Rope Connections

Exploring rope bondage and BDSM

Thanks For The Feedback!

I recently emailed all the people who were on my mailing list about what I can do to help you guys further; I think it’s great to have that interaction and build a bit more communication with you all.

I had a bunch of really great responses, and that has been enormously helpful. Because I got that feedback, I can now deliver more content in line with your interests and what you want to learn next; and sometimes, if it’s stuff I don’t already know, then it gives me a bit more direction for learning; I can learn it for you guys, make it simpler, and then share it with you all.

It’s a great win-win; I end up learning more rope stuff and testing it out, and that makes learning easier for you guys as well! I can even share my mistakes, so you can learn what NOT to do; several people have indicated that they found that helpful.

It’s sometimes a little bit embarrassing for me, but hey; if it helps you guys, I’ll continue doing it.

Other Things I’m Working On:

I’m currently working on setting up a shopping cart and sales page etc for Rope Bondage The Smart Way here on Rope Connections. I’ve had a bunch of messages indicating that Amazon is a pain in the ass for people to leave reviews on, and I’ve also had requests for different formats than just the Amazon one.

So basically I’m going to try and set up a system that allows people to purchase directly off the site, and hopefully receive multiple different formats in one easy download. There’s quite a bit of work involved, so I appreciate your patience, guys – I’m working on this every morning before I go to my day job, and I’m optimistic that it will be up and running in a couple of weeks.

Additional Material For the Single Column Tie

One of the responses I got back from emailing all you guys was a request from a guy named Tim for a video showing how to do the Burlington Bowline, going both over a limb and under a limb.

Here you go Tim! I’m also placing this on my “First Tie You Should Learn” post, in addition to the picture tutorial. I hope it helps!

Rope Suspension: Applying Systematic Learning

Today I’m going over the results of a rope suspension learning session from a few weeks ago. I have two excellent reasons for documenting this – one of them is for me, and one of them is for you.

How To Tie A Box Tie For Suspension – Pete Riggs

Lately I’ve been relearning suspension practices from the ground up,  due to a long period of spending more time writing than practicing or actually doing suspension. Shortly, Blue and I and a bunch of our local friends are going to be attending a workshop on Japanese suspension; this tutorial video shows the base of the “90% Takate Kote” or box tie that we’re informed we’re going to be using. This isn’t my video; I’m effectively curating it for my own use and for others who are interested in practicing the functional base of the box tie or takate kote. Many thanks to Moco for creating it; he’s done a brilliant job describing the mechanics of it.

Consensual Non-Consent: How To Play Rape Your Partner

Today I’m discussing consensual non-consent, because that’s been coming up a lot in my relationship of late. This post will contain lots of trigger words and ideas, including rape; actually, lots of that; so if you’ve had a bad experience, it’s likely to be like a punch in the face. Think twice before clicking; for some of you it might not be wise. Continue at your own risk.

How To Create A Simple Home Dungeon For BDSM

Today I’m discussing a very versatile piece of equipment for practicing BDSM in the home, and which comes a lot of additional compound benefits. I can absolutely promise that this will provide some very good ideas for play or for your own home dungeon; how you use those ideas will be up to you. I do have to say though, that I’m very excited about this piece of equipment; and I’m already having a hell of a lot of fun using it. It’s been a very fun week!

Rope Bondage The Smart Way Preview: Fun and Games With Crotch Ropes

This post is taken directly from some of the new material in Rope Bondage The Smart Way. There’s quite a lot like it in there, but I chose this particular piece to offer for free because it’s quite a lot of fun, and is useful for all sorts of things (Also, Blue is pretty hot. I’m enjoying showing her off, and I’m proud of her inventiveness).

I wasn’t planning to do a crotch rope tutorial, because honestly they’re pretty easily found on the Internet.

However, due to a recent and very fun occurrence, I’ve decided that in conjunction with the right information, they’re so freaking valuable that I should most definitely not miss them out. That would be a terrible plan. You DEFINITELY deserve the opportunity to enjoy this. If you read to the bottom of the post, you might just learn a very useful new trick.

Introducing Blue

Blue has already been featured on this blog, in the post about silk or satin robes, which I highly recommend as a bondage accessory, by the way. And she’s going to be on the blog quite a bit more, so I thought it was time for an official introduction.
