Tying the Male Physique – March 7th 2015

Posted on Updated on

Tying the male physique

aka not all rope bottoms are 45kg Japanese girls!

With the Winter coming to an end and spring around the corner STORE returns to Luke & Jack with the Tying the Male Physique workshop. It’s well known that the majority of resources out there presume that a female body is being tied. It’s also no surprise that ties that look fantastic on the female body are a tad unflattering on a male. Chest ties particularly.

That’s why STORE will be running a class dedicated to the art of making our boy bottoms look and feel their best in rope.

We make no presumptions about gender and are simply talking about body shape.

No previous experience required

Date: Saturday 7th March 2015, 1230 to 1630
Venue: Luke & Jack, 45 Virginia St, Glasgow
Cost: £5 per person – pay on the door
Facilitators for this session:

AijinNawa– has been tying up boys of all genders for a few years now and has spent significant time in the last 2 years thinking about the differences between rope that works for male and female bodies. She is keen to promote the tying of men and encourage them to explore the ropes on both sides. Men come in all shapes and sizes and all of them can be beautiful!

Topics covered:

  • Practicalities of working with the male body
  • Chest ties that don’t give “man boobs”
  • Overcoming strength with technique
  • Practical positions to keep a man in his place

An interesting hip harness from Bones & Rope:

Bones and Rope

… because what the world really needs right now is another bloody hip harness…!

We came up with this hip harness recently because we wanted a harness that allowed extremely dynamic positions and that wouldn’t restrict leg movement (particularly opening and closing). We played around with various ideas, and this is the result of our ‘research’, so we’re putting it out there for ‘peer review’ 🙂

We think this hip harness is:

  1. Versatile – there are two versions, with and without a hip line, both comfortable in suspension,
  2. Solid – doubling the rope at the front stem prevents the leg frictions and the waist friction from being able to slip in suspension,
  3. Comfortable – the leg frictions are towards the inside thigh, and the hip support rope doesn’t restrict leg movement (e.g. opening the legs). The hip support constitutes a ‘mesh’ at the back which offers extra support for the buttocks in…
