Addendum: Watch how a rigger react to comments and criticism, warranted or unfounded, yours or from other models/peers. His reaction will give you a good gauge of his ego and therefore your safety.


I'm just a lucky middle aged woman that likes to be tied. I've had the fortune to meet and be tied by some of the big Japanese (and a few other) names out there. Others, I've had the fortune to meet and exchange words and opinions. 

Again, I'm nobody. I do not aspire to be a renown model, I've no idea how even the wrist rope is tied. But I know that I cannot afford to be injured and I've had the bad fortune to get a nerve injury and the good fortune that it healed completely in 2 weeks. I appreciate the passion that drives many rope enthusiast.
I also understand how heady its power can be. 
Knowing both Japan and the West I also understand the frustrating element of both cultures.But again, there should be no hurry, there should be no "showing off".Let's not forget that what goes on on stage, during shows and performances with trained riggers and models is not necessarily the "golden standard" of rope. There is an added element of risk that comes with the need to "entertain an audience" that is not necessary outside of it.

When it comes to rope as a way to communicate with your partner, as a way to express and experience your relationship, all that matter is the exchange between the two of you, the energy, the intimacy and, yes, the sensuality of it all.
