Tabuu Wrap-up: Are you into bondage and you want to be tied up? Rope is not the only option! Discover other super fun alternatives.

Whether you like being tied up or being the one tying up others, there’s a ton of room for you in the BDSM community. Bondage is a very popular practice and many people enjoy it one way or the other. It’s exciting and it’s very versatile. Contrary to what people may believe, bondage is not just about using rope.

Don’t get me wrong, rope is great, but there are many other ways to engage in bondage. If you want to broaden your horizons, here are a few alternatives to rope that will make your bondage experience different and super fun.

1. Rope Play

We can’t talk about bondage and not mention rope, it’s just impossible. When it comes to playing with rope, especially if you’re a beginner, it’s important you learn about knots, technique, and the types of rope available. This is a big part of having a safe experience, so you shouldn’t avoid it. On the contrary, you should do as much research as possible and learn as much as you can before getting into it.

Thankfully, the Internet is full of resources. You can find a bunch of articles and books on the topic, but not only that! You can also reach out to more experienced practitioners of bondage and also watch videos on YouTube on how to make different types of knots and learn safety techniques.

Rope is very versatile; it can get as simple or as complex as you want. And it’s definitely teamwork! The dominant needs to practice, a lot, and the submissive must be patient and facilitate the learning process in any way they can. It’s also important to take precautions, have a safe word, and put together a set of rules and limits.

2. Tape and Handcuffs

If you want to get into bondage but playing with rope seems like too much work, there are easier and quicker alternatives. For example, bondage rope is as quick and easy as it gets. Not to mention you can pick your tape in any color you want, it will stay in place, come off easily, and it won’t hurt as much when you’re taking it off, so it will be more comfortable.

If you don’t like the stickiness, handcuffs are another great alternative. Again, it’s super easy and quick. However, handcuffs are not for everyone and it’s important to find the right size, so you will need to do your research. The last thing you want is for your circulation to be cut off because it can be dangerous.

You should consider bondage cuffs, which are made of leather and other softer materials. They look different, but they will get the job done. Either way, remember you still need to do your research so you can engage in safe bondage and have rules. In other words, be responsible!

3. Soft Bondage

If you want your bondage to be soft and sensual, you can use silk ties and scarves. Besides being softer, more comfortable, readily available, and easy to use, silk ties and scarves are a lot less intimidating. This is why it’s a great way to get started with bondage. Once you become more comfortable, you can graduate to other tools.

Scarves and ties are very versatile. You can tie both hands together over the head or use other techniques, you can also use them to cover your partner’s eyes so you can engage in sensory play, and so much more. When you’re unable to move or see, your other senses become heightened and you become a lot more sensitive, which intensifies the experience.

Because the fabrics are so soft, you will be comfortable and the possibility of injury or the risk of danger is very little. However, you still need to do your research and take precautions to be safe.

4. Honor Bondage

This kind of bondage doesn’t involve rope or any of the alternatives we’ve presented above. The concept is very simple, you’re told to put yourself in a position and you must stay like that for the duration of the encounter. Your word is your bond! This kind of bondage is more common in dominant/submissive relationships, but it’s not exclusive to the BDSM scene.

Of course, it will take a lot more self-control and restraint, but that’s what makes the experience so intense. This restraint is what makes honor bondage so different from other bondage practices. There are no toys involved, only your willingness to completely surrender your control, which is why it’s most common in the BDSM scene.

5. The Use of Pervertibles

Pervertibles are a great way to engage in bondage when you don’t have the budget or the restraint that honor bondage requires. Toys can be very expensive, so many people can’t buy them right off the bat. But that’s where pervertibles come in! Pervertibles are simply common items that are repurposed.

For example, wooden spoons can be used for spanking, ties can be used tying someone up, clothespins can be used as nipple clamps, cables or cords can be used as rope, velcro can be a great replacement for handcuffs, etc.

Bondage can be done on a budget, you don’t need to invest in expensive sex toys. You can, and quality sex toys are amazing, but if you can’t make that investment at the moment, these alternatives will work just as well.

However, when you’re going through your everyday items, make sure you consider how comfortable and useful they really are for your purposes. For example, duct tape hurts when it comes off and it will leave a sticky residue behind, thin cables or cords can cut off circulation or cut the skin, and rough ropes can cause wounds. You need to think about the effect of the pervertible and decide if it’s a good idea or not.

Needless to say, you need to be careful! Always take safety measures, always have a pair of scissors at hand, determine a safe word, and never forget about your partner’s well-being while you’re engaged in bondage. Especially when using pervertibles. Purchasing the right materials to make safe pervertibles is a lot cheaper than purchasing new sex toys, so make sure you do your research and find the best possible alternatives.
