The lower part of the body is amazingly strong as it carries the weight of the whole body and yet the complexity of its anatomy makes it very delicate to tie. There is a wide range to explore. Do you like tickles? Or do you prefer an intense feeling of restriction? We have to be careful when including toes and feet in a tie as there is a complex architecture of nerves, muscles and small bones, you can still be very mean while tying gently.

The goal of this week is to explore the potential of the lower body limbs, their shape, and play with different types of sensations.

Day 169: Foot Harness – Aka gravity boot, rope shoe – Create a strong structure on the feet to allow pulling them in different directions. This type of tie has acquired lots of popularity in suspension but it’s interesting to know it was originally designed to make it easier to pull the leg in different directions in floor ties.
Day 170: Shoes and Heels – Tying with shoes on changes how the rope feels and ankles will behave. It adds some protection to the feet and heels make an interesting attachment point. Bonus: how is tying with socks different from a bare foot.
Day 171: Feet Soles – The sole of the feet is an interesting focus, it is generally ticklish, and there are a few interesting pressure points that can be used for mean ties. You can also attach things to the soles of the feet like something scratchy, and then go for a walk!
Day 172: Pinning the Feet – Including feet in a tie and can increase its intensity. Tie in the feet in an existing tie by wrapping the foot in a structure or a connecting line.
Day 173: Shaping Ankles – Ankles can move in some directions, and not others. You can make it point or force it to bend. Try pulling the feet in opposite directions to create a mermaid tail. Explore creating different shapes using the limits of the range of motion.
Day 174: Capturing Toes – Including the toes in a tie is an interesting challenge because of their size, they have a higher tendency to escape. Create a structure and use it to attach the toes. Or start a tie at the toes, try different methods to anchor on the toes themselves.
Day 175: Between the Toes – Rope between the toes creates an interesting sensation. Try to add rope between the toes and add pressure on both sides of the feet at the base of the toes for increased intensity.
