A 101 guide on how to bind yourself and survive
Here are some suggested ties:
Below are descriptions of knots and devices used.
This first image describes how to tie the ever useful cinch noose. The cinch noose is a slip knot with a lot of friction. It "cinches up" easily but is difficult to loosen and nearly impossible to untie.
Combine the cinch noose with a wrist coil like this...
Insert your wrists into the wrist coil from opposite sides so that when you twist your hands palms together the coil will form a figure "8" around your wrists. Obviously you will have to position the cinch noose before getting both wrists into the coil. Note at first you may be tempted to make the wrist coil smaller than is necessary. You'll soon find even a loose coil tightens up nice and snug and struggling only makes it tighter. [1/4" inch (or greater) cotton line is recommended.]
CAUTION: Don't pull the cinch noose too tight as you may loose circulation in your hands and may not be able to cut yourself loose. As with all self-bondage care must be taken, practise and if in doubt don't do it unless you have safety back up person available. Play safe & live to play another day.
This next image describes how to construct a special ring device which is useful for taking up the slack in a rope. It is often used as the centerpiece of bondage games where pulling a rope tight completes the bondage. Release usually requires obtaining a knife and cutting the bonds.
These images orginally appeared in a magazine called Bondage Life.
