How to Tie Yourself Up? A Guide to Self Bondage

Tying, binding, or restraint on oneself is what self-bondage entails. Rope, chains, tape, handcuffs, harnesses, and even the plastic wrap you keep in your kitchen drawer can be used to accomplish this.

While you would imagine using handcuffs or other straightforward wrist restraints, the realm of self-bondage is far more complex. There are countless choices; you only need to be willing to try new things.

When done correctly, self-bondage can be an enjoyable kind of sexual play that enables you to indulge in your wildest desires of self-restraint without the need for a partner.

Self-bondage often belongs to one of two categories:

Sensual Self-Bondage

Sensual self-bondage often involves more of a psychological high than actual physical restraint.

Here, being constrained is far more enjoyable than imagining dangerous, adrenaline-fueled bondage situations. Those who like sensuous self-bondage could employ ties that they are sure they can break free from, might only engage in bondage as a part of foreplay, would often leave loose knots in their rope, or might utilize a lock and key system where the key is relatively simple to get to. The feeling of self-bondage is more important than the complexity of your ties.

Strict Self-Bondage

On the other side, strict self-bondage is often more complex, difficult to escape from, and is very much for those who crave a challenge and believe the dangerous element of bondage matters most.

Your other fetishes, such as humiliation, slave play, or punishment, may be catered to by strict self-bondage. This is also something you may do when engaging in self-bondage; for instance, if you like humiliation, you can hide the key to your binds in a location where you must humiliate yourself to get to it (like outside on your front lawn or in a cup with an unsavory beverage you have to drink before you can get yourself free).

There are undoubtedly strict-bondage scenarios when practicing alone is unsafe (such as erotic asphyxiation, which should always be done with a partner).

When you're alone, it's harder to accomplish this form of self-bondage because you need to set clear boundaries for how far you can push yourself without hurting yourself.

Is Self-Bondage Safe? 

Your first inquiry is probably this, and it makes sense. However, let's all live to orgasm another day. Getting off is fantastic.

Playing this way might be risky since you're alone, and nobody is there to assist you if things go out of hand or you need assistance.
Self-bondage is still permissible, but you must take all necessary precautions to ensure that a good time does not quickly turn into a horrible one.

When using rope or chains to tie oneself, some risks may include tissue/nerve injury, asphyxia, and cutting off blood circulation (if your binds are too tight).

Precautions

Planning Ahead

You should do your research on the self-bondage techniques you're interested in trying, become comfortable with the ropes, binds, or restraints you're using (you might try them out on a partner first), and try to plan as much of your solo session as you can, taking into account any potential problems.

Ease Into It

Start your sessions in a well-lit room with some basic bindings that you may reverse. Once you gain a little more proficiency in the art of self-bondage, there will come a time for more intricate, complex constraints.

When you first begin to practice increasingly difficult binds, stay away from timed restrictions and intricate rope ties. When you do, set a time limit and adhere to it (even if you're having fun).

Escape Plan

Keep items close at hand that might assist you in escaping your confines if things go out of control since mistakes can happen even when we plan things out.

Make sure all of these items are within reach and that one hand may become free if you need to use scissors, bolt cutters, or your mobile phone to call for help.

It's a good idea to prepare a backup escape strategy in case things don't work out as you had hoped.

Be Wise

Your pleasure is crucial, but try not to lose it when creating a complex self-bondage situation.

Extensive, challenging, tight, or tough to escape ties may be exciting, but keep the most challenging binds for couple's play instead of making things too complex. The more complex something is, the more likely something will go wrong.

Avoid using the mouth, neck, and head restraints while playing self-bondage. These are often riskier, and errors might be deadly if you don't have a companion to aid out when necessary.

Self-Bondage for Beginners

Do you want to take a brave step into the unknown to see whether this self-bondage thing is what would set you free?

The largest question is what are the most popular (and simplest) means of restraint that also allow for quick release.

Handcuffs


Even if it's only from the one time your college roommates got you handcuffs as a joke present for your birthday, you probably have some experience with them.

Because they may be constrictive and yet quite simple to escape from when the key is nearby, handcuffs are a good starting place for anybody interested in any time of restriction or bondage play.

Rope


If you're interested in self-restraints, a rope is a fantastic place to start since it's adaptable, and you can cut straight through it with scissors if you get trapped.

There are several uses for it, and you can even find online lessons on how to tie anything from simple ties to more complex solo rope ties, like this gorgeous rope skirt.


Tape / Plastic Wrap


Once you know what you can do with that plastic wrap in your kitchen drawer, you won't ever look at it in the same way again.

Restricting yourself and covering part of your body with plastic wrap is a terrific way to test out self-bondage if you're intrigued but aren't ready to invest in locks, chains, or rope.
