Bondage Rope

Rope Bondage is a kinky practice under the BDSM umbrella, wherein the dominant ties up their submissive. This activity establishes the power dynamic between the dominant and the submissive, making it arousing for both parties. The dominant derives pleasure from their partner’s full submission while the restrained sub gets turned on with the feeling of being one’s captive.

If you’re a beginner in rope bondage, a simple tying-up practice will do. But experts can already do highly-advanced rope bondage like Shibari which is the Japanese art of rope tying. It’s a very intricate tying technique, and veteran BDSM practitioners can suspend someone up in the air by doing this technique.

To do this kinky act, you’ll need a specialized rope; household ropes wouldn’t suffice and may only harm your sub. A specialized BDSM rope can be used to tie your sub into any position you desire (and agreed upon). In some cases, it can even work as a makeshift blindfold. You can also use the rope to cover up your sub’s entire body.

History of Rope Bondage

Rope Bondage, also known as Shibari, was derived from Kinbaku, an art form in Japan that involves artistic or erotic tying. It started in the late Edo Period (about 1600s to 1860s) when Seiu Ito started studying and researching Hojōjutsu, the art of binding a prisoner of war.

By the 1950s, Kinbaku became widely popular in Japan. Multiple magazines such as Kitan Club and Yomikiri Romance published the first sets of naked people in bondage ropes. By 1960, sadomasochistic shows involving rope bondage were created. These shows feature a sub being aesthetically tied by a rope master (Nawashi). This art form continued to grow, and by the 1990s, and the new term “shibari” emerged. It literally meant “to tie decoratively” and is now popularly used to describe the bondage art of Kinbaku.

As of today, shibari is now gaining popularity in the western audience. It became a part of the current pop culture, as BDSM-themed movies such as “Fifty Shades of Grey” became a millennial hit.

Types of Bondage Rope

If you’re new to the sultry world of rope bondage, it’s vital to know the different types of BDSM rope. This can help you find the rope that matches your preferences and skill level.

Bondage ropes are divided into two types. The first type is the natural rope. As the name implies, it’s made from natural materials. This type tends to have rougher textures and is great for experienced couples. Ropes under this type are Hemp, Linen (flax), Jute, Cotton, Silk, Bamboo, Coir, Manila, and Sisal.

The next type is synthetic rope. Ropes under this type aren’t made with natural materials and usually come in bright colors. What’s great about this type is that it’s usually a lot cheaper than the natural ones. But if you’re looking for ropes that have that grittier grip, then this type may not suffice for your preferences. Ropes under this type are Nylon (polyester, paracord), Synthetic Hemp (hempex), and Multifilament Polypropylene (MFP).

Care & Maintenance

Besides learning the basic bondage tying techniques, you need to equip yourself with the proper knowledge of cutting your ropes. If you’re doing sectional bondage, 2.5 up to 5 meters will do. If you would want the traditional length used in shibari, go for 7.5 meters. If you’re going for full-body bondage, cut it up to 10 meters.

As for the cleaning process, keep in mind that different types have different cleaning processes. When cleaning a hemp or polyester rope, you can wash it by either hand-washing or a washing machine. If you’re going to use a washer, knot the rope, put it inside an old pillowcase or tie-off bag, then put it inside the washer. Make sure to only use the shortest and gentlest cycle. Once you’re done, let it air dry for about two days. Unknot it after two days and then store it inside a pouch. As for cotton, silk, and bamboo ropes, you can only wash this type by hand. Use cold water and mild soap. Let it air dry.
