Suspension Bondage at Erotica 2013

It’s Fetish Friday! The mayhem of Erotica 2013 is over and we can share some of the weird and wonderful things we saw! Today, that’s suspension bondage.

The Cirque du Soleil of the bondage world, suspension bondage is rope bondage for the hardcore, artistic and very talented. It shouldn’t be attempted by amateurs.

Much like many painful pleasures in the world of BDSM, suspension bondage originates from an ancient form of torture. Japanese torture, to be precise. It makes you wonder whether anyone ever enjoyed it, back when it was meant for cruelty.

Who Enjoys Suspension Bondage?

Anyone into regular bondage may enjoy the added thrill of being helplessly suspended. Suspension makes the sub an inanimate object, completely at the mercy of someone else.

For the ‘rigger’, the pleasure may be in seeing their submissive, not on a bed or floor, but proudly suspended mid-air like a piece of kinky artwork.

At Erotica, an expert in the field told the crowd this type of restraint shouldn’t be attempted by beginners. He therefore recommended at least two years’ experience in ordinary rope bondage first.

When you’re preparing a subject for suspension, the rigger should ensure the majority of the pressure is not on one part of the body but spread across a wider surface area. It’s also vital to ensure no rope is ever placed around the neck as any mistakes could prove to be fatal.

If you’re an intermediate, however, why not try partial suspension? This is where the subject keeps one foot on the floor to support their weight.

Above all, trust and communication is key to any BDSM or edge play. Suspension bondage should be thrilling and not frightening!

If you feel ready to take rope bondage to the next level, give suspension bondage a try and let us know how it goes.
