Things to keep in mind

There are certain things that are extremely important when selecting your bondage rope. Below we have listed some of the most important points to take into account when making your purchasing decision.

Rope size

The length of the rope is an extremely important factor to consider. If you want to do more extravagant bondage, then a longer rope is usually preferred. For simple wrist and ankle straps, a shorter rope may suffice.

Rope strength

The strength of the rope is another thing you should always consider before buying a bondage rope. If the rope isn’t strong enough for the things you want to do, then this can cause problems and nasty injuries.

Feel of the rope

If you like it rough then a rougher rope may be ideal. However, a smoother rope can prevent rope burn and make the whole experience a lot more pleasurable. Keep this in mind when choosing the best bondage rope for your situation.
