Rope bondage is an interesting phenomenon that straddles the line between kink and fetish. Kink is considered something outside the realm of normal vanilla sex and can include role-play, BDSM, impact play, and more. Fetish is more along the lines of something that’s not usually considered sexual—like feet or food—that someone needs during a sexual encounter. Rope bondage is used in kink for power exchanges sometimes, or in a role-play scenario where a dominant ties up a submissive, for example. But ropes themselves can be a fetish—something non-sexual that someone needs in order to experience arousal.

Rope bondage is a widely practiced but still somewhat taboo sexual activity. Rope bondage is an activity where a dominant person will restrict the movement of their submissive, use ropes and knots as a decorative outfit for their sub, or even just hang them from the ceiling—or wherever else is convenient! So many different types of rope bondage exist; just looking at the list can be exhausting. There’s American-style rope bondage, Japanese-style rope bondage (Shibari is the decorative rope-tying style, Kinbaku is the tight rope-tying style), and rope bondage meant for suspension.

 

Why Should You Try Rope Bondage?

There are so many reasons you might want to try rope bondage. But if you’re note already sold, take a look at my top five reasons to try rope bondage.

 

#1: Expand Your Horizons

Open-mindedness makes you better in bed—science back this up! A routine is great for many aspects of life: exercise, daily work, and bedtime. But sticking to a routine in the bedroom means that even if you’re not bored, your partner might be. So, put trying something new (like rope bondage!) on your to-do list, stat!

 

#2: Explore New Sexual Fantasies

If you’ve got some hot ideas in your head, don’t neglect them! Bringing your sexual fantasies to life helps you understand and reach new levels of pleasure. Plus, once you’ve acted them out, you can make room in your imagination for something new, hotter, and perhaps more extreme.

 

#3: Connect Deeply With Your Body

Many people find rope bondage to be grounding and calming. There’s something almost hypnotic about the repetitive, soothing motions made while tying knots. Plus, you really have to focus, so the process can really calm your mind.

On the other hand, if you’re the rope bunny (person who is being tied up), you have a lot to look forward to, too. Being restrained and suspended is also an almost out-of-body experience, but it’s more like an in-your-body-on-a-whole-different-level experience. If you’re a submissive, it can really fast track you into subspace. You’re so focused on your body, but your motion is restricted and out of your control. It’s intense and meditative.

 

#4: It’s Beautiful

There’s no doubt about it: rope bondage is aesthetically pleasing. If you haven’t seen how gorgeous rope bondage can be, you should probably do some NSFW Google searching right now. The pretty, restrictive lines, the symmetrical geometry it creates, and the look of bliss on your partner’s face—what’s not to love?

 

#5: You Can Build a New Level of Trust With Your Partner

There’s something so erotic about having your partner tied up and served to you, almost as if on a platter. You have total and complete access to them, no matter how much they may struggle. And, Shibari is one of my specialties. So, I understand completely the level of trust and the depths of intense pleasure that this form of bondage can bring to you.

A Few Tips Before Getting Started

Cleanliness is key here, as with most sexual activities. Wash your ropes in between partners as bodily fluids can accumulate. Also, keep rope shears nearby, just in case! You don’t want to have to leave someone all tied up to make a quick run for necessities. Always keep rope loose enough to insert two fingers between the rope and your submissive’s skin—you don’t want to cut off their blood flow.

For submissives, plan ahead! Grab a drink of water or run to the bathroom before the fun begins. You don’t want to have to take a break right as you’re perfectly bound. And, if you’ve recently had surgery or some other injury, it might not be the best time to seek out this fantasy. Wait until you’re fully recovered, and then dive into the wonderful world of ropes.

Remember, consent is the foundation of all sexual activities, and this is even more important for kinky scenes. It’s the only way you can be sure you and your partner don’t get roped into an activity you won’t enjoy (see what I did there?).
