The experience of a tie will completely change by changing the position of the body in space. Something that is loose when on your back can become tight and inescapable when flipping on your belly. Playing with gravity, rolling in a hogtie brings new and interesting possibilities.

Symmetric Hogtie Flip

A simple tie binding the wrists with the ankles together will change depending on the body position. When on the back, the hips can bend to give some slack, but once on the belly, the body will be forced into position.

We have to be careful to have enough slack in the rope when first tying to avoid putting too much pressure on the wrists. This works best on a bed or matted floor, make sure not to fall off the bed!

Asymmetric Hogtie Flip

Moving around will be different if the tie is asymetric. Each direction will have a different result. It is safer to flip using a knee or an elbow as the pivot point, than putting a lot of weight on an ankle or wrist. It is interesting to create positions where one limb pins down another one, creating an intensified feeling of restriction.

Practice Time!

Connect the ankles to the upper body and play with around moving on the back/side/belly.

Exploration ideas

  • Try different initial tie and observe how they change when moving around
  • Try different ways to move the person around, pulling, pushing, can they flip by themselves?
  • If the tie is asymmetrical, how is rolling one one side different from the other?
