The rope I do is about people. Ever since people started asking me about rope and why I liked it this has been my defining answer. It says as clearly as I can that for merope is not about rope. It’s about it’s effect, it’s ability to communicate, it’s beauty. It’s about everything other than the rope itself.
Bondage can be anything where a person is bound, it’s an all encompassing term. As for Rope Bondage, Shibari and Kinbaku… Rope bondage is any bondage involving rope at all. Damsel in distress stuff. TKB right through to Shibari. Shibari just means tying. It doesn't even mean bondage tying specifically unless used in the context of bondage. Any Japanese style tying might be Shibari.
