Easy Guide to Choosing Your Bondage Rope

Rope bondage is a great way to experience BDSM. If you want to get into BDSM play, it is a must for you to acquire some rope to bring into your dungeon (well, maybe at this point is not a dungeon but your toy box *wink*) You can choose from several types of ropes and materials. Let’s take a look at the different materials available out there. 

Cotton ropes are probably the most common type of rope used by bondage players all over the world. Considering most of your clothes are probably made out of cotton then you can expect these to be incredibly comfortable. It is soft on the skin, so you won’t hear any complaints about it from your partner. But the downside of it is this type of rope doesn’t really work for suspension bondage because it can stretch too much, so you should not use it at all for this purpose. The other thing about cotton ropes is they are not very good at holding knots, so if you want to create a very intricate and tight knot, this might not be possible. They also hold a lot of moisture, so they are prone to germs and bacteria.

Hemp ropes are the traditional material used for rope bondage. These ropes are very strong, can last a long time and have the benefit of being visually appealing. However, a lot of people don’t like this material because they feel it scratches the skin. Some feel it is too uncomfortable for them. They can also be quite hard to untie, so it is not the easiest rope to manage. But the good thing is the material actually softens a bit after you have washed it a few times. So try it and see if after several washes the material feels better on the skin. By the way, you should also never use hemp rope for suspension bondage.

Silk ropes feel amazingly soft on the skin. They are super smooth and feel lovely and nice to the touch. Thus, it makes them very comfortable to use. Silk also has the added benefit of not being abrasive. These types of ropes would be perfect for beginners in the art of rope bondage because they are so comfy and easy to manage. A silk rope is also your best choice if you want to get into Japanese bondage.

The best things about silicone ropes are their flexibility along with their smooth and soft texture. Silicone ropes can be stretched a great deal but they are still restrictive enough so your partner won’t be able to get out easily. Another good thing about these ropes is they are non-porous, in other words: they are not prone to bacteria and germs. It is also noteworthy to mention they warm up to the body’s temperature, which is very nice. But some people might find them too stretchy for some types of bondage. Plus, they can also pinch the skin or cause some uncomfortable sensations when tied in knots.

Ropes made of synthetic materials are another option you can choose for bondage. Several types of ropes fall into this category and they tend to be smooth and strong. However, some of them, like plastic ropes, are not flexible so you will have a very hard time tying knots with it. Another downside to using synthetic materials is the increased risk of rope burn.

Keep these materials in mind when choosing the best rope to add to your BDSM play.
