    I'm new to BDSM, so I would appreciate if you could tell me what kind of rope is the best to use, and direct me to some knot tying guide, so that I can tie my partner up without hurting her, leaving marks on her wrists etc...
    Thanks a lot...

    the above page had a great deal of videos showing how to tie various knots.

    As for the type of rope, cotton is going to be the one most commonly recommended to you. Also the width should be around 3/8 inch or greater. Thinner ropes are not normally recommended for beginners.

    Home Depot has a polyester cotton blend rope that is amazing.

    i personally like either 5/16" braided nylon with the core taken out or (1/4 or 3/8 depending on my mood and what im doing) hemp.

    I'm going to suggest that whoever can make it to a Home Depot do so and look into the ropes they have there - by and large for the price. It's much much less money then what I've seeb online for Bondage ropes and so on.

    And it feels great, I almost tired up the woman behind me lol

    What's the rope made out of?

    I prefer using ropes that I've created out of my own hair, pubic hair and scalp hair. I feel that it increases the pleasure as it feels like I am causing the torture and humiliation, not my partner.

    I like ropes, but last time I used them I got these horrific capillary bursts around my nipples and genitals. This being said, I would use a soft material unless u want some blood, which i love as it adds a taste and horror which is wonders on the senses.

    Like I was saying, the stuff I found at home depot is really soft. I posted info and price in the Budget BDSM thread.

    the rope that i use is made out of cotton i think - it is hollow inside so it flexes with you - its about £8.50 for 15 metres which i dont think is too bad
