Rope can be used to expose our intimacy so it can be observed and enjoyed. Many positions can be explored, each with its different feelings and challenges. Many of these positions can be used for sex, but that remains a choice. Make sure to discuss these poses before exploring them as they will make people feel quite vulnerable.

The goal of this week is to try a variety of positions exposing the body and explore how they make you feel.

Day 155: Wrists to Legs – Simplicity is the key, tie the wrists to the legs on each side and explore which movement is possible (sitting, on the back, facing down, side, etc.) Try different variations, wrists to ankles, wrist to thighs, or try trapping the wrists in a frog tie for extra restrictions.

Day 156: Crab Tie – The crab tie is a classic to keep the legs open. Tie the forearm and the calf parallel together and try different placements to see what feels best. Experiment if you prefer cinches or not with the different wraps.

Day 157: Open Knees – Create a tie that will keep the knees open. A great way to do that is by tying knees together with the rope going in the back in between. You can also use a chest harness and attach it to each side.

Day 158: Thigh to Chest – Tie a thigh to the chest, this can be by attaching it to a chest structure, or simply making a two-column tie around the waist and the thigh. Explore what you can do with the other leg to bring more exposure.

Day 159: Feet to Chest – Bring the feet to the chest to bend the hips and expose the lower body. This can be done simply by tying the feet to the chest, or by using a structure like the “Crossed-leg pose” (Day 139) or “Butterfly pose” (Day 140).

Inspirations and Resources

Day 160: Tuck Position – aka Tanuki shibari (Racoon tie) – Tie the wrists behind the knees to keep the leg up and the butt exposed. Try moving to different positions (on the back, facedown, side) to see how this influences the feeling of restriction and vulnerability.
Day 161: More Hogties – Let’s revisit the hogties from Week 6 with a focus on exposure. Create a hogtie that will hold the legs open and increase the movement restriction to maintain the position. You can explore this tie by pulling each leg progressively.
