Rope for bondage

Rope for bondage
Rope is one of those tools that no BDSM enthusiast can live without. Rope is featured widely in kinky photos, porn, BDSM art and even kinky stories. If you want to add rope to your BDSM toolbox but aren’t sure what type of rope to choose for BDSM, this guide is for you.

Types of rope bondage

There are different types of bondage that utilize rope, here’s a quick overview: Decorative rope bondage is used to dress up the sub in the rope and not so much to restain him or her. Rope underwear, corsets and harnesses are often used for this type of bondage. Floor bondage is a type of rope bondage where the sub is tied up with rope but remains on a surface, such as the floor of a bed. Suspension bondage is the most extreme type of rope bondage. In suspension bondage, the dom ties up the sub and then suspends him or her in the air so that they are only held up by rope. Not all types of rope are suitable for all types of rope bondage. Knowing what type of rope to use for each kind of bondage is key to having an enjoyable and safe BDSM experience with your partner.

What should I look for in a BDSM rope?

There are a few things that you should consider when looking at the rope for BDSM. First of all, there’s rope strength and durability, which is extremely important if you’re planning to engage in suspension bondage. There’s also friction and texture. Be sure to choose a rope with the right texture, as rope that’s too rough can easily damage your sub’s skin. The rope also shouldn’t be too smooth, as if the friction is too low, your knots might tighten or slip. Finally, you should also consider the rope’s flexibility and stretch.

Bondage rope types

Nylon rope - one of the top choices for rope bondage beginners

Nylon rope is a great choice if you’re a beginner in rope bondage, as this rope it quite cheap and easy to find in any hardware store. This rope is also very soft, making it comfortable for subs and has great strength and durability characteristics, which make it suitable for suspension bondage. On the downside, this rope has low friction, so you should make sure that it doesn’t slip or tighten when tying knots.

Polyester rope for BDSM

Polyester is another synthetic material that’s used for rope bondage, although it’s less popular than nylon. The upsides of polyester rope are its price, durability and strength. At the same time, it can feel quite rough against the sub’s skin and it’s not very flexible.

Jute rope - the top choice for shibari bondage

Jute rope is the classic choice for shibari rope bondage. This rope is very flexible, has a high level of friction and it’s very strong, which makes it suitable for both floor and suspension bondage. At the same time, this rope has low durability.

Hemp and linen ropes for bondage

Help rope has characteristics that are very similar to jute rope but it’s easier to find in stores and it has a very unique smell. It’s also heavier than jute rope, while linen rope is also very similar to jute and hemp rope but it’s much lighter than both of these materials.

Bamboo and silk ropes for bondage

Both silk and bamboo ropes are very expensive and hard to come by, as they are considered to be luxury ropes. They have the best characteristics of all-natural or synthetic ropes but expect to pay quite a high price for the extremely high quality of these ropes.

Cotton rope - an excellent natural rope for beginners

Cotton is another great rope material for beginners. The advantages of this rope are its price and availability, friction, flexibility and stretch. It’s also soft and gentle on the sub’s skin. However, this rope is not durable or strong, so you shouldn’t use it for suspension bondage.
