Some tips on buying Bondage Ropes and Tapes:

• Contemplate your restraint Preferences
Even before you go shopping, think about how you like being restrained or restraining. Tapes and robes are effective in different bondage positions and experiences. You might generally prefer one to the other.

For Beginners, it is better to use tape and work your way up to ropes as you gain more experience on bondage. Tape is easier to wrap and tuck straggly ends for a neat look. It is also easier to get out of in case you need to release your partner quickly. But, it is limiting on the positions you can achieve.

On the other hand, rope offers more elaborate twists to the sexy body of your submissive but it’s more difficult to untie safely. Unless you are already a seasoned pro and have learnt rope bondage, avoid sophisticated positions such as hanging or suspension. If anything goes wrong, the results can be tragic.  Always have a safe word. Something you wouldn't normally use. ( Mine is scooby doo!) 

Always have safety scissors on hand, just in case... You can purchase those here as well.


• Determine the Length:


The length suitability will depend on you level of experience, body size of your submissive and desired artistry. For tape, pick as long of a length as you can find  as you can cut to your desired length. 

For rope, pick medium sizes between 30 to 50 feet so it’s more manageable. Too long of ropes can be difficult to loop and secure safely. You also risk leaving straggly ends which can be risky if stepped on.


• Contemplate the thickness:


Go for thicker ropes and tapes to reduce the possibility of pinching and cutting through the skin. Thicker tapes have a smaller chance of rolling and forming strings that risk excessive constriction and blockage of blood circulation. Thicker loops are also more comfortable especially when used on elaborate suspension positions. However, avoid too thick of a rope as it can make it more difficult to tie into knots. Use your better judgement and experiment with the rope by itself before attempting to use it in play with your partner.


• Consider the material:


Ropes and tapes are made from different materials which make for various aesthetics and feel. Alongside with cleaning, determine your personal liking and material sturdiness.

 Nylon ropes are soft and stretchy. Cotton is soft and fluffy. They both create a smooth colourful caress on the body. You may even want to try something really soft and sturdy like Alpaca rope. Hemp ropes have a rough and scratchy feel. It is really a personal preference. Again, experiment... have fun.


For tapes you need to consider the material/ surface compatibility on the surfaces you want to stick. Also pay attention to coating temperature, exposure to chemicals and required time of adhesion. These factors determine the tape bondage quality and effectiveness.


For those who love water play, choose a material that is waterproof such as nylon (rope) or water based acrylic and silicone (for tape).


• Choosing the Colour:


One of the reasons bondage is so arousing is the aesthetic visuals created. Play with your imagination and get a colour that intrigues your sexual excitement. You might want to dress your partner in gothic black, maybe cherry red or a contrast of the two. Or maybe neon glows –in-the-dark are your turn on points. Be creative and intensify your exploration. What matters is that you both enjoy the ride.


Safety Tips:


Bondage is all sexy and arousing. However, know it is one of the highest risk activities ever devised for sexual stimulation. It is built on trust and the dominants ability to respect their partners play boundaries.

A gratifying play is based on the dominant’s precision to comfortably secure and pleasure their submissive while maintaining their integrity and health.

It is about trust, knowing and LISTENING to your partner. Not only their words but their body movements and facial expressions. PAY ATTENTION...


• When using ropes and tapes, make sure your submissive is restrained in comfortable positions.


• If suspended positions are preferred, use thick, padded and strong rope. Thin rope risk cutting and bruising your submissive.


• Be keen not to cut across joints or totally restrict your partner’s blood circulation. Always aim for the forearms, upper arms, thighs, and shoulders as they have no joints. Total blood restriction can cause blood clots or permanent tissue damage.


• Be careful on the neck. The neck is extra sensitive and constriction can cause breathing problems and poor blood flow to the brain.


• In case you notice discolouration (either skin turning blue or purple) or your partner complains of numbness and unbearable pain, release them immediately. Always keep a shear close in case you need an emergency quick release.


• Never leave your submissive unattended, and frequently confirm with them if they are comfortable and enjoying themselves.
