The act of bondage is simple on paper, many take it the bondage mean 'rope' however this is not the case. Many things can be used, often belts, ties, under the bed restraints and various other items.

The key to enjoying bondage is trust and communication, without both, the act will not be enjoyable for either party. Before conducting the act you MUST set-up a safe word or a traffic light system, as this will make sure that both parties will feel safe. More one safe words and the traffic light system can be found on the safety portion of this site.
 Another thing to be set-up before hand should be what will be used for the bondage, take into account what the other person feels comfortable in, offer more then one option such as rope or soft restraints that go under the bed. Some may even prefer to not be tied to a bed but with their arms behind their back or have their arms above their head using a restraint bar. To assure complete enjoyability you can discuss the options before hand.
Rope - While rope is the most common it can be the hardest to conduct correctly and if done incorrectly you can cut off circulation to a hand by tying too tight. For the most safe knots it is beat to practice before hand and try on you own wrist to ensure that when the moment to use them comes you're prepared and have a good feel for how tight the knots can go. Please be mindful of the other person if you have planned this in advance, test the knots on their wrist to see how comfortable they feel at different tightness's. remember, this is a to pleasurable for BOTH of you. If you're not tying to a location but to themselves, for example their arms behind their back, then practice the knots. You can never practice too much, the better you get the better it will be for both. Remember, if you're unsure of a knot, watch a video, make a test knot and try on yourself. NEVER USE ROPE FROM A HARDWARE STORE! This rope is not made to be against skin for extended periods of time and will cause rope burns as well as be unconformable due to the coarseness of the rope. Please be sure to use rope made for bondage as this is still rope however is smooth to the touch due to being made of silk, cotton or other smooth materials. Below you'll find a chart of where to not use rope for bondage.
Belts - Belts can be fashioned into a make shift bondage kit, there are many things one simple belt can turn into hand cuffs, a loop to tie a limb to a post, something to cover a partners eyes or mouth and various other things. Leather belts are always recommended for this as leather always feels good against the skin and will never cause an uncomfortable feeling due to the smooth nature of the material.
