Anonymously sourced rope. Pros:. I got my first set of five millimeter jute from Jade Rope (fairly large set, about 80 metres) for about $113.00 Australian dollars before shipping. I don’t remember exactly how much I paid in NZD, but it was between $150.00 to $180.00 with shipping included. Summary:. Hemp will do the job, and do it well – but you might want to source it from a known and trusted supplier, as opposed to an anonymous source (a “learn from my mistakes” moment! ) I’ve found hemp to be very different depending on where I got it from – and my Twisted Monk stuff is actually really up there. The knots made by this rope compact down quite small; however, it tends to remain relatively easy to unpick. Again, this is related to the lack of friction. Jute is similar to hemp in that it has excellent tooth; no issues whatsoever with using hitches etc. Very few knots required.
It really depends on you and who you’re tying. Different ropes have different advantages, different pros and cons. I was in an experimental mood, so I bought some and took it home with me. Wasn’t terribly expensive; maybe 15 dollars for a bundle? It’s a really significant factor. And this is why I strongly advise that you DO NOT buy your rope from Peaches and Cream or any other sex shop.
Wasn’t terribly expensive; maybe 15 dollars for a bundle? I wouldn’t use this stuff for bondage at all with the core intact. Sometimes even scars, if the rope is thin enough and the pressure is applied forcefully enough. I recommend rope of 5 millimeters or above for safety reasons. However, once I removed the core, that changed things considerably (If you want to know how to remove the core, send me a message or something and I’ll update). Pros. Which is fantastic! It’s always great to have some idea of exactly how much your rope can take. For our purposes though, what’s great about this bondage rope is the way it feels.
Summary:. If you’re looking for good restraint bondage rope and enjoy using knots, this is probably what you should go for. It’s reasonably light, and you can carry a lot of it around with you if you like using lots of rope. Because it’s a natural fibre rope with decent tooth, you can do shibari and other styles of rope that rely on friction over knots, which is pretty great. It IMPROVES. Above; undyed five mil tossa jute; below, 6 mil dyed tossa jute.
This is actually one of my two favourite ropes. If I’m not doing shibari, if I’m doing a quick restraint or column tie for sexual or other purposes with no care for the aesthetic, then this is my go to. If you’re looking for good restraint bondage rope and enjoy using knots, this is probably what you should go for. Again, not recommended for shibari, but everything else goes, and I’ve heard that there are actually dyes which will change the colour of nylon. There. End post. It may be because it’s sort of a short fibred rope, or it might just be the stuff I got hold of. But every time I’ve used it, whatever I’ve been wearing or my partner has been wearing has wound up dusted in the stuff. It’s a really significant factor. And this is why I strongly advise that you DO NOT buy your rope from Peaches and Cream or any other sex shop.
