Unfortunately, the anonymously sourced stuff I got has an annoying tendency to shed fibres

And tossa especially, because it’s highly durable with low maintenance. Exactly what I need. Nylon Bondage Rope. I don’t actually own any of this stuff, because I’ve never felt the need. It is by far the cheapest useful rope I’ve ever come across. Pros:. That is, the colors will be more muted, less brilliant. Con: More expensive. Nylon is nicely smooth and comfortable as well, but it has very low tooth, so you need to use surgeon’s knots instead of square knots and any half-hitch style knot should be done three times instead of two. (If you don’t, your partner may be able to manipulate the tie and wriggle out, and rope bottoms kind of hate that.

Small knots; sits flat over skin. It comes in a range of different colours (I like black). You can spend ages trying to unpick those things, which leads to swearing and frustration and a general lack of cool. The times when I’ve felt it most likely that I would need to use safety scissors to get someone out of rope, have all been times when I’ve been using this kind of cotton rope. However, once I removed the core, that changed things considerably (If you want to know how to remove the core, send me a message or something and I’ll update). Pros.

Pro: Less expensive. Pro: Perfectly fine for most types of bondage (other than suspension). And to be honest, I’d much rather be helpful. So I’m going to go into the pros and cons of a few different ropes. So, to sum up the whole post:. At the moment, my two favourite ropes are the Twisted Monk Hemp for bedroom ties, and Tossa Jute for absolutely everything else. Cons. This is a very thin plastic webbing; it is not something you want to get too close to a naked flame, because it will melt.

It feels basically like nylon rope, but is nowhere near as pricey. When I last used it in a lesson, the model exclaimed over how nice it felt. I hope this post was useful for people wanting to learn about the different types of rope! Also, one last note – in addition to your rope kit, I highly recommend a fun new toy I got in 2019, which combines very well with bondage. Different ropes have different advantages, different pros and cons. What you like will very likely not be what someone else likes.

And tastes and priorities may change, which is cool. Mine certainly have: I went from feeling “so-so” about hemp to loving it, just by getting a different supplier. The same goes for this as the other synthetic ropes with regards to friction; you will need to use knots. Summary:. Many may be satisfied with cotton. And tastes and priorities may change, which is cool. Nylon at Bunnings. Pros:. I’m not actually a dick like that. I realize that what I just wrote may be true, but it’s not actually useful.
