It's a question that all rope bondage beginners should be asking... So when it comes to finding the best rope for this kind of specialist sex play, you need to be looking at everything from material to length of rope to ensure that what you get up to is not only safe but sensual too. Rope Warehouse will guide you through the best bondage rope you need to buy and how to get the very best out of it.

How Do I Choose Bondage Rope?

When it comes to bondage rope you're really looking at cost effectiveness, comfort and ease of use. Although strength is a factor for more complex positions, we'll stick to the basics first...

What you do need to consider, is the diameter of the rope. Don't go anywhere near ultra thin rope, as this could cause all sorts of problems ranging from circulation complications and discomfort to painful bruising and nerve damage in bad cases.

Rope Warehouse stock bondage rope with a minimum diameter of 6mm to keep you as safe as you possibly can be - preventing pressure from becoming too concentrated on certain parts of the body. Any diameter less than 5mm and you run the risk of compromising safety.

In terms of length - if you're starting out, we recommend at least 10 metres of rope to get you going. Although shorter rope is good for quick and efficient wrist and ankle ties, we supply a standard length of 10 to cater to a wide variety of different naughty knots you have in mind, giving you enough to experiment and keep you going for multiple bondage sessions.

 

What Type Of Rope Is Used In Bondage?

Cotton Rope

A great go-to rope for beginner and experienced bondage fanatics, our cotton rope is not only very affordable but super soft, protecting against burns and friction due to the supple, natural fibre construction.

Cotton rope hold knots incredibly effectively, it's also easy to hand wash or place in the washing machine on a cold cycle. It's easily the best looking of the bondage rope options we have on offer. The only downside to cotton rope is that the knots can sometimes be a little difficult to get out of. However, the rope can be cut quickly and easily if you do find yourself in a precarious situation.

We recommend using cotton rope for tying wrists and ankles, but staying away from this option if suspension is what you like.

Hemp Rope

Hemp is an incredibly pliable natural fibre rope that's easy to work with and great for creating really good knots, responding well to heavy loads. Hemp is also a great choice for more artistic forms of rope bondage such as the Japanese Shibari due to its natural, organic and traditional look.

Compared to cotton rope, hemp may compromise slightly on comfort but it's more of a practical option to keep your hitches in place with a low risk of breakage.

Hemp style rope is also preferable to those that derive pleasure from the slightly rougher and more rustic hemp surface.
