I have a confession to make in that I have been a bad friend to ML in terms of supporting her Tie Me Up project. We have never really been bitten by the rope bug but we had vowed to use the opportunity and inspiration that her fortnightly rope prompt brought to make some headway with it. HL likes tying knots and is quite good at it so it is something we have tried. I think it tends to be quite slow when you are starting out and has just had a more chilled vibe than some of the play we like.
Saying that, we did take part in the bit gag prompt which we really enjoyed and had committed to do more. We had an issue with rope length and you can see from this that, although HL ordered more, we now have three pieces, all the same length and still no longer piece. However, back to this week’s task and a booty harness it was. Although not wildly sexual, the tying does allow time to connect and it is nice to be doing something with HL. Or rather, having him do something to me.
The final tie wasn’t quite like the one he had set out to do but it was a booty harness and my buttocks felt nice and secure. I know that some people wear these sorts of things under clothes and even instead of clothes, and this is something that I can see the appeal of. You certainly can’t forget about the fact that you are tied when in this sort of bond so it works nicely for maintaining the mindset.
So task completed and I am looking forward to doing more. We have decided to make a rope tie part of the weekly connection that we do on a Wednesday, where possible, and this feels like a positive thing for us.
