Use

The Fetish Series Japanese Silk Rope is a great bondage rope for beginners. It’s nice and lengthy, allowing for plenty of options when it comes to trussing up your special someone but it’s not an unwieldy amount of rope. The rope is pretty soft. However, depending on positioning, the amount of movement by the subject and the weight supported by the rope it can easily leave rope burn and/or bruises just like any other method of bondage will. The rope itself is comfortable against the skin and doesn’t slip too easily against itself. For a more advanced user I expect it would be a nice addition to the collection but it won’t compare to good quality bondage rope. Also, the rope has a good deal of give; someone who prefers more immobility when bound will find this rope to be a bit roomy.

As with any rope bondage, please use the proper safety measures and knots/tying techniques. Never leave a bound person alone for any length of time, keep a close eye on the subjects breathing and check frequently for loss of feeling in the limbs.

This rope is not intended to be used for suspension. I highly doubt that it would properly hold more than a limb or two much less an entire body.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

The rope is 35 feet long and about 1/4” in diameter. Overall, the rope is nice quality. I do have one major issue with it however. The ends of the rope are sealed with nothing more than some silver tape. I removed the rope from its box and immediately noticed that the tape on the ends was peeling off already, making some sharp little corners that hurt against my skin. One of the first things I did upon receiving my rope was removing the tape. I promptly trimmed the ends and soaked them in clear nail polish to keep them from fraying. If you don’t feel like painting nail polish onto your rope I would suggest thoroughly soaking the tips in white glue. Now that the tape has been removed I really like the rope but I certainly had my doubts when it first arrived. If you aren’t willing to put a little effort into prepping your rope then I’d find something different.

The maker claims that the rope is made of silk. I doubt that it actually is though. While the rope is soft it’s not silk soft, I haven’t done any tests to be sure as that requires throwing chemicals on my rope or burning it, neither of which I’m too keen on.

Performance

Generally, I like this rope, it certainly has its flaws but overall it does the trick pretty well. It doesn’t slip too much against itself and it has no problem holding knots. Unlike some of my other restraints this rope will definitely leave marks. After a few of our more intense sessions I’ve been left with abrasions and rope bruises on the areas in direct contact with the rope, especially on more delicate areas like my wrists or if I’ve had weight resting on the rope.

As I said, I never gave the little tape aglets a chance so I really don’t know how or if it would hold up. I’m not too partial to stopping a scene because my materials are coming undone so I fixed the problem before it arose. What I did notice about the tape ends was that they were uncomfortable, tacky looking and in the places that they were already peeling off, painful. It’s an easy enough problem to fix but I imagine that I wouldn’t be too pleased with the product if I’d left them on. After removing it and sealing the ends however, I love it. It’s fun to use and functions perfectly for its intended use.

    • Easy to put on / use
    • Holds up to use well

Care and Maintenance

This rope shouldn’t need to be cleaned too often. If the rope gets dirty or if you’re worried about bacteria buildup transferring to skin during use you can hand wash the rope in cold water and detergent. If you’ve properly sealed the ends you can put the rope in a lingerie bag and wash it in the washing machine set to cold. Allow the rope to air dry out of direct sunlight. Test for color fastness before washing with anything else.

If bodily fluids (blood, vaginal fluid, semen, etc.) get on your rope they should be washed and then hung to dry for at least two weeks before being used with another person. This eliminates the chances of transmitting AIDS and hepatitis. If they are not being used with multiple partners then washing and hanging to dry overnight would suffice.

Follow-up commentary
Still a fun product. We use it anytime we're looking for something a little more versatile than bondage cuffs and it does the trick every time.

    I love the way that you covered the health aspect, cleaning to avoid possible spread of AIDS and hepatitis. Nice forethought. Great Review.

    Excellent review!

    Silk does come in different grades and my guess is this is a lower grade, but strong silk. Not all silks are graded for fabric use.

    One more thing, silk gives some awful rope burns, so that may even be a good sign, although I'm not a fan of rope burns.
