How to Prep Your Bondage Rope
Hey guys — as I promised, a post on my latest quest to prep all my cotton rope.
First, a note. There are a lot of materials to use for bondage — pretty much as wide as your imagination. All of them have merits and drawbacks, and I encourage you to do your research (for example — silk is tricky! It tightens fast and could really hurt your partner! So be careful with your silk tie fetish please!). I am using 3/4 inch 100% cotton rope which is like 7 cents a foot on wholesale websites.
The first thing you do with this rope is wash it. All of it. Use fabric softener. It makes it smell good and feel good for your partner, and then you don’t have to worry as much about weird icky shit being on it from processing. This is especially important if your rope is going anywhere near orifices. Here is how mine looked when it came out:
Next, cut it into the lengths you want. Jay Wiseman recommends a starter kit of one 18 foot, four 12 foot, and eight 6 foot lengths. I measured mine a bit wonky so I have like two 18’s, two 12’s, two 8’s, two 6’s, and a few other assorted 6 ish bits. Its good for me though, because a lot of it is for small scale bondage or securing hime to things. How long of pieces you want depends on what you want to do with it.
Finally, I secured all the ends with masking tape (the short bits) or a whip stitch (the long ones).Having different patterns will help me distinguish lengths in the dark. Here is a nifty youtube video to do it.
Mine is a cool shade of green.
Because that’s the color embroidery thread I had.
Tah-dah, you’ve got functional cotton rope for all your kinky needs!
hime got me the cotton rope I wanted for Valentine’s day, and we have been busy prepping it in the manner described by my personal hero Jay Wiseman in his Erotic Bondage Handbook. I’ll post later with pictures about the entire process, but for now let me inform you that it involves washing the rope with fabric softener.
Of course, now my problem is drying it — if I break the building’s dryer someone is going to kill me — and the best solution is setting up a drying rack… why yes, right in the middle of the dorm. Sorry, roomies.

Every part of your body is mine to hold, pinch, grab, pinch, slap, and fuck. Such a gift given to me will be used often long and hard.

Hi All – I’m going to take a moment to wax poetic about…
“Now GD,” you might say, “why do you need a hairbrush? You don’t have any hair!”
True facts, friends. But do you know what hime has? That’s right. A beautiful smooth ass.
Not expecting that? I don’t know why not. My brain revolves pretty heavily around spankings and impact play. And I’ve discovered the lovely implications of hairbrushes and spanking.
First of all, let me tell you that I love spanking by hand. It’s lovely to feel the slight sting and the subtle heat of her skin starting to pink up. I love being able to rub at the places that I just hit, causing more blood to flow in and making it ache just that much more. That’s a quiet joy of mine.
However, I’ve also found that using other instruments is pretty great, if you know what you’re doing.
Now, I’m still in uni and I don’t have a lot of money. I won’t ever be able to afford that nice flogger I want, and my dream of a single-tail? Only a dream. But I can absolutely afford a hairbrush – or take hime’s, and let her brush with it the next day and remember.
Now, Dom(me)s, I caution you to remember to try these on yourself, first. The bristle end can be a very surprising and sting-y sensation, but when done right, is a fantastic stimulator. It is also fairly quiet, much more quiet than my hand, if noise is an issue. Hairbrush bristles can also be used as an erotic massage tool. If you’ve never had a brush run gently across your shoulders and spine, I highly recommend it.
hime and I use a brush with a very flat back, semi-hollow plastic body, and one I’ve made sure is very smooth (like the one in the picture). You can experiment with sizes, shapes, and textures, but I like this one best. This one is fun because boy, the noise it makes is practically orgasmic. It’s the perfect slap, and being able to wield an impact instrument is such a dom-space trigger. It isn’t too loud, either. It also lets you even out the pressure of a spanking, and if your sub has somehow situated themselves in a way that you would normally have to strike with your off-hand, the brush gives you a degree of control with your off-hand, or a better reach to lean over and use your dominant one.
And when her ass is red and sore and she is fucked out and ready for aftercare, I can seat her at my feet and gently brush her hair until she is ready for a nap.
Oh yes, I do have a new appreciation for my hairbrush.

Your partner likes it when you talk dirty in whatever language you study.
You are actually saying “It is five O’Clock. I like cake. Mary is a fast runner.” As you don’t KNOW anything dirty in this language.
You are seriously contemplating asking the foreign students to help you with some vocabulary.
Wanna guess what’s next, slut?
In reality - cuddles and naptime.
