  1. Two with Rope

    This person may have some experience with Rope but it is obvious her experience is limited. We teach Rope all over the country and have attended MANY rope classes. She discusses using “smooth rope” Many rope people use Natural fiber rope (Hemp and jute) and that is not smooth. Many bottoms love the feel of the “rougher rope” on their bodies and they leave very nice (but temporary) rope marks. The rope in the picture looks to be a climbing or boat rigging rope…TERRIBLE for bondage. It does not hold knots very well and is stiff. In actuality. Smoother ropes have a higher likelihood of tighening than natural fiber.

    As to cleaning. It is NOT a good idea to wash natural fiber rope rope. It loses 10-15% of its strength with each washing. My bottom has her own rope that is only used on her…as do most people we tie. We have a public bag that is NOT used on areas with body fluid! Most say to just let the rope lay out in the sun for a couple days. The ultraviolet rays will kill most things. If we use a rope on a private area. I give the rope to the bottom.

    Tying in the Dark…Well like most things it is Risk Aware Consentual Kink. Most dungeons are dark. That is why, as a top, I constantly communicate, and check with people in my ropes. We have tied many people who have different conditions as well. There are different ties that can cover a variety of issues (fibro, surgeries, etc) You just have to be creative, swilling to adapt and have the skill to do so

    Hmmm – just pulled up the full article, and owe you my apologies, Two – that is not the picture I originally included with that article. Indeed, that pic does look like it was done with inferior rope! The picture I originally posted was this one –

      patricialynn, I just checked the email that had the article in it. It didn’t have a picture included with the article. Not sure if it was an error on your end or mine. I can change it for you now that I have one you’d prefer.
