Pain is an interesting thing, bondage does indeed hurt. Its not for you if pain freaks you out or you can’t deal with being confined in tight situations. There’s no escaping a solid tie on your own.
Pain is its own kind of drug, kind of like tattoos and piercings for many people but unlike them its not a permanent medium in its results. Its an intense concentrated feeling for varied lengths of time and the level of pain depends on how extreme the tie. Once you are tied up the pain escalates & then hits a plateaux where you kind of float off. Everyone has different reactions so there is no one experience fits all.
I kind of trance out when getting tied up, it’s the beauty of not needing to be in control & trusting someone else to do the work securely. I especially love crazy suspensions as they’re so freeing.
I got into bondage by accident, tripping over an amazing rope Masters work who is well known in the US and dropping him a line if he needed anyone for one of his ties up in BC. He asked if I had ever been tied before and when I said no then he recommended people that he’d worked with before & we met up and so began the journey into the art of rope bondage.
Hello peeps, first blog comment! As the one in the rope on this site I gotta say that it’s a good idea to know the person you will tie with before you do a tie because if you don’t, it can be quite risky if they don’t know what they’re doing.
I once worked with a photographer who said he wished to try some suspensions and naively I agreed as before I had only worked with professionally skilled people. As he was tying the ropes around me I noticed that something seemed a little off, the rope was just looped around, seemingly without anchor. When time came to lift into suspension all the rope slid up & jammed into the ribs, back & constricted breathing while the back half collapsed.
There was no support given, no awareness of the damage of the accident & no move to untie the disaster. Finally when I was being lowered it was a jerky process, again no support and the body was not happy at all. The untying was not immediate and by this time was long overdue. I mentioned to the photographer that if he doesn’t know how to tie properly then he should not be doing this. By the time I was heading home from the shoot I was still trying to breathe properly & have since had recurring back problems from stress & lifting.
