There are so many reasons to learn how to use bondage rope. The beloved BDSM practice of rope bondage is as versatile and creative as it is elegant — and did we mention it’s incredibly erotic?

Learning how to use bondage rope is a must for any bondage lover. If you’re a beginner, get started on your rope journey with our guide to the basics:

Choose the right rope. And by the right rope, we mean rope made especially for bondage. Bondage rope has a smooth texture and feels comfortable or even silky against the skin — we recommend trying different types to see which textures you prefer. Often, bondage rope also comes finished at the ends so that it doesn’t fray from use. (Bonus: bondage rope comes in a spectrum of colors, from bright jewel tones to black and beige.)

Learn bondage rope basics. Tying bondage rope is a special skill, different from typical knot tying. BDSM knots at their most basic have to be safe for the person being tied, and at their most intricate, they’re complex works of art.

Naturally, you should learn the basics first, using different sources if you can. Delve into bondage books by respected BDSM educators like Midori, Jay Wiseman, Lee Harrington, and Chanta Rose. See if your city offers any rope demonstrations, whether at an adult boutique or private club. If you can’t access a live demonstration, try watching a few tutorials on YouTube. While you’re learning, focus on simple knots like the single column tie (for tying a limb to an object) or double column tie (for tying limbs together). Save the elaborate hogties and shibori work for when you’re more experienced.

Stay safe. Hopefully, you’ll never have a safety problem, but they happen to BDSM vets as well as beginners. Follow basic safety guidelines by only using proper BDSM knots and never tying someone around the neck or joints. Keep paramedic scissors on hand (they’re specially designed to safely cut off clothing and straps). Remove the rope immediately if the tied person experiences numbness, swelling, discoloration or sharp pain.

Once you learn how to use bondage rope, you’ll be set on an endlessly fascinating path of erotic exploration. Can’t wait to get started? Browse our online selection of bondage rope and don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions. Shop our wide selection of bondage rope online.
