    Been talking with my OH about tying each other up and to the bed and progressing from fluffy cuffs to rope or fabric. What rope/material would be best for bedroom bondage. And where would be the best place to learn to tie knots that can be undone quickly other than slip knots learnt in the scouts.

    Cotton rope is nice to start with as it's not too harsh on the skin. Here's a link to some you could start with:

    The best way you can learn about rope play is by reading books, watching videos and using your OH as a guinea pig!

    It is really important that you take in all of the safety advice, understand it and keep it at the forefront of your mind when playing with rope. If can be so incredibly dangerous if you tie the wrong place or the wrong rope tension etc. Also, although Lovehoney don't stock them, your should also get yourself some fabric cutters to keep handy when playing with rope. They're always handy for getting someone out of a situation quickly and effectively.

    There are loads of YouTube videos explaining how to tie. Just search for Shibari (Japanese rope bondage) and stuff should come up.

    On a different note - have you tried just using bondage tape? It's easy to use and can be a lot of fun!

    I was thinking about using the resistance bands that the OH has as they offer restriction of movement but also the knowledge that movement is possible so not in at the deep end. The OH already has some serious cutters from working with fabric but I am not allowed near them as she thinks I would use them for DIY

    I'm not sure how good it'll be to use resistance bands, as I don't think they'll stay tied to well.

    A great thing to use to start off with is a suit tie. They can be used very easily to tie hands together or to a bed etc.

    You just need to find the middle of the tie and put her hands there. Then wrap them both round her hands in opposite directions. Then get both ends and wrap them between her wrists as tightly as you need and then tie them together (remember not too tight, and if you see her hands changing colour at all, then untie her immediately and re-tie when they're back to normal). This will turn the tie into a set of handcuffs that are easy to untie her from and that can also be attached to things like bars o r poles if you include them in when you first wrap the tie around.

    Have you also considered getting some premade rope restraints like these? http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=1058

    If it's definitely rope you're wanting to get into, then I would suggest purchasing natural fibre rope, e.g. Hemp or jute, etc. This kind of rope (rather than the stuff you see for sale marketed under 'bondage rope') will react much better when tying.

    Once you have your rope, the first things you need learn are single column ties, and double column ties. These are easy to find tutorials for on YouTube, and you can practise them both on yourself (double is a little trickier, it depends how flexible you are!).

    Whenever doing anything with rope you must be aware of safety. Aspects such as nerve damage are a possibility, so it's important to know what you're doing, and know how to act if something happens.

    Good luck!

    Being honest I am absolutely hopeless and helpless when it come to knots. So its velcro fastened restraints for me. I know it is probalby boring compared to rope but it works for me and is much easier :)

    mysteron. I know what you mean I like velcro cuffs (wrist and ankle) they have a D ring so that you can use a clip to join wrist to wrist or wrist to feet or clip to a spreader bar for unhinered access to vulnerable areas ;)

    If you are new to rope play then it's probably cotton and a good pair of scissors!!

    I met Chanta Rose a few years back and had a signed copy of her Shibari/Bondage book off her and she recomended silk. I must admit that it does look good when it's done properly.

    Enjoy. x

    The velcro restraint would be good as it is not the actual knots that are the turn on but not being able to move.

    They look fun. Also saw the 4 poster bed under bed ones that would work well as my bed frame is solid so nowhere to secure the rope. Thank you all for your advise. I wanted to ask here before looking at the items on sale here so better prepared

    I also recommend KnottyBoys for info and knots.

    Regarding rope, I bought 9mm thick natural cotton rope/cord approx 6m in length off Amazon for only a few pounds.

    This rope is lovely and soft, doesn't stretch much, and leaves great (temporary) marks on the skin.
