All Tied Up! A Bondage Rope Guide

Mention the words bondage rope and most people assume you will follow up those words by kidnapping them and taking them to your dungeon to do despicable things to them. That is, of course, not the case.

One of the greatest things about bondage rope is how versatile it is, meaning you can use it in the bedroom as much as you like. It doesn’t have to just be about pain and suffering, and can actually be used to bring about a huge amount of pleasure.

Bondage rope has been specially designed to be softer than other ropes, while also being durable. It can be pricey to buy, but if you want to try bondage without rope burn marks on you or your partner, it is the best solution.

We have put together a brief guide to using bondage rope. Read it and let us know what you think in the comments!

Tie and tease

If you are just starting out with bondage, then using bondage rope in a tie and tease scenario might be the best way to ease into it. You won’t be going all out, while you still get the chance to experiment a little with domination and submission.

Tie and tease can be done anywhere. All that is required is that you or your partner is tied up somewhere and teased for as long as you can withstand. Whether this is in the bedroom with your hands and legs tied to the bedposts or it is in the living room to a chair is completely up to you.

To start with, why not team tie and tease with something you enjoy doing anyway? You could perform oral on your partner while they are tied and unable to move, or you could perform a lap dance.

Whatever you wish to do while your partner is tied is completely up to you. The point of tie and tease is to make them desperate and beg for you to give them what they want. It can be a lot of fun.

Bondage styles

There are many different styles of bondage, with the most popular being suspension, speed, Western, and Japanese (otherwise known as Shibari).

Western bondage tends to strictly be for restricting movement and rarely leads to sex. This is why it is so popular with tie and tease scenarios, although it is often also teams with sexy accessories to turn you on.

As for Shibari and Japanese bondage, it can take a lot of time to learn the complicated knots and ties used in this form. Unlike Western, there is a focus on leaving them bottom (whoever is being tied) open and ready for intercourse. Having sex while they are tied up can be a huge turn on, and if you tie the ropes in the correct places they will have knots rubbing at their sensitive erotic zones all over their body.

Speed bondage is perfect for fantasies that revolve around non-consensual scenarios, though obviously the people taking part are consenting adults. The aim it to tie your partner up as quickly as possible to make sure they cannot escape. With this, the bottom will also be fighting against you to maintain the illusion of victim, which can heighten the situation.

Suspension bondage is when you tie your partner in such a way that their body is supported by the ropes and they are free from the ground, bed, or chair they were previously on. If you get to grips with it properly, you can actually create your own sort of sex swing to use in an erotic scenario.

Things to remember

Bondage can be a lot of fun, if you learn how to do it properly and have a consensual partner to try it out on. That said, there are some important things you should remember before trying it out.

It is important to discuss the topic of bondage beforehand to ensure you and your partner are both clear on what you want.

If you will be acting out an erotic scenario, make it clear what is and isn’t accept, and make sure you talk about any fears you have to clear the air.

When it comes to bondage rope, practice makes perfect. Try tying knots in the rope before you use it to ensure you have got to grips with the material. There are many different styles of knots you can use, so don’t be afraid to experiment. It is better to try it out before and get it right than doing it on a whim in the bedroom and getting it wrong!

The most vital thing you need to remember is the safe word you set. Make it a word that you are unlikely to say accidentally in bed, and make it clear to your partner that when you use that word, you want to stop immediately. If things get a little too intense for either of you, you should be able to say it without worrying.
