Kinky Macrame - Rope Work Practice

As with any new undertaking, there are fun things to learn with BDSM.  This evening when I got home from work, J was sporting a rope gauntlet on one wrist: a sure sign that there was to be some rope work in my future.  <grin> After supper, we retired to our room and J pulled out some rope and got to work.  Here are some pictures of our practice session.

A wrist gauntlet - inside view

The instructions for the wrist gauntlet pictured here and below can be found on http://twoknottyboys.com  Go to the download section and look for "Rigger's Gauntlets" under the "Decorative Ideas" heading.

The knots can be lined up to create a diagonal line (like they did) or a straight line (like we did). 

This website is great for learning rope work.  It offers a range of free video downloads.  Each video takes you step-by-step, from finding the middle of your rope to finishing off.


The same gauntlet - outside view.



I liked the smooth look of the ropes on the outside of the wrist.  I could imagine actually wearing these gauntlets at an event, especially over a long sleeve black t-shirt or on bare arms.  I think it would look very cool!










Another rope work site that J is fond of is www.twistedmonk.com  Like the Two Knotty Boys, this site offers free video instruction on a variety of rope work techniques.  The two-column tie was part of our practice this evening.  You can find it by going to www.twistedmonk.com and clicking on "Instructional Videos," and looking for "Two-Column Tie".

It goes together quickly and looks pretty good.  My wrists were comfortable but quite secure.  The loop hooked around my thumb could be attached to a carabiner or to another piece of rope, making this a versatile sort of binding.


Basic chest harness from www.twistedmonk.com 

The last part of our practice session focused on the basic chest harness featured on the Twisted Monk site.  I really like this one!  It gently squeezes "the girls" making them very sensitive to any type of nipple play.  It's a comfortable harness and could be worn for a period of time quite easily.  Even over clothing, the squeezing sensation is quite pleasant.

I'm sure this won't be the last rope work post.  Of course there will be new harnesses, ties and techniques for us to practice and we do enjoy it, even without other play.

  1. I love the wrist gauntlets. They are so visually erotic and sensual.

    What do they feel like? It doesn't seem to be too tight.

  3. That's really cool.....I have to show my boyfriend and soon-to-be Master how to do this. He loves rope and all things to do with it, including tying people up. It looks really fun. Thanks for the idea!
