How To Perform Rope Bondage - erotic video - review by musepro77

Well Intended but close to a Saturday Night Live skit

If you have an open mind, want a good laugh at the absurdity of the relationship between two actors, and in the end want to be able to have some rope bondage fun with your partner, buy this! This should be considered a "viral" DVD. After watching it, give it to a friend for a good laugh.
Informative, Easy to Understand
Instructor is visibly and audibly disturbing

Content / Genre / Audience

This is intended for people interested in rope bondage and who are looking to learn the basics or to see a demonstration. While certainly considered an S & M film, it is very light in its approach and easy to watch. If you use your imagination, you can see that rope bondage can be a beautiful thing, but this DVD doesn't serve it well. It is closer to comical at times then it is to instructional sex education.

The pace of the DVD is well thought out and there are replays with close-ups at the tricky parts to make sure the audience is clear as to how something is being done. I can not imagine EVER watching this DVD again though. While it is 65 minutes long, once it was over you can remember the 5 or so points and then you can give it a try yourself.

There is really only three scenes: 1)Rope on the hands (2)Rope on the body (3)Japanese Rope Bondage. Each scene is the same, the male "Roper" has tied up the woman. It is set in an awkward looking office or living room apartment space. There are a couple different camera angles at least to give you a couple different views. Otherwise, it is quite boring.

Wow. The star Roper looks and sounds like a calm version of the guy on Saturday Night Live that "lives in a van down by the river." He is a larger man, seems very nice, but is very sloppy. Forgetting cosmetics, appearance and clothing, you will be forced to listen to him breath for the full 65 minutes. I don't mean deep breaths, I mean every single breath he takes is Darth Vader-like. First it is interesting, then it is concerning and then it is annoying. I thought for sure he was going to pass out by the end of the video.

The woman was attractive enough, the picture on the DVD cover doesn't do her justice. The lingerie choice for her though isn't flattering at all. I get the fact that it is rope-like and it is black but it really doesn't look good at all on her. She visibly feigns interest in the beginning then about half way through she starts getting frisky with Darth Roper. By the end, she is really into getting tied up.
    • Bad acting / chemistry
    • Bad presentation

DVD Features

There are all the normal features of a DVD with the addition of a photo gallery. The best part is the section with trailers. The production value of all the videos is similar, but it was interesting to see their other specialties including cock and ball torture, "black velvet" porn and the art of torture in a trailer.

The menu contains:
Play Film
Trailers (Black Velvet, Tortia, CBT, Bondage, Interview)
Chapters (Intro, Types of Rope, Handcuffs, Arms to Chest, Wide Handcuffs)
Photo Gallery

And the third time I put the DVD in to get more information, it won't play. I even tried it on a second DVD player and my computer. I think Darth Roper has felt a disturbance in the force.

Personal comments

Anyone who is interested in Rope Bandage could definitely learn the basics quickly with this DVD, but considering the vastness of the internet, I am sure there are many online videos of five to ten minutes that can accomplish the same thing without the Darth Roper.


We are definitely able to do the basics demonstrated on this DVD and WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO without it. But again, we will never watch it again unless we watch it on mute and make our own subtitled audio track.
Follow-up commentary
It's been years since we originally bought these ropes. I'm happy to say they hold up amazingly well in the wash! We've even trimmed off the ends to make a set of smaller ropes. I can say that with each washing they got better and better. Now they are my go to in bed!

    Good review. I'm curious about the "As seen on TV" sticker on the front cover. I'd like to know what station is playing that infomercial late at night.

    I imagine it was on some 3am Las Vegas cable access show, probably taped in the same basement this video was shot it.

    Your description of the Darth Roper had me laughing. Now I want to watch it but not to learn about rope bondage. I want to see the Darth Roper!

    I think it is funny (funny odd, not funny HA HA) that you commented on the picture on the cover becaus the first thing I thought was, "...boy, that woman is not very attractive.."; " that a woman or a transsex/transgender..." and finally, "...that outfit is really odd and unattractive..."
  • xxxdiannaooo
