
  • Red = Please stop everything, I have reached and/or gone beyond my limits.

When it comes to your safe word system… Always trust your submissive to know what is best for them.  If your sub uses their safe word you should stop immediately and not push them any further.  In my experiences, I have seen many subs (especially beginners) push themselves further than even the dominant was willing to go before using their safe word.  It can be a personal challenge for many to not use their safe word until the very last ounce of strength has been taken from them.  So be prepared to release them as soon as they are ready.
