ROPE!

This is a great quality, very soft rope that is extremely inexpensive! It's a great way to experiment with your partner and I'd highly recommend it. It's a simple, and well made product that does exactly what it says it does. Five stars!

useful review
My boyfriend and I had been experimenting with tying me up for a little while, but we'd been using a pair of novelty handcuffs. My bed, however, doesn't have a place to handcuff anything TO so I started looking for alternatives that didn't involve redecorating my room. I found this rope online, and decided to give it a try.

I got the rope in black, but the red and purple are also nice colors). This rope is SUPER long (32 feet!). The rope looks great out of the package and it's really soft. I didn't use the rope for any kind of suspension or anything, but it didn't leave any marks on my wrists after extended use.

There were, however, a couple of issues. One being that neither I nor my partner had ever used rope before. When I opened the package, I had assumed there would be some kind of instructions or suggestions on how to use it. There WERE a few pictures of knots, but nothing that helped us at all. None of the knots they showed had any indication of how they could be applied to the body or used as restraints. We ended up sort of improvising and it worked fine, but it would have been nice if there'd been some more instructions. I also noticed that the ends of the rope aren't "finished", meaning that if I threw it in the washer they would unravel. I haven't had to wash the rope yet, but when I do, I'll take the advice of other reviewers and tape the ends.

For a beginner, this rope is WAY too long. There's no WAY I could even imagine using the entire length. However, since the ends aren't finished anyway, I suppose one could just cut the rope in half and have two ropes that are still 16 ft in length, which to me is quite long enough.

Anyhow, I think this rope is great for its price and is pretty much just what I wanted. As an alternative to using handcuff type restraints, it provides a lot of flexibility and variety. While cuffs need something to be cuffed TO, rope can pretty much be looped over anything or tied to whatever you've got in your bedroom. I recommend it to anyone looking to expand their collection and try something new!
Follow-up commentary
Since buying this rope, I have been nothing but satisfied. It's incredibly versatile and can be useful for a range of activities. Anyone from beginners to advanced users will enjoy.

    I can't believe that the ends are unfinished... that's weird. Great review!

    Yeah, it was kind of weird that they were unsealed. We use it anyway though. I suppose it'll only really matter when I try to wash it.

    Most beginners could easily find enough use by cutting it in half. I'd totally recommend doing that. I actually run out of rope when using this rope, so it's all up to your point of view. Also, there's quite a few rope bondage books here on EdenFantasys. If you want some how-tos, I'd pick up one of those. They're good stuff.

    I posted a video on EdenTube about how to do a simple tie. You might like that: [http://video.edenfantasys.com/videos/Beginners-silk-rope-kit-by-sportsheets/]

    How well does it tie? Do the knots lie flat and hold, or are the knots relatively loose even when pulled tightly?

    The knots tie really well! They're not loose at all, but also not too difficult to untie. Also, thanks so much for the link Mistress Kay. Very interesting stuff! Next time we get out the rope we'll definitely use this as reference! I'll be dangling from the ceiling in no time!
