Japanese Bondage Rope review
Thanks to the great shop, Pink Cherry sex toys – I was given the chance to try out the bondage toy, cotton rope – for the very first time. You might be looking at this kind of strangely – I mean you may be thinking “Rope – what’s the big deal about it?” or “I could get that any old place.” Well, there is a lot you can do with rope and yes you could get it any where, but if you want to try out some great “shibari” or rope bondage, you need the perfect kind of rope. This Japanese Style Cotton Rope is manufactured by Doc Johnson made of 100% cotton and 32 feet (10 meters) long. The length works well for many rope bondage tricks and gives you lots of room to maneuver. The rope came in clear plastic packaging with a blue information card and there were no raunchy or pornographic images on it at all. The information card tells you a little information about the rope and on the inside there are a few images of a few knots that you can do. The images were a little hard for me to follow because all they consist of are loose looking knot images. I do better using videos and you can find lots of great videos from Two Knotty Boys.
When I opened the package, I had a good impression of the rope – it is really soft and feels nice against the skin. I feel that the product will most likely suit the more beginner and intermediate bondage enthusiasts. You c an use it to do simple things like wrist and ankle restraint with the rope, but if you want to move onto rope bondage techniques you will want to be sure to read up a bit on the subject first. When it comes to bondage, there are safety responsibilities that go along with it. So you will definitely want to make sure you learn the proper techniques to go along with it.
I did the pull, tug, and tear test on the rope and it holds in nice and strong. The rope is nice and thick not thin and flimsy. I feel like the rope is very well made, it’s woven together and the ends aren’t finished. If you are worried about the unfinished ends fraying even more – you can always clip the ends off with scissors and then quickly paint on them with clear nail polish. Another easy way is to wrap tape around the ends. It all depends on your preference.
Due to the amount included there is more than needed for beginner techniques, I found myself getting a little mixed up due to the amount when doing beginner knots. I’m petite and my partner is tall and slender so we had enough for what we needed. I mostly tried practicing knots and wrist restraints with him with the rope. The rope feels great and doesn’t irritate your skin at all. I got mine in black but you can choose from purple and red as well. I will definitely be going back to Pink Cherry to buy the other colors as well.
As far as washing goes,I have read that you could probably put it in a lingerie bag or one of those bigger bra balls and throw it in the washer. Otherwise you may want to wash it by hand if you feel the need to. I haven’t really needed to wash mine so I can’t be absolutely sure.
All in all, I have a very great impression of the product. It’s great quality, sturdy, and soft, and you have just enough needed to practice getting into rope bondage without having to buy more just yet. This was important for me as I am a beginner to rope bondage and I wasn’t 100% sure on how much I needed. Once I am ready to move onto the elaborate ties I will go ahead and purchase more. I really would love to try color work as well, but that will come once I have had more practice. I highly recommend this rope because my partner and I have had a lot of fun with it so far. I have also managed to do some pretty awesome knot work so I can tell you first hand that once you get the hang of it – it’s not as hard as it looks if that is something you are worried about. Just practice.
