Are you among the one in ten people who is experimenting with rope bondage? This practice has existed for centuries, but recently more and more people have become interested in tying up their loved ones--or being tied up themselves--as a means of increasing their sensual and sexual pleasure. In fact, according to the introduction of "Back on the Ropes", bondage is "one of the most popular sensual fantasies."

How do you learn the basics, or even expand your knowledge? There are websites (including the Knotty Boys' own) or you could buy a DVD. Yet if you are like me, you prefer looking at a book which you can refer to again and again without using a machine and a screen.

Well, "Back on the Ropes" is that book! The Two Knotty Boys have produced an extremely useful AND eye-pleasing guide for novices and experts alike.

I have been interested in rope bondage for some time, and when "Back on the Ropes" arrived at my front door, I opened it quickly. I am a total novice, and frankly I'm more interested in being tied up than doing the tying, but I wanted to try for myself. And I am going to pass it on to others to practice on me!

"Back on the Ropes" is the second Knotty Boys' book, and at first I was a bit concerned that it might be geared toward more advanced practitioners. There was no reason for concern. This book repeats the core knots, ties, and techniques from the earlier book, along with detailed pictures and captions. The new section of the book illustrating the use of the ties and how put them into action on a partner should appeal to the advanced rope fans. In total there are more than 70 rope bondage ties and techniques demonstrated on beautiful models in excellent, full color photos.

I very much appreciated the two pages dedicated to rope bondage safety. Especially novices excited about trying new things might not be aware of possible problems, and this section makes crystal clear what you can do and what you must not do with your partner...or yourself, for that matter.
Experience
When I finally got down to trying the knots, I found that I am knot challenged, probably because I know absolutely nothing about tying knots and had to master the seemingly easiest things. It helped when I realized that I should suspend the rope from a cabinet handle at about head height. After a few tries, I managed to begin to get the basic ties. Now I'm on my way!!! If I can do it, anyone can do it.
Follow-up commentary
The more I use this book, the more I like it. Even if I don't tie any knots, I can look at the yummy pictures! I still recommend it highly.
