I don’t think I’d ever seen the Monkey Fetish tutorials before. They are gorgeous! I like that they are not really simple, obvious ties like a lot of the tutorials I’ve come across. Here are the ones I want to try:
Well I get more search engine traffic looking for how to do breast bondage than anything else. So I guess it doesn’t hurt to actually have a post on that topic. There is a good video up at Behind Kink showing how to tie both large and small breasts. Also the models talk about how it feels. I could take or leave the somewhat sleazy rope guy and his dubious ideas about humiliation but as an instructional it’s decent.
The other day I put a running hitch along my arm and thought, “Hey I could do up all four limbs this way.”
I decided to rewrite my profile for fetlife. I’m keeping the old one here for posterity.
Well I would really love some of that nice hemp or jute rope. The hippie in me is overly-fond of natural fibers, and the truth is that I don’t find tying my friends up in synthetics very nice for the same reason I don’t get into PVC fetish: petroleum is not sexy.
That said, processed bondage rope is really fucking expensive. My experiments with the nylon stuff have lead me to the conclusion that to tie up a medium-sized man I need at least 200 ft of rope. There is not much point in getting less than that, and I’m sure I could deal with having more. 🙂 At this point in my life I definitely can’t spend a month’s rent on rope. To tell the truth, I don’t know if I would ever be able to justify an expense like that. So I have been considering processing my own.
Maui Kink sells 3 kg of rope for $64. They say this is about 450 ft of rope. (Knowing still that rope shrinks with processing.) Assuming that’s in US$, that comes out to about 16¢ Canadian per foot. Compare that to CA$1.13 per foot for the TM stuff. (Shipping extra on both natch.) My time is not as valuable to me as my money.
I found a really good video (with a super cute lady named Fivestar in it who made a comment about being tied to her bike!!) of following instructions from Mike West regarding the processing of rope. Other than the awesome host of the video, I really appreciated that the washer and dryer being used were laundry-mat style, so discretion during all the washing and drying was worked on. I think that’s good because not all kinksters are rich IT people, it turns out! Here is another account from someone following the same instructions.
Instructables has some directions involving much less laundry. They also include a different idea of stretching the rope over sharp metal instead of just pulling it like is mentioned in Fivestar’s video.
Maybe when my loan comes in I will buy a spool of rope. I’m not sure, I’ll see.
