    Hi guys, I have not posted on this forum in aaaaaages (too long really), but I need some help and know that this is the place to get it :)

    My gf and I sometimes like to restrain each other, typically with cuffs or bondage tape, but we've just bought some rope (from LH of course) as we both wanted to try something that's harder to wiggle out of, but still safe.

    BUT, having never been a scout, sailor or kidnapper I have absolutely sod all knowledge of knots! So can anyone offer some advice on the best knot to use for tying wrists and ankles to the bed? Preferably one that the person tied up can't get out of, but is still easy and quick for the other person to release (just in case).

    Thanks in advance :) ST

    There are some excellent videos on youtube that give excellent step by step training. I think they are by the "knotty boys" or something similar. I'm sure someone will correct me if wrong.

    here is a non sexual guide to all the knots your heart may desire:

    http://www.animatedknots.com/ (They also do an app for Ipad that can be transported to where ever you need to be tying knots....)

    then good old WIKI:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_bondage_positions

    I'm just looking into this area myself. I love tying knots, away from the bedroom, and i've played a little with the good old "wrists and ankles to the bed posts" type of deal. but some of the positions on that Wiki page look fun.

    I have already learnt that safety, above all else, is the most important thing, so be careful, have fun, explore ; )

    www.knottyboys.com has in their download section videos on how to make a ton of knots and also a whole lot of ties both quick and more advanced. I'm sure you can get some ideas from there. To get even more you can buy their books:

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=26942 Back on the ropes

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=26946 Showing you the ropes

    I personally like showing you the ropes better even though it is black and white but the ties was nicer there. However, both are woth a read.

    They include info on ropes, storing, safety and such too.

    This book is quite handy if you're just starting out with rope play: http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=26944 I'd also recommend YouTube.

    Thanks guys!

    That animated knot site, although not sexual, has unbelievable clear videos of tying knots!! I'll have to try a few and see what works best. Especially looking for ones I can leave part tied, so it's quicker to slip wrists in and tighten. Don't want to be sat with my ipad out following the video while she's lying there waiting/nodding off lmao!

    Just be careful, rope bondage can be dangerous if you get carried away!

    As others have said, loads on YouTube etc.

    I have a book by "knotty boys", it's quite good !! !

    I also bought 10m of 9mm natural cotton rope off Amazon very cheaply. The OH loves it when I take her by surprise and tie her up.
