I love playing bondage games and I take great pleasure from the care and attention that has to be put into perfecting some of its more elaborate forms. Something like shibari, with all of its meticulous attention to detail, can be spectacular in its aesthetics and deliciously restrictive in its function. It takes a lot of preparation and demands a lot of skill and plenty of time to execute it properly and make it authentic.

Bondage tape is an easy alternative if I am feeling a little lazy or if I want a sense of surprise and spontaneity. It’s cheap to buy, quick to apply and avoids the feeling of claustrophobia that heavy, unyielding rope can cause. Bondage tape is also incredibly versatile and it can adapt to almost any variation of tying, strapping or wrapping that you can think of.

Bondage tape, because of a deceptively weak appearance when it is tugged free of its cardboard reel, can fool you into imagining that it is a slightly vanilla option. It’s comical variety of bright colours and a resemblance to thin latex certainly gives that impression. The real value of bondage tape can be felt, quite literally, when layers of it begin to criss-cross your breasts and are used to secure your wrists and ankles together like metal cuffs.

Finally, when the bondage tape is peeled away, the feeling it leaves on the skin is very similar to latex and so is the clammy sensation.

If you want to exploit the versatility of bondage tape a little further then I can suggest its couture value. Lengths of tape can be worked into pieces of temporary fetish clothing like a bra, thong or harness.

They can be made, used and then thrown away.

Not like a shibari rope.

Not at all.
