useful review
I began my bondage journey like many others interested in kink: unsure which restraint methods I would enjoy. Giving rope a consideration, I settled on Doc Johnson's Japanese bondage rope in a soft black. In the event that this was a complete failure, I would be out 12 dollars at most. However, fortunately for me and my sex life, this rope turned out to be a surprising favorite!

I am still a bondage novice, and I am far from skilled at ropework. Luckily, this item caters to the seasoned vets as well as beginners! A knot instruction pamphlet is included that provides a quick guide to different techniques.

I originally had in mind using this rope for the sole purpose of simply tying wrists to the headboard. When we did this, I found that the ropes had not burnt or irritated my skin like normal rope would do. The material is cotton, and I found this extremely comfortable. I could struggle as much as I pleased, and neither my wrists nor any other part of me was harmed. There is usually more than enough rope to spare when I use this 32 foot rope.

I have a couple of qualms about this rope, but these are nothing major. First, the ends can fray. The rope can also become "fluffy" looking over longtime usage, but this is merely an aesthetic problem. In addition, given the rope's cotton material, if it's tied in certain ways the material can slip on itself as it is so soft. Last, the rope only comes in three colors: red, black, and purple.. I would love to see this in more.

The rope comes packaged in a plastic clamshell. Nothing exciting, nothing ugly. I threw it away for recycling purposes. It can be laid out in the open, to no suspicion of others.

When cleaning this rope, I would suggest handwashing it and laying it out to dry. I would not put this item in the washing machine. Although it is cotton, ends will fray.

All in all, this rope should be a staple in many toyboxes! It will continue to get good use in ours.
Follow-up commentary
If the fraying is overlooked, this bondage rope still deserves an A. It has stayed durable in the middle and has not gotten very "fuzzy". Cleaning has not been a problem. This bondage rope is a staple.

    I wrap a small piece of the black electrical tape around the rope, right next to the end, to keep it from fraying.
