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.

So recently for the second time in my sex life, I have felt extremely sexually frustrated to the point that I actually get a little grumpy. I’d like to think that I have a nice healthy sex drive and when it gets to the point that I need the release – I need the release and there is no arguing that. I need it so bad that I can’t focus fully on anything that I am doing. Which really sucks, because I am a college student and I have home work that needs to be focused on and when I sit down to work on it. There have been a few times that I sit down to work on my home work and I can’t think about anything other than sex. This is when I usually get a little frustrated with myself, my brain says “Stop that – you can wait until after I finish my work” and my body says “Forget that, I need this right now!”
Luckily for me, I live with my partner and we have sex regularly when we need it. What do I do if he’s not home? I just masturbate with one of the awesome sex toys that I own – so I still get the release that my body craves. Sure, for me it will never replace sex with my partner – but it at least fulfills that need until I can have sex with my guy again. Though there have been times where a sex toy just won’t cut it for me and I need my partner. I need to feel his body against mine and I need the release that he gives me. I also need the feeling he gives me when he wraps his arms around me and lets me lay against him and rest afterward. Nothing will ever give me what he gives me or make me feel the way he makes me feel.
It’s just that I don’t know how to get my mind off of it when it does happen. Right now, my poor guy is currently sick and can barely breathe through his nose and I don’t really have a whole lot of time to myself right now to even masturbate. That is what happened the first time I became sexually frustrated as well. My beau and I were both so busy that at night we were too tired to even think of having sex. I’m thinking I might have to hide one of my water proof toys under the sink or something so I will have one in there at all times when I may need one – so I have that back up at least.
So, here I am currently feeling sex obsessed and waiting impatiently for my partner to get better.
