What Makes for Creative Rope Bondage?

Recently I was asked online to share images of creative and correct rope bondage, as well as sources of my of inspiration. I know that I didn't give him the answer he wanted. The person wanted pretty photos of lines, knots and twists. They would have liked a diagram of self-animated rope sliding over and around each other, forming geometric patterns. They wanted a still life of fiber on flesh to dissect.

I didn't give that.

It's as if he was looking at a tree to consider a forest, and asking for a photo of the perfect forest. I was asking him to step in to a forest, walk, smell the earth, feel the wind and sun on his cheek.

To me, photos of bondage are shadows of the playtime with rope. Step by step image of rope on disembodied people may give some rudimentary structural direction, but it's like trying to learn how to dance from a book full of foot prints.

Often people tend to think of the shape created when the rope tying is done as what bondage IS.

I think that's just the artifact. It's yesterday's snow angel shape melting into snow.

For me, rope bondage is the process that's co-created between the people. After all, the fun of making snow angels is in the MAKING of it, of rolling around in fresh, fluffy snow with abandon and joy with friends - isn't it?

with love & lunacy,


(Michele Serchuk captured this moment in a photos as I was playing with a friend.)

Where: Purple Passion. 211 West 20th Street, New York NY

Call to register 212-807-0486

When: Wednesday, Nov 11th, 2015. 7pm - 9pm

Bringing a new class to NYC!

In this hand-on class learn how to make beautiful and intricate head bondage in Midori’s signature style!

In the mid 1990s she learned a special way to make head harnesses from the legendary rope bondage enthusiast Lou Duff. Midori took that inspiration and developed a couple of unique styles.

Head cages made of ropes and cords create intense sensory experiences, which can often lead to deep emotional experiences for the receiver. Feelings can range from calm, submission, surrender, intimacy, meditation, of being captured, embrace, mind quieting and more. For many it’s a special set of sensations like no other. Of course the head harness makes for great attachment points to effectively limit a person’s movement for some sexy fun bondage games! These are also excellent alternative hoods for those who are claustrophobic.

In this class Midori will first demonstrate a couple of styles. Then lead you step by step through the foundations. After that you’ll have time to practice.


  • Safety Scissors
  • Long hair? Hair that gets in the way? Hair ties, bandana, wig caps highly recommended. Midori will bring a few extras just in case.
  • Long thin cords! 50 feet lengths are great to start with. Longer is fine.

Examples of this are:

Midori will likely have a few cords to borrow or to buy on site.

Wear: Comfortable clothing to sit in. You’ll be sitting for a while as you create this.

If possible, please remove large jewelry or jewelry that could snag in the head and face area. You can work around it, but it’s easier if you don’t have to.

Pair attendance is highly encouraged, but solos are welcome as well. If you come solo, you’ll be paired with other solos for practice.
